Fuse True Wireless Earbuds Review

To be honest:

This is the third 100% Wireless Earbuds I’m reviewing in a span of few weeks.

​Check the other two: here and here.

As you may have noticed, after the launch of Apple Airpods:

There has been a tremendous insurgence of Completely Wireless Earbuds looking to replace the Apple Airpods.

Some of these earbuds are complete thrash, while some offer performance better than the Airpods at half the price.

Today with my Fuse True Wireless Earbuds Review, let’s check whether they are made of mettle or should you just give them a pass.

However do make sure that on theroundingsound.com I only review the best products that you can buy considering its price, performance, quality and value for money.

Fuse True Wireless Earbuds Review

What's Inside The Box

The box is pretty standard and which is a good thing, because it helps to keep the price low.

Just cut through the package seal and you’re into the contents of the box.

As for my surprise, there aren’t many accessories into the package, however what’s important is still there.

You get the two complete wireless Fuse earbuds, along with a small charging cable and three different ear size silicone eartips.

It would have appreciative, if a carrying pouch was present in there too, however for few extra bucks you can get this quality carrying pouch too.

First Impressions

​Holding the Fuse True Wireless Earbuds for the first time, I must say that they are pretty lightweight; however there's no mention of the exact weight on the box nor do I have a Gram Weighing Scale.

The design too on the other hand isn’t fancy at all. It’s just practical and easy to get along with.

The Fuse True Wireless Earbuds have angled design that will easily slide into your ear cavity and with the right tip will stay there easily even during physical activities like jogging, walking and strength exercises.

“Personally I don’t recommend wearing earbuds during activities where you’ll sweat a lot, as this creates plenty of moisture in your ears, which then becomes a breeding ground and growth of bacteria in Millions.” [Source]

There are two small holes on both the earbuds that act as charging point, the provided charging cable has Nokia Pin Charger-like pins that help in charging.

Available in two colors: Black and White, which will go easily the along with iPhone in any color you have.


Before we talk about its built and sound quality, let me make few points about the battery and battery life.

Fuse True Wireless Earbuds take around 2 hours to get completely charged, 1 hour for each earbud.

However since I had a Nokia Pin Wall charger, I found that it takes a little time to charge via it.

Moreover once full charged, the earbuds offers a battery life of 5-6 hours.

It also has a Bluetooth 4.2 compatibility, which means that if you have a Bluetooth 4.2 support smartphone, you can enjoy a complete skip-free music and audio listening with very minimal audio compression.

The sound quality though, I didn’t feel is quite at par considering the price, however nothing that will be a deal breaker though.

The mids are crisp and clear with a bit punchy bass, however the highs is where it suffers and sounds kind of shrill at times.

In a quiet environment, you can feel the prowess of the earbuds, however it’s only when you get outside or into a noisy environment, the ambient noise starts to leak.

However with the inclusion of CVC 6.0 Noise Cancelling Technology, plenty of ambient noise is cut via this feature.

The built quality on the other hand is quite durable and it won’t break down with every day’s wear and tear at least…

…but make sure you take extra care and don’t drop them as it might damage the internal circuitry.

How To Get Started?

Since the Fuse True Wireless Earbuds are 100% Wire-free earpieces, hence before pairing them with your Smartphone, the earbuds needs to be paired with themselves first.

Here’s a step-by-step process on how to get started:

1.Press the power button on first earbud for 3 seconds till it starts flashing red and blue light.

2.For 5 seconds, press the power button on 2nd earbud until it starts flashing red and blue light too.

3.Wait for few seconds and the earbuds will pair among them automatically, make sure to keep the earbuds very close to each other to avoid interference while pairing.

4.Once connect with each other, both the earbuds will start blinking blue light, which means they are ready to be paired with a smartphone

5.Start bluetooth on your smartphone, search for device name 'Fuse' into your phone and select it.

6.Within seconds, the Fuse Wirless Earbuds will pair with your smartphone as well and ready to be used.


Fuse True Wireless Earbuds are a good pair of 100% Wire-free Bluetooth Earbuds that I believe are at a pricier side considering the price-to-performance ratio.

However this doesn’t mean that they aren’t a potential contender when it comes to challenging other earbuds in the market.

If you need an extra lightweight Wireless Bluetooth earbuds that doesn’t fall off easily from your ears and stay putt, then this True Wireless Earbuds from Fuse is what you need.
