When it comes to audio quality, the Buds Z delivers clear bass and vocals, with good mids and high. Playing my playlist at a volume level of about 50% to 60% indoors was pleasant and reasonably loud. While at 70% to 80% volume level outdoors with ANC is still comfortable, I was able to enjoy listening to mostly light and easy rock songs, the Beatles collection, Chill Mix, and some relaxing classics such as Mozart.

The Buds Z passive-active noise cancellation performance is marginally greater than compared to other TWS, reducing ambient noise indoors and outdoors. Even at low volumes, a reasonable reduction in wind noise proved helpful. ENC mode works great and does not sound forced.

Battery Life
The 380mAh battery in the case and the 43mAh battery in each earbud give the Buds Z a total playtime of 16 hours on a full charge. The earbuds can be used for 4.5 hours before needing to be recharged.
