Compared to traditional drivers, graphene coated drivers are lighter, more precise and have excellent conductivity which requires less power to drive. This means that no matter what genre of music you are listening to, the bass, mids and high tones are clearly defined with low distortion.
I was very impressed by how stable and simple the pairing mode was. I can’t really fault it at all.
They sound much better than I anticipated for a sub £100 pair of buds. They sound balanced.
The mids are really good. Low end sounds are beefed up and in terms of bass, I was pleasantly surprised. There is a great depth of jolt impact without losing control. The same can also be said for the highs – they sound good! Really good in fact.
The Be Free5 slot right into the current sweet spot of sub £100 and offer more than enough in terms of quality audio, good battery life and the build quality to justify the price.
Best true wireless buds under £100
"There are a few sub-£100 true wireless buds available now but truth be told, most are a bit crap. Optoma NuForce's candidate for sub-ton domination, by contrast, do just about everything well, and are better than many buds costing more."
"In terms of comfort, fit and sound quality they do a good job, especially if you think of them as being primarily for gym use and/or for listening to gym-friendly, beat-driven music, from hip-hop to rock and electronic dance."
The earbuds themselves are attractive enough, with matte plastic construction and a high gloss stylized finish on the outer surface. Given the price, I was reasonably happy with the audio performance of the BE Free5 earbuds. In general, they tended to emphasize the midrange and highs, but there was some low end. In particular, I found the sound fairly balanced at volumes under 50%. With many earbuds, at these lower volumes, bass can be virtually nonexistent.
For the money and for a sports earbud – the quality you get with the BE Free5 is good.
Perhaps the one thing that stood out to me with the BE Free5 was that the bass was clearly “there” across a wide range of music types.
These Optoma NuForce BE Free5 headphones will not be the choice of an audiophile. But if you appreciate a decent sound, a low price in a sports format earbud then you may well struggle to find better overall package elsewhere.
Even without the wings they stayed in for faster interval runs.
Being light, they are not at all intrusive to wear.
The standard silicone tips, for me, formed an excellent seal.
The Nuforce BE Free5 are a very good, modern set of wireless earphones. They sit well in the ear and with a little bass boost through the player, they sound very neat. Definitely a fair offer for the price!
These have a really good design
They fit very comfortably indeed. Super comfy, super build quality.
Audio quality – wow! Very, very impressive indeed. These sound absolutely amazing. Very, very good high detailed sound. The mid-range sound really natural.
They go nice and low as well. Well controlled low frequencies and no clinical tinny pitch in the higher frequencies.
They just sound like a good well-rounded pair of earbuds and I think they a suited to plenty of different genres of music.
What I really like about these apart from audio quality is the very neat charging case. That is super useful.
I think Optoma have done an all-round fantastic job!
“As a true wireless headphone for budget-conscious music lovers, the Optoma NuForce BE Free5 is absolutely recommended. Minor deficiencies in handling are forgiving in terms of the very good sound quality and the price. It is an encouraging development that now even entry-level models in the True Wireless sector can't offer such a good sound quality.”
