Hey Lovely Peoples, Tribit is definitely a classic favorite for many people. They have proven time and again that they know what they’re doing when it comes to earbuds. Let’s check out their new release Tribit Flybuds C1.
So these are not priced at a budget earbuds price but somewhere around the mid-tier earbuds price point. However, Soundpeats Sonic offers almost the same spec, but at a lower price.
So, let’s see which of these is a better option?
Let’s get into the review of Tribit FlyBuds C1
Tribit Flybuds C1 : Design and Build
So the Flybuds C1 is designed like most True Wireless earbuds you’ll find in the market. The case itself is very similar to what you get with the likes of Aukey or Haylou.
But I will say that the Flybuds C1 is not made with cheap materials. It comes with a super lovely rubberized plastic finish that gives the earbuds a lovely grip when you hold them in your hands. This type of material also means that it doesn’t get Scuffed up easily like how Haylou or Aukey does at the top of the earbuds.
You get the nice TriBit logo in a gloss black finish precisely in the type of style and finish that we like from them (or at least me).
At the bottom of the case, you get a nice USB Type-c charging port. When you plug in the USB four leds in the front, will tell You the amount of battery left inside the case. It is very convenient and efficient.
It also gives you a simple button in the front of the case where you can press, and it immediately tells you the amount of battery you have inside the case.
The lid opening action of the C1 is also really smooth, but when it reaches the top, it doesn’t hold itself open for you to access the earbuds.
I wish that the lid would hold on to itself a little more because these are the little things that actually give a pleasant experience to the earbuds case and the earbuds.
Earbuds are designed with the AirPod style type of ear tips. And, in my opinion, these are the most comfortable type of ear tips, at least for my ear.
You get a very nice design that gives the earbuds a kind of steampunk era look.
You get a smoke black glossy plastic, which is really nice, and the earbuds themselves are controlled with a Physical button on the side.
Tribit Flybuds C1 : Features
Spec wise you’ll be getting Qualcomm’s 3040 chipsets. That gives you support for Apt-X, AAC, and SBC audio codec, which is the pinnacle of what you get in the mid-tier earbuds and a mid-tier chipset similar to the sonic.
The earbuds also come with an IPX5 water resistant rating, which is sufficient for your active lifestyle and should protect you from sweat and most of the elements out there.
The FlyBuds C1 also comes with a super seamless, mono, and stereo mode, providing you with a very seamless experience.
Lastly, TriBit FlyBuds earbuds don’t come with multi-point support, so no luck connecting more than one device.
Tribit Flybuds C1 : Controls
TriBit also nails it when it comes to the control of the Flybuds C1. Earbuds provide you with a complete set of controls for all.
Press and hold on the right earbuds will slowly increase the volume and to decrease the volume press and hold on the left earbuds, and it will reduce the volume
To play a pause media pick, simply press once on either side of the earbuds, and it will play your media and to skip tracks forwards, Press two times on your right earbuds and it will skip forward and press two times on the left, earbuds and it will skip backward
Lastly, to call your assistant, press three times on either side of the earbuds, this will enable you to pause your media and pull out your assistant.
So that’s basically all of the controls you get with the TriBit Flybuds C1.
The sound signature of the C1 is really quite solid, providing you with good coverage across the range, having good bass emphasis, and sounding bright enough for music to sound exceptionally nice.
The bass performance of the C1 is excellent and rumbling. It’s especially good when you blast these earbuds. If you’re a bass head, you’ll definitely find these earbuds super satisfying.
I like how TriBit tuned these earbuds, even though the bass on these are rumbling. The mids highs and vocals are all not sacrificed. Well executed here.
Some stages on these are not the widest, and since these run a pretty small 6mm PU composite diaphragm.
They don’t give you that open feeling. However, the sound separation on these is fantastic, so songs with lots of instruments are clearly separated, and watching movies with these earbuds is also super enjoyable.
The C1 is also an excellent earbuds when it comes to call quality, and I especially think that the new 3040 chipset plays a big part in this call.
Quality is stable and clear in any situation, and it also does a good job with lowering down at noisy environments, really good stuff anyways.
Tribit Flybuds C1 : Battery
Tribit FlyBuds C1 runs the latest Qualcomm 3040 chipset. It’s the same as what you’ll get with the Soundpeats Sonic. The Tribit Flybuds C1 gives you a super respectable 12 hours of battery life and, together with the case, gives You 50 hours extra playback time, contrasting it to the Sonic with the same chipset.
The sonic gives you a longer 15 hours of playback time but has a more small case.
Sonic only gives you additional 35 hours of playback time due to its case size.
The earbuds take about one and a half hours, and the case takes about two hours to fully charge.
Tribit Flybuds C1 : Latency
So latency on the C1 is also really nice, giving you very good performance for movies and videos.
Gaming is also really nice with casual gaming. You don’t generally detect lag unless you really go look for it.
Of course, there are no Bluetooth devices today with absolutely zero latency. Still, if you’re using them casually, these are pretty much enjoyable anyways.
Ultimately, it’s nice to see earbuds companies starting to adopt the latest Bluetooth 5.2 standard, improving the battery life significantly.
Personally, I think that this and the Soundpeats Sonic both really good
Both wireless earbuds won’t disappoint you at all.
Tribit FlyBuds C1 Comparisons Summary
Soundpeats T2 vs Tribit Flybuds C1
Compared to Soundpeats T2 sound signature of the Tribit C1 is really quite solid and similar to T2, providing you with good coverage across the range, having good bass emphasis, and sounding bright enough for music to sound exceptionally nice.
If you’re a bass head, you’ll definitely find both of these earbuds super satisfying.
FIIL T1 Pro vs Tribit FlyBuds C1
Compared to the strong mids and highs of the FIIl T1 Pro, Tribit Flybuds C1 comes second to FIIL T1 Pro’s Sounding.
C1 is Bass heavy earbud but when you compared it with the sounding of FIIL T1 Pro, T1 Pro gives you higher clarity of sound and better Mid and High Performance.
Even though FIIL T1 pro has an ANC Feature i don’t think it is a factor to consider here since they do not provide anything significant. Despite the poor performance of ANC, Sounding of FIIl T1 Pro is enough factor to consider FIIL T 1 Pro over Tribit C1.
Availability is a factor you should consider when it comes to FIIl T1 Pro. You can try Earfun Free Pro which has the similar performance as FIIL
