What??? I am terribly sorry for this... This is strange.
Please send me your contact details by email and I´ll get you new pair by expedited shipment. jyri.jokirinta (at) optoma.com.

$15 for shipping LOL?
This is ridiculous... It's been a month since the item was shipped and no sign of it being close. The tracking has been stuck for three weeks!
Haven't received mine yet. Already spent a week stuck at JOHN F KENNEDY INTL, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES according to the tracking offered by USPS. I hope i receive them cause i spent about €70 on these.
These have an uncanny resemblance to $20 Acorce earbuds I purchased on Amazon. Perhaps they source the same components and replace the all important driver. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B06XGD745D/ref=cm_sw_r_tw_dp_U_x_03.fBbBSSMKSE
The biggest problem with these rechargeable earbuds is that the tiny batteries are not replaceable, so it becomes a disposable item after a year or so.

Nope. We design our products from zero.

I received my unit today. I think it's a dead-on-arrival.
Problem: When I pressed the power-on button for 3 seconds, nothing came up. No light, nothing. I thought the battery was out of juice so I charged it for 3 hours. The charging light was blue, but it kept turning on for 10 seconds, then off for 10 seconds, in a loop. When it stayed blue for a while, I thought it was fully charged so I unplugged it and pressed and held the power button for 3 seconds but the unit failed to turn on.
If someone knows why this is happening, could you please help?
Thanks.

My apologies for the delay, I haven't seen this message earlier.
The power button would need to be held down longer than 3s. You can hold until you see blue light - this indicates the earbuds are on. If you keep holding down, the earphones will go into a pairing mode and you'll see blue and red lights blinking. Also, the earbuds will say "Power on", "Pairing mode activated". Here is a short setup video for the earphones: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pCjHRgtNyqg
If this did not help please contact us so that we can trouble shoot, and worst case exchange to a new pair. https://www.optoma.com/us/support/contact-us/

Price when u purchese it?
No warranty offered on these? I imagine a lot of people are going to take a skip if this is the case.

1 Year warranty.
I am disappointed. I received my set this week and was anxious to try it out. A quick test at home was great, pairing to my phone was quick and easy, the earphones sounded great out of the box. However, i bought these for exercise, and this is where the trouble started. I typically exercise with my phone in my pants left pocket, and despite the short distance, my movements cause the sound stream to constantly break up. When walking it's not so bad, the stream only breaks up a bit once in a while, not so bad. But when i'm using gym devices, and move quite a lot, and my movements are more extreme, the music constantly breaks up. It's like listening to a scratched CD that keeps skipping. This loses the whole point of getting these, i got them for exercising without tangling cables, but if the music stream is not continuous, what is the point? The description says they're good for up to 98 ft, but even from 2ft with a layer of fabric separating, it was no good. Not sure if these are defective, or just generally not good. Please let me know how i can go about returning these.

I walked away from my phone the whole width of my gym today, maybe 30 feet? Then climbed on a cage and did explosive pull-ups. No break. My phone was inside a pouch. The BT emitter is the problem with these. I had a Sony A15 DAP that does AAC, range was less than pant pocket to ear.

I already own a pair of these, and can confirm they sound pretty decent. My only complaint is how when you insert the micro USB cable, it bends the flap that covers it. It seems like an afterthough, or slightly unfinished. Disappointing on a product that is otherwise quite well refined.
How well do these fit under helmets and have the charging issues been solved?
CottonSwab
These are big, and probably won't fit comfortably under any helmet.
CottonSwab
Hi, just saw your message - I’m assuming motorcycle helmet? I currently use AKG 323xs, and when slipping a helmet over them, they sometimes pop out of my ears. If they don’t, then sound great - but because they’re wired, it’s annoying wrestling w them. Have you managed to find a decent pair of small bluetooth buds?
Does this model have a microphone?
peteza90
yes it has
Just got my set. I am enjoying them, but unfortunately it appears that they do not want to charge. I tried multiple chargers and cables to no avail. The light doesn’t come on which I thought that maybe it just wasn’t indicating so I just left it connected. Came back 45- 60 minutes later and it was still saying 60%. How does getting this resolve work through Massdrop? Thanks.

