Looks like the pressure on the ears are the same for the first gen and 2018 version.

I have the Iconx 2018. Initially I thought the default medium size fins suits my ear beteer but it hurts after prolong listening (2 hrs of running), then I switch to the smallest fins and it fits perfectly.

I think it really depends on the size and shape of the ears. The default medium size can't even get into my ear, I changed to the small one and it will hurt after prolong usage.

Too bad Samsung don't let people try these things out at their experience stores :s22:

Try the comply TW. I have good result from them. Also can try spin fit.

iPhone 7 Plus... it was unstable with the old firmware... after the latest firmware upgrade, the Bluetooth connection was much better... not much drop connection... the only thing tt I dislike now is it does not sync when watching movies.

What phone are you using? I have a review unit and have tested with all my phones and none of them can deliver clean audio. I rank it one of the poorest audio quality TWE. Design-wise, not very fantastic too. But granted, the price is reasonable.

Hmm it's the wingtip part cause it's there to prevent the earbud from falling out of the ears.

The wingtip sort of exert too much pressure.

Was searching in youtube for wireless earbuds options, with the established brands like Jaybird Run, Sony Wf1000x, B&O E8 etc. All these are over SGD$200 sia....

Wanna upgrade from my Jaybird Bluebuds X, coz wire already exposed and also turned sticky...

Then somehow chance upon this video



Since it's only USD$19, ie ~SGD$30, went ahead to hoot one.

Man, am I surprised by the SQ....Bass is actually more powerful than the Jaybird Bluebuds X, though mids are not as good, but still decent enough for those bass-heavy or EDM kinda music.

The cons is occasional drop-out from one earbud, but not very common, and understand this can also happen on those >$200 ones too.

Really impress with the price-to-performance value of this earbuds.

Hmm does it have volume control?

Nope, gotta control from source, ie phone.

I have tried the lower range too and most of them have right and left sync issue. Volune unequal on both side are quite common. More on how lucky you are getting a good set. The more expensive do have better quality control, better materials, specs, finishing , design , sound quality....etc. Basically is a chicken and egg thing.

One thing is for sure. Alot of manufacturer still cannot get the connection to work 100%.

ERL Wireless Earbuds
 
Anyone has experience using the ERL wireless earbuds? Going at US$49 with free shipping.

Think it was mentioned in one of the HWZ articles previously.

They are not even shipped. Think is from Jan 18. Just a side note. I got the Crazy baby nano from indiegogo on Nov 16. They promised to ship by Nov end. Until now I have not receive them. So unless you can wait. Or else stay far far.

Here I would like to share with you 2 local brand TWE. Local warranty, local shops carry them, you can test them, and you support local brands.

GTA Insight: nice design, mids-centric sound quality, short battery life, but charging case can charge more than 10 times. Retail price below S$200. I wear them for runs, no problem.

Alpha & Delta JAAP: Kickstarter, 5-hour battery life, unique dual-charging cable. Bass-heavy, generous accessories and earbuds. Retail price below S$100. It looks massive and not so pretty, but it's the most secure, and you can loosen the earbuds once a while without removing the unit from the ears.

https://i0.wp.com/musicphotolife.com...lta-Jaap_1.jpg

But personally, I will still go for Jabra Sport Elite if I am serious in enjoying good music and stat tracking for my runs. I mean, you don't buy cheap shoes if you are really into running ya?

For non-runners, I recommend Beoplay E8 or Erato Apollo 7, excellent audio clarity and sound considering they are true wireless. But, being true wireless, there will be occasional connection issues and battery charging hassle.

Isn't this the same as ERL? They take the OEM brand and rebrand it?

Look at the actual real life pictures.

Apparently they are also the same one who made the X2T

Must be careful when getting from Kickstarter. I got conned from the Kanoa Kickstarter. They just take your money and delay the shipping until they run away.
