Meh the community has decided our next mission is to make you sell meh t shirts again. We want to represent our communities in the most average way we can, you know you wanted another movement to happen so here it is. I will post this every day until the t shirt sale happens. Apparently the community is getting greedy with the shirts and they need more than just one simple meh shirt. No the community apparently wants meh shirts for every occasion listed here: @surfeit wants a cat meh shirt, @wstull1 wants one that says “I bought candy corn at meh”, @nolrak wants one that says “I still have most of the candy corn I bought from Meh”, @stallion wants a #speakerdock shirt, @jst1ofknd wants a faces of meh shirt, and @j8048188 wants a " “stealth” meh shirt. (the black shirt with black text on it)".
@reclaimercube How about a MEH shirt with a cat on it… stuffed inside a BUBBA mug/tumbler/bottle??? The shirt with the cat on it would be inside the bottle…don’t want to be responsible for any kitty mashing.
@Kidsandliz I don’t know how to add that to my blurb without confusing myself. A flask shirt? A shirt that has a flask? Or a shirt that you can drink from? Or a shirt that has a pocket in the center like iron Man for a flask or a shirt with just a picture of a flask? Clarity is appreciated!
I am assuming that since there’s phone functionality, there’s a microphone somewhere in these.
I have LG Tones that work just fine and the battery lasts a long time. But these are so tiny, they’re like sticking the future in your ear holes. And I should still have a coupon code hanging out in my account. I might have to bite.
OTOH, these are so tiny. I bet I can lose one of them really fast.
I bought those GabbaGoods TrueBuds in a deal that was up on Meh a while back, and the thing that always irked me about those was that you’d turn them on for a few minutes, and then put them in their case, and they wouldn’t start charging unless you pressed a Power button or something like that to explicitly turn them off and start charging - they’d actually stay on and connected to the phone, while in the charging case, and just run down the battery, so if you forgot to press the right button(s), they’d all be dead the next time you took them out (and, even when they were charged, they’d scarcely last an hour).
@stuartpb I have the iamsound branded version of these. They each bud will turn off if you put them in the charging case (as long as the case has some juice left). if you put the master earpiece in, they will both turn off and if you put the slave earpiece in the master earpiece will switch to mono mode
I have a problem sticking a battery in my ear for 3 hours discharging along the way, however I’m urged to buy this anyway because of the severe discount the kind only you get from Meh and the Meh team.I’ll sleep on it for now hmmmm.tick/tock.
I have the 1 bud (mono version?) of this design with a different name on what looks to be identical construction. They are nice but not compelling. Went back to a horse collar set. My gripes… easy to misplace…short battery life…sort of muted sound quality…sounds like not much dynamic range…sort of compressed…no highs or lows…Meh
I have found that using bluetooth in-ear headphones with a neck band (a la LG Tones) is worth the extra geekiness because when I need to yank one out to pretend I am listening to my wife or the cop that pulled me over, the wire makes the bud nearly impossible to lose. I fear that I would quickly misplace the one I popped out while feigning attentiveness, making me that much angrier for the forced interaction interruption.
@Bumplepimp I’ve found them comfortable and I’ve been using/testing them for a couple weeks. I normally wear airpods and they’re as comfortable as those. I actually have a significant other who snores and while I couldn’t comfortably wear my airpods to bed, these are my new best friend because I can sleep with them in. That said, everyone I’m sure will have a different experience with comfort.
That wouldn’t happen if Meh sent VMP mehmbers (or any mehmber) an email to update their expiring cards 2-3 months before they did. Just sayin’.
No PCI issue with storing just the expiration month in yymm form for sorting (or better, the ‘update your CC info’ reminder month, calculated and set once, from the entered (stored for existing) card info).
I was just suggesting something to move the Meh user experience (which all of us are living the dream) less towards the “sucks” and more towards the “mediocre” end of the spectrum.
Not trying to solve other websites’ problems. If you have this same problem with other websites, suggest this solution to them, or don’t do business with them (and buy more stuff on meh.com).
@RedOak I actually did do that earlier this morning! LOL. But meh.com noticed the added account. (Same IP, I guess, not sure.) I’m not willing to jump through any more hoops for this. They win…2’s the limit. Maybe I can catch one or 2 on Morningsave.
I have a pair of these branded by iamsound, but looking at the pictures, they’re exactly the same. One bud binds to your phone and the other to that bud. If you only turn on the one bound to your phone, it combines both channels instead of giving you just the right side, which I thought was cool, Especially since I lost one of them, but still occasionally use just one when i want to hear what’s around me more. I think they get interrupted a bit more than other Bluetooth headphones, which was disappointing for the price I paid for them, but I never tried a factory reset to fix this. The other thing that was weird about them is that the buttons are set up for calling instead of music control. You can pause, but long hold and double tap are voice control and redial, there’s no skip song.
