    I have a few that I use! Skullcandy smoking buds 2, 2 pair that I got off amazon (don't know the brand but they sound good for the price), and a pair of Urbeats!

    Etymotic ER4PT/Expensive; ($300), but if you want great fit, & sound quality, without booming bass, these ROCK!
    Great for Classic Rock!

    I use the Zero Audio Carbo Tenore as per the polarising Verge article - http://www.theverge.com/2016/8/29/12...rphones-review

    I'm not an audiophile so I'm not going to pretend to compare them to high end earbuds but I am very pleased with their sound.

    I've probably posted in here earlier, oh well. If I'm feeling lazy I'll use my EarPods or my Jays A-Jays with my phone, otherwise it's my Shure SE-315's with my Fiio X5.

    You reminded of myself. Lazy days I'll use my 6s Plus with Earin, else will be my main rig which is UM Customs + RSA Predator + newly acquired FiiO X1ii.

    I purchased my Apple AirPods four weeks and one day ago, I'm throughly pleased with their performance. I'm enjoying the voice sound quality, music sound quality, Bluetooth abilities and the overall quality of the AirPods. I use them daily and they have easily become my go to headsets. It is my personal opinion that Apple hit a HOMERUN with the Apple AirPods.
    Do you have any issues with them staying in your ears? I run a lot and workout occasionally, and the standard earpods won't stay in my ears, even if I'm just sitting at my desk. I think the cord weighs them down just enough where they won't stay in. However, when I go to the dentist and I'm in that darn chair, I have no issues with them at all.

    I have no issues with the Apple AirPods staying in my ears at all. Whether I'm walking, running or exercising. However I had to constantly adjust the regular Apple "earbuds" and now I realize that was undoubtedly due to the wire.

    Thanks! How's the sound quality? I'm not an audiophile, just looking for something that sounds good.

    The sound quality is surprisingly good and better than my BOSE Soundsport Pulse earbuds.

    I think I need to order some. Currently a 6-week wait to ship, but Apple seems to get things out sooner than the initial estimate.

    Yes and I've noticed that people are receiving them earlier than the six weeks, more like three to four weeks, but that might also be location based.

    How is the Fiio X1-ii? I'm tempted to buy one purely for the Bluetooth capability. I'm just worried it may not be as good as my gen 1 X5.

    My experience with the AirPods has been good so far. My experience is much like Spenderdl, I've had no problems moving around and having them still stay in my ears, and I also have had issues where I'm constantly pressing on the EarBuds to keep them in my ears (again, likely due to the wires).

    I did a "speaker test" on the AirPods, using tracks that professional reviewers use. I find my Bose Bluetooth headphones sound slightly better but the AirPods are quite good. Additionally, the Bose do a much better job blocking out external noise. Depending on your need/uses, this can be good or bad. I find it good as I can have them in and, while outdoors, can hear louder traffic sounds or in an office I can hear if people need to talk to me. However, others who have tried to use them in loud environments have complained that sound on the AirPods can be drowned out, that they just don't get loud enough.

    One other comparison, in a YouTube review I saw, the reviewer felt the sound quality of the AirPods was about the same as the new Beats X, with the main difference being the boosted bass on the Beats X.

    The Bose aren't earbuds, they are the on-ear Soundlink Bluetooth headphones.

    Oh okay. That's understandable. Same here, my BOSE QC 35's are a different breed of headphones.

    Yes, and that is part of the reason I have both now. The Bose are great for things like airplanes or I just want to be left alone. The AirPods are great for when I want to be aware of what is going on around me but still be able to enjoy my music without it bothering others.

    Thanks for the insight! Just placed my order for the Air Pods. Now the wait... Supposedly 6 weeks, but hopefully sooner

    You are welcome, glad I can help. Hopefully you'll get them soon and can enjoy them. If you live near an Apple store, you might be able to get them sooner (they occasionally get them in stock). I believe the https://airpods.isinstock.com/locations website has been mentioned here, which shows you who has them in stock. If you give them an email, they will email you when your closest Apple store gets them in stock, at which point you can hurry and buy a pair, so they'll hold them for you. This is how I was able to get my AirPods.

    I only use it purely with my amp and comparing it to my 6s Plus used previously, sounds a little deeper and definitely better due to it being a dedicated music player.

    But since it's a second gen of the entry X-series, the display isn't high res, UI is still a little laggy even with the current latest 1.5.6 firmware. Hope future updates will be better.

    I returned Beats X, no bass at all.

    Anyone has experience with these:
