I just got a pair of Life P2 earphones and although they have been playing relatively well when I’m sitting at my desk at home, I took them out for a walk today and in a period of 30 minutes I experienced 5 sound skip events where the sound stopped for less than a second.

Is it cold dry where you were today? Dry air makes static worse.
If you love polyester clothing, use a fabric softener. At this point I’ll stop as its risks being an infomercial. Did I mention I have smooth soft skin? I use…
