Are the TWS worth the price? Let’s find out in the review below.

The small charging case for the Truke BTG Beta is included in the box. They have an plane jane, simple design and a traditional black body. In addition, Truke BTG Beta is available in different colours. A white version is also an option for gamers. With the Truke logo on the front, the case is built entirely of high-quality plastic and has a matte black finish. An LED indicator, located below the Truke branding, lets you know how the charging case and earphones are doing. So that it may stand upright on a flat surface, the charging case’s bottom is flat.
A USB-C connector for charging the charging case is located at the bottom. A USB-C cable has been included within the box by Truke. The case is portable and light, making it simple to handle. On the charging case for the Truke BTG Beta earbuds, there are no buttons. Simply opening the case causes it to begin searching for a device to pair with.

Talking more about the earbuds, they are extremely lightweight and comfortable to wear, and they offer a secure, comfortable fit that makes them ideal for prolonged use. They have a two-tone appearance. The interior piece has a glossy sheen, while the upper part, which has the Truke logo, has a matte finish. The responsive touch sensors in both earbuds allow you to switch between tracks, accept or decline voice calls, and activate the voice assistant.
The touch sensors are positioned behind the LED indicators which turn red while you keep them within the case, showing that they are charging. The LED indicator shines green when they are completely charged.
The earphones are IPX4-certified to offer protection from water and dust. They are therefore perfect for use while exercising or engaging in sports like running.
Truke BTG Beta Review: Performance
The Truke BTG Beta connects to your device when you open the lid of the case. You have the option to manually turn off the earphones in addition to having them turn off automatically when you place them back in the charging case. The earphones can be turned off by pressing and holding the button on any of the two earbuds for five seconds.
Although the earphones are touch sensitive, we have not had any problems with them and are efficient. Unfortunately, there is no volume control on these earbuds. This implies that the touch sensors on the earphones cannot be used to change the volume. You’ll need to use a linked device to control the volume.
The 13mm Titanium drivers in the Truke BTG Beta earphones are a nice touch. They also support the AAC codec. You can choose to “Use High-quality Audio” in the Bluetooth options. The earbuds are set to the SBC codec by default because this option is deactivated. The AAC codec turns on after you activate this feature.

The Truke BTG Beta earphones support the newest Bluetooth 5.3 version and have a wireless range of approximately 10 metres in terms of connectivity. It only takes a few seconds to reconnect to the previously paired device, and connectivity is immediate because they allow 1-step rapid pairing. Even before you remove the earphones from the case, they will automatically pair with the nearest previously linked device once the case lid is opened.
Due to the lack of dual-pairing functionality, you are unable to use these earphones with two devices at once. The Google Assistant and Apple’s Siri voice assistants are also supported by the earbuds. Double-tap on either earbud to turn it on. Voice assistance is also effective.
The earbuds are equipped with Dual MEMS microphones, one on each earbud, and Deep Neural Network Call Noise Cancellation technology, which uses AI to precisely pick up sound waves. The AI-powered noise cancelling does function ok.
The 40ms low-latency gaming mode is these earphones’ main selling point. Truke BTG Beta has two modes: gaming mode and music mode. Simply touching the left earbud three times toggles the functionality on or off for those who wish to utilise the earphones’ Gaming Mode. The Gaming Mode, which we tested, performed well, but the Music Mode, as the default option, did not particularly wow us. While using it, there was never any lag. During the game, there is no stutter, voice sync problems, or audio lag.
It didn’t deliver a high-quality, immersive musical experience, but its audio quality can at most be described as average. We experimented with many songs from various genres. Although Music Mode produces high-quality treble-heavy music, they don’t seem to have the ability to produce high-quality bass, therefore their potential to create a rich and seamless experience is still limited.
If you prefer deeper bass, you won’t appreciate these earbuds because they typically lean more toward the treble. On higher volume levels, We did not notice any distortion, but when the volume level reaches 80%, the sound begins to seep. Overall, the call quality is decent and ought to be sufficient for even lengthy voice calls.
The BTG’s battery life is likewise excellent. With 100 percent of the volume, you’ll likely get 5 to 6 hours of battery life. By keeping the volume somewhat low and turning the earbuds off when not in use for an extended period of time, you can increase your endurance. While charging, the white light on the earbuds is constantly on.
The green light will appear when the earphones are fully charged, and the blue charging indicator light will turn off after 10 seconds. When the charging case is linked to a USB cable, a white light will continue to flicker. When the charging case is powered up, a white light will remain on until the USB cord is removed.
It’s battery life is excellent. When speaking to someone else on the call, the mic quality is pretty good. ENC functions nicely, and Bluetooth Pairing is quick. Bass is typical. The low-latency gaming mode functions well overall and should be sufficient for casual gamers. Overall, it’s an excellent product for less than Rs 999.
