It shouldn’t be that hard for Anker to have sound in both earbuds.
Doesn’t even have to be real stereo, just copy the channel from right to left. (calls aren’t stereo anyway).
Add to that hearing impaired people may hear better with their left ear.
So, a left, right, both option would be great design. This is just not well thought out.
I totally agree. Yet, it’s not an Anker-exclusive issue. For some reason, right ear only seems to be the norm on true-wireless earbuds - my guess is because of a combination of the ear most people hold their phones when talking, plus the call operators and telemarketing people headpieces - though those can be changed.
Still, I guess at least the option should be given, if only to accommodate those who hear better - or at all - on the left ear.
Anker stuff is generally good, but hardly ever great. This is thread is a good example.
Anker is quite pricey so I expect something extra.
I’m not saying Anker is a complete ripoff, because they it’s not, but their products are often not as well thought out as may be expected for the price.
The earbuds having no left/right/both option.
USB hubs have very weak charging capabilities.
That sort of things makes Anker an almost-there brand. Not a buy-blindly brand.
It’s impossible to make every customer happy, especially a moaner like me I understand that.
But back to the charging, it’s not a public secret that lots of users want to charge as fast as possible. But still lots of Anker solutions are sub-par. Something I expect from Chinese $2 stuff but not from Anker price-point.
