    Purchased today through amazon one day shipping... and I'm honestly blown away. I thought Floss Carter was being too generous at these but this is absolutely mind blowingly good.

    Damn you don't make me buy this... Was going to pull the trigger when Flossy reviewed it but it wasn't available then. But now tempting.

    I saw another review where they were getting like 45 minutes in one ear and an hour in another when streaming. Do you have to have the gear app installed or can you pair like regular earbuds?

    I'd be all over these if the battery was a little better. Think I'll wait for the next version so they can up the battery. They look pretty slick though.

    The Samsung guy at best buy said the battery life is 4 hours continuous music. I guess he was mistaken.

    Well I'm gonna use this for workout mostly and I don't work out more thab 1.5hours anyway..

    Also if I just play the music directly from the ear piece i get much better battery life.

    I think gear app is required... I also noted that the main ear piece (left one for me) had worse battery life than the right one.

    Having tried the dash first, the gear iconx are superior in fit connectivity and sound. These things don't move while running, sound decent enough and hold a connection for 20ft. Well worth 200 when everyone else charges 300.

    See, I have the dash and I haven't been too impressed with them. My first pair crapped out, and this second pair is OK but sometimes it's like they can't tell that they're in my ear. So these are much better except for the battery life?

    Gear app is required to sync via Bluetooth to setup and receive calls or notifications. But when you set up music from the gear which I do it works pretty well. And the battery life does even out a bit. I think it just makes me amp up the workout if I know I only have a few hrs of juice.

    So I have a pair of these and I really like them alot. Went through the Setup>Sounds>Sound Quality and Effects and now they sound great.

    I am still looking for the Gear Icon X PC Manager program, found the one for mac but no X86/64. Anyone know where to get it?

    Oops, read electronic manual and found the install file in the Tools directory of the earbuds.

    The dash never fit me. The BT range was horrible and they were fussy to charge. They always drained while in the case. The Gear fit PERFECTLY at least in MY ear. I have a horrible time getting a good fit with earbuds for running but these babies work great. Battery is what it is. I usually run for an hour. Yesterday, I streamed and the battery drained about 50% . More than enough for my workout purposes which is all I will be using these for. I have noticed some battery drain while in the case after a few days. So you have to keep them charged. I wanted to like the Dash. They are sweet but they are still a work in progress.

    Question about ITE buds.

    I have some LG TruTones that are in-the-ear. When I perspire (even a walk on a warm day), I can feel the moisture in my ear canal. Its bothersome to say the least.

    Am I correct that the X's will do the same thing?

    I don't think you can stop that from happening with any bud but some buds are better at keeping sweat from your head from running into your ear. For me, that's usually when the buds slip out. The IconX seal out the sweat nicely which is probably why they stay in my ears. Samsung really nailed the fit on these.

    Green light turns off on mine after a while.

    Yeah, using the Dash outside is a terrible experience. I really want to like them too, especially since I spent 300 bucks on them.

    I picked up a pair a couple days ago. They constantly disconnect. The left one (non-phone) more than the right.

    Even when connected, my Audible app pauses often... to the point of uselessness. Listening to audio books is one of my main reasons for using these.

    I have tried different hoops and ear gels. Nada.

    I am probably going to have to return them. Its a shame... I really liked them when they worked.
