Received them at the beginning of last week. Was a bit afraid they lacked bass (BA-version), but they really sound good. Way better soundstage than my MPOW T5/M5's. I'm pretty pleased. I thought I had a problem with charging, but there were little transparent films stuck on the connectors. So after I removed them no problem.
I listen to a wide range of music.
And I can still use them when I lay my head on a pillow :wink:

Yeah, we needed to add note about this into manual, apparently nobody thought to check their TWS for such contact protective films.

I was in progress of filling in a RMA request as my headphones did not seem to work at all. No light, no 4 times tick for factory reset, no bluetooth connection, nothing, dead on arrival.

I spent 2 hours to get them working until I hit this thread by accident. With some magnifying glasses I was able to see the very tiny plastic films. The protective films, are sorry to say, ridiculous small and almost not noticeable with the human eye. I read the instructions 4 times and did not read a single thing about this.

You should not take this so lightly; "Yeah, we needed to add note about this into manual". Please do not blame your stupid customers, blame yourself...

I now have one of these (the BA version) and I like it a lot. My quick bullet points:
  • My wired preferences are AKG and Etymotic type signatures, and for me these have that category of sound signature – though they're a bit their own thing too.
  • Sound quality is quite good. It's not at the level of my wired preferences, but it's still pretty satisfying, at least for my tastes.
  • Lightweight, fairly compact, and easy to wear for a long time.
  • Play-through mode works pretty well.
  • There seems to be auto-throttling on play-through mode! Switch on a vacuum cleaner, blender, etc. with play-through on, and in a couple seconds the MTW100 turns the outside world's volume down for you. Nice.
  • Another nice thing: tapping the touch sensor during play-through mode does not send a huge thump or scraping noise into my ears (a big problem with my Nuhearas).
  • The included tips are fine, but in my hard-to-fit ears the aftermarket Misodiko TWS-Joy tips are working better, with improved fit, comfort, and isolation. (I also tried the Misodiko TWS-Pro foam tips but they didn't stay in place very well for me.)
  • "Dual earbuds pairing is successful" is a bit much to hear every time you take them out of the case. It's only a very minor annoyance, but I'd replace it with a much shorter stereo sound sample if I could.
  • Charging case is quite compact. I don't love the case's slippery texture, but there's an included little lanyard that will help keep you from dropping it.
  • With the case facing you, the charging light is to the rear of the charging port, so when you have a charging cable plugged in it's a little inconvenient to see when it's done charging.
  • They're nice looking, and the case is nice looking.
  • I'd love to see some limited edition colors. My daughter would love some blue or teal ones.
  • Call quality: I don't know yet. I'll update this bullet point when I've used them on a call.
  • Battery life: don't know. I haven't yet managed to run them down while wearing them (longest uninterrupted stretch so far has been about 2 hours). My iPhone always reports them at 100%, so that's no help.
Overall: love them.

Value for money: absolutely fantastic.

Yeah, these are my default set for running. The functionality is just flawless.

Thank you for your impressions!

Interesting third-party tips, can you tell me if they fit into the case nicely?

Shanling, just an idea for future tws models:
Include an rubber earhook as an accessory to improve fit and help it keeping in place, i used the earhook of an old VE monk earphone.

Yes, they do fit into the case nicely, and I'm using the large size.

The link I shared before was an Amazon link, so here's the actual homepage.

Hey everyone,

Just received my pair of MTW100. I got the BA version.
I only have one question regarding ambient mode. Whenever i activate it there is a slight hissing and crackling sound. It is noticable till 30% volume. Is this normal? Also the ambient mode favours high frequency sounds more than other frequencies. Like if a man next to me is saying something to me i won't be able to notice it at 60% volume but a high frequency noise like a pinch or a keyboard stroke I can notice.

There can be some hiss when ambient mode is active.

Point of this mode is for surrounding awareness, so mainly things like car horns, phone ringings, etc.

Starting from January 2020, Shanling MTW100 will be available in new V2 version, with few adjustments to touch controls and Bluetooth chip.

This change affects both BA and DD version.

Price stays the same at 89 / 79 USD.


How to distinguish V1 from V2?

Both versions look the same and come in the same packaging, you can only identify them either by checking their user manual or by testing the Surrounding awareness mode.

Any chance that my order from Dec 31st are going to be v2 or will they be v1?
