You can consider the Samsung Galaxy buds too. They are a bit cheaper than the Nuarl and mavin. I like the sound quality and features of the Galaxy buds out of the rest, but too bad cannot try.
Interesting, how does it stand out from the rest though? Do they come with AptX HD? Because im planning to change my phone soon (due for recontract) and im not sure if im going with another samsung device (Mate X is sexy AF, while S10 doesnt support AptX HD from what i read). Thanks.

I like the Samsung Galaxy buds for it's mature sound tuning (i.e. no boomy flabby bass, no tinny treble, no muddy mids). It supports bluetooth AAC, and if used with a Samsung phone it also uses the proprietary Samsung scaleable codec. Don't worry about the aptx support, it is also a lossy codec like AAC, and some say AAC is even better than aptx. Aptx HD isn't common on most phones and bluetooth buds now, maybe it requires a much higher bandwidth than standard aptx. Maybe LDAC will become more popular first instead.

I actually think aptx hd would be better received, since it's from Qualcomm

LDAC is inside Android 8 liao. Aptx HD still not so common yet. Anyways I think aptx or aac good enough for streaming audio liao given current battery limitations.

If not mistaken the Nuarls NT01AX has AptX HD. Thats why im considering it.
Also Huawei already has AptX HD capability. Along with a few other major brands. Its strange why samsing hasnt adopted it eventhough it already has AptX..

Not sure if there is aptx hd. Only mentioned aptx. If got will be very interested. Good price. I looking at MTW. Only concern is the fitting. Currently using earin m2. Excellent fit but sound is also neutral.

I am using the Jabra elite 65t for about 5 months now. So far very good and reliable compared to my crazybaby nano, which I have dumped it after one week of using.
does it holds well during running?
