Thoughts and Conclusion

We’re really like the SOUNDPEATS Opera05 and find them to be a more premium experience than expected from the brand. Its products tend to be a solid value proposition and cater in the lower price range but we think this is a big step in the right direction.

The earbuds look sharp with their colors and design but they do stick out from the ear a bit more than we’d like. That aside, they’re very comfortable and do not lead to ear fatigue, even at longer listening sessions.

Thanks to support for some of the most modern audio codecs and the in-app equalizer settings audio is fantastic. Music, podcasts, books, and phone calls sound terrific.

We also like the longer battery life and water resistance. These are a good option for customers who lean into music a bit more and appreciate the finer nuances.

Where to Buy

You can learn more about the SOUNDPEATS Opera05 earbuds at Kickstarter. They are expected to ship later this spring, tentatively in April 2023. Pricing figures to be around $80 based on what we can tell.
