    Anyone tried them?

    I was thinking about getting the Buds plus and then saw these.

    If you have the Buds Plus, how sensitive are the controls on them. Wish they came in a beige. :-)
    What do you like and not like about Buds plus.
    I listen to audio book, wondering about battery life.

    I had the Buds+ and regret selling them enough that I'll probably get another pair.
    Only downside for me was that I would have liked them a bit louder but they do get better with both volume and bass if you put on proper size/fitting eartips for your year, personally I invested in Comply Foam ones.
    Look up GAMESKY on YouTube for a very good and honest review.

    My brother has a set of the Live buds and when i watched as he answered a call with them I was sold. I'd been using two now-ancient Jawbone ICON HDs with failing batteries. I'd still be a Jawbone aficionado if they hadn't lost their way.

    Yeah, I have a couple of older buds, that are not holding a charge long.
    So many ear buds to choose from. Decisions, decisions. 🤔

    I want some that don't stick way out of my ear and can hold charge while I listen to audiobooks. And easy controls on them.

    Thanks.

    Initially, the way those Jawbone devices looked were the selling point; that, plus it stayed in my ear where the Jabra Bluetooth earpieces I had fought to get out of my ear. Seeing my brother's Buds Live in action woke me up. He said that ambient sound pass through is excellent. I didn't want to try his because I didn't want to sully them. The in-the-ear fit appeals to me also.

    Jabra 75t are excellent, there's a wireless charging case out for them now so keep an eye out for that and also there's a waterproof/sport version of them as well.

    I found them pretty much bang on the 7.5 hours claimed by Jabra, then another about 3 charges from the case

    Doesn't the Samsung Buds +, claim 11 hrs? Did you get that on the pair you had?

    I never used them for that long before putting them back in the case but I would say it's genuine enoght, give or take a little depending on volume etc..

    Early reviews seem to point towards them fitting well on the ear.

    How do you guys find this ?

    After watching lots of reviews on the Bud Live, don't think I want them.
    First the fit, most reviews said there a one size fits all. And are nor comfortable after few hours.

    Was thinking maybe Jabra t75, but battery life not as good as buds +. Can only use right ear one by its self.
    Case is not wireless charging.

    So unless I can find one I like better, it maybe the buds +, for me.
    Any bud + owners out there want to jump in with pro's and cons on them.
    Anyone know what the warranty is?

    On amazon there are some mixed reviews.

    You can get wireless charging case for the 75t, Jabra announced it a month or two ago.

    Thats one of the things, making me think they are ones I may get.

    I've been thinking about getting new buds for awhile now. But with virus been staying close to home, dealing wuth 2 old pair. 😉
    It takes charging both at least once, to get me thru the day. 😁
    But as I said I listen to audiobooks alot during the day. So I want a pair to get me thru the day.
    If your wearing just one, is the other one charging in the case?

    If you were only using one at a time you would effectively have 44 hours of listening

    The Buds+ have more battery life than the Buds Live. Buds+ are also the in ear canal style (like what you're used to). Buds Live are open style, so they rest in the open part of your outer ear structure (think wired Gooe ear buds or Apple buds). If your main use is working out, the Buds+ will probably be a better option for you.

    They have different size wing tips so it can't be one size fits all
