Just got these about an hour ago and I'm ready to give them a glowing review. My requirements for these earbuds are very specific so read carefully to extract out what relates to what your needs are. I got these bc I have severe ADHD and have music constantly playing in my ears allows me to concentrate and focus better. This means that the more I can wear them and the less that I have to take them out, the more effective they are for me. This means that their form factor is important. LOOKS: They need to look as unobtrusive as possible so that I don't have to take them out when I'm in meetings or if I'm talking to someone. On this score they rate pretty high. Mostly because they are earbuds without a cord. And they don't have that attention getting inch or two extension like those weird airpods have. That said, they are medium in size I would say. They are not as small as hearing aids (which are meant to be as small as possible), but they are not huge either. I don't think they are going to bother too people if I leave them in my ears when i'm talking to them. FIT: they fit a little odd. The part that actually goes in the ear canal is rather small and are not meant to be the part that keeps them in your ear. So they feel like they are loose as compared with most normal in ear headphones. They feel a little like they are going to fall out, but they are actually very secure. I've tried to shake my head vigorously and they don't budge at all. They stay in bc of their overall design and how the entire thing wedges in your ear canal. The manufacturer has obviously done a lot of research and thinking about their design to come up with a different way to get them to stay in versus how everyone else does it. SOUND: these are fantastic. They're no Bose or anything, but for just regular headphones are that not that expensive, they sound great. Way better than standard headphones that come with iPhones for example. Decent amount of clarity and base too. Not on an audiophile scale, but for standard usage, the sound quality is quite high. SIMPLICITY & CONNECTIVITY: these are tops. Probably the most simple tech device I've used in years. Most simple connectivity with my Android phone that I have seen with any bluetooth product. You don't even have to press any buttons are anything. Pull them out of their case and they automatically appear on your phone. Just hit yes on your phone to pair. Here's the beauty. I bought tow pairs bc I wanted the ability to go 24 hours with music in my ears. I was able to connect to the second set just as simply without and software issues with have the same type of headphones connected 2x to the same phone. This was an issue with my last pair of headphones. For me to carry two, I had to completely delete one pair from my phone to synch to the new one to get a second pair to work. No problem with these. RANGE: much better range than anything else I've tried. I went through two interior walls and even worked upstairs with my phone downstairs. Multiple walls in between. The only thing that I can't comment on is charging speed and battery life because I've not had them long enough yet. But so far, these are the best headphones I've ever seen (and I have literally spent thousands over the years on headphones). There are more smart design points with these but I'll just say, get them. They are amazing. And for the company that made these: bravo. Your design smarts are very apparent to me. You have must have a great team of folks to have designed at such a higher level than everyone else.
AMENDMENT 5 HOURS LATER: okay, i've been listening them for 5 hours now and I'd up to 6 stars if I could. I switched out the first set for the second set at 4 hours. Not because the batteries had died but because I wanted to see how difficult it would be to switch the headsets and have the Android bluetooth pair with my second set. Jesus these people are good at what they do. Here's how it went down. I pulled the buds out of my ears and dropped them into the case. You just have to get them close bc there is a magnet in the case that just pulls the buds into their slots and snaps them down. Cool feature. I then pulled out the second pair (reminder from above that I have had huge problems pairing earphones from the same company bc of weird interactions. With this pair, I pulled them of the case and placed them in my ears and I hear it say "right earbud paired, left earbud paired." That's it. I didn't even have to press any buttons or anything. SERIOUSLY, this is the smartest design group I have ever encountered with any phone accessory or any cell phone for that matter. Incredible work.
