Fiil t1 pro. Now I understand what the praise is all about. Clear sound without being harsh and the bass sounds fluid. Natural timbre. The app is useful. A very minor issue is that I wished the voice prompt for changing between ANC off/on/ambient mode can be louder as it is quite soft
You managed to get the app to run? Android I guess? And did they send you extra tips, or are those yours? I am actually happy with the large size that were in the box. And yes, they sound amazing, as long as you don't walk / run :D

I managed to get the chinese app to run on my Samsung note 20 ultra without issues. I bought it from a physical shop and the seller was kind enough to give me a few sets of extra tips including a pair of foam ones. I'm not noticing any issue using them while walking. What issues did you encounter?

Had a wild hair and picked up the Devialet Gemini. Zero issues so far outside of that it took me three tried to update the right earbud but it did work. I must say, the sound is just sick. Wide soundstage and a more lively than my MTW2's. Bass hits hard. Still having issues with finding the right earbud tips. Case isn't as large as I thought it would be. No volume controls. Really hope they add them with a firmware update. ANC is very very good. Up there with the Sennies as long as you have a great seal.

New here. Been following the thread ever since I bought the unfortunate Cambridge Melomania, now returned. Just couldn't deal with all the connection issues and since it wasn't any step up in sound (too bass heavy) compared to the Technics (my favorite) or Lypertek (2nd favorite) then I had no reason to keep struggling to get them connected to my phone.

Any one else have luck with theirs?

The best seal I got is with XELASTEC tips. My main issue with those is that they I can hear them deform when I work my jaw (eating etc.)
I have seal issues with SpinFits - I can get them to seal but it takes a lot of work and patience every time in one ear.

XELASTEC also has a warping problem that I've never experienced with any other tips.

I think it's a charging issue. You have to ensure the red light turns on when placing them in the case. I have to make sure of that.

You also have to wait for them to connect. What I do now is take out just one bud (the one that is paired which happens to be the left one), wait for it to connect, then take out the 2nd one from the case. It seems to be working well so far.

What size X tips did you get? I’m using the large OEM right now. A little shallow and I have the same issues as you with the SF.

Typical runner's THUD on each foot fall, amplified by very much sealed earholes :) Happens with most TWS that seal well.

Actually, I love the M1s. Don’t hear them bass heavy and connection issues have gone away with FW updates. However, I truly only favor them using the OEM foam tips, so I managed to secure the larger of CA’s foamies (they only made two sizes). With foam, they sound great and I also am a fan of click not touch. Having said that I also just bought the Melomania Touch, which at $149 are $70 more than the M1 (Anazon price). The Touch sound is a bit better, but some charging issues. Not sure I will kerp them or not.
Oops. Are you talking M1 or Touch? There are two Melomania models.

The t1 pro sounds more balanced than the earfun. The earfun has this persistent bass which can be distracting. What the t1 pro gets right is that the high/mid/low frequencies are well tuned without over/under emphasis, so even if I try to nitpick on the sound quality, it is hard to find one frequency which sounds excessively overdone or recessed. The bass quality sounds so fluid that it sounds almost as if it came from full sized headphones rather than a tiny driver.

I'm unable to use ANC or ambient mode with only a single bud. There's skip back track on the t1 pro which is missing on the earfun. The app for the t1 pro is also massively useful.

Not sure about the bitpool thing as I've never really looked into it.
Bitpool can be tested if you have an Android phone. Get the btsnoop.log file from your Android phone (you may need to extract it using ADB via USB connection). Then upload your file to this tool.

Still haven't heard any news about the Buds Pro. I asked one YouTube reviewer who responded that he just found Windows 10 Bluetooth too tedious to use with too much latency compared to mobile. My experience has been the opposite with my BT5.0 laptop - latency is typically better than Android, such that casual games are fine.

don't have the T1 Pro but have the T1XS/T1X, and not my favourite for jogging as well. I can mostly ignore the thud from footsteps but not the most enjoyable since gotta push the volume louder. :joy: the fit is really secure and has above average passive isolation for TWS though. not sure if anyone encounters this too since it might just be my ears, but the sound signature changes slightly when i'm looking straight ahead vs when i'm looking down on the ground.
