I just got a Galaxy S20 FE phone and it is the first phone I have ever owned that didn't have a headphone jack so I went shopping for a pair of bluetooth headphones and came across these


Originally they were $300 but are on sale for $89 since the next gen are out. Got them 3 days ago and I am really enjoying them. I am not an expert, but I do have some SIMGOT EN700 Pro corded IEMs that I have plugged into a tube headphone amp and these wireless IEMs match up very well
I have run a gamut of music thru them from rock to opera plus used them for movies on my tablet. They are extremely comfortable and the sound is great. They even have directional sound...for example I can hear someone walking from right in front of me, then to my right and behind me.

The bluetooth headphones I've used have always sacrificed some sound quality for the convenience, but I always saw that as a flaw of the MP3 files and the fact they're compressed. For comparison, I've listened to the same songs through my home stereo with Grado Prestige sr225e wired headphones, and through my iPhone and Poome headphones. There is no comparison :)

I have a pair of Bose Quiet Comfort and they are worth EVERY. SINGLE. PENNY. They are comfy for long hours. They are clear. They are super light. They don't feel bulky and yet fit my big ears. Connectivity to my phone plus laptop at the same time. Using it as a phone or as headphones are amazing.

I absolutely love them.

For running, I have a pair of over the ear Beats by Dre. I really didn't need or want to spend this much on workout headphones, but I went through a few different other models - and these were the most comfortable. The in-ear headphones kept falling out - again, I have big ears and ear canals to go with it.

And I had over the ear models, but they weren't big enough to stay in and kept coming out.

But yea, wireless headphones are something that I find super useful. Absolutely love them.

Would love to try a pair of AirPods but I know that there's no way those little things are going to stay in my ear.

I too have stepped up to the Airpod Pros and I do love them. But previously I used only SoundPeat earphones for a few years and I can say that the quality isn't much of a drop if any. And they are a fraction of the price. The fact that they are not just the ear piece may turn some off but I found this to be a plus since you can pull it and let it drop while talking and not worry about losing them. They connect to each other magnetically when they hang around your neck

The AirPods have three different sized ear pieces that are easy to swap. I have never liked ear buds or similar and when I first got the AirPods I wasn’t sure, I didn’t see how they would stay in my ears. But they do, like really well and are very comfortable. I can run in them and they don’t fall out but also I can sleep with them in.

This is one of those things where I was just fine with the inexpensive wired headphones included with my phone until someone let me try their pricey bluetooth noise-cancelling headphones. Then all of a sudden the free ones weren't good enough and I couldn't live without the ones for hundreds of dollars.

Damn you Edgar!

Not a fan of in-ear headphones myself. I bought a on-ear set from Bose that I absolutely love. As mentioned before in another post, they're worth every penny.

Then I received a free pair of Beats over-the-ear when I bought my new MacBook Pro. I haven't picked up the Bose since.

If you haven't made your mind up yet, Amazon has some decent ones for Prime Day, including Bose.

I had those for a while and thought they sounded pretty good. But, the wire between them still annoyed me when using them while moving around. When Apple dropped the price of the AirPods, I decided to try them and I really like them. Sound is only slightly better than the SoundPeats, but they stay connected better and the ability to charge in the case on the go is a plus.

I've considered upgrading to the AirPod Pros, but I have never had an issue with the regular Air Pods falling out or being uncomfortable. But, I don't run or bike with them. If I did, I would probably try the Pros, but it's hard to justify the extra $70 or $80 when I haven't had an issue with the regular ones coming out.

On or over the ear does give you better sound, but I find if I'm outside or moving around, they are just too hot to wear.
