Now you must be thinking that in this Wings Phantom gaming earbuds review, why did I start asking about snakes?
Because at the first glance, the look of the case of the Wings Phantom gaming earbuds is going to be similar to that of the King Cobra.

In the Wings Phantom gaming true wireless earbuds, you will also get to see the dedicated gaming mode, to access which you have to tap and hold the right side earbuds for 2 seconds.
After this your earbuds will go into gaming mode.
The specialty of this mode is that you get to see very low latency in it.
It has been claimed by Wings that these earbuds have a latency of 65ms and this proved to be true during my testing.
I was using it for testing purpose, so I found slight latency whereas a normal user would not be aware of its latency at all which is a good thing.
Plus, when you turn on the gaming mode, the LED lights on the earbuds are lit with a breathing effect that looks really beautiful and provides a gaming vibe.
Wings Phantom Review: Sound Quality
After accessing the gaming mode of the Wings Phantom gaming true wireless earbuds, you will also see an improvement in its sound quality.
Earlier, where you were getting to hear normal sound quality, in this mode the sound becomes a bit clear as we need for gaming.
12mm drivers have been used in these earbuds, although most people do not understand these numbers but let me tell you that 12mm are very good numbers according to any TWS earbuds.
In a nutshell, the bigger the drivers the better the sound quality will be.
I played different games with these earbuds where there was no complaint of any kind in the sound quality.
Although I did feel a slight lack of treble in some places, but it was not enough to consider it much.
Now that I’ve used these kinds of earbuds a lot, I’ve gotten used to testing them out.
Thats why I recognize these tiny little flaws.
An normal user will not have any problem with its sound quality at all.
On one hand, those people who want to take Wings Phantom gaming true wireless earbuds for gaming as well as listening to music and who are hard music lovers.
They might not enjoy it that much but if you are a casual listener you will have no problem.

Although I have never felt that much benefit of this feature for any gaming earbuds but still it is an add-on feature.
