    The Jaybird Bluebuds X are technically still "BT Earphones" as described in your earlier post.

    You should have mentioned it in the context of Truly Wireless Earbuds.

    Regardless, all the more reason to not go "truly" wireless if battery longevity is the main concern. At least not yet.

    I agree, those are "BT Earphones"

    My only reason for pointing it out is that we can't compare the battery life/longetivity of those earphones to "Truly Wireless Earphones" as based on everyone's experience, wired ones have a longer lifespan.

    Taking my experience with the nifty wired Sennheiser CX300 II, which was succeeded by CX100, it all boils down to after sales service and warranty coverage. Even wired products have flaws. The best part was when the item breaks, let's say on the 11th month, all I have to do is to visit the service center to get a new replacement (after standard checks, of course). Because the warranty offers that 24-month peace of mind, I could readily anticipate a faulty device again before the warranty expires thereby prolonging the usage instead of a new (unnecessary) purchase. This, i thought, made me realize that I paid a high price not on the product alone but also for the warranty. The only difference with Bose is that the price tag is ridiculously high and you only get a warranty of 12 months with a battery life that becomes unreliable after that.

    I’m thinking about the Flex too. It has something no other earbuds has at that price point. Though at the same time, it’s not totally wireless. It’s just going to be for home use anyway- like watching videos before falling asleep or taking calls.

    Aside from the Flex, what else is good for Php3k out there?

    What's the best neckband earphones for video calls? I'm a lecturer who frequently records lectures and does video calls due to the nature of my work.

    Been playing around with ‘cheap’ Bluetooth wireless earbuds lately.....

    1. FIIL Lite - love the sound, love the fit, it’s just too china-centric probably for mainlanders’ consumption. Doesn’t even have English prompts nor works with their Global app. The sound is so immersive that it’s dangerous- wife might be calling me upstairs and I can’t hear her over YouTube lol

    2. Soundpeats Truecapsule 2 - this one has a stem so I use it for calls. It’s slightly bigger both on the earpiece and case. It’s got English prompts, touch controls for volume, pause/play, siri, in-ear detection. Got it for a good price from a Php1k lazada lucky box in the Soundpeats store.

    Not sure how long these will last but at a cost of Php1.5k at the most, I think I can write them off even after 12mos.
