    I tried Sennheiser Momentum 2, Air Pod pro and Jabra but I found this one – for at least the price point – outbid them all in sound detail and comfort. I used it for hours continously with out feeling any discomfort in my ear.
    I am specially blown by the audio quality and detail, it may need a little work around on EQ found on the app to find your best test. The spatial/360 audio is a bonus with my Amazon music subscription.
    I didn’t expected all these quality features for a price of $110.

    App is great. Excellent equalizer and customizing the buds function buttons is wonderful.

    I may update my reviews once I used it longer.

    I highly recommended for ear comfort and rich audio quality.

    Got these headphones to use for work due to them supposedly having good sound quality and a good mic. That sound quality is good if you want to listen to music but as for using them Bluetooth wise to connect to your phone for calls or to connect to a computer for calls they are awful. Any phone call I took everybody kept asking if they were on speakerphone or if I was really far away because they could barely hear me and I sounded very echoey of what they could hear. The my quality on this is comparable to that of a $5 pair of headphones with a mic ! Definitely not worth the money if you plan on using them for anything but listening to music

    The clarity when the bass hits is incredible. Wow these are good. 🎧 even though they are in-ear these kind of rest in your ears I love the way these fit. There is depth to audio on songs when I’m playing them on Apple Music that I’ve never experienced in headphones before. These are quality.

    I’ve owned JBL, Sony, SkullCandy, & two different kinds of Dre Beats. For those Sony, I bought these because the Beats I have in my photos- kept disconnecting from my Bluetooth randomly while working frequently for no reason. It would interrupt my calls and meeting I facilitated. So far these Sony are way HIGHER quality noise. Love that they’re smaller. Without a face mask for Covid getting tangled in my beats ear loop. These only go into the ear and don’t get into the way of ANYTHING. I’m impressed. I downloaded the apps that are suggested on the packaging for the Sony earbuds. And it’s true you can adjust whatever sound quality you want and customize everything you want about them. Gets a 5 out of 5 stars from me!

    I’m very impressed with these wireless ear buds. They work with the Sony connect app and you can enable DSEE. The sound is rich and full range. I’m actually surprised but I like them better than my Sony Xtra bass wired ear buds. It seems you can have EQ settings on and still enable DSEE, so I’ve played around with it a bit. I’m not usually one to use equalizers, but the clear bass setting sounds ok sometimes. Usually, I’m just enjoying the sound from these with EQ off and DSEE on.

    I’ve been using them with calls and the mic works fine. Listening to music and the sound is balanced and clear. Also, when I watch movies on my phone, I don’t seem to be getting that annoying lip sync delay that my previous JBL buds had.

    The main codec these use is AAC. I like how they are light weight and fit nicely into the ear. I feel like exercising with these will be no problem.

    The case is simple and light. An led on each unit lights up while charging and if you plug the case in to USB C, an led lights up under the lid while charging and goes out when finished.

    I got these yesterday paired them to my Xperia 10ii, set up the Sony head phone app and played with them for a bit. The sound is amazing! Miles , Bowie, Talking Heads, SRV, Dick Dale, Seu Jorge, Tom Petty, Moby, Motorhead. They all sound fantastic. Put on Vivaldi’s 4 Seasons this morning and again FANTASTIC!
    Small and comfortable. They seat firmly and there is no movement when I shake my head. The MEGABASS is back baby!
    Almost 2 months in and I continue to be amazed by the sound on these headphones. Went for the 3 month Amazon radio unlimited with HD and love it. Currently listening to some Blues Traveler and was dancing in the cold Seattle night with a smile on my face. NICE!

    Ok guys. I am a life long android user. I currently have a Google Pixel 4.
    I received my product & the box does in fact say
    “Made for iPhone/ipod”.
    I’m here to say that they will connect with any Bluetooth!! I scrolled through lots of “these don’t work!” Reviews & found one that spelled it out like I am.
    You actually have to download the Sony app to be able to connect these earbuds, at least I did, but that’s no big deal at all. You also need to make sure they’re charged & they won’t work of you leave one in the charging pod. You’ve got to take them both out to get them to connect to your Bluetooth.
    The instructions that come in the box are less than cryptic. Basically, there’s a small qr code as you open the box, scan that & you’ll get instructions.
    Also, you can absolutely return them through Amazon because that’s where you’re buying them from. Of course Sony won’t do a return! You didn’t purchase this product through them.
    Anyways, I literally set these up 10 minutes ago & have been listening to music on them while I’ve been writing this.
    These are amazing & I love them.

    Los compre en oferta, el costo beneficio es bastante adecuado, el sonido es bueno, aun cuando no tiene la funcion de mega bass, como otros modelos que tengo, se sustituye por la aplicacion, que permite mayor rango de acusticas, por sus equalizador, lo que es bastane positivo, por si te gusta el audio mas plano o simplemente llegar a un rango que te resulte mas agradable.
    Posiblemente el unico detalle es que no es posible cambiar la funcionalidad de el boton de cada audifono, pero por el costo, es un detalle que se puede dejar pasar, fuera de esto, tanto la comodidad, duracion de bateria y portabilidad son muy adecuados.

    The advertisement and comments show people pairing these headphones with Androids. The box I received, said made for iPhone. My Samsung couldn’t even read them. I went to return online and they said this item is not returnable.
    I’m still out $68.00, they were part of an epic deal day, I’ve never had this happen with Amazon before and I am really disappointed. ***update I was able to contact a live person and they processed the return for me. I still wish I had the headphones, but I’m glad Amazon took care of this. I love shopping on Amazon!

