Comfortable, great sound, but is cheap junk and stopped working during 2nd use
October 31, 2018
I have been looking for an inexpensive set of earbuds for running. I keep trying ones that are in the < $30 price point, and they all behave in a similar manner; this set was no exception.
I really wanted to love these as the sound quality is a solid A- (and I am an audio snob, although my usage during running is 95% podcasts, so I am fine with something that sounds like an AM radio IF it works). Fit was great and stayed in my ears for the duration of 1.5 runs (until I gave up on them for good).
The bad news is that these frequently had choppy audio (paired with an iPhone 7 that works great with every other Bluetooth device I have, which is over a dozen). During my 2nd run with these, after about 30 minutes they just stopped. There was still plenty of power and the LED indicator was working, but they just "unpaired" and would absolutely not repair again with my phone.
So in summary - I actually got less than what I paid for, which wasn't much in the first place. Thank goodness Amazon has a generous return policy, so I will be getting a refund. These might work fine for someone that sits still at a desk all day, but if you are active I wouldn't even give these a 2nd look.
