Got a pair of these (I think) in a IRK. Honestly, not awful. The fit is mediocre, but they sound fine for podcasts at the least. I love that I can wear them one ear at a time so I can keep my other ear open at work.
I like these alot for the price! Got one in a previous IRK or Mystery Box.
They sound way better than any cheap plastic earbuds. Fit snug in your ear holes. The noise cancellation for me is really good! Sometimes if jogging or outside one side can cut out and fade back in, happens not that often but enough to mention. I get a full 2 hours nonstop playing tell they need to be charged again, which is just place them magnetically into the case. Charge pretty fast, like 10-20 minute charge is good for 1 hour. I also like how you can have one in without the other.
These are now always in my pocket check before i head to work.
If I didnt get them in an IRK I would never of bought them thinking they are more trash earbuds. But pleasantly surprised they are worth the $30!
I got these in a morning save mystery box and they’re just right for this price. Decent sound wearability. However the right channel often disconnects repeatedly when jogging. Haven’t tested enough to know if it’s my phone or the earbuds.
I’ve been waiting for Rowkin to show up here again (I noticed they were on MorningSave & figgered they’d come home to mama), but I’m thinking now about paying an extra $10 at MS for the sport earbuds. They seem lots less likely to disappear on me.
I bought the smaller ones (the “Rowkin Bit”) back in September for my wife. They’ve worked just fine for her. She doesn’t go running with them, just uses them around the house. No disconnection issues that I’ve heard of.
My wired earbuds just bit the dust so I’m in for a pair of these.
I can’t get enough of these earbuds…and now I get to buy another pair. I use them daily as a single earbud to listen to podcasts and youtube videos during work, in the shower, while driving, and to go to sleep, to name just a few. They fit my ears perfect and get a decent battery life… I actually love how no one can tell I have something in under my hat. Because they are small, I’ve lost/broke a couple (lost one yesterday while shopping actually), so I found it nice to stock up on them. My wife thinks I’m crazy, but it doesn’t bother me, because I can just zone into Joe Rogan while she’s talking!
Interesting that these are on sale for $64 for Prime Day, but i’ll be walking around the office, advertising to my coworkers to grab theirs from here!
Also got these in a morningsave mystery box. They sound good, the profile is nice and small, and they get a long life with the battery charger. But they constantly lose connection to my device whenever I move around too much. So, good for flights or desk sitting, not great for working out.
I’ve purchased two different versions of these and one set won’t pair both earbuds anymore while the other pair is stil functional, I’ve also experienced the problem mentioned in other posts, where either one of the earbuds will randomly dis/reconnect for seemingly no reason. As a side note, while these are stereo earbuds in music or video listening, on phone calls sound only comes out of the left one instead of both.
I have these ear buds but with the smaller “tube” shape charger. They sound fine, I never had connection issues. My problem is/was the fit. My ears are average size for every other ear bud and these felt big, had to cram them in a bit. They hurt after about 20-30 minutes or a decent run.
Got these on Morningsave. For me they’re comfortable enough to sleep in (I like that I can use only one at a time), and they sound good for their size. The only issue I have is that their connection is really touchy. You can’t use them with your phone in your pocket (even on the same side of your body), and even with the phone sitting out on a desk or nightstand, you can have cutouts if you shift position.
For me, they work well enough for my intended purpose, which is something I can use to fall asleep listening to podcasts and not wake up tangled up in wires. For everything else…I’m glad I have better bluetooth earbuds.
@haydesigner well they are also the codec that apple products use to create a high quality audio stream over bluetooth. so unless you like the bluetooth mangle on idevices you look for AAC support over the bluetooth stream, and on android you look for either aptx and/or aac (really depends on the model and os your android device is running, in the old days android only did aptx but modern os support both on some phones).
I need reliable ear speakers and the reviews on this pair demonstrated to me that they are aggravating. Pass on the aggravation and thanks for offer but NO. Please show more earbuds. Any chance you can get Bose around the same price for us?
( depraved-inquisitive-bagmust ) I must be the perfect meh customer, I buy and buy and buy and hardly ever use, even worse I Hardly even test the stuff when I receive it. Out of the stuff I have tested it seems that about 10% of the stuff that I do test ends up being defective in one way or the other. MEH is very good about replacing the defective stuff when I contact them but I imagine if I went through and tested everything that I’ve ever got from them from years ago that’s never been opened i’d probably be unpleasantly bummed out/surprised.
And yet I keep on buying for seamlessly no reason except the little impulse my head that says “this is a great deal”. I wonder how many other of us fellow meheains are swept up In this reality non-reality???
My son has that other brand that are White and hang down the side of your face and makes you look like an idiot. He paid around $200 for them and I got them these for $30. anyway… He saw these then wanted to try them out. about 10 min later he came back in and asked if we could trade! He liked how they fit his ears better and that they were not bright white.
I had to laugh at the situation because the quality is the same as the pod thingys.
