Hope you could make / include a set of ear fins or wings ...i really struggle with TWS headphones.... just can't get them to sit right on my right ear ... wings/fins make 100x better experience

Design we use for MTW100/300 is more ergonomically shaped that many of rival TWS and it was praised by users for comfort and secure fit. As such, we have no plans to be adding any wings or fins.

MTW100BA V2 was the best fitting tws iem I have tried, so small and it disappears in the ear. I have also used it without any issue for a year now. I enjoyed the sound of the BA version, curious to see how the MTW300 differs/improve upon it. The fact that its DD only seems like it will be more V shape than the relatively flat BA sound of the MTW100.

Edit: I really hope they improved the mic quality as well.
Sound of MTW300 is more alongside tuning of MTW100 DD, so yeah, more pronounced V shape. It's quite noticeable jump form the MTW100BA.
Big improvements in sound of MTW300 is in technicalities, significant improvement form both versions of MTW100.

Mic is now better, partly thanks to the Qualcomm tech.

Any plans for a BA version of MTW300 or is it DD only?

Just got my pair an hour ago. So far I like them.

Aluminium charging case feels premium but it's bit heavy. Buds itself are light and (1h in ear) still comfortable.

I don't want to comment to much on sound since it's still not burned it. But out of the box and with 1h playing time they already sound good. Have no obvious pitfall. Imaging is good, soundstage also good. Generally a fun slightly V tuned frequency response. Although again they need some burn in, they sound bit "loose" and bit harsh high frequencies.

I hope they get better definition and more balanced sound after some burn in.

Are fw updates possible ? Maybe to add aptX HD ? They sound a bit limited with just aptX .

Glad to hear you like them.

Support of codecs is limited by the Qualcomm chipset, which only supports normal aptX. This is not something you can simply add in firmware update.

No ambient mode. It was removed after our experience with it on MTW100.
i still wonder hows the latency.
There is still some latency, as it's not the special version of aptX. How much exactly can differ from your phone and also from the app you are currently using.

i Have read that ear tip choice is limited due to the size of the charging case, do final e tips fit? Cheers
No, Final E eartips do not fit in the case. So far only aftermarket tips we found to fit are Misodiko eartips.

I used Misodiko on my MTW100 BA, but found them to be too affecting of sound signature on MTW300.
