                Hate them. The battery dies way too fast. Also, while dangling around the neck, they turn themselves on, and start playing and skipping songs/videos due to the asinine touch capacitor feature.

                                              Buds is a scrap. No need to text a lot - just put to one ear AirPods and Pixel Buds to other and you will see the obvious. Buds - looks clumsy, sounds poor and totally uncomfortable. Buds - it`s 100% useless stuff, so don`t waste your money.

I've tried to adapt to this stuff, but failure. I feel totally uncomfortable, and this is the first time I feel like something is wrong with my ears.
                                                                                    When I'm moving or running I always want to push it deeper, because it feels like you're almost lost them. Totally disappointed. The sound is poor. I don't want to promote Apple, but their cheapest earphones the most comfortable and the best sound for that money. All 3 month I'm using the Buds I was hoping that I would get used to this stuff, but it was a mistake. I should have returned it. Now it's just a nice small stylish fabric box in my backpack and nothing else.
