@mike808 I have a pair of those, FYI, Those are just ‘KZ’ earbuds Linsoul is just some reseller trying to create a unique name for their listing.
Great earbuds, but the tiny connecting piece of the cable is real delicate. Buy spare cables. Also, wireless can’t compare to wired. There’s a convenience factor to wireless but for sound quality wired is unmatched.
@pixelated For this youtube video, one can turn on the autogenerated Closed Captions and then in the settings turn on autotranslate and Google will translate enough of it to English or any other language so one can get the gist of what’s being said. (Oh, I’m using a browser, and not the native android youtube app.)
@pixelated I love listening to this guy’s reactions even if I don’t understand a word of it. I did put captions on, which was pretty funny. I plan on using these with my macbook. I am tired of my airpods switching back and forth during a phone call. Even though I have the settings set correctly, so I just never use them with my computer.
@guyfromhawthorn@phrostyphace I don’t think VMP memberships are available anymore, so you have to be one of the few <strikeout>suckers</strikeout> early adopters that started the VMP subscription years ago to access the 4PM Eastern resupply. Note this is not to be confused with the pause till (I forget when exactly) the morning eastern that meh sometimes places on quickly selling items, so people that don’t stay up to 3AM on the east coast have a chance at getting some “meh” for themselves.
Right, you can’t be on old school VMP like me, but I thought you could still sign up for whatever the heart icon version of membership is. I’m getting damned old so I forgot already what that one was, but I thought it was just mehmbership
Edit: just membership and you can see it on the FAQs https://meh.com/faq
Blendtec, Deebot in an IRK, BK Dutch Oven, these might be my in my top 5 meh purchases. I am not an audiophile, but have decent hearing, and these things really sound nice. Noise cancelling is quite impressive. I know these sold out quickly, but if meh procures more, I will max out. Awesome find.
Does anyone else hear soft white noise when turning on ANC without any audio playing (mostly on the right ear)? I know it’s not noticeable with audio playing, but my Anker Q30 over the ears doesn’t do that. I’m wondering if it’s just my right earbud that’s defective or if everyone’s does it.
If I take off the right earbud then put it back in, there’s a few seconds when it isn’t there then the ANC kicks in and I hear it again. The left earbud has a very very faint noise but the right earbud is much more noticeable.
@FirstLast87 hmm that seems to suggest that different units have different amounts of that static noise when using ANC. The left one is so soft compared to the right one for mine. Hopefully @troy and @KNmeh7 can chime in as they said the ANC was great and it may be something we can try to get exchanged under warranty
I am impressed with the build quality and sound. This is a n exceptionally nice pair of earbuds for what we paid here. I wouldn’t call this audiophile quality but the sound isolation is pretty good. It’s interesting how you can use a slider to control how much external ambience you hear – right in the middle of the sIider is no enhancement (but good isolation), while going either direciton either increases the ANC or the enhanced input from the mics pulling in ambient sound.
I haven’t yet figured out how to keep a solid connection with my ear/head so I don’t see these as ideal for workouts.
Context: I own Beyerdynamic DT770, Ultrasones, Bower & Wilkins PX, Master & Dynamic MW60s and a pair of Etymotic ER4SR that just landed from Woot. I also have some of the Meh Libratone offerings from last year and use a couple sets of JBL/sports-type earbuds. So I have a mix of wired and Bluetooth.
@bmajazz is this your first ANC earbud? My ANC over the ear (Anker Q30) doesn’t have the white noise / static sound but these have it in my right earbud. Another here said both earbuds have the noise which leads me to think it is a unit by unit issue.
I read that someone got defective Sony WF-1000XM4 that had a low static noise when on ANC and would return/exchange them. The noise really gets on my nerves like how some laptop fans do, to the point I still use a fanless m5 6y57.
I got a good secure seal by using the small wing plus medium tip (as it arrived out of the box) and rotating it like my Anker Liberty 2 Pro (put them in then rotate the top of the earbud toward the back of the head around 45 degrees). However I cannot do this with the medium or large wings, which makes me think wearing it this way isn’t intended. The intended ways are all loose to me also.
@bmajazz if I use the medium wings, then all I can do is wiggle it around to try to seat it in better. I can get a good seal with minimal pressure with wiggling (good for wearing a long time), but it easily comes unseated with a slight nudge. If I use the small wings, then I can do the wiggle or rotate. Wiggle is similar to the medium, and the rotate makes the tip put a lot more pressure and doesn’t unseat as easily (good for up to an hour when I don’t want it to fall).
I got used to the rotate/pressure from the Anker Liberty 2 Pro and was surprised it worked well for this Kenwood. I want ANC earbuds because I fell in love with the quiet of the over the ears ANC. I know that earbuds can’t compare in noise reduction, but I can wear earbuds for much longer than headphones. Right now I’m using this Kenwood without ANC because of the static issue, but it is more comfortable for extended use than my Ankers
I think they are the small or medium. The case gets stuck when closed. I can pry it open but it requires putting a shim inside the crack between the case body and lid, then futzing around to give it enough clearance.
