Can these be plugged in overnight and not kill the device? My Treblab BT in ear headphones just crapped the bed on me recently. They wont hold a charge if plugged in overnight for more than about 5 minutes. Hesitant to buy another Treblab product seeing how these died with not even a lot of use to be honest. Probably less than 50 hours of actual usage time. Owned them for probably 2 years.

It's just the nature of these products. Cheap, tiny, rechargeable batteries won't last forever. It's a bummer but I usually go through a pair a year. That's just how it is.
Do these have a microphone?
Very blab, I agree. But why are all of these models "headphones" and not IEMs and clip-on earphones?
Am I the only person that loves Treblab drops because their discussion pages are always filled with angry people? Just judging on the comments, for the love of God, dont support this company.

Yeah, based on my experience, I wont be buying another Treblab product.

I agree with ryan on this, the sound quality is decent for the price, but customer service is garbage as is QC
Range on these headphones (at least the pair I bought) is abysmal. Phone has most current bluetooth version and these things would drop in and out of range when I had my phone in my pants pocket, and only worked well (I use this loosely, as in, a few drop-outs per minute) on a full charge, after that it was a downward spiral to the point where you missed more of the song than you heard. When I first got them I was so excited to use them, I spent probably the next 5 nights at my gym using them, but the charm quickly faded to the point where, when I lost them, and found them run over by my car in my usual parking space, I didn't really miss them too much. Got a pair of budget, non water-resistant BT headphones from my girlfriend this christmas, and these can produce perfect playback at half charge from across my apartment.
I'm pretty sure everyone finds a flaw with their Bluetooth headphones here and there. I can clarify however, the XR500 I got from here works like a charm and still going, even after my iPhone 5c gave up and I chose to get a different phone.
I do admit I'm having a few problems too but that could be wear and tear since I got probably their beta version. I am not disappointed with my purchase. I dared to even shower with the XR500. I am surprised they held up.
The noise cancelling part though, when I talk to someone, they said they couldn't hear background noise from outside sources like an ambulance siren near me. They also explained that is noise cancelling and I got a nice pair of headphones. Of course this blocks outside noise somewhat, but I think it counts on the one you talking to for noise cancelling and it works in my case.
I would buy the XR500 again. That says a lot compared to expensive name brand products that breaks on me.
I purchased the RF-100's and right out of the box they were broken and only work while charging. I'm deeply disappointed that Massdrop has put on such shoddy drop. I would absolutely not recommend these. I contacted Massdrop and was told to go through Treblab customer support. I essentially bought a chore with this drop for a product that I no longer want.
As with all Treblab products, do your due diligence. I haven't bothered looking at the 'waterproof' claims but they repeatedly and wilfully mislead over 'noise cancelling' so I have no reason to expect any integrity from them in other areas. Check Amazon etc reviews, see what others say about how disappointing they are, and buyer beware.
Very sad to see Massdrop still providing a platform for this rubbish.
I noticed a comment below someone had battery issues and said they only worked while charging. My question is do they actually stay powered on and usable while charging. All the other bt headphones I have had turn off when plugged in. I would love this if they work this way would help me drown out the noisy people that live with us while I sleep. Btw the ones im looking at are the rf100

Mine have battery issues but you can use them as long as it is charging while you listen to your songs.

I have battery issues with my Treblab IEM's as well which is what brought me to the site today, I am looking for replacements. Whatever they are, I can tell you they wont be Treblab.
All models are currently cheaper at Walmart.com. Shop around...
skeptic
the rf100 i was looking at were even cheaper on treblabs own website. and the pri ce was even cheaper when i found a 10% off coupon online i paid $36 for the rf100
Coupon was: HAPPY10XR
I have to sing a bit of praise for these headphones as they're the first pair of buds that I've purchased specifically for cardio. I grabbed them off Amazon. The fit is great and the sound is better than expected, especially for in-ear.
The coolest thing about these headphones is what happened literally yesterday. I hadn't used them since the beginning of September due to an injury and when I walked into the gym yesterday I realized I hadn't charged them since well before September either. To my surprise they turned on, connected to my phone AND lasted for 40 minutes.
I just thought it was cool that these buds had held their charge for so long.

