@ACustomer@joelmw A Customer that maybe new? Four letter words abound, small minds not so much. We even keep a running tally and promote the “FUCK” count.
We are also very open and embracing of new posters. We love them. But if you do not like snarky, kind, offensive, charitable, foul mouthed, and knowledgeable people it may Irk you more than it should.
We take our freedoms and responsibilities quite seriously - ok, sometimes not
Also, don’t I remember you posting in the past about language here?
edit: Haha…I was right! @sohmageek What’s the matter with your foul
mouth? - or is that the level of English you have learned?

@joelmw If I had a nickel for every time my Bluetooth earbuds died on me or I forgot to charge them, I would have enough to buy the stupid adapter and these headphones… but then I wouldn’t be able to charge my phone!!! GAAHHHH!!!
/giphy bring back the headphone jack
@hchavers Tell you what, I can sell a bunch to you for $20 (that’s over half off your quoted price, as I think even you should be able to see). How do I get them so cheap? Worry not; I got this. And since they’re apparently $50 where you are, you could sell them at a discount and still make a shitload of money (e.g., at 20% off, you’d still make $20 for each one you sold). How about it? You wanna make some money? I’m here for you; just let me know.
I’m in for two sets - iPhone for my boys, Android for me. I bought a pair of these years ago and they have great sound…and since I am death to headphones (I am always catching wires on things and ripping them), I much prefer to pick up good sound quality for ten bucks and set them aside than have to use headphones that regularly retail for $10 and sound like tin can telephones.
I’m always on the lookout for cheap/good sounding headphones, but these tonight won’t work for me.
I had wrap around ear headphones before and they hurt me, I must be bigger than average above my neck because I can’t find glasses that fit my head either. I bought these before Christmas and had to use all the XL accessories for these to fit: https://www.jbl.com/great-outdoors-sale/UA+WIRELESS.html
Is there an in-line microphone on both of these, or just the iPhone one? I honestly never really use the in-line remote (other than the single button to pick up/stop a call or start/stop music), but I do want the microphone itself.
@Kawa For future reference, you can look at the plug to determine if there is no microphone. Notice the Android version has 3 separated sections of metal on the plug separated by 2 green stripes. That gives a conductor for a ground, a left speaker, and a right speaker (3 conductors total).
The iPhone version has 4 conductors separated by 3 green stripes. That gives conductors for a ground, a left speaker, a right speaker, and one left over for a microphone. This does not guarantee that the 4th conductor is being used for a microphone but the absence of a 4th conductor is practically a guarantee it doesn’t have one.
@cengland0@Kawa Weirdly I have a cheapo 3 stripe (four conductors) earbuds set and the remote works fine on my G5. But it doesn’t have a volume control, just the single button to pause/play which is really handy. Wondering if the “iPhone” one might actually work for my phone in that way, I don’t really care if I can’t fidget with the volume control.
Latency, having to charge the battery, and sometimes sound quality. Personally, I think it’s a great trade-off for not having to deal with wires, but Bluetooth sometimes doesn’t make it any easier.
@TOaFK That’s like asking why would anyone ever ride a bicycle now that cars are a thing now. Maybe some cannot afford a car. Then you have to pay insurance and buy gas. There’s a lot of maintenance you have to do with a car that you don’t need to do with a bicycle. Cars will break down on you leaving you stranded in the middle of the road.
Have you ever wanted to use your bluetooth device and then the battery was either, dead, doesn’t hold a charge, or keeps cutting in and out because of either distance or interference?
I’m a believer in the “buy them before you need them” approach, but not this time. I’m not getting another product dedicated to an iPhone. As soon as I find a way to break the contract entitling them to my first-born child if I ever leave, I’m switching to an Android. Bluetooth headphones have been the only thing that I could count on up until now. I guess I should just say goodbye to the kid.
If you’re looking for recommendations, I strongly recommend the Pixel phones. Yes, they are expensive, but they will soon come out with mid-price and low-price models. If you frequently take photos, the Pixel 3 (and 3 XL) is widely considered to have the best camera. Just that makes it worth the price.
I am finally giving these things a try. I think I accidentally ordered the ones for iPhone instead of Android, but they still work as earbuds.
+They wrap around my ear, so they do not fall out easily
+They are clear and crisp sounding
+They are ANNOYINGLY Yellow, which makes them easy to see
-I have to use the volume control on the phone as opposed to the doodad hanging on the wire
-They are very tinny. Like a lot. Like a car radio from the early 80s with only one speaker in the dash. All treble, all the time.
-They still fall out if I move my head a bunch, like during exercise. This is supposedly what they were created for, but it isn’t working so much.
Moral: These will be in my workout bag, but not in my computer/carry-on bag. I need something of much better sound quality for being on a plane.
