SOUNDPEATS Opera05, the newest high end TWS by SoundPeats and the bigger brother of the Opera03.

The SoundPeats Opera05 is a triple driver hybrid earphone that carries inside 2 balanced armature drivers and a large 12mm dynamic driver (SoundPeats mistakenly promotes the Opera05 a dual driver earphone but it is actually a triple driver earphone).

Additional features that add up to rank as part of their high tier products include a Hi-Res Audio certification, touch controls, a frequency response of 20Hz-40.000Hz, IPX4 waterproof rating, LDAC Bluetooth 5.3 codecs (reaching 990kbps or around 4 times the kbps of AAC codecs).

Bass & Sub Bass

Bass offers an overall fun and punchy response that will cover any modern genre without falling short of the pumping and exciting effect added by lower frequencies.

Nonetheless, the earphone shows a stronger response over mid and upper bass than the extension over their lowest end on sub-bass ranges.

Overall, the bass of the Opera05 can be rated as fairly balanced with a punchy and fun profile.

Mids & Vocals

The SoundPeats Opera05 show a pleasing and very well-tuned midrange.

Lower mids and male vocals are able to sound warm and cozy but preserving a good separation.

Moreover, these low midranges do not exhibit any significant congestion nor strong bass bleeding.

The upper mids present a crisp and clear response with alive female vocals and just a bit of harshy peaks that fall within tolerable.



Highs & Treble

The slightly hot higher mids is carried over the lower highs and treble but translating into a bright and clean response on these ranges.

On the other, the Opera05 will probably not win against high-profile headphones on the micro-detail resolving department.

Also, the added brightness and airy tuning of these SoundPeats TWS does introduce fatiguing peaks such as sibilance and piercing spikes.

Sound Isolation

Right out of the box, the passive isolation was within average but this model includes also 2 active modes; an Active Noise Cancelling mode and a Passthrough mode.

We noticed that the ANC mode showed a fair increment in cancellation but fell short in comparison to the performance of industry-leading ANC headphones.

Nonetheless, the Passthrough mode surprised the team with a way better response than the ANC mode, where environmental noises and awareness was clearly improved without adding weird noises.

The Opera05 has a rounded form factor that fits snuggly but comfortable in the ears, ensuring a tight but non fatiguing placement in the ears.

On the other hand, it is fair to note that the earpieces are quite large in comparison to many other modern TWS. This results in a noticeably more protruding fit and visibility.

Functions such as a dedicated single tap for volume + and volume – is a great addition in the usability and comfort on everyday use.



Response to Equalization

The SoundPeats Opera05 exhibited a very responsive EQ retuning potential through our custom profiled equalization with clear improvement over the sub bass extension and smoothing of the hot peaks seen throughout our testing and review.

This model can benefit from the dedicated SoundPeats app to access EQ presets, a 7-band EQ for custom equalization and further features such as battery control, etc. – yet, we find important to highlight that the app forces users to register to use it, which is unfortunate to see this.
