Man, those look sweet. A little out of what I think I should spend, though! Gah! :p
Of all my TWS earpnones, the Track Air+ is #1 on my list considering both fit/comfort and overall realism of sound. The recent firmware update nudged them to first place ahead of both my Mavin Air-X and Jabra 75t.

Got some Tin T4 today to pair with my BT20s. This is my favorite combination yet. No hiss and enough power.

This is a really nice sounding dynamic driver iem for the money. Slight V shaped with decent lows and crisp clear highs.

The kxxs seemed to need more power than the bt20 offers. The tfz no3 is a really fun sounding combo but they lean toward basshead. The T4 strikes a nice balance between the 2.

I think hifi80sman was referring to the 650 klipsch not the Track Air. In any event another vote in favor of the Track Air but they are just too expensive to justify.

Of course. i'm looking for some closedback BT cans myself. i could get the ES100 and use them w my pM3 which i've considered, but i'd also like ANC. Thinking of trying out the MW65 since can get them for $374.99 Or repurchasing the M4u 8 for $299. Wish i hadn't sold those...
I have not been overly impressed with M&D's over the ear cans. The seem overly warm to me. I think there may be better options. You could grab a Mobius for example if you could live without ANC. I'd take that every day over the MW65.

How's volume controlled with UTWS1?
The control scheme on the Fiio utws1:

1 right click - raise volume
1 left click - lower volume
2 right click - pause music playback
2 left click - activate assistant
Press and hold right for 2s - skip track
Press and hold left for 2s - previous track
Press and hold either side for 5s will power the side that's pressed.
Press in off state for 2s to power on.

It powers down automatically after about 5 mins when not connected to any source.

the Mifo o7 suddenly become more interesting.. the small case, smaller earpiece, and the call quality is surprisingly good compared to other TWS he had demoed

Was there something recently about a FW update for the Lypertek Tevi? Thinking of a first purchase of the decade :)

No, still no volume control.



Unfortunately not possible.
Bummer. Thanks for sharing everything you have about these up to this point, the BA are very enjoyable with classical, jazz and blues imo. and soundtracks as well.

Problem is that the Mobius aren't really portable, they are quite big and the battery life is very bad when using LDAC.

Though I appreciate the pace of innovation in the chi-fi tws space, I think I need to invest in the following scenario to quell the constant browsing of this thread.

- take back my rooted pixel 4 xl from my son.
- install viper4android
- pickup a minidsp ear
- calibrate my current tws acquisitions to the harman target
- check back in this forum in a year from now and see if a totl-like tws emerges (one that compares favorably to wired iems)

Anyone already try this?

The T5 II and the T5 Sport sound interesting for around a $200 price point (they'll go on sale, so I'll probably wait for that), but no damn way I'm paying $649 for a pair of TWS with ANC. AI? Sounds more gimmick than reality. I could get some seriously legit cans for that. If I'm looking for ANC and TWS, the APP sound good enough and are comfortable for mobile purposes. I like the XM3 as well, not to mention the upcoming Sennheiser MTW 2, which looks to have ANC.

Do you have any info on the MTW 2?

It doesn't have an app George, so no firmware update here.
