RHA TrueConnect Truly Wireless Headphones [Review]

RHA TrueConnect Truly Wireless

The RHA TrueConnect in-ears are adequate, multi-purpose, completely wireless in-ears that are suitable for sports. Their lightweight nature is durable, breathable, and easy to transport. They also passively isolate a large amount of ambient noise, making them perfect for commuting or office use. Unfortunately, they have a very high latency, rendering them unsuitable for watching videos or playing games. On the plus side, their battery life is good for completely wireless in-ears, and some people might prefer their darker sound, particularly when listening to bass-heavy music. They won’t work well with vocal-heavy or classical music.

Style

The RHA TrueConnect are small true wireless earbuds with a circular shape and short stalks that are identical to the Anker SoundCore Liberty Air but feel more premium. They have a matte all-black look that isn’t flashy and doesn’t protrude far from your face, making them even more discreet.

Comfort

These in-ears are reasonably comfortable, and they come with a range of silicone (3 sizes) and foam (3 sizes) tips to help you find the right match. The buds are really light, and once they’re in your face, you won’t even know they’re there. They do, however, get into the ear canal. This may not be suitable for all, as you may become exhausted after a while. Furthermore, since the earbuds have physical buttons, you must gently press them within your ears to register commands, particularly with multi-press commands.

Controls

The TrueConnect’s control scheme is remarkably comprehensive for truly wireless in-ears. Each bud has one physical button that performs the majority of functions. Both earbuds have buttons for playing/pause and taking/ending calls, which is handy. With multiple clicks, you can control the volume on the right earbud and skip tracks on the left. They can also trigger the voice assistant on your mobile. While the control scheme is simple to use, some inputs involve pushing the headphones into your ears to register, especially on multi-press commands. It can be a little disturbing to do so.

Portability

The TrueConnect, like most genuinely wireless designs, is extremely portable. The two buds can comfortably fit into small pockets or a purse, and their case, although slightly bulkier than some other completely wireless headphones, is also convenient to store.

Case

They come with a durable charging case that keeps the headphones secure from scratches and bumps. The case, however, is not IPX5 rated for sweat and water resistance, although the headphones are. This example, unlike most completely wireless cases, does not have a lid and instead swivels open. This is a good touch that keeps the case from opening if it falls. Overall, the case is robust, strong, and well-constructed.

Build Quality

TrueConnect headphones are well-made true wireless headphones. Because of the stalk nature, the earbuds feel dense enough to handle a few accidental drops, but they might split if you sat or walked on them. They do, however, feel sturdy and should not crack under regular use. They’re also IPX5 classified for sweat and water resistance, which is fine, but we don’t measure it ourselves.

Stability

The TrueConnect are comfortable in-ears that can be worn while jogging or participating in most sports. They also come with a range of tip choices, so you should be able to find one that fits comfortably inside your ears. The majority of people would find that the foam tips are more robust than the silicone tips. They shouldn’t slip out of your ears, and since they’re completely wireless, you won’t have to worry about a cord getting in the way or yanking the headphones out because they’ve gotten stuck.

Noise Cancellation

The TrueConnect has a strong noise isolation efficiency. Even if they don’t have any ANC functionality, they block a large amount of ambient noise passively. In the bass range, where engine rumbles reside, they achieved more than 12dB of isolation, which is respectable but remarkable for passive isolation. However, it appears that there is a weak spot around the 200Hz point. They reached an isolation of 18dB in the mid-range, which is excellent for blocking ambient chatter. They provide about 37dB of isolation in the treble range, which is occupied by S and T sounds and fan noises such as A/C systems.

Battery

On a single charge, the TrueConnect lasts over 4 hours, which is fantastic for truly wireless headphones. Additionally, they charge in around an hour, which is fast and convenient. Their charging case can carry four more charges, taking their total battery life to about 20 hours. There’s also a quick-charge feature that promises to give you 50% more battery life after just 15 minutes of charging. Check out the Creative Outlier Air for a longer battery life on a single charge.

Bluetooth

TrueConnect headphones are fully wireless Bluetooth headphones. They support Bluetooth version 5.0, which could have improved overall performance, but we were unable to test this because our current test bench dongle only supports Bluetooth version 4.2. They do not, however, support NFC or multi-device pairing.

TrueConnect has a very high latency, so you’ll find a pause when watching video or playing games. Some applications and devices seem to compensate in some way, but the delay will almost certainly be noticeable.

Verdict & Rating

Rating: 3 out of 5.
