Seems like they've put a lot of work into them. Hope they deliver & force Apple etc. to lift their game.


I think they will. I love my AirPods - they are a great product - but something that focuses on sound quality and also has a solid Bluetooth connection would be great. The battery life is a tad shorter on these, which I'm pretty sure is due to higher power / quality internals, but 3 and half hours is plenty for me, especially with the charging case.

Those look pretty great. The proof will be in the pudding if they actually start shipping in October -- that's almost the same availability window of AirPods!


Usually I would be skeptical, but since these are made by Anker I would expect they have a pretty solid path set towards a successful launch. They know how to build great products and I don't think they would tarnish their name by pushing a timeline they knew was impossible to meet.

Hope you're right! I signed up as a backer, too.

Looks like the campaign didn't go as well as planned.

Got these in the mail today. They have exceeded my expectations. Fit great. Superb audio quality. Solid metal case.

These are going to do very well.
