Anonymous, 18 Jun 2018Elitist trash talk...Well, not really, most professional studio don't use that, also the quality of the smallish bandwidth Bluetooth (800Kbps pffft) connected AV hardware would never reach any high quality wired one.
Anonymous, 18 Jun 2018A guy that likes placebo stuffYou always find people in some groups that are just happy to be part of.
I myself try to use really decent headphones, some of them are wireless (just 3 pairs), I have a SoundBlaster X7 LE + Grace m920 as a desktop DAC ... but am I an audiophile?
Hard to tell IMHO.

Whackcar, 18 Jun 2018Not true. The 32bit audio dac on my LG V30 would beg to differ. Most flagship phones these day... moreThey do not come with a decent DAC mate, don't be delusional.
Most of them use built-in DAC made by Qualcomm.
+ LG V30 does have a 32bit DAC ... so what? It does not help you in any way, shape or form over 24bit or mostly even 16bit DAC.
DAC is not everything ...
BTW: I am LG V30+ owner as well.
Edit: Same goes for AMPs.

I sure can easily tell the difference between a high-end wired headphones & any high-end wireless ones.
Wireless audio experience is decent these days, but wired is on a whole another level.
Jason Melling, 18 Jun 2018True audiophiles would never use a mobile phone to listen to music. Not true. The 32bit audio dac on my LG V30 would beg to differ. Most flagship phones these days come with high-end DACs and AMPs anyway.
Looks interesting enough.
I might pick them for some casual listening in a gym. Now I use (most of the time) QCY QY19, but the signal stability and fit are not that great for me (good but not great).
Sadly Bullets are out of stock everywhere I looked.
BTW that battery life vs. size on Bullets, I am really not a big fan of those huge things dangling on my neck.
I wonder if this means 3.5mm jack is going the dodo way for the next generation of OnePlus phones?
...because there's nothing I need more than one more thing to need to keep charging all the time. Hell no, it's jack or bust.
Anonymous, 18 Jun 2018The only thing that satisfies a true audiophile is live music and singing without any amplific... moreTrue, music is mostly not recorded in binaural fashion and with different distance in space from microphones (as when you stand before stage with every instrument, singer in different place).
Not to mention with bluetooth its cut at 20Hz down, and while it can do 2Mbit, only about 1/5 is used in aptX.
Well, still nothing can replace vibrations felt by body... Maybe just that sony's vibration tech a bit.
Also though everyone seems to care about audio quality at least a bit, just a few know that what they record, like mono audio and not too loud. LG phones are the only ones capable of satisfying audio recording in Any conditions.(not counting lumias even if they are better).
Bob007, 18 Jun 2018Should have gone with Bluetooth earbuds ,they jumped late on these wireless thing which is sti... moreTrue, Jabra Rox is similar(form factor & magnetic shut-off) and I'm sure there are other manufacturers too who have made similar better Bluetooth headsets.
They should have tried the in ear style Bluetooth headsets and then sold them with Bluetooth 5.0 as the new technology.
Instead this is old wine in older bottle. They just made it easier to fill (USB C faster charging) and called it revolutionary. At the best it may be good value for money. And overall decent sound for the money.
Why is the fact that this Bluetooth headset is using older 4.2 Bluetooth technology never mentioned anywhere in the review.
It should be a serious con when all flagships and even mid range smartphones have the newer Bluetooth 5.0, including the OP6
Geric.770, 18 Jun 2018WTH!? LG V30 please?Yes. That’s an exception. In general, any audiophile will stack a DACAMP to a smartphone.
xXENDER FREAKXx, 18 Jun 2018It is a matter of preference u know, some audiophiles will choose BlueTooth headphones over wi... moreThat some audiophiles who prefer wireless over wired are in an extinction. Majority(99pc) will pick wired headphone, anyday anytime. Compare sound quality of this particular wireless earphone with a wired earphone of same cost, in all probabilities, the wired one trumps this wireless. But with majority of smartphones having poor to just decent DACAMPs inside them, one may not observe the actual difference in SQ between a wired and wireless headphones.
Niraz1094, 18 Jun 2018How do these stack up against Anker Soundbuds Slim+ 2017 model?This is a valid question.
Whackcar, 17 Jun 2018Wireless headphones/earphones are for filthy casuals. Audiophiles would never even think about... moreThe only thing that satisfies a true audiophile is live music and singing without any amplification. All audio equipment sounds wanting, compared to live.

Besides, BlueTooth audio have improved over the years and now u can't even tell the difference if compared with the wired one, so why hate on it when u can just appreciate?
