Design and Build

The packaging of the charging case is cool. The charging case is wrapped with the Doodle Edition sticker design, and at the front, you will see Camon x Mr Doodle! On the earbuds is also inscribed Mr Doodle! on the blue layer. The design of the earbuds is lovely.

Charging Case

The earbuds fit securely and comfortably with their ergonomic design. The Sonic 1 True Wireless earphones are a good set of well-rounded earbuds that fit securely and comfortably with their ergonomic design. The earbuds come in three different sizes of ear tips, which means you can always find the perfect fit for your ear. The ear tips are made of soft silicone, which helps create a seal that blocks out ambient noise.

The earbuds are made of plastic, and each weighs 4.65g, which makes them lightweight. While using the earbuds, I moved my head left and right and kept on nodding for it to fall, but I didn’t notice it leaving my ear. Furthermore, unlike previous earbuds used, the Sonic 1 doesn’t cause earaches, headaches, or pains as a result of using it for a very long period of time.

The Sonic 1 Doodle edition earbuds have a touch-sensitive control on each side of the earbud. With these controls, you can play, pause, call, activate voice assistant, and perform other operations on the earbud. Overall, it has good design and build quality. 

Sound and Call Performance

The earbuds did a wonderful job when it came to listening to my favorite music tracks. The bass wasn’t that powerful, but I felt a touch of it.  ‘powerful’ but it was present. Vocals were clear and crisp, and highs and lows sounded well-mixed.

TECNO built a sound mobile application for the TECNO Sonic 1, which can be downloaded and installed on iOS and Android. The name of the app is “AUDPUD.”. With the app, you get to experience improved sound quality and bass, but it needs some improvement as it isn’t user-friendly.

For the call quality, I could hear the sound clearly and vice versa with no background noise. The TECNO Sonic 1 features dual-mic noise cancellation. However, you only get a noise cancellation for phone calls, as music playback doesn’t offer any active noise cancellation during my review. 

Battery Life and Connectivity

Each earbud has about 45 mAh of battery capacity, which takes about 1 hour and 30 minutes to get from 0 to 100%, while the charging case comes with an 800 mAh battery and takes about 3 hours to get fully charged. According to TECNO, the Sonic 1 Doodle Edition Wireless Earbuds can last for about 50 hours. That statement is true, as it served me for about 50 hours on heavy usage with non-stop music playing times.

We could not test the water resistance feature, but if you wish to do that, ensure you don’t stay under the rain for too long so you don’t get any components damaged. It is also important to note that this earbud is not good for game enthusiasts, as the latency can be noticed while playing high-end games.
