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

    Okay, so I'm happy with the Senns, and getting sick of the bravado and name-calling in this thread, so unsubscribing. Have fun y'all.

    On android they only show up as a single device.

    Lots of people talking about cancelling the Senns and getting something else. Be careful. You really should hear them first.

    Some additional feedback on the Sennheisers after my first commute: 1. Pairing: I took them out of the case this morning and they didn't reconnect. I couldn't pair them - in the end I had to 'forget' them from my phone and repair. Quite annoying. Thankfully it worked on my 3rd attempt, but...

    They don't. Only real wireless option for the IE80s is the PlusSound BT.

    It could just be a general fit and 'ears are weird' issue. So far I've found the Senns to be massively comfortable - to the point where I almost forget they're there at all. The Jabras, on the other hand, did feel a bit achey after 2 hours' of constant use. That said, I've not worn the Senns for...

    TBH, I wouldn't expect much. The most predictable app update release note in the iOS or android Appstore is "bug fixes and performance improvements". They probably fixed a minor bug in the phone app....

    The point he's making is that a lot of this is audiophile nonsense, that's been prevalent for years and in many cases is utterly absurd. There's a huge amount of selection bias and placebo going on - and that drives peoples' thoughts that they can hear differences, when actually they can't...

    According to the website (https://www.mavinlife.com/) it's 10 hours per charge, and the case has up to 5 charges. Still impressive.

    Lots of us have them. Scroll up a few posts for my comparison with Jabra 65Ts, and back a couple of pages to see comparisons with the Havits, the MWs, and a few others. I think the general consensus is that from a sound quality perspective, they're very very good. The controls can be a bit...

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

    Yeah, so far (limited testing) the touch controls on the Senns are super-finnicky, and trying to differentiate between one-tap and two taps is hard. I doubt I'll use the touch controls much. The transparency mode seemed to work well - less echoey and metallic than the equivalent on the Jabras...

    What do you mean "Eq suggestions"? Are you meaning "what settings should I use?". Surely the answer is "whatever you like the sound of". :) TBH, I thought they sound excellent on the default/flat setting...

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

    That's ridiculous - if you want to increase the volume more than a single 'notch' you'll give yourself a headache! Luckily, I almost never adjust the volume other than on my phone (even with my PlusSound I never used the controls on it) so it's all slightly arbitrary. The only 'on-bud' control...

    I think you're meaning the True Wireless comply tips. Available in the UK here: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Comply-Replacement-SweatGuard-Comfortable-Listening/dp/B0711FBXJW I'll probably be getting some for my Jabras or the Senn MTWs, whichever I end up keeping.

    Yes, the same in the UK - Amazon's return policy is fantastic.

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

    I doubt it. Amazon's cancellation policy is likely their own managed one - I doubt they have the items on sale-or-return from Senn. It's probably more about stock allocation. I suspect that Amazon want a very high number available before they will present stock to the public, because they want...

    Another glowing review for the Senn MTWs. https://thenextweb.com/plugged/2018/11/21/review-sennheisers-momentum-true-wireless-are-the-airpods-upgrade-ive-been-waiting-for/

    BTW, I notice that using the link to the Senn manual, the Smart Control app doesn't appear to be available yet (http://www.sennheiser.com/device-control-app redirects, and there's no download link to Google Play etc). I was going to have a look and see what it offered. For those getting their...

    Interesting seeing all the comments. From my perspective, the Jabras are way good enough, particularly at the cost. The SQ is really good (bass is surprisingly good - listening to Kravitz's 'Sister' that first bass note still kicks well enough, even with flat EQ), and the fit, features and...

    Worth bearing in mind: when I first tried the Jabras yesterday they had terrible hiss - so much so I nearly put them back in the box and returned them. After updating the firmware, any hiss (if there is any) is undetectable. This is with an S7 Edge.

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

    For me, yes, because I had custom sleeves on my IE80s, so they fitted wonderfully. I've had Jabra 65Ts for a day, and impressed so far. Not quite as good sq as the IE80s, but pretty close. No hiss, perfect balance and a good sound profile. The convenience of no wires at all is awesome. That...

    Search for PlusSound BT. I had one for my IE80s until I lost it recently. It was Brill.

    For those who are ordering, really looking forward to hearing your feedback on the Senns. My Jabra 65Ts are waiting at home for me, but handily Amazon have got their extended Christmas return window open - so they can be returned any time up until 31-Jan. Which means that any time between now...

    The point here is the frequency at which BT operates. Walls and doors have almost no effect on it, but water will massively impede bluetooth signals. Human bodies are made up of about 70% water.

    So annoying that the Senns are delayed. If they'd been released today I'd have just ordered them straight off the bat. Now I just have to decide whether I can live with the crappy Samsung headphones I have for a month until they're released.
