Tribit QuietPlus 72 Review

Tribit QuietPlus 72 Review

Tribit unveiled a new active noise canceling headset: Tribit QuietPlus 72. Not to be confused with its big brother, the Tribit QuietPlus and which we discovered together in a previous article: Tribit QuietPlus

This version is less expensive and still looks like a separate model because the design is different too. Here are its characteristics:

  • Adjustable hoop
  • Active noise reduction (ANC) technology
  • Incorporates a microphone for making phone calls
  • Bluetooth 5.0 connection
  • Connections: USB-C and 3.5 mm Jack
  • Two 40mm drivers
  • Charging time: 3 hours maximum
  • Battery life: up to 30 hours (without ANC)

This new model is close to the previous one, but with certain differences, of course. The design is different, and so is the Active Noise Reduction (ANC) feature. It is less efficient on the Tribit QuietPlus 72 than on the Tribit QuietPlus. This is one of the reasons the QuietPlus 72 is cheaper. On the QuietPlus 72 model, the ANC can attenuate noise by 30 dB.

The Tribit QuietPlus headphones are relativelity cheap, while the Tribit QuietPlus 72 headphones are even cheaper. Offering active noise reduction at this price is a nice challenge that Tribit is trying to meet.

Package and design

The usual formula for packaging: orange and white, with a photo of the product on the front and its name. We find, on the side and the back of the box, some information about the helmet. The Tribit QuietPlus 72 headphones are supplied with a hard carrying case, a USB-C cable, and a 3.5mm jack cable. In addition, a user manual is also included.

This headset is of the on-ear type (it encompasses the ears), but the ear cups fold inwards to put the headset in the carrying case. The helmet is entirely matt black with some appreciable chrome accents: on the sides of the central part of the arch and the contour of the ear cups. In terms of design, I find these headphones prettier than the QuietPlus model.

The headset incorporates several buttons: on the left ear cup, there is the button to activate or deactivate the ANC, while on the right one, there are the buttons to turn on / off the headset, manage the volume and manage the play (play/pause, next track, previous track).
On the other hand, I find that the inscriptions next to the buttons are too visible, too big. There is also the mention “Tribit” in black and in relief on the ear cups: rather pretty. It’s the buttons that bother me about the appearance of the headphones. Otherwise, I find it more successful than the other QuietPlus model.

At the level of the ear cushions, neither too firm nor too flexible, they recover their shape well after use. The central part of the arch also has a silicone part that creates a cushion: a good point for comfort. I have no doubts about the strength of this helmet.

The Tribit QuietPlus 72 in use

Now let’s move on to the most important: the use of headphones and the sound reproduction with its two 40 mm speakers. Regarding comfort, the helmet fits well on the head thanks to the adjustable headband, and it is comfortable even after several hours of use. In addition, the pad on the headband provides additional comfort.

For the sound rendering, I would say that the bass is good. On the other hand, there is a distortion in the treble, which is quite annoying if you listen to music for several hours. Depending on the music, it is felt more or less, and this defect in the sound rendering is unpleasant!

The noise reduction is effective and will be appreciated in public transport or during a sport session. However, I still noticed a flaw in the ANC with phone calls: it tends to reduce noise and voice at times, it must have trouble separating the two signals.

Regarding the 30 hours autonomy announced by Tribit, it is very real. Still, it will be necessary to divide by two the autonomy with the ANC activated, or if the volume is at the maximum, I was able to verify it during my test.

Finally, I would say that the helmet is comfortable and it does not hurt your head even after several hours of use. For the sound reproduction, it’s good for the bass, but a pity that the mediocre treble disturbs the overall balance. Unfortunately, as there is no sound equalizer, it is not possible to limit this defect’s effects through the settings.

Conclusion

If you are looking for a wireless headset with active noise cancellation without costing you an arm and a leg, this Tribit headset is a good opportunity to equip yourself. As long as you are not too demanding on the sound quality: as I said, it is not perfect on the treble, and you can hear it. If you are looking for a customizable headset, especially with an equalizer, this is not the right model because it does not offer one. However, the sound quality is correct. Too bad it could be improved in terms of treble, but otherwise, the bass is good. There is a nice depth.

This headset presents a good quality/price ratio because the design is satisfactory, it integrates Bluetooth 5.0, ANC, good battery life, and can also be used wired. I prefer the sound quality of the Tribit QuietPlus and the design and comfort of this Tribit QuietPlus 72 model.
