    I liked everything about these except they would not maintain a charge. I had to return them.

    These were good looking buds wasn't sure how well they would turn out. I was pleasantly surprised they are very good and using them at the gym they stay in place. Absolutely love the charging case.

    good sound, decent battery life, great wireless charging feature. However, is not great on calls as is muffled. That being said, good price.

    These have great features such as long battery life and charging the case via Qi but the units themselves are just to big. They stick out the ears. They were light. In the end, I returned this and purchased a different brand that is much smaller and more inconspicuous.

    Great sound, though I do miss a volume control

    I'd really like to have a volume control, especially if I'm at the gym, but it's not a deal-breaker. Other than that, there are things I dig about these earbuds: - The sound quality is great. Nice and clear, with great bass response. Some internet reviews have said they're bass-heavy, but I didn't find them that way at all. - Calls also work great. I used them in conference calls and didn't have an issue with them at all. - I love that there are LOTS of different earbud pad sizes and shapes, but truth be told, the only useful ones for me are the memory foam pads. They keep in place much better than the silicon. Plus, my ear canals are - While battery life is a factor with all truly wireless earbuds, the fact that you can get an extra 16 hours of charge from the case is great. And speaking of charging, I LOVE that this comes standard with a Qi wireless charging base. I just keep the base plugged into my wall socket and place the case on the base at night. All in all, for the money, these are great earbuds!

    These true wireless earbuds are my second set of earphones that I have. Compared to my Jabra Elite, I count these a runner up! The sound is amazing as well as the bass! The fact that it comes with a wireless charging station that not only charges the case for the earbuds but as well as any other device that is wireless compatible! An extra bonus right?! Highly recommend if your looking for something on the more affordable end until otherwise!

    Everything about these earbuds is great. They are much louder than my Bose soundsport earbuds. The different ear tip sizes assured me a great fit. The music sound is deep and rich. Siri or hey Google. Easy pairing and charging. Etc etc etc

    Good but not great.

    Pros: Great Bass, Connectivity not an issue for my phone, (iPhone Xs), Qi charging is a plus, Waterproof, and great for running or working out. Cons: No Volume button, and no track button. Could use a little more colour options. Bottomline: No Volume or track button is not a deal breaker for some if you can access your phone right away. Voice command can be used as a substitute for changing songs. Good product, would buy if you if you don't mind changing volume on your phone and sometimes tracks but you do that anyway while scrolling through 20 skipped songs. I'm probably going to trade these in for a different kind but I wont name the competitor in respect.

    Poor Connection

    I'm a Best Buy employee, so I got these for even cheaper than the listed price. That being said, I still returned them. I never had a problem with the sound quality or battery life, I felt that both were great for the price. My biggest complaint about this item is the bluetooth connectivity. I run often, and I'm able to pair my headphones to my Vivoactive Smartwatch. While I'd be running, my watch would maintain a great connection, but when I dropped my arms while I'd be resting, the connection would become choppy and cut in and out. The same thing would happen with my phone. If I put my phone in my back pocket, the headphones would start to lose the connection. Great headphones, but maybe hold off on getting this pair unless you're going to have your phone strapped to your bicep everytime you use them.

    Good Sound, user friendly with easy connectivity. Was not an issue for my phone, (iPhone). Earbuds are waterproof and have a convenient charging case. These earbuds do not have a volume or track button. I purchased this item as a gift and exchanged them for a higher quality earbud that was on sale at the time of the return. The volume and track button is not a deal breaker, and the sound on these earbuds is good. The earbuds do work with voice command and can be used as a substitute for changing songs. Overall good product, just decided to upgrade due to sale and competitor quality. Hope this helps.

    Great sound vs price point but not perfect

    Let me start this by saying that I have purchased and used a lot of different wireless earbuds. A lot! The AL True EVO are in the top 10. Really great sound; full spectrum of highs, mids and low end. Battery life is decent, 3 solid hours so I'd keep the case for long days. The fit is great when you get the correct ear tip. The downside; the BT connection. I literally have to keep my phone in a coat pocket vs my pants pocket due to the lack of range. On the train, no issue. When I come out from underground, breaks in the connection that lead to holes in whatever I'm listening to. The saving grace is the price point. Until I find the perfect wireless earbuds, and so know they're out there, these'll do.

    I purchased the Altec Lansing True Evos after my dog ate my Samsung IconXs (2018). I wanted to get a replacement but I also wanted to try something else to, hopefully, avoid some of the connection issues I was having. I once owned a pair of Jaybird Runs and the Altecs seemed very similar so I decided to give them a try. They were louder than the Jaybirds but not as high of a sound quality. I did like that the case was capable of wireless charging but I thought the case was a tad large. The headphones seemed to fit well and were only mildly uncomfortable over longer listening sessions. The deal breaker was the connection issues. Every time you take the buds out of the case you must manually turn them on and manually connect them to the phone. Not to compare them to the the Runs again but when they were removed from the case they powered on and connected automatically. My purpose for getting "True Wireless" earbuds was for quickly being able to put them on and take them off throughout the day. The act of having to reconnect them every time is a deal breaker. They are going back tomorrow.
