Build Quality/Aesthetics/Fit/Comfort

OneOdio OpenRock PRO T1 is an IPX5 Water Resistant Earbud, which does not make contact with your ears. They basically sit above the ear with a soft plastic that helps them sit. The earbud then goes in the front of your ears, but no actual contact with the ear canal is made. This means that you can expect good comfort, but no passive noise isolation. 

The sound is provided by large 16.2mm dynamic drivers, and we have a 19 hours of promised battery life on a single charge, which can be rounded down to 12 if you listen loud. The case carries almost 3 extra charges. The microphones in OpenRock PRO are of a good quality, and they can offer 1 hour of usage from just 5 minutes of the earbuds charging in the case. 

The Speaker has a SPL of 109.4 dB, and this time we do have aptX, besides the SBC and AAC codecs. OpenRock promises a TubeBass LISO Audio Algorithm, although it is not quite clear what that means or what it does. The earbuds are lightweight at 13 grams, the case opens in half like an egg, and the Earbuds are well protected during transport. 

The Bluetooth connection is strong, I never lost the signal during my usage. The phone call quality is great, you can hear the person on the other end clearly, and they will hear you clearly. The advantage here is that if you need to wear something for long periods of time for phone calls, OpenRock PRO T1 does not have contact with your ear canal and has no fatigue. 


Sound Quality

Overall Signature – OpenRock PRO sounds clean, with a natural midrange, but with a strong bass roll-off, strong treble roll-off, and with most of the audible sound being in the midrange. There is no presence in the low-end below about 80 Hz, which creates a mid centric, bright sound. The detail and resolution is fairly high considering the price point, but as there is next to no bass, the sound lacks impact and punch. 

Bass – All the bass which can be heard from OpenRock PRO T1 is in the form of midrange warmth, as there is no audible bass below 80 Hz, and even there, it starts to take shape getting into actual presenting a bit of upper bass by 120-150 Hz, so even with dubstep and electronic music, the bass will be strongly rolled off. 

Midrange – OpenRock PRO T1 creates a natural, clean and fairly detailed midrange, with natural texture, a good sense of dynamics and clean presentation for both male and female voices. There’s a good feeling of soundstage and space in music, although instrument separation is not strong, and instruments scatter a bit all over the place. Although the IEMs do try to push a warmer midrange, the upper midrange is louder than the lower midrange, which makes the sound kind of bright. 

Volume Control – You can expect the sound to change character depending on the volume, sounding fuller and warmer at low volumes, and becoming sharper and brighter with a strong bass roll-off at higher volumes. 

Treble – The top end is clean, bright and sharp up to about 7kHz, which could be considered upper midrange and low-treble. Above 8 kHz, it starts to roll off sharply, with most treble extending up to 10kHz, after which there is no more treble audible. 


Value and Conclusion

For most people, the sound of OpenRock PRO T1 would be mid centric, and the value is not very exciting, since the Earbuds have a strong bass rolloff, and a strong treble rolloff, but for taking phone calls, and for having something that has zero wearing fatigue, the OpenRock PRO T1 is a great choice. 

At the end of the day, there is a good product for everyone, including those who need comfort above sonic performance, and while OpenRock PRO T1 sounds good in the mids, if you need a good headset for taking phone calls, or if you need a no-contact earbud, the T1 will be a great option for you.
