    These earbuds are pretty darn nice! Nicely packaged product. Opened the box and placed the earbuds into the cute little charging case. They only go in one way so that's easy. Plugged it in to charge with the included usb-c cord. They were already partially charged so I let them set a little while. I took them out and put on the smallest ear "tips" - there are 3 sizes... The ones that came on the buds were way too large for my ears. I very easily paired then with my iPhone... And I tried them on. Here's the problem for me... I tried all kinds of ways to make them secure and comfortable in my ears. Nothing I could do made them feel secure enough to trust that they wouldn't fall out. However, the good part, the sound was VERY good. I easily played my playlists. When I pressed them into my ears, they sounded fantastic! Deep bass - fantastic sound. As long as I kept holding them they sounded amazing, but when I removed my fingers the bass disappeared. The controls definitely have a learning curve too. There is one large button on each bud and long or short or multiple presses controls the volume, tracks, power, etc. A very nice thing is when your phone rings you can answer with a single press. I could only hear the call in one ear though. You can also access your phones assistant. In my case Siri. That was very helpful but also only in one ear. These are very nice truly wireless earbuds but they're just not for me. I could never get that fit just right for me.

    I have wanted a pair of truly wireless headphones for a long time now. When I received these, I was pleasantly surprised at the size and form factor. These headphones are a cool color, and they come with a case that not only stores the headphones, but also is used to charge them. The headphone case is charged by a USB-C cable. The headphones advertise 12 hours of battery life. I believe that is due to the headphones possibly holding 6 hours of charge and the case holding an additional 6 hours of charge. I have not tested the complete battery life of the headphones. It is hard to tell because immediately upon placing the headphones back in the case, they automatically start charging again. I almost wish it was possible to turn the charging on when you want them to charge. I wonder if this will affect the battery life in the long run due to the constant charging. Pairing these to my phone was easy. After taking them out of the case the turn on and there are instructions with how to place the headphones in pairing mode. Making and receiving calls is also simple. If you push a button on either headphone, the call will answer. The only thing that has taken some time to get used to is the phone call only coming through the left ear piece. When on the phone, the right ear piece remains silent. Audio quality is actually pretty good. While it does not fully hold up to some other, higher quality brands, it is definitely NOT disappointing. The headphones have good volume and great bass response. Changing tracks and volume on the headphones takes a bit of getting used to. The instructions provided list the amount of button clicks that are needed to change tracks, change volume, and answer the phone. The buttons are relatively large and each headphone has one. The only issue I found was, when I reached up to adjust the headphone, I had many times I would accidentally bump or push the button due to the size and placement. This would pause my music or hang up my phone call. I am sure over time I will get used to the button placement, but it is worth noting. All in all, if you are looking for an above average set of headphones that won't break your bank account, these are a great choice!

    I think Best Buy needs another rating - overall for the price. At a list price of $100, they're really nice. Compared to my Jabra Elite Active 65t or my Bose SoundSport Free headphones, they don't stack up so well. But, at half the price of either of these, they're a bargain. In general, wireless earbuds look odd, like you miss your Google Glass. These take odd to a new level, as the bean shape and bright color look like a pair of beetles are coming out of your ears. The fit's solid. You put the buds in and give them a twist, which allows the wings to lock into your lobes. They stay in place while you move around. Range is excellent, on par with my more expensive buds, absolutely no complaints there. Sound quality is good, but not great. Subtlety is lost in the mix, the bass is significantly boosted, and mids tend to blur together. You won't hear the pick striking the guitar string or the saxophone reed squeak, but it's pleasant enough given, once again, the price. Battery life is excellent, exceeding my other buds (but far off my over the ear cans). I expect around eight hours between charges. The charging case is huge. By volume, it's about twice the size of the Jabra case. It does have enough battery life in it to recharge the buds once, which is disappointing given the sheer size of the unit. @@@@@@@@ The Jabra case will recharge twice. @@@@@@@ It does magnetically lock the buds into their proper place, which is reassuring on two fronts; you're less likely to open it to uncharged buds, and they're less likely to fall out when the case comes open. Controls are simple. Touch either bud once to pause or start the music, twice to raise the sound (right) or lower it (left), a medium length push to activate the digital assistant. Not that said digital assistant was able to understand me at all, because... The microphone is sub-par (perhaps sub-sub-par). It didn't sound good, or really acceptable, on anyone I had try speaking through them. If you have a deep voice, like I do, you can forget it completely. The sounds of the room frequently come through louder than your voice, although the quality is so bad it's hard to make those sounds out. Build quality has me concerned. The case feels cheap. The buttons on the buds feel and sound cheap when you press them, not reassuringly solid like the more expensive buds. I used to buy my teenager Skull Candy headphones - they sounded good enough that she would keep the volume reasonable, and when they were lost or broken,I wasn't upset. This means I've a lot of experience with Skull Candy's customer support, and it's excellent. They've stood behind every product I've purchased. The bad news is that every product has, at some point, broken. How much of that was build quality versus the life of a teenager, I don't know, but the initial impression of the Push gives me pause. Overall, if you want a pair of decent wireless earbuds and you just don't want to spend a bunch of cash, these are an excellent option. I would suggest that you be gentle with them, though.