I’d be a little more accepting of it failing after 2 years, but I just got mine yesterday so it’s very frustrating.
Klsummers92
Yup learned my lesson and just ordered Bose for triple the amount so maybe 6 years of use ??? ya sure!
Bought one back in Nov thru massdrop. Everything seems great till a few weeks ago, not able to charge the unit. It still works when the power usb cable is connected and charging. But the moment the usb is unplugged the unit goes flat dead experience the same ?
Anyone else getting static noise and popping even when no music is being played? Is there a solution or are mine faulty out of the box? Or maybe thats just normal?

Ok, so how much time would it take Massdrop and Nuforce to send them to Poland?
Hey Jyri, I've been thinking about my experience with the be6i iems and I think I would rather have something wired like the EDC IEMs. Is it possible to exchange the faulty ones for that?

Why did you link this?
Why my NuForce shipped to Singapore, but can't reach my address? January 25, 2018, 7:52 pm Incorrect Address - Item forwarded / redirected SINGAPORE, SINGAPORE

Thank you for the recommendations, i was typing in all caps so i could call for attentions seeing as the drop for the TFZ Series 2, 4 and My Love II's where ending and those where the ones i would've originally bought. This is also my very first time buying IEMs so i think i got a bit to exited and just jumped on the EDC's when i saw how many positive reviews it has. Thank you again, it has inspired me to think about the product more when i get it, whether it is in the audio departement or more in the tech departement's.
pjetore
Any time, pjetore!
I had a set or should I say 5 of these. They do sound good and have good battery life, but they continually broke on me ( an ear bud would go out) and i had to send them back to Optoma about 5 times in a 6month or so span before i gave up on them. Their support is easy to work with so i commend them on that, but i would not recommend them at all.

What was the Alternative you went with?

I have two questions:
- Would these be comfortable for a person with small ear canals? I've been reading a lot of negative comments about the size of the earbuds and how they don't fit into one's ears.
- Is the range really 30 m? I intend to play basketball with these on, so ideally I'd like the range to span the half court.
sodiumnitrate
The part you insert in your ear is tiny, as long a you pick small tips you should be good.
As to range, in my experience there is no way it extends to 30 meters. I’d say 10? The range on these is nothing special. The main problem you’ll encounter (and that will be a problem with more or less any wireless headphones until at least Bluetooth 5.0) is that a wide-open basketball court is the worst place for signal quality. With no walls to bounce it gets lost. Just turning a corner into a large avenue I got cuts and interference, so much so that I bought wired headphones for when I’m out and about.
Settling for a lower-quality SBC codec should alleviate the issue. I’d say it‘s a shame to get these and use a 160 kbps stream, but at this price...

Thanks a lot! I'll opt for cheaper headphones, then.
I’m reading a lot of über-negative comments that baffle me. Obviously a lot of people are having issues and I don't doubt anyone’s claims.
However. I DO work out with those in my ears, several hours a pop, with a lot of inversions and balance tricks upside down, as well as running and a lot of dynamic movement. If anything bothers me in terms of fit, it’s the rubber of the cable between the earbuds that tends to snag a bit on a sweaty neck. Note I’m not even using the accessories provided to fit these stronger inside the ear.
These ARE athletic iems, why even dispute that? They are waterproof, sweatproof and dustproof, perfect for outdoors trails as well as the gym. They’re quite big but I can’t imagine a situation where that would be a problem and they look great and are sturdily-built. As to weight - it remains negligible compared to headphones.
The way I see it many have trouble finding the correct seal. I myself had to go for Comply tips in Large, otherwise I would indeed feel the iems moving around and the sound was crappy. That would also explain why some of you are dissatisfied by the bass - these are not for bassheads, granted, but the bass is very punchy and outstandingly detailed for the price and considering this is bluetooth. Stereo separation is top-of-the-line, on a par with very expensive gear, which adds to the fun even if the general soundstage is not comparable with open headphones. I’ve auditioned $300+ wired headphones from well-known brands that sounded noticeably worse and lower-fidelity than the Be6i.
Battery life on my unit and my wife’s wasn’t 10 hours at all, more like 6 at the start in AptX/AAC, which is already better than most athletic iems. It went down to 3 or 4 after a year, at which point Nuforce replaced them for us. Quite the great customer experience.
For people frustrated by the amount of bass in the Be6i the new Be Free8 by Nuforce (so-called « true wireless » iems) are more tuned to emphasize bass.
This is a pretty darn good set of Bluetooth earphones for sure; https://thecontraptionist.blog/2017/09/03/optoma-nuforce-be6i-bluetooth-for-the-discerning-listener/
Some solid alternatives would be the ADVANCED Model 3 or Evo-X, just keep in mind their wireless connections aren't as stable nor do they offer the same crazy range or battery life. If you want something bassy, give the Brainwavz BLU-200 a shot.

