So I have to say out of all of the We love Testing items, this is the one I wanted most and will use most. The Neo would have simply been to test, which is why I didn't apply, not a fan of totally wireless earbuds, but I had an old pair of...I don't remember the brand, bluetooth headphones, same style as these with the thing around the neck and I have to say I missed that design. I have had the Soundcore slim/+, and Surge and they are all great, good sound quality, good battery life for what they are, but my biggest problem was the cord. If you didn't have both earbuds in the cord would always get messed up somehow, really annoying. They provide you with a little clip that is meant to clip on your shirt to stop this from happening, but I have had the click break on one and the others...well it works but sometimes needs readjusted. What I really like about this design style is that instead of trying to pack all that tech into a tiny little earbud and wire, they now can put it in the neck thing. The earbuds attach to the end of it by magnet and the audo controls should be on there as well, freeing up the cable to be the cable, and you don't have to try to find the controls that are hanging from the right earbud, on the ones I have. If these things provide anything close to the sound quality and battery life of my Vortex I'll be impressed. Long way to go until I find that out though.
