i really adore these ear buds and i have had them for a few months and i can assure you that they were worth every penny. i was very impressed at how they handled dolby atmos with special audio, it makes it seem like YOU are in the middle of the music. you can literally point to where all the sounds were coming from, also they have brilliant noise cancellation which come very handy for plane journey’s. but, the inly thing that let me down was the case, not the case it self but just the hing it kept making a small rattle when i push it but, but it’s mostly a minor issue. overall i think this is a great pair of ear buds.

Pros

  • excellent noice cancellation
  • great sound quality (very balanced)
  • the spatial audio is brilliant
  • very comfortable to wear because of the ear tips

Cons

  • great build quality on the buds them self, but was a bit let down by the hing on the case

Not a good Earbuds for the value, mostly for show-offs. By the way, spatial audio is just apple’s way of saying “surround sound”, which is a feature on almost every earbuds and headphones under and over this price, also on all branded car stereos.

Pros

  • High tech
  • Apple build quality
  • ANC

Cons

  • For apple only
  • Limited for Samsung users
  • Uncomfortable
  • No I’m rating
  • Barely average sound quality
  • Control not built on the buds
  • Expensive
  • Have a reputation for show-offs

IPX4

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (Audio Technica ATH-SPORT50BT)

The first number of the IP rating refers to protection against dust, while the second number refers to protection against liquid. E.g. a first number of 6 denotes that it is completely dustproof, and a second number of 7 denotes that the device can withstand full immersion in water.
weight
