    Great, affordable wireless earbuds

    Before diving into the actual review, I feel it'd be beneficial to describe my intended use for these earbuds; thus, if your purposes resemble my own, then this review should prove useful. I bought these earbuds with the intention of using them for my workouts (mostly calisthenics and weight lifting) and at work during closing hours when we clean the store (I work at a bakery/cafe). I have separate earphones for gaming as well as separate earphones I use mainly for long distance travel and highly focused work on my laptop; which means I ultimately bought these earbuds for activities where wired earbuds (even the ones that connect wirelessly but have a wire attaching the two earbuds) would prove impractical. If your situation and intentions sounds pretty close to my own, then keep reading. I'll go in order of the features most important to me. PRICE: I didn't want to spend more than $100 for something I planned to use mainly for working out and at work. My workouts last about 30 to 40 minutes and closing at work takes only about an hour, which meant I didn't need extravagantly priced earbuds for frequent but short use. I bought these on sale for $70, which fit my budget perfectly. WIRELESS CONNECTIVITY: As I mentioned before, I wanted earbuds that are completely wireless; meaning, no wires whatsoever. These fit the bill perfectly because they have no wires and they connect via bluetooth, and they have maintained a stable connection to my phone since I've used them. PORTABILITY: These earbuds are small and compact, but do look bulky when you're looking at yourself directly in a mirror; however, this doesn’t bother me because (1) I don’t really care too much how they look on me, nor do I spend my time staring at myself in the mirror while using them, and (2) they still fulfill my needs of having earbuds that are small and easily transportable. SOUND: For earbuds that normally retail at $100 and I purchased on sale for $70, these provide surprisingly excellent sound quality. In my humble, non-musical-expert opinion, these produce loud, rich mid- and high-tones and deep, reverberating bass. I wasn’t expecting too much in terms of sound, and I’m by no means an audiophile, but these definitely exceeded my expectations and I appreciate very much the sound quality AL has built into these earbuds. BATTERY LIFE: The company claims these offer four hours of battery life and the case can charge them up to four additional times assuming the earbuds and case are fully charged in the beginning, which means they offer up to 20 hours of battery life. As mentioned previously I planned to use them for roughly an hour at a time, and I’m diligent when it comes to charging my electronic devices, so this wasn’t a deal breaker for me. DESIGN: I wanted something simple and classy. These are black, compact, and minimally designed; enough said. PERIPHERALS: These come with (1) a wireless charging base/pad that you can use for other devices that support wireless charging, (2) a USB cable, (3) a case that can be charged and charges, (4) four sets of different sized earbud attachments to accommodate differently sized ears, and (5) stickers (a personal favorite of mine that might not matter to others). IN A NUTSHELL: These are affordable, practical earbuds that offer great value for their cost and their price range. I would recommend them to people who want something affordable ($100 or less), practical (compact, wireless connectivity), sound great for the price, and who will use them for frequent but short activities (e.g. workouts, work, etc). I wouldn’t recommend them to audiophiles who probably have extremely high standards for sound quality or for people who regularly engage in high-intensity activities (e.g. runners, etc).

    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!

    I tried the jarba elite active did not like the fit these wireless earbuds sound great the fit is good too.. If you get them on sale they are a lot cheaper than the others on the market I have a few other altex products also and love them. U cannot go wrong with these if you like your music loud and clear . I have no complaints at all...

    I purchased these in-ear headphones after purchasing three other sets from other brands of which I returned 2 because of the low quality. The Altec earbuds are by far the best choice, even though I paid less than the other one I kept. The sound quality is superior and fits comfortably in my ears. Will definably look at purchasing an extra set as a spare.

    I recently bought a $50 JLabs pair and thought compared to price was a solid 7/10 but i bought these altec lansing tru evo plus and for $100 its a total steal. Id say w price comparison 9/10. Great sound, solid bass, ive used the ear buds for about 4 hrs without discomfort and battery has lasted.

    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

    Normally when I try to use blue tooth ear bud's they either fall out while I run or hurt my ears since I'd have to jam them in so they stay. These however are very comfortable and secure.

    I tried a couple other wireless earbuds in this price range and there was always some kind of flaw. Not with these, I've been thoroughly satisfied with them. Well worth their price.

    Fit is great! Sound quality is excellent! Bass response is great! Very happy with them. Only 1 drawback is they can't be used independently of each other.

    I got these because of the name and I don't regret it. They are hard to get in the ear sometimes but once there they sound awsome. I recommend these highly.
