My favorite bluetooth earbuds to date. I have tried several pairs of bluetooth earbuds ranging from Mpow Swift, earbuds from another manufacturer and several of the Taotronics earbuds. These are hands down my favorite. The packaging is very high end and it comes with everything you need including a charging cable, a carrying pouch, lots of different size ear pieces and of course the earbuds all in a nicely padded elegant box. The pouch is about the size of a regular square post it note so it is very pocketable or fits easily into a laptop bag or purse. The earbuds themselves are a nice black finish with all parts of it fully black in color. The little logos on the side are also black which is nice because you're not walking around advertising the brand. The cable connecting the left and right earbuds is a single round, thin black cable. The others I have tried have all been the flat wider cable. I prefer the thin, round cable that these have much more. It being thinner helps it not to get caught up on your shirt collar and tug at your ear like others I have tried. As a result these are more comfortable and stay in the ear much better. Further improving the hold on your ears is the small ear clip that wraps around both ears. This aids dramatically in keeping the earbuds in place without pushing them really far into your ear (which can't be good for you). You can turn your head in any direction and these earbuds stay put. I also prefer the built in pause/play and volume controls built into the small control box on the cable, which also houses the microphone so you can use this to make bluetooth calls as well as listen to music. All of the other earbuds I've used had the power button, pause/play and volume controls built into one of the earpieces. That works reasonably well but it makes the earpieces bigger and it is harder to control in my mind. The mini control box on these is very easy to just feel it and identify the middle pause/play/power button and the up and down volume. I find this one to be much easier to use than the controls on the earpiece. The sounds quality is quite good. It is not tinny like another brand that I have tried. It is a nice, solid sound. It doesn't have booming bass but then again I don't know any earbuds that do. The base is plenty enough so it doesn't sound hallow, which is what I look for in headphones. I don't want booming bass and would rather hear the notes better and just have a full, solid sound. The earbuds powered themselves off by themselves after I left them unused for a while which is a great battery saving feature. They charge with a standard micro USB cable so I just use my phone's charging cable since I have it handy (it does come with it's own short micro USB charging cable, too). Overall I am quite pleased with these headphones and can easily say that they are the best bluetooth earbuds I have used. These will be my go to set of earbuds. To top off the great product Taotronics offers great customer service and a great warranty.
