    How is the microphone? Can the person you're talking to hear you clearly?

    The mic worked ok for other people to hear me on conference calls. My coworkers said they were able to hear me just fine, issue was my voice was so loud in my ears that I couldn’t turn the volume up enough to hear a as soft spoken teammate

    Why are these not returnable? Other Sony earbuds on Amazon are.

    Amazon is weird. Sometimes the item allows for returns and sometimes it doesn't. A few days ago, returns wasn't available for this item but I checked today and I was able to process the return.

    Can you use the left or right while charging the other?

    You can you use either right or left independently, but you lose half of the push button abilities that the headphones have.

    Do they come with wings or anything to help keep them in ears?

    No wings. The ear buds are pretty light weight and the rubber tips have worked well for me (including while running).

    How many mics do these earbuds have?

    If you want to wear only one it must be the left one. If you want to rotate the left one between ears that is what you would have to do.

      I tried Sennheiser Momentum 2, Air Pod pro and Jabra but I found this one – for at least the price point – outbid them all in sound detail and comfort. I used it for hours continously with out feeling any discomfort in my ear.I am specially blown by the audio quality and detail, it may need a little work around on EQ found on the app to find your best test. The spatial/360 audio is a bonus with my Amazon music subscription.I didn’t expected all these quality features for a price of $110.App is great. Excellent equalizer and customizing the buds function buttons is wonderful.I may update my reviews once I used it longer.I highly recommended for ear comfort and rich audio quality.

      I’m not too fussy with products as long as they work ok. I paid $99cad for this and it sounds and feels like a $99 product. Don’t expect this to be on par with a $200+ ear bud. Everything seems to be working just fine. May or may not update review after some months of using this product. Only saying “may not” because I might forget lolThe box on the back says it’s for Iphone/ipod and doesn’t say anything about Android but it actually works for Androids as I’m using it with my Samsung Galaxy S21 Android phone.Overall I like these ear buds. They fit nice and won’t fall out even after shaking my head to test it out. Comes with multiple silicone ear piece for ppl with different ear sizes which is great.

      – Overall Pros & Cons— Pros: Sound quality, style, and battery life— Cons: Fit, controls, and sound isolation- Sound Quality | 9.5/10 Sound quality is probably one of the most important things when looking for a pair of earbuds, and the sound quality on these are insane! After some EQ adjustments and a healthy increase in bass, these were truly thumping. Highs were pronounced and clear, mids were vibrant, and bass was stellar. The sound quality on these are better than my Bose QC45, which are over-ear headphones. The ClearBass EQ tuning gives you the subwoofer like thumpy, rumbling bass that so many people love. If you are an audiophile, these things likely wont impress you, however for the price range and for the average listener, these are absolutely amazing.- Style | 9/10 Personally these knock it out of the park with styling. The matte white color and circular shape makes these look premium, something above the glossiness of the Apple Airpods line. They look very modern and minimalistic, something that goes well with plain clothing, but they are large and will stand out. Whether that is a good thing or a bad thing is up to you.- Fit | 6/10 I really was hoping for a good fit, however even with the small size eartips they felt a bit stiff. They don’t fall out of your ear, however you really have to force them into your ear to get that great sound. They do give you that “plugged” feeling, however it does become less noticeable after a few minutes. Overall, I wish the fitment was better.- Battery | 10/10 These thing’s batteries are crazy! I can go a full day and end up with 70% battery left, and the charging case holds a lot of charge. This relieves so much stress, as I don’t feel the need to charge these every night, or charge the case everyday.-Controls | 3/10 This was just a huge mistake, the hard buttons instead of a touch capacitive are just plain clunky. If you are in a situation where you need to wear gloves often, these are great, however I can’t think of any other time where they would be better than touch functions. Pushing the buttons either jams the earbuds into your ear, shifts them out of place, or plain causes them to fall out. I opt to use my phone for audio controls anyways, if you plan to do the same then you’re fine, however these buttons are a real headache to use.-Sound Isolation | 7/10 These do not have ANC (Active Noise Cancelling). The plugging of the ears with the silicone tips is enough to “block” sound, but not “cancel” it. This are fine for libraries, schools, cafe’s, and even in cars, however I would not try to use these on planes, in crowded areas, or anywhere with a substantial amount of ambient noise.-Summary- For my purpose, these are perfect. I was just looking for something to listen to music with, something with great sound quality, and something that was stylish. This does all that and more, however its drawbacks being controls, sound isolation, and fitment could influence your decision to buy these. I would honestly recommend these if you are on a budget, the value proposition is amazing with these earbuds. Overall, if you are a casual listener, someone who just wants to hear high quality music and look stylish while at it, these are it.

