Are QCY headphones good? I’ve been a fan of the QCY brand of earbuds ever since discovering them back in 2018. I used to rely on good old’ JBL Sprint for wireless listening. But after losing a couple, and even breaking one. I decided that I need to find an affordable earbud alternative that still produces quality sounds without breaking the bank.
Plot Twist: QCY T6 are cheap yet they’re even better than most pricier brands
Today I’ll be sharing with you my review of QCY T6, their TWS wireless sports earbuds that promises hours of listening, fast charging, and water-resistant, and comes with a rubber sports design to avoid falling. Perfect for high-intensity workouts, running, jogging, dancing, swimming, or cycling.
But it’s not perfect. After a couple of months of usage (and 1 mild drop), I discovered an annoying flaw.

QCY T6 Review
Sleek built and lightweight. That’s how I like my wireless buds to look and feel like. Even with my most intense and complex workouts, it doesn’t fall off my ears. Definitely perfect for the athletic type like me!
Yep! This lasts a max of 5-6 hours on me straight. I usually listen to Spotify during work. Ambient, relaxing, binaural beats.
It has a slight issue with its charging port aka the container. After a few weeks of use, it gets loose. One time I thought it was fully charged, only to have 10% left. Make sure both lights are RED and not blinking to know that it’s charging.
The QCY T6 control feels a bit, weird. It doesn’t have any buttons. You have to tap the bud accordingly to get the function you want. Until now I don’t get it so I manually adjust the volume on my device, rather than directly on the earphone. Which is a minor nuisance I can forgive?
I’m no audiophile, but I know how cheap earphones sound like and this ain’t it. Crisp, clear, and solid treble & bass. It also doesn’t have any lag when watching movies or playing games.
Calls and Connectivity
I can easily transition from watching Netflix to Zoom meetings because of its quick connectivity + a built-in mic that offers clear speaking sound. There are times I had to reset my Bluetooth connections because it automatically prioritizes connecting to my phone than my computer.
Definitely my multifunctional must-have for working from home to working out from home. It’s so cheap too for just around 1 thousand pesos for good quality TWS. Hope this lasts as long as my T2C that’s almost more than a year old but still working like new
