Any Budget? I tested the Jaybird freedom and it was excellent sounding. (Shall not go into the sound specs techs, too geeky). Go to connect IT stores to try them.

bluetooth + noise cancellation...can try Sony MDR ZX770BN, only $200.

if higher budget, definitely just go for Bose QC 35.

if use for train commute, some say noise isolation is better instead, never tried this b4.

Moxpad X90, they're great sounding earphones with dual dynamic drivers. Quite cheap too.

Personally since I am using CIEM, I had bought Lear BTC-01 Bluetooth Cable for CIEM. So far very happy with its performance, except for the low batt life (3hrs).

I had also tried using momentum wireless headphones which work great as well!

1000x very good. Rly light and handsfree, in the sense that you don't even need to take out your MP3 player or smartphone. All the controls can be done on the headphone.

Has anyone tried the Sony MDR 1000x?

I reviewed Earin before. It only supports audio, cannot answer calls or control playback, volume, etc. There is no buttons on the devices, you need the charging dock to turn it on if it auto powers off. Connectivity is also less stable. S$349

If you are using a Samsung smartphone, you can consider Samsung Gear IconX. It is slightly cheaper and with a lot more features, but the battery life is a little shorter than Earin. Although the IconX works with any smartphones, I find the audio quality is poorer on non-Samsung. S$298

IconX Review: http://musicphotolife.com/2016/08/sa...without-cords/



I just finished reviewing Erato Apollo 7, it is rather expensive but audio quality is clear, excellent for instrumentals. And battery life - 3 hours - is one of the better ones for true wireless earbuds. Connectivity is also more stable. S$499.
