First Look: Tronsmart Trip and Tronsmart Onyx Ace Pro

Artboard 1

Tronsmart makers of all sorts of Audio, Power, Gaming Accessories and Cable & Hub products recently released two new products: Tronsmart Trip and Tronsmart Onyx Ace Pro. These two new products are expansions of their already popular personal audio products and we got a chance to take a look at these new products. Keep in mind this is our first look, and our full feature review will be published soon.

The Tronsmart Trip is a waterproof (IPX7) rated portable speaker with up to 20 hours of playback time and support for Bluetooth 5.3. This compact dual-driver speaker includes a 10W RMS speaker and a built-in microphone. Included in the box is: 1 x Tronsmart Trip Portable Outdoor Speaker, 1 x 3.5mm Audio Cable, 1 x Type-C Charging Cable. The speaker weighs in at 328g (11.57oz) and is 182 x 99 x 48mm (7.17 x 3.89 x 1.89inch).

This speaker is definitely targeted for portable light usages, such as impromptu picnics in the park or small outdoor gatherings but is not suitable for larger venues. The sound that emanates from the device is well-rounded, however, quality is drastically degraded when not directionally in front of the device.

From our initial impressions, the Trip is well designed and feels plenty premium for being a budget-conscious device. The fabric-woven material on the outside is soft and will withstand most outdoor usage. Keep in mind that it is only IPX7 rated, meaning that Tronsmart has not tested the device to conform to an IP rating at this time but has designed it to meet achieve IPX7 spec (Immersion, up to 1 meter (3 ft 3 in) depth).

The Onyx Ace Pro wireless earbuds are the first Qualcomm aptX Adaptive headphones from Tronsmart. The aptX Adaptive technology is a wireless audio technology that allows high-quality bit rate content to be streamed from your device to your ears. Using this next-generation audio codec, Tronsmart built their new in-ear earbuds to compete with more well-established pricey competitors like the Apple AirPods or LG Tone Earbuds.

Inside each of the earbuds is a 13mm composite polymer driver that supports a broad frequency response of 20-20kHz. With up to 6.5 hours of playback time on a single charge and 27 hours with the carry case (according to Tronsmart), these headphones should last the entire day of moderate usage. These headphones are IPX5 rated according to Tronsmart, but because there isn’t independent testing data to support this, users should exercise care when using in humid/wet environments or in inclement weather.

Supported by the earphones is the modern Bluetooth profile (BT 5.2) which has a range of about 10M (33ft) when used in open spaces. The headphones weigh in as a package with the case at 420g (.93lbs) and the earphones themselves are 4 grams (.008lbs).

Our initial impressions of these earbuds seem to suggest that these headphones are best suited for someone who is looking for average audio quality but needs an alternative to expensive Apple Airpods. They are semi-durable and won’t replace at least your regular earbuds but may be suitable for situations where you might be prone to damage a more expensive pair or for active families with children.

Where to buy them?

The Onyx Ace Pro Bluetooth 5.2 Headphones can be purchased on AliExpress right now for $36.14 CAD or USD $26.99 and the Tronsmart Trip for $21.99USD.

Looking for alternative devices?

Devices like the Linearflux Hypersonic 360 or Creative Outlier headphones, both feature similar technology and are similar price points. Also, if you’re looking for a Bluetooth speaker with a much larger sound profile, you may want to consider the Tronsmart Bang which recently was awarded our editor’s choice award.
