Purple PEB 004 Review
Purple PEB 004 has a compact case and it is made out of plastic. The case gets a glossy treatment which gives it a premium look. The Purple logo is etched right in the middle and there’s a LED indicator right on top of the logo.
The case is easy to carry and pocketable due to its compact nature. Likewise, the buds are also small with a small stem. The buds also get a glossy finish like the case.
During my time with these buds, I did not have any problem with the fit of the earbuds. It had a very good fit for my ear size.
Overall, the build quality of the PEB 004 is quite good for the price.

Connection & Controls
The Purple PEB-004 uses Bluetooth 5.3 for Bluetooth connection. The connection is very stable and I did not notice any drops.
I did not notice any flaws in the connection. However, you can only connect the buds to a single device at a time. So, there’s no multipoint support. For codecs, it uses SBC and AAC.
Likewise, it has a quick detection feature that lets the bud automatically connect to the paired device when the case is opened. The latency on these buds is quite low. You will notice a slight delay when playing games but there’s no delay when watching videos.
For controls, it uses capacitive touch control that is quite responsive. You can play/pause with a single tap, skip/backward with a triple tap, and control volume with a double tap. You can also activate the voice assistant with a long press.
Sound & Mic
Like most earbuds, the Purple PEB 004 also employs a bass-heavy sound. So, most of the general consumers will like the sound signature of these buds. However, it’s a different story if you are a sound enthusiast.
If you listen to EDM, Trap, and Rap songs, the sound profile will feel decent for the price. In the song Creepin by Metro ft Weeknd, the bass line on the 2nd chorus hits pretty well. However, the bass is not tight. So, you will feel ear fatigue if you keep listening to songs on max volume.
The mid is not bright enough and you will feel this when you listen to acoustic heavy songs. In the song Ranga by Rockheads, the guitar strums in the first verse should sound warm and bright. But, it feels underwhelming on these buds which takes away the novelty of the song. Similarly, the highs sound really soft as well. If you listen to As it Was by Harry Styles, the Hi-Hats build-up on the 2nd line of the 2nd chorus (“You Know it’s not the same as it was, as it was”) feels flat.
In terms of mics, each bud has two mics. The call quality is pretty good and the receiver was easily able to hear our voice. Similarly, it does a decent job of reducing environmental noise in a sparsely crowded area.
Even though the buds and case are compact, the PEB-004 boasts a good battery life. The buds provide 7 hours of battery life at once and with the case, it can provide 24 hours of total playback.
In the case of charging, the buds take 1 hour and the case takes 1.5 hours to go from 0 to 100%.
Should You Buy the Purple PEB-004?
Purple PEB-004 is a decent TWS for the price. The build quality, connectivity, and touch control are good. The bass-heavy sound profile will please normal consumers as well.
All around, the Purple PEB-004 is a decent TWS.
