Dudios Free Mini Bluetooth Earbuds review: A quality set of buds at a wonderful affordable price

Wireless Bluetooth earbuds have become one of the most popular accessories for people across the world in recent years, as they're useful for listening to audio without the hassle of dealing with standard earbud cords. In addition, many models come with microphones, which allow you to use the earbuds to make calls. Recently, audio accessory developer Dudios released one of their latest models of earbuds, the Dudios Free Mini Bluetooth Earbuds. After using them for about a week now, I can confidently say that they're fantastic, though an issue with the microphone keeps them from being completely perfect.

The best thing about the Dudios Free Mini Bluetooth Earbuds is that they sound great and stay securely in your ears, which are two things that I often can't say about earbuds, wired or wireless. Most of the earbuds I've used in my life either were uncomfortable and fell out all the time or sounded terrible, but thankfully, these earbuds suffer from neither of those issues. If you have larger ears than most, don't worry; the earbuds come with a larger set of rubber tips that you can swap out for the default ones. The sound of the earbuds isn't incredible, but the audio experience is strong enough that you'll be pretty happy with it. The earbuds also come with a microphone, too — I tested it out with a few calls, and my voice was crystal clear to the person on the other end of the line.

When it comes to Bluetooth earbuds, it doesn't get much better than these.

A neat feature that the Dudios Free Mini Bluetooth Earbuds have is touch control. With touch control, you can do things like hang up or answer calls or stop and start a song by tapping the outside of an earbud with your finger. This feature is very convenient if you're often in situations where pulling your phone out may be cumbersome, such as when working out in the gym or in the middle of a crowded area. The earbuds last for about four hours on a full charge, and their case doubles as their recharging station — simply pop the earbuds into the case, and it will charge them back to full power in a little while. The case can do this four times before needing to be charged itself with micro-USB, but the ability to charge on-the-go like this several times is incredibly handy. Finally, the earbuds are very easy to pair to your device, and the connection is stable and strong. The earbuds are paired with each other right out of the box, so you won't need to worry about syncing them up.

What you'll love less about the Dudios Free Mini Bluetooth Earbuds

Honestly, there's almost nothing I don't like about these earbuds. The only real issue I have with them is that the microphone's range feels a bit too large. When I tested out making a call in the middle of a store, the person on the other end told me that, while my voice was clear, they could hear a lot of background noise that cluttered up the line. This means that these earbuds won't be a great choice if you need to make calls on-the-go where you need your end to be very silent when you aren't speaking.

Should you buy the Dudios Free Mini Bluetooth Earbuds?

Overall, if you're looking for a pair of new Bluetooth wireless earbuds, I can't recommend the Dudios Free Mini Bluetooth Earbuds enough. They sound great, they're comfortable and secure to wear, they have simple and useful touch control functionality, and they have a strong battery life with an awesome case that recharges them while you're out-and-about.

If you're someone who needs to be able to make calls without noticeable background noise, these earbuds won't be for you. However, pretty much anyone else will love the Dudios Free Mini Bluetooth Earbuds and their excellent quality across the board.
