Product Review: Tranya Wireless Bluetooth 5.0 Headphones (T3)
Tranya Bluetooth 5.0 Wireless Headphones
The earbuds use BT 5.0 & Realtek chips for crystal clear frequency and low latency as far as 10 meters out. The buds also have passive noise canceling, which will silence most outside noises while keeping you in control.
The headphones come with an 800mAh charging case that can recharge your buds 7x for a total playtime of 60+ hours.
They're an excellent alternative to the more expensive Galaxy Buds or Apple AirPods, and the sound quality is surprisingly loud & crisp with deep basses and treble sounds.
With high quality 500+ ratings on Amazon and a one year warranty, you cannot go wrong with these spry headphones.

Top 5 Pros
I think you'll see the positive features right away, but the real magic is when you start using them.
Five Amazing Features
- Good Sound Quality
- Long Play Times
- Stereo/Mono Modes
- Affordable Alternative
Good Sound Quality
For $50 these headphones sound surprisingly good. The bass and trebles come through quite well and it makes the audio stand out.
The HD Stereo and BT 5.0 technology help out tremendously, but it's the design that brings everything together. Despite not having active noise cancelling, the ear tips were crafted in a way that nearly makes background noises disappear.
And while I'm not saying these headphones are superior to their well-known counterparts, they have enough in the tank to put up a good fight.
As a Galaxy Buds owner, I know first-hand how important auto-pairing is, and luckily these headphones do not disappoint.
The only time setup's involved is upon first pairing, but even that's pretty simple. You just have to take out the earbuds, go into your Bluetooth settings, and locate T3 from your list. After that your buds will auto-pair every time they're taken out of the case.
The charging case is definitely a lot bigger than my Galaxy Buds case but the results are very similar. The biggest difference is that the Tranya case can't be charged wirelessly; you'll have to use the Micro USB cable + adapter (not included) to charge it. There's a port on the back of the case for this.
Long Play Times
The earbuds will last anywhere from 6-8 hours on a full charge and 60+ hours with the case. This makes them ideal for long road trips, vacations, business trips, etc.
The charging case contains four front facing indicator lights that will tell you how long till its charged.
Note: The buds can simultaneously charge with the case.
The headphones/case have overcharge, overheat, and short-circuit protections meaning they won't be damaged even if they're getting charged at 100%. That's very important particularly for overnight charging.
The buds have press buttons on each side which control volume, song selection (previous/skip/pause/play), phone calls (answer/rejection), and your selected voice assistant (Google/Siri).
They can also be split in two via the mono mode, which allows you to pair each bud to a separate device. The user guide contains step by step instructions on how to do this correctly. It's very important that you follow the guidelines otherwise you may have syncing difficulties.
Depending on where you are, you may experience signal interruptions. This is due to electromagnetic interference and should subside once you move towards a favorable location.
More information about syncing errors can be found in my "Top 5 Cons" section.
At $49.99 this comes in at $100+ less than the AirPods and about $80-90 less than the Galaxy Buds.
So for folks on a budget, these are the headphones for you minus a few caveats. For example, don't expect these to sound as good as Bose or Beats options though honestly only audiophiles will notice the difference.
Other things like the earbud style, case style, and bonus features are altered to cut costs, but don't let that discourage you from trying these headphones. Personally I've been very happy with this product and it's my go-to alternative for when I go on trips.
I'm a big proponent of affordable, high quality electronics, and this product fits both.
Top 5 Cons
The downsides are not as obvious but one particular con is hard to ignore.
Five Biggest Problems
- Bulky/Difficult to Press Buttons
- Can Fall Out of Ear
- Syncing Errors
- Poor Call Reception
- No Active Noise Cancellation (ANC)
Bulky/Difficult to Press Buttons
Tranya's wireless headphones truly stand out literally and figuratively, and that may be a problem to some.
For me the bulkiness is a little distracting, but it's not something that'll stop me from using them. The company does have other versions for people with smaller ears, so if it's the size of the buds that bothers you, then please try the T1-Pro variant.
One other issue is the button pressing. The earbuds are tough to press while in your ear, and every time I want to advance a song or pause/play a track, I have to remove an earbud and press it that way.
I wish they would've used small click buttons or a touch interface like the Galaxy Buds have.
Can Fall Out of Ear
This goes hand-in-hand with the size of the earbuds. Because of the way they're shaped, they're susceptible to falling out of your ear if there's too much movement.
However this will depend on your ear shape/size. For many this won't be an issue but for others it could be a major problem.
By far the biggest complaint I've seen is the syncing difficulties.
I've read reviews that complained how only one earbud worked while the other stayed idle. More-so there were issues going from mono to stereo mode with complaints that the audio kept getting interrupted.
A lot of this can be fixed with a simple reset (explained in user guide), but understandably you don't want to keep resetting them every time they're out of sync.
That's why I recommend staying in stereo mode and to only use mono mode if you absolutely have to.
Poor Call Reception
The second biggest complaint I've seen is the call functionality. Consumers have complained that calls on both ends are tinny and disruptive.
I've used the Tranya headphones to make/answer calls a few times and haven't experienced this problem yet, so perhaps it has to do with your location.
Remember that electromagnetic interference will impact your phone call quality, and it's very common in areas with a lot of cables, subways, trains, buses, and dense urban locations.
You should attempt to make calls from a variety of places and see if things change. If you're still having trouble, then please contact Tranya at firstname.lastname@example.org or on their website (Tranya.com) and Facebook page.
No Active Noise Cancellation (ANC)
This product doesn't officially have ANC though it does offer passive noise cancellation, which does a good job at blocking out certain sounds.
Still I can imagine how a lack of ANC could be a concern especially when it comes to travel. I've used these headphones while traveling and found that it does a really fine job at bringing the peace.
I think most consumers will be okay with the lack of active noise cancellation, but for those that want to eliminate all background noises, try seeking out headphones with strong ANC.
Any company willing to innovate for the everyday consumer is worth reviewing, and in my opinion, Tranya has put out a solid product.
I would give the Tranya Wireless Bluetooth 5.0 Headphones 4 out of 5 stars.
The headphones sound good, they have a long battery life, the auto-pairing is great, and it's much cheaper than its competitors.
On the downside, the headphones are a little bulky, they lack active noise cancellation, and they may cut out from time to time. Still, I don't think those cons are severe enough to deter consumers from trying them out.
I would recommend this item to anyone looking for cost-saving Bluetooth wireless headphones and to newcomers of wireless headphones. I haven't even mentioned that their essentially sweat-proof and good for workouts.
So if you have some money to spare and seek quality + value, then you won't go wrong with the Tranya Wireless Bluetooth 5.0 Headphones.
