    Thanks for this. Ordered. Didn't want to pay $150 for headphones, these might just do the trick.

    Do these have the auto-off feature if you haven't been using them for a while? I don't see it in the product descriptions.

    From the previous Ankers, yes. But an annoying thing is you can't skip backwards on a track. Not sure if they have changed it on this model

    And this isn't Anker's copycats. They've used the same features for a while in £13.99 wireless buds for a year or more

    The magnetic element of the Beats X surprised me as it was these cheaper companies who did it first

    TBH I got these and I'm totally happy with them. The sound quality is just the same as The precious PowerBeats:

    why are companies making these darn wires so long? the Beats X wire is absurdly long and that neck band piece is so big that I rather just get wired headphones at that point..... I thought part of the appeal of wireless headsets, was to minimize the amount of wire hanging from your ear.

    I had a previous version of Anker bluetooth earbuds and they sounded absolutely horrible. Has anyone compared these to the old ones? Are they better? I normally love Anker stuff but I was really disappointed with the earphones.

    Got them in today and I think the sound quality is awful. Gonna send them back to Amazon.

    I received my pair to day as well and will be sending them back. I found the cable too short and even when connected, when my phone rings, i can't use the earbuds to answer the call? It disconnects and I have to take them out. Happened on 2 separate calls.
