About the Case
Surge Mini comes with a case that functions as a power bank as well. If the earbuds ran out of battery, then I just put it again in case to charge it. The earbuds attach to the case through a magnet which makes it very practical.
The case is a power bank with a capacity of 2000 mAh, I can use it to fill the Surge Mini up to 4 times, from zero to fully charged. There is an indicator light to show the reamaining power in the power bank.
Available in black and white, I got the black one. The case size isn't too big, so it's very easy to carry.
There is a USB port, this means the case can function as a power bank for other devices. It's not big compared to devices like smartphones, but in an emergency, this feature will be very useful.
Connecting a Surge Mini with a laptop or smartphone is super easy. Long press the button on one of the earbuds until you hear the "Pairing" sound, then connect to the Bluetooth device list on your laptop or smartphone.
After one earbud is connected, turn on the other earbud, then the two earbuds will automatically connect.
I was not sure about the sound quality of true wireless earbuds, because all of them were connected wirelessly, I assumed that the sound quality would not be as good as wired earbuds.
But Surge Mini changed my opinion, this small device managed to produce sound with comfortable bass and quite perfect details. I don't lose the details of the music.
Surge Mini can reduce noise well, I can listen to various genres of music very comfortably, the bass, treble, and the mid-range sounds equally. I often listen to rock and instrumental music, and I really enjoy it.
Something I Like
When I take the Surge Mini from the case, it is automatically turned on and instantly paired with a laptop or smartphone that was previously connected. Nice!
For $49 true wireless earbuds, the Surge Mini can be a more reasonable choice compared to other brands that cost twice as much.
