I did find and link those Chi-Fi ones a few pages back. Might be worth considering, but it's AE...obv won't show up tomorrow via Prime.Seems a bit better this way. I also am trying my magic tips from my soundcore Liberty 2pro that seem to be the only tips that make the Sony and JBL work for me and sensibly they are better on these too. They are just a tiny bit shallower so the tip of the fin floats more and supports against the cartilage instead of paying the tip against the wall of the ear cartilage if you get my meaning.
That said I would prefer not to be aware of the find at all. Maybe more I am feeling the residual irritation.
The JBL while not as secure never caused pain.
It's very likely you're getting fatigued from messing around with a new pair so much. Have any over-ears you can take a break with?
I'm in a very anti-Samsung camp after one of their Galaxy S4s tried to burn my house down. Wouldn't have been such a big deal if Samsung didn't try to outright deny it, all the way up the corporate ladder, then had that rash of issues about a year later. Long story short, Samsung's out for me no matter how good they are. It's a principle thing.I'm wondering what this thread's take is on the galaxy pro's? I saw a bit about them a few months back and then nothing. I got a pair to go with my android phone (pixel 3) and PC, and I kinda like them, but they are a bit fatiguing to my ears and like many others don't fit well. The sound itself is good though, although sometimes the treble can be a bit too much. I had the sony wf-xsm3's for a while but didn't like the sound as much and had connection issues.
I'll likely return, but I'm unsure what to try next. I'm no audiophile, but the biggest single attribute I want is good sound, assuming they meet some minimum requirements. For me this is, in no particular order:
1. Good solid connection with my phone/PC
2. ANC (doesn't have to be top notch but it is important to me)
3. Hear through ie I want to be able to change a setting so I can talk to others without taking the iem's out. I love how on the samsung, if I talk it automatically goes to that mode.
4. Decently good mic - just enough for some calls and occasional webcam use.
Based on the remainder of your requirements, the best option's going to be the Jabra 85t simply off Requirement 1 alone. That combined with the Jabra Link 380 provides a significant boost in both audio quality for general listening as well as call quality during all these work-from-home meetings. ANC is plenty robust, HearThrough works great, and I think I covered the mic well enough.
Pro tip: Look for the refurbished models on Jabra's Ebay page. They still have the Elite Active 75t for under $100, so you could reasonably apply that savings towards the Link (which I had to get from their website directly). With coupon, pretty sure I paid about $130 for those 85t. At that price, I can't complain about a dang thing.