    I’m not too fussy with products as long as they work ok. I paid $99cad for this and it sounds and feels like a $99 product. Don’t expect this to be on par with a $200+ ear bud. Everything seems to be working just fine. May or may not update review after some months of using this product. Only saying “may not” because I might forget lol
    The box on the back says it’s for Iphone/ipod and doesn’t say anything about Android but it actually works for Androids as I’m using it with my Samsung Galaxy S21 Android phone.
    Overall I like these ear buds. They fit nice and won’t fall out even after shaking my head to test it out. Comes with multiple silicone ear piece for ppl with different ear sizes which is great.

    Son tal como están descritos en la publicación. Resultaron ser muy buenos audífonos, considero que para el precio, las características y la calidad de sonido están bien balanceados. Los he utilizado para escuchar música por largos ratos, videollamadas y llamadas de audio, y en todos los casos han funcionado perfectamente. También para hacer ejercicio resultaron muy cómodos y no se salen fácilmente por movimientos bruscos o rápidos, al menos en mi caso.
    Son cómodos pero después de varias horas las orejas se pueden cansar, en mi caso así fue pero dependerá de cada quien.

    La duración de la batería la encuentro correcta y más con la cápsula que les da una carga completa extra, y si se les da un uso regular al día puede llegar a durar una semana completa. El cable con el que vienen es un poco corto para mi gusto y no incluyen adaptador de corriente, para tomarlo en cuenta.

    El audio es muy bueno, solo tuve que aumentar ligeramente el “clear bass” a través de la aplicación ya que inicialmente suenan algo planos, lo cual creo que es bueno ya que puedes escuchar un buen rango de frecuencias y ajustar al gusto. La app es sencilla y no hay mucha información, pero creo que es lo suficientemente útil.

    Actualización: después de 6 meses de uso continuo (no diario), siguen estando en perfectas condiciones. Los botones siguen suaves, al presionar, la batería de mantiene igual de bien en ambos. El único detalle es que, cómo otros comentan en otras páginas el audífono derecho parece raspar con la música a algo volumen y frecuencias graves pero, en mi caso, no se escucha todo el tiempo y ha sido después de 6 meses de uso continuo en varias condiciones. Puede ser un poco de humedad o defecto de fábrica, en mi opinión no es algo que deba preocupar por el uso que yo le he dado en este tiempo. Siguen siendo una excelente recomendación tomando en cuenta la calidad de sonido y batería como características principales. 👌

    This is my first pair of true wireless headphones, I’m listening as I write this, and I haven’t written a review in years. I’m not a fan of bluetooth, so I was skeptical of buying these, but needed something for a long flight. For reference, I’m not an “audiophile”, but my home hifi system cost 10k, is very minimalist (Hegel H190 w/ KEF Ref1s) and sounds pretty amazing.

    About ten years ago, it occurred to me that we would soon have an audio version of Google Glass, and it has been entertaining watching this slowly manifest in these types of headphones. This concept is very much in its infancy and I’m not surprised to see an overlap in market between tech users and the hearing impaired community. Soon, I imagine that there will be intelligent noise cancellation (select for/against certain “waveprints” i.e. FOR your friends voice at a crowded restaurant and AGAINST the crying baby sitting across the room) and the unique waveprint of your voice will be included with your general contact information. Infinite other applications, but I digress.

    I was surprised to see the breadth of the market, with so many companies doing gymnastics to distinguish themselves, and failing miserably in the reviews. And you would think that humanity would have mastered bluetooth pairing and connection by now, but for so many of these products, that is not the case. Sooo many dumb dumb dumb products out there, poorly designed and with little to no product testing or quality control, banking on what’s left of their brand coupled with the nuisance of having to return a terrible product. But this isn’t one of them.

    I think that Sony has nailed it with these headphones. There is definitely room for improvement, but not at this price point. The product arrives in a tiny little biodegradable box (which I love) with no frills or desperate attempts to gain first impressions. Cost has been reduced on the carrying case materials (good!) and there are little magnets which hold the buds in place (love it!). I plugged them in to charge for a bit, then put them in my ears. I was pleasantly surprised to hear them automatically pair, upon release from the charger, and connect to my Samsung Galaxy A50. I then put on Spotify, which has a somewhat poor bitrate to begin with (320 kbps) and is cheapened even further by bluetooth, and got about what I was expecting: a totally adequate though far from stellar sound that was largely out-shined by the newfound convenience and extreme comfort of this ergonomically well designed and executed technology. I then tried them with some high quality recording on high quality FLAC files. I really don’t have much to say about the sound except that it is not offensive. Again, my baseline is a 10K system. The extra space over conventional wired earbuds facilitates bass presence, but there is nothing transcendent or even particularly precise about the mids or highs and no noticeable soundstage. They could possibly benefit from an “open back”, but then you lose the privacy.

    But no one buys these for hifi sound quality. Most people have never even heard hifi. And so much of hifi depends on the physical environment (i.e. the room) that you could never hold this type of product up to those standards. Certainly not at this price. This success of *this* product carries an extra burden of comfort, convenience, and ease of use. In spite of my system, I have actually found myself wearing these around the apartment so I can listen at higher volumes late at night. They are ridiculously comfortable as so many other products fail so miserably at this most basic and essential function, and I honestly forget that I am wearing them. And the controls are simple and intuitive and don’t have any stupid design flaws that make you want to strangle the designer. AND YOU DON’T HAVE TO USE AN APP (though one is available) WHICH MEANS YOU DON’T HAVE TO GIVE YOUR PERSONAL DATA TO A PSYCHOPATH! And again, the sound is adequate and inoffensive, and in my lack of experience, I am unconvinced that a much better sound could be produced, even for another $200/unit. But, this is my first pair, so what do I know?
