The design of the earbuds and case is pretty generic and unappealing. It's a classic black matte look and feel. The earbud Marshmellow tips included are there to assist with the best comfort. The style is very reminiscent of the current format of truly wireless earbuds. Their small size makes them ideal for use during sports activities: they stay in place well. They are also designed to prevent ambient noise from spoiling the pleasure of using them.
You'll notice that the charging case plugs in via USB-C, which is the standard of choice these days, and there's also wireless charging.
I'm surprised about the sound quality, in a good way. Even without dedicated noise cancellation tech and just the passive noise-cancelling, having a good seal, if done correctly, works wonders to keep the noise out and delivers on sound experience. SoundsGood includes multiple ear tips to adjust the fit.
Overall the sounds are on point. You can feel the bass coursing through your body when listening to those epic EDM tracks. If you prefer vocals, you may notice that the midrange and highs hit ranges that will be sending shivers that aren't often felt all over your body. The Ultimate V6 sound is rich, balanced, and powerful.
While pushing the limits of the Ultimate V6 capacity, the sounds don't distort or screech, which is a welcome sign of relief from cheaper brands. The variety in genres, styles and personal preferences will impact each of your experiences.
During my review time with the SoundsGood Ultimate V6, I've had a hard time killing them off. With a generous 7-hours of playback time and 20-hours worth of battery life with the charging case, you'll notice that they are always fully charged. I don't listen to music for 8-hours straight, and I assume much is also true for consumers. You could go a week before having to charge them and the case.
With a price tag of $99, I was hoping that wireless charging was an option, and it is! I'm glad to see that even below the $100, we can get most of the bells and whistles.
