A few days back pTron launched two new TWS earbuds in India: pTron Bassbuds Pro and pTron Bassbuds Vista. Speaking of pTron we have already seen that the company is focusing on delivering the best audio devices within a budget price range. Both these TWS earbuds are one of the best in the market right now. So we got our hands right after the launch on both of them and it took us some time to examine it in various indoor and outdoor situations to deliver a detailed review on these items.
In this article, we will be talking about the pTron Bassbuds Pro TWS earbuds. These earbuds are one of the lightest earbuds available in the market. Each earbud in this case weighs approximately 4grams which feels lighter than ever and fits easily in the ears. These earbuds are being sold on Amazon at only ₹ 1,299. I have got the black one for this article.

Design and Built
We are looking at small and compact earbuds that weigh not more than 4 grams each and designed in a plastic body with a touch panel at the outer side of the earbuds. These earbuds have the branding right above the touch panel on both earbuds. There is an indicator that glows red and blue to indicate charging, control, and connectivity status.
Now moving towards the case, we are looking into a usually smaller in size earbud case which is the most important thing right now. This case has a plastic built and has branding at the top of it. The most interesting part of it is that it has a tiny little display that indicates the charge of the case and from here also we can see that the earbuds are being charged. Apart from this, the case has a Type-C USB port.
If you see or take both the case and TWS earbuds in hand you can feel how compact it is and apart from these the TWS surely feels nearly premium, but not totally. The built quality is very sturdy and does not break when falls from waist height, in case, the lid opens and the earbuds come out.
How to Pair?
Steps to pair the pTron Bassbuds Pro with any iOS and Android devices.
- Open the lid of the case and take out the earbuds.
- Then turn on the Bluetooth of your smartphone/ iPad/ laptop.

Comfort and Usage
As mentioned earlier each earbud weighs approximately 4 grams which is very lightweight and after fitting in ears it will feel like nothing is in the ears. It has an absolute physical noise cancellation design that will not allow any surrounding sound while plugged in the ears to enter ears. It fits comfortably in the ears and feels great, moreover, it does not falls from the ears once fitted properly.
All conditions proof IPX4 sweat and water-resistant earbuds can be word while workout, while the silicon tip are adjustable with two other spare eartips of different sizes. Along with this the touch controls make it more user friendly and accessible with any one hand.
The pTron Bassbuds Pro provides a 4Hrs Playback with Earbuds, +8Hrs with charging case which gives a pretty decent 12 Hrs Combined Playtime for such compact TWS earbuds. It takes around 1.5 hours to fully charge the case with a Type-C charger. On top of that, the battery percentage shown in the case is pretty useful which gives a proper idea of the remaining usage time.
I would like to focus on the microphone of this earbud which is quite impressive but one thing I noticed after outdoor usage that it faces a problem to receive the voice properly in a crowded place with a mask on. In such a situation, you need to talk loudly so that the microphone can receive your sound properly.

The audio quality of the pTron Bassbuds Pro is amazing, especially the highs (audio) are up to the mark. When the volume is 100% the sound has a soothing effect but might not be needed every time. The 8mm Dynamic Speakers with High Bass exquisite sound details with proper Bass. The bass is very prominent and overall the quality is up to the mark for this price range. There seems to have no issue while playing games with these headphones.
The headphone can be accessible within a range of 10m and the connection breaks down a little bit if you travel in the whole house, keeping the phone in a room.
Pros and Cons

|Comfortable fitting||No dual pairing|
|Great battery life|
After using it for a week I am totally impressed with both the audio quality and its lightweight built. The whole case of the TWS is very small and can be easily carried anywhere, needless to mention the weight as each earbuds are weighed 4grams approximately. There is no fear of falling from the ears but would recommend you all to handle it properly as it has a high tendency of falling while handling as it is so lightweight.
Considering the price of Rs.1,299 you can definitely go for this pTron Bassbuds Pro TWS earbuds. I am strongly recommending this gadget as it is one of the best within this price range and might also be the only one.
