Definitely a good price, and an interesting item, but seems to have very bad battery life in use and even on standby, according to Amazon reviews

yea i seen that review hence w why i was asking anyone have them as i found some reviews are misleading

Review are all dire - i would find deal in the level u PRO ANC, far superior yes not as minimal but at least useable
If the prices for these dropped to £30 i'd consider them, probably end up on the pile with my Samsung Level Active (they were very poor but free)

Own these and can't say they are worth the 150 I paid for them but I dont mind the product at all. Comfortable, easy to use (after firmware updates) and music quality is good. Light weight and good for running. Never used the tracking features. Battery is ok. Just need to be mindful to charge before going out running. I'd purchase again if around the 70-100 quid mark so heat from me

Im in the market for a pair of completely wireless earbuds for the gym. Is there any others around this price point to concider?

How difficult is it to wire these up?

I'm currently trying these for a penny under £70 https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/aw/d/B06Y3YSFB1/ref=ya_aw_od_pi?ie=UTF8&psc=1
Battery lasts about two hours, comes with a portable rechargeable magnetic induction tube for when out n about. Sound Quality is damm good, these fit right inside your ear holes virtually invisible and the haven't dropped out of my ears once whilst biking, walking and hoping on and off buses! I haven't mad my mind up if I'm keeping them, if not Amazon returns are easy enough and you have 30 days to return!

much more desirable at this price.... the is for posting!!

I purchased them, and sold them 2 weeks later. They fit well and sound OK, but as sound waves break down earwax it'll seep into the earbuds and block the sound. There's loads of reports of issues with this.

Yeh ive been looking at those for a while now, might have to take the plunge and see how they are! Whats the difference between those and the ones with the bigger charging case? Just holds more charge with a bigger battery id presume?

Yeah I think it's just a bigger capacity battery, it's showing that you can charge your mobile from it in the photo on Amazon, I might send for that see what difference is! I've tried several other types over last couple of weeks from Amazon but the sound and build quality is naff to say the least, I will probably try a few more from Amazon b4 I decide to keep any for good!

Is there anything that would put you off them thus far? I didnt know amazon would let you return something that gets put in your ears like that.

If you mean the ones I gave link to only problem is the battery capacity only lasting no more than a couple of hours! But that is the same for most of these true wireless earbuds, I suppose technology only allows atm limited battery capacity! The only other limitations seems to be lack of functionality ie no track selection or volume control! I've never really had any problems getting Amazon to accept returns even for hygiene reasons! They always refund me within a few days after receiving my returned items! Only thing to watch for is sometimes Amazon try to deduct postage costs without informing me! I just go on Amazon live chat and they usually apologize and give instan refund or sometimes credit my account!

What rot ! Sound waves go in your ear all day long, you don't find you ear constantly dripping wax every time you tilt it do you? And how do you think these are any different from wired earbuds which don't seem to suffer from this affliction.

​You laugh, but when I work at the gym clearing up they frown on us using headphones. But these buds in an ear or even two while I listen to a few hours if audio books think won't be an issue. Even seen a duty manager do same. If a customer thinks it's a hearing aid but helps me pass the hours while getting paid I will be happy.

Anyone tried this with video and does it has lip sync issue? Looking for a Bluetooth earphones that don't have lip sync

Yeah, AptX is the cure for latency issues when watching movies via Bluetooth but as said you need AptX on both end's for receiver and transmitter!

I know I'll get shot down for mentioning this but I got a pair of Apple AirPods for my birthday and found them to be very reliable, no drop outs and 5 hour battery per use, when you put them in the tiny case it charges them and you should get 24 hours total usage away from a plug. I can run with them, they don't fall out and the sound quality is great.

A bit more expensive at £169 but I'm confident they will still be going in a few years so worth it to me.

Edit: they work with Apple and Android. Few extra features for Apple users.

Take care

I assumed they are only compatible with Apple products, a bit out of my budget for now!

Sound waves create heat, which in such a confined space along with the heat generated by the earphones themselves, causes lots of wax melt [even with very clean ears, trust me]. Also, normal earphones do get blocked by earwax. Even if, to you, it looks like there is no wax in your ear - there is. And it will get onto and into in-ear earphones.

To my knowledge none of these true wireless earbuds support AptX. But check the AptX website it should list most licensed AptX products listed!
Here's link to AptX website, this shows all Samsung products with AptX, but doesn't list these samsung earbuds in this op!

You are not supposed to clean your ears.

Earwax is manufactured in your ears to keep them clean, lubricated and … Earwax is manufactured in your ears to keep them clean, lubricated and protected. Doctors say using cottons swabs or other even more invasive tools to rout out earwax can damage, puncture or even dislocate bones used for hearing.Earwax elimination takes place naturally when ear movements while talking or chewing help move old earwax out of your ears; the wax may then be washed away when you bathe and then “new” earwax can form.

Thanks! I just check on samsung spec sheet and apparently this doesn't support AptX.

I bought these from Samsung directly and was not impressed the battery life when bluetooth connected to your phone is under an hour,, shocking. Like was pointed out above they do get clogged up easily if you exercise and sweat they also don't hold a charge so if within the charging case they are left with a full charge they passively waste through this charge at rest, irritating. Not to mention the after sales service would not allow me a refund outside of 30 days when they clogged and sound was crap. I wouldn't get them again

QCY Q29 or Q26 if you want to try for cheap. Decent sound quality and battery life and not insanely expensive like the rest (£30 on ebay) I use Shure SE535 earphones normally so I am used to pretty damn good sound as well.

Pseudoscience and rot. The one millionth of a degree the sound waves will heat your ear is insignificant to the fact that you are blocking the airflow in your ear and therefore creating a nice warm, moist space. Your earplugs (any earplugs) get grubby because you are shoving them into a dirty ear and then moving about, not because of any rubbish about the sound waves heating your ears up.
