Aukey EP T21 True Wireless Earbuds- Tailor Your Fit And Ultra-Lightweight

Design & Comfort

The Aukey EP-T21 True Wireless Earbuds come with extra ear tips in small and large sizes, while the medium ones are fixed on the buds.

The matte black, rectangular charging case is convenient as it won’t pick up on fingerprints and the lid is closed by a magnet to keep the buds safe. The wireless earbuds have a smooth, clean, and minimalist design and they come with built-in microphones to make calls. Design-wise, the stems make them look very Airpod-like. They are lightweight and very comfortable to wear. The tips provide a nice seal to keep out surrounding noise.

These wireless earbuds seem to only be available in black.

Charging Case

The charging case along with the earbuds has LED light indicators for charge status. The LED lights on the earbuds show through a little bit through the case lid as well. 

The battery life on these is not bad. With one charge, the Aukey EP-T21 true wireless earbuds can give up to 5 hours of playtime and the charging case can provide 6 extra charges, making the total playtime 35 hours.

Sound Quality

The Aukey EP-T21 earbuds have a 6 mm driver and they provide decent bass and good clarity. They work nicely for listening to podcasts too.

The extra tips can help you get the most appropriate fit for your ears and give you a good seal to provide you with some good noise isolation. The sound quality is good enough for the price.

Call Quality

Since these do not feature any active noise cancelation, the mic picks up quite a bit of noise from around you, and although you can be heard clearly, they make you sound like you’re far away which results in mediocre call quality.

Bluetooth

The Aukey EP-T21 true wireless earbuds come with the Bluetooth 5 technology. They are quick pairing and connectivity is stable and seamless.

These earbuds also feature mono mode and can be used independently of each other.

Control Features

Just like the AUKEY EP-N5 wireless earbuds, the Aukey EP-T21 true wireless earbuds have extremely user-friendly touch controls on each earpiece that control all the functions. Tap twice on the left or right earbud to answer or end a phone call, tap twice on the left or right earbud to play/pause a track, press and hold to reject a phone call, press and hold the left bud to go back a track, while pressing and holding the right bud will move you to the next track and three taps on the left bud will activate voice-assistant.

Water Resistance

These wireless earbuds are IPX4 rated. They can withstand sweat and are moisture-resistant. You can use these while you are at the gym with no problem at all.

ANC  (Active Noise Canceling Technology)

The Aukey EP-T21 true wireless earbuds do not have any Active Noise Cancelling Technology. However, you get some passive noise isolation due to the earbud tips producing a seal.
