Guys dont buy these, they are a ripoff and the quality is absolute shit.

All you gotta do is look at the price. If it’s on Massdrop with that big a discount. It’s more than likely crap someone’s trying to dump.
How do these fit for small ears. My Jaybird X2s are too big and the only earbuds that fit me are the Panasonic Ergofit w/ small eartips
I got mine monday but i wasnt able to do anything with them until today, but i found out mine came dead on arrival. how nice.
I think I was just saved by borders today. I was about to buy these but they won't ship to Canada (I rejoin Massdrop after two years where I left because nothing would ship to me and the first thing I try to buy now won't ship to me now...) So I check the discussion and find that these are actually not that good. I guess I was just saved from a bad purchase. Though i really like the space look. Thanks to everyone who commented on how mediocre these are, I feel better about not being able to buy them.
You're definitely not worth 100, but, are they good $20 Bluetooth buds?
Worst purchase I've made with Massdrop. I hope they stop selling this product. Battery life is no where near the claim. Sound range is terrible. Sound quality is just ok. I gave them away.
The title says "wireless", pictures show long wires. What else is a lie? Obvious scam.

Wireless in the sense that they dont have to connect to anything except through bluetooth. The small wire makes sure the earphones stay together and ensures theres decent sound on both sides. The circular piece on on the wire allows you to cinch them up to keep them tight around you.
I just received my headphones Monday. I bought 2 pairs for the wife and I. I think they feel great, and sound good. However, is anyone hearing a digital sounding buzz in one of the headphones? I can particularly hear it when I'm connected to a device with no or low sound being played. It's not so bad when sound is playing, but still not that great. It happens to both pairs I bought regardless of what device I'm connected to. Does anyone else notice this?
I got a pair last time and I was pretty disappointed. The magnet was super weak and they would turn on all the time, so I was constantly charging them or I would go to use them only to find out they were dead. Just want to let people know some of the issues I've experienced with this drop.
Lmao...99 CAD is the MSRP for these? Geezuz... Ultra is TMart's TLife V8 Pro rebranded and updated slightly (battery life mainly from the looks of it). 18 bucks is about all they're worth, and that's pushing it. The magnetic on/off feature is an absolute nightmare and the build quality is questionable. Everything else is decent though.

All prices on Massdrop are USD, so that would be about $130 CAD.

Yeah, CAD conversions are terrible right now. :(
You lost me at "As seen on Good Morning America"
Hi FRESHeBUDS,
I have a previous model of the Pro, and it appears in the pictures the plastic used has changed (or at least darkened) and you've made them a tad skinnier. I have a few questions if this is the case: 1. Is this due to feedback from previous reviews? 2. Does the Ultra have this same style? The pictures on the drop do not show the Ultra in more than a face-front image. 3. Has the magnet quality from the Ultra also been added to the Pro, and if not, why? There have been numerous reviews about the strength of the magnets, as they are the only way to turn the headphones On/Off.

I'd also like to remark that I am quite pleased with these as a quick go-to wireless bud. They work great, sound fair (for a 15 dollar bud) and I like the wireless-but-wired feature for a neck wrap-around. I haven't really had a problem with the magnets on my Pro's, unless I'm using gloves or they go into my wife's purse (which also unscrews lotions and opens vitamins).
For what I paid, they work great. I've committed to the ultra price too, because why not give these guys some more feedback and a chance? I think they're quality is improving and, with more feedback, their already decent quality will improve.
I can't recommend these bad boys. I bought them (Pro version) on the last drop and I have found the bluetooth to be very weak and my pair has wild swings in volume at random intervals. Build quality is worse then those unbranded $4.99 buds at the grocery store checkout isle. Just like everyone else in the thread has already confirmed, the magnetic on/off switch makes for a very poor user experience when it comes to battery life and carrying. around in a bag.

Seems like whenever MD has a really awesome looking deal on something, you can often expect it to be some crap that a company is trying to dump?
I have a differently branded pair of what is obviously the same design. Let me just say, the magnetic 'trigger' for turning these on and off is a complete deal breaker. You can not put these in your pocket and expect them to be charged when you take them back out. (The battery life also sucks) Avoid these unless they are meant to stay in one location.
It's a pity i couldn't order them from Malta!!! :'(
I received the latest drop (2 weeks??) for the Pro. I need wireless and ones that will stay in my ear, and wanted water resistant , so they looked like a a good match. Audio qualify was not my highest priority. The most disappointing is the magnetic on/off. They just don't stay off when they should. Take them off and toss them on the desk, car seat, gym bag, and you here, "beep, pairing!" Even if you pull them from the ear and connect them on your chest, if they move, they turn on. With the poor magnetic switch go with the understanding that your battery life will only be 8 hours after you pull them from the charger, period. I may buy a small rare-earth magnet to help over come this engineering fail. At least Amazon's Smilism Magnetic Sport Running Earbuds have a great magnetic switch. They just wont stay in the ear.

