Not only is that my high school nickname, that’s what these things are. I have two sets and the disconnects are bordering legendary. Adding the bigger sized tips prevents them from charging in the base. These things are just a waste of dreams.
I did this deal when it was the classic paintings. One pair worked with a decent battery life, one pair was like the faulty charger cable for your phone. It’d work off and on but was way more hassle than the five minutes it gave you.
Just confirming. I got the starry night ear buds a year or so ago and boy do they suck star and night and a few other things I won’t mention. Battery life is less than 30 minutes, connecting was spotty, the pre-recorded girl telling me “connected” and “sorry” sounded drunk and the sound itself was mediocre at best.
@fastharrydotcom Based on your response I guess you actually have no first hand knowledge about this product and you’re just sharing your uninformed opinion with the rest of us. Thanks for that. Truly. It means a lot.
I saw a mention in the comments section that these had 100% 1 star reviews on Amazon. A couple of things about that…
There were only (3) reviews when I looked. One was actually positive but the user apparently either didn’t understand the star rating just screwed up.
The people reviewing these on Amazon appear to have paid substantially more than $12 for them. I suspect they would have been less harsh in their assessment at $12. Heck, at $12 they probably wouldn’t have wasted the time it took to type the review.
It’s only TWELVE dollars a set. $14.50 with shipping. No one buying these should expect too much out of them. But provided they actually work and don’t cause your ears to fall off they’re probably OK.
I bought these before. The true wireless “advantage” does not compensate for the horrible connectivity. I would rather be hog tied with wires from headphones that sound reasonable than put up with the discomfort, short battery life, and bad sound.
Take your $12 or $14.50 and buy earbuds with wires that will work consistently, you’ll be much happier. These are not even OK.
@wickhameh I bought the rowkin surge on here or morninsave and they have the over the ear holder. Kind of upset because a week later they were on here again being sold with the charging case, but oh well. They work.
@wickhameh@gregormehndel I got the Rowkin Base Line and Base Jump headphones on indiegogo and love them. The Base Jump comes with a little ear hook that should keep it in your ear at the gym if you’re really active. I haven’t had a problem with the Line staying in but I don’t run so I wouldn’t really know.
It would require that I actually “work out,” which I don’t, to answer this question. I have walked my dog while wearing these, as many runners, bikers, and skateboarders passed us, and they did not fall out once.
I second the Rowkin’s. Tried to convince my wife to get a pair, but she insisted on getting Samsung Buds (which she had for two weeks and then lost them on a trip). (Wish I had been out $40 instead of over $100.
Amazon also has the Anker Soundcore for $59 (and possibly $49 if you see the $10 off coupon). These have decent reviews.
I’ve had that experience–bought a cheap pair of earbuds for spares, and “Hey, these actually sound good!” Usually that means there’s poor quality control and a lot of variation in the sound of individual units. So if you happen to get one that’s put together right, you get your money’s worth. Roll the dice.
