Wireless bluetooth EAR BUDS recommendations
 
hi,

looking for wireless bluetooth EAR BUDS,

meaning like air pods, with just 2 small things to put into your ear without any interconnecting cables,

thinking between the sony WF-1000X but seems like have connection issues and not so cheap

criteria :

battery life at least 5 hrs

water proof or resistant, not going to swim with it but if dirty or get caught in rain, dont have to worry,

sound quality, currently use SHURE 215, more bass person

connection : should have strong connect so that wont keep drop and affect your listening experience,

can anyone share their experience of current ear buds on the market ?

thanks !

I have a pair of apollo for a year already and i must say it’s worth my $499!

Battery life after one year is going at 3hrs on full blast!.

Sound wise definitely cannot compare against a wired buds in terms of volume. Full blast is just nice for me tho.

Sound quality is really subjected, vocal is very clear, musical instruments is very clear but the bass not as powerful compared to my wired bud.

Price is on the steep side but i really like the small little design the bud is.

I have used most of the truly wireless till now. Erato Apollo 7 sound is good. Sony WF1000x has connection issue on right ear at the start. But it is rock solid after a few battery charges. WF1000x sound quality is better than Apollo 7. It also has noise cancelling n ambient sound. Current price of wF1000x $279 on Qoo10 and Apollo 7 $329 at Harvey Norman factory outlet at Viva business park. Just my 2 cents.

v1hypersg 09-11-2017 11:21 AM

so your recommendation is either erato apollo 7 or sony wf-1000x ?

any others you would highly recommend ?

Gadgetfreakloh 09-11-2017 01:20 PM

For sound quality. So far the better one are Apollo 7, Earin M1 and Sony WF1000X. Apollo 7 and Earin M1 support Apt-X but Sony has very nice sound stage and noise cancelling. Current favorite is Sony WF100X.

However if you are willing to wait. The upcoming Earin M2 will be good. Current M1 has good sound quality but connection is wonky to the right earbud.

The new Samsung gear icon X is also not bad and has 5 hour battery life plus fitness tracker, heartbeat, build in 4GB storage and ambient sound for $279?

I have not gotten the new gear icon x as the old one will give me a ear ache when using them. So i will pass this.

Think now the best value Truly wireless now will be the new gear icon X.

got complaint about sony wf-1000x, wonder if should take the risk ?

Did anyone in Sony test this product before releasing it? Like holy ****.

Anyway, I went to Stereo in Plaza Sing to test WI-1000X, if it exhibit the same issues.
Excellent sound quality. No sound delay. Tried swinging my phone, no sound cut off. Then I bought it. Used in train, connection very stable, no sound cut off at all. Max volume also seems to be a little higher. Very happy with this WI-1000X

What is amazing about WF-1000x is it is the first truly wireless earbud with noise cancelling. There is no doubt a 0.5 sec video sync lag. But the Apollo 7 and Earin m1 also have this lag. So far only Bragi dash and Sol republic airamp do not have this lag. So is a give and take on truly wireless earbud.

My dream earbud is the Bragi dash pro but it has long lead time due to low production volume.

fatty2641 10-11-2017 10:04 AM

Bragi the Headphone. I have a pair, works like a dream, no connection loss since does not use Bluetooth between the earbuds (uses proprietary magnetic technology). Used many Bluetooth headsets for my sports but they always fail. This one hasn't!

osirisx 10-11-2017 05:29 PM

Qoo10??

Or the Samsung earpod

Sent from Samsung SM-G935F using GAGT

v1hypersg 11-11-2017 01:03 PM

Where can try or demo the bragi the headphone ?

Is it better to get the bragi dash pro even though you dont use the advance function ? Is it available locally ?

NeonX 13-11-2017 07:05 PM

Have a b&o e8 for sale, its not bad but the b&o signature not really for me

Welcome aboard the wireless budtrain buddy!

Do take sometime to gt use to the controls

The switch On sequel you will first hear “power on” for both buds followed by it Connecting to phone and lastly both buds will connect together. I found out that the headset connections might take around 3-5 secs.

Buds quick control are roughly,

Press and release quickly to pause/play

Press and hold for 2sec on right skip to the next song, same for left if u wanna go back to previous song.

For siri, first pause song and double click right button.


Do feedback to us how you find the buds!

Since i’m also a Apollo user myself, i’ll try to help if you encounter and issues since the user manual quite hard to understand!

aHGer83 16-11-2017 09:47 AM

any reccomendations for runners?

I am eyeing the Bragi Dash Pro. Read alot of reviews of it being an improvement over its predecessor the Bragi Dash. Looking forward to it being part of the upcoming Black Friday deal hopefully.

Bragi dash pro is good but stock needs to wait if I not wrong. Previously I checked with shipping to Singapore is $560. Pervious Bragi dash user and sold off due to the frequent disconnection. But they have rectified this on pro so is a good buy except for the price.

Sony WF1000x is good after I burned in. No more disconnection to right earbud and sound are better. Also the one and only true wireless with noise cancelling. Recommended buy.

I have the old Samsung icon x and it is a pain to wear due to the sharp ir sensor that protude out and contact your ear. Also short battery life. Connection is good. But new icon x the sensor is no longer protruding out and 5 hours battery life so this will be a good buy. Only complain is no apt x.

I ordered the crazy baby nano and it looks not bad. Will review when I gets it.

Also waiting for Earin m2. This will be good. Currently using m1 and loved the sound but got disconnection to right earbud.

Ok. There is a new ERATO Verse that is the same size as ERATO Apollo 7. Can check this out at nui box.

aHGer83 19-11-2017 06:14 PM

I saw that they only start shipping end Nov. But not sure how's the sound quality. I read some reviews on their first one that there's connection issues. Not sure if they've improved on that for Air Nano.

Bragi Dash Pro price dropped! Hoot away!

boOz08 21-11-2017 12:47 AM

black friday got any good deals for wireless ear buds? :(

Paiseh new to this bluetooth earbuds thing.. it seems that its quite unreliable or technology is not mature enough yet? since i seen so many that talked about dropping connection, delay etc..

Is there any earbuds that can be both wired + wireless?
Wired when no more battery Wireless when want to use wireless?

:s22:

Quad`ra 21-11-2017 07:34 AM

Bragi Dash Pro
Selling at USD$299 + $21 (GST import) about SGD$430++ (FSSG)
Only 9% discount

Sony WF-1000X
Selling at USD$198 about SGD$267 (FSSG)
No discount

Samsung IconX 2018

Is the technology mature enough for mainstream users?
Or it's still safer to just get those with cord around the neck?

I think it is up to personal choice. My definition of wireless is totally no wire. Current truly wireless do still have some weaknesses. As mentioned. My current choice of near perfect truly wireless will be the Bragi dash pro. I am still waiting for local warranty set to be available.

Hows Apollo 7s $449 vs Sony wf-1000x $349?
In terms of sound...
Search online but not much reviews.

Apollo 7s not worth it in my opinion. Better get Bragi dash pro instead. PM me if you want to try Sony WF-1000X.

Sony WF 1000X & WI 1000X

For those who like to listen music on the go.
I would not recommend the WF 1000X.
My experience with this the battery life suck big time. It's only barely last around 2 hrs.
So WI 1000X has a longer battery life instead, I can enjoy the music while doing shopping or travelling.
Sound wise is lot more better than WF 1000X.

WhiteHunter 30-11-2017 01:56 PM

between WH-1000XM2 and WI-000X, which would be the better choice in terms of better audio quality and noise cancelling?

WH 1000XM2
But if looking for something light and portable
WI 1000X will be the best choice.
