I have a pair of Enacfire buds that do pretty much all of that. Since Amazon took a week to ship them to me I got them for free. But they were only like $35 to start with.

What's fantastic is the "what in the actual fark is this thing in my ear" expression that woman has in the article.

/still using wired earbuds because a) they work 100% of the time, b), don't drain the shiat out of my phone's battery, and c) sound better.

5 bucks says it's not long before these earbuds play ads for you without your consent lol. Seems like every Amazon product is all about ads.

Don't forget: d) don't introduce annoying audio input lag on video calls

My ears must be the wrong shape for earbuds because whenever I try them they feel horrible and fall out constantly. I'll stick with headphones. They're well worth the extra bulk when carrying them around to me.

Per the article, they launch the day after the promotion ends.

What a deal, sign me up for 10!

I still love Koss foam ones .

Although with my wireless phone ones I've been using MPOW Flame, which actually hook on your ear AND are tied to each other.

I'm in the market for new buds.  Can the mic be good for talking?   It's so far away from your mouth.

i have a pair from BackBay that are great.  no one has ever complained about the mic quality.  They hold a charge forever too.

No touch controls on the earbuds?

Alexa, increase volume
Alexa, increase volume..
Alexa, increase volume...

The voice commands would be very useful inside a motorcycle helmet though

I have the buds+ and they're pretty nice, 8 something hour battery life on max volume, but...

You can set the touch pad to control volume, or activate voice commands, but not both. Really want to meet the braniac at samsung who thought of that one

Big Tech wants everyone to use wireless earbuds so you have to keep Bluetooth on 24/7. Then they can track you easier whether you're in a store, airport, Capitol building etc.
