Hi there! I need your help. I need new “ear speakers” of some sort. The dude in this photo needs some serious help IMHO…it looks just way too cold to be out running around…
But seriously. I have been using some Jaybird X3 ear buds and I have not been happy since day 1. Okay maybe not day 1 maybe like sometime within the first 3 months.
Connectivity is the worst for these. I think that maybe, if being generous, 30% of the time I have worn these I had zero problems. Otherwise, I am always losing the connection, music or sound breaks up and either Spotify or Pocket Cast will stop playback.
Another issue is I have never been 100% thrilled with the sound. I know that I did not pay a lot for the Jaybird X3, however, I have some cheap headphones & earbuds in the studio for extra guests that have a richer sound.
What I want to do with these new “ear speakers” is wear them when I am out running errands or I am exercising. Be it walking and, if I am lucky enough, again when I am running. The biggest thing is I want to be able to hear the beat over the traffic zipping past me.
I think I prefer earbuds instead of over the ear. Especially in summer; but also for lack up bulk. If I am walking to the pub to meet my buds, I really don’t want to have to drag around my bulky headphones.
Please…share your ideas and links!