    4. melkamu

      I really like these earbuds in general. They sound good, they connect to your device easily whether you’re using both or just one headphone (I often wear just one headphone for podcasts and audiobooks and many brands don’t support both L and R headphones being used singly) they have good range and they’re light and stay in my ear even if I run, and I have very small ears. They go nice and loud and block out outside noise pretty well! The battery life is good and the case can fully charge the buds a few times and does it very quickly, which is awesome.These would be perfect and I would buy ten pairs if only their buttons weren’t so badly designed and terrible. Both earbuds have a button that is essentially the whole outside of the bud. These buttons are HYPER sensitive – for instance sometimes my hood or toque presses them when I turn my head. The one in the right ear pauses and plays your audio, and the one in the left ear turns the volume up. They can’t be disabled or remapped. This also means that if you’re only wearing the left bud, you have no ability to start/stop audio without using your device. If you’re only using one bud, the button should default to start/pause, but these don’t do that. So I just keep accidentally making my audio louder when I intend to pause!Anyways, these would be the best headphones in the world if their buttons needed more than a stiff breeze to activate, and their buttons could do what you want them to do – but neither of those things are true, so these are 3 or 4 star headphones, unfortunately.

      These basic wireless headphones from Sony get the job done. The sound quality is average but good enough. Truth is, most streaming is of such low quality, the headphones almost do not matter. One would have to listen to a stream direct from a CD or like media to hear a difference.Back to the headphones. My only complaint is the play/pause button. It is the entire side of the right headphone, so when you first insert into your ear, yep, you hit the button. Want to adjust the fit? You hit the button. Not a deal breaker, but an annoyance. Would be nice if that button were on the side.Included with the headphones is a robust USB-C charging case. Silicone ear bud covers are also included for those with small ears, like me!

    7. Benjamin Niemczyk

      Sound is good. Bass is good. These are small ear buds not headphones so they can only get as loud as earbuds can.Phone call are clear. They stay in ear and do no fall out. On occasion I have used them 5 hours and still have a lot of battery left. The finish on them is matte, so I think they can get stains if not careful. Very satisfied with purchase.Note that after placing earbuds inside case, light turns on and stay on for 10 mins. I don’t know why, however it doesn’t affect anything.Doesn’t have a find my earbuds option but you can turn on and off from your app and blast music and hopefully hear the music playing, if it’s not too loud where you misplaced it. Also from your app you can adjust the volume controls.

    8. Sonny

      The only wireless earbuds I have bought so far.I have had these almost 2 months and have about 300 hours of use so far and have had no problems.The app it works with is decent and lets you do some sound customizations and keep track of how much you use them. They come with 3 different ear piece sizes and can fit pretty comfortably. They do pretty well with noise cancellation as I work in a loud environment and they tune out sounds very well even with music at very low volume.With about 8 hours of use per day I can go 6 days of use before the batteries completely deplete.So overall for the price (I paid 68$) it is 100% worth it for the use I have gotten out of them so far. Hopefully they last a long time, but these first few months have been working great.

      When I first tried them out I wasn’t blown away by the sound quality, but after playing around with the equalizer I feel like I get VERY good sound from these things, listening to a variety of genres: hip-hop, reggaeton, rock, classical etc it all sounds good to me. I’ve had them for about a week and only charged them for an hour or two upon first receiving them; have not had to plug them in since. Connection to both my iphone and macbook are good and typically very fast/instantaneous.Some minor complaints that I didn’t feel were worth taking a full star off for:- some people have mentioned a hiss when no music is playing. I do experience this occasionally, but it’s very quiet and brief. It really doesn’t bother me and it’s something I’ve noticed in other bluetooth headphones so idk whether or not it’s reasonable to expect a budget model to have a totally imperceptible noise floor.- case is cute and well-designed but I do wish the lid felt a bit sturdier.- as others have pointed out, the buttons on the sides are big and easy to accidentally press, but I feel like once you get used to them being there it’s not a big deal, just wouldn’t be the best option for sleeping inI keep these in my bookbag so they’re always on hand at work, the gym, etc. These do not have active noise cancellation but I feel like the passive noise cancellation is pretty good and I don’t have to turn the volume up high at all to drown out ambient noise. Since I’m very pleased with these earbuds, I may treat myself sometime to one of Sony’s over-ear headphones as a noise cancelling option.
