My personal experience with these (also bought them on June 11th) is as follows:
Sound - Fantastic - Clear - Let a buddy who mixes sound regularly check them out, and he's very particular and picky, and he was also very impressed with it's range and clarity.
Bluetooth connection - Fantastic - At my office, where I am surrounded by computers, wifi, etc, I can walk about 20 yards away before the connection starts to suffer, and that is connected to a Galaxy S3 (yes, I still use a 4-5 year old phone). Now, that is open space. When I introduce doors and walls by going around corners in this same environment, the signal suffers after about 15 yards or so. Again, this is fantastic IMO, as I'm not aware of any reason I would normally be further away from my phone than that outside of testing it for funsies.
Fit / Comfort - This is where I expected the downside to be, as the earbuds that you push into your ears have always been my enemy. I was hoping that the various tips and ear wing things would somehow be enough to offset my apparent ear deformity. I finagled with the fit for a lot of time, trying the different wings and bud tips and wearing them for about an hour or so the default way, but couldn't find a way to set it up that remained comfortable. So I gave up on that, and switched to Over the Ear style, which is what I normally have to do. The fit, after again fiddling with different tips and wings (I don't think that's the right word, but..*shrug*), I was able to find a combo that holds it in place and is comfortable so long as I'm not jostling them. However, if I want them to be secure enough for exercise, I have to press them into my ears more, which then becomes uncomfortable any time that I smile. Apparently that changes something in my ear area enough that it creates unpleasant pressure with these pressed in.

So - Standing at my desk at work, couldn't be much happier with these. Fantastic.
But for exercise? If mostly stationary, or low movement exercise, they'd be great/fine FOR ME, but active exercise such as burpees or such, it won't work with the way I am wearing them. Going to be trying the JLab Epic2 next, per TheWirecutter.com's recommendation. [thewirecutter.com]

bought this in the prev deal on 11th. the hype is off the freaking charts on this one.
the sound quality is way below par for me. dont get me started on the bluetooth connectivity.

if you are using indoors you are good. works like expected. for outdoor use i would recommend looking elsewhere.

my two cents.

btw i returned mine.

You know of any better in ear BT headphones in a similar range? Sound and battery life are most important for me.

returned mine as well. they didn't stay in my ears. maybe I have a misshaped head. I needed them for working out and running and I got some plantronics backbeat fit instead and they are perfect for that. sound quality is good enough for me, I'm not an audiophile or understand the difference. sound comes out and I listen to it!

The fit was a common issue with the first generation - It's not your head Smilie From what I've read in the forums most people pick up some Comply Foam tips. I did (with 1st gen) and the fit is great.

problem is the foam ones will deteriorate quickly especially if you are using them to work out and are getting them sweaty. for workout headphones I would have wanted to be able to use the silicone tips but they did not fit. for my use, the design of these do not lend themselves well as an earphone that is going to stay in during movement as well as one that wraps over your ears like the plantronics I bought. these might work for others though just relaying my experience as someone who works out and runs a lot

theres really no excuse for x2 not to fit. they come with 5 or 6 different sized complys as well as several sized plastic clips. you need to spend about 25 minutes sizing the right way per instructions most people probably dont. I personally love the sound quality and used them for many hours on hands free calls as well for 11 months. Mine actually died a few weeks ago within the 1 year warranty, took a charge but wouldnt turn back on. Internet chat with help and RMA process was very easy, just had to email my bestbuy receipt. new pair arrived this week. I thought it would be a nightmare but it was very easy. I paid full retail. Probably wouldnt again but 79 in a cocaine heartbeat especially after their customer service experience.

i used heavily for intense workouts as well. sometimes after enough sweat they come out, show me a headphone that doesnt and Ill buy it.

one thing i will say is for hands free calls they work great but not in the car. I'd often get told I was breaking up. i often take support calls from home and these things kick ass for that purpose.

My Motorola S-11 flex HD's never, ever come out of my ears, and they are way more comfortable than having the string around your neck

I guess it depends what your workout is. I do some wonky stuff like handstand pushups. i will give your model a look though.

Not a fan of these, the biggest reason being that they aren't noise-cancelling. I'm not sure why many of these sports headphones allow everyday noise to enter your ears. Personally it just makes me unfocused during workouts.

Get the foam tips. They make a huge difference.

They are ten bucks or something on Amazon. I can linking anyone is interested.

I wasn't in the market for bluetooth headphones and stumbled upon QCY8 for $13 a while ago. I lost my bose freestyle earbuds at that time and purchased a replacement set and QCY8 off amazon, The sound on QCY8 was on par than freestyle for 1/5th the cost. It stays in the ears quite well and I get about 6+ hours of battery life. I didn't have any bluetooth connectivity issues either like some other people. Has built in volume control (secondary to device volume), mic and track skip/rewind controls.

Search SD for it...usually on sale. Not bad for less than $15....hopefully it gets any cheaper i;ll grab a couple as gifts

Holy crap I looked quick and thought I saw $7.90. Just assumed they were run of the mill bluetooth and I have been waiting to see sub-$10 for a while.
