Lol. Well not sure about aptx s never used it before, but I guess it's better to have it and not need it that to not have it and then eventually need it. And I'll keep the Anbes when I get em. So I guess it's goodbye to the T3s
Honestly dude I'll buy the Tranyas off of you if you're looking to get rid of them, cheapest I can find them online is for $40. I neeeeeed me some bass cannons in my life. I can't help myself, the anbes have great bass but everyone says the T3s have more.

Side note, does anyone know of any cheap/chi fi units with ambient mode? Preferably on the bassy/ v-shaped side of the spectrum.

I've been playing with the Tiso i4 and they have a ton of base... Way more than my T3'S.... I'll actually have my review of them up in a day or two... And they look cool + are tiny

Between the 359 and T3, the T3 do have more base and sit generally nicer. I can understand why some people prefer them... I've actually been using them so much that I need to go back to my 359's to see which one I actually prefer more.

I do like that the T3'S light doesn't blink incessantly. The Anbes are a little too much "Christmas lights" for me

Also, regarding your 359 review, have you tried holding the left or right earbud for 4 seconds to change volume until you hear a beep? That's how it works on my Coolhere UFO, which I find really cumbersome since if I hold too long it shuts them off, too short it stops the music. Sometimes the beep to signal volume has changed is VERY faint on my phone, and completely absent on my Windows 10 laptop. The original 359 and Letscom BE30 had double-tap to change volume.
Four seconds?! No, haven't tried that yet... double tap really doesn't work, unfortunately.

How are those?
These are the last I am expecting in the mail. :wink:
The XG-13 are sooooo bassy, and yet so nice! Like the Oneodio Elysium headphones for 20 dollar, they shouldn't appeal to audiophiles, but their bass just delivers an insane punch, and on top of that the XG-13 delivers good detail and even great instrument placement. Oh, and volume control on the buttons with three presses.

They are my new guilty pleasure.

Hmm, I just found this thread after ordering the jabra elite 65t on the prime day sale for $119. How bad have I played myself? The MPOW T5 and Funcl W1 look like they might be just as good if not better and they cost a lot less... And I just saw the TWS600....
I bought the Jabra Elite 65T as well (note there was also 20% cash back if paid for with an Amazon credit card, so the price was even lower). I also ordered the SpinFit CP360 eartips, designed for the Jabra's.

I must saw, I'm impressed with the sound quality of the Jabra's which was further improved with the SpinFit eartips. And the features of the Jabra seem pretty solid. I feel I got my money's worth.

Just testing the Jabra Elite 65T too. I am NOT convinced, even though it wins so many tests and it's praised for so many aspects.

- Call quality is mediocre, with lots of surrounding noise and a lot of pink noise under the voice. I would have thought, with Jabra's experience, this would be great. Meh.
- In the music too, it sounds like there is a layer of pink noise on the mids. Music sounds way more artificial, capped even than on many of my budget true wireless earphones.
- The volume buttons on the left earpiece are way too small to control convenient.
- Video sync on iPhone is terrible.
- The case opens only if you force it and the earpieces aren't held by practical magnets - a function which every single 10 dollar and up true wireless earphone offers.

- The app is nice though.

That why I always say for that price I can get 3-5 and enjoy different flavors. Sure I got two duds but back they went. China rules. ✌

Why does it blink so much? Contacting aliens?

Oh my Oh my Oh goodness!!!
Just received the MPOW T5, had 15 minutes with them.
They are incredible sounding. Quickest BT connection to my phone ever. ( Samsung Note 8 )
And I thought I would need to manually change the codec from AAC to AptX, but they automatically switch to AptX.
Sound fantastic with HipHop and the bass and highs are both wonderful. Connection seems flawless.
$45 oh so nice. May need to get rid of other stuff now.

Thank you Headfi board family!!!

Could be... I wonder if you have a second pair and turn them on at the same time, will they form a wormhole to their home planet?
