RHA Trueconnect Carbon Black: True Wireless Earbuds with Bluetooth 5 & Sweatproof for Sport Activity
  • This amazing drivers low frequency,amazing, crystal clear and deep punchi bass that give you all the vibe of the song!
  • A great balanced, clear sound without any heavy emphasis on certain frequencies and they have handled a wide range of music and audio well.
  • The battery life is great and the rubberised case has a premium feel.
  • The high frequencies and detail are lacking and this makes the sound quality rather muddy.
  • The frequency response curve is definitely not neutral and I still prefer my wired RHA MA750i.
Sony WF-1000X Truly Wireless In-Ear Noise Cancelling Headphones - Black
  • Great pair of earbuds; they sound amazing and fit securely, noise cancellation is impressive, comparable to the qc35's
  • The sound is amazing, and clearly these are the best in ear headphones I have ever owned (I have owned a lot).
  • Sound seems to getting better as burn in takes place. I am lost in a beautiful textured musical landscape.
  • I was sceptical of buying these given the many reviews around poor connection, dropouts and other sound issues.
  • Sound quality is good compared to all other types of headphone, but excellent for truly wireless (better than Apple and Bose)

What customers say about "Size & Weight"
RHA Trueconnect Carbon Black: True Wireless Earbuds with Bluetooth 5 & Sweatproof for Sport Activity
  • Sound quality is excellent, especially for the size of the buds. Materials used and build quality is exceptional.
  • As with all RHA products there's lots of options for the ear-buds, the metal charging/storage case is a very nice, compact design, and the sound quality is very good for in-ear.
  • Also like low weight of the earbuds, very comfy on the gym.
  • It's light and comfortable, but you do need to experiment with different ear tips to ensure you get a good seal to achieve the sound quality.
  • They feel light but very secure in my ears. I like that to you press on them to stop etc.
Sony WF-1000X Truly Wireless In-Ear Noise Cancelling Headphones - Black
  • This combined with the fact that they are super comfortable, as soon as you find the right ear-tip size, and that they look awesome, make me want to wear them all day.
  • They cancel most (if not all) external noise and the quality is surprisingly really good for their size and what they do.
  • Hmm...i love the size and way they generally stay in your ears.
  • Huge charging case. Come on Sony, people complaint about apple’s airpod size and you managed to triple it.
  • Felt fragile. It's a matter time before the overly sized charging case will break

What customers say about "Features"
RHA Trueconnect Carbon Black: True Wireless Earbuds with Bluetooth 5 & Sweatproof for Sport Activity
  • Great product, once you get the right size ear bud the fit is excellent. They supply a load so it’s easy to do.
  • Great noise isolation and for exercising and last long. Apple's ear pods sound and look inferior compared to these beauties.
  • I've had no connectivity issues at all - once these hook up to the phone first time, they auto-connect in about 5 seconds. And I've had no cutouts to music.
  • Perfect fit, superb sound quality and rock solid Bluetooth connection to my phone.
  • No mobile app or something similar. No high quality codecs.
Sony WF-1000X Truly Wireless In-Ear Noise Cancelling Headphones - Black
  • If you have a good phone, the connection is rock solid. That is when I connect to my girlfriends iPhone 7, the connection is rock solid.
  • No drop outs or loss of connection with the earbuds on sound priority on using the app and noise cancelling switched off.
  • The noise cancellation is also fantastic (not as good as their over-ears so don't expect the same level)
  • The connection between the buds is appalling. It was reasonably stable when stationary, but any movement (walking, bus, train) and the right (slave) bud repeatedly cuts out.
  • Right ear piece constantly loses connection to the left.

What customers say about "Power"
RHA Trueconnect Carbon Black: True Wireless Earbuds with Bluetooth 5 & Sweatproof for Sport Activity
  • USB C enabling quick charging and Bluetooth 5 to ensure a good connection between the earpieces.
  • Battery is good, I needed the best battery possible as I listen throughout the working day - they give about 5 hrs per charge and take about 20 mins to recharge in the box.
  • Good battery life, good audio considering the size of the units, and a good range of tips so you have a good chance of a comfortable fit.
  • Battery life seems pretty fair and the carry case is really well built/smart looking- one of the best i've seen.
  • Battery life is fine and the charging case is there anyway to top you up if need be.
Sony WF-1000X Truly Wireless In-Ear Noise Cancelling Headphones - Black
  • Battery life while quite short is a non issue as you just pop them in the case and they charge back up When not in use, perfect for commutes to work.
  • Battery life matches the 3 hours stated.
  • Battery Life - is indeed the advertised 3 hours and the case is great.
  • No battery indicator on the battery box. Annoying when you don't know if you should charge it, why should I bother to keep track. 3 hours to charge battery box!
  • The battery life is terrible, really bad. If I put the headphones in and it says 'battery level, medium' I know they aren't going to last my hour workout.
