Packaging and equipment

The headphones are supplied in a sturdy multi-layer cardboard box.

On the back of the package are printed specifications and a touch control algorithm.

The instructions are placed in a white cardboard pocket under the box lid.

On the plastic bed are: a charging case with headphones and a box with accessories.

The set of accessories consists of a USB / type-c cable and four pairs of silicone tips.

Case

When placing an order for Aliexpress, you can choose one of two lots: headphones, or headphones + case.

The branded case (which is ordered for an additional fee) has a square shape with smoothed corners.

A metal carabiner is supplied with the case …

… which attaches to a small loop near the zipper.

The outer part of the cover is covered with a material similar to “leatherette”.

The inside of the cover is lined with a soft cloth.

The inner dimensions of the cover are 68×68 mm.

Inside the case, large headphones (in the photo BQEYZ Spring 2) or a small player (for example Hidizs AP80) fit freely.

Charging case

The Ugreen HiTune T1 charging case has a rather original, flattened, oval shape.

The lid is rough to the touch and slightly concave.

Certification marks and part of the specifications are printed on the bottom of the case.

There is a recess on the front of the case for more convenient opening of the lid.

Type-c connector is recessed into the body.

The niche of the connector was created as if specifically so that the adapter of the magnetic cable could be hidden there (unless the adapter is of course not round).

The metal case of the cable does not touch the case of the charging case (there is a minimum gap).

The recessed connector allows you to hide the magnetic adapter in the charging case. This is beneficial to the design, but imposes some limitation on ergonomics (for example, you will have to work with your nails to remove it).

It goes without saying that the Ugreen HiTune T1 is equipped with all the required magnets (both for fixing the cover and for the headphones).

The hinge of the lid is exactly as it should be. That is, the lid is securely held in the open position (it does not close even if you shake the case strongly) not due to friction, but with the help of something like a metal spring.

There is a battery level indicator above the reset button.

• The case is plugged in and 100 percent charged: The diode is white.

• The charge level of the case is more than 30 percent: The diode slowly flashes white.

• The charge level of the case is less than 30 percent: The diode slowly flashes red.

• The charge level of the case is below 5 percent: The diode blinks quickly in white.

Headphones

Ugreen HiTune T1 cases are made in the form of beans with sticks.

The 5.3 mm sound guide is protected by a metal mesh.

The sound guides are quite short, which is common for TWS headphones.

An expansion hole is located at the base of the sound guide.

There is a noise canceling microphone hole at the top of the foot. Slightly below (where the logo is) is the touch area for controlling the headphones. The hole at the bottom of the foot is an LED indicator.

At the bottom end of the foot, you can find the main microphone hole.

Channel lettering is located between the contacts.

Let’s measure the dimensions

Ergonomics

The headphones sit very comfortably in the ears, but for my ideal I would like the sound guides to be a little longer.

Sound insulation directly depends on the nozzles used. With stock nozzles, it is not very good, but with larger third-party nozzles, it becomes much better.

In addition to the standard attachments: with the Ugreen HiTune T1 I also used attachments from Kinera YH623, from some other headphones (I don’t remember which ones) and from Xiaomi Piston 2.

These (pictured below) are the largest attachments from the Kinera YH623.

These are large tips from unknown headphones (left) and the largest of the Ugreen HiTune T1 configuration (right).

With Xiaomi tips, the headphones fit into the case as if end-to-end — just a little more, and the case lid would not have closed completely. The rest of the nozzles (which were discussed above) are ideal in size.

The photo below shows the Ugreen HiTune T1 with above-average tips from Xiaomi Piston 2 headphones, as well as the largest tips from the set of the subject.

Autonomy

You can read the official figures regarding the capacity and autonomy above — in the parameters. But below you can see my measurements.

A fully discharged case (with discharged headphones installed inside) charged up to one hundred percent in two hours. Its consumption was 701 mAh (03639 mWh).

Headphones (at medium volume) are able to work for five and a half hours.

The total autonomy (headphones + case) was twenty-four hours and ten minutes. The volume was average, bass enhancement was disabled.

