" ...  And unlike a few other reviewers' experience, the bluetooth connection between these three devices has been rock solid for me. ... Whether the bluetooth connection would be reliable for you may depend on your device's hardware design and the OS version it is running.  ...  "

No true wireless earbuds have had the ease of use and consistency that I’ve had with Apple’s AirPods, but they just wouldn’t stay in my ears.  ...  "

" ...  In my opinion TrueConnect is currently the best true wireless earbuds in this price range: good audio fidelity and noise isolation, comfortable yet secure fit, crisp and responsive controls, IPX5 water resistance, long battery life, and an understated, refined look.  ...  "

" ...  Called Amazon support and they had me reset them and reconnect.  ...  "
comment
" ...  Only negative points seem to be the inconsistent button pushes, as I can never seem to summon the Google Assistant and then get back to playing music. ... The lack of an App is also worrying as these will probably never see any firmware updates, so what we have now is what we have forever, until some Bluetooth update/Android update breaks them. ... Update January 23rd 2019  ...  "
comment
" ...  Now it's entirely possible that (another) firmware update RHA releases in the future could fix this, but $170 is too much to bank on nothing more than a "hope". ... Furthermore, the fact that RHA has NO mobile app to update the firmware yourself is so completely unacceptable in 2018 that it's mind numbing. ... To get a firmware update, your only option is literally to send it back to them (which ends up going out of the country if you are in the US) and waiting weeks for it to come back, with the issue maybe being fixed or maybe not - you simply don't know.  ...  "
