    Going through Amazon's Prime Day Launches and while there are a few TWE's, I came across this Philips that hasn't been discussed yet:
    https://www.amazon.com/Philips-SHB4385-Wireless-Playtime-Charging/dp/B07P5JSZK5
    (I'm seeing the same price with current listing so not sure how this is a deal.)

    They look really huge, and still just BT4.1...

    SPECS:
    • Big pumping bass: bass+ headphones feature 8. 2 mm speaker drivers that produce big, pumping bass
    • Up to 12 hours of playtime: get up to 6 hours of playtime from the earbuds and recharge in the compact rechargeable charging case for another 6 hours (case holds approx. 6 hours of playtime battery)
    • Hands-free calling: enjoy convenient hands-free calling with mic and Bluetooth 4. 1, along with a closed-back acoustic design that keeps ambient noise out and great sound in via enhanced passive noise isolation
    • Secure fit: Designed for optimal fit, bass+ True wireless headphones feature stability Fin for secure fit
    • 3 ear tip sizes for a custom fit: silicon ear caps come in 3 sizes for a better, customized fit
    • Usb charging cable included: the included USB charging cable makes it easy to keep your headphones powered up when you need them.

    Yeah I saw those before too. Pretty sure they're not actually brand new. Have you tried doing a Google search for the model number or model name?

    Dang, those are some interesting looking TWS'. I don't understand the logic of launching a product that is BT 4.1.
     
  5. vstolpner
    It is Amazon..... Can always return it. But at that price I'm pretty sure I'm going to skip. I'm looking forward to 1more's implementation of QCC51XX. They'll be hybrids too, not just dual dynamic

    I searched explicitly by the model number in conjunction with head-fi and since no hit, I posted but now just searched by model no. only and see that they are in fact old dating back to 2017 so the BT4.1 makes sense now. I got fooled by Amazon's product listing date of 6/25/19... :triportsad:

    To make it up, I found this interesting pair claiming 8 hours, physical buttosn (with Vol+/-) and aptX:
    https://www.amazon.com/Back-Bay-Sweatproof-Headphones-Microphone/dp/B07SFJWRKS/

    I would get them but I'm on self-imposed "no more TWE's for 2019" restriction...

    Will do, this is my 2nd pair. I repaired the rubber cover on my first pair with superglue. I believe it was you who suggest that, sorry can't remember, but it worked. No i'm interested to see if one of the audiohackers in the group can help me figure out how to get a replacement chipset or add AAC and or Aptx to the 359s.
     
  9. d3myz
    I saw that too. I was looking at some of the TWS' on there after you mentioned these. That Prime Day Launch moniker is deceiving. Boo!
     
  10. vstolpner
    The 359 already does AAC.....

    But I'm not sure that replacing the chipset make any sense since each one is tuned specifically to the acoustic properties of the chamber/housing as well as the driver. Well.... At least any pair that would be featured here should be anyway....

    I'll have to double check, but when I was forcing AAC and aptX on my mac, There's a dev tool that allows me to see the codec and monitor the bit rates etc. and both times I looked while using the 359s it was using SBC.
     
  12. d3myz
    Those are the exact same form factor as the MPOW T5, and Tranya T1 pro

    Just double checked again - using AAC on my Galaxy S8.

    I've heard that some AAC implementations only work on iPhone - maybe this is a reverse of that?

    Yep AAC was confirmed by one or two of the guys here. I don't own anything Apple, so I can't check. My android box might have aac cause movies sound great. Anyway I can check on my android box? Hopefully Anbes will release something soon with aptx since the 359 is sold out almost everwhere. I think it's their best seller for them.

    Here they are...

    https://www.e-earphone.jp/shop/shopdetail.html?brandcode=000000209236&search=kong+x&sort=price_desc

    A balanced armature and a 10 mm dynamic driver. They were pretty bass heavy but still had decent mids and extended highs.
    They got really loud. The plastic they are made of was really cheap though.
    They are pretty old now, so only used SBS and AAC. They are big, but the case is HUGE.
    In the pictures you can use that carabiner clip as a reference.
    It doesn't fit pockets. Not even huge clown pockets.
