Dudios got longer play time but music time is 5h. I wonder what is play time and music time.

If you're worries about looking like a dork, then you shouldn't be looking at discount earbuds at all imo, they all look pretty goofy. Getting the sleek form factor is expensive.

I have these and they're dece for the price.
They are a bit on the chunkier side but they fit alright and the sound quality is good enough!
As a previous poster said, "If you're worries about looking like a dork, then you shouldn't be looking at discount earbuds at all imo, they all look pretty goofy. Getting the sleek form factor is expensive."

I'm happy with the purchase overall though tbh

Thanks OP. Decided to give these a try. $34.95 all in after coupon.

Need a pair for walks at lunch on work days. These.may do the trick as I don't need anything too serious.
I don't share your greed, the only card I need is the Ace of Spades.

Not to highjack my own thread. But these are the future. Not currently available for Canada from Amazon

Link here

Makes so much sense to have the earbuds charging double as a speaker. form factor almost looks small enough to still fit in pocket

Decided to get both the Dudios Free Mini and the Balfer to compare them.

Balfer is definitely better. They were fuller and a slight bass-ier. The Dudios sound seems very hollow and teeny.

One thing I've noticed that even though both are BT 5.0, I have laggy problem when connected to my PC. Perhaps it's my PC's BT driver issue. As well, when connected to my Oculus Quest, I get a slight lag. Not sure if that's an usual issue.

That is exactly what people said about AirPods when they were first released

First it was over-the-ear headphones. Now it's bluetooth ear buds.

How many sets can a person possibly own?? In my case, too many.

Did you by any chance test call quality? I got the anker soundcore 2, sound was decent...call quality was pretty bad. My wife had trouble understanding what I was saying...said I was cutting off. I was in a mall and didn't have much if any background noise going on. Looking for an alternative.

These were good up until left earbud stopped working and had no sound. Sound quality and call quality, battery was great. Had two duds. returned them both.

Any suggestions on alternatives with good sound battery and voice mic quality?

anker soundcore 2 sounds like it has bad call quality