This has been my most disappointing purchase from Massdrop. I bought them because the greater amount of driver real estate suggested better sound, and indeed they are better sounding that other bluetooth 'phones I've owned, albeit still on the tinny side. The real issue, however, has been really poor earpiece ergonomics.
Unlike most headphones, these earpieces drape over the ears with the associated wires running through the earpiece and the speaker unit dangling off the end of said wire fished through said earpiece. As such the first challenge is to figure out just how much wire needs to be fed through the earpiece to allow the speaker to sit in the ear. Too much and the extra wire gums up the works, catching on hats, glasses, etc. Too little and the earpiece doesn't make contact with the ear. Get it just right--have fun with that--and there are still problems.
Regardless how I've adjusted the wire length the stupid earpieces keep working their way out of my ear. Suspect this is due to the larger driver cage that initially caught my eye: more mass means more momentum imparted to the earpiece as you are, say, driving down the average bumpy road; the more momentum, the quicker the speaker unit shakes loose from your ear. Massdrop indeed. Bought these for my commute, and the not particularly out of the ordinary shaking of the vehicle render them all sorts of annoying.
The icing on the cake involves the earpieces. Said pieces are split to allow the wire to be inserted into them, wire dangle adjusted, and such. Well today was cold, I wore a couple layers with the 'phones draped underneath them when I left home. The friction of the extra layers as I pulled the 'phones out to insert them, however temporarily, into my ear pulled the earpiece off, lost somewhere in my vest, utterly unrecoverable while driving. Of course I failed to remember said lost piece when I got out of the car, so now likely lost in the parking lot lays a small piece of rubber. Guess it's Scotch Tape to anchor them tomorrow. Or perhaps the stapler.
These shortcomings are so darn obvious that it leaves me to wonder if Massdrop does any evaluations of products at all before offering them up. Perhaps it is moving from an aggregator business model, to a liquidating one? It's hard to see this offering as anything other than an effort to offload a dog at the customer's expense.

All I can tell you is that when I click on the link in my purchase history for the pair of 'phones I'm having issues with this thread is where I end up. If all the Trelab drops are aggregated here you might want to mention the resulting confusion to Massdrop.
Advice.
The headphone picture looks like XR500 sold now for $30 on Amazon (dropped from $40 when I bought them and rightly so). In case I'm right, here is my review after using them for several months:
Let's start with positives: detailed sound mainly in highs and mids combined with AptX, good battery life and instant reconnection (with my HTC10) makes these Bluetooth headphones a bargain and a joy to use. However, poor construction and component quality basically nullify all the advantages. Here is my story:
Both memory foam tips came off almost immediately while moving in and out of pocket and lost without trace (after all, they're black) and since silicon hooks are flimsy, they cannot keep silicon tips inside my ears, which is necessary to enjoy the bass (note that silicon tips never fell off). People couldn't hear me during the call, which was not the case with other Bluetooth headphones half of a price. After 5 months of constant but not too aggressive use, left earphone started to stutter and after several more days lying without usage in the car, the headphones stopped powering on altogether - only charging indicator kept blinking during recovery to factory defaults...
Never saw a product with so many flaws and it'll take some time before I consider buying anything from this company.

Please accept our apology for those troubles with your headset. But, no worries, your earbuds are covered by our warranty. Please get in touch with our customer care team (support@treblab.com) and we will help you with ease and in no time.
Just an advice. Do Not buy Treblab’s earphones. i recently bought RF100 through massdrop. It was so disappointing. I mailed them for refund and I haven’t got any reply within the span of 2 weeks.

