    Going fully Wireless IEMs. Too soon? Or are we there yet?

    Thanks for the feedback on the MW08 (thought about picking those up as well). I just picked up the XM4 and am trying to get a good fit. The L tips seem to work the best, so long as a smash them down first. Compared to the XM3, the build of the XM4s are definitely better and feel well built...

    A little late to the party, but thanks for the feedback. I just ordered a pair today for order pick up at Best Buy, so we'll see! I had the PI3 when it was on sale at Costco and thought it sounded great, however, the design was a bit fussy with fit, so I ended up returning it. If the PI5...

    I've been waiting for B&W to release a TWS that sounds like the P7W, which are STILL one of my favorite headphones. Looks like I'll be waiting a bit longer.

    Just got around to pulling the trigger on the MTW2. So far, so good. Does anyone know, precisely, what the "High-End Sound Tuning" does? It seems as though it may be hardware based, given it notes battery life is impacted. Enjoying them so far with "High-End Sound Tuning" activated. Sitting...

    I returned my GB Pros for the same reason. They don't sound bad by any means, but they definitely sound "regular". Also, with audio off and ANC on, a whooshing sound began to occur in the right earbud.

    I originally purchased them when they were $150+ and enjoyed mostly everything about them except for the fit (at the gym) and some mixed feedback as it relates to phone calls. That being said, I enjoyed the sound, just the quirks at that price point turned me off. For $20 bucks or so? I'll...

    They look super sexy, especially compared to V1. https://www.cambridgeaudio.com/usa/en/products/headphones/melomania-touch

    Comfort/Sound combination is absolutely fantastic. I still think pure audio quality goes to the JBL Club Pro+, however, after a few hours, the plastic does make my ears a bit sore and I need a break. I can wear both the QC and Sport earbuds all day long. That being said, I do crave the Bose...

    I'm pretty sure 15 months is out of warranty, but hey, customer service-wise, never hurts to see if they're willing to do it, even if it's a deeply discounted cost. Are you still using the MTW in your rotation? There are some great options out there now that won't break the bank.

    Looks like the same shell & case variant as the Cleer Ally Plus but with better specs and full touch controls. Very intriguing, as I was initially looking at the Cleer a while back.

    I am enjoying the JBL more than the Bose. The Bose are great, but the JBL sound more "hi-res". Plus, the EQ is very customizable and the drivers can handle whatever you throw at them. Given the 75t is really good and some say sound better, I'm a little lukewarm on the 85t, especially given I...

    No, there is no multi-point. They auto connect via AAC when I pair them with my Galaxy phone. No aptX.

    Obviously, I for giving anything a try! If you have no issues with returning it, then it's worth a shot. They have a clear presentation with some tasteful low-end. ANC is not that great, but at least does something if you need it in a pinch.

    Haven't tried the 85t. I'd say the ANC is "good" and is lesser than Sony, Bose, etc. but better than the MW07 Plus. I used it while driving (I know, I'm "bad") and it took away much of the road noise from my SUV, so listening to music was enjoyable.
