Ambient mode
 
Hi,

I bought the Creative Outlier Gold. It's a good earbud but I need something with ambient mode.

Which earbud has the best ambient mode?

I am using it when driving. I need to be able to hear traffic sounds and be able to chat with family members in my car.

I am using Android phone leh.

AirPods Pro... best ambient mode.

Sony WF ambient mode not as good, due to the seal tip.

In car, best use car sound system la. If wear earphones and kena accident, you will be disadvantaged...

I am looking for ambient mode with no sound leak.

Android phone can use AirPods Pro? Do I lose any feature when I use it with Android phone?

Why would u wear anything in ur ears with ppl in the car and while driving some more? Get a bluetooth headset or just wear 1 side of ur outlier gold if u need something for handsfree calls

That is why I am looking for ambient mode. It's for safety.

Precisely. I am asking about ambient mode because I care about safety.

When I am driving, I use one side of Outlier as my Bluetooth earpiece for answering calls. But Outlier noise isolation is good. Even when I am wearing only one side, I think it will be good if there is ambient mode.

The purpose of ambient mode in ear buds is for safety. It's for situational awareness.

The line between Bluetooth earpiece and earbuds is blurred nowadays. Many people are using ear buds such as AirPods or Galaxy Buds as their Bluetooth earpiece for in car usage. Both models come with ambient mode.

5. Can we use hands-free devices like microphones and earphones?

Yes, motorists can use the aid of hands-free function and applications as long as these do not interfere with the driver’s line of sight. This means that no communication or electronic gadget should be affixed on the car’s dashboard and steering wheel. In addition, drivers are only allowed to wear earphones when making or receiving calls. Using earphones to listen to music falls under “similar acts” in Section 4B of the law, in addition to reckless driving violation penalized under other relevant laws. Dashcams may be placed above the dashboard or behind the rear view mirror as long as it does not obstruct the driver’s line of sight.
USA some states and Canada is a no go.

I think the noise isolation is due to the pressure from the earpiece... thus not sure if there is so call ambient mode :D

AirPods Pro work perfectly with Android phones. I tested it. The only features you lose are battery indicator and firmware updates.

I compared it with Sony and indeed the transparency mode is better on AirPods. They also feel more comfortable. I also like that the transparency mode is auto-activated if you only wear one earbud, which makes sense as it balances your ear. Being white colour, it also benefits ease of finding it in the event that you accidentally dropped in the car.

As of now, there are very few choices for earbuds with transparency. Having said that, the Huawei Freebuds 3 is launching on 30 Nov at SITEX with free gifts worth $172, only available at SITEX launch. The Freebuds is open-fit, meaning you will ear outsides sounds naturally. Worth considering.
