Great bluetooth earplugs with surprisingly good quality. A lot of folks are getting mad when these things break after a few months; for a lot of folks using earplugs though we know somewhat delicate electronics are not going to last forever under the rigors of our work. Mine have finally broken after about 5 months and I’m not upset about it; hell every pair of earbuds I’ve ever owned have lasted no longer than a month. 5 months of constantly being put in and out of my ears, getting yanked on when moving large wood slabs and they get caught between the slab and my chest, getting covered in stains and other finishes. The silicon tips are absolutely excellent and don’t irritate my ears at all like other silicon earplugs I’ve tried. The volume reduction does seem like it is a tiny bit less than solid earplugs; but they still reduced all noise an exceptional amount; still able to hear my podcasts while running 40″ wide slabs through our 42″ 70+ year old planer (one of the loudest things I’ve ever heard lol, whenever somebody starts it everyone in the shop instinctually puts in their earplugs haha). My left earplugs finally stopped putting out audio this morning; leaving them kinda broken – though earplugs with bluetooth in one ear is still much preferable to silence for me. Battery lasts playing constantly that it’s usually almost out by lunch, charge during my 30 minute lunch break and then it usually lasts me the rest of the 9 hour work day; though I have been considering getting a second pair so I can swap them out whenever the battery dies; and it looks like I’ll be ordering a new pair to be my main set of earplugs and relegate this one ear pair to use while the new one is charging. And for anyone who was specifically interested in the neck-strap type design that keeps it around your neck, the ruckus design works absolutely great even though it doesn’t “clamp” down on your neck like all the headband earplugs I always preferred before I got these. You just put the strap on the back of your neck and let the earplugs hang down the front of your chest when not in use, and just grab them and pop them in when needed. Oh and my work is inside of a huge old factory building so no air conditioning and lots of strenuous work; I’ve pulled these earplugs off literally dripping in sweat before and I’ve never had an issue. They’ve only fallen off once and I was crawling around half upside down in close quarters, and I could’ve grabbed them and stopped them from falling if my hands weren’t already full! But if you too are looking for a review from the perspective of another “maker” type; I love these earplugs. 5 months is more than acceptable for a pair of wireless electronic earplugs that got used as hard as mine.

Great product. Arrived on time
They work greatz when they work. They need some TLC with quality control. Theres something wrong with the board or brain box where it does random stiff like disconnect random and sometimes not connect. Otherwise they’re really great.

This is the second pair of these headphones I have bought, both have become faulty at 6 months with one of the headphones completely dying. Don’t waste your money.
Unlike other reviewers I’m not sneaking music at work. I have anxiety issues and LOUD sounds is a trigger! But I like to play pool in bars. Today’s “music” is not my style nevertheless when played extremely loud. The original plugs didn’t do the job. So I tried the bigger (included earplugs) speakers. This made me so very happy. It Actually works! Even strong heavy bass (when my Bluetooth music is playing) blocks it Totally out! The exact answer I’ve been looking for!Now I’m a poor boy but this product isDefinitely worth the price. If you can put a price on serenity. The Quality of sound isn’t sacrificed; particularly for streaming through Bluetooth. I LOVE THIS DEVICE!To underline how much; I very rarely post my opinions or experiences about anything. But I simply had to for these. Of course there is a little discomfort if in for a long time. And it would be an acceptable trade off. But I just pull slightly out then push back in. The discomfort is short-lived. However the 2 hour Charge is very long lasting-10hrs+Anxiety can stop you in your tracts, steal away happy possibilities. This has allowed me to have fun when chaos is all around. BTW I consider these earbuds my secret weapon. Because I have My Favorite Music in my ears as I’m kicking ass in pool.So I’d say whether for work or play this product is your answer! The Only drawback is I had trouble with the small wire clips (at least with a t-shirt) That’s the Only problem I had. And it’s possible I didn’t do it right.I HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!-ENJOY
Had these for two weeks and my left ear bud malfunctions. It still works but everytime I move my head a certain why it’s makes a squealing noise.
The sound on these is better than I expected.As is the reduction of external noise.Unfortunately, the plugs are a little too large for my ear canals making them very uncomfortable too quickly.The left speaker crackles and cuts out when the cable moves too and it did this right out of the box.

I have had 3 pairs now. One pair stopped charging after a month or so, I broke the second pair, and the third pair will suddenly die after 3 hours of use sometimes. The 3rd pair did this after the third day of use and the problem comes and goes.However, when they work, they work REALLY well. All the air hammers, ratchets and sledgehammers in the shop are reduced to mere background noise, and you can have your device playing relatively quietly. No ringing ears after use. Maybe I’ve just had bad luck.
I was very happy with my earbuds until the right control ear stopped working out of nowhere –
I used them every day at work for safety and communication I’m very disappointed that they quit working

I am impressed with the audio playback quality. I’ve worked with pro audio and sound reinforcement for years and have seen supposed PRO headphones that don’t sound as good as these. No, they aren’t studio quality sound, but they are EARPLUGS that sound really good. Insertion depth will change response, so play around a bit with them.I paired these with my computer and did a sample recording on audacity to see what the mic sound was like, not so good. With the earplug cord resting in a normal use position, the mic location just doesn’t work well at all. When the part with the mic is held up closer, it is usable for a phone call. I tried these on a phone call with a friend and when much noise is present he told me he could only hear a mumbling sound. Without noise he could at least understand me.Bottom line, if you want BT hearing protection with good audio playback and only need them to “work” for a phone call occasionally, these work nicely.

I’ve tried a few different brands of Bluetooth earpro buds and these have been the best. Walkers and ProEars both started having issues with one of the buds have intermittent sound within months. These are much sturdier.
