Within a month the sound in the right earbud stopped working. And from my research this seems to be a recurring issue. However the sound quality is amazing, although a little quiet.

Pros

  • Sound quality
  • Battery life

Cons

  • Durability

Fit

In-ear

In-ear

The fit of the earbuds.
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

18g

14.6g

We consider a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to carry. A lower weight is also an advantage for home appliances, as it makes transportation easier, and for many other types of products.
