Hands down the best product I have ever been honoured enough to experience for its price, I have split this review up into paragraphs, so feel free to skip to a certain paragraph or just read through the whole thing for a general insight, the 1st will cover sound quality, the 2nd battery life, the 3rd will cover my personal usage of them and how they perform in those situations and the 4th and final paragraph is just other general information. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- (1) The sound quality is clear and crisp, the 10mm driver allows for delivery of sounds (yes I have tested) from about 20Hz to about 17,500Hz. So you really get the delivery of deep bases, and although you dont quite get the full human hearing range of 20,000Hz, 17,500Hz should be more than suitable for most types of audio you will be listening to. (2) The battery life is really great, doing a bit of experimenting then informed predictions, I have predicted that these headphones will last me for about a month or more of light use (mostly while on transport) with the charging case, and if I have a really long trip that will completely drain the earphones, I can juggle them in mono mode so one is charging while I listen with the other, but if I need both in to cancel noise in the world around me, just a quick 5-10 minute charge and I get a lot more listening time. (3) I used to use bone conduction earphones for sports, which can be good if I need to hear, but it doesn't cut it in places like the gym or other loud places, these earphones have been a perfect replacement for these situations and in most exercised I have subjected them to (running, jumping, weights, general CrossFit/station sort of exercise.), they haven't fallen out and I haven't needed to readjust them at any point. (4) These earphones due to being in-ear I have found to better than my headphones with a 30mm driver, it passively cancels a lot of every day noise, which I can only achieve with my headphones by turning the volume up, and the sound is delivered more crisp and loud due to being in-ears. The capacitive touch controls are also really useful just making the interface more easy and fluid to use. I have really enjoyed using these earphones and I can see that I will continue to use them especially when doing things like exercise and other noisy activities.

Huge improvement over T1-Pro which sounds muddy when compared. T1-Pro has a bit more bass I believe. In my opinion, the Tranya Rimor (for earbuds) have an unbelievable sound quality overall. Best ear buds I have experienced in 2019 under USD$100 (vs. Lypertek Tevi, Tozo T6, Sabbat e12 ultra, Tranya T1-Pro). Rimor 's sound is open + spacious (3D like), detailed, soundstage is excellent, bass is deep and accurate, musical, lively and engaging. Right sound balance for my ears and musical taste (Jazz, Latin Jazz, R&B, House, Reggae/Dub, classical, acoustic). Changing ear tips can make a large difference in your sound experience (eg. can improve bass, reduce outside/background noise, improve detail, etc) . Make sure the fit is tight. Foam tips sounds so much better and are more comfortable than silicone tips (for me).
Comfort – Quickly became the most comfortable TWS I own. Even more comfortable than the lightweight Soundpeats TrueDot (only 3.5g each) largely in part due to the contours of the earbud and the materials used. The earbuds are much smaller than I anticipated and fit securely letting me wear them with confidence. Connectivity – Some of the best right up there with my Soundcore Liberty 2 Pros. I was able to walk around my two-story apartment and only experience slight interruptions near the far corners of my apartment. I left my DAP stationary upstairs while going downstairs for a drink of water. This is above average when compared to other TWS I own. Isolation – One of the most surprising attributes of the Rimor. Before these came out, I remember members of Head-fi were discussing what Environmental Noise Cancelling (ENC) meant and if was going to be effective. Well, now I know. These are NOT active noise cancelling but still manage to isolate the outside world better than other TWS in my collection. I was unable to hear the fan from the bathroom while I was next door in my office. Also, to the annoyance of my girlfriend, I was unable to hear the whistling from the kettle downstairs while I was conducting my initial listening impressions. However, I still heard my dog bark when someone was at the door. Like I said, not active but very good passive isolation. Much better than average. Sound – Some TWS I use on a regular basis are the Anbes 359, Earfun Free, and Soundcore Liberty 2 pros (L2P). Coming from those it is immediately apparent that the Rimor do not focus on bass. If you are looking for bass head TWS these are not them. Instead the Rimor have chosen to focus on the mid and high frequencies. Orchestral, acoustic, Jazz, and basically any music with instruments will sound well on the Rimor. Rap, hip hop, EDM and the like will not be satisfactory due to the lack of sub bass. If you are like me, you probably listen to a wide range of musical genres. I found myself gravitating toward music with soundstage and instrument separation while listening to the Rimor. A short list of songs I enjoyed are: Fire and Rain – James Taylor Fire On the Mountain – Grateful Dead When I come Around – Green Day Can’t Find My Way Home – Haley Reinhart (original sounds good too) Capsized – Andrew Bird I Want To Break Free – Queen and anything from Tom Petty Conclusion - As you can see, classic rock seems to shine on the Rimor. What the Rimor lack in punchy bass they make up for in clarity, soundstage, and imaging. If this sounds suitable for your musical preferences than the Rimor should on your list when considering TWS under $100. P.S I am expecting to be able to make a comparison with the Shanling MTW100 shortly. I will update my review after those arrive.
So I've just got the Rimor today. A little background: the Rimor is my first pair of wireless earbuds. I've also considered the Tozo T6s, but out of personal preference, I liked these better. (I liked the touch control functions on these more) I really wanted a pair of wireless earbuds since I always had to bring my phone with me while listening to music and it always took a while to find those wired earbuds sometimes. Comfort: These are moderately comfortable. I feel like my ears would probably get tired of these after some time. When I first put them in, the sound wasn't as clear, so I readjusted them. This changed everything, so even if you buy a pair and it doesn't sound as good, change the positioning. This helped the clarity a lot. Readjusting also helps the comfort level of these! Connectivity: Awesome! I left my phone downstairs and went upstairs with no weird dropouts or issues. There was one dropout, but that might have been because I also had my Chromebook on while the earbuds were connected to my phone. Isolation: Pretty good for some noise cancellation. These are ENC (environmental noise cancellation) so it does cancel out some of that background sound better than regular wired earbuds. However, don't expect any miracles because it's not the same as active noise cancellation. Sound: These sound pretty close to my wired earbuds! Keep in mind that these seem to focus primarily on vocals and the mids and highs, not as much the bass. However, the bass is still there and for me, it's pretty good. The sound is majorly affected by fit, so play around with them before giving up. Charging case: small and portable! I would compare them to galaxy buds, except this case is still a bit bigger. USB-C; this is a plus for Android users except I'm an iPhone user so this was okay. Controls: Love them! Touch control, so they are a bit sensitive but I have no problems with accidental touches. There is a possibility that you might press twice for volume but it pauses instead. I find this to be fine and not a big problem. Battery life: pretty good so far! These last a long time! Side note: these sometimes have a static noise at the beginning of a song. For example, I might pause it, and when I play it again, it might have some static. It soon goes away, but I'm wondering if this is normal. Conclusion: Great product so far! If you're a basshead though, maybe not buy these as they're not tuned too much for the bass.
