I did order some Comply foam tips made for the pair; so they ended up costing a bit more for the complete seal and fitment I am looking for.

      Also I am incredibly disappointed at myself. Dropped my phone yesterday. Twice. The flimsy 2mm thick clear case came right off during the first fall. Then I dropped it again while picking it up and nicked it all around the body.. facking derp
      Right now I'm using Bose SoundSport earbuds and occasionally borrow the wife's QC35s. I know it's sacrilegious to bring up Bose to Audiophiles but I'm happy with them and any sort of audio playback on my phone is compressed files anyways. The BT range is good, not great. I don't have range issues when on the same floor but being on separate floors pushes the range limit. I was thinking of getting the Jaybirds but their price was close to the Bose pair so I went with them since they've been established longer, should i need warranty support etc.

      I had purchased a few other cheaper model earbuds but most of them had horrible range. You needed to have the phone in your pocket to stay within range.

      Couldn't go wrong with the Bose or Jay's. The latter caught my eye and I am in trial mode to try out a few more. Bluetooth 5.0 is out so I'm watching for how headphone manufacturers are shifting their products towards a better connectivity. Mine are just Ok in those regards.
      Something about a fresh start: I have mine everyday.

      I use a pair of non soundsport buds, the normal ones. I will say that they are the ONLY earbuds I've ever worn that don't hurt my ears after prolonged use. They are super comfortable. Sound wise I've used better but if earbuds start to hurt after a while your probably not going to be wearing them very long.

      Bose earbuds 10/10 comfort and ergonomics. I'll give them that.
      Like I told my last wife, I says, Honey, I never drive faster than I can see. Besides that, it's all in the reflexes.

      Haven't tried them out yet.


      In other news-- I was looking for info on who will manufacture Apple's new touch screen home button: come to find out they will be moving it to the back like all other android big guns. Lol.. Apple's innovating days are done!

      I'm a total Apple fanboy, and will probably always have their products, but it's a fact that the current crew running the show are not innovators. They are focused only on sales and finances. True Apple innovation died with Steve Jobs.

      I still prefer the 5SE over many new smartphones today. It does what many smartphones cannot provide in real world usage. Take your smartphone out for a day in the city. No external chargers, batts, or wallet and bulky cases. Run about and use the MTA and sight see. Take calls, switch over to the camera, then go back to texting-- all within the palm of your hand navigating through GPS. It is damn near impossible with the new stuff. Mobility in those regards are phenomenal with the 5S/SE.

      I gravitate towards LG and Sony but I don't care about branding or being a fanboy. I really had my hopes up for the 10th anniversary Iphone however Apple simply can no longer compete... and just think of the price tag they'll slap on..
