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.
