🎧 We are reviewing the TRN BT20, a Bluetooth adapter with the capability to turn into truly wireless nearly every earphone on the market.

The fundamental benefit of the TRN BT20 is that you can transform any of your favorite in-ear headphones with detachable cables into a sort of Alpha & Delta JAAP – even if your model has a bi-pin 0.75mm, bi-pin 0.78mm or MMCX cable connector.

The main difference of the TRN BT20 with other Bluetooth cable/adapters like the TRN BT3, KZ Bluetooth cable, KZ Bluetooth Waterproof cable is that TRN BT20 has no cables attaching each side to each other – they are truly wireless.

Construction & Build

The TRN BT20 Truly Wireless Adapter costs just a couple of dimes/bucks and the ultra-cheap price comes at a cost, construction quality and aesthetics.

The entire unit is made of plastic, with a plain and dull look with no bells nor whistles – at the end of the day this is an accessory for functionality and not for runway models.

You will not be getting the same construction quality of the Alpha and Delta JAAP but you will get many of the freedom features of the JAAP for a couple of bucks.

Connectivity

The TRN BT20 have a modern Bluetooth v5.0 which gives them fast transfer rates and low latency with mild lag and non too frequent signal drops, with brief disconnection of one side – this is a pretty normal issue with truly wireless headphones that the TRN BT20 exhibited far less often than many truly wireless headphones that we have tested to date.

Sound

Any audio signal that gets transmitted through Bluetooth from one device to another goes under a much more complex process than a direct wired connection.

This process involves elements such as audio processing, signal conversions, data transmission, Bluetooth codecs, etc. and can consequently modify the sound properties and/or quality of the original audio signal.

In the case of the TRN BT20, the device works flawlessly, being able to provide a clean and neutral audio response. This translates in non-modified sound, nor boosted nor recessed.

After measuring the frequency response curve of the TRN BT20 we could verify that the TRN BT20 does not boost nor recesses the sound on any frequency range (except above 20kHz, though an irrelevant range for 99.999% of listeners), remaining flat and pure.

In addition to this, the unit has a very strong volume output.

Comfort

The small unit fits snugly behind the ears and cannot be seen nor protrudes as the A&D JAAP. On the other hand, this makes it also sit a bit more on the back of the ears and could be a bit tight and too precise for users with bigger ears.

Still the super light weighted units, being only 6.25 gr. per side makes them weight far less than any detachable cable.
