Review – xFryo Aria true wireless earbuds, “come on down!!”. You are the next contestant in the battle to determine which are the best earbuds for me. Let’s spin the Test and Review wheel and see what we land on!!

What is it?

The xFryo Aria Bluetooth Wireless Earbuds are small and lightweight and are designed for listening to music and conducting phone calls. As with most earbuds, they should be compatible with most Bluetooth equipped mobile devices.

The charging case has the usual design of charging slots for the earbuds, which stay in place magnetically. This case has an on/off switch inside that allows you to control the earbuds charging. There are also 4 blue LEDs that indicate the level of charge.

After I fully charged the earbuds and I took them out of the charging case, they automatically powered on and synced with each other. They immediately showed up in the Bluetooth device list on my smartphone. Pairing was quick and easy. The specifications for these earbuds boast a long charge time, and that holds true when compared to other earbuds that I have tested. Each full charge of the earbuds lasts a bit longer than 8 hours and the charging case provides approximately 4 charges for a total of approximately 32 plus hours. This is quite impressive.

The next question that I wanted to answer was about their waterproof capabilities. This is also a big part of their promotion, and I was willing to try them and confirm for sure. As you can see below, I tried them in a nice cognac glass of water, and I can confirm that after leaving them in the water for about 10 minutes, I was able to take them out and put them right into my ears and listen to music with no issues.xFryo Aria 10
As I do with all earbud testing, I listen to several genres including Contemporary Jazz, Easy Listening, The Classics, Gospel, etc., and like the previous model of xFryo earbuds that I tested, I enjoyed the sound across all of the genres. The sound is quite good and well balanced for the lows, mids, and highs. There was also no real discernable distortion in any frequency range, and like the previous model, there is a built-in volume limiter to add to the quality of the listening experience.

However, unlike the previous model, (xFryo S2), when I tested these on phone call functions the experience was not good. I could hear the other party but they said that the sound from me was muffled and very unclear. I had to raise my voice quite a bit for them to hear. It is important to note that these earbuds have a somewhat square shape and while they fit securely in my ears, they become very uncomfortable after about 20 minutes and I have to take them out for a while before using them again. I am not sure if in this case if the shape and fit have anything to do with the call quality issue.

What I like

  • The build quality
  • The sound reproduction
  • The amazing charge retention
  • The waterproof feature

What can be improved

  • For me, the shape so that it contours more to the curvature of ears and is, therefore, more comfortable

Final thoughts

These xFryo earbuds fit securely in my ears and work well when exercising. They also sound quite good, but because of the somewhat square design they hurt my ears, and after about 20 minutes I have to take them out. This issue makes it hard for me to fully recommend them because the shape of our ears is another individual characteristic and others may not have this issue. They hold an amazing charge and are definitely waterproof. Since I have personal issues with this model of earbuds, and since I do not want to be unfair, I will not include them in the overall ranking with the others in my contest.

  2. Very disappointing after a 7 months delay from indigogo!!! The outside sound heavily leaking into the ear bud! Definitley not worth the price! The earbud always charge for 90% instead of 100%, and the battery life only 4hrs instead of 8hrs they mentioned about! Pls do not buy these so call earbuds! I’m very very disappointing for this product!!!

  3. No no no! I’ve had these earbuds since Feb 2019 and they suck. Always have problem connecting to my iphone 8, sigh, I rather get the cheap ones on Amazon at least I won’t be so disappointed.

  4. Extraordinarily disappointing product.
    1. Overpriced. I can detect no sound difference from bluetooth ear buds costing a fraction of the price.
    2. Charging is difficult. Apparently the slightest dust on a contact point prevents charging. Of course, you’re not likely to know that until you power on and pair the ear buds, only to find the charge level at or less than the level that caused you to try to charge to begin with.
    3. The button flash signals–I’ve given up even trying to remember what they’re all for.
    4. The large switch pad on each bud means you have to be careful when you put the buds in, or try to adjust their fit. If you inadvertently depress the switch pad, you’ll do something you don’t want to do (increase or decrease volume, or turn off one bud, for example)..
