    Hello. I have a couple of cheap Chinese in ear headphones, but something that I love is that I can pair the left Headphone to my main cell phone and the Right Headphone to my work cell phone at the same time and in a single touch I can pair them both back in stereo. Do you know if I can do that with this headphones?

    I read many rave reviews about the sound quality, and so purchased them. But the ones I have incredibly poor sound, very tinny, much worse than ear buds from the dollar shop. I have tried messing with the settings, and even put it on "BASE" with the equalizer, and still incredibly poor sound. Was wondering if there is a setting I am missing. The sound is really really bad! and No volume!

    1:50 I'm disappointed, as I expected more from LTT. James points to the ear tips and says there are a couple styles, including one that is similar to the airpod style. I've been looking for airpod styled non IEM bluetooth earbuds for a while now, so after watching a couple reviews, I decided to buy them due to this part of this video. However, they're not what James led us to believe at all. In fact, those airpod looking "ear tips" require one of the other standard ear tips to be on the end of them to work for these earbuds. You cannot use them on their own. This has now caused me to need to return the earbuds, and the bluetooth adapter I bought for my pc. I'm disappointed that LTT cannot be trusted as much as I thought.

    Decent unboxing but bad audio analogy. All Anker did is add a port to earbuds. By moving your speakers off the wall you're creating more comb filtering(sound wave cancelation in segments). Put them near the wall and it will do this to higher frequencies but it's not as drastic overall since higher frequencies are very directional and bass frequencies are very omnidirectional. By adding a port into a speaker you get more air flow and bass reflex.

    Don't fall for this. I got suckered by their last soundcore video and the earbuds were absolute crap. Terrible connection, constant hum in the sound, no bass to speak of and really tinny highs. Soundcore is a crap brand, really too bad that ShortCircuit needs money so bad they're shilling them.

    I've been rocking the spirit x for ages now, the ONLY thing I don't like about them is when they get below 15%, there's a little tone that plays every like 30 seconds, and it's so annoying that it makes the bottom 15% of the battery life basically unusable. Otherwise, awesome. I'll probably get a pair of these once I'm back to work.

    You can get bloody amazing IPX8 True Wireless earbuds for $50. My Taotronics Soundliberty 79 (fucking hell that's a mouthful) earbuds are fricking awesome, and they're 30 bucks cheaper than these. I can't speak for the sound quality of the Anker Soundcore earbuds because I haven't used them, but I can say they beat literally every other sound system I've personally ever used or heard, not just earbuds, but sound systems in general, including speakers, headphones, etc. You guys really should check them out. The battery life is incredible. I charge the case once a week and I've never had them go dead on me. There's no ANC, but the passive cancellation is so good I rarely notice. Also the microphones, as per usual it seems, do have Active noise cancellation that works perfectly. You guys should check them out. Taotronics is highly underrated in my opinion.

    The only thing that prevents me from buying this budget eaphones is the aggressive branding. It’s like when you wear this, you’re a walking logo. If they can make a unique design without putting huge ass logos or not making the logo stand out too much. I’d rather buy this things than the Big name ones. Like, at this one, not only that the logo is white, it’s also huge and at the middle. You’ll know an Airpods when you see one, same as galaxy buds, Sony’s etc
