Couldn't be more pleased with these earbuds, the best of five pair over the past nine years!
Reviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on July 22, 2022
The first thing that I noticed was how easy it was to pair to my phone, my PC, and my car (I gave up earbuds in the car before I left the driveway - just a bad idea to be isolated from everything). The other four pair that I've had were such hassles in pairing that a sixth pair that I got two months ago were returned to Amazon. The next test was battery life.I've never had a pair of buds that lived up to their "6 hours" (or 18 hours in one case) of use before needing recharging. Well, these have lasted a little more than 6 hours the four times I've used them. Three, comfort. Normally, I have to try on all of the tips that come with earbuds. These fit perfectly, and are so comfortable that I forget they're there. Case: Unlike the previous case which I literally could not open without using my pocketknife, these are easy. Once you open them, the lights on the buds will tell you that they're read [blue lights]. Then there is a nice LCD display that will tell you how much power there is left in each bud. After use, you put them into the case, and it tells you how much power is left and, after they've been in the case for a bit, when they reach 100%. Charging is pretty fast, though I'm not sure how fast. If you still have 50% of the charge when you insert the buds, I'd say it takes 90 minutes to full charge, but it may be much faster than that. Looks: Who cares? Okay, so some of you want to look cool and have white antennae hanging from your ears like some discharge. Others want pink or red or orange. Why? I don't care if these buds are black and fill my ear: they fill ears and head with music. They don't become dislodged and any wouldbe thief would take one look and know that I'm not worth mugging! One other thing: The older I get, the more I use my phone as a computer. I really don't get many calls and, when I do, I get flustered by my own ringtone, Chopin's Scherzo in E Minor. But, with the one call I got last week, the buds immediately muted, and I tapped the right ... or was it the left ... earbud to answer. It was great. My long lost uncle in Ghana had come into three tons of gold and I could get in on this windfall by sending him my credit card info...
Summar: Five stars, but I rarely give five stars. My hearing isn't what it used to be, but noise cancelling seems really good. However, I have a problem with or without buds - but usually with anything Bluetoothed - with high end "noise." Hey, that's what comes from listening to Frankie Vallie or Harry James at high volume for 60 years!
