Keeps losing signal and is a hassle to charge.
Great sound for the size and price. So far they have held the Bluetooth connection and have shown to be exactly as the descriptions claimed.
I'm using mine with a Google Pixel XL (1st Gen) and an iPad Air 2. I have no complaints about the sound, but the Bluetooth connection is very unreliable. I have many moments where the right earbud will cut out completely, and may or may not resume playback.

I noticed that it seems to happen more frequently with my iPad. I do have a cover for said iPad with a Bluetooth keyboard built in, but disconnecting it or turning it off hasn't helped. Is this issue common, or is my unit just defective?

The charging wire should have the ability to charge both at same time otherwise if I am reading it right it takes two hours for each bud. With a double plug two hours total

From what I've read, the charging wire charges an internal power bank in the holder, which charges the earbuds when you put them back in.
Sound is very subjective and what might sound perfect for some might not be a winner for others they never claimed to be at the same calibre as Shure SE846 or Bang & Olufsen BeoPlay E8 and they are not, but in all do honesty these guys don't sound half as bad as some reviews claim them to be and in the interest of fairness deserve a little credit particularly when you compare them with wireless ear phones twice their price with annoying random connection drop outs every lagging with noticeable out of synch audio ( Bose Sound Sport free wireless) every time you try to watch a video, You tube clip for example, let alone God forbid a movie for that matter.
For instance in Bose SoundSport free the Right earphone (Master) is the only side that connects via Bluetooth which will then transmit it's data to the Left earphones (Slave) using only the wireless connection that results in out of synch audio particularly in watching a video)
in contrast these pairs to Bluetooth individually on their own eliminating the video lag.
But to label them a twenty dollar iem is just a little bit harsh and unjustified in my opinion particularly when there are far worse choices out there in a similar price range.
I admit I was very skeptical when I first ordered mine on the last drop thinking that after the first twenty minutes listening they'll go straight to the bin, yet I have been pleasantly surprised How well the little buds hold up.
Yes they do have a bit of bass but nowhere near as overpowering to muffle the mids and highs as mentioned in some reviews.
No they wouldn't set your house on fire Yet they are not as primitive as they are suggested here, far from it, if anything, specially at this price range.
I found them really comfortable to wear for hours, don't stick out of your ears like dogs balls, yet sounding good enough to want to come back to every time.

The bluetooth connection is crisp and clear with out any frequency interference or low-end hissing noise or drop outs that you might hear with on some Bluetooth connected ear phones, as if you are listening to a AM radio.
In listening to everything from classical, jazz, electronic and acustic I collected a diverse range of iems and big cans, amps and so on . . . Although I am far from being an audiophile I am not an stranger to a decent quality sound and this IEM truly dosen't disappoint.

Thank you DarinJD, as expect with a small battery. Perfectly suitable for a normal day of work (go to work, listen to music, listen a bit during break and finally on your way home). Perfect! Thanks again, will be eye balling this one till it comes again around!

You are welcome Daniel, we are happy you enjoy them and appreciate your feedback. As we look at next generation features the feedback and comments truly help. All the best to you.
Having just received mine, take this review with a grain of salt. I'm not sure if they need to burn in or anything, but they're not worth $75.

They're not terrible, but they don't make $75 worth of sound. The charger/case is neat, and it's far better than my last pair of wireless Bluetooth headphones. The headphones are also quite easy to use.

The problems:
- The headphones have too much bass. They just don't sound right. The highs are lost, the mids and lows are muddled, and you just don't get much depth to what you're listening to.
- The headphones can sound rattly, but this seems to depend on the Bluetooth on the device sending the signal to the headphones. Apparently Apple has piss poor Bluetooth in the 15" MacBook Pro from 2015. My LG G6, however, seems to not suffer from the rattly sound when using these.

These are fine for the convenience of the form factor, but for the sound I'd expect them to be a bit cheaper.
These are identical to Rowkin, HomeSpot, Savfy and others. I’ve had the Savfy and HomeSpot versions and I like them a lot. Check eBay though as you can get these cheaper and I recommend you get the bigger battery case.
These vs the Bragi Headphones?

Hi, The Bragi Headphones are larger in size and do have some control features built into the earbud. As far as sound performance in my opinion the I am Sound have a strong bass as well as overall sound. The price point on the I am Sound is much better than others in the marketplace. In addition, the price the Massdrop is offering I am Sound is superior to any other retailer on the market.

Bragi "The Headphone" headphones had a really low max volume in my experience , they are bigger and a little less comfortable, and when you put the headphones back in the case they did not turn off or dissconnect from the phone, an issue that tripped me up many times. But it had its good sides too, the transparent audio (or whatever the mode is called that allows outside audio to be played over the speaker) was awesome and the charging case held a much better charge.

These headphones (or rather, the rowkins I have that are the same from what it seems) have more volume, but are a little unbalanced sounding, their connection to one another is sometimes a little wonky (a problem that does not impact the bragis because they use a different technology to connect with one another, these ones use bluetooth. I hear this earpeace disconnecting and reconnecting from time to time issue is much worse for folks who keep their phones in their pockets, I have very few issues with keeping my phone in my purse though and rarely wear pants with pockets :/ so I cant speak to it all that much). Some very real things that do bother me about these involve how it charges. Its charger gets split open to plug in, and one half can go behind the other half, (thus going over one of the ear pieces, and while the battery of the charger is charging, that internal ear piece is charging, but the other ear piece does not charge until you take it off the charger, and re-attach the two halves back together at the center, allowing the batteries power to pass to the second ear piece (this may just be a defect in mine though). Also, now that I have had them a bit, the chargers battery has weakened enough to not be able to signal that the ear pieces should be shut off when placed on the charger.... though up until about a month ago, this feature always worked fine.
OH! And, when you start playing music/sound/whatever from these ones, they make the sound fade in, presumably to not suddenly blast super loud music into your ear if you arnt expecting it. This is fine for normal music and such, but in some apps that play short sounds (in my case, memrise for learning another language) it does not get up to an audible volume until the short sound clip is already over, so I cant use it with these headphones.

Overall, I like these more though, to the point where I am looking at the ones that come with the larger rowkin charger which will hopefully help me get past the only issues I currently really have.
I have a pair of Bluetooth earbuds that cannot be charged with anything but the smallest tips installed. Can these be charged with any size tip installed?
Crashspeeder
Hi, I am Sound comes with 3 tips sizes (small, medium and Large). All tips fit inside the charging station and will work. Select the tips that provide the best comfort and sound.
These look eerily similar to those headphones on Amazon https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B0751GG26Y/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_Wc9tAbQYBHE79

Which are the same as the rowkins

These look eerily close to the generic X2T earbuds one can grab from AliExpress for around 20$ - the packaging is different indeed, but the form factor, size, and even the indication LEDs look way too close to that model to be a coincidence.

Don't get me wrong, those headphones are awesome for 20$, but a slight re-design and re-brand is not worth 50$+ in my opinion.

I am not familiar with the X2T units, but can let you know the manufacturer I work with owns the patents. There are a number of occasions the patent has had to be defended. The manufacturing costs for our units are well above what you indicated and confident that part of that is due to superior quality components. I have seen myself a few knock-offs when I have gone to the electronics show coming up because of the success we are seeing.

Thank you for sharing and happy you like the sound of your units.
