Today’s 2020 wireless earbud review is on the BEBEN X8 Bluetooth 5.0 True Wireless Earbuds. They are affordable but easy to use and come in a plethora of unique colors.
What comes in the box
- Two Bluetooth Earbuds (M size is installed)
- A charging Case
- 6 Pairs Ear Caps (Size S/ M/ L)
- 1 x Type C Cable(30CM/1FT)
- 1 x User Manual
Design & Comfort
The Beben X8 Bluetooth 5.0 True Wireless Earbuds come in a round, sturdy but unique-looking charging case. You get 6 pairs of tips to choose from. This will help you get a proper and secure fit and also help with noise-isolation. The buds do not at all feel heavy in the ear and will not cause fatigue when used for a lengthy period. They feel comfortable in the ear but don’t feel loose or like they will slip out. A single earbud weighs just 4.7g, making the Beben X8 very lightweight to wear.
Instead of touch-sensitive controls, these wireless earbuds come with a physical button on each wireless earbud. Using them while working out can be a hassle though.
Available in Black, Blue, Grey, Green, Mint, Pink, and White.
The charging case is round and not too bulky. But not too pocket-friendly either because of the odd round shape. There are LED lights on the inside to indicate battery life status. The USB port on the back of it has a cover to keep dust from entering it. The case is magnetic to help keep the lid closed and the space for the earbuds inside the case is also magnetic so they sit in there properly and firmly.
Just one charge can give up to 6 hours of playtime and the charging case can give an extra 4 charges.
The sound quality is satisfactory for the price that you pay. Though it is nothing out of this world. It is extremely clear with enjoyable highs and mids as well as really intense bass and enough volume.
Call quality is good enough for callers on both ends to be able to hear each other with no problem. However, it is obviously not comparable to top-tier earbuds such as the Sony WF1000XM3.
The buds have Bluetooth 5.0 and offer fast and solid connectivity. They immediately go into pairing mode once removed from the case. This makes the pairing process simple and speedy.
The Beben X8 Bluetooth 5.0 True Wireless Earbuds have physical buttons instead of touch-sensitive features. One button on each bud and using the buttons is not at all complicated. Press once to pick or hang up a call, one press of a button on any earbud to play/pause music, two presses of the button on the right bud for the next song, two presses of the button on the left bud for the previous song, press and hold the left bud button to increase volume, press and hold the right bud button to lower volume and three clicks to activate Siri, etc.
The IP68 Water-proof feature protects these earbuds and the charging case from getting damaged by sweat and rain, making them suitable to be used while at the gym. Although, the company clearly states on its Amazon page NOT to dip them in water.
ANC (Active Noise Cancelling Technology)
No Active Noise Cancelling Technology. Though, these buds can provide decent noise-isolation for a better music listening experience.

Quality & Materials Used
The charging case has a magnetic top as well as magnets to keep the earbuds securely inside it. The exterior of it is also finger-print proof which is always a plus. The earbuds are made of plastic but are not at all cheap quality and can hold well.
At the time of this review, the Beben X8 Bluetooth 5.0 True Wireless Earbuds are priced at $33.99.

The Beben X8 Bluetooth 5.0 True Wireless Earbuds are almost dirt-cheap if you compare their price to the features you get. Clearly, these buds do not compete with any of the wireless buds from known brands that are sold for more money. But, these aren’t horrible quality either. To conclude, they are absolutely worth giving a try if you don’t want to pay over $100 for name-brand wireless buds and want to own a pair for cheap.
