The SoundPEATS Engine 4 earbuds are designed to fit comfortably and securely in your ears, thanks to the ergonomic shape and three sizes of ear tips. The earbuds have dark gray and silver accents. The charging case follows the same design with a shiny exterior that slides easily in and out of my pockets.
The earbuds sat comfortably in my ears, but did start to become uncomfortable after an hour or so of use, which is common for me with in-ear earbuds. Everybody’s ears are different, so your mileage may vary. There are multiple ear tips included, so you can find the fit that works for you.
The SoundPEATS Engine 4 continue SoundPEATS’ journey into high quality sound, with support for Hi-Res Audio through LDAC. Just a reminder that LDAC is only compatible with newer Android phones at the time of this video. These earbuds will still work with iPhones, just without hi-res audio. The earbuds also feature coaxial dual dynamic drivers for enhanced sound, and support for Bluetooth version 5.3.
The sound quality on the Engine 4 is very good even without LDAC, with rich bass and clear mids and highs. Music sounds well-balanced regardless of whether you’re listening to pop, rock, or even a podcast.
The earbuds also have a built-in mic that performed well for picking up my voice, but I heard some background noise (presumably wireless interference) in an otherwise quiet room.
SoundPEATS Engine4 vs Opera 05
You may be thinking that that the SoundPEATS Engine4 earbuds look similar to the SoundPEATS Opera 05 earbuds, but the main difference between the Engine4 and Opera 05 earbuds is that the Engine4 do not have Active Noise Cancellation (and, therefore, no transparency mode). They do block some noise given their ear-in design, but not as much as the Opera 05 would on an airplane, for example.
The batteries can last up to 12 hours on a single charge, with the charging case providing another 2.5 charges.
The SoundPEATS Engine 4 are equipped with Bluetooth 5.3 technology that helps save power and ensures stable and seamless connectivity with your devices. They also have an auto-turn off function that saves battery life by turning off the earbuds after 3 minutes of disconnection.
