Angry Audio Gnar True Wireless Headphones Review
6.9Overall Grade

Evil Sound has made a whole range of true wireless headphones over the past few years, and now it's back with another pair. Gnar's new evil audio true wireless earphones are designed to provide acceptable sound quality at a low price - and as such, they come in at just $59,99.

But evil audio cut a lot of corners to make headphones so cheap? We put them to the test to find out.


The first thing you'll notice about the headphones is their design, and they don't look bad - but the overall design of the headphones in the case doesn't seem to be all that functional. That's because it doesn't have a lid - the earbuds are held in place with magnets, and that's about it. Now, until we run into a situation where the headphones fell out of place in a bag, we didn't like the possibility of what was happening.

Wicked Audio Gnar Design

Besides, the design is good. The headphones are black, as it happens, except for the white brand highlights. On the back of the case, charging, there is a microUSB connector - it's a little disappointing to see in a world with USB-C.

On each earbud, you get one button that can be used to control playback and volume. The button isn't the best - pressing the button means pushing the sticks into your ears, which can be a little painful.

In the box, in addition to the charging case and the headphones themselves, you will receive a microUSB charging cable and two additional pairs of eartips. It's a fine selection of accessories, but not groundbreaking by any means.

The earphones are thankfully relatively small and as such they are not overly uncomfortable. Of course, discomfort is introduced when no buttons have to be pressed, but during use they fit perfectly normally.

Headphones aren't necessarily the best thing about staying in your ears, and as such, we don't recommend buying these for sports use.


So how is the sound in the headphones? Good, not bad, but not great.

The bass in the headphones is good, but we would like to see the bass extend a little deeper than it is now. That said, the kick of the drums and bass were generally able to make their way through the mix with no problems.

Wicked Audio Gnar Back

The economy-class headphones are pretty well tuned, with a warm low-mid response, and high enough mids to help vocals and nicely guitars cut through the mix.

The high end is similar to the bass - good, but not surprising. Again, a higher-end response would be nice, especially when it comes to high-end extensions. However, in this price range, it's a little hard to complain.


Wicked Audio Gnar true wireless headphones connect to a listening device via Bluetooth 5.0, however we found that they did have some connectivity issues at times. Sometimes the headphones would skip when playing audio, while they often took a while to connect to each other. Another issue, we found that the earbuds do not disconnect from the device when they are placed in the charging case - you have to disconnect them manually.

Battery life on the headphones is four hours on a single charge, which is a bit dim. In the case of charging, you will have three more charges, bringing the total time to 16 hours.



Wicked Audio Gnar True Wireless Headphones is a bit of a mixed bag. The headphones don't sound bad and the design is good, but they let things down like lackluster batteries, connection problems, and so on.

Given these issues, headphones are not really the best thing you can do in your price range. If you're looking for the perfect pair of wireless earbuds in the under $60 price range, we recommend checking out the JLab Audio JBuds Series.
