    Nice to see a company like Samsung working on wireless earbuds...

    However, would love to see one that only for music... No fitness tracking and any other gimmicks.

    I still prefer Bluetooth earbuds with wires (that looks like a lanyard).
    I understand that some users wants to get rid of the wires, but.. It will help to protect your buds not to get lost whenever it fell-out from your ears, especially during night times.

    I bought mine at Datablitz Glorietta a few months ago. Try calling their branches for stock availability.

    I bought the Sudio Vasa Blå just yesterday from Digital Hub. I was initially considering the Jaybird X2 but found this Swedish brand for half the price.

    I have the jaybird bluebuds x2, great sound considering its wireless... Good balance between the bass/mids/treble. The key with these kind of btooth earphones are the seal/fit

    Jaybird BlueBuds X period. Fitted them with Comply T-500's. I don't think I should upgrade to the X2's or the X3's because they basically sound the same. Overall, it's a boss earphones! :)

    My house is located on a main road that makes it a bit noisy during the day. Having your ears fully enclosed by the headset helps a lot in filtering out unwanted noise when watching TV hehehe.

    My friend has the original bluebuds x and compared with the x2, the latter has smoother sound overall, so it really is better... But yes if coming from the x1 i dont think the sonic improvement is worth the higher price. I tried using those comply tips but in my experience while it gave a better fit it also dulled the highs for me

    Motorola's wireless earbuds are better than most, but still not good enough to buy | The Verge

    Bragi's "low cost" The Headphone was announced just in time for the September 7 iPhone event. Available for preorder at USD119 (limited time only). SRP is USD149.

    The Headphone uses Knowles® Balanced Armature Speakers so I'm guessing these should sound good?

    ^Samsung's Gear IconX is very tempting... But I've decided to wait for the next version.

    Mall demo units were promising, but I'm sure there will be issues once you take them outdoors... Plus I really don't need them to have fitness tracking!

    Using both the Bragi Dash and Jabra Elite Sport.

    I'd say both have good sound quality with the Jabras a touch better. I like the Jabras for workouts because the physical buttons are easier to operate vs Dashs optical touch. I do like that I can nod to answer calls for the Dash. It seems like the Dash has better audio pass through than the Jabras.
    I scoured the internet for truly wireless earbuds options and I'm very pleased with both.
