pTron Bassbuds Jade are a gaming TWS earbuds in which you get to see a dedicated gaming mode.
In this mode, you will get to see low latency, which proves to be very helpful for the gamers.
I also played FPS games like BGMI and some sniping games with these earbuds where I got really low latency.
When you fire, you get instant response which is a good thing.
But the trouble starts when you do continuous long gaming sessions or competitive gaming.
Although they have been claimed to have low latency, but if you do long gaming sessions, you get to see a little latency there.
There is a slight delay in the response, which affects your gaming somewhere.
I have been gaming with them continuously for 3 to 4 hours, and I felt slight lag.
But if you do occasional gaming like me, you will not have any problem.
Low latency is very beneficial in any gaming TWS earbuds.
And this is a feature that is necessary in every gaming earbuds.
The biggest selling point of these earbuds from pTron is their low latency.
During testing, I found a latency of around 50 to 60 ms in these pTron Bassbuds Jade gaming TWS earbuds which is quite impressive.
I got this latency while testing in gaming mode, whereas if I talk about normal mode, there was a latency of about 120 ms which is not bad.
However, I told you in the “gaming test” section that when you do long gaming sessions, you will see a little high latency, due to which it takes a little time to get the response of the game.
But overall, you get really low latency with the pTron Bassbuds Jade gaming earbuds.
You get to see very easy controls in the pTron Bassbuds Jade gaming earbuds.
Music play / pause is done by single taping on any of the earbuds on either side.
Double taping will play the previous song.
And to play the next song, you have to triple tap on these earbuds.
Google Assistant or Siri can be enabled by tapping and holding on the left earbud for about 2 seconds.
While the gaming mode can be accessed by tapping 4 times on the pTron Bassbuds Jade earbuds on either side.
Let me tell you that music mode will be on by default.
In pTron Bassbuds Jade, you will get to see 13mm drivers, which is the highest in this segment, and even one of the most popular gaming earbuds in this segment, the Wings Phantom wireless gaming earbuds also get 12mm drivers.
Although the bass has been kept very important in these earbuds, thereby you will get to hear much more bass than the rest of the earbuds.
Also, they are quite loud but still you will not get to see any distortion in them.
Due to which the experience of listening to music is going to be great.
On the other hand, if we talk about sound output in gaming, all kinds of sound comes to you in a very clear way.
For example, in BGMI, you can easily hear the footsteps of your enemies.
But one thing that you need to tell is that if you do not like bass, you will feel very uncomfortable with them.
If the sound is not balanced in these, you will have to balance the sound by going to your device’s settings.
So if you are a bass lover like me then you will not have any problem at all.
The mic quality of the pTron Bassbuds Jade gaming earbuds is decent.
If you gaming in a quiet room, you won’t have any problem, your voice will reach your teammates in a very clear way.
But if your room is noisy, you’re going to have trouble getting your voice across to your teammates.
There is a similar situation in calling too, everything will be ok if you talk in a quiet place, but as soon as you start talking by going to a noisy place, your voice will be less able to reach the other end properly.
But looking at the price, the quality of its mic cannot be criticized so much because it has other amazing features which justify its price.
Battery Life & Charging
Now it’s time to talk about the battery life of the pTron Bassbuds Jade gaming earbuds.
Both the earbuds pack 40-40 mAh and the case packs a 400 mAh battery, which takes around 1.5 hours to charge, for which you have been given a Type-C cable with them.
These earbuds do not support fast charging.
Once these earbuds are fully charged, you get around 5 hours of battery life, while if we talk about standby time, they are around 120 hours.
Plus, these earbuds offer a battery life of around 40 hours with the charging case which is great.
Fitting & Comfort
pTron Bassbuds Jade gaming earbuds are quite good in terms of comfort.
Along with these, you are given extra silicone ear tips of different sizes which you can use according to the size of your ears.
These are designed in such a way that they fit very easily in your ears and adjusted quite well.
I have also done workouts in the gym with them and some other physical activities as well but still they are very good adjusting in the ears.
Although they are slightly bigger in size which makes you feel a bit uncomfortable.
Due to which it will be a bit difficult to wear them for a long time.
But if you do not use them continuously for a long time, you will not have any problem with them.
The pTron Bassbuds Jade gaming earbuds are very easy to connect with any device.
Bluetooth 5.0 has been supported in these, which supports wireless connectivity in a range of 10 meters.
I did notice one thing in these.
When you put these earbuds in the case and as soon as you open the case, they automatically connect to your device provided you have already connected them.
And as soon as you close the case, they also get automatically disconnected which I really liked.
However, I did read reviews of some users in which they complained that they automatically disconnect and reconnect in between while using them.
But I did not see any such problem in testing them.
So I guess, this issue might be due to some kind of manufacturing defect in the particular product.
