Going fully Wireless IEMs. Too soon? Or are we there yet?

    Agree that the E12 needs some EQ to remove some of the bass bloat and add a bit more sparkle in the high end frequencies

    I am interested in trying the X12 though. I heard that the sound signature is different.
    Mavin's on top and the Jabra Elite Sport on the bottom. They are a lot smaller than what I was expecting.

    This is a big thread to read from start to finish, so can anyone offer some summaries please for the current favourites?

    Most of my listening is in the gym. Currently using a Sansa Clip+ and Sony XB90EX, previously used other fun, bass heavy IEMs such as Hippo VB etc.

    Id like to start using my iPhone in the gym instead and want to explore if bluetooth headphones have matured yet.

    Price is no concern despite them being for the gym. So what are the reccomendations guys, for something with quality sounds and leaning more towards the bass heavy sound for electronic music?

    Based on your preferences, look at the Sennheiser MTW and the Sony SP700n. While I haven't personally heard them, soundguys indicated the JBL ua flash apparently puts out a ton of bass.

    This was the same list that I had. It came down to the MiFo o5 and F16, so I decided on the F16 since I thought the form-factor was better for me. If you do go for the F16, keep in mind that you might have difficulty pairing it with your phone. I had to factory reset them 2 or 3 times to get both synchronized with my phone. Once I got pass this minor annoyance, it was smooth sailing. I have no connection issues whatsoever.

    The volume control is better on the W1(HonShoop) than the X12. Gotta check on battery life as well on both. Call quality is decent on the W1, but not the best. I heard them good, but they said it was a small delay on their side. I'm using my wireless sets for music, TV shows and movies only. I rather use my phone without any type of headsets.

    thanks for the heads up! I ended up going with the mifo MOSTLY because it was more accessible where I was and it would ship to me sooner, and its waterproof (I'll be working outside this summer with it). would you know if the mifo had any connection issues??

    I think you made a good choice. I don't hear of any issues with Mifo, same goes for the massdrop TFZ version. The only negative comment that I've seen about the Mifo's was someone saying that they sounded "compressed". But, I personally believe that comes with the territory unless you buy the more "premium" TWE's.

    How is the tfz?

    I havent tried them out personally, but based on what other members have said, it sound similar to the Mifo's. I think in the $40-$100 price bracket, the sq tends to lean more towards a more consumer friendly sound. That works out for me since I don't focus on the overall soundscape nearly as much as I do at home.

    Just received the rebranded Sabbat X12 I ordered on Amazon Spain, and they sound great. They show as Sabbat X12 when connected to the phone, but the manual says they use Bluetooth 4.2 instead of 5.0 like the "original" Sabbat X12. Is there any way to check if that's true?

    By the way, anyone also experiencing lag when watching video with their Sabbat X12? They seem to have more delay than the QCY QS1.

    I just tried with my Sabbat X12 Pro/Note 8 and experienced literally next to nothing lag when streaming on NetFlix. Just to be sure, I have the one with Type-C charging, and not a rebrand. (From what I understand, there is a version also with micro-USB charging)

    I have no lag on my X12(micro USB charging). maybe try resetting the them as per manual.

    Has anyone ever heard of these:


    A fellow HeadFier loves them, but they’re almost double in price compared to the QCY Q1S. I’m wondering which one might be better.

    I need not only music, but good performance for phone calls. I know that’s asking a lot for TWS IEMs, as the microphone is so far away from your mouth. But I already have a TWS setup I’m happy with (TRN BT20), so I need to justify getting yet another Bluetooth IEM.

    Or is there another one I should consider that has superior phone calling performance? I’m primarily going to be using it when driving, so there would be typical in-cabin road noise and such.

    Jabras are known for great call and sound quality. I have the Jabra Elite 65t active and they sound good (used primarily at the gym) and call quality is the best from the few other TWS I have.
