Xmenha True Wireless Earbuds Bluetooth 5.2 Ear Buds Review
Published on June 26, 2023, 4:06 p.m.
The Xmenha True Wireless Earbuds are an affordable pair of Bluetooth earbuds priced at around $30. They offer decent connectivity and battery life along with deep bass-driven sound. However, lackluster build and sound quality make them best suited for casual listening rather than critical audio use cases.

Design and Comfort
The Xmenha earbuds have an in-ear design with oval silicone tips that fit securely without discomfort for most ears. At just 3.5oz total weight, you barely notice them when worn. The all-plastic construction looks sleek but feels cheap and plasticky.
The charging case is exceptionally compact but suffers the same budget build quality. The lid snaps shut firmly but is tricky to open with your fingertips. It lacks a premium solid feel and provides only basic drop and splash protection.
With 13mm drivers optimized for bass, the Xmenha earbuds emphasize low frequencies like EDM and hip hop at the expense of balanced mids and highs. The bloated bass overwhelms the mix, making vocals and lead instruments sound muddy and undefined. Treble is rolled off, sapping energy from cymbals and guitars.
While some may enjoy the bass-heavy sound for casual use, the lack of clarity, detail, and precision make these ill-suited for discerning listening. The uneven sound will disappoint audiophiles seeking an accurate reference listening experience.
With no active noise cancelling (ANC), the Xmenha earbuds rely solely on passive noise isolation from the in-ear fit. They muffle ambient noise moderately but nearby conversations and higher-pitched sounds still intrude. People looking for true silence or commute-friendly ANC should look elsewhere.
You get around 6-8 hours per charge from the earbuds themselves. The charging case provides an additional 3 charges for 30 hours total listening time. The case recharges fully in 2-3 hours via USB-C. Quick charging for 15 minutes adds about 2 hours of listening.
This battery life matches competitors and gives you over a full day’s use on the go. Frequent travelers may need to top up the case mid-trip.
The touch-sensitive panels on each earbud handle playback, volume, calls, and voice assistant access. But the lack of physical buttons makes them tricky to control precisely without looking. And false touches are common when adjusting fit.
More frustratingly, touches sometimes flat out fail to register at all, requiring repeated attempts to pause music or answer calls. Reliability is not their strong suit. Dedicated buttons would offer superior tactile control.
Bluetooth 5.2 gives a stable connection up to the standard 50 foot range if direct line of sight. Pairing kicks in instantly when removing the earbuds from the charging case. But there is no wired listening option as backup if Bluetooth is unavailable.
The IPX5 water resistance protects against splashes and sweat but falls short of full waterproofing. While usable for walking and commuting, I would not trust them to survive a good soaking. The all-plastic build also provides minimal shock absorption; drops onto hard surfaces will likely cause damage. Overall, they lack the ruggedness for intense sports.
At just $30, the Xmenha True Wireless Earbuds offer decent functionality for the price. You get conveniences like automatic pairing, on-ear controls, bass-heavy sound, and long battery life. But the plasticky build, mediocre sound, and glitchy controls reflect the budget price.
For critical listening and demanding use cases, spend up for more premium earbuds. If you just want cheap wireless audio for casual everyday use, these Xmenha earbuds get the job done. But don’t expect bells, whistles, or polish.
Do these have noise cancellation?
No, they do not have active noise cancellation. Noise isolation from the in-ear seal is mediocre.
How do you charge the case?
The charging case has a USB-C port to charge from any USB charger. A USB-C cable is included.
Can you swim with these earbuds?
No. The IPX5 rating makes them sweat and splash resistant, but they are not suitable for swimming or submersion.
Do they work with Android and iOS?
Yes, they will pair with any modern smartphone, tablet, or device with Bluetooth connectivity.
Why is the audio cutting out?
Make sure you are within range of your phone or device. Stay closer than 50 feet and keep direct line of sight for optimal connection. Also check that Bluetooth is enabled on your device.
