Anker is establishing itself as a quality company for me. Who would have thought that a company that got known (to me at least) by making charging cables and batteries can successfully get into sound devices.
First, my ears are very picky. Many earbuds can't stay put no matter what "technology" they use for eartips. So far, the standard white earbuds that came with my phone were the only ones that could hold, but their sound wasn't that great.
Well, these ones fit great! Even without the "wings" they still hold well and with the small tips they hold just perfect! But what surprised me the most was the sound quality. Not as good as the very popular option from a company that rhymes with 'abra-kadabra' but very close! And remember this is for 1/3 of the price of those other ones give or take.
You do give up some features for the price:
No volume control on the headphones
the headphones "communicate" with you via bips and light , not voice
when taken out of your ears, they keep playing. Other earbuds stop playing when you take them out
so far, no connectivity issues. Pairing took a few tries but it's all good now.
The charging case is small but doesn't look great. It does have an indication on its charge level which is great and it's magnetic so the earbuds snap right into it. Nice feature.
Overall - comparing to the other ones (rhyme with 'Abrakadabra') it's a tough call:
these ones: very good sound, excellent fit, mix of features, no volume control on the earbuds, low price
other ones: excellent sound, so so fit, lots of features including volume control, 3x the cost
Hope this helps!!
