Looking for the best True Wireless Stereo Headphones that match your personal preference doesn’t necessarily mean settling with the most popular or the most expensive ones out in the market.

WHAT’S IN THE PACKAGE
For its price of around Php 2990 (current promo price is Php 1990), the packaging is really good with a hard flip-out box. In front, we have an image preview of the product with some of its key features and as you can tell, this is a limited edition bundled with a 15w wireless charging base. A bundle that you rarely see available out in the market.
On the right side, we don’t have anything.
And then on the other side, we have a sort of authenticity QR code and a bar code.
Flipping it all over at the back, we have a small image preview of both the Joyroom JR-T04S Pro True Wireless Stereo Headphones and the charging base. We also have here a good breakdown of all of its key features and specifications.
Opening the flip-out style packaging, as you can tell, the packaging and its design feel really premium.
Inside the box, we have a user manual, a silicone case with a small carabiner, a USB Type C charging cable, the bundled wireless charging base, and the Joyroom JR-T04S Pro True Wireless Stereo Headphone itself.
I think this is the first time that I’ve encountered a bundled silicone case for a pair of True Wireless Stereo Headphones.
And the fact that this bundle also includes a nice wireless charging base is really awesome especially at its current promo price of just around Php 1990 on Digital Walker. Definitely a steal!
Design, Construction, and Parts Overview
The design and construction of the Joyroom JR-T04S Pro is pretty similar to most True Wireless Stereo Headphones with a square pebble-like shape. But unlike other known brands with glossy finish, this one features a nice fingerprint-resistant matte finish. In front, we have a subtle joyroom logo, a small LED indicator, and a lip for opening the case.
At the back, we have the exact model name, some technical information and certifications.
At the top, we don’t have anything here but we can get an idea about the overall shape of this charging case.
And lastly, at the bottom, we have the USB Type C Charging port.
Upon opening the charging case, of course, we have the earbuds themselves.
The earbuds will also automatically go on pairing mode once the case is opened and all you have to do is turn on Bluetooth on your device like your smartphone, tablet, and PC, pair it and you’re good to go.
As usual, they are nicely secured inside magnetically.
Before we move on to the earbuds themselves, I did a quick weight test for the charging case and it weighs roughly around 43.5g, this is with a built-in 400mAh of battery.
The earbud on the other hand weighs roughly around 3.1g which is super lightweight. This is with 30mAh of battery.
The shape and form factor of these earbuds are quite familiar with an integrated stem for the battery, antenna, and microphone.
One thing that I really don’t like about the design of these earbuds is that unlike the charging case with a matte finish, these are glossy and definitely fingerprint and grease magnets.
I’m also not a fan of this design with a non-adjustable shape unlike other earbuds with replaceable rubber tips. I had these fall off my ears one time but that is more like a personal preference thing since others like this design as well. So I won’t take that as a con.
Around the earbuds, we have the touch area/multifunction button, the main sound output channel, the charging pins at the bottom, and the microphone.
The touch area support, power on/off, play/pause, previous and next, answering calls, hanging up and rejecting calls, and activating voice assistants. It also has a wear-detection sensor that will automatically pause your music whenever you remove an earbud and will resume playback when you put it back.
In terms of the sound quality, right out of the case, the sound signature feels more towards the balanced side with clear mids and highs. However, bass and the low-end are noticeably weak. I would say though that listening to these gives me a more relaxed listening experience partly because of the bass or the lack thereof. It can get pretty loud at maximum volume without blowing the highs too much and I can still listen to it if I want to at maximum volume. And even though I would prefer a little bit more low-end frequencies, I can also say that I’m fairly satisfied with the overall sound quality, especially with noticeably clear vocals. Definitely not for everyone though, especially if you’re expecting an audiophile-level sound quality at this price point, not to mention the lack of aptX support and is only limited to AAC and SBC codecs.
Wireless Performance and Battery Life
The Joyroom JR-T04S Pro features Bluetooth 5.0 and while it’s not the latest protocol, it is still pretty decent.
In terms of battery life, each earbud has a small 30mAh of battery that can last up to 3.5 hours which is fairly standard for these tiny audio devices. Charging the earbuds can take up to 1 hour and the charging case on the other hand has a 400mAh of battery and can be charged for about 1.5 hours.
The bundled wireless charging base supports 15W charging with an output of 5W/7.5W/10W and 15W. The wireless charging base, by the way, weighs around 68g.
To conclude, while the Joyroom JR-T04S Pro is not perfect with weak bass and low-end frequencies and doesn’t support aptX protocol, it still offers an overall good listening experience with clear mids, highs, and vocals and the overall package with a decent design, construction, decent battery life with bundled wireless charging case and silicone case still makes it a decent option especially at its price point, not to mention its current promo price of just around Php 1990 at the time of this writing, offered by Digital Walker. At the end of the day, my recommendation is quite simple, if you’re looking for an audiophile-level experience at this price point, look somewhere else. But if you’re looking for an overall package to get you started with your on-the-go music listening experience, check this out.
