I was one of them too. Went in at 12 once nearest door open. I guess I was the 2nd one paying for this product.

So far so good. The sound output lag on youtube but I think its more of youtube ios app problem. Rest of the players/app/games were ok, some had a little noticeable lag too.

If only buying for music then no issue with the lag.
I also purchase the outlier gold, i have paired it with my Huawei Mate 10, am using this at home now, but i still getting intermittent sound drop and disconnection from both left / right earpiece. Similar to the situation at the Creative booth i encountered during testing which the staff said because the surrounding have too many interference. I am starting to wonder if i have gotten a faulty set

I did use my mate 10 at the creative booth to test out. I have another phone samsung note 9 and also have the same problem.

I tested the Outlier Gold at Creative's booth yesterday, the staff mentioned there will be intermittent dropouts due to major electronic interference on the show floor and using them during normal circumstances will be fine but he did not allow me to bring the earbuds out for testing which I totally understood.

But the dropouts on the slave earbud was almost permanent, while master earbud had zero dropout during my test (Samsung Note 8, local music file, right master, left slave). I had to remove the master earbud from my ear and move it closer to the slave in order for the slave to start playing music.

Subsequently passed both earbuds to my friend and she mentioned both were working just fine without drop outs

Now I'm wondering if the dropout on slave was due to the size of my head since the master earbud had to pass data to the slave through my head? I must admit I have large face and head, most sunglasses/caps don't fit me and I used to wear a size 7 3/4 jockey cap while in the army

Now I'm contemplating if I should buy them as there isn't 14 day return for the Outlier Gold

Hi Maximus_XXVIII, i tried out your theory on taking off the master earbud and bring it nearer to the slave and really the dropout issue is gone and connection is much more stable.

Good news!!
I use my Jabra Elite 65t ear tips can be fit nicely on my Outlier Gold earbud. Best it can be charge!! Seem like the charging case earbud hole is bigger. I may wanna order SpinFit CP360Z from Taobao as it is cater for Jabra Elite 65t.

My god! The ear tip is so much better than stock, noise isolation is better now. Stronger base and stronger tonality. This ear tip is not so soft. Definitely win Jabra Elite 65t sound quality. I dun feel like returning the tips to Jabra..

I use it to play VG game in my ipad without any EQ. The soundstage is wider and bass is strong and control with this Jabra ear tip. Will review more if I manage to get and use SpinFit C360Z.
I cannot hear outside sound...

Please let us know if spinfit cp360z fits the case.

I am using spinfit for my other earphones and they fit me quite well.

i can get close to 12hrs with Gold. however the pecentage on the phone is unreliable i.e. 48% at 9 hrs of usage drop to 15% within 2 hrs. at 15% there will a low batt warning (beep beep + glowing red bud).

for those having problem, when you re-pair/reset remember to delete the previous profile on your phone first. it did the trick for me.

Just got mine. Sounds great with very good passive noise isolation. The interference was horrendous at CEE but after leaving Suntec, I have not experienced any dropped signals and tested mic to be clear, though a little soft outdoors based on feedback from the conversation.
It is a natural phenomenon when you use these kinds of buds at very crowded places.
Another place that I notice that there will be interference is at those double decker bus exit door area.

Do you mean to say the charger haven't charged yet, or your buds never put inside charger for 3 days?
