Soundpeats is new company that seems to market only on Amazon.com.  The name “Soundpeats” was registered in July of 2014.  They do not have a webpage.  The Soundpeats QY7 Bluetooth Earbuds were designed specifically to be used during exercise.  They are water/sweat proof, and they come in either an all-black or black-green color scheme.  The QY7 comes with three different sizes of earbud tips and 2 different sets ear lobe stabilizers.  If you read the directions carefully and experiment with different earbud tips and lobe stabilizers, you will likely find a combination that is both comfortable and stays in place.

Controls

The buttons are simple and minimalistic.  On the right side (while wearing the earbuds), there is a rocker switch that increases/decreases the volume when pressed briefly and changes tracks forward/backward when pressed for about a second.  On the left side, there is a function button that controls power on and off, answering and rejecting calls, and pausing and playing music.  That is a lot of things for one button to do.  It accomplishes these things by short and long presses as follows:

The Function Button

  • If the QY7 is off, hold the function button down for a few seconds to turn it on.  Continue to hold it down to activate pairing mode.
  • If receiving a call, press the button to answer, hold down the button to end the call.
  • When playing music, press once to play or pause the sound track.

Features

Soundpeats claims the QY7 has “SignalPlus” technology which prevents skipping when the earbuds are blocked from the audio source by barriers such as your body.  In practice, it seems to work as there are few complaints of skipping or losing signal.  Soundpeats also claims the QY7 has “PureSound” technology which reduces “white noise and listener fatigue.”  I have no idea if that means anything, but users almost unanimously agree that the music sounds great; they are shocked at how good these sound at this very low price point.  The QY7 has noise canceling technology for the microphone, but the effects are not noticeable.  Callers cannot tell the difference between the QY7 and a wired set of earbuds with an inline microphone with no noise cancellation feature.  The QY7 does have Bluetooth 4.0 technology.

Performance

The battery lasts for 8 hours of music playback or 6 hours of talk time and will standby for 150 hours.  The wireless range is normal at around 30 feet with a clear line to the audio source, and it drops off as barriers are introduced.

Users are almost unanimously impressed with the music playback quality.  The QY7 compare favorably with more expensive earbuds and are spectacular at this price point.  Users say the bass is exceptionally powerful perhaps compromising the mid-range and the highs a little.

Users overwhelming buy the QY7 for listening to music, but it can also handle calls.  If you do not expect the advertised noise-canceling microphone to cancel any noise, you will not be disappointed with the call quality on either end.  Like all earbuds that seal tightly in the ear canal, the QY7 blocks out external environmental noise.  This is great for blocking out annoying background noise, but also prevents you from hearing important things in your external environment or having conversations with those around you.

Specifications

Soundpeats does not have a webpage and all that is known about the QY7 comes from their Amazon page.  Specifications and warrantee information are unknown.

Customer Comments

Amazon users love the QY7 giving it 4.0 out of 5 stars with nearly 1100 reviews.  Hundreds of reviewers praise the music sound quality and the overall build quality of the QY7.  There are a few complaints about the charging cover being difficult to remove.  A few complain that the silicon ear covers tear easily, and several others could not get them to stay in their ears properly while running.  Finally, some find the small buttons difficult to use while wearing the earbuds.  Although they noted these flaws, most reviewers rated the QY7 very highly and were overall quite pleased with them.

Pros

  • Exceptional music playback quality and powerful bass for the price
  • Lightweight and comfortable
  • All around exceptional quality

 

Cons

  • Small buttons can be difficult to use
  • Not recommended for vigorous exercise; the ear lobe stabilizer system is not very robust
  • Soundpeats is a new, unknown brand

Summary

The Soundpeats QY7 are recommended for an active person on a budget looking for a great set of Bluetooth earbuds for less than $40.  You are mostly interested in listening to music and appreciate powerful bass.  You don’t plan on using them for vigorous exercise (otherwise see the Mpow Swift for the same price), and you’re willing to give a new, unknown brand a chance.  If this is you, then definitely pick a pair up.  Reviewers overwhelmingly love these, and you probably will too.
