  • Q: Does it stay put in your ears?  (11 Answers)

    By Jon 

    • Best answerIf you're not super active, like running on a treadmill or doing heavy cardio, then yes, they're great in the ears once you find your right sized tip. They come with 4 different sizes, so that's no problem. However, I have found that when I'm running on the treadmill they slip a little, but they have never come out of my ear entirely.

  • Q: Can I shower while using these?  (5 Answers)

    By Anonymous 

    • Best answerHonestly, I wouldn't risk it. These are IPX4 rated, meaning they are "splash resistant" but not "waterproof". You shouldn't have issues in a light rain but showers have increased heat and pressure, making water damage far more likely. I wouldn't want anything less than an IPX6 rating for use in a shower but 7+ would be preferable, as those ratings are for continued submersion in water.

    • Best answerWith a tight fit they sound close to the Jaybird freedoms. Once you customize the eq in the app they sound excellent for their size. No issues with holding a charge with daily use. So far as advertised

  • Q: Can I activate iPhone Siri from the headphones?  (5 Answers)

    By WifesBirthday 

    • Best answerYep! Just be sure to purchase the item compatible with Apple products. I use a iPhone 4c for work and use the inline controls without issue. You can use Siri by holding the middle button down. Just like holding the home button on your phone.
