The pTron brand tries to provide good quality wireless earphones in a minimum price range. They got some nice TWS earbuds that don’t even cross the Rs 1000 mark.
pTron Bassbuds Jets and Pro are some of them that I’m going to compare here as they are priced the same so it can be a bit hard to choose.
This pTron Bassbuds Jets vs pTron Bassbuds Pro ultimate comparison article will go deep into each earphone and include all the things you need to choose the right one for you.
So, let’s dive in.
pTron Bassbuds Jets
pTron Bassbuds Pro
Design & Build Quality
Both pTron Bassbuds Jets and Pro are made ergonomically. The earbuds only weigh around 4-5 grams. Bassbuds Jets has an angled earbud design and Pro has an in-ear design.
Based on my personal experience, there’s no huge difference in terms of comfort. Using them for a couple of hours straight I barely felt any discomfort or irritation.
When it comes to the build or material quality then, I liked the build quality of Bassbuds Pro for the finishing of earbuds and charging case.
The Bassbuds Jets has a bit cheap feeling because of the glossy plastic finish.
pTron Bassbuds Jets comes in 5 colours and Bassbuds Pro has 4 colours. The Pro edition has its branding on the flat area but not on the Jets edition.
To conclude, in terms of comfort both are awesome. When it comes to looks and build quality then Bassbuds Pro is better.
Bass & Sound Quality
Both have the same 20-20kHz frequency range and 32 ohms impedance. The sound quality Bassbuds Jets & Pro is providing for such a low price is remarkable.
I won’t say these two can equally compete with earbuds like BoAt Airdopes 441 or similar TWS earbuds. But good enough under the Rs 1000 range.
I wish the sound was a bit louder. Bassbuds Jets & Pro have 96dB & 95dB SPL (Sound Pressure Level) which indicates the loudness.
The standard level you should consider is at least 98dB-100dB. As they are below that range, you have to higher the volume than the normal volume range (60%).
Bassbuds Jets has 10mm bass drivers. Pretty normal for earbuds. The 10mm drivers are good enough if you use proper ear caps.
Bassbuds Pro on the other hand has 8mm drivers. So, normally the bass is low but mid and high are good. Not recommended if you are looking for earbuds with deep bass.
Overall, the sound quality is pretty satisfying for the price range. Both sound very identical but Bassbuds Jets got deeper bass. Just don’t expect too much thumping bass experience or crispy vocals.
Battery Life & Charging Time
Both the earbuds (50mAh) and charging case (400mAh) of Bassbuds Jets lasts longer than Bassbuds Pro (40mAh/300mAh).
The earbuds and charging case of Bassbuds Jets & Pro last around 5 hours & 4 hours and 15 hours and 12 hours.
Both take around 1.5-2 hours to get fully charged. Bassbuds Pro gets fully charged a bit faster.
One thing I really liked about Bassbuds Pro is the USB-C charging. Faster charging speed and less hassle than micro-USB of Bassbuds Jets.
Controls & Functions
Bassbuds Jets and Pro have touch sensors with similar features. The sensors are very responsive.
- One tap for play/pause
- Double tap for the next track
- Triple tap for the previous track
- Tap & hold to activate voice assistant
For volume control, you need to use your phone.
Both charging cases are well built, lightweight, and compact enough to fit on your palm.
The good thing is there’s a display or battery percentage inside both charging cases. The lids have a magnetic lock and are earbuds.
As usually the charging port is located at the back.
Bluetooth Version: Bassbuds Jets has Bluetooth 5.0 and Pro has 5.1 with a 10m range.
Water-Resistance: Both are IPX4 rated. Good enough to resist mild rain and sweat during running or workout sessions.
Call/Mic Quality: The earbuds have an in-built mic. The mics are average in my opinion. Not so reliable for dedicated calling but will do the work for casual purposes.
Noise Cancellation: Neither has ANC (Active Noise Cancellation). But both are able to seal your ears well enough to resist normal home and environmental noises.
Latency: Both claims the earbuds have low latency. In my experience, no problem during video streaming but a frequent lag is noticeable during gaming.
Accessories: USB-C/Micro-USB cable for charging, charging case, ear caps of different sizes, and all the required papers like the manual, warranty card, etc are included.
Users’ Report, Pros & Cons
pTron Bassbuds Jets
The sound quality, bass, and battery backup based on the price are satisfying enough for a large number of customers.
There are a few issues I noticed the most are unstable Bluetooth connectivity and average/poor material quality.
pTron Bassbuds Pro
According to users, it’s a value-for-money TWS earphone for any go-to purposes like using during gym, listening to podcasts or music, or watching web series.
The sound quality is good, the bass is not up to the mark as I mentioned it has 8mm drivers. This also has some complaints about the mic quality & mediocre battery life.
Other than those things customers recommend it if you need budget good-looking TWS earbuds under Rs 1000.
4 Reasons To Choose pTron Bassbuds Jets
2mm bigger drivers: The 10mm drivers produce deeper bass than 8mm drivers.
Longer life: Not only do the earbuds last 1 hour longer but the charging case got a 100mAh bigger battery that gives additional 3-4 hours (approx) of backup.
Lower latency: Though I won’t recommend these for gaming that much but in case you want then I experience lower latency with this Jets edition.
Cost-effective: You will miss out on the matte look, build quality & USB-C port of the Pro edition but this Jets got the better sound quality that matters the most at the price.
pTron is not the best budget TWS earbuds out there. But the experience and features you will get are good enough if you are just a casual user. Give them a try. You won’t be disappointed.
