Final thoughts
The Apollo Bold’s box has more of a premium feel when opening. You are greeted with information about its hybrid active noise canceling.

The build of the Apollo Bold is really impressive with the black and gold rings.

The Apollo Bold’s signature is fantastic thanks to the Graphene drivers. Apollo Bold has a really strong and deep bass. Mids and highs are still clearly noticeable.

Apollo Bold’s Hybrid Active Noise Cancelling has 3 modes – Noise Cancellation on, Ambient mode on and off.

The Apollo Bold’s Noise Cancellation does a really good job of cancelling out the environmental noises. With the ambient mode on, it increases the environment sound so that you are aware of your surrounding. Off is the normal mode without ANC or Ambient mode.

The touch control on the Apollo Bold is really responsive and accurate to each touch.

Apollo Bold intelligent in-ear detection which has a sensor beneath the charging contacts on both earphones. Videos or songs will pause when you take out the Apollo Bold from your ear and resume play when you put the Apollo Bold back into your ear.

Here’s how the Apollo Bold’s intelligent in-ear detection in action.


Tronsmart will be releasing an app in September 2020 which you can update the Apollo Bold via OTA, EQ sound effects switch and customize the touch control.

If you’re looking for ANC earphones and on a budget, you will definitely not be disappointed with the Tronsmart Apollo Bold.

I just bought these and they are amazing for only RM349.

There is 1 problem, how do you turn off the buds without putting them into the case? Usually i will turn off my phones bluetooth and just put the buds at the side. But the buds will be switched on the whole night! It doesnt seem to be smart enough to switch off themselves.

I have tried everything but everything doesnt seem to work.

The manual only states putting it back into the case so that it turns off itself.
