Great idea, keep falling out during sport / gym sessions
22 April 2018
I have been using these earbuds now for 3 days in the gym and sorry to say I am returning them as not fit for purpose intended.
The reason I got these was they seemed to have good YouTube reviews and the reviews on here were alright about the product so thought I would give them a try. I have been using them in the gym last 3 days and the major issue I have is they keep falling out or becoming so loose that all bass is lost and sound is ‘tinny’. For a good bass you need a tight seal in the ear canal from the bud and dad to say these really don’t measure up!
When in the gym I seem to be adjusting them and pushing back in every 5 minutes between my weight sets. Running was a nightmare with them! And yes before you think I didn’t put them in right I have ensured I did the ‘twist and lock’. Even when to a mirror in gym abs ensured I twisted and locked them but they just don’t fit well. Maybe it’s my ears.. who knows. But I tried all adapters that came with it but still no joy. I even purchased some Truly Wireless tips but these were even worse fit then before!
In summary, pros for me where:
- loved the idea of the battery case and 48 hours charging.
- they paired very easily to my iPod Nano device
- no loss of sounds, I did have to resync the left one once as it was crackling but after this was all fine.
Cons for me:
- kept falling out / becoming loose from the ear canal
- I had to readjust them every 5 minutes.
For me personally these would be great just to have at home or in the car listening to music. But if trying to do any intense sport or gym these just didn’t feel secure enough in the ear.
I have now filled a returns to Amazon for these :-(
