Yes saw that that was the only real complaint about them but not a huge deal. I prefer physical buttons on tws iems but their other features are so good for the price.

The Italian Warehouse is the quickest from them. It's always 1-3 days delivery no matter the time of year.

Order today for example, they should arrive on or before Friday. I think 3pm or 4pm is the dispatch cutoff point for that day.

certainly quicker than other geekbuying warehouses going on this experience in any case. processing time to dispatch has been fairly slow when I ordered from them in the past but I'm fairly sure that it was a different warehouse.

Would this be it?
Ha I didn't know about that and didn't have it on. When turned on the bass is silly loud

volume range is huge - max volume is way louder than you would actually use.

bass is strong - to the detriment of the mids and highs a little (normal tradeoff) but overall good sound quality

touch control when the buds are in place is a little fiddly as they are so small but the basics such as music start/stop, answer reject call, next track, call up voice assistant is fine with a couple of mins practice. also has volume control from the buds and it's also not bad with a bit of practice. strangely next track and volume up go through the left and reverse on the right.

true mono is available as the buds pair individually.

range is good over bluetooth 5 - easily 10m.

stability of connection - v. good.

call quality good

overall recommend based on early impressions.

Quick overview

Impressed, great fit, easy to pair( it did seem to 2nd pair with my iPhone , I disconnected and reconnect and it seemed to appear as new set)

Sound very good. Using touch on side is fine, the touch part is at the back so I use my thumb to do gestures. Used them on a webex call and all good.

For the price, impressed. And I know that the in ear are fine for me. May look at a bigger brand like Sony now.( have vouchers for Curry’s)

Thanks to the poster who recommended them. Great shout

Did these arrive yet Basq? I am selling my Mixcder Hd401 and going to buy a pair of the Anker - Reviews look solid and noise cancellation will be good for flying as i do a good bit of travelling for work.

note that these earphones also have clear voice tech for phonecalls which comes with the qualcomm chip also.

The cheap shipping doesn't seem to be working anymore, says 2 euro on the product page but when you go through to checkout it has changed to 28.05 or 35.29 for the Italian delivery options? Am I doing something wrong?
Edit: that's excluding the item itself, ie- total over 53euro Inc shipping
