The name Oddict may not be familiar to too many people, but there is a chance you may have heard of Phiaton, a company that makes headphones and earbuds. Both brands are owned by Cresyn, a company making audio products since 1959. Oddict has quite a pedigree, if not much brand recognition.

The latest product to come from Oddict is the Twig Pro true wireless earbuds. These stylish Bluetooth earbuds come in a sleek circular case and the most noteworthy thing about the Twig Pro is they are the first pair of earbuds I’ve seen with support for Snapdragon sound. This new Bluetooth audio platform is being rolled out by the tech giant Qualcomm.

Snapdragon Sound can deliver high-quality audio using Qualcomm’s aptX Adaptive audio codec. This clever tech can stream music wirelessly over Bluetooth at 16-bit/44.1kHz lossless quality, which is on par with the sound quality you can get from a CD.

You will need a smartphone that supports the standard to get the most out of Snapdragon Sound. If you’re an iPhone user, you’re out of luck as Apple only supports the AAC audio codec, which, although excellent, is not quite up to the same standard as aptX Adaptive.

Qualcomm also claims that Snapdragon Sound will eventually support even higher resolution audio files using a clever blend of Bluetooth and Wi-Fi to stream higher quality. In practice, Snapdragon Sound dynamically adapts the rate at which it transmits depending on how crowded the radio spectrum is.

The Twig Pro earbuds are stylish with their stick-style and silicone ear tips, providing a tight acoustic seal necessary to get a solid bass response. The earbuds stow away in a round plastic case which defeated me for a while. I couldn’t work out how to open it, but I got there in the end. The case has a USB-C port for recharging its battery. Curiously, there’s no facility for wireless charging. A full charge provides around five hours of playing time and two more full charges are held in the storage case.

Inside each earpiece is a large 12mm dynamic driver that can shift enough air to produce wonderfully deep bass. Each earpiece also has a discreet clickable button that can pause music, skip tracks, take calls and cycle through the ANC function to eliminate unwanted noise. The ANC works best with continuous sounds like the roar of an aircraft’s engine or road noise when riding in a car.

The earbuds are comfortable, but it’s worth spending time to fit the correct ear tip size for the user’s ears. Pairing with a smartphone is quick and easy, only needing to be done once. There’s an IPX4 rating on the earbuds, enough to shrug off a bit of drizzle or a splash of water but certainly not fully waterproof.

The Twig Pro earbuds have a lively sound with a solid bass response and a nicely positioned mid-range that’s sufficiently forward to provide a firm foundation for all genres of music. The treble is smooth and detailed without tiring the listener’s ears. The companion Oddict smartphone app is available for iOS and Android devices. I had a few problems getting the app to connect with the earbuds, but after a reset and a repair, I managed to get things working.


The app can turn the ANC function on and off and has other features, such as an equalizer. The amount of noise the ANC filters out is limited and when turned on, it impacts the sound by masking some of the finer details of the music. On balance, I preferred the ANC turned off because the soundstage feels more focused without it. Your ears may vary, but if you are looking for effective earbuds with ANC, there are better models, such as the excellent Technics AZ60.

The microphones built into the Twig Pro are of acceptable quality and these earbuds function well for phone calls or when taking part if video meetings over Zoom or Teams. Not everyone enjoys using earbuds in this way and I would say the Twig Pro struggle a little in windy conditions, so bear that in mind if you make a lot of phone calls in the open air.

Verdict: The Oddict Twig Pro true wireless earbuds look great and stylish. The sound quality is pretty good and if you have a phone that supports the Snapdragon Sound platform, you’ll get an even better sound with CD-quality audio. The ANC function on the Twig Pro is acceptable but not class-beating. The same goes for the battery life, but at five hours, it’s probably enough for most people unless you’re planning on using these earbuds for a transatlantic flight. The Twig Pro will fit the bill if you’re looking for a pair of Snapdragon Sound earbuds to use with a compatible smartphone. If you can get the Twig Pro on special offer, they are worth a closer look

Pricing & Availability: The Oddict Twig Pro true wireless earbuds are available now and cost $149 from Amazon although the Oddict website currently has the Twig Pro on offer at a bargain price of $89.99.