Here's my review of this. Definitely take a read, there are distinct pros and cons to this earphone.

I enjoyed your review as well as some of your others. Could you suggest a couple other BT iem you prefer, in terms of sound? Thx.
The price at the German Amazon at the moment is 89 euro without the shipping, so almost no price difference when you add the TVA for the EU.
I bought them couple of months ago and it's my first bluetooth headphone (earphone) ever. AAC or AptX supported, battery life is really good. Sound is kinda hissy but i tried couple of different bluetooth earphones later and i found out that this little background noise is something common. Well for Spotify, podcasts and audio books it's more than enough. But if you don't mind the typical (verry little but present) background noise it's capable of playing "nearly CD quality sound" via AptX supported devices.
I got these on a flash sale on GearBest. It has become my go-to Bluetooth IEMs if I have an itch to go wireless. It's nice they included Comply tips, I use the medium ones, provides isolation and comfort I want. I like the sound signature on these in its stock form, not to bassy. Make sure you got an aptX / AAC compatible device.
These look like a Jaybird X knockoff.

The Nuforce BE6 was released in 2015. The Jaybird Bluebuds X was released in 2013.

They aren't.
I have these and I'm quite happy with them. I put some triple flange tips on them and they never fall out. These weren't meant for exercise, so people complaining that they can't go jogging with these should really consider what they were meant for. They last up to 8hrs on a charge as advertised so no complaints there either. My only complaint when I got them was that they didn't seem to have enough bass. Granted, I'm a bass-head, but even if I weren't, the bass was just downright weak, almost non-existent. Then I noticed that these had small port holes on them. I used 1mm strip of duck tape to cover them (it actually looks like it belonged there as part of the original design), and OH< MY < GOD!!! These things transformed in bass beasts!!! They now are my favorite buds for the type of music I listen to (hip-hop and electronic).
I can see how the size might turn people off, but for me (I have a pumpkin head) they are fine. The convenience of not having to worry about wires snagging and causing my phone to hit the ground is a huge plus, and as mentioned, the sound profile once I covered the port holes is OUTSTANDING to my ears. I think these buds are getting a bad rap. Anyway, that' just my humble opinion. If you like bass, don't mind doing a simple mod, plan on using these as intended, and don't mind the size, I can't recommend these enough! For reference, I have the TFZ Series 5 (black), and Sony XB-500 (cans), sony mdr xb950bt (cans), Beats studio, Klipsch x10, and many more buds that I can't remember the names of. After the tiny and simple mod I mentioned, I think they sound just as good as my XB-500s which have 40mm drivers, which is a pretty tall order. Again, that's just my experience with them and my humble opinion so don't hate me too much! :)
piercjenkins
Can we get some pictures? Just curious :)
TheXonarConnection
Here you go. I just put triple flange tips on to get a good seal and a small strip of duck tape over the pin sized port hole on each bud. It turned these things into bluetooth bass beasts!

Just got mine today, what an absolute waste of money. I kept reading about people saying they're big but from looking at the pictures I thought they didn't look that bad. Well it looks and feels like I have AA batteries sticking out of my ears. Even with the winds there's no way these are staying in my ears while I run, I feel like even if I turn around too quick they're fly out. I know they aren't particularly made to be athletic earbuds but come on.
I haven't even taken the time to listen to them yet but I can already tell that they are going to get thrown in a pile of old junk in the next few days. Very disappointing, I knew I should've cancelled my order when I kept reading more and more bad reviews. Why do these keep getting picked for drops?
I might give an update after I listen to them, and I'll try to do the recommended 50-100 hour burn in lol

Thank you Derek. I appreciate that you took the shot with our Bluetooth IEMs. We are working on the successor on which we should have addressed the concerns you are having. Once we have this product ready to ship, I´ll send you a note. Hopefully we can deliver.
derek.morash
You are right. You can not even walk properly wearing it. Running !!! forget about it. This is for only sitting down and listen music but thats not the idea for bluetooth IEM should be. The sounquality is pretty good though when you properly burn it.
