      Anker Zolo Liberty + but you still have not answered my question concerning latency! Come on it’s not that hard.

    Sony, why so expensive??? Make it 150 usd and sell millions. I can afford to buy it, but I have Huawei Freebuds which cost 100 usd and sound pretty good. So why pay so much? For noise cancelling? No, thanks!

      Great one. I’ll wait for next gen to at least match Airpods’ battery life. *hopefully*

        Um, no. My Galaxy buds are comfortable, sound great, and are cheap.

                I really don't know how you can compair these with the Jabra elite active because they are awesome and cheaper by alot as far as poor people are conserned.

                $250 in Europe, not worth it. Creative Outlier Air for $60 has IPX rating and 10h of battery life from a single charge.

                    Had the jabra elite then bought the airpods, dont understand the hype jabra made a much better product in my opinion.

                          The thing with Airpods is -

                          One can easily steal them in public and get away unnoticed. All my friends who have Airpods never use them when we're out. Defeats the purpose of an earphone honestly. I'd rather wear cheap or moderate priced wired earphones and not worry about it getting snatched.

                            I would go with the new Libratone Track Air+, smaller footprint, splash resistant, wireless charging and they look much better than the Sony...

                              I really hate how every review of bluetooth earbuds tests the latency from the Youtube app on their phone. NEWSFLASH: Apps like Youtube have bluetooth compensation which delays the video to be in sync with the audio. The reason this is an issue is because what if the streaming service you use doesn't have that compensation? Or the app does but not the website version on your laptop? Or you want to play a game on your laptop or phone? YOU WILL NOTICE A DELAY in those circumstances.

                                No sweat/water resistance and only connecting to one device are a real downer.

                                  Do they flash when in use? Really annoys me lying in bed using headphones and they flash a bright light in the corner of my eye

                                    Tried multiple earbuds over the years. I prefer Bose Soundsport for gym and active life; AirPods for travel & day to day living

                                          Well. They do make some good and great product. It just never caught your attention because it is not made in the USA as most of you prefer, and it's not Apple. Because it's made by Asia company.

                                            Does the noise cancellation WORK WITHOUT music ? Or you have to have the Music ON ??

The 54 and 56 (as opposed to the earlier MRW600) have a mic and speaker so you can actually use it (like a tiny Zoolander phone) to take a call when headphones aren't plugged in (can initiate calls, too, if using the Sony app). Call quality is excellent, btw. FM radio with 9 presets. Can use with 2 devices simultaneously!

This is true of anything that you can buy that goes into your ears. I will stick with my favorite wired ear phones that have triple flanges so they stay in your ears. I spend $60 every three years to have high quality sound in my ears.
