The SoundPEATS Q9A bluetooth earbuds delivers exactly what it promises on the box – a set of comfortable fitting, good quality (both materials and audio) earbuds that fit securely and doesn’t fall out when exercising. It had a good range to my phone, the sound quality didn’t break up and I paired it with an Android phone and iPad and experienced no problems.
Included in the box: Bluetooth headphone, carrying case, USB charging cable, flat wire clamp, flat line buckle, 3x ear tips (small, medium, large) and mesh carrying bag.

The Ergohacks Evaluation
The SoundPEATS Q9A is made for adults and comes with three sizes of ear tips. There are three buttons on the right earbud, accessible with your right hand. Being left handed, I did not use these once fitted and adjusted the volume on my device instead.
The earbuds are sturdy and easy to fit and can be used in most scenarios, including whilst exercising, both indoors and outdoors. External sound is still audible, which makes them safer to use outdoors, but unsuitable for noisy interior environments.
The earbuds are well made, easy to use and fits well. I don’t often use this style of headphones because I do not listen to music on a headset when exercising and prefer the standard design for every day use. I would not recommend these for high usage, they do become uncomfortable after an hour or two – but that is sufficient time for a pair of exercise earbuds.

The SoundPEATS Q9A comes with a one year guarantee and I think they might last even longer. Decent quality with a reasonable price tag, a pair of these should eliminate the need for purchasing very low cost ‘throw-away’ earbuds for at least 12 months.
A standard pair of bluetooth earbuds is about £10-20, placing these in the middle of its price range. One of the perks of buying these instead of one of the other dozens of similar choices is its accessories. It comes with a beautiful hardshell case as well as a mesh bag which are included in the price.
Bluetooth Version: 4.1
Effective Range: 33ft / 10m
Audio Profiles: aptX
Play Time: up to 5h
Charging Time: 1-2h
Battery Type: Rechargeable Li-polymer battery
An Android or iOS device to pair it with.
The SoundPEATS Q9A wireless earbuds are a good choice for walking, running and exercising. The sound quality is good and never breaks up, it should fit most adult ears comfortably with the interchangeable ear tips and it travels well in a beautiful zipped hardshell case. Recommended for anyone looking for a step-up from cheap disposable earbuds who wants to use them mainly for exercising. It also comes in a pretty box and would make a good gift.
