Does it drop out easily from ears, esp used during workout?

Sent from HUAWEI LYA-L29 using GAGT
I donít usually wear it for workouts. I think light gym workouts should be fine once you have fitted tips suited to your ear canels. I have very large ear canals (have to use the largest possible soft-tips) but it feels secure. The buds are very lightweight and I donít feel them when i use for my commute to work. That includes a long train ride and 10 min walk from the MRT.

Just to add, for the Anker Libery Air, there are a couple of issues I noticed in the few days i have been using:

1) Switching between devices is NOT seamless. You need to go d/c from your current device, either bluetooth off or in the menu, and then go to the new device and connect via bluetooth settings. My plantronics was easy: just pause whatever Iím doing on my current device, and connect via the bluetooth settings on the new device.

2) The sound connection is solid. But had three issues which happened once:
a) The stereo sound broke and I only had sound out from the right bud when I just paired them.
b) The sound sync between Left and Right decoupled after 30 mins and there was a lag between left and right. Had to slot back into the case and reconnect.
c) The usually good sound quality suddenly became echo-y after 30 mins and had to slot the buds back in the case and pull out.

Having said that, these issues only occured once for me. Iím still very happy with them.

Connection wise? Any disruptions let's say watching downloaded videos on the bus or like delays in the audio.

Look like the earbuds are the same. Only add wireless charging to the case.