Connection and communication

The search mode for bluetooth devices and connection to already known devices is carried out automatically (when you open the cover of the charging case).

In the phone settings, the headphones are displayed under the name UGREEN HiTune T1.

The connection is excellent. I have never met any failures (stutters or breaks).

The signal delay is minimal. Ugreen HiTune T1 are suitable for use not only for listening to music, but also for playing games and watching videos.

The quality of the microphone raises no objections.

Additional microphones are used for noise cancellation of telephone conversations. These headphones do not have active noise cancellation (ANC).

Control

• Previous song: Triple tap on the left headphone.

• Next song: Triple tap on the right earpiece.

• Play / Pause: Tap on any of the headphones.

• Increase the volume: Double tap on the right earpiece.

• Decrease the volume: Double tap on the left earphone.

• Switch sound mode: Long touch (2 sec) right earbud.

• Activating the voice assistant: Long touch (2 sec) the left earphone.

• Accept / end call: Tap on any of the headphones during a call / conversation.

• Reject call: Long tap (2 sec) on any of the headphones during an incoming call.

• Manually turning off the earphone: Long (6 sec) touching the earphone.

• Manual activation: Long (2 sec) touch of the earphone.

• Headphone demand: Long press (10 sec) button on the charging case while charging the headphones.

The left and right earbuds can be used separately in mono mode. To activate mono mode, take one earphone out of the case, the earphone indicator will blink blue and white, find “UGREEN HiTune Tl” in the list of bluetooth devices, and click to connect.

Tracks switch without annoying soundtrack. When pause is activated, nothing beeps either.

If the assistant speaks Chinese, reset the headphones, this should change the assistant’s language from Chinese to English.

Sound

Headphones were connected to the following devices

• Player FiiO M11 Pro

• Player Hidizs AP80 Cu

• Various phones

• Various laptops

Ugreen HiTune T1 has a light V-shaped sound. But do not think that these are headphones with a weakened bass and a bias in high frequencies. LF and HF are well balanced here (lack or overabundance of certain frequencies has not been noticed).

In Ugreen HiTune T1, the main emphasis is placed on the lower bass, the upper bass, on the contrary, is underestimated (as well as the lower mids). Because of this, the tonality of the earphone shifts upward, giving that very light color.

The bass of the Ugreen HiTune T1 is deep, it sounds pleasant and does not cause discomfort at high volumes.

There is no haze or smear on the midrange, but the lower midrange is lacking in weight, which is why the Ugreen HiTune T1 is not as well suited for watching movies as the HiTune TWS, for example.

The high frequencies are quite detailed, not intrusive — in principle, without comments (considering the price of the headphones)

One of the main advantages of Ugreen HiTune T1 is that they are equipped with a built-in equalizer from two presets, with different sound settings. The first preset produces the sound I described above. When you activate the second preset, the bass is amplified and the sound changes dramatically (it seems as if you have completely different headphones). Changes in the sound are most noticeable at the bottom: the bass becomes so much that it sometimes begins to shake the brain. The mids are slightly damped, and the highs are smoothed out a little.

Changing presets greatly changes the sound while listening to music, but in movies or games the changes are not so obvious (sometimes they are almost not noticeable). The fact is that when the “bass boost” mode is activated, the lower bass is amplified, and the rest of the frequencies are almost not affected. And if in music the lower low frequencies are present all the time, then in video or games they are much less common.

Advantages and disadvantages

Advantages

+ Deep and non-tiring bass.

+ Good detail.

+ Equalizer.

+ Quite good autonomy.

+ It is possible to manually turn on / off the headphones.

+ There is a volume control.

disadvantages

– No AptX.

– Too lightweight NSC.

– I think it would be better if a long touch on the earphone could adjust the volume, double-touch to switch tracks, and triple to turn on EQ and the assistant.

Outcome

The Ugreen HiTune T1 equalizer became the trigger that actually made me pay attention to these headphones. I think it’s a great idea to make the headphones give the user the ability to adjust the sound to their taste.

That’s all for me. If you have any questions, ask them in the comments below the article
