So let me tell you right: now: you get a gaming mode, a glossy finished case, a nice metal mesh upgrade and, most importantly, it uses dynamic driver plus balance, armature combo. This changes, the sound signature, a lot, and i say it sounds different anyway. I still rated this as one of my top five earbuds for all the reasons i’m going to explain right now, Music, good morning, everyone kenneth here and today we’re going to talk about the qcy t11 discussing sound quality, build mic latency and more. I review a lot of earbuds in this channel, so if you’re looking for a true wireless earbuds, especially on a budget, consider subscribing and ring the bell, so you won’t miss any great releases that i cover disclaimers are down description below as well as affiliate links. If you want to help me support the channel, that being said, let’s get started with the first and most important aspect: the sound quality. Now, what i mean by different is how shrill and hollow the tuning is out of the box. I kinda hated it. So i guess it is time for me to finally whip up the qcy app and make use of the equalizer. It was pretty challenging to set up with the flat eq sounding like a total turn off, but i eventually ended up in this tuning, where i boosted the low end some mids and rolled off most of the upper frequencies. The resulting sound is actually not that bad.
In enter sandman by metallica, my eq makes it sound similar to the t10, but it has more reach on both bass and treble. So you see even with the highest turned down like this. It still has so much presence left overall it’s, still not halo, gt3 good. Even though i think the bass is a little bit punchier on the t11 and compared to the feel to one light, the treble is similar, but not as detailed. That said, i value the ability to tune the sound like this, which makes it one of the reason why i put it above the halos in my top 5 video in evening com summer, fireworks by yoshika, i had to boost the treble and some upper mids, mainly On 8k, to bring back the clarity of the female vocal and actually now it sounds pretty close to the gt3, but it still doesn’t come out as clean and concise as the halo. Here, though, this is already much better than the qcy t 10, which sounds congested in the middle, because it’s limited by the balanced amateurs, combo and also, i just want to say actually the default. Eq isn’t that bad here, but i still prefer boosting the mids in taming, the treble and a little bit on the t11. So hopefully you got the picture now that, with some tweaking the t11 is a very decent earbud. That sounds great for most genres. That includes pop edm, acoustics and everything in between compared to the t10.
It offers more sound stage reaches more of the highs and lows, and that makes it totally worth spending an extra one or two bucks for now. Let’S talk, build quality and features. These are the exact same design as the q2id10, but with a glossy finish and a different color selection. I can’t say this as an advantage, because i’ve already gotten quite a lot of small scratches just like the t10 here, but this does feel more premium. As for the features, you have three battery indicators in front that light up red blue green there’s usbc at the bottom for charging a button at the back to reset the earbuds. If you have any pairing issues and the lid is nothing remarkable, this has no resistance. It’S made of plastic it’s whatever, but i still love this case, because it’s very compact and pocket friendly it’s got the same 600 milliamp hour battery, like the halo gt3 case here, but fixes my problem with the design by placing the earbuds. Naturally, you take the earbuds in and out without much hassle, unlike the gt3 that requires twisting and stuff. As for the earbuds, the only thing that sets the t11 apart from the t10 is the shiny, new metal mesh. This is a rare sight in earbuds below 30 bucks, but other than that. The fit is still great thanks to the oval ear tips and the shape that conforms well to my ear, it’s ipx5. So exercising is not a problem and the addition of this short stem makes it easier to handle the earbuds while also bringing the mic closer to your mouth.
You’Ll. Listen to the mic test later, but before that let’s finish with my experience using the earbuds first. As far as controls go, i recommend you customize them like this. They are saved onto the earbud, so you only need to set it once, but it’s not perfect. I need to sacrifice player pause on the left side and let go of voice assistant but i’d rather take this than halo control scheme that doesn’t have volume controls touch, sensitivity is fine, just expect some mistouches every now and then better than overly sensitive and connection has Been mostly solid battery life is right on par with the claim around four hours of play, time at 50 volume, probably three and a half hours. If you’re listening at like 70 and with the case, it could last you up to a week with that said, let’s check out the latency and the microphone quality right. Now you, if you’ve seen my casey sa 08 review you’ll, know the downside of using multiple balanced armatures is it has limited sound stage? You can differentiate it easily when this song gets more complicated, despite sounding more detailed in the alien secret to the halo gt5. It still can’t match all right. Everyone welcome to the indoor call test right now, you’re listening to the qcy t11, and there is no other sound playing, not fan, not ac, nothing. This is basically the best case scenario that you can get and right now, let’s turn the crowd noise on, and this is a simulated crowd noise playing off my macbook pro 16 at 100 volume.
So i just want to say that this is decently loud. Just like what you will hear in real life cafe or supermarket as a comparison, this is how it sounds with the airpods pro under the same condition, and what do you think of the sound quality? Let me know down in the comments below and let’s get back to the video right now. So what do you think of the qcy t11? I think it is the best earbuds that qcy has put out today, though it needs some tweaking to get the right, sound and controls the gaming mode here, isn’t class leading but it’s better than nothing like the qcy, t10 and halo gt3. All in all, this is a solid package that i can recommend if you value the ability to customize the earbuds to suit your preference. So let me know if you have any further questions down in the comments or my twitter and instagram i’ll try to reply you when i’m free and don’t forget to use the links when buying anything in the description.
