A few days back pTron launched two new TWS earbuds in India: pTron Bassbuds Pro and pTron Bassbuds Vista. Speaking of the company pTron we have already seen that it is focusing on delivering the best audio devices within a budget price range.

Design and Built
The design of the pTron Bassbuds Vista is similar to the OnePlus Buds Z but here you can see the extended earpiece part is a bit triangular in shape, we mean the lower part that remains outside the ear. The TWS earbuds have an in-ear design with an angular silicon ear-tip that fits perfectly in the ears. There is no touch control on these earbuds, whereas, we get button controls on the sides.
The charging case of the pTron Bassbuds Vista has the branding at the front and below the branding, we can see four LED indicators that indicate the various. The case has a very smooth matte finish on it. There is a micro-USB port at the back of the case.
Just like the pTron Bassbuds Pro this one also is lightweight, such as each earbud weighs approximately 4 grams and along with the whole box, it is quite compact and lightweight.

Comfort and Usage
Each earbud of ptron Bassbuds Vista weighs approximately 4 grams which is very lightweight and after fitting in ears it will feel like nothing is in the ears. From the design, it seems to have a physical noise cancellation design that will not allow any surrounding sound while plugged in the ears to enter ears but it doesn’t work so well even at full volume. Otherwise, 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 button controls make it more user friendly and accessible with any one hand.
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.
Wireless Charging: How to use it?
The pTron Bassbuds Vista 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 micro-USB charging port (wired) and a 5W Qi Wireless Charger.
Now we are talking about the 5W Qi Wireless Charger which is a round-shaped charging pad with micro-USB input and one LED indicator at the front. The charging pad is lightweight and comes included in the box along with the detachable USB cable.
You have to place the pTron Bassbuds Vista case face-up on the charging and you can see the indicator in the pad changes from red to blue which indicates that it is actively charging the earbuds. When the charging starts you can also see the LED blinking in the case as well.
The audio quality of the pTron Bassbuds Vista is quite good, especially since 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 10mm 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
|Stereo Calls||Built Quality|
|Type-C charging||Battery Capacity|
|Great battery life||Fit in ears|
|IPX4 protection||No Dual pairing|
After using it for a week I am totally impressed with the audio quality. 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.
As this is a review unit, in which case the product I received might be a bit faulty because the Bluetooth connection on it is not that stable. The sound starts breaking once in a while without any reason or keeping it a bit far than 1 meter. But otherwise, it is all good, the texture of the matte finish on it feels amazing.
Considering the price of Rs.1,299 you can definitely go for the pTron Bassbuds Vista 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.
