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

    Received mine from AE too. Did you have to do a cut on the opposite side of the nozzle ? I can't quite "tuck" mine there. Even like that they do the job and the SQ is a bit improved over the "sponge" option, they also stick out less.

    MW07 still my favorites, followed by Bose Soundsport Free (though I would not wear the latter outside of the house). I just got in the Mavin Air-X and I'm pleasantly surprised. Perhaps, I shouldn't be, as they are an over-$100 set on Amazon. For my ears, I get the best secure seal with the included large tips and no silicone sleeve.

    I am actually surprised by the sound of many recent TWE I tried, they all really nail the tuning with that form factor.
    What the Mavins really bring to the table though is their range and stability if true. Have you had a walk around the house away from your source? What about listening while the microwave is on?

    Try the Spinfit CP350, they are absolutely amazing and are made for TWE. They have a super small profile and an oval shape. At first it feels like you don't have a seal, but you actually have a great one! Most comfortable silicones I ever tried.

    I've seen a few people wearing the Bose on the commute and boy do those things stick out! They look like small submarines poking outside your ears!

    Just downloaded and installed MTW firmware v1.25. Not sure from description if this is the update that will resolve the case/battery charge issue, but I sure hope so. The bullet points on the iPhone update app says "Connectivity improvements and performance optimization" (the other three don't mention case, battery or any such thing related to the case). It does however apparently fix the strange battery level indicator imbalance, now offering "one common battery indicator for earbuds." Does that mean if it says 100% that is actually the case for each bud? Hope so. I also hope this is the update that fixes the fact the case can't hold a charge past 1-2 days of being unplugged. You'd think they would mention that, right?

    Crackle on the right still there?

    No crackle for me, but never had one. Listening right now. That sounds like a faulty pair. Went to Amazon Music, played Shards of Heart, no crackle. There is a slight clicking noise when I move the equalizer dot, but otherwise, silent.

    No, only the bottom of it. Now that I only use them for watching TV, I actually don't use the sleeves or sponges anymore. They work great pairing with a BT transmitter supporting AAC codec.
    After trying different TWEs, I end up using Sabbat X12 pro at home, and Mifo O5 pro and earin M2 for gym. Mifo O5 pro was an impulsive buy, but they're surprisingly a good all rounder. They sound pleasant though not outstanding, but the fit, comfort, connection, and battery life are all excellent. I'm even thinking about putting earin M2 on sale here...

    If I could find it in large, I'd give it a try. Every other spinfit I've tried (for various IEMs, not for TW, though) was too small to make a seal for me, even in the large size

    Doesn't say anything about the case issue. Only one way to find out, charge the case and let it sit for 2 days. If the buds are still charged, bingo! If not, still waiting for that FW fix.

    ok, well I ended up putting back the sponges as they bring out the bass a lot more than the Airpod silicone sleeves for some reason as the slight expense of clarity maybe. I found the X12s sounded very "thin" without them.

    It looks like the Mifo O5 might be using the same Realtek chip as the X12 and E12 ?

    With the X12, 65t and Havit G1 as a "backup" I think I'm all set now until we get the first Qualcomm QC512x based TWs with built-in ANC.
