I just got the elite active 65ts and they're really good. Good sound, no connection drop outs so far and haven't fell out during multiple gym workouts.

If you could keep it after "paying it off" I would be tempted.

Yeah they do, intersting concept takes about 5 mins to get used to but sound is really really good quality. I know what you mean about owning them after paying it off … seems to be more of a rental than a contract purchase

Cheers chaps. Next model up and apparently improvements are worth the extra bump in price. Bass heavy, the tech and long wear comfort is what sold it for me.

Yeah fine, I previously bought these at a higher price-point and I tend to use these only when in the gym as the noise cancellation is fantastic; so I've probably had a handful of calls and facetimes - but there have been no issues from what I recall.

I’ve bought a pair. Will report back on my thoughts after a few weeks although I can’t offer the comparison, just a general opinion. First pair of cans for me (no Snaye)

Cheers copped. Exactly what I need them for, some of the Bluetooth earphones have been choppy on calls

Can't compare as didn't have the XM2 but the 3's are very good IMO.

Looking for some recommendations for in ear headphones for swimming? All the ones I have seen look shit and are glorified MP3 players attached to them rather than something you can connect to your phone. Sound quality doesn’t need to be amazing as it’s mostly for podcasts.

surely the splashing and movement would ruin anything you were trying to listen to? or is this something that is done now

The phone would be kept in my bag next to the pool. I used my airpods while on holiday (obviously keeping my head above the water and just doing breaststroke) and they were fine, but would rather not risk them and just buy something that has some kind of official waterproof rating. Anyone used/tried the Tozo T10?

Lol. Can you not go 30 mins without listening to music? I get that it's nice to zone out to some tunes but waterproof earphones is next level.

What about the new Jabra 75t active that ust came out, I'm not sure if they are swimming waterproof, but they are supposed to be waterproof. I'm getting a pair for the gym and running.
