These are the ones I bought for $300:

Are bluetooth headphones supposed to sound so flat like this?

These are my old headphones:

And I'm comparing the two and it's like night and day. The Bose with wires has that thump and bass. The music just surrounds you.

Anyone have these headphones and experienced this?

I’m glad you made this thread..

I’m actually looking at getting some earphone for running..

From my research the PowerBeats Pro looking like the winner.. So I’ll likely grab them for 170.. but will definitely pay extra the 30 dollar extra to get the 2 year protection plan









Cheaper online than in store..

Also best not to buy off the street.. the quality won’t be the same.

I bought these bose ones too, total trash if you lose the box. if it unsyncs, you need the box to sync it to your phone.

Best sounding Bluetooth headphones I've ever owned were soundpeats q30 and I copped them for less than $30 on Amazon.

Best headset I've owned was soundcore life q30.


Then again I'm not the type to drop over 100 on some headphones. Just need something to workout with, cut the grass, and have conference calls for work. You begin to realize the difference in quality is not really worth it in most cases. When you look at the YouTube reviews you start to see your paying for a brand name more than anything else

That's why people call Bose, 'Blose'. Bose purposely goes for flatter sound.

Man, give me some wired IEMs over wireless earbuds any day. My pair of BLON BL03s blow a lot of these big name brands out of the water.

I've never tried the bose, but the rubber tips usually make a difference in sound quality. I have powerbeats pros and going from one size to another the bass changes dramatically

Ear fatigue on those are awful. Usually couldnít last a full workout without taking them off at least once.

Thank you for making this thread!
I’ve been looking since last fall.
In the summer of 2020 I knew I needed to upgrade my phone and I was just going to jump on the 12 maxPro. I was coming from a 6S+ and just needed a new phone. I figured since getting a new iPhone, I would have to upgrade from the 3.5 mm earphone, why not start looking at some wireless earbuds.
Last year there were so many articles on Sony - WF-1000XM3 and how they performed as well as the high end ear buds. They also were discounted because they had been out for a while. That was the reason I didn’t jump on them, that and the fact that they weren’t water resistant. So I said fu*k it, let me wait and see if they drop anything in February 2021, during CES.
In the mean time, I kept looking and looking, and came across
The Sennheiser MOMENTUM True Wireless 2.
I always loved the design of the the 1’s but the 2’s were the upgrade. After reading up on em, I felt like I would be comfortable getting these and not to worried about what the 3’s will have. To me these seem to be the best value for quality.
What I don’t know is... will the new Sony - WF-1000XM3(4’s?) that are said to come out in the fall, be better than the Sennheiser? Or should I wait until the
Sennheiser MOMENTUM True Wireless 3’s drop???
My question to y’all is:
What wireless earbud sounds best with Apple Music?
I was just reading on BX that Apple is coming out with HD streaming for Applemusic, so I want to make the best choice in earbuds that lets me listen in true HD streaming.

Jabra Elite 65t are great for the price point and don't slip out if you're running with them in

Soundcore Liberty 2 Pro are the best Bluetooth headphones that I have ever used. Like them a lot more than the Powerbeats

Are you serious?!? even with the ear hook, I figured that would make it more secure/comfortable

This is very true.
Once I make a choice, Iíll probably upgrade to the right tips for me.

After buying those beats by dre I'm not spending that much money on ear buds and I'm training in them. Copped some JBL joints from Walmart for $25. They do just fine.

Word, itís just like how folks will go out and buy the new iPhone instantly even if they just got the previous last year in perfect condition
