Thanks for the replies guys. Battery is so important since most are now going on 10hrs.

T10 or the M10??
T10. I should be getting them this week. $39 on Amazon right now.

Stax TWS earbuds. Not likely to have an electrostatic driver, but hope it is not just Edifier rebrand.

Of course it would be. Mind you, some of the TWS IEMs I've tried have been pretty good.

My Nuarl N10 Pro arrived few days ago. was surprised my local dealer in Australia stocked them on Jap release date. got it the next day matching the YEN retail price. Not sure if other dealers have them in stock but you can find the Aus dealer link on the Nuarl dealer list.

Didn't have much time to listen to them. but my initial impressions are it has much larger sound stage than the N6 Pro. One of the widest sound stage TWE i've listened to. The sound stage expands about 5cm-7cm outside your ear. the N6 Pro sound stage is around the base of your ear.

The sound presentation is more cold analytical. Compared to the N6 Pro it sounds colder brighter. N6 Pro has a warmer forward vocal presentation while the N10 Pro has more detail and the vocal doesn't seem to be forward like the N6 Pro. with the wide sound stage the separation and positioning of the instruments are fantastic.

I had issues with the eartips. while i usually use the spiral dot on most of my buds but it seems to leak sound on the N10 Pro. Had to use the foam tip that came with it to have a proper seal and boost up the bass. If you look at the earpiece design below the earbud stem is shorter than the N6 and the Sony so it doesn't reach deeper inside your ear. If i press the earbuds into my ear i feel there is a significant bass increase. with the stock foam tips the bass is about the same as the N6 Pro. might try some longer foam tips for a extra boost. The sound quality definitely is better than the N6 Pro...unless you prefer warmer vocals.

The size is to the larger side. the charger case is much longer too. the buds are about the same length as the N6 but its much thicker so it will stick out. its still smaller than the sony though.

Haven't played with the App or tested the ANC yet.
According to a Japanese review, if you set the app eq to "Warm" (perhaps the wrong translation?) then you get the N6Pro equivalent vocal presentation.

as a display of typical human nature, although I'm currently satisfied with my TWS collections and the BT20S Pro, i still purchased this Tronsmart Onyx Free anyway, out of curiosity :sweat_smile:
aside from the less than stellar mic quality (testing it with Voice Recorder), i really like this as a total package. Balanced sounding, soft clicky buttons, velvety rubber coating on the case, small case and unit size, able to use regular tips, full control, and APTX (for those who care).
here's size comparison to the Gbuds

Mind letting us know the actual battery life?


I was disappointed in the Spunky Beats only lasting me around 3hrs instead of 6-7 claimed.

Granted I don't have a phone that currently does TWS+, even though it's SoC is capable of it (Damn you Google!).

I'll give it a battery test and report to you again later

You can see the Edifier logo on the earbud...

WOW. Just looking back at all the posts/pics in this thread. I was gone for a few months but decided to check back in and I'm glad to see y'all have not slowed down. TW has come a long way and is still changing by the week.

That being said, I have the MPOW M5 and love them. The only issue I have is that when I am listening to only one earbud, I am still getting stereo mode output, so some of the sound is missing on some songs. My question is does anyone know of a TW set that has a very similar signature to the M5, but plays mono mode sound when only listening to one earbud?

Thanks

Hey guys I bought my first pair of earbuds a few days ago, the Boltune BT-BH024 and they sound great and I have just ordered some memory foam eartips, as the silicon tips slightly hurt my ears after wearing them for a short time and they also slip out, only a few milimeters but enough to effect the sound quality....So hopefully I'll notice a improvement with the foam tips, but apparently the foam tips wear out quickly, just how quickly are we talking about?

These are the tips I have ordered in medium..... https://www.amazon.co.uk/i-Planet-Memory-Eartips-Earphone-S-Small-Black/dp/B07WJ8WVFM/ref=sr_1_3?crid=K0ZHIBJ2HIAD&dchild=1&keywords=ikko+i+planet&qid=1598614870&sprefix=ikko+,aps,155&sr=8-3&th=1

Just almost ordered the new Bose Quietcomfort Earbuds, which my Paypal account lets me pay off over 9 months without interest. I backed out at the last minute. No reviews at all yet. Am I nuts? Haha. Still am fine with the Melomania, Blon 03 (using the ES100) and the L2P Pro. Enough already!

Of course, 2-3 stellar reviews and I am back to the Best Buy purchase page (Bose says 4-5 week wait). Of course, no volume control and no track skipping ability could be deal breakers.

They'll probably last a good long while. These don't deteriorate like the Comply foam does.

They also have a 'skin' on the outside that helps keep them easy to clean/wipe off.


My Shure black foam (olives) have a similar design with a skin over the foam. That pair I've had since 2012, although it never got daily useage just occasional.


Fyi fixed your link (supposed to post without extra identifying info per forum rules). :)

Anyone spend time with the new Sennheiser CX 400 TWS? Price seems high for what they are, but there's not much else new out there and apparently money burns a hole in my pocket.
Almost had that burning feeling and the N10 Pro was $220 shipped. Just held off. My JVC does fine and my Philips headphones I really like. What I really need is an open model more than anything and not another sealed in ear so I held off on the Nuarl. Though the Nuarl would be the choice over the CX400 BT giving quite a bit more for not much more money. They seem to sound the same out of the box - big stage and a more toward flat sound with detail.

Seems it is the Edifier but, IIRC, these are not sold but an included gift when you buy a certain STAX headphone.
