The e8 has very short ear tip. For those need the ear tips deeper to have a proper seal, the e8 just doesn't fit. I changed to comply foam tips to try a shallower but tighter seal but it still wasn't ideal. Not to mention, the left earbud became softer than the right after a year. If you can get a good seal, it's a good earbud with good clarity. Bass is kind of weak though. I prefer the more balanced sound of wf 1000x. The sp 700n bass is just too strong. Causes listening fatigue.

Maybe I just prefer the sound of Sony. My pair of srs xb20 sounded better than my Sonos one to me too. Although my audiopro t3 better or as good as the xb20

Don't burn yourself at indiegogo. Buy only products that are actually in the market, already so many scams. Wait for reviews, don't waste money. Soul might be a reputed company but we don't know what the end product quality is.
I find that soul is better sounding than jabra 65t

Just got the Amoi F9 5.0, this version is supposedly the updated version with bt5.0. decided to buy and try since I'm in China for two weeks.

Sounds wise is average, but must say it's better than expected. Bass is a little muddy, mids are surprisingly good, treble is ok as well.

Disconnected 3 times (right bud) while typing this post. Winter now, jacket lots of static so I'll attribute it to this first.

Charging case is pretty small, one third the size of my palm. Case can charge your phone as well (holds 3500mah).

Overall is an excellent buy. Value ratio to me is through the roof, considering it cost me only RMB 89 (about SGD $18), free shipping since it was shipped to my place in China.

I think taobao can ship to sg? I'm not too sure, otherwise might have to go ezbuy or similar agents

E8 gave you enough problems to want to switch too?

Watch out for these upcoming new BT ear buds

1) MIFO O5 cw 7 hrs battery life

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sE4olvzqZEw

2) Mavin Air-X cw 10 hrs battery life (can get leow)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5A2HEhRPqwY

3) Klipsch T5 True Wireless cw 8 hrs battery life

These type of battery life per charge is more likely vs the current 4 - 5 hrs which is hardly enough

The mavin air x seems quite good with Qualcomm processor Bluetooth and strong battery. Anyone got it can review how it compare with Jabra elite active 65t
