I have been using these for about 8 hours of listening now and it has been a love/hate relationship.
-You can toggle sound isolation on the earbuds by long pressing either bud for 3 seconds. It really does work. I could hear myself shuffling pages with sound isolation disabled and could not when enabled.
-answer call call/end call pause music, skip tracks
-activate voice assistant with two presses
-re-chargeable charge case
The charge case which boasts 48 hours of charge capacity for the buds
The quality of the charge case and the cable supplied
The sound when you have a good fit eartip
Google voice assistant… I walked away from my source and was able to use voice to turn up the volume with google on my device.
I launched google maps and directions using voice, the music slightly lowers when turn commands are given in stereo, very nice
The app is a nice feature with 5 equalizer presets. equalizer is almost necessary or they will sound tinny I don’t use this and prefer a full equalizer in (right photo) which is pre-loaded on my phone.
connectivity is fast and signal distance is very good
What I dislike (mildly hate)
the button on the earbuds. the only way you can tell if it has been pressed is if something happens. there is no feeling of a click. see below for update
double pressing for google assistant, it works only sometimes and maybe it is because I can’t tell if I pressed it.
The eartips are terrible, very short and thin. I had a hard time finding a combo that would allow good sound and keep the earbuds from falling out of my ear. I have several aftermarket tips that allowed greater sound but they made the earbuds stick out farther from my ear and they would not fit the charge box so to charge I would have to remove the tips to charge them.
I ended up using the largest tip and the surrounding jacket without a hook and they stay pretty good. see below for update
You can’t lay down on your side without blocking the signal or pressing the button.
The far right tip in below photo is the Zolo large and it is the same diameter as the far left which is my favorite memory foam tip. The zolo is shallow to allow the bud to hide a bit into your ear but it doesn’t with my ears the tip just sits at the outer portion of my ear canal and it doesn’t allow for as deep of base effect
Notice the little lights below indicating charge
Overall I would have no problem recommending these earbuds to friends or family as long as the price is south of $100 the biggest selling feature being the charge case and sound quality
After another two days of use I have determined that I like them even more now. I have gotten used to the amount of pressure needed to activate commands and it is now almost flawless. I still have some issues launching google with presses but that may be a google issue in itself. I never have signal loss with my Android Bluetooth 5
The earbud fit has become much better for me now with the combination of the stock rubber large tip and I use them Naked (no rubber jacket) behind the tip. They now feel very nice and when the music stops I sometimes forget to take them out of my ears.
I have them paired to my laptop now and was shocked when I took my Zolo’s out of the case today, popped them in my ear and pressed the button by accident and they launched my spotify app and started playing a tune. I have never used my spotify app with these before so this seemed weird but awesome to me. I can just pop them in my ears press the button and not have to touch my device.