I've got it, thanks! Our Support Manager Arina did reply several times in order to help you with the steps to proceed further. You are not happy with the battery and fit of the headset. Your 3 last messages have the same text, I suppose that you don't receive our responses. Please get back to us for the details regarding your order. Or, if it's convenient for you, please email us your phone number. I believe it'll be faster and easier :)
IMO it's a good pair of BT inears for this price range albeit the wires of the headphone tend to fall out after a few months, as did mine. The bass is quite well rounded, the trebble may need some assistance with a custom eq curve and the battery is slightly shy of the stated 9 hours of continuous play, but good enough for daily use. TBH I wouldn't compare it to my audiophile over ears but it's good enough for a lower price in ears that's also Bluetooth.
I should have read the description. I was excited to get a pair of BT earphones that had noise cancelling, but passive noise cancelling isn't quite the same. It simply means the earpiece is thicker to help muffle some atmospheric noise. Active noise cancelling is much better, but usually prohibitively expensive due to the very fast electronics involved, and the battery needed to support that speed of audio processing. I've had a couple different pair of these in the past (full earcup, not earbud) and was greatly impressed with being able to listen to music while mowing lawn. (without killing your hearing having the volume all the way up) We'll have to see how these do, I work on very complex electronic displays in stores and at times you really need NOT to hear the crowd noise (Crying babies, people trying out BT Speakers at full volume, etc) to concentrate on the job at hand.
Does it ship to India?
I have had two pairs of these... AMA.
My main issues with them are that the cord comes out of the headphones, thus eliminating any water resistance. This has happened on both pairs within a couple of months. The other issue I have experienced is poor connection and range with my Nexus 6P. On my iPhone 6S Plus, I do not have any connection issues and range is great, YMMV.
Aside from build quality issues and poor connectivity with my Android phone, I quite like these headphones. The sound is pretty bass heavy which isn't a problem for me since I primarily use these at the gym. I like the fit and the selection of eartips they come with.
I reported the issue with the cord falling out of the headphone to Treblab and they provided me a free replacement, although the replacement had the same failure within a few weeks. I simply glued it back into place.
Here is an image of the issue I am describing: http://i.imgur.com/5eX1Ci0.jpg

The reviews over on Amazon seem to go both ways... I think it's somewhat of a lottery.
Kindly try adjusting the equalizer on your device and please double-check upon additional apps installed for managing the sound (they can give the difference in the final sound quality). Please reach out to our support team for the further assistance.
Follow up review, I've had these since the beginning of the year from another drop and initially reported a lot of interference and connection issues. I'm happy to say the majority of that has stopped happening a month or two into use and haven't had that issue since. I've showered with them on and they stutter occasionally but otherwise work fine. I can't comment on the noise cancelling bit because I don't know if I actually notice it :p. The one major downside from my experience aside from the initial connection issues is that the mic sucks. It's impossible to hold a conversation in an environment with a lot of ambient noise like, outside; even with the mic to your mouth. I'm pretty content with them to this day as I haven't had any failures yet (I feel like I've just jinxed myself though).

Thank you for sharing your thoughts about TREBLAB RF100. Happy to know that you enjoying the pair. To figure out about the Mic, kindly contact our support team. We'll help.
I don't know the real technical term but my experience with the noise around me is very good, first earphone that helps focusing on my workout, sounds great and I can't hear my academy loud hall music. Mine had a problem with the left ear piece, cable rupture I think but TREBLAB is helping me via mail support, will update soon.

Thanks Treblab, really top support. Irina help me with amazing speed and overflowing sympathy. I wish my country had tech support as reliable and serious as you guys. You just won a family of costumers, Next? HD55 speakers!!! S2 S2

Thank you for your kind words to us. It means a lot to know that we could help. I sent your regards to Irina!
@TREBLAB Would love to buy these, but I am confused. You say these are passive noise cancelling, which is fine, but the desc of the product says " Utilizing Bluetooth 4.1 technology, they offer up to nine hours of noise-cancelling play time on a single charge" .
huh? Is it passive or active?

