    I also have the QCY T1C. Go for QCY if you want a more balanced sound. Go for the Tiso if you want a tad more bass and fun. The Tiso comes with 2 kinds of silicon tips. No foamies. It wasn’t really hard to get a seal. It is just that it is not very obvious how to put them your ears compared to the QCY. So i did it wrong the first few times.

    I like the sound of Tiso better but the QCY is easier to use cos the buttons are bigger.

    Ah gotcha. How do you know if the case is out of battery? Is there a low battery light? Or is this crazy behavior the telltale sign?

    Thanks for the link, I just picked a pair of these up with the larger charging case. 19.99 is a great price.

    I’m hoping these covers will be useful for a few EarPods style earphones I have (not TW, but wired).

    In theory, they should help improve fit/stability, and also provide an ‘iem like’ seal resulting in better sound.

    Interesting! Let us know how you get on.

    unfortunately no low battery indicator on the case. with most of my TWS, they exhibit the same behavior that is the earpiece would turn on and connect to my device as soon as the case ran out of power

    This is prevalent with many of the Chi-Fi TWEs. After the MTW update, it has not connected to my phone when the case runs out of juice, but the case on the MTW still runs out of power, albeit slower than it did before. There is still also power drain from the eabuds, but again, slower than before. After a few days, you may want to plug in.

    He was specifically referring to the functionality on the of the AirPods. I'm not an Apple user, but my wife is and has the AirPods. I have to say they are so rock solid reliable, the mic background noise cancelling is amazing (she called me while driving and I couldn't even tell), and the gestures and connection are stellar (which is no surprise considering the connectivity hardware is proprietary). They're certainly subpar in sound quality, isolation, etc. but it's hard to argue that it isn't a solid product when it comes to "it just works," especially since the price is significantly lower than any of the big boys on the market.

    yup, the earin and wf-1000x also discharge slowly when not in use. i forgot about the jabra, but i think even if it discharges it went much slower

    100% agree. They do not excel in SQ or isolation, but most people that have them don't want or care about that anyway. For everything else, they set a very high bar. For the record, I still am not a fan of them, but respect their prowess in many key areas.

    Now you're going to make me buy AirPods just out of curiosity to see if I can "mod" them to be better! Goshdarnit!

    Better isolation yes, but better sound is a matter of taste. Earphones drivers which are tuned for an open design might have overpowering bass and not sound very open if you use with in ear ear tips.

    Well, be aware that you have to remove them every time you want to charge them.

    Plus they might be totally crap. So if you want to wait until mine come, I can at least tell you if they’re good or bad on wired versions like the EarPods and MEMT T5.

    Agreed.

    I’ll figure that out when they come. I have ways to retune them using vents to get the original open sound back. But I won’t know anything until they arrive.

    I'm definitely going to wait. Looking forward to the feedback.
