got my PaMu wireless earbuds today


charging up.

will post review probably tomorrow
I got my PaMu earbuds last week (ordered after I read about them here) and have been using it for a couple of days. Sound quality is a lot better than I expected considering their price and I find the fit quite good for my ears. Pairing with my iPod touch was easy peasy, and it connects perfectly every time.

But it's my first time using wireless earbuds (I've been using the bluetooth version of the Shure SE215) so there are some things I'm still getting used to. For one, there's no volume control, which can be a little irritating at times. And the play/pause controls on the earbud are veeeery sensitive so there have been times that I accidentally pause my track when I'm tying my hair back or something. And the one thing I find most inconvenient is being forced to take one out and hold on to it while trying to speak to someone while my music is playing. Usually with normal/wireless earphones I can either lower the volume or just take one side out and let the earphones hang around my neck, but not with these. But I guess that's something I have to learn to get used to doing with wireless earbuds.

In any case, I can't remember whose post on the thread "inspired" me to order the PaMu but thank you! I reckon it's money well spent.

Is the 5.6.0 update for iOS?

I'm using Android, and my E8 is still on 5.4.0.
I'm using Android also. LG V20.

Strange. My Beoplay app has no available updates for my E8. Galaxy S7 here.

Just ordered the Jabra Elite Active 65t today. US$189.

Not sure how long I'd have to wait though. Says 1-4 weeks for stock availability.

I think it's different. Singtel one is not "active".

Jabra Active Elite 65t is new one. Don't know reached Singapore's shore already or not.

Did I fail to mention it's the JABRA ELITE ACTIVE 65T?

Sorry about that. What I ordered is the Jabra Elite ACTIVE 65T.

It is NOT the Jabra Elite 65T. I need the ear buds for jogging.

By the way, thanks for the recommendations. I ended up with the Elite Sports for $275 from Stereo (after they very generously price matched a Lazada listing for me). Very pleased with it so far.

I am kinda torn between Jabra Elite 65T and the active version.
Will the active version comes in more colours? The dark blue/copper match kinda weird.
Would the non-active version be suitable for cycling? As in sweatproof.

i'm getting fit issues. the tips can't seem to create a good seal for me. and using conventional foam tips doesn't seem to hold well as the tip will drop off from the unit itself. Argh!

And i was wrong about the blinking leds. they do stay blinking throughout usage which i hated most. i will probably mark them down with a black marker.

you are spot on with the sensitivity of the touch panels. i have alot of times paused my music while trying to adjust the earbud in my ear.

AQ wise i would say its pretty good for this price point. Just wondering why the volume is so soft compared to others. i have to early max out my iphone volume to get decent noise isolation/cancellation in public especially in commute.

but again at this price point... its really a bargain and i still can live with it.
just hunting for the right tips to get a firm seal would be great.
