What is good: The Wings Vibe support touch controls with an impressive touch response, something even the expensive earbuds struggle to get right. When it comes to sound quality, the treble is clear and the vocals is decent too.

What could have been better: The sound output is devoid of bass and that spoils the experience.

For the price, the earbuds from are a treat for anyone looking for TWS earbuds in budget. The Qualcomm aptX support, IPX7 rating, and 35-hour battery life, wireless charging support make ZEB-Sound Bomb Q Pro a worthy option. Moreover, they have responsive touch controls. As for the shortcomings, the sound output feels a bit botched up, considering the bass and treble overlap if you listen to loud genres.
