I have Bose soundsport. They are waterproof. Run in the rain with them. Not sure if you should swim with them mind but have passed the shower test. Yes I was curious.Laughing out loud

The 75ts are not swimming waterproof but fine out in the rain and are good with running. The bass on these is on another level. Great tech too including location.

This. And I REALLY like listening to music all the time.

Isn't the reason they have the inbuilt storage because bluetooth is crap underwater?

I use these, get a bit bored swimming. They are pretty good I’ve found.

Used these in the shower. Right ear dropped and got pretty wet and since then they volume and bass have gotten so low that I can only hear out of the left ear.

Don't end up like me who now has to get a replacment pair but other than that these are amazing and the bass is crazy.

Have you got the active's? I think they have a better ip rating than the standard elites.


An IP57-rating makes them fully waterproof and sweatproof, so there’s nothing holding you back from running through the storm or sweating out your new personal best in the gym.

Considering Lypertek Tevi buds for commute, not sure on the call side but they're getting good reviews and budget.

Bluetooth is a luxury. Just my opinion. Eliminated dropout issues around the house with WiFi extenders. Never experienced dropout on a run with my Bose wireless earphones and I stream online radio on my phone over 4G most days which I thought might interfere with the Bluetooth connection. But never an issue.

Anyone upgraded from AirPod to AirPod pro, and is it worth it?

Got mine after Christmas and use them everyday.
Great noise cancelling, now use them rather than over ear beats. No problem with fit - although preferred the ease of the originals as you have to find the sweet spot with the pro’s rubber “seals”.
Wireless charging a plus.

Was there a user on here who had the Samsung Buds? Can anyone confirm whether the signal cuts out when walking around outside (busy street for example, not just the back garden). Given up on my airpods because of dropout Evil
