This is the second generation. 2018 has improved Bluetooth streaming at 4-5 hours compared to the previous 1-2 hours. 2018 does not have a heart rate sensor.

Have you tried it while being active like doing cardio or running?

Picked up a Used Like New pair and they came quite dirty. Complained to Amazon and they took another $27 off. Can't complain at all at $100. After a good Clorox wipe they looked good as new. Paired up nice. Transfered music over that played flawlessly. Food some old Shure olive tips that fit well and even fit in the charging case but am picking up the comply foams as well.

After two days and two workouts as well as using casually...

Fit: solid. The medium silicone tips were fine but the Olive foam are more comfy. They don't feel like they'll fall out after two elliptical workouts and a crossfire like workout down to burpees, clean and presses and such.

Sound: as good as my Jaybird Freedoms. Decent enough bass. Highs sound clean. Not crucially listening with these.

Local music: easy to transfer via the pc app or the phone. Plays just fine. Didn't like that it seems to play automatically, but it does stop once connected to my phone or computer.

Bluetooth and signal quality: solid. Walked into a bathroom and was 15ft or so away from my phone. No issues. No left/right dropouts yet. Paired easily with my Spectre and my Note 8.

Charging Case: Like it. Feels like quality. Size is totally fine. Locks down securely. Led's for each earpiece as well as the case. Bluetooth pairing button too which I used for my Spectre. The key is its USB-C. Big big plus over other true wireless buds. Less cables I need to carry.

I used one today to talk on the phone and listen to sports talk while working. My coworker said I sounded just fine. And the solo piece worked well on its own. Popped it back in the case to charge.

I haven't stressed the battery life yet, but so far everything has been great with these.

One small small issue. I took them into the sauna and they lasted about 3 minutes. When they got hot they start beeping and ultimately shut off. My Jaybirds had no problem handling 15 minutes in the heat and then some. Hardly going to pan them though for that.

Another plus with the local music playing is you don't need to have the ability on your watch which makes my Garmin even more of a keeper. I don't need an android wear watch to do it all and require nightly charging which is annoying as F*. My Garmin lasts for quite a while on a charge and has advanced run metrics I don't get from android wear apps. Keep a short Usb-c to usb-c cable around for music transfers and you're good to go. Has to be much quicker than transfer via Bluetooth.

Can also keep a small lipstick like charging bank handy to keep the case charged if you ha e them sitting in your bag. I usually keep things charged in the car in the center console so I'm always topped off.

Might try them on my flight today for movie watching, but I have my Sony noise canceling cans which I imagine will trounce these in isolating along with the N/C.

Hope that helps anyone on the fence about these.
