Tribit Xfree Color are an interesting alternative, for design and accessories, to the classic Bluetooth earphones to leave in the gym bag. Recently tested, they are light and pleasant to wear, they also offer excellent soundproofing from external noise, making them effective for dedicating themselves to your workouts without distractions.
How they are made
The earphones are aesthetically very similar to others of the same type. They are connected together by a cable with a rubber sheath about 50 centimeters long, while near the right earphone there is the remote control, in satin plastic. With a rounded shape on the sides, it is quite large and houses three buttons, the multifunction one and the two keys dedicated to volume adjustment and management of audio tracks (but not only) in red. On the back there is instead the hole for the microphone while the microUSB socket is recessed along one edge, well protected by a rubber cap that keeps water and sweat away.
The earphones are instead characterized by a brushed aluminum body: on the outermost side we find a metal frame, well finished by a red frame and under which a magnet is positioned that allows you to join them to keep them locked around the neck like a mo ' of necklace when they come off the ears.
Compared to other headphones of this type, the magnet has the only function of locking the earphones: there is in fact no function associated with music playback. Furthermore, the magnetic force is sufficient to keep them firmly in place when placed around the neck but you must not exaggerate: a few hops are enough to make them release following contact with your chest.
The fins are built in such a way as not to affect the functioning of the earphones and above all with their aesthetics in case you decide to remove them. They are not essential or necessary for listening to music even if their presence ensures a better stability of the headphones in the ears, especially during a run or in general with sudden head movements.

How are they doing
The audio quality of the Tribit Xfree Color earphones, as expected, is very good and focused on the reproduction of low frequencies. The sound in general is a bit more closed than other headphones designed for audiophile listening, but even the most common Apple EarPods offer a clearer and more crystalline sound. In short, they are not headphones for listening to opera or classical music which, according to some of our tests, loses a lot in terms of overall sound performance.
Without discussing the tastes and musical habits of those who train in the gym, from this point of view they are instead very good with all those songs where bass and drums play an important role in the context. In short, they are the classic headphones that, with the right songs, “pump”.
The Tribit Xfree Color earphones didn't seem so different from many other headphones that we find on the market and that are around the same price range. From this point of view, it is worth buying these earphones if you don't even have one – or if the old ones are broken – and you want to focus on something better from a constructive point of view.
You can buy the Tribit Xfree Color on Amazon at a price of 29.79 euros.
