    Ha, I had to look them up myself too. Top: DFOI AirBuds, one below is Anomoibuds. Hope their names are their weak spots. :p

    Wait, isn't the E12 the one with an "open" design while the X12 has a standard eartip design?

    No

    As a long time earbud lover, they were very interesting for me at first. 70% of the time I wish I could have ambient mode on. The real problem is that no amount of volume makes up for a noisy subway or a coworker suddenly printing thousands of pages in the office (I've tried solo-ing earbuds before outside the home...). The nice thing about ambient mode is that a click of a button is like a complete change of earphones. If I got the X12s, I would definitely have to carry around a second set of earphones, and at that point I am not saving much on pocket space or time...

    Are there any with volume control?

    Yes. Many have that feature.

    Sure it"s always going to depend on what you need them for. If you're a runner or ride a bike (or ski, or actually for any sports apart from the gym maybe) they're a no brainer, you stay aware and there's zero thumping while running, that's priceless. If you do neither of these activities you'll need to find yourself in quiet environments where it's easy to forget you have them on.

    What's the best sounding bluetooth earbud released up to date? Anyone knows?

    That's up to you but it probably between the Master and Dynamic MW07 and the Sennheiser Momentum True wireless. I like both a lot!

    It's hard to tell. I get the impression here that people either only have the most expensive offerings, as Howdy mentions, only mid tier or only very affordable. Kind of makes the bigger picture hard to see.

    Well, for me at least.

    I don't think my Funcl W1 has one. I wonder if the QCY T1C has volume control or do you have to spend more than $100?

    I've demo-ed quite a few in all price ranges. MT07 is probably my favorite out of the box, but I feel it is not worth the asking price. 80$ sets will sometimes get you 80% to 90% of the sound quality but offer better battery.

    The expensive models all have apps with EQ settings though...so I guess in the end it is not that big of a deal...fit, connection and features makes more of an impact to me.

    I don't think wireless earbud will sound close to wired ones, especially those totl iems, any time soon. Maybe someday it will replace
    all these ridiculously expensive wired phones just as WIFI has replaced ethernet connection at home.

    Although I like the idea of being wireless I do not want the iem to ruin or deteriorate the sound coming out from the expensive daps I purchased.

    soundwise i think wireless do compete with their wired brothers in their respective price bracket. what concerns me about wireless is the battery life-span. it will deteriorate over time and needs replacement. that's why I'm a bit wary to invest on them too much compared to buying wired ones as they will be with me for longer years.

    maybe someday battery tech would last longer or be user replaceable. but for now i see them more as fast moving electronics, just like the way i see cellphones
