True, but it is due to its 10mm driver....

Btw, the salesman just commented that my ears are small :(

Galaxy buds live got 12mm drivers but fits flat into my ears. Nuarl and Sony earbuds they make till quite big, don't know why they don't try to make smaller.

Guess makes it too flat, the sound signature will change also. Maybe once someone opens the earbuds up and start comparing, then will know why their designs are like that. Surely physics in terms of sound comes into play.

Bought xm3 3 days back...on firmware 3.0.0

Music listening is damn shiok over my old buds+ but the call quality leaves much to be desired...crackling sound and often background noise will mask out my voice...

Any tips and tricks on improving call quality ?

Same, mine pointing to the mouth. Sometimes when I run, the ear buds will drop off easily too.

Different people different ears design. Insert them downwards then while still stuffing them in slowly twist towards your mouth or nose depend on individual comfort. You should feel it somehow kind of "lock".

Many factors.

Isit updated to latest firmware or all parties firmware including headphone application and mobile firmware?

Did you drop it?

Immerse it under drizzle?

Its also probably the environment you are in a dense electromagnetic interference or heavy traffic where the vehicles move about. Another reason could also be your phone placement away from Bluetooth, or the way you cover the antenna.

If not then try close applications to free up ram and reboot your mobile phone.

And after tried still stutter badly, get it serviced.

Bring your phone to chest level and try again?

When you twist your buds from downwards and towards your mouth /nose you should feel sort of a "lock". Thats the snug fit you should achieve.

I found out the reason. It was the tracetogether app. The app is constantly using bluetooth, so the earphone and app were fighting for bandwidth.
