Saw a YouTube review on the e8 vs Galaxy buds. The e8 has a little lag on pubg. The Galaxy buds lag alot. But still wanting to see Galaxy buds on Scalable codec, if it has better latency. The reviewer wasn't using a Samsung phone.

When we look at True wireless, i believe that looking at gaming latency is a bit too far off. Be glad that there is no lag when streaming videos. Most of the wireless earbuds cant handle youtube let alone gaming. The airpods should be the best in gaming performance, but comes at the cost of sq.

Actually why would there be a difference be it streaming music off youtube on mobile or playing mobile games?

I dont play games on my mobile so cant test. But using pixel 2 xl for music and occasional youtube. No audio lag noticed when streaming from youtube.

I game on my phone.

Or rather I just want the best ones that can do everything. I watch only a little YouTube. But for the times that I do, I don't want to experience the lag and then have to think about buying something else haha.

If you see the e8 from that comparison video, in YouTube the lag is really really minimal and can be said to have very little to no impact on video watching. Plus you can adjust audio delay if need be.

Look at the pubg test. Gun shot sound lags the visual pretty noticeably. And that will make a difference if you're listening for footsteps, for example. The enemy would've appeared before u can hear him coming.

I know it's not possible for lagless gaming on TW now. Just looking for the ones that come closest.

No offence bro. I assume you watched the video, you could've also just told us what smartphone he used instead of making me watch.

I had to watch for 6minutes 10seconds into the video then that fella mention his smartphone. I heard "oppo r17 pro" which I then googled and could only find either oppo r17 or oppo rx17 pro. I stopped watching and shall just conclude that youtuber reviewer isnt worth my time anymore.

Just my two cents :o

This latency thing differs from model to model for both the wireless earphones and device types. It's just hard to recommend based on personal experience.

Even 2 pairs of the same model NT01AX MT3 can cut off at different distances when paired to the same laptop. And one has better connection and less drop out than the other.

What do you guys think of the new Redmi Airdots?
It's a re-release of the Xiaomi Airdots, but in black and under a cheaper branding.
Only $37.70, very tempting but a lot of the cheap China branded earbuds I tried have bad connections, audio cutting off in one ear (usually left).
Wonder if these will have the connection problems too.

im using shure bluetooth rmce-bt2 coupled with my shure 846.
sq checked, eight hours playback on one charge checked, lag free youtube n gaming playback checked, 15mins charge to get 2 hrs playback checked.

its the next best alternative without carrying a charging case and still being able to use my iem. the only con is the price.

Used to want to go this route, but I prefer using true wireless for times I’m w/o a bag or at the gym. I use my wired ls200is when I’m at the desk or commuting with a bag.
