Which is your favourite?
Sound and controls, the Samsung Galaxy buds. But since it cannot be turned off manually or auto shut down if not in use, it will drain the battery if I don't bring the case out to store it. I like the creative outlier air for its battery life and design. The mee audio I like it for it's mids/vocals and controls and can shut down manually and auto turn off. I like the qcy t1c sound but it doesn't has volume control and battery life is average. Nuarl I don't like the bass too much and it's quite big, but the battery life is good. Mifo has tiny buttons for controls and is hard to press, the light also keeps blinking even when in use and the sound is not as clear.

Wow.. anywhere that we can demo the galaxy buds? I'm honestly quite surprised you rate it so highly, especially when there's the nuarl and outlier air too.

Seems like hype for the nuarl has died down yea?

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.
Long term update on the anker liberty airÖ

The texture of the case damn grubby.
The signal drop issue between left and right hasn't recurred for a few months.
Most problematic issue now is that after I stowed the buds in the case and tossed into my bag, it often still connects to my phone. Not sure if dirt went in or the magnets are not strong enough to hold the buds firmly inside the case. But the buds are just a little loose inside the case and if it gets a hard knock or is upside down, it WILL connect without u knowing it.

It is kinda annoying and a major design flaw of an otherwise great product (good battery, good sound, relatively cheap)

Went down to stereo yesterday and they said the nuarl and mavin are the latest models with the newer chip that has longer batt life etc.

Should I wait for newer models using that technology to come out, or should I just go for either of those 2 or the creative gold? Only concerned with comfort and sound quality

Using the galaxy buds rn and after testing at stereo, the sound quality is definitely worse than nuarl n01at

Tested at Samsung road show, only suitable for those that don't like bass.

Sound can be quite personal, I like the Nuarl NT01ax better than the Samsung but surely there are people who might appreciate the Samsung better.

Best to try them out yourself.

Creative sounds flatter. Nuarl has more prominent highs, but the bass can be distracting at times.
