Find out if this combo is really possible in our full review:
Soundpeats S5: design, construction and battery
We couldn’t start our analysis any other way than talking about this impressive design!
The new sports bet from Soundpeats has a very large construction, which is normal for models in the category, but at the same time, it manages to be a very discreet earphone.
The Soundpeats S5 has a relatively large body and a huge charging base that are designed to ensure safety for high-impact athletes.
Reading this way it looks like this is yet another weird and scandalous sports earphone, but Soundpeats have invested in an elegant design that brings an excellent matte finish.
This finish is responsible for the beauty of the earphones and also guarantees less scratches and marks.
In addition, Soundpeats S5 has an ear canal-facing construction, which can mean good bass gain, and is capable of achieving 5 hours of continuous playback.
What’s more, it features modern ipx7 protection for water resistance.
This means that these earphones can be submerged in up to 1 meter of water for 30 minutes.
And as you’d expect, Soundpeats S5 needs a charging base as big as it is, doesn’t it?
Despite not being very practical to carry, this base has a great matte finish and still brings the ease of charging via USB type-C.
Speaking of ease, the base even features 4 battery level notification LEDs so you know exactly when to charge your earphones!
Soundpeats S5: how to pair with smartphone?
Soundpeats S5 has an automatic simultaneous connection, that is, the earphones work independently and connect automatically.
So, just remove the earphones from the base (at the same time or not) they connect to each other and are already available in the Bluetooth list.

Soundpeats S5: fixation
We opened our tests by testing the most important quality in a sports earphone: the grip.
After all, there’s no point in a sports earphone that falls out of your ears during exercise, isn’t it?
That’s why we’re happy to see that Soundpeats S5 has an excellent fixation and remains super shaped during physical exercises, even during the most brusque movements.
In other words, this is the perfect earphone for those who practice high performance sports!
Soundpeats S5: audio test, microphone test and delay test
And since a sports earphone isn’t just about fixing, we tested the sound quality of the Soundpeats S5!
During our test, the first thing we noticed was that it doesn’t reach very high volume.
Even so, Soundpeats S5 delivers a stereo effect with very well-defined tones.
But, probably because of the volume level, it doesn’t deliver very powerful bass. In fact, here all the tones are quite balanced and none outshine the other.
In summary: This earphone delivers great sound quality for those who like calmer music, but for those who like to feel the beat, it might not be the best option.
And now it’s time to check if the promise of a good Gamer partner has really been fulfilled!
In our delay test, Soundpeats S5 delivered a great result for a earphone that wasn’t designed for gaming.
After all it had a super subtle delay of about 0.2s when running a FPS game on an entry-level smartphone.
And, as you may already know, this type of smartphone has very simple hardware, so we think this was a really great result.
So, if you have an intermediate or more advanced smartphone, you certainly won’t have any kind of sound delay in games or videos.
And to close with a flourish, we did our long-awaited microphone test!
And just like in the sound quality test, Soundpeats S5 had relatively low audio, but very clean.
Despite not having a very loud microphone, it delivers very clean audio with no muffling or interference.
So, unless you’re in a place with a lot of noise, this is a really great mic.
Soundpeats S5: is it worth it?
If you’re looking for a versatile sports earphone and don’t care too much about the volume level, this is a great choice!
The Soundpeats S5 features a super low-key and durable design that does the job of not falling out of your ears during high performance sports.
Plus, it delivers great sound quality, but only for those who like more balanced music.
And if in addition to being a sportsman you are also a Gamer, be aware that this is one of the few sports earphones that guarantee a great gaming experience.
Finally, Soundpeats S5 has a microphone that can be used for any purpose, including video conferencing!
