Samsung ones are decent, It's my primary unit for my runs, even though I have many review units coming onboard. Reason because it has built-in 4GB storage so I listen without carrying my phone. I also like the built-in voice coach to track my run sessions.

Jabra sound is better, more impactful, but the Jabra Elite Sport is too chunky and my ears are in pain after a while.



If you are already a Samsung phone user, the IconX is quite full-featured for the kind of price you pay. The earbuds are soft and comfortable, yet they stay in the ears securely.

Make sure you get the 2018 version, the older one has poor battery life.

Can both sides be used on its own for answering calls?

Looking to get this from Qoo10 with good pricing after vouchers.
Does the buds feel heavy at 8g per piece? AirPods are just 4g each.

Sorry just saw this message. Can you elaborate on your scenario? Do you mean that if you wear only one earbud and leave the other one in the case, can you answer calls? Let me know the use case so that I can test it out.