I also have a similar pair. Also had to buy a magnet to keep these things from wasting their battery. So annoying!
Seeing a lot of poor reviews, here's a good one.
We've been using 2 of the Air model and they have done well for months. No problems with construction or charge. Usage is pretty heavy - daily exercise, lots of sweat, not treated carefully at all.
We have a lot of wireless buds in the drawer and these ones come out most often as they're so minimal. ie they stay out of the way during exercise and are easy to stuff into a pocket heading out on a commute/travel.
Sound is fine, not great, we don't have high expectations in this regard though. We're both mostly listening to books or podcasts.

Oh and someone asked about Android: Yep, I use Android, she uses iPhone. Both working just fine. Seems to be pretty standard bluetooth.
Remember I only have experience with the Air model.
I can't join because it can't be shipped in France apparently. Sad panda :/
Are these compatible with Android phones? It only specifies I phone.

Another user above you commented that they work with Android :P
These are absolute crap. Poorly constructed, weak magnets, fell apart after one charge. Not worth $5, let alone $33, let alone $99! Now stored in my junk drawer. Save your dollars.
And why they cost 29.95 on amazon?
The battery just blew up on mines and im not quite sure why. The power was low from use so, obviously, I decided to charge it. Stepped outside for a few minutes and when I came back, it was burnt.
They didn't even give me the pro pair. I ordered the red limited edition pro pair they gave me a blue pair that wasn't the pro edition. When I asked about this Massdrop said they ran out of the pair I ordered. So why send me a pair that I didn't even order? So I waited all this time for a pair of headphones that I didn't want then when I ask for the one I ordered Massdrop says they cant send me the pair I want and that I can get a refund if I send in the pair they sent me. The only problem with this is I needed a pair at the time and they give no information on how to send them back or if i'm going to have to pay to send them back . Thanks Massdrop!
These look REALLY dumb on their wearer. I'd rather spend 5x as much on Apple AirPods than wear these (unfortunately I already bought these a while back).
I got real tired of charging mine. I'm back to my good old cabled ones. Also, I found the magnets to be on the weak side.
Owned the pro for six months, had issues with the magnets being flaky from the start - they are VERY weak and will not keep together in a pocket. Be gentle with the charging port, the center will push right through if you're not careful - just killed mine yesterday, they are very hard to repair and the warranty is only 60 days. Sound quality is good save for occasional volume shifts, button responsiveness is amazing, they're very light and the cable is fantastic!
Any cons about it? Like a peeping noice or bad latency?
Ewout
Freshebuds air is the only one worth it. It has decent build quality, but the other models suck. One thing to keep in mind is that the remote is quite large on the air model, as it contains the charging port.
I love these earbuds! Waiting for the deal on here (I bought them off Amazon for more)... :(
If you just want a quick glance, the FRESHeBUDS Pro headphones are not worth the supposed $100+ MSRP, and is hardly worth the $30+ price point provided by Massdrop. The quality of the headphones were already sketchy at first, and after ONE WEEK of use, it broke. The main console on the right earbud, literally fell apart, and does not work. I placed it in a safe pocket of my gym bag where I always place my headphones, and after looking... the earphone was in pieces. If you want images, they are provided below. The audio was already LACKLUSTER, and there is a constant ring when it the headphone is on, and the build quality is terrible. I tried to contact their support line for help, but instead I was given a special link to purchase ANOTHER SET OF PRO HEADPHONES. Are you serious? Your company's failure to make a product that is supposed to be used in running, working out, and other outdoor activities broke. You expect me to purchase another? I sent an email that was professional and seeked for a resolution, instead I got an expectation to purchase another? Get out of here. Do not buy these headphones. Sorry, but they aren't worth it.
So I've had the air's for a total of a day, and I must say, they perform pretty well for the 30$ I paid, they're completely worth it if you're not an audiophile, and just enjoy music, and not having to connect it directly to your phone, solid sound quality, easy to charge, just takes as much as plugging it in, the build quality is nice, and the addition of different ear pieces is nice, but also pretty expected when the original asking price is like 90$ overall 8/10, not the best, but more than acceptable
