Add Anker but careful substracting, with each generation the other two brands improve.

Meanwhile, the established brands rest on their laurels and sometimes disappoint at much higher prices.

Keep an open mind.

Just got these today. First impressions:

- nice and small case
- touch button are hard to press, sometimes touches register other times they don’t
- ANC isn’t THAT noticeable but still better than nothing (also a pain to turn on since it’s activated using touch buttons)
- did a test call and the other party had no issues hearing me

Will spend a bit more time with them before I decide to keep them or not.

They're sitting on my desk, sealed in box.

Waiting for more review like your own to come in.

Day 2 update. Will be returning them.

- can't get the touch button to work reliably. Therefore am not able to turn on ANC on/off when desired
- ears start hurting after 20-30 minutes (ymmv)

Anyone have any other suggestions for tws earbuds?

Jabra 65t.

I've tried different chinese branded tws buds...qcy qs2, xiaomi red dots, umidigi upods, aukey ep t21, enacfire e90, etc. They're cheap ($10-$40) and ok for sound, but there's always trade offs in mic quality, comfort, controls.

Spend a little more and or wait for the refurbished deal for Jabra.

Had these, didn't like them. Usually, Aukey is good stuff.

Keep an open mind.
I do keep an open mind, thanks to RFD I've got 10+ Bluetooth earbuds from Amazon - Anker, mpow, dudios, soundpeats, random brands etc. There's always some sort of downfall. Truth is, none of these amazon earbuds provide value of more than $30, maybe $40 tops. They baited you by overinflating the regular price then offering coupons or discount codes to make it seem like a hot deal.

Just spend some more from an established brand, you'll get better earbuds that will most likely last longer. The Jabra 65T refurbs are probably the best value. If you just want cheap earbuds like these to listen to music then go ahead, but no need to hype it up excessively.

These are supposed to be New Year’s gifts.

There's no baiting as I went in eyes open knowing Amazon returns cover me.

I can't rock any of these devices because they aren't work appropriate.

I may still keep K-Sound and gift them. The other ones may go back.

For many people, these are plenty good, they just don't meet my demanding standards.
