    I'm interested. What's the Guru3d's audiophile's opinion on them? I ordered an off-brand pair off of Amazon a while ago and they should be here soon.

    I have a pair of these, bought them October 2021 and they are still working just fine.
    Panasonic RZ-S500WE-W True Wireless Earbuds with Dual Hybrid Noise Cancelling, Alexa Built-In and IPX4 Water Resistance, White: Amazon.co.uk: Electronics & Photo
    The phone app that you need works well and allows you to easily flip between the external sound cancelling, normal and external sound enhancing, the sound cancelling is particularly good strong.
    I think i paid over £100 for them and they are now £78.
    They are great for normal use but for running they are heavy (ish) so might loosen after a while.
    Sound quality if great as well.

    I have bose sport,

    https://www.amazon.com/Bose-Sport-Earbuds-Earphones-Headphones/dp/B08CJCTG6Z
    the newer smaller model and they sound great.

    Great rich overal sound stange, wired classic version sounded fuller and more balanced at first, maybe a touch more midrange, but after time these breaked in and sound just as good.. ok i had to make tiny EQ adjustments but nothing overblown.


    although they're not perfect noise canceling though and caller can hear wind if Im driving on a bicycle and me if listening to music, but at higher volume it's not a real problem, the music listening part.

    Also at times I don't hear traffic so I tend not to listen too loud.


    That said, the more you pay the better sound gets. I never tried anything no name though, had a feeling it will be bad.


    Edit; funny how price went up.. they use to be 130-150$ max 2-3years ago. now 189$..

    I've used the Apple pro's and cause one of them failed to do anc. I've switched to Sony with their xm4. Sometimes they start going out of my ear, but for anc and sound quality I think they are great. Quite expensive and nowadays everybody that I know which had xm4's switches to the newer version and with their own eartips.

    I decided to include wireless headphones because for some reason both devices became unpaired and showed up as two when I tried pairing with my phone or PC. Unfortunely my anger got the best of me and I can't return them. At least they weren't all that expensive. I payed gas station/dollar store/pharmacy/whatever money for them. What was I expecting anyway? It's 26$ for wireless headsets with a built-in mic.

    I forgot oneodio had wireless headphones and I decided to look at their website for a while. Not only that I thought I'd be better off going with the Walmart quality side of things and my phone doesn't have a 3.5mm jack.

    I bought the Studio pro wireless C's:

    I think I can connect them both to my phone and PC at the same time.

    I must be in the ghost town part of the forum.

    There can be a really good discussion about bluetooth audio quality and latency. :D

    One thing I noticed when I had those earbuds is that there was an audio delay.

    In regards to Windows and Bluetooth audio, even 24H2 does not support many of the advanced codecs, like aptX HD or LDAC. You need to either get a BT dongle whose drivers add these features (alas Intel does not include this, but the Sennheiser BTD600 adds it) or use software that does, like Alternative A2DP Bluetooth driver from bluetoothgoodies.com. I have this, and it works very nicely with my MTM-100 over aptX-HD over my Intel BT. The latest build adds aptX Low Latency support.

    Oh, that needs to be payed for. I found a program that's only a few dollars on the Microsoft store called 'Magicpods'. It has a low latency option.

    Yes, the A2DP Driver is $5 for initial license and less for additional computers. MagicPods seems dedicated to Airpods / Beats products.

    It works with unsupported earbuds. Hopefully it works with the headphones I bought.

    I only plan on using the low-latency option from it if it picks up the headphones... which I know aren't earbuds. Imma try it out anyway.
