Speakers and Sound Quality

13. Truke Fit 1

Cheapest TWS Earbuds
  • Bass-heavy sound signature
  • Splash-proof design
  • Up to 3.5-4 hours of battery life

Truke Fit 1 is a budget in-ear style TWS earbud with a bass-heavy sound signature.

Priced under Rs.1,000 in the Indian market, the Truke Fit looks and feels slightly premium than many other earbuds we have tested in this segment.

Design and Build Quality

First things first, the Truke Fit 1 is made from hard plastic materials which don’t feel cheap.

The use of plastic material helps in making these earbuds very lightweight and comfortable to wear for longer periods at a stretch.

The earbuds themselves look bulky from the distance but fits very well inside the ear canal.

Even if you use these earbuds while doing physical exercises, it won’t fall or come out of the ears.

The charging case has a matte finish which feels nice in hand. There are four LED light indicators to notify you of the battery levels.

The micro USB charging port is situated on the backside of this charging case.

Speakers and Sound Quality

The Truke Fit 1 is advertised by the company to have bass-boosted sound output.

This in-ear style wireless earbud delivers rich and deep bass which doesn’t unnecessarily overpower the vocals or the high-end notes.

The vocals sound clean and without any lag while listening to music or when watching movies.

These TWS earbuds are not meant for gaming. There is a significant lag while gaming, so we’d advise you to use a wired earphone for gaming purposes.

The inline mic on this TWS earbud works reasonably well and doesn’t distort the sound much.

Miscellaneous

The Truke Fit 1 has microphones on either of the two earbuds. This helps it to be used as a monopod if you’d prefer that.

The physical buttons on the Truke fit one support multi-press gestures for media controls and summoning the Google voice assistant.

Battery Life

The 50mAh battery inside the Truke fit earbuds will last up to 3.5 hours on a single charge.

Using the 900mAh battery pack inside the charging case, you can charge these earbuds three times over, taking the total battery life count to 12 hours.

Verdict

The Truke Fit 1 is an affordable TWS earbud with emphasis on bass – making it a perfect choice for bass heads with budget constraints.

Decent build quality along with good wearing comfort makes this earbud a compelling choice for a budget under Rs.1,000.
