I saw you bought the bt20s pro earhooks. I also just got mine, I bought the .75mm-S 2pin and it fit my ZAX connector.

As you can see, it is more secure with the S model than the regular. I have ordered another pair for the matte black pair.

Does the male end of the ear hooks fit the female end of the .75 2-pin S?

Wondering if the BT20S connector side is a standard QDC type 2-pin, which would mean making custom ear hooks easier.

At this point I feel like we should intervene and share some addiction resources.. :D
Interestingly, while working (home office at this point), I need to maintain some awareness (deliveries, wife, kids, etc.), so I'll go with the Sport. At the gym or traveling (when that opens up legitimately again), the QC is my choice. Not a big fan of always on ambient mode, as it adds noise to the audio driver directly. Certainly, ambient when I need it on is great to have, but I prefer natural openness if I need constant active awareness.

Almost. Does the shrouded 'S' version fit over the oval?

Basically does the top fit over the bottom in this pic?
It will fit the transparent part, but not the white part.

Yeah I've been looking forward to some earphones lighter on the stethoscope effect as well.

What's this thing about TWS microphones and direct sunlight? Similar to the Jabees Firefly Pro, the TaoTronics 94 cuts the mic feed when exposed to direct sunlight, and I can feel a thump in my ears when it does this (not sure if it's physical or not). Galaxy Buds+ doesn't do this but users have reported it shutting down in direct sunlight.

What’s the sound like with the BT20s Pro? I have a couple of the BT20s and thinking about getting the Pro, if there is any sound improvement. Are there any benefits sound wise? Thanks.

Well, I went ahead and did it. The Bose Sport are semi-open, similar to the originals, which is what I was expecting. They are lighter and are VERY comfortable. Sound is very similar, however, there is a greater sense of space due to the semi-open nature. They were obviously designed to maintain some awareness, which is a scenario I can use them for. My wife tends to feel the need to talk to me when I'm listening to music, so these will work for those cases. :)

How do they match up sound wise?

Very close. The QC sound a bit fuller with a little more impactful bass. The Sport sound slightly more spacious with the sound a little more outside the headspace. They both sound great. Keepers and at the top of my TWS list.

So the Sport would be semi open like the QC20 and the QC closed ? Or is it just hard to tell because for the QC because of always on ANC/Ambient ?

Sound wise, the pro has higher output with less floor noise (less hiss). The pro is a "true" tws than the bt20s. You don't have to press the button on each to turn it on/off, the case makes charging easy, they improve the connection between the modules (with the bt20s, sometimes they won't sync with each other especially if you have been using only one side and decided to use the other one later), in the bt20s there are two bluetooth name (trn bt20s L and R) wherr with the pro there is only one name (trn bt20s pro), the earhook is changeable so you don't have to risk you IEM connector if you like to change IEM.
