Not sure about 2018 icon x. 2017 I find it is very bearable. The worst video lag I have tried is from my ERATO Apollo 7.
Hmm I thought there's only 2 version of iconx.

The one they are displaying and selling now they call it Iconx 2018. Then there's the previous one with lousy battery life.

The first version is called IconX with poor battery life and HRM. The latest version released this year (2017) is called IconX 2018, great battery life but no HRM.

Loving the E8. Been using for a week now and it's just really sleek looking. The sound is exciting!
do they drop out easily?

I see. Thanks for the feedbacks guys.

Just ordered one set ended paying around 180 thanks to the $50 Qoo10 coupon I won yesterday. Hopefully the connection is as solid as described when I'm on the move

Jabra Elite Sport offers balanced audio across the frequency. Good plushy bass and forward mids and sufficiently clear treble, similar sound signature as the Jabra Sport Pulse. Very tight fit on the ears, like wearing CIEM.

I am testing this, Beoplay E8, Samsung IconX at the same time. Jabra is my preferred and comes with coach voice features and heart-rate monitor.

Beoplay E8 is slightly more exciting sound, with slight V-shaped frequency, clear treble and responsive bass. Design-wise, it is the nicest.

IconX is the worst, when testing with non-Samsung phones, audio quality is very poor. But the advantage is in-ear storage.
Just finished a proper review of the Beoplay E8 and the Jabra Elite Sport. Both are neck-to-neck as my favourites.



The E8 has one small drawback: some phones I connected to does not deliver good audio quality, while Elite Sport seems to be good with all the phones I tested with.



Also, Elite Sport has a lot more tech like HRM, accelerometer, the app that provides voice coach, etc. But between the 2, I would rather wear the E8 because it's more comfortable and not so chunky. The audio is also more transparent and spatial, while the Elite Sport is cosier and more mid-forward.

Just received my iconx 2018.

Connection and pairing is super easy, just open the case and it's automatically paired to my phone already.

But there's a slight issue with the Samsung gear app. Despite the earbuds are already connected to the phone, I would need a few attempts to re connect on the app to make the app shows that the iconx is connected. Anyone using iconx have encounter this?

HiFi Quad DAC is always triggered when a headphone or IEM is plugged in, High Impedance mode is triggered with IEM's or headphones with 50 Ohm impedance or higher. then there's the 'External Device' mode and lastly, 'Normal' mode. So, High Impedance has the most juice, followed by External Device which is a mid-power setting, 'Normal' is the weakest. There's a way to trick the phone into going to External Device mode for a little more power for headphones with less than 50 Ohm impedance....
