TREBLAB XR500 Wireless Bluetooth Earphones Review
With a product for almost every use and application, Treblab is significantly expanding its share of the low-cost earphone market. The TREBLAB XR500 is a Bluetooth earphone made to withstand the demands of your regular exercise.
It’s safe to say that there are currently an excessive number of these earbud-style headphones available on the market, making it difficult to decide which one to buy.
By the end of this review, hopefully, you’ll know more about the TREBLAB XR500’s capabilities and whether or not they’re the right fit for you.
Despite being wireless, the TREBLAB XR500’s earbuds are connected by cables. You won’t have to spend time untangling knots to get your headphones on your ears and ready to go because the flat cable is strong and tangle-resistant.
The TREBLAB XR500’s two earbuds are covered in a rubberized material that provides protection while also giving them a high-end feel. The IPX7 waterproof rating on the headphones guards against submersion for up to 1 meter (3.2 feet). The XR500 is excellent for use in the hot tub, pool, or even the shower thanks to its waterproof rating. Additionally, more than adequate defense for a sweaty workout.
The XR500 are passive noise-canceling earbuds, a feature Treblab proudly touts on the packaging. Utilizing cVc Noise Cancellation Technology, the TREBLAB XR500 reduces noise rather than completely canceling it. It’s crucial to distinguish between noise-isolating and active noise-canceling, or you risk being dissatisfied when the hum of an airplane’s engines can still be heard after takeoff.
Up to 8 hours of listening time are provided by the built-in battery of the headphones. adequate for working out and most types of travel. The XR500 will fully recharge in about 2 hours from flat.
With the XR500, you can take calls and converse with Siri or Google Assistant while doing so.
Fit and Comfort
The TREBLAB XR500 is excellent in terms of fit. The tips provide added comfort and noise isolation as they fit snugly inside the ears. No matter what activity you choose to engage in, the XR500 is kept firmly in place by the large over-ear clips on the headphones.
The small cable that connects the two earpieces rests behind the neck, and Treblab gives you a clip to tuck any extra away.
Three expandable foam and three silicone ear tips in small, medium, and large are included in the accessories. Although the foam ear tips aren’t made of true memory foam, they still work just as well.
You’ll find three buttons to manage your paired Bluetooth device on the left earpiece. The Treblab logo serves as both a multi-function button and an accessible button. Power, Bluetooth pairing, play/pause, and call management are all controlled by this button. You have two smaller volume up/next track and volume down/previous track buttons above the multi-function button. Even when jogging or exercising, the buttons are simple to reach and operate.
What Does The TREBLAB XR500 Sound Like?
The TREBLAB XR500 headphones sound surprisingly good for earbuds that cost less than $30. Definitely comparable to other low-cost models like the popular Mpow and Senso.
The TREBLAB XR500 doesn’t have a lot of bass, like most earbuds, but the sound is clear and you can listen to music without any problems. You shouldn’t be concerned about whether the TREBLAB XR500 will be loud enough. These headphones are extremely loud—too loud to be heard at maximum volume.
Zero latency is one advantage the TREBLAB XR500 has over the Mpow and Senso. Have you ever watched a movie or a YouTube video on a pair of cheap Bluetooth headphones and experienced a grating lip-sync delay? That is a latency problem, which many wireless headphones have. But Treblab has succeeded in getting this right, which is remarkable given the low price of the headphones.
The TREBLAB XR500’s call quality is adequate but not outstanding. You will have no trouble hearing the incoming caller, but your voice will sound a little muddled. Poor call quality is not a deterrent to purchasing the TREBLAB XR500 headphones in my opinion because they are more geared toward training and fitness.

The TREBLAB XR500 is a good option to consider if you’re looking for a good deal on a pair of workout headphones. Senso and Mpow are two of the major rivals at this price point, and they all share a lot of the same features:
- Similar style and button placement
- Battery life of 8 to 10 hours (all recharge from flat in under 2 hours)
- identical ear tips and gear
- Every sound is very similar.
- Integrated microphone with calling capabilities
- waterproof rating of IPX7
The TREBLAB XR500 triumphs, though, because of its zero latency. The availability of more colors is the other benefit. There are several colors available for the TREBLAB XR500.
