And the newest hybrid cancellation earphone from Tronsmart has arrived, the stylish Apollo Air!
This earphone promises zero delay, perfect audio from its 6 microphones, and a highly immersive music experience with its 3 ANC modes!
The description is tempting, but is Apollo Air really a perfect earphone?
Find it out!
Apollo Air: design, construction and battery
Tronsmart bet their chips on a earphone that promises to be very versatile, but carries a relatively strange design.
Apollo Air features a medium-sized charging base and a great matte finish.
This finish guarantees a greater longevity to the product, as it is less prone to scratches.
In addition, the base charges a Type-C USB port for faster charging, plus a single LED that reports battery status.
The Apollo Air earphones, on the other hand, have a design aimed at the ear canal and a more protruding body, but with a flat head that favors sensitivity to the touch.
The earphones are finished in glossy finish, which can make them more prone to marks.
Regarding autonomy, Tronsmart’s new bet guarantees 5 hours of continuous music playback.
Finally, this earphone carries a splash protection for ip45.
Apollo Air: how to pair with the smartphone?
To pair Apollo Air, just open the base and remove the two earphones. Thus, they connect to each other and are available in the Bluetooth list.
An interesting thing about this Tronsmart is that it has simultaneous connection, which means that the earphones work independently and you can only use one if you need to!

Apollo Air: fixation
I confess that I was surprised by this earphone in our fixation test!
Despite having a very bulging body, it remained completely fixed even during the most brusque movements.
Apollo Air: Noise Canceling Modes (ANC)
And it’s time to meet Apollo Air’s 3 noise canceling modes!
ANC-ON is the immersive mode that muffles noise but does not cancel out loud noises. So, it hides the sound of your fan, but it doesn’t stop you from hearing someone calling you.
The Ambient cancel mode is an ANC that amplifies all external noise without spoiling the musical quality. That way, we can listen to our songs without them camouflaging important sounds.
The ANC-OFF mode is used to erase all sounds from an indoor environment and create a more immersive music experience. This is the mode to be used at home and enjoy our music to the fullest.
During our tests, all ANC modes fulfilled their role perfectly!
Apollo Air: audio test, microphone test and delay test
Please note that Apollo Air supports Codec aptX. In other words, if your smartphone is compatible, you will have a music experience with the quality very close to studios.
In our sound quality test, Apollo Air delivered a great stereo effect as well as a good volume level. Although it’s not the loudest we’ve ever seen, it’s nice and doesn’t blow the tones.
The bass is more prominent, but all tones are present and are very well defined!
And in the long-awaited delay test, Apollo Air proved that its Qualcomm Bluetooth 5.2 chipset is very advanced.
Even when tested on an entry-level smartphone, it didn’t show any delay!
Finally, we put the 6 microphones of the Tronsmart Apollo Air to the test!
We can say that this is a complete earphone, as it has a good volume level and virtually noise-free audio, so it is a perfect mic for any occasion.
Apollo Air: is it worth it?
Apollo Air has a very different design, but it works perfectly. It has a great fixation and delivers great sound quality with Codec aptX support and 3 ANC modes!
Plus, it features zero delay on any smartphone and even carries a perfect microphone for conversation or video conferencing.
Anyway, this is a pretty complete earphone!
