The Raycon E55 is an updated version of the Raycon E50 Truly Wireless, with a notably warmer sound and significantly more bass. These headphones are small, rather comfy for in-ears, and an excellent alternative for sports, but if you don’t like bass, you won’t like them. On the plus side, they have a 5-hour battery life, which is respectable for completely wireless headphones.

The Raycon E55 is almost identical to the Raycon E50 Truly Wireless in terms of design. They’re a pair of decently fashionable true wireless headphones that come in a variety of colours to match your personal style. They’re little and don’t stick out too far from your ears.
The Raycon E55 in-ear headphones are reasonably comfy. They don’t put too much pressure on your eardrum and don’t go too far into your ear canal. They also come with a variety of tip variations so you can find a better fit. However, some people may find the hard stability fin annoying, especially while listening for lengthy periods of time. On the plus side, they’re quite light. Consider the Raycon E25 Truly Wireless if you want a little more comfortable Raycon choice, or the JBL TUNE 220TWS Truly Wireless if you prefer an earphone design that doesn’t go as deep into the ear canal.
The control scheme of the Raycon E55 is identical to that of the Raycon E50 Truly Wireless. It’s simple and basic to use. Single taps play and pause music, double taps skip tracks ahead and backward, and triple taps increase or decrease volume. Unfortunately, while having volume control is convenient, using triple taps to make several volume changes takes a long time.
These in-ear headphones, like all in-ear headphones, don’t trap much heat within or around your ear, so you shouldn’t sweat more while working out.
The Raycon E55, like all truly wireless headphones, is incredibly compact and easy to carry around in your pockets or a bag.
The case on the Raycon E55 is a step up from the Raycon E50’s. Instead of being magnetic and completely removable, the lid is now permanently attached to the case. Wireless charging is also supported, which is a good feature. In addition, rather than being inverted upside down like in the E50’s casing, the buds are now facing you in their natural direction.
The Raycon E55 is a well-made device. They have enough density to withstand a few drops, although they aren’t as high-end as some other headphones, such as the Raycon E100. The materials utilised have a cheap feel to them, and the shiny appearance is easily fingerprinted. On the plus side, they’re water resistant to IPX4, however we don’t test this ourselves.
The Raycon E55 is extremely stable because of the inbuilt stiff stability fins. The headphones do not move inside your ears when you move your heBatteryad, which is perfect for sports. Unfortunately, unlike the Jaybird Vista Truly Wireless, you can’t change the size of the fins.
The noise isolation of the Raycon E55 is pretty poor. Their fit doesn’t block a lot of noise passively, and they won’t be the ideal option for commuting because they don’t block low-end noises like vehicle rumble. On the plus side, they do a good job of blocking out ambient noise and noise from an A/C unit, making them suitable for use in an office.
On a single charge, the Raycon E55 can play for roughly 5 hours, which should be adequate for most people. They charge quickly and come with a case that can hold up to five more charges, which is quite convenient. You can also use one bud while the other charges.
Bluetooth 5.0 is supported by these fully wireless headphones. They have a good range, so if you keep your source close to you, you shouldn’t have any problems, but their latency is a little higher than typical for Bluetooth headphones. When watching video content, some people may experience a delay, though some apps and devices compensate for this.
The leakage performance of the Raycon E55 is excellent. They nearly don’t leak, and only higher frequencies may leak a little, resulting in a barely perceptible, thin-sounding leakage, as with most in-ears. You should be able to increase the volume of your music to block out more noise, but we don’t recommend doing so in really quiet circumstances.
The sound characteristics of the Raycon E55 are particularly bass-heavy and warm. They have more bass than the Raycon E50 Truly Wireless, which some people might prefer. However, this overpowers the voice and main instruments, cluttering the overall mix. They also lack information in higher frequencies, emphasizing low-end frequencies even more. Check out the TaoTronics SoundLiberty 79 Fully Wireless if you’re looking for truly wireless in-ears at a comparable price point with a far better sound profile.
They’ll be ideal for active folks looking for comfortable, portable headphones. Their warm sound profile may get you revved up when listening to bass-heavy music, but it’s not ideal for neutral listening. On the plus side, they have a good isolation performance that can be used during a commute or at work, though you’ll have to recharge them frequently because they won’t last a whole day.
