With so many of us having to work from home these days, having a pair of headphones that can drown out the surrounding noise is essential. Tribit reached out to see if I wanted to test their new QuietPlus 50 headphones that are designed to block out as much noise as possible. As someone who works from home I’m always on the hunt for new noise-blocking technology, so I was happy to give these a spin. Overall, these headphones are incredibly comfortable and have excellent noise cancelation. Let’s dive into the basics so you can decide if they’re a good pair for you.
Out of the box and first use of the Tribit QuietPlus 50
As with most headphones, it was easy to set up and use right out of the box. The Tribit QuietPlus 50 comes with the headphones, a carrying bag, a charging cord, and a 3.5mm headphone wire. I charged them up to make sure they had full power before Bluetooth syncing them to my computer. They turned on quickly and my computer took a second to find the Bluetooth signal to connect. At first, I wasn’t sure I would like them due to how stiff they are – the cups aren’t fully spongy. However, after some time I realized they’re some of the most comfortable headphones I have. They’re also foldable for easy transportation, which is nice since they come with a bag.
Sound quality and noise cancellation
The noise cancellation on these headphones are the best part of them. Even without the ANC actively turned on, they still do an excellent job of blocking out sound because the ear cups fully enclose your entire ear. When I have the noise cancellation on, I can’t hear anything outside of my headphones. I’ve tested quite a few pairs of noise cancelling ones, and these are some of the best. The ANC is slightly obvious with the pressure/sound on the ears, so if you’re looking for one that isn’t as obvious, keep that in mind.
Overall comfort, microphone, battery, and Bluetooth
At first I wasn’t sure if I’d like the feel of the Tribit QuietPlus 50 headphones as they are a little stiffer than some headphones I have. However, after about an hour or so I barely even noticed them on my ears. They’re incredibly lightweight, too, since they’re mostly plastic instead of metal. The battery is long-lasting at 30+ hours. I can easily go multiple days of all-day use without a charge. If you’re time-crunched, though, a 5-minute charge can give you two hours of battery life.
The Bluetooth often connected easily, but there were a few times it needed to reconnect. Outside of that, it maintained a solid connection and never disconnected for no reason. The microphone is also noise cancelling which helps people hear you better.
