    Having the cord bounce around, catch on stuff, and generally be annoying on your neck at the gym was enough for me to never want to wear a pair of wireless earphones again. Also, the built-in volume control is heavier than the cord, so they always fall to one side and have to be readjusted. If you're just sitting still, they probably are fine.

    - No cord or phone to drag around at gym; bouncing cord pulling earbuds out while running
    - Not having to thread a cord thru winter jacket
    - Look like a boss talking on a wireless earbud
    - Move around office or home without carrying phone everywhere
    - Walk around house blasting tunes wearing nothing except for earbuds

    Get the cord caught a few times ripping it out of your ears and you'll understand. Cutting the cord is very comfortable. Jaybird X3's cord would get caught on the bench or snagged up on the squat bar etc.

    Don't need $200, just people who want higher quality music.

    Here ya go old fart

    AirPods are useless on a plane. It's why I have a set of beats studio 3 for noise isolation and cancelling. Slept beside a crying baby on a 10 hour flight haha.
    +1 max volume on AirPods you will struggle to hear anything on a plane.

    My beats solo3 do fine (have had a pair sitting on my desk for over a year in the box, just opened them), studio 3 would be awesome. I somehow have accumulated 4 pairs of beats solos, they are like cockroaches.

    On a recent trip to high level when I forgot to bring any headphones on one of those 12 seater planes - I purchased Skullcandy Venue noise canceling headphones. Totally forgot to download my Spotify playlist so while couldn't listen to any music on the way back, just had them on with noise canceling and they helped big time. So I do have as set that does a decent job at it.

    It's just too big with the pouch to travel easily. I typically travel (going on non-work trips) with this Tumi Murse that is barely big enough for my iPad pro, passports, essential documents, phone, wallet and airpods in their case. If I started carrying my over the hear headphones, I'd have to either switch out from that Tumi murse to a backpack or ask the wife to put the case in her purse/carry on and not hear the end of it. So I thought if there is a set of headphones that is as small as the airpods in their case but work like the noise canceling over the ear headphones like my Skullcandy ones then that would be perfect.

    Lol. I know - first world problems. And yes someone said, Airpods are virtually useless on a plane. Had to watch movies with subtitles on my iPad with full volume blast due to not being able to hear everything properly. And this is a regular plane. They would suck even more on those little planes I have to take every now and then when I travel for trials.

    Have you considered carrying a briefcase instead of a murse? God damn man, you are a lawyer not a graphic designer.

    When I am on a holiday, I want to be the farthest thing from a lawyer lol. I used to carry a briefcase but then the holidays started feeling the same fuckin' bullshit as day to day life. lol. But yea, ultimately may not have a choice and revert to a briefcase - I guess I could have a 'holiday' briefcase and never use that for work to make it feel different haha.

    Are the Jabra 65t AAC-compliant? Is lossless audio even a consideration for wireless earbuds?

    The benefit of masks is not known at this time. But we do know it is some non-trivial amount more than zero.

    We also know that the cost of mask use is, essentially, zero.

    So the cost:benefit of mask use is approaching infinity. I'll take that every time. And every time I see someone without a mask, I think they are stupid.

    I've had my Jabra Elite Active 65T for about 6-7 months now. At the $200-ish range, these are pretty damn good. Probably the best in the entry level level range for me (tried Bose, Jaybirds, Sony, Airpods), though there are temporary sound drops from time to time, they are good for sound quality, battery life (4 -4.5 solid hours per charge) and fitment.

    I've also had the Bose ones for a short period and ended up returning them as they didn't fit my ear properly and they were HUGE. They stuck out of my head like Frankenstein bolts. Connectivity is better than the Jabras, but at the end of the day, Jabras are good all around for the price point. They are also cheaper on Amazon and got Best Buy to price match to $215.

    I bought these. Write a review (good or bad) and get a full refund.

    Work pretty damn good for free. Actually helps that they're good for listening to music too!

    Anyone using the Jabra 75t? Likely would be using it for both my personal phone (samsung) and work iphone.

    Well imagine if instead of writing that letter to the editor, she just posts on a car forum for car enthusiasts. That's Kritafo.

    Started with the true wireless and lost one biking due to wind, so I went back to the tethered type. Should have both for different activities.

    I bought some ENACFIRE E18 earbuds some months ago. Either I got a defective set or it's your typical free-for-good-review type China purchase.

    Basically had the same problem as alot of other buyers; connection would keep cutting out and it's definitely not the listed connection distance.

    Dudios free mini earphones, purchased on amazon for $20 with free shipping. I’ve been using it for a month and had no issues, great sound, stays in my ears snugly. Ended up buying another on a few days ago.

    Got these for $20.

    These things are a dime a dozen on Amazon with different brands but they all look the same. They all comes out the same factory and QA sucks. It's luck of the draw, some had good experience, some has bad.

    The touch interface is definitely bad but sounds good enough for working out.
