    Your point around the 4:11 mark is the absolute best point that soooooo many people miss about these buds. Sound quality has EVERYTHING to do with how well they seal to your ears. So if you are using the wrong size tips, you will never hear their best sounds. So it is definitely worth a little trial and error to find out which set fits the best and makes the best seal. I use mine every single morning in the gym, where I am sweating my ass off, and they still stay in my ears, and sound excellent the entire time. Also of note is they are louder than any other buds I've ever used. PRO TIP: Go to the Play Store and get POWERAMP PRO!!! It's worth every penny, and you can make these sound any way you want!
    BTW, not being available for ios is NOT a problem, it's a feature. You have to be a f%#*!@g moron to use ios, so they don't deserve the app. I could write a dissertation on what isn't available on ios, or CRapple devices...

      I've NEVER lost one, or even misplaced one of them. So I have no idea how you lose an earbud. You must be extremely careless with them.

    I'm using iPhone XR. I find that Samsung earbuds to be very nice, and I dig that ambient control feature. I'm not a fan of bass or things like that but don't really mind. I do prefer the sound the apple earpod has, and I think they sound similar to Airpod? and it is comfortable on your ears. Too bad Samsung doesn't have that app on AppStore. I would totally buy them.

    Has anyone used these while wearing a hood? I had a problem with an old pair of earbuds that my hood would pause the music if it just taps the earbud, how sensitive are the touch buttons?
