This matches the BF deal from last Nov. Probably should be about $100 but $150 is reasonable if you need something now. the Zoho Liberty+ (Anker) ones seem cheaper but as a current owner of the GearX, I can say it sounds good, fits well, and has decent functionality. Happy with the purchase even if it seems slightly overpriced.

Thanks for the feedback. I know gen 1 of these had very poor battery. Gen 2 seems well.

Pretty sure you are talking about the previous gen ones. Certainly can't get these ones for that price.

I have these Gen 2 ones and I like them quite a bit. My first completely cordless earbuds after using jaybird bluetooth earbuds for several years. I love them. You have to get used to wearing them for extended periods of time (over an hour) as the pressure points to keep them in your ear are unique for completely cordless. I was hesitant mainly due to battery life and keeping them charged, but the system of keeping them in a charging case has worked well.

I can't say they are twice as good as getting a $80 paid of jaybirds for working out, but if you don't mind shelling out the extra money for higher tech items, I say go for it. I haven't used them much for running, but I haven't had any problems with them coming out of my ears while working out.

Hope this helps.

Easily over 2 hours. I don't typically use them longer than that at any given time. Think they are speced for 5 hours.
