The true wireless earbuds stable is filling up nicely on the mid- to high- end, with almost every major tech brand you can think of pushing their own offerings above S$200.

The entry-level models, however, are not so lucky. Apart from a few well-known names like Xiaomi, most low-cost models you can find on sites like Lazada are peddled by companies of doubtful origins and reliability.

Philips has been a stalwart on this front with a couple of affordable models, and their latest TAT2205 true wireless buds carry a price tag of just S$139 and is currently on a jaw-dropping launch promotional pricing of S$79.

Overall, it seems to check most of the boxes in and around the basic functionality of true wireless earbuds.

The charging case looks to be slightly larger than the size of a macaroon, according to official renders, and comes in a couple of fun colours.

You get around 4 hours of listening time from a single charge, and up to a total of 12 hours when paired with the juice in the case. Popping the earbuds back into the case for just 15 minutes gets you another hour of listening time, and a full charge of the case takes two hours via a USB-C port.

We can’t speak for audio performance (at least not yet before testing it), but I imagine there’s not much to complain about at this price point. It also touts an “echo cancellation” mic for clear calls and commanding your phone’s voice assistant.

The earbuds are even IP4X rated, so you can take them for a run without worries.

Grab the promotional pricing set on on ShopeeJuzsoppe (which is basically a Philips web store by the parent company TPVision) or Ishopchangi before it ends.
