Design and battery
Its weight is 4,38 g. This is pretty much low and it is comfortable enough when you wear them. Pads are fitting in the ears good. You do not drop them even if you shake or make fast movements. T5 is comfortable. After hours of wearing them, I forgot I have them. What is surprisingly great is the battery life. 4 hours for this price range is really great. The charging case also may expand its value to 25 hours. And I used one little hack. At work, I can have only one earpad in the ear. When you drop one earpad to the charging case, the other one switches to mono. Thanks for this, while one earpad is charging, another is in my ear.
Connectivity and control
T5 has straight and simple control. Play or pause the music, next song, volume and there is one specialty. When typing three times, you switch to game mode. In this mode, T5 offers low latency. It makes them suitable for games and also for watching TV.
On the other hand, connectivity is at a higher level. Thanks to Bluetooth 5.0 they pair almost instantly and hold for 10 m. The range of course varies according to walls and other obstacles. QCY T5 is compatible with iPhone and Android and also Windows.
Sound and its quality
The sound is good. For this price level. If you do not expect audiophile headphones, but replace them for Apple AirPods, you will be just fine. For speech, making calls, and podcasts you do not hear the difference. If you want to listen to music it is OK (for this price level). The bass is a bit heavier and deeper. Mids may not you satisfy fully, but the overall experience is satisfactory.
