    To me the Sony sounded better than the Samsung. The Sony had more detail, and separation in the sound, they were very nice, but I stuck with Samsung because of better battery life, nice touch controls, sweat proof and no drop outs. I noticed in the latest firmware update for the Iconx 2018 my sound quality changed, it is better even though they do not mention anything about sound quality changes in the firmware. I never tried the Bose, too big and I like my ear buds with a full seal for better sound so I didn't even bother with them.

    I bought some Zolo Liberty from Amazon recently for £50 - I'm pleasantly surprised by them. So far no real issues with connectivity to my Pioneer 30R, Sound is acceptable for commuting. I had some cheapo chinese ones in the past that were pretty rubbish, also had the Trinity Air from Kickstarter which were unusable. For something as cheap (in this game at any rate) as these, I'm happily impressed.

    Did you send the Air back to Trinity?
    A close friend received 2 pairs and they are both garbage.

    Didn't bother sending them back - I emailed back and forth a few times when it looked like they were going to rectify the issues but it never happened, I think I ended up throwing them in the bin. I ended up calling it a day with Trinity after that. As you said, Air was just garbage and unfit to be sold - I didn't like the excuses that came from Trinity once they did eventually get sent out either (some nonsense about water content in people's bodies). I realise BT earphones have shortcomings, but the Air was a waste of money and complete cr@p.

    I had the exact same issue. 3 months of back and forth.

    I even sent them my unit, which they then sent back several weeks later with no fix. Go figure! Though they said it had been

    Never again with those crooks

    Took the plunge on the PSBs. Will report back. Hoping for excellent SQ.

    Planning to do the same myself. If they are anything close to the PSB M4U4 it will be a winner.

    Are there wireless headphones which are "always on" and ready to be connected. When i'm in the office and close to the headphones, i want them to connect automatically to my phone and when i leave and come back, they should reconnect automatically.
    I guess this is science fiction as it would require some massive battery :)

    Well, this isn't going well with the PSB. I can't get them both to play together. Apparently, zero customer support as well. They are supposed to connect to one another automatically but I can't seem to make it happen. They will each pair with the phone separately but they won't pair with each other. Quick start manual offers virtually no help. Just wasted an hour of my life trying to get these to work.

    Oh, sorry to hear that.
    In order you get support you will need to log in to their website and create a ticket online.
    That was my experience with them and they were quick to reply.

    Thanks. Really frustrated. The "Quick Start" guide is garbage. There is no explanation as to how to reset them. Both are trying to connect to the phone and they both do connect but only 1 plays music at a time. Also, there is no charging case, just a USB with a Y selector. Expected more for $149. I have tried calling and leaving messages but no call back yet. I attempted to start a ticket and got a "experiencing a high amount of delays" message. Not acceptable.

    Quick update: finally got a person at PSB to call me back. The headphones had to be reset to get them to pair which of course makes perfect sense but wasn't mentioned anywhere in the manual. So their customer support was great. Called me back twice. Had to check with the actual designer on how they work (manual is still "in development"). First impressions are very solid. Sound is sweet. Nice and clear and punchy with some bass boost. I'd call it a very fun sound signature with plenty of volume. Similar to the Bose. Light years ahead of the Jaybird Run which I sold on ebay today. Fit seems stable and secure but I haven't tried exercising yet. I'd put the SQ up there with Bose and the Beoplay. Very impressed and these isolate fully so they will have different usages than the Bose. Will report back as I use them to run and to see if there are any cutouts. I still think the lack of a charging module sucks a bit but maybe that's the tradeoff to keep the cost down. And the pairing process is very finicky.

    That’s awesome. PSB sound signature is mostly natural, musical and boosted bass. Usually they try to mimic a loud speaker type of sound. These guys know what they are doing, it’s too bad you had to go through the frustration of the initial setup.
    I’m planning to place an order as well and pick mine up on Saturday or Sunday.
    Just a thought, can you get a small power bank for on the go charging? If it’s possible it might be the cheapest and easiest way as a workaround.
    The rep at Best Buy told me that they don’t have a charging module because the battery it much better than Sony or Bose.

    Really enjoying the sound signature on these. They are definitely a gym focused set of earphones which was clearly their intended purpose. Ample bass and volume but they still seem crisp up high. Not muddy at all. Probably more well rounded than the bose due to the seal and isolation - these would definitely work as daily drivers. Sound is more natural and less processed - not necessarily good or bad - just different.
