The company deserves a pat on the back for offering decent build quality at this price point. The charging case provides decent build quality and also supports Type-C charging. It has a LED display on the front that will showcase the battery level. The inside of the case is coloured in bright red and provides a good aesthetic look.
The earbuds sport a design that is as the company claims ergonomically engineered for comfort fit. It supports silicone ear tips so you can replace them with extra tips that come in the box to provide a comfortable fit. The silicon tips provide great comfort during longer use cases.

But the app offers a lot of features such as an equalizer, customizing gestures, battery levels and much more which can come in handy when you’re using the earbuds.
Truke Air Buds+: Gestures

With gestures, you can easily change music and answer calls on the go. Also, you can tap twice to access your preferred voice assistant whether it is Google Assistant or Apple Siri.
As an added bonus you also get two different audio modes depending on the purpose you are using the earbuds for. Air Buds plus has Game and Music mode which you can switch between with a triple tap on either earbud to access. The gaming mode is tuned to provide surround sound effects for identifying footsteps or gunshots and remain always ahead of other players. On the other hand, Music mode provides cinematic sound effects for all your music sessions.
