Design, Build & Comfort

These Kreo Mako really match the gaming aesthetic. They come with a single purple LED light on both the charging case and earbuds. The LED is minimal and doesn’t overpower the design, which is a plus. The earbuds themselves have decent build quality, but the charging case stands out with a smooth matte finish, offering a premium touch experience at its price point.

In terms of comfort, the earbuds are lightweight and can be worn continuously for 2-3 hours without any issues. Unfortunately, there’s no mention of a waterproof rating, which could be an oversight, but they likely offer basic protection like most modern earbuds. As for user experience, the touch controls are responsive and reliable, making them easy to use.

Connectivity & Battery

Connectivity-wise, there are no problems, thanks to the latest Bluetooth 5.3 support. Pairing them with any device is a breeze. As I mentioned before, these are budget gaming earbuds. It doesn’t have dual-connectivity, ANC, fast pair or app support.

The battery backup is also good. The Kreo promises a total playback time of 40 hours. Based on my two days of testing, I would say you can get approximately 32 hours of total playback time. At 50% volume, a single earbud can last for about 4-5 hours. So, these numbers are quite good.

Microphone

Like battery backup, the microphone of Kreo Mako is also promising. It has a total of four microphones that pick up your voice clearly and naturally. It does a good job of reducing background noise, so during calls or while gaming, the person on the other end will hear you clearly. Overall, the microphone performs decently well.

Sound Quality

Talking about sound quality, the Kreo Mako comes with 13mm large drivers, and the company promises a low latency of 50 ms. Of course, you can’t compare them to wired earphones—there will be some latency—but it’s hardly noticeable and doesn’t affect gameplay.

Additionally, the Kreo Mako has dual audio modes for gaming and music. You can switch between modes with a long press on the touch controls. I was quite surprised to find that the gaming mode sounds better than the music mode. In music mode, there is more noticeable audio distortion. So, for both gaming and other entertainment, the gaming mode is actually better.

Kreo Mako sound quality

For gaming, the sound quality is good. Like other gaming TWS, Kreo Mako has a high bass response, which makes action games more enjoyable. You can easily detect footsteps, vehicle approaches, and bullet directions, making the sound quality decent for gaming.

When it comes to music and general entertainment, the sound quality is just average. The soundstage isn’t very wide, and the high bass tends to overshadow the mids, causing some audio distortion. Given the low price, you can’t expect too much, but overall, the sound quality is great for gaming and average for general use.

Worth to buy Kreo Mako?

If you want budget gaming earbuds, the Kreo Mako are definitely worth considering. They offer a cool gaming aesthetic at a reasonable price, making them a solid choice for anyone looking to get good value for their money. Overall, for the price, the Kreo Mako provides a satisfying experience, especially for gamers.
