Diesel Earbuds

You might mistake these small and light earbuds as something from Apple but instead of them being white they are black; I see they also do them in a post box red. So these are small and light and they come in a small circular container with a flip to the side lid, replace the buds in the box and they immediately start to be recharged.

The container is round at 4.5cm and 3cm deep. Inside the box are the buds which on my kitchen scale register at 5 grams each. The buds in the container weigh only 54 grams. The outer box is 9.5x9.5x3cm and this also contains two extra different sized pairs of Gels and a USB to USB ‘C’ lead. Finally there is a small card that contains a QR code to get more information and a link to an App.

Slide the lid to open the container and remove the buds, assuming the Gels are your size just press them into your ear canal the tiny 2cm extension should be pointing forward towards your jaw. First pairing will require Bluetooth to be turned on – if it is not already – and Diesel should appear in a list to link to, on subsequent insertions the link should be automatic.

On the front of the canister are up to four blue LEDs that tell you the amount of charge left in the unit.

Take care pushing the buds into your ear canal as pressing on the bud end also turns them off and various other things, I found this very sensitive.

You can of course answer phone calls by touches of the buds as well as reducing or increasing the volume level and changing to the next/previous track. However as this is all touch it takes a little time to judge the strength of touch.

The buds should allow you to play for up to 8 hours between needing recharging and the container has power for another three full charges of the buds so 32 hours of use without having to find a USB connection to get more power to recharge container.

The buds are Bluetooth five.

I was happy with the quality of sound both high and low registers, however I did find the touch a little too sensitive for me and as the buds do not have any wings to hold them in your ear canal I often felt they were not completely in place and kept wanting to push them further in which often had the effect of turning the buds off.

As regular readers will know I have small narrow ear canals which can make the wearing of anything that plugs the ear painful after an hour or so of wear, this was not the case here and providing I could resist the urge to touch the buds I could wear them for several hours.

At the time of publication the Diesel True Wireless Earbuds are available from Amazon for £99.95 in either Red or Black.
