Larciel is posting incorrect information: it doesn't take 9 seconds to connect and you can use either earbud independently.

I have this and while performance is very good, two very annoying things kept me from using it daily. I got new Samsung bud+

1. If you want to use just one you MUST use left one. No way around it. VERY annoying.

2. Takes about 6-9seconds to turn on.
Lets say You're on a call and want to transfer to hands-free. When you plug this into your ear, you get the AI saying
" Bluetooth connected...." PAUSE
"Battery one hundred percent"

While that 9 second goes, you can barely listen to other person and you have to wait until it is finished.

Having said that, $99 is a killer price. But there is a reason why price went down significantly!!!
wait a minute.... I'm using only my right one right now, no issues at all... software update probably?

I love these. I'm not a audiophile but I started listening to music more after getting these. The noise cancellation works really well. I'm looking on how to connect them with game consoles but I don't think that's possible without buying another device to connect the two. I use them at the gym too but I don't think they are rated to be sweat or water proof. No problems though and they never fall out. Battery life is fantastic and I bought a third party case to protect the charging case which I think looks great even if it's bigger than most cases. Overall for $100 an amazing deal imo I bought a warehouse deals 20% white pair for $170 last year.

Based purely on sound quality, and if you don't care about noice cancelation, how much better are these than the Jabra Elite 65t? I got those for under $50 refurbished, would you say these are 2x as good at $100?
same question

Thank you for sharing your experience with everyone. Do note that waiting for 6-9s is not normal. I've never waited longer than 3s to connect to the earbuds.
I do have other issues with the earbuds, one being its compatibility with laptops and pc are very bad, choppy audios when connected to windows laptop.
It's mostly an excellent bud, albeit on the expensive side. However with this price it's definitely a good deal.

For protocol nerds (like me) these don't support Aptx codecs, and more surprisingly (to me anyway) they don't support Sony developed LDAC either. They only seem to support SBC and AAC (according to this: https://helpguide.sony.net/mdr/wf...89890.html). I guess maybe it doesn't matter with this level of device, perhaps they did this to keep the processing silicon simple and efficient. I also have WH-1000XM2 and XM3's, and pretty sure I can tell the difference between SBC and LDAC, but the difference is minor even with the over ears.

I bought these new when they first came out, like them a lot, but ultimately returned them. Here's my summary of experience:

Pros:
For an in-ear headset, the ANC works very, very well. It really helped minimize the very loud screeching train during my commute. The sounds are also very good (I'm not an audiophile, but I've used enough other brands to at least tell this set offers better and sharper sound). Battery life + charging pod are great (charges w/ usb-c).

Cons:
It's bulkier than its competitors, such as airpods. It takes ~5 seconds to turn on and sync with phone or laptop (very annoying when using for work or taking calls when the headset isn't already on). The mic captures a lot of background noise if you're trying to use it for calls, especially in a noisier environment (e.g., open space office). My ears felt fatigue when they were in my ears for extended periods (more than a couple/few hours a day).

Ultimately, I returned them because of two reasons: it caused my ears fatigue/ light pain when worn for extended periods of time, and the mic. To be fair re: my complaint about the mic, I feel this way about even some of the best headsets, including the Bose QC35II and Sony XM1000 (over ear).

I'm currently using the Bose 700 and love it. The 700s ANC for the mic is absolutely needed for those who work in open office and take a lot of calls (e.g., zoom meetings). The 700s are not nearly as comfortable as the QC35II or the XM1000 (over ear) though. Then again, we're comparing apples v. oranges since all three of these are over the ear, versus this in-ear Sony.
Hi there, I'm been using this non stop for last Christmas. for the most par, the caused of your ears fatigue/ light pain when worn it for extended periods of time, I can't help on that one but for the mic capturing a lot of background noise, they fix that last update. now you can remap what you want to do with the touch controls on each earpiece. for example volume: hold it to increase volume and tap it to decrease. for sync issue I can't tell you because I don't have those problems. having said that, the sound, noise cancelling, ambient sound, battery and SONY headphone app... OMG this earbuds are the best hands down. every website put Sony one of the best if not the best true wireless earbuds.

actually no
not for me. I really wanted something else
I bought them in first day and the fit is not good kinda hurts my ears and falling from them tho
so I went to Best buy to get Sony's because I heard they are the best
and oh God the frustration started even while setting them up thay even want pictures of your ear lmao while airpods you just open and thay work right away
in Sony's you skipping music to next one and it changing in one earbud than second later in other
everything is slow on them and this thing that tells you % of battery makes in my opinion those headphones so cheap that I was laughing Everytime on this and to get it worst it tells you in only one ear and the anc on them kinda sucks for me especially if you in rooms

These sound great. Downside is they only support AAC. I personally can tell the difference from AAC to AptX, LDAC

I bought these new as a gift to my cousin last Christmas for $200. I'm wondering how there are so many refurbs. This is a big drop in price in such a short time.
