Anything better than TOZO NC9 Bluetooth earbuds for exercise?
I'm looking at a pair of wireless earbuds (and also a small mp3 player) for running working/out.
I've hear some good things about TOZO and the TOZO NC9 look pretty good.
The only feature it doesn't seem to have that I would prefer is IPX8 instead of 6, but honestly I doubt I will be doing much swimming with them - as long as they can deal with sweat and occasional rain.
I'm not necessarily tied to the earbud style - but I think I prefer them because the hooks do tend to hurt my ears after a bit. Also, definitely want something where I can use only one earbud at a time because I will likely sleep with one in listening to books.
I also like the transparent mode idea of the NC9 so you can hear outside sounds.
Good battery life is a plus.
I'm definitely not an audiophile, so I won't be too stuck up about the sound. As long as it is decent, it isn't worth me spending considerably more to go from a 7.5 to an 8+.
Can anyone give me their experience with this model or alternative options I might explore. Not looking for Apple and preferring to stay under $100 (and closer to $50 if possible).
