I found all the reviews saying the inline remote dragging the right side down to be correct. It gets annoying having to pull the cable even constantly.

Then wear them over the ear. Makes it a non issue, even with the charger on. If you don't want to wear them that way them find a different pair is probably the best advice.

My only issue with the freedoms in general is my tips don't seem to like to stay in when I take them out. Have had them get stuck in my ears a few times now. Have to press them to one side before angling them out. Even friction from being in my bag or pocket has caused them to fall off. Already lost one comply foam. The stepped taper doesn't seem to hold them as secure as the X3's. And these don't come with the comply foams if that's the tip you'd want to use. I bought them because I had a $25 reward cert collecting dust. I would have bought the X3's again if they were $50 though.

I also don't like the cord mgmt clips. They aren't as nice as the X version ones. The 180 degree bend is much sharper and pinches the cable more. Tough to really adjust on the fly and I imagine can stress the cable over time. It's like they cheaper out on the clip design.

I found the cord a lot shorter than the Blue Bud X I have. I don't really like wearing it over the ears. I did notice that with the included Comply tips and the ones I bought for my Bluebuds X that they were more prone to getting loose. I actually sold it and went with some Shure SE215 for now until a company makes some nice comfortable truly wireless earbuds that have no connection problems.

I'll affirm no comply tips was not very happy about that but otherwise very happy with the earbuds. Just use over the ear or cord management and the hanging control doesn't bother you after that. Sound is better than the X3's although battery life is not nearly as good.

Check out the Zolo Liberty from Anker when they come out. They sounded like they'd be the bomb. Could've gotten them via kickstarter for as low as $79 I believe.

They'll be available next month.

I've been following them ever few months. Waiting for reviews. They do look like they jut out of the ear a little more than the iconx though which I'm not a fan of.
