RedMagic DAO TWS Wireless Bluetooth Gaming Earbuds Review: A Dream Machine for Gamers with DTS Headphone:X Blessing
As game experiences and technology continue to advance, the demand for gaming headphones is increasing. However, traditional esports headphones are generally designed as over-ear headphones, which can be somewhat bulky and not convenient for carrying around. Prolonged use of these headphones can lead to ear discomfort and fatigue. Recently, I acquired the RedMagic DAO TWS Wireless Bluetooth Gaming Earbuds, which perfectly address the pain points associated with traditional esports headphones and are suitable for various aspects of life and entertainment.
These headphones, dubbed the all-scenario esports flagship headphones, feature a transparent and futuristic aesthetic design, similar in size to typical TWS (True Wireless Stereo) Bluetooth earphones. They are also Hi-Res certified and come equipped with the striking DTS Headphone:X audio technology, offering players a new listening experience and outstanding gaming audio. Let's take a closer look at these new TWS headphones together.
Appearance: Transparent Armor and RGB Lighting for Enthusiasts
In recent years, many TWS headphones share a common design, but the RedMagic DAO TWS Wireless Bluetooth Gaming Earbuds are quite different. The minimalist packaging allows you to see the product through the transparent front cover, adorned with the "REDMAGIC" brand logo and detailed specifications on the back. Most prominently, there is the DTS Headphone:X logo, indicating the product's audio reliability.
Upon opening the box, I was pleasantly surprised by the rich accessories included with the RedMagic DAO TWS Wireless Bluetooth Gaming Earbuds. Apart from the earphones themselves, the package contains a Type-C to Type-C cable and a USB to Type-C data cable, both of which are braided. Additionally, there's a leather magnetic dust bag, a Dongle, a user manual, two pairs of replaceable ear tips, and a transparent case cover. This attention to detail reflects the brand's commitment to a comprehensive user experience.
Looking at the RedMagic DAO TWS Wireless Bluetooth Gaming Earbuds, they maintain a silver-gray color scheme that exudes a high-tech premium feel. The device consists of a base, an earphone case, and the earphones themselves. The base has a silver-gray coating with a fine matte finish for a refined tactile experience. The top features the "Dangfeng" branding and classic warning line pattern, while the connection part with the earphone case is transparent plastic with RGB lighting when in wired mode. The product's design perfectly appeals to gamers and enthusiasts.
The earphone case adopts a small square design with a transparent outer shell, accented by a bright silver honeycomb pattern on the sides, adding visual interest. The case cover slides open, revealing the black and transparent earphones inside, creating a futuristic, high-tech look. Notably, both the case interior and the earphone handles have "Dangfeng" branding with eye-catching lighting effects, delivering an explosive visual impact.
Audio Quality: Enhanced by DTS Headphone:X for Immersive Experience
For TWS products, having excellent audio quality is a fundamental requirement, and the RedMagic DAO TWS Wireless Bluetooth Gaming Earbuds deliver on this front. They are equipped with an 11mm linear graphene unit, paired with wool paper biological diaphragms/LCP membranes to enhance bass depth and treble extension, ensuring high-fidelity sound reproduction.
However, it's not just the solid hardware that sets the RedMagic DAO TWS Wireless Bluetooth Gaming Earbuds apart from the competition. It's the inclusion of DTS Headphone:X audio technology that truly elevates the audio experience. This technology, developed by DTS for headphones, transforms the traditional stereo experience into a highly immersive surround sound experience, transcending the constraints of fixed sound unit layouts or specific channel configurations.
Notably, such an experience was previously only available with over-ear headphones, and it had not been implemented in TWS products. Red Magic and DTS have a longstanding and deep partnership in the mobile phone industry, with Red Magic gaming phones consistently providing players with an immersive experience, thanks to DTS:X Ultra audio technology. This time, the collaboration extends to their headphone product line. With DTS Headphone:X audio technology, the RedMagic DAO TWS Wireless Bluetooth Gaming Earbuds deliver accurate 3D audio spatialization and positioning, allowing users to experience multi-channel audio effects with just a two-channel headphone setup.
With the support of DTS Headphone:X audio technology, the listening experience with the Dangfeng Bluetooth earphones is truly impressive. For example, when testing the audio performance with a variety of music genres, such as Adele's "Hello," these earphones exhibit the clarity expected from flagship products. The low bass notes are clear and resonant, while high notes are vibrant, creating an immersive sound experience.
On the computer side, users can download the DTS Sound Unbound plugin from the Windows 10 app store to enjoy a 3D surround immersive audio experience with the Dangfeng Bluetooth earphones. This was evident while watching popular movies like "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3," where DTS Headphone:X technology effectively recreated the sound environment of the sci-fi world, making it feel like Star-Lord, Rocket, and other characters were whispering right next to me, creating a fully immersive atmosphere. The deep -48dB AI active noise-cancelling technology effectively isolated indoor background noise and distractions, providing a peaceful and enjoyable listening experience.
Furthermore, the earphones offer an advantage in games like "CS:GO," "PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds," and "PUBG." With DTS Headphone:X audio technology, the Dangfeng Bluetooth earphones deliver a more realistic and intense gaming experience. For example, when I used the Dangfeng Bluetooth earphones paired with the Dangfeng Silver Wing mechanical gaming keyboard for a "Battle Royale" game, the surround sound inside the capsule during the parachute drop easily immersed me in the game world. The DTS Headphone:X audio technology enhances the subtle sound effects in the game, accurately representing the sound size, direction, and spatial effects of streets, rooms, and other in-game environments. This level of detail is a game-changer, allowing players to master sound-based positioning, a crucial skill in games like "PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds."
In summary, the RedMagic DAO TWS Wireless Bluetooth Gaming Earbuds offer an impressive experience for both gaming and daily use. These TWS earphones excel in various aspects, including design, audio performance, gaming experience, and practical features.
With their transparent design, metal frame, and DTS Headphone:X audio technology, they provide a highly immersive audio experience with excellent sound reproduction and positioning accuracy. Thanks to the high-quality Qualcomm S5 flagship chip, the second-generation Qualcomm S3 audio adapter, and low-latency algorithms, these earphones deliver an outstanding gaming experience, comparable to wired headphones. The Dangfeng Bluetooth earphones provide a comprehensive user experience and multiple features that cater to both gamers and everyday users.
In short, if you're looking to replace your heavy and hot over-ear gaming headphones with a more comfortable TWS option that also offers noise-cancelling and high-quality music playback for daily use, the RedMagic DAO TWS Wireless Bluetooth Gaming Earbuds are an excellent choice, especially for gaming enthusiasts.
