QCY T17S: Fixation
As we mentioned earlier, the QCY T17S comes with a support strap so that it can be used safely by anyone who plays sports.
Despite that, it didn’t show a good hold during our test, however, this could have been a result of the bad choice of rubbers.
That’s why we always advise you to test all the rubbers by shaking your head at home, before putting it to the test on the street.
QCY T17S: Audio Test, Mic Test and Delay Test
QCY usually doesn’t disappoint in terms of audio, even more when added to the aptX codec.
This codec was created to deliver a sound quality very close to what was recorded, but for that, of course, the earphone has to be of quality and the smartphone needs to be compatible.
And when putting the sound quality of the QCY T17S to the test, we were dazzled by this union that delivered an extremely high volume level, well defined tones and super powerful bass.
Of course, the bass power will depend on the digital signature you choose, but the point here is that the tones are very well defined and don’t blow out when the volume is at the maximum level.
And it’s time to find out if Qualcomm’s Bluetooth 5.2 really is unbeatable.
During our lag test done with an entry-level smartphone, the QCY T17S showed no lag at all, even during FPS shooting sequences.
That is, regardless of the level of your smartphone, you will have an impeccable gaming experience with this earphone.
And to close with a flourish, we did the long-awaited microphone test, by the way, microphones, since the QCY T17S has four of them.
Well, despite that, this wasn’t the best result we’ve ever had here on the channel, but it’s a clear enough audio and with a good volume level.
QCY T17S: is it worth it?
If you are looking for a comfortable earphone to enjoy music or online games, this is an excellent choice.
The QCY T17S has a quality construction that guarantees a lot of comfort and great autonomy.
Plus, it delivers impeccable sound quality regardless of your musical style, and still guarantees zero delay on any smartphone.
Finally, it doesn’t have the best microphones we’ve seen around here, but they’re good enough for more informal conversations.
