I had bought two pairs of these when they were on clearance at Target a few months ago for $30 for my wife and I. Ended up returning them. Both pairs had the same problems:

Volume way too low.
Slow to pair after initial pairing.
Poorly designed charging setup is proprietary and felt like you were going to break it.
Flat cable felt extremely cheap and the slack adjustment thing kept popping off.

You might be happy for $30, and I was willing to overlook most of those problems but the volume being too low was a deal breaker.
They have their use case. I sometimes need to have one ear free, so hanging this in my shoulder is better than having to find the case, shoving a wireless bud in my pocket, or misplacing it altogether. I have wireless and for $30 I'd like to have these as well for work.
For awareness, both Tarah and Tarah pro only support the SBC codec. Their X4 (and older X3) supports both SBC and AAC codec.

So if you are listening to music that's encoded in AAC codec it will cause some loss in fidelity due to re-encoding. E.g. if you are listening to music stored in the default AAC format on iPhone. Or even on Android if you are listening to a streaming service that uses AAC, such as YouTube Music or Apple Music.

Guys... Once you go true wireless, you won't want these semi wireless earbuds. I have both and the Jaybirds are no longer being used.

My exact reasoning for still having corded BT headphones. I work in an office and being able to pop these out and drop on my shoulder is much better than digging for the case or putting a single bud into a lint pocket lol.

Other than the longer battery life and cord material are these essentially the same thing as the Tarah Pro? Or does the pro have better drivers?

Edit: Seems like they do have a little different specs. Specs seem the same as the x4.

Thanks for the info. Mine are still in the box from the target deal. They are a back up when my X3 die. Sounds like a better test them out or maybe just flip them on eBay

Yeah. The lack of codec support is disappointing. The Tarah pro is supposed to be their flagship product. Compared to X3/X4 they should have added support for more codecs. Not removed them.

I'll disagree with this. I rarely use my Bose Soundsport True Wireless buds. The frequency with which the left earbud disconnects from the right is far too often and incredibly annoying.
