Gaming Test

Being gaming earbuds, there's a lot to expect from these buds and we feel that the buds have lived up to the expectations. With a 35 ms low latency, and dedicated gaming mode - Rage mode, we get an amazing gaming experience. We tried a live BGMI game test and we can say that the volume, in-audio experience, and stereo separation are amazing. You can easily identify if the enemy is coming from left or right, and we can say it is one of the best gaming earbuds under 1000.

Music Experience

Hoppup Predator Earbuds come with 13 mm dynamic drivers with SBC codec support and no AAC codec. The volume in the earbuds is pretty loud, and even at 100% volume, you will not feel any distortions. And about the sound leakage, on increasing the volume above 70% you can feel slight noise leakage issues. The trebles, vocals, and instrument separation in the earbuds are well-balanced, and provide an amazing sound output especially if you are someone who loves acoustic music.

The bass of the earbuds is pretty decent and has boosted bass experience with depth in it, but the extra powerful boosted bass is found missing in it.
