I was gifted these by Anker and I don't have a need for this type of bud so I gifted them onto someone else with a better need.
Below are their own words:
very good in this category, however, they could use one size of the ear cup larger (the one with the little loop that sticks out, not the round part that goes in the ear.). On my "german/american/italian" ears a slightly larger loop would help them stay in through even the jumping or running activities.
Otherwise, they are extremely comfortable and easily wearable. So much I can compare them nicely again to my $300/pair Bose in-ear wired noise cancelling headsets.
they compare nicely with my sony (high-quality) wired ear buds. And compared to my $300 in ear bose noise cancelling, they compete, obviously without the full noise cancelling and deep bass end (bose is very well known for)
setup (and interface)
very simple and straight-forward setup. However a more simplified (and american written) instruction book(s) could prove more useful. (And in slightly larger print please; ...as I am one that loves small print!)
Now pulling them out of their charging case proves challenging at times. Once I get the first out, the second is simple, but that first one, especially if my finger is not TOTALLY dry and clean, is a challenge. And I am fearful to flip them (the entire case) over and shake as both coming out as once I am afraid to have one get away from me.
Love the fact that the moment they come out of the case, they turn on and connect to my device (Android 8.0 w/ LBE 5 enabled Sony Xperia phone, in my case). So simple I don't have to think about it or do anything!
Still curious what happens when the battery starts to run low as due to the case, I do not believe i have come across this situation yet.
overall (& package)
- The case is nice to the feel and great size for handling.
- The charging indicators are a great added touch and convenience.
- Sometimes I forget I am even wearing them!
A great alternative to traditional ear buds! And the add'l features of wireless, small form factor and good sound quality competes with some of the top end earbuds out there now!
For me, these are replacing a pair of Jabra SPORT+ headphones for the gym, biking (with sound isolation off!) and general around the house tasks outside!