@Barney Yer gonna need some smart light bulbs to control with your new phone. And some regular blue tooth speakers. A new case for your phone is advisable as well. How much money do you have? You can trust us, we can find you ALL THE BLUE TOOTH THINGS.
@sammydog01 I know, I know I need to get it hooked up. It’s a mental thing…
You sure you could spare a speaker? I’d hate to leave you short. (I’m pretty sure I have one somewhere around here.) Actually, I was taking bets with myself, when the earbuds first popped up, as to whether or not you bought any. I bet you did. Did I win?
@eguillen88 I don’t think so. The left is the primary. I don’t think you can use the right without the left. It’s half the complaints about the right cutting out because it would lose signal from the left so you’d have to adjust the antenna so they’re aligned…not that it matters now.
Got mine today and am currently enjoying them in my ear holes after charging the case and then charging the buds.
Bass gets a little distorted at higher volumes but at casual listening levels they sound pretty decent. The build quality feels solid and the magnetic charger’s use of the metal construction of the buds to provide contacts is pretty slick. My first impression is a good one.
I didn’t reread any instructions, just fumbled through the pairing process by instinct. For some reason they said “second device connected” when they paired. Maybe I’ll look up the factory reset tomorrow. I had a couple of right-channel drops and one both channel drop right when I started playing with them, but no problems after the first two or three minutes.
Edit: I saw what was said about the lights above and walked into the bathroom to look in the mirror. I was projecting strobe lights on the wall in the dark room. The flashing lights are a little ridiculous but probably serves to explain to the person trying to talk to me why I’m apparently ignoring them.
I also got more right channel dropouts when I came back to the place where I first put them in, so there might be some environmental interference.
The audio quality on these is fine. But nearly every thing else about them sucks. Even after the reset process, they still drop connection every 20-40 minutes.
They also have a ramp-up when they start audio.
I have yet to have a proper low-battery notification.
These are a product I would not willingly sell to other people, although they do have a nice pretty finish.
I can’t get them to stay connected. The one is constantly playing in the right channel is always not working and less I take the one out of my left ear and move it closer to the right one. Sound quality is actually pretty good if they would ever play out of both ears while in my ears
Delivered Saturday, these are awesome! They feel like old school wired earbuds as far as comfort, cancels out most of the open office noise, fits in ears well. Not using for answering calls at this point, but the sound quality is excellent. no connection issues, using with Kindle Fire currently, no problem pairing. Only problem, co workers can’t tell I have earbuds in and are having conversations with me I never hear.
The range is shockingly short. Audio drops in and out when my phone (Apple SE) is in my jeans pocket. OK when I’m in a chair and my phone is on a nearby desk or flat surface.
Audio is tinny. Which is fine for podcasts. Actually better than fine since that boosts dialog frequencies.
I haven’t really conducted a battery time test yet. The one time I ran out of juice it was just over an hour listening to the Tony Kornheiser Show (which is great, btw). Not ideal for long walks or runs, but reasonable for most use.
I’m waiting for the next-gen Apple earbuds, but until then I’ll use these.
Been using mine for a little over a week, and overall, they’re not bad as far as usability and sound quality, especially for the “meh” price.
However, the connectivity leaves a lot to be desired. I will frequently lose audio in one or both ears when I put my phone into my pocket. I’ve tried making sure the buds are aligned in my ears as people have suggested. When I put them in the charger, I almost always wind up doing the “factory reset” by holding down the buttons on each bud, as their site instructs. This sometimes seems to help a little for the next time I use the buds, but the next morning, it’s back to dropping audio more frequently.
I work in Manhattan, so I’m not unaccustomed to having spotty bluetooth audio, especially at traffic intersections, but I’ve had a couple other cheap pairs of SoundPEATS buds that both had more consistent connections, and I never really had trouble with them when not walking around the city.
For the price, they’re alright, and the charging tube is nice to have, but I think I’ll be sticking with my other pair for now.
The earbuds themselves are OKAY. Sound quality is surprisingly good for the size of the earbuds. If I hold really still, they work great. If I turn my head far enough left to check traffic, they cut out. They cut out again when I look right. If I use them for optimal sound quality, I’ll likely be hit by a bus. Not ideal. Connection stability degrades significantly in the presence of sweat.
If personal safety is of concern or you are a human who sweats these aren’t a great option for running or biking.
This bizarre thing looks like a lipstick tube and it collects paper clips or other bits of metal in my bag. Sometimes it falls apart when being carried in my bag. It’s not very practical.
Still, for the price, I like them well enough I guess.
I’m listening to these while working in a store being remodeled right now. On a whim I left my phone on the desk and went for a walkabout to see how the signal fared.
I had to go outside to get a dropout (the windows are tinted with what may be a metallic coating).
I took this pic with my back against the front door. My phone is laying on a table inside that door in the back. I’m, idk, 40 feet and a wall away and rock solid to an iPhone X. I confirm my thumbs up on this purchase.
