Geekee G350 True Wireless Earbuds 2021 Review.
The GeeKee True Wireless Earbuds use ear-tips with unusually good noise isolation. In terms of comfort, they’re comparable with almost any other pair of ear tips.
The GeeKee G350 True Wireless Earbuds are compatible with essentially anything that supports Bluetooth.
In addition to the ear tips, they include a 12” USB cable, which can help connect the charging case to a USB charger.
The first time you use the Geekee G350’s, you’ll need to follow a short installation process to get your kit up and running.
It starts with charging the case and then following some fairly simple pairing instructions.
After you’ve got everything connected for the first time, the earbuds will help connect the smartphone when it’s removed from the case, and automatically turn it off when you place them back inside the case to be recharged.
GeeKee earbuds can struggle to maintain a connection under certain circumstances. The buds seem to struggle in environments where there’s lots of traffic in the air.
If you’re at a popular gym with a dozen other Bluetooth headsets being used around you, then you might find some problems with the connection.
- Excellent sound quality for the price.
- Secure, comfortable fit.
- Compact, lightweight case.
- Very good battery life.
- High latency.
- Poor call quality in mono mode.
Battery and Connectivity
The G350 earbud batteries last for approximately seven hours on a single charge. This assumes you’re listening at medium volume, so your actual results may vary.
Even so, this is an impressive set of batteries that will last you a very long time. For most people, you’ll be able to go a few days without charging. If you do need to top off, just pop the earbuds into the case.
It provides 33 hours of additional charge, for a total rating of 40 hours. Charging the earbuds takes about 90 minutes if the batteries are completely dead.
Besides not sounding terrible, the other thing I really like about the GeeKees is the size and fit. The charging case is very small and definitely pocket-friendly.
The buds are equally small and unobtrusive, with one big flat button on the outer surface.
They use the silicone ‘hook’ type wing for stability, and I found the fit extremely comfortable.
Geekee True Wireless Earbuds
Oftentimes when a pair of truly wireless earbuds use the outer surface as a button, it becomes impossible to control the thing without jamming it further into your ear canal.
But GeeKee has somehow found the balance. The button only takes up half of the surface but is raised along the outer edge.
I found it both easy and comfortable to press this button without assaulting my ears. A welcome change.
So while I was impressed by the physical design, I was not impressed by the software design. For example, the battery life is only 3 hours, 15 with the case. I guess you can only do so much for $50.
The sound quality is really what makes these buds a decent investment. Let me be clear: they sound good for the price.
The bass is solid and thumping, but honestly, anyone can crank an earbud full of bass and call it a day. Luckily, GeeKee doesn’t do that.
What sets GeeKee apart is that the lows, mids, and highs each sound okay in their own right.
Cheap true wireless buds will often pick one frequency they like and boost it, with no regard to the other frequencies. You get swollen sound signatures that work decently for one thing but sound like crap for everything else.
The midrange and high end both have a fair amount of detail, and even a soundstage to speak of!
True wireless earbuds are notorious for sounding cramped and boxy when done poorly, but I could actually hear some left-right action going on with the GeeKee.
As with all Bluetooth sound signatures, the high end is the first to suffer. There’s some roll-off in the highs. The upper midrange is slightly emphasized, bringing vocals and cymbals forward.
The low mids are tightened by comparison, but the low end is thick enough to stop things from sounding thin overall.
Why You Should Get It
The G650 case can be charged via USB Type-C or wireless Qi charging. USB Type-C provides the fastest charge speeds, at less than two hours.
For most people, this is going to be the preferred method. That said, Qi charging provides some added convenience. You just drop your earbud case on the charger and walk away.
The G350 buds connect to your phone via the Bluetooth 5.0 protocol. This is the latest and greatest version of Bluetooth and offers a few distinct benefits over older versions. It provides a more stable signal, reducing drops to virtually zero.
