Good work OP
What a horrible name. Apart from that might give them a go!

I have these, had good reviews very happy with them, sound better with flac (lossless audio).

Exactly! Thought it's some kind of disease!
Had this for a day but send them back. Nothing special really. They sounds very similar to Jabra Elite 65T. I Prefer Bose Sounds sport Free, sounds much better in my opinion. Maybe look bulky but they are superb

Or these haha yes you are right, so much choice with these now.
I usually have Shure in ears - SE215, SE315 and was using the BT1 bluetooth cable for a while, it was ok pretty good but then developed a fault. I got a replacement cable which I haven't used yet, will probably sell.
It didn't have APTX either. They took out a new BT2 cable but it's £135 without any buds.
I've been looking at these for a while now, plenty of 5/5 reviews from the "experts" but a lot of the user reviews mention connectivity issues, either when walking past buildings with wifi networks or putting your phone in your trouser pocket. If that seems unlikely, I have both those issues with the well reviewed Sony WX-1000s I've already got :/

Yeah, once you filter out the one star reviews that come from people who don't understand what they've bought or how to use it
Have a pair and can recommend. Battery life and sound quality are great, but like others have commented, you do sometimes get connectivity issues; I noticed especially wandering around London last week.

Personally don't think they are bad at all at it; just not perfect. I''m not convinced there are any tiny in-ear true wireless headphones that work perfectly - I reckon a full size set of headphones are the only choice there. Even then bluetooth is not going to give you what a wire will right now.
Great sound quality, good battery life but can't be used for phone calls. Not managed a single successful call, people on the other end can never hear me. I'm using these as gym/exercise buds and on public transport and my old earpods for the rest of the time. As the user above says good but imperfect buds

That was partly my thinking.
There is a lot of variables at play, such as the device they are connecting it with, Bluetooth codec used etc.
So it is hard to account for all that in a review.
There is also a firmware update that can be applied here:

Who knows, they may release more over time and I read they may consider an app to update etc, if any updates are worthwhile.
Maybe time will tell.

I am seriously tempted; the sound on my Sony's is much better than my Anker Liberty Lites (glad I only paid £40 for them) but the connection on the Ankers is absolutely rock solid ALL the time, while the Sonys are rubbish, even on the latest firmware...
Sounds like myeloma

I have managed calls without problems and people didn't even know I was using hands free in some cases. The only time I had to repeat myself was when I was only wearing one ear and was in a stairway with a lot of echo.
I have used mine now for a couple of days.
So far so good. Superb sound for what they are.
The foam tips seem to be work best for me.
A few odd cut outs here and there when out and about, nothing major and does not last for long.
I think it is just typical of Bluetooth technology, interference, environment and the devices in connection.
I haven't had them cut out at all when used in doors yet.
The size of the charging case and buds are pretty incredible, as is the battery life.

I should mention a wee tip also.
These earbuds can be connected separately to any device, meaning the left and right can either be connected but not both, since they connect to each other as a slave.
Anyway be sure to connect the one to the side that is closest to your device, e.g. if your phone is in your right pocket, connect the right one.
I never really thought much about this before and had the left one connected, but since changing it i have had no drop out connections, so it must improve things slightly.

Just to let you all know, there is a 2nd firmware update released V6.6:

Just ordered a pair(109.95) to use mainly with chromebook, films and music. I hope they work ok, guess I should have asked first on here. Voted hot.
