We'll see over here. Talk to me in a few weeks. I will say, I'm having fun with it too and I'm usually just doing things hands free re: calls. I like that you can use the front screen vertically or horizontally. That helps. It's also easier to hold in on hand, but I do miss Reachability, unless Android has it and I'm missing it. Haven't had many typos and I usually dictate my texts. I do wish it was more a 16x9 form. That would def solve the thin issue while closed. I do still prefer iOS, but I'm new, or rather, came back to try Android yet again.

On another note, no idea why they keep added more models to the Jabra line: https://www.theverge.com/2022/9/1/23331888/jabra-elite-5-earbuds-announced-features-price Maybe I'm missing something.
I really like my new Elite 85T's...
iPhone user here; quick connect, stable, comfortable and great sound...
Looks like the newer ones mostly better it in battery time...
Makes sense, most everything else is just not going to see big tech jumps for a while....

You can get the Elite 7s for $119 these days. They're cannibalizing their lineup. So odd:

  • Elite 7 Pro $199.99
  • Elite 7 Active $179.99
  • Elite 5 $149.99
  • Elite 4 Active $119.99
  • Elite 3 $79.99

It’s indeed odd. The 85t were the only open design earbuds in their lineup and I thought they will issue a newer model but nothing so far.

The Space A40 arrived and using hearid these sound very nice. They have a spacious quality to them. I will need to A/B them to the Linkbuds S to get a better idea of the differences in sound.

They have a bit more bass I think but not as big as I had hoped. But again I need to give them some time before I can that with certainty.

I already miss the ability of the Linkbuds S to stop music and go into ambient just by talking of the ability to switch between ambient modes with the touch of a button (might be ablt adjust this using app).

I am 90% sure I am going to love the better battery life though...

Bought Senn' white MTW3 for $80 yesterday. On Elkjop, Norwegian webshop. Pretty cheap :)
Got same deal, and managed to test them a little. Maybe im getting old but dont notice that big sound improvement from mtw2.
What tips are people using? I put on the same spinfit cp360 large as I had on the mtw2, but i feel maybe i could use cp360 medium. But costly just to try that.
Have some leftover cp100, anyone tried those?

Did sell the mtw2, so made a small profit. But now cant compare them, oh well

Also using the fins, large size. I think I had those backwards first, is this the correct way?

I'm also curious how the MTW3 sq is compared to the CX Plus.
Where I'm at nowadays I can literally get the CX Plus for half the price.
In terms of call quality and ANC online comparisons suggest the MTW3 are better if that's a priority.

I think MTW3 sound noticably better than MTW2. Fuller sound, punchier bass and at least as detailed and "crispy" imo.
I sold the whites, and kept my graphite pair :)
The tips I'm using is Flexitfit foam. (which came with my Lypertek Tevis)
The reason for that choice, is that they are quite short/shallow? (doesn't go deep in my ears). That helps me with the noise/dropouts I get with ANC on when chewing etc.
They, Flexifits, are very comfortable as well and sound as good as any silicone tip I've tried. But beware, I use them because my ears are a little "special". That's why I don't want to recommend them to you.

The fins on mine are mounted the same way as yours. Think that is correct. (I use mediums)

hm, seems one of my ears is also "special" Now that I noticed the fins was on wrong, maybe experiment with a medium there.

Adidas.com has a sale for anyone wanting to try out their TWS buds. They're not half bad and even better at this price.
Concur. My white ones did not survive the laundry machine. Likely due to the ridiculous fabric case. In any event, this set me into a panic as my other TWS buds all slowly fall out of my ears when cycling and offer unbearable amounts of wind noise. And then, last weekend, they showed up as sold out. Thankfully, they reappeared for $70 shipped to my door in 1 day. I think they are the best fitting TWS I've ever owned. Should probably buy a back up.
