from what ive seen and reviews, the whole thing about the pro is LDAC support, in the rest its almost identical.

and the old version had an issue where the noise floor was a bit high so you would hear noise when raising the volume, some reported it and some said they never encountered it, so it seemed to be more of a irregular production issue then a general defect in design. i dont know if that issue creeped up in the pro.

The hiss or floor noise doesn’t exist in my unit. You now have LDAC support, ambient mode and HearID has another feature to tweak it even further but the rest is the same but sound, mostly in the highs according to one review is improved too.
I can’t compare the two but the new ones sound really good using the flat eq. With their Soundcore recommended eq they sound terrible.

hi everyone, been a while since my interest in tws, can I ask which is the best sounding tws based purely on sound quality, all other features are not that important to me, as much as the sound is

I was just at CanJam and found the Noble FoKus Pro to be among the best I've heard for a tws. It's not out yet, but should be out sometime in October. Unfortunately, I can't really give details on how it sounds since I tried so many IEMs the last couple days that it's hard to remember, but it is a sound quality focused tws. I'd look out for reviews for whenever it comes out

I looked at the stock tips and saw that they were a lot narrower than the nozzles. Switched to KZ Starline tips, and treble was much better; But the case would not close with those tips in Large. So switched to a wider bore double flange set of tips, that fit the case, and the sound opened up even more. Sound was best with High ANC, and LDAC for me. Low ANC and No ANC seemed to have a different equalization than the High ANC that sounded best. Might want to try some wider bore tips?
Thanks. Tried with Xelastec tips and these sound awesome with good treble extension. However, the bass is a bit bloated sounding to me. Nothing to this date matches the quality of MTW2. Going to sell my Neobuds now.

Great to know, I was about to pull the triger on the Falcon Pro. Will wait a few weeks for the FoKus Pro.

I have Falcon Pro. They are good but a little bright, not super musical, but detailed for TWS. I prefer warmth of the Sony XM4. I tried the Fokus at Canjam as well and I want them but know I don't need them, lol. Bass is goes deep, mids are lush, treble is present but not overdone. A very musical TWS that puts it at the top of my list. The overall sound is very cohesive, which I was missing from the Falcon Pro. The shell and faceplate look very nice as well.

Cool. I agree with your
assessment of the falcon. They are very sterile. Looking forward to the fokus in light of your comments.

Can agree 100% with you there ... very happy with them once EQ'd a little .... don't use Soundcore Sound preset ... it's too boomy ... but they're immensely fun earbuds to listen to and hold themselves in place super well with the wings.

I'd be intersted to know what other "with wings" earbuds are out there as i absolutely need wings for my earholes :wink:

I have the Fiil T1XS, they come with small wings and some other wings in the box to try. They are small earbuds and fit my ears extremely well and sound great for what they are.

So I have a question for all the Gemini owners. Is there a way to manually disconnect the earbuds from the device they're connected to? They often connect to my laptop automatically when I get them out of the case, while my laptop is in my bag. So I need to pull out the laptop to disconnect them there, and then I can connect to the phone. Very annoying!

Anybody know a solution?

Cheers!

FiiL's are usually very good. I remember the FiiL Carat PRO's several years ago. Was one of the best on those times. And the full size version that sounded even better.
