When I was a student, I bought many UGREEN products, such as charging cables and power banks. As a student, I always pay more attention to cost performance, and finally I think UGREEN is more appropriate. Therefore, I have always had a good impression of UGREEN’s products.
Relying on strong hardware strength, UGREEN’s product series in recent years has become more and more complete, including the very high use rate in our daily life-headphones. There are many headsets launched by UGREEN, and I have also experienced UGreen HiTune H3 before. This time, let us take a look at another true wireless earphones——UGREEN HiTune X6, hoping to give friends some reference for buying headphones.
Of course, interested friends can also take a look at UGREEN HiTune X6 true wireless noise cancellation earbuds teardown.
1. Unboxing & Accessories
▲The outer packaging of UGREEN HiTune X6 uses a mixture of black/grey/white colors. In addition to the brand name and product name, there is also a rendering of the headset on the front. This rendering also has a three-dimensional feel, which is quite interesting. Surrounding the rendering is a circle of sound waves, and the design elements will not appear monotonous.
▲The back of the box has a complete description of the four main characteristics of the product (35dB Noise Cancellation, 50ms Ultra-low Latency, 6-Mic Noise Cancellation, Ear-Catching Sound Quality), and detailed product parameters are attached. Users can get a more intuitive understanding of UGREEN HiTune X6 before using the earphones.
▲UGREEN may realize that some users do not like to read the manual, so after uncovering the UGREEN HiTune X6, you can see a piece of hard cardboard printed with the headset operation method. Of course, this hard cardboard can also act as a partition to keep the charging case and eartips underneath stable.
▲The package content is relatively simple, charging case (including earphones), Type-C charging cable, manual, warranty card and two pairs of eartips.
▲The Type-C charging cable is more convenient for desktop charging. There is also the UGREEN brand logo on the interface end, which is very recognizable.
▲There are 3 pairs of eartips (L, M, S), among which M-size eartips are pre-installed on the earphones. The configuration of 3 pairs of eartips is a common configuration for mid-lower-end headphones, and it is actually practical enough. After all, eartips will not be replaced every day.
▲The manual and warranty card use thick paper, good workmanship, and convenient for long-term storage and viewing. The printed content is a combination of graphics and text, which is highly readable, and the fonts are even colored, which looks more comfortable.
2. Charging case & earphone details
▲The design of the UGREEN HiTune X6 charging case is still very novel. The black case cover and the curved indicator lights are like smiling lips. At a glance, there is a kind of ability to make people feel better.
▲The hinge of the charging case occupies a relatively small area, which is a bit like a “bangs” feeling, and it will not appear to be inconsistent. Below it is the pairing button and Type-C interface, which are distributed in the center.
▲The storage of UGREEN HiTune X6 is semi-hidden, but because the headphone head is relatively large, it is more convenient to access. Except for the storage area which is in obsidian black, the rest is matt black, so the visual impact is still possible.
▲The earbud shell is gray, the size of a broad bean, and has a round appearance.
▲The obsidian black color used on the inside of the earbud has a good texture, but it is easier to stain fingerprints. The left and right ears are marked with “L” and “R” in different colors, which are easy to distinguish during use. The charging contacts are relatively large, so there is no need to worry about poor contact.
▲The eccentric in-ear design of UGREEN HiTune X6 enhances the wearing stability of the headset.
3. 6+20 hours battery life
▲UGREEN HiTune X6 earbuds have a single battery life of 6 hours, the charging case can provide an additional 20 hours of battery life, and the total battery life can reach 26 hours. Calculated based on 3.5 hours of use per day, it can be used for one week. In fact, I believe that many friends use headphones for less than 3.5 hours a day, and the actual available time should be longer.
If the charging case or earphone is out of power and you want to charge it up, it is actually very fast. In my actual measurement, when the charging case and the earphones are out of power, it takes about 2 hours to fully charge them, which is consistent with the official data.
4. Lightweight and portable, stable to wear
▲The wearing stability of true wireless earphones has a certain relationship with the weight of earbuds. UGREEN HiTune X6 single earphone weighs only 6g, there is no cumbersome feeling when wearing, and the material of eartips is also very comfortable.
▲Of course, in addition to the weight of the headset, the design of the headset is also very important. The eccentric design of UGREEN HiTune X6 makes the center of gravity toward the ear canal side when it is worn, so it is naturally not easy to loosen.
In addition to wearing stability, UGREEN HiTune X6 is also very comfortable to wear under the dual effects of low weight and skin-friendly material. According to the actual test, I have worn it continuously for several hours, and there is no discomfort in the ear canal.
5. IPX5 dustproof and waterproof, no restraint for outdoor use
▲UGREEN HiTune X6 supports IPX5 dustproof and waterproof, that is, anti-spray type. Any direction is directly exposed to water spray without harmful effects. Like a general outdoor use scene, rain or sweating will not affect the use of the headset at all.
6. Dual-core digital noise cancellation, front/reverse microphone support
▲UGREEN HiTune X6 uses a dual-core digital noise cancellation chip, and is equipped with a front/feedback microphone (to cancel ambient noise/to cancel ear noise), and the depth of noise cancellation can reach 35dB. The operation of switching the active noise cancellation function is also relatively simple. Press and hold the left/right earphone for 1 second to hear the prompt tone, which means the switch operation is completed. Actually, when the active noise cancellation function is turned on in a lively area, the effect of noise cancellation is still very obvious.
▲The noise cancellation function is also extended to guarantee the quality of the call. UGREEN HiTune X6 uses the single-ear dual-microphone call noise cancellation algorithm, with software and hardware coordination, which can suppress 90% of the reverse environmental noise, and the call is very clear.
7. Bluetooth 5.1 chip, stable connection
▲The connection speed of UGREEN HiTune X6 is very fast, open the box and pair devices automatically. I tried multiple scenarios for several hours and found that the stability of the bluetooth connection can be said to be very reliable. I wore the earphones and went through the two doors to the bathroom, and there was no disconnection.
8. Sound quality
When it comes to sound quality, we have to mention the physical structure and acoustic tuning of the earbuds first.
▲UGREEN HiTune X6 uses a 10mm DLC-type diamond diaphragm dynamic driver, which has been professionally adjusted and compensated for sound quality to obtain a better true wireless experience.
As for the actual sound quality experience, it can be said that different people have different opinions. Let me briefly talk about my own feelings:
▲I mainly tested “鼓诗”, “One I Love” and “琵琶对萨克斯” with different frequencies. It is found that UGREEN HiTune X6 performs well in terms of frequent low-frequency expressions in daily life, with sufficient volume and a certain extension. The vocal details are also in place, and the dental sound and sound of swallowing saliva in the song can be well identified. I think a little fly in the ointment is the high-frequency resolution, which feels a bit frizzy, and insufficient extension, but considering the daily use scene, I think it doesn’t matter much.
On the whole, UGREEN HiTune X6 true wireless noise cancellation earbuds have good performance in terms of appearance design, wearing stability, waterproof performance, noise cancellation function, and bluetooth connection stability. I think the sound quality is sufficient in daily use scenes. As a true wireless headset under 400 RMB, I think the price/performance ratio can be considered.
