If you put the earbuds in it should stop flashing?
Oh. Didn't realise that's how it works.

BTW, I feel like the treble of these are far too harsh. The high range seems to be quite a mess.

The flashing blue LEDs before you put them on shows you that the earbuds are searching for a device to connect.

Yup, it uses the proximity sensor to detect. You can try to eq down the right few bars in the equalizer to lower the treble energy.

Try changing to Priority on Sound Quality in the app. This uses AAC. The default is Priority on Stable Connection which uses SBC.

A quick question, is there quick device switching like Apple AirPods. I have an China TWS, I must manually disconnect the set from phone before I can connect from my iPad and vice versa. AirPods just need to go into the BT menu and click on the device and the connection will switch.
