Belkin SOUNDFORM True Wireless EarBuds

We’re excited to see our friends at Belkin have entered the premium wireless earbud market with SOUNDFORM True Wireless Earbuds. These are beautifully designed and really deliver excellent sound quality!

We unpacked a pair in white (they also come in black) and paired the with both an iPhone Xr and Apple Watch Series 5.

They arrive in pairing mode, so it’s just a matter of opening up your device’s Bluetooth settings, taking the Wireless Earbuds out of their case and connecting the device.

[Comparing designs: SOUNDFORM True Wireless Earbuds vs. Apple AirPods]

One big difference I noticed form-wise between the SOUNDFORM buds and Apple AirPods is the way that they charge inside the case. Apple’s pods land right into the bottom of the case via their shape while Belkin’s buds have a well where the earpiece sits, with space between top of buds and earpiece.

And of course while Apple’s are vertical, Belkin’s are horizontal, with four dots on front showing battery reserve. On the back is a micro-USB outlet.

Three sizes of ear tips are included for a proper fit; while not noise-cancelling, they are meant to isolate noise and offer all-day comfort.

Belkin promises up to five hours of nonstop playtime (the charging case, while not wireless, provides 24 hours of listening on a full charge).

Turn on the ear buds by removing one or both earbuds from their case. To turn them off and recharge, simply put them back into their case and close the lid.

By removing the ear buds and pressing on the touch-sensitive control area for six seconds, you’ll be able to turn them off for a short period of time.

Sound volume, pausing/skipping tracks, answering, ending and rejecting phone calls, and mic control are all done via tapping (one to three times, depending on function) or shortly pressing the buds.

Belkin SOUNFORM Wireless Earbuds

Part of the SOUNDFORM Elite Hi-Fi Smart Speaker + Wireless Charger and BOOST↑CHARGE™ Wireless Charging Stand + Speaker family, these add a portable, splash- and sweat-resistant way of listening to tunes, podcasts, calling up Siri or phone calls.

We do hope that Belkin releases a wireless (Qi-enabled) charging case version in the future (they connect via the included USB to micro-USB cable).
