I am using LGv30+ and Mi Mix.
You won't get the benefit of the HiFi Quad DAC on the V30+, right? For me, the point of getting the 'G' and 'V' series phones from LG is because of the HiFi Quad DAC....

From my understanding, the phone DAC will not be used at all if you connect via Bluetooth. The DAC in the Bluetooth headset will be used instead.

Yes. The HiFi Quad DAC will not be used. I will have the best of both worlds. The E8 provides a very good quality sound experience when I want to go total wireless and when using wired connection I can drive high impedance earphone for better sound quality.

Either way I am happy.

Just a side note. The E8 sound quality is really good and I proclaim it to be the best sounding truly wireless that I have tested.

Hat's off to you guys, I find myself unwilling to pony up 400sgd for a wireless (truly wireless!) IEM like the E8. Only w/l gear I have is a Klipsch Image One BT which I'd gotten years ago.....back before stumbling down fast and hard on this audiophile hill.

I was at Stereo and the sales person told me that the E8 has bluetooth connection issue after the latest update. Is it true?

Any connection lag with video playing?

No not true. I am running the latest update. No issue at all. Infact i actually taught one of the Stereo guy on how to pair the E8. Hope they got it right.

Video playing lag is very very minimum. Infact this is one of the best i have tested for video lag.

Am using Jaybird Run... love it except that left ear occasionally will drop connection. The sound quality and isolation is good

I am skeptical about it.. No unboxing video no demonstration on how the earpiece works, feels like a rushed/copied project. Even the pictures from the updates looked rough nothing like how it looked from the promotional video.

Just stumbled upon this thread. Is there any other good truely wireless earbuds with the price range of iconx 2018? I tried and it sounded worse than my china qy8 which cost $20. .. But I am still tempted to buy it for sports use as well as the touch sensor to control volume.

Can you control volume from the earbuds?

Can try the Erato verse. Just launched. Size around the same as Apollo 7. About $239 if I can recall.

Oh where can I get it? Looks good and minimal design.

Alright so I have used my Samsung Gear IconX 2018 for about 5 days, and these are my thoughts so far.

1. Connectivity
The bluetooth connection is pretty stable even in crowded places or commuting, but there can be cut offs in 1 side, but quite rarely and usually it is like a split second.

For the issue that I was having (opening the charging case, phone bluetooth settings showed that earbuds connected, but app doesnt show so), I realise there's a fixed way that Samsung wants us to use the earbuds or maybe its just my phone. I have to turn on my phone's bluetooth, wait for the scanning pop up and then open the charging case. Once I see its connected for audio/media/call, then i close the pop up, enter the Samsung Gear App, then it shows connected there.

2. Comfort
The earbuds will stay in your ears quite firmly with the right fit of wingtips and eartips. But I find even the smallest wingtip presses against my ear too hard, and ear fatigue is real here. Once again, maybe its just my ear shape or I'm wearing them wrongly. The pressure of the tips on my ear is much more bearable when I'm walking, or just sitting upright, but when lying down it feels kinda uncomfortable.

3. Touch Sensor
There's a touch sensor on each earbud to tell if they are in your ears or not, and I totally dislike this feature. Sometimes even if the earbud is in my ear, the sensor doesnt tell so. So at times when I want to only use 1 earbud, I remove the side that is actually "touching" my ear, with the other side not detecting its in my ear, my media will pause, and you would need to readjust for the earbud to register that its in your ear.

I won't comment on the audio part, as I'm no audio expert and I was not looking for audio quality when I bought it, but more of looking for something for me to use on the go, on the move.

when connecting E8, does yours autoconnect to your phone when you power it up?

Mine seems I power on the right bud then I take the left and right and press both for like 1-2 seconds till the right ear shows blue light. Then I go to my phone and open Bluetooth then click on E8. Then it will link to my phone.

Been doing this as this was what the sales guy taught me.

Are you doing it differently?
This is my only issue that my phone doesn't automatically link to my E8 when I switch the E8 on. I never off my phone Bluetooth. I'm using a Note8 btw.
