Truke BTG Ultra Review: A powerhouse TWS for gamers

Affordable gaming TWS releases in India come few and far between and often lack the comprehensive audio output preferred by gamers. Truke, one of the biggest players in the affordable TWS segment, has put out an exciting pair of gaming earbuds to remedy that. Priced at just Rs 899 (Rs 854 after discount), the Truke Btg Ultra promises to offer a thunderous bang for your buck. The gaming TWS crossed our desks a couple of weeks back and we have been using it ever since. Here is our Truke BTG Ultra review.

Truke BTG Ultra Review: Design

Here’s what you get inside the Truke BTG Ultra retail box:

  • Charging case with earbuds inside
  • 2 pairs of extra ear tips
  • USB Type-A to Type-C charging cable
  • User manual
  • Warranty card

The charging case is made entirely out of plastic. The glossy lid feels a little flimsy, which is something we expect from TWS products in this price range. The hinge, on the other hand, is strong and inspires confidence. You can fidget with the lid all you want without worrying about loosening its fit.

The backpack-themed design of the charging case is quite refreshing to see in a segment that isn’t known for products that exude personality. The lid covers three-fourths of the front panel. A button-shaped cutout in the middle of the lid houses the illuminated Truke logo. We prefer this minimal logo to the gaudy RGB lighting.

Flipping open the lid, you’ll find the earbuds nestled in their cutouts in a vertical position. The stem of the earbuds carries the Truke branding and the illuminated logo. The standard in-ear design offers a comfortable, snug fit. We did not experience any ear fatigue after wearing the earbuds for multiple hours.

The upper panel of the stem is touch-sensitive and allows users to control the media playback and other settings. Tapping the left earbud three times triggers the gaming mode. The touch controls are tuned nicely. Most earbuds struggle with registering triple touches but that was not the case here. However, these touch controls can get accidentally triggered while trying to adjust the fit of the earbuds.

An IPX5 rating ensures that the earbuds are well-guarded against the damage caused by sweat and water splashes. We used our review unit of the Truke BTG Ultra while working out and it crushed the performance even when things got sweaty.

Truke BTG Ultra Review: Performance

Delivering the audio output on the Truke BTG Ultra are 13mm graphene drivers. With Bluetooth 5.4 onboard, pairing the earbuds to your device is as easy as it gets. Once connected, you can choose between SBC and AAC codecs. There’s also support for Siri and Google Assistant. Three taps to the right earbud trigger the voice assistant of your choice.

The warm audio output produced by the BTG Ultra focuses on the low end of the frequency spectrum and will certainly appeal to bass enthusiasts. The mids and the highs suffer from the overpowered bass and sometimes fail to gain appropriate representation on the soundstage. We listened to folk, hyperpop, classic rock, and grunge on the BTG Ultra and found the blanket of bass over the mix to dampen the listening experience.

Being a gaming-focused TWS, the Truke BTG Ultra does redeem itself with its ultra-low latency. In gaming mode, it can drop down to 40ms latency and relay the in-game audio without any lag or delay. The audio output while playing games like Asphalt 9 and Call of Duty Mobile is rich in quality. While playing first-person shooter games, the faint taps of approaching footsteps and other subtle sounds were relayed well.

The Quad Mic ENC technology does a good job of extracting your voice from the surrounding ambient noises and relaying it to the gaming lobby. The connection was stable and did not drop once while gaming. The sound quality while taking audio and video calls indoors is ideal. However, it takes a significant hit in outdoor conditions.

The 40mAh battery pack on either earbud offers up to 10 hours of playtime. Using low latency mode and pushing the volume to a higher level consistently limits the battery backup to 7-8 hours. The 500mAh charging case offers an additional 60 hours of playtime. With just a 10-minute quick charge, the earbuds can deliver up to 10 hours of playtime.

Verdict

The Truke BTG Ultra has a lot of things going on for it. We like its original design, tasteful LED lighting, ultra-low latency setting, and versatile battery. If you’re only concerned with gaming, the BTG Ultra is one of the best buys you can make at this price point. The only catch is the dollop of bass that clouds over the soundstage. It may be up your alley if you’re a basshead, but for those who prefer a more neutral soundstage, there may be better options out there.

Truke BTG Ultra: Pros

  • Very affordable
  • 40ms latency
  • Tasteful design
  • Versatile battery

Truke BTG Ultra: Cons

  • Too much focus on the low-end frequencies
