The touch controls make it easier for hands-free control over the contents. On the other hand, the build quality of the whole package is basic. These earbuds under Rs.1,000 are quite basic both in looks and feel, but one can use them as a starter.
The charging case of the pTron Bassbuds Duo has the branding at the front and there is a USB Type-C port at the bottom of the case. You can also find an indicator below the pTron branding on the case.

Frankly speaking, the audio quality of the pTron Bassbuds Duo is basic or average. The sound has a soothing effect but does not break or distorts on full volume. The 13mm Hi-Fi Dynamic Speakers with noticeable Bass. The bass is very prominent on higher volume and overall the quality is up to the mark for this price range. There seems to have been no issue while playing games with these headphones.

Comfort and Usage
Each earbud of ptron Bassbuds Duo is very lightweight and after fitting in ears it will feel like nothing is in the ears because it weighs 4grams each. 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 worn while workout, while the silicon tip is adjustable with two other spare ear tips of different sizes. Along with this, the touch controls make it more user-friendly and accessible with any one hand.
The microphone is quite impressive but one thing I have noticed in most of the pTron earbuds including this that in outdoor usage it faces a problem to receive the voice properly while I am talking in a crowded place with a mask on and without as well. In such a situation, you need to talk loudly so that the microphone can receive your sound properly.
Battery and Charging
The pTron Bassbuds Duo has a playtime of 15 hours and 120 hours standby time, which is one of the best right now in the market. The Type-C charging port is at the back of the case and it can charge with 1.5 hours from 0 to 100. One fully charged case can charge the earbuds almost 2-3 times.
After using it for a week I am totally impressed with the audio quality for a sub Rs.1,000 earbud. The whole case of the TWS is compact and can be easily carried anywhere. Overall the lightweight nature of the earbuds are the prime USP for them.
Considering the price of Rs.699 you can definitely go for the pTron Bassbuds Duo TWS earbuds especially if you want to try some basic earbuds. You can also consider the pTron Bassbuds ANC 992 which has similar features to the Bassbuds Duo but has an additional digital display on its case.
