Not WOW, but been listening to this a lot lately.
Really impressed with the changeable vocals.
On this album, following a rather painful divorce, Jewel said she wanted to get back to her original self and the style of music from her debut album.

Ok, one more for the WOW. Can't let this gem pass by un-lauded!
Somewhat bizarrely, the first time I heard this song was in a rather amusing Korean romantic comedy film called 'Windstruck' :)

@Richsvt Those look gorgeous, really liking that colour.

Initial impressions of the Liberty 2 are a possible improvement over the sound of the original, they have very punchy bass but the mids are very recessed with the highs coming straight to the fore again. These are very V shaped. They have a fancy app to go with it which I haven't tried yet, supposed to test your hearing and adjust the sound accordingly, will try that sometime this weekend and I'll certainly look at equalizing to see if I can pull the mids forward a bit more.

Personally I find they fit my ears a bit better than the originals, could never get number one to lock in fully, however could still get it to stay in with the right tips. These hook straight in no issues. Going to give them more of a listen today at work and give the claimed 8 hour battery life a good test, if they manage that they'll be kept.

@Midgetguy I also wear glasses but find I don't have huge issues with the arms and the hooks on the Eoz could be that the arms on my glasses are slightly thinner (or I have massive ears!). Going to keep them as they are very good for when I'm out running and I like the sound enough, will be looking to sell the original Liberty + though as I don't think I need three pairs (4 if you count my Phantom Air, but then who's counting that?)
Part of my problem with the Liberty+ was that it really stuck out of my ears quite a lot. And that large button was kinda easy to push, which had its upsides and downsides; didn't have to jam it into my ear to push the button, but it also was easily pressed just by the pressure of having a beanie on over my ears. The overall size wasn't great for my ears because they're just a bit too large so it would get uncomfortable after an hour or two. With all that said, I far prefer physical control buttons rather than touch interface; physical buttons with a tactile feel are just better especially when it comes to something you can't see your interaction with. Bragi Headphone, still the best control interface in a wireless IEM that I've tried.

If I counted the Phantom Air, I'd have 4 pairs of wireless IEMs as well.....2 of which are the Airs :p. BTW, does the Liberty 2 Pro have a transparency mode? The Liberty+ had it, but it was utter trash. The system on the Bragi Headphone was lightyears ahead, it sounded almost like you didn't have them in. And despite having a mic, I'm pretty sure it's not a feature on the Mezone B6 I'm currently using most often.

I'm expecting them to either hit or get pretty close the 8-hour per charge that they're advertising. I think the Liberty+ met the 3-4 hour time they claimed? My Mezone B6 claims 8 hours and while it doesn't meet that, I had it hit 7 hours which is more than I'd generally need it for. I don't know if it would be able to hit the 8-hour claim if I was using BT5.0 since I don't have any devices that do it. BT5.0 is supposed to be more power-efficient so maybe if I had it, then it could hit the claimed 8 hours. Doesn't matter all that much to me, I put it back in the case when I'm not using them and the case keeps it charged anyway. Other than that first time I tried to test battery life, I've never had them going for more than 3 hours.

I have gotten some chores done this morning as I need to wait for a wine delivery. Listening to some tunes and sipping coffee for now. Really want to get outside and enjoy this wonderful, crisp Fall day. Fedex is usually pretty good about late morning deliveries so the wait shouldn't be too bad. Geez, the things I do for alcohol...

The Campfire Polaris 2's are in the building and I'm smitten already. I'm going to give it some time to be sure it's not new toy syndrome of course but it's looking good. Also, CA is a premium unboxing experience imo.

I agree, time well spent.
