      I feel like they could have made it a thirty minute video. I'm sure anyone that is interested in buying something new would love a more in depth analysis of they earphones for better research purposes.

          I got the Otium wireless headphones. Pretty good for 40 bucks. Waterproof, charging case that doubles as a battery to charge your phone. Only complaint I have, is the left earphone is the only one that can be used independently.

                      Everybody's talking about sound quality, but I wouldn't mind average quality if I could just find some headphones that were actually comfortable. I tried 4 different pairs of over-the-ear headphones that were uncomfortable and didn't fit my head. I'm looking into earbuds now to see if there are some that will actually stay in my ear and not hurt me when I laugh or smile.

                                I bought the Raycon E50. I actually loved the sound quality and the case was cool with that magnetic lid. I did return them after a week though. The issue with them was that the left and right ear peice stopped pairing up together when I turned them on at day 3. Raycon's tech support had me do a full reset that took several attempts to get them both working together. Then the same thing continued to happen everyday day after that. Taking 10 minutes or more to get the music going for my work out was unacceptable so they had to go back. I really wanted to like them because when they worked the sound quality was wonderful and they were comfortable to wear and felt secure in your ear. The frustration with them was a deal breaker.

                                                  I have a pair of the jbl free x. It's good for music and sports... but I'm getting a small but noticeable delay in videos... maybe I've got a defective unit. My experience with JBL has always been good, so that's really weird. If anyone has a solution that'd be very helpful

And I understand where you come from. Some of us are OK with bad looks but amazing hardware performance; however, this is NOT a standard especially not when we're talking about WIRELESS earbuds which are the kind of hardware that you'd take on the go and use mindlessly. These products aren't going to replace OR influence your choice on a replacement for your amazing Sennheiser HD800S which you have back home, and sound great but they are too big to go out into the world with them.

                                                                                      Haylou gt1 are the best in the game right now. Trust me. If you're looking for something less than $30 this is where it's at. Do more research before you do a video, american companies ain't paying the TWS game right