Don't hold your breath for them to 'take care' of it. They know it's misleading, there has been no shortage of advice to them as such, they knowingly and willingly deceive.
Corrected to be as clear as possible.
Not noise canceling. False advertising. Tons of fake reviewers shilling the comments on here for treblab yet again. Massdrop should blacklist this shady company.
I picked these up about two months ago when they were on sale on Amazon for $10, with the intention to use them in the shower. Keep in mind they aren't waterPROOF and are NOT rated for any type of submersion. With that being said, I've used these about 50% of the time when I shower, just out of laziness, and they seem to be degrading. I have much more signal losses than I did initially, and I'm unsure as to their longevity. Sound is alright. A little midbass heavy so I EQ that down when I remember to. They definitely sound better than the $10 I paid, and better than you will expect from $36 Bluetooth earbuds. Noise cancellation is total BS, they claim they're "noise cancelling" because they make a seal in your ear and block some noise. Not active noise cancellation like anyone would expect.
Mine broke 3 weeks ago and no repair service wants to open it cause it has a sealed cast, it sucks here in Brazil, what should I do? Anyone know a good repair shop in Brazil for waterproof headphones?

Please reach out to our support support@treblab.com for the further assistance.
Product came as described, sound is great (beats apple's ear piece), great bass and acoustic clarity. It does cut out from time to time randomly, but it's a non issue, probably something re-pairing will fix. Took it on a run, little dropout, sound was consistent throughout the run. Would definitely buy again, due to the quality vs price.
As with all Treblab products, do your due diligence. I haven't bothered looking at the 'waterproof' claims but they repeatedly and wilfully mislead over 'noise cancelling' so I have no reason to expect any integrity from them in other areas. Check Amazon etc reviews, see what others say about how disappointing they are, and buyer beware.

@ferretallica Thanks. Keep up the good work. I totally agree, "Noise-Cancelling" is misleading, apparently intentionally so; passive cancellation - phft!
ferretallica
I have just one thing to say. Thank you.
Woah, this discussion board seems to be a shit show off people arguing over technical terms.
I just came here to see how people liked the product to figure out if I should buy it.
Passive noise canceling?!? Another vote here for willful, deceptive description. For everyone else using the term noise canceling means activate circuitry not just the fact these are in ear devices that provide some sound isolation. I'll pass on this drop.

Treblab is not my company.
The article describes it more like an ear plug then an active phase cancelation circuit.. That would probably affect the water resistance since the mic needs to be exposed to be accurate enough to actively cancel the noise. Not to mention the cost would be a lot higher if it did contain a seperate active circuit capable of effectively cancelling or amplyfying outside noise... I'm speculating a little not knowing what's currently available on the market but at that price point the components would have to be dirt cheep and probably make the product sound bad.. I wouldn't even consider getting into the active thing anyway. Working full time in the production world its universally accepted that passive is better because it's simpler, rugged, uses higher quality components and less likely to add unwanted artifacts like feedback or handling noise. These ear buds would be the equivalent of a sealed closed back designed headphones that are used by studio musicians, drummers, and DJs who need to reduce the noise as much as possible and I guess that would be the equivalent of working out or traveling where the environment is a distraction. That's the intended market segment right? From my perspective headphones are used daily for hours at a time for mixing and recording, -27db is a significant drop that would require a sealed ear piece that Teblab advertises as passive noise cancellation. Lets be honest and just call it hearing protection instead. Thats perfectly fine for tuning out the world but that limits the products usefulness and would keep me looking for a smaller quality bluetooth earbuds so I can untether from the studio while evaluating mixes.. I prefer a semi open AKG type headphone design that lets in some ambient natural sound to blend with the monitors and stay alert enough to hear what's going on. Sealed closed back designs are definitely useful but for day to day a -12db - 6db reduction is comfortable for regular home use. The ideal Bluetooth earbuds for me would have a -27db sealed ear piece acting as ear protection for live sound along with a less dense -12db and -6db option.. Thats something I'd consider for under $100.00. If they sound accurate like my AKG's or Sony's then we might have a winning product that I haven't yet found.
@TREBLAB Got mine a few weeks ago, opened last week. During the week they got wet once, stopped working for 30 mins. After a few days their battery just stopped working - they only work now when connected to a charger. Well, unless it's fixable - worst purchase I had done this year. I really really hope it isn't - they were so amazing for the short while they worked!

Thank you for the answer! Sent an email to customer support. Will update us soon as the situation is resolved. As for how they got wet - got splashed by a sprinkler while I was walking with them :/
Just got new headphones instead of the broken pair - amazing service!
