Would you share some TWS which fits 20-40USD range and has decent SQ? I have Syllable S101 but I do find them mediocre, can I find anything better SQ wise withing this price bracket?
Fiil t1x. It is $33.99 on amazon right now.

In 4+ years ordering from AliExpress, this switcheroo is a first, and I am pretty certain this is a deliberate attempt of ‘getting away with it’ ... so far seller offered me a 5$ refund. Which I refuse. Send real thing or full amount back! Thought these kind of shady practices were a thing of the past.

I am using this foam tips and I just used my japanese kitchen knife and cut it about 3/4 of the length. If you have used newbee foam tips, I find this foam tips to be better because the surface of the tips is glossy instead of matte texture found in newbee. I find this to seal better than the newbee.

I was also looking at "glossy" foam tips as I liked the version that came with the Jabra Elite Sport for isolation (and grip) and in fact it seems that "New Bee" also make some : https://www.amazon.co.uk/Replacement-New-Bee-Earbuds-4-5mm-6-3mm-S-M-L/dp/B07RXN1HGG that look a lot like the FEYCH except they're only available as a S/M/L combo kit.

Using Apple AirPods Pro for traveling, commuting, watching youtube etc. The sound quality is also good but the key feature is convenience. Practically stopped using my 3.5mm Shure IEMs after APP.

Appears to be a cheap (excuse me, I mean, inexpensive pair) of tws that you've purchased. So how do you know what you received (by accident, or on purpose), is worse than what you ordered? Might it be better, or a mistake in your favor? How high can expectations be for $20. bucks? Did you try them? Just curious.

What I ordered were the Whizzer T2, which scarbir rates 4/5 in sound quality. They usually sell for 35$ on AliExpress, but I thought I found a bargain (I got lucky before with the Whizzer B6, which usually sell for 70+$, but I snagged a pair for 44$ and received the real deal)

What I received is the same model as the Alwup i9 which I already own in Black, they usually sell around 20$ and are only OK. Scarbir describes them correctly as cheap looking and only 3/5 in sound and 2/5 in comfort, build, battery life ...

Looks like the 1more ANC releases on 1/28 in the US. They are available in stock on HiFi Go as well. I was thinking of giving them a run but I can't find any kind of sweat proofing referenced on the website. Anyone see anything about that anywhere? That would be a deal breaker.
