I want to switch to Bluetooth earphones for many reasons, but even after reading your reviews I'm still puzzled, could you help me out in my pick?
I use headphones mostly on my daily commute in public transportation (about 4 hours) which can get quite loud, so isolation is my priority. I listen mostly to podcasts and watch TV shows, though I do value a good sound quality for when I listen to music, preferably balanced with a preference for crisp trebles over good basses. I will probably not do much sport with them, but I do run after the bus/train sometimes so I need them to hold well
I read your reviews on the three current contenders BBX, BBG2 and Rox, and even if your conclusions are that Rox is the best choice for you I'm still not sold. Since I started listening to music on relatively IEMs (Shure E3c then E4g, d-JAYS, and lastly UE 400vi) I got used to the sound quality and the isolation, usually with the help of Comply foam tips and wearing them over-the-ear so I don't hear the cable tangling and I have a secure fit.
Problem is, the BBG2 can't be worn over-the-ear and the Rox apparently has an issue of missing the first second of a track you just navigated to
, which for me would be an issue. Have you noticed that issue? The auto-association/turning on issue when the earpieces are not stuck together could be problematic too.
In regard of those elements, BBX+Comply sounds like the best solution for me, but I'm still undecided, the remaining key element for me being durability. I burnt through 4 pairs of UE 400vi for instance. It was because the jack connector was faulty, but I can be a bit harsh with them and they need to hold well.
What do you think, should I reconsider taking the BBX?
Thanks for your help and for those reviews, they're awesome!
