Bluetooth/wireless earbuds

TNRebTNReb Advanced Members Posts: 751
I searched for this topic, but didn't find anything from the last 12 months. So, I thought I'd give it a whirl and see if anyone's opinions have changed with newer stuff being released. My apologies ahead of time if there's been a newer discussion that I missed.



(I'm not really sure if this belongs in this sub forum)



Im looking for a quality pair of Bluetooth earbuds. They'll mostly be used for running and the occasional trip to the gym. Every now and then I'll use them on the range or putting green.



I don't want to say that price doesn't matter, but I'm willing to spend a little more to get a pair that sounds good. I want something with a bit of bass.



I do not want noise cancelling.



I know the Powerbeats 2 have a lot of low end compared to some other brands, but those things just look huge.



My wife has a pair she got off Amazon for around $30-$40. I took them on a trip with me last weekend and they just sucked. They fell out of my ears, hurt my ears, and sounded like garbage.

    A lot of good options in this thread. It's tough to be Jaybird Bluebuds X, in my opinion.

    I have been using Skullcandy's Smokin' Buds 2 Wireless. Good battery life (6 hours or so) and pretty comfortable. Easy pairing and sound isn't bass-heavy.

    I just bought a pair of Jaybird X2's. Haven't had a chance to use them at the range or gym but I'm loving them for watching YouTube and listening to music on my IPhone. Bought mine from ABT Electronics and I'd definitely recommend them as a vendor.

    You'll love the Jaybirds.... I had a set of Powerbeats wireless and loved the over ear fit but I would lose connection constantly. Once I got used to the in ear fit the Jaybirds have been fantastic, and the only time I've lost connection was when I walked about 100 yards away from my phone at the range.

    I'll give an endorsement to the jaybirds as well. I've got the original bluebuds and they are top notch

    I wouldn't say they go a whole hundred yards, I've had minimal connection issues when I use them walking and I'm around a green or what not but nothing major.

    The originals can be had new for under $80 bucks which almost makes it a no brainier, and I don't think there's enough of an improvement with the x2 to pay double the price.

    The powerbeats are also solid, be some reviews rate them higher than the jaybirds, but it depends if you want over or in-ear.



    Here's a solid deal on powerbeats if that's the direction you end up going

    I did a lot of research myself and the top ones are the Jaybirds, XTFREEs by SC and the SB2s. I ended up going for the cheaper SB2s and they're great for the range but not so much for running. There's still that feedback from the bounce and they don't completely stay in but as far as sound. They sound phenomenal. I listen to a lot of complex metal and I like to hear vocals and ****.

    Best wireless buds out there IMO. The components rate higher and are better than any Beats products and the design is so comfortable and wont go anywhere.

    I recently got the wireless Beats 2, I know they are expensive, but the sound quality is amazing! If you go back and forth from one set to another then you can tell a difference, I can hear instruments in the background i did not hear before. The sound is crisp and clear, and they are very comfortable. They also last me about 12-15 hours on a full charge.

    MPow Magnetos are a great set of earbuds at a very good price in the $30-$40 range. I saw they had great reviews and gave them a shot and I'm not at all disappointed. I haven't gotten to take them to the range yet, but usually get a day and a half out of them at work and they are magnets so you can clamp them together around your neck when not in use. I think the sound is great and I barely know I am wearing them so they aren't uncomfortable.

    I bought this when they were on sale for $10 at Amazon early last year.

    I use it everyday, when I work out or going to the range.



    They sound great and been really reliable.

    I'd figure if it breaks, I can get another one for $10.

    Strange. I have the AirPods and they're my favorite piece of tech I've ever owned. I can literally do front flips on a trampoline and they stay in place absolutely perfectly. I use them during every round. I also use them when riding my bike. And running errands. Or doing dishes. Or talking on the phone with my actual phone in my pocket.

    I have and use the Bose SoundSport - they are great all around headphones and the battery life is top notch. Can't wonder from your device that you're using for music but so far - however, I walk and say my phone is in my bag, I'm on the green and the bag is on the fringe - no problem. I think they are rated from 35-55 feet, so not the industry best, but the quality is second to none in my opinion.

    Anker SoundBuds Slim are the best on a budget. IPX4 water resistant, plenty of ear bud sizes with removal hooks, 10m/33ft range, inbuilt mic, 7 hour play time, magnetic attach when not in use and for $26 they seriously sound great. Throw them in your bag and no need to be precious about them.

    I've used the MPOW one off of Amazon that one of the posters listed couple years ago, it blocks out the outside noise pretty well and has held up fine over the years given the cost.



    Nowadays I tend to use the AirPods just so I don't need to carry a different charging cable.

    Been using the Jaybird x2 for a couple months now and they’re great. Good sound and once you find the right fit they will stay put. I haven’t used them on the range yet but I use them in the gym usually 5 times a week and I’ve yet to have a problem

They are one of the best pieces of tech equipment I've ever bought.

    agree with everything you said. One of the best christmas gifts my wife every got me. I didn't ask for them but they are so much better for golf and working out than anything else I've tried. The fact that you have the option to only use 1 AirPod and have the other ear open is a real bonus if you want to stretch battery life or wear one while playing and hear things going on around you on the course. On the few occasions i have played rounds as a single it has been a perfect way to listen to what i want, without bothering anyone else, while still being able to hear someone else yell fore.

    Agree on AirPods, I have never had one fall out on the range or in the gym. The only complaint I have is their inability to block/filter outside noise, thus cannot wear them while mowing or using a snow blower lol

    Agreed. Thought I would hate them and use the 14 day return policy. My most used piece of tech besides the cell phone. Great for phone calls/conference calls and listening to music. Love them.

    AirPods are great if they happen to be a good fit for your ears. They stay in great in mine and I don’t get ear pain from wearing them. They are also very convenient if you have Apple products like iPhone and iPad for seamless switching between devices. They also allow me to hear what is going on around me, which I like for in the office or on a course.



    My kids have BoseSport Wireless. The sound quality is much better on the Bose and they definitely have more base. They come with multiple rubber inserts, so you are much more likely to get a good fit with these than the AirPods. Since they seal better, they do tend to block out noise more so you aren’t as aware of people around you. They are more expensive than the AirPods. They also stick out more and look a bit more strange than the AirPods if you care about that.



    I’m personally glad I went with the AirPods because they fit my ears well, work very well with all my Apple products, and I am aware of my surroundings. If I was more interested in sound quality or the AirPods didn’t fit my ears properly, I would go with the Boes.

    I’m not a fan of any Apple earbuds that I’ve tried. They always hurt my ears after a while. I have the Jaybird X2 earphones but I’ve not been able to get a good seal with them with any of the tips. I only really use those if I don’t care about hearing noise around me. I mainly use the Shure SE215-K-BT1 earphones. The cable is a bit long but I just use a rubber tie to get it to the length I like. A bonus is that I can use the Bluetooth cable with other earphones that have female mmcx connectors or use the earphones with wired cables with male mmcx connectors.

    Just bought some jbl everest 100 from Costco. Very impressed so far, easy/quick to connect, sound good and don't have any issues with them falling out even when mountain biking.

    My new phone doesn't have a head phone jack but I already had a good pair of wired Bose sport earbuds that I like so I grabbed a $15 Bluetooth dongle on Amazon. Plug the buds in the dongle, clip it to my belt, run the wire inside my shirt and good to go. Essentially wireless and didn't have to spend a ton of money replacing an otherwise perfectly good set of earbuds.

    I had the Powerbeats 2 (loved them) and this past weekend they got stepped on. Based on comments earlier in this thread the Jaybirds are recommended a lot. So I wanted to look into those. Based on this video and my personal experience with the Powerbeats2, I’ll be getting the Powerbeats3.



    The 2’s were perfect for the Driving Range or Gym because they stayed in my ears, had great battery and good range from phone. And all those things have drastically improved apparently with the Powerbeats3.

    - better adjustable over ear strap

    - double battery life (12 hours)

    - 5 min fast charge

    - largest range from phone



    I definitely recommend those because I keep them in the car and charge them every week or two and then and just grab them when I’m going to the gym or range.

    The Power Beats 3 fit my ear better over the 2's... best bluetooth sound and fit as tested by CNET
