Anybody got these?

https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/pamu-slide-born-for-music-never-fall-out

Keep seeing their ads everywhere... very aggressive with the marketing.

They have some seriously impressive specs as far as battery life goes. 10 hours play/talk time (45 days standby), and the case can charge them another 5 times before the case has to be charged, so a total of 60 hours from a fully charged case. The case can also wirelessly charge your phone, so that's a big plus. Plus Bluetooth 5.0, IPX6, auto-pairing, fast charge, and touch control.

A whole bunch of NBA players have video testimonials in the link. Some 100,000 backers and $6 million+ raised.

$69 w/out phone charging feature, $79 with. Will be $199 after campaign, they say.

Thinking of getting them.

Can they be used independently? The big downfall for many of these wireless ear pods, other than airpods, is that 1 side is the master...can’t answer calls on a particular side, or use one side at a time with full functionality

Yes they can, from reading users' FB comments complaining they couldn't figure out how to and the manufacturer responding with instructions.

I placed an order yesterday.

Funny how a month or so ago I got my latest pair of wired earbuds, my most expensive ever, and was dead set against getting Bluetooth ones as I did not want to use up my phone's battery and also did not want to have to charge them frequently.

But these are too good to say no to since they last a long time, plus are ridiculously cheap compared to many of the good ones. Wonder if they will also drain less power as they are Bluetooth 5....

hmmm. i've been using these around the neck wireless headphones for over 3 years. now that wireless earbuds have been around long enough to get past 1st gen tech issues, I've been thinking about getting some. just did a bit of research on these vs other options and these do look pretty good, especially at the current pricepoint. tbh the marketing style and NBA player testimonials are more of a turnoff, but oh well I just bought some anyways.

^ Haha awesome!

Yes, I do agree about the marketing strategy being somewhat of a turnoff.

Interesting... don't know if you are being serious or sarcastic, but they have a "pretty awesome" price too! Didn't know such a thing existed.

But even at a price I would pay, I still wouldn't buy wireless over the ear headphones.

I didn't know such a thing existed either. Could be a game changer.

^ Maybe.

But it would be weird to see people walking around with those on their ears.

Either way, it won't potentially become a game changer unless a big brand gets into it, such as Samsung, Apple, LG, Sony, etc.

Microsofts new wireless earbuds look worse than all others in my opinion.

Yeah I love all things Surface, but those look dumb as hell.

Looks wise, what about Powerbeats pro? Looks more like a traditional bluetooth earpiece.

I got mine yesterday, finally.

A bit bigger than I expected, but they don't feel bulky whatsoever in the ear. The volume controls didn't work super reliably the couple minutes that I played with them last night. Hoping I'll be able to figure out the magic touch pretty quickly and it won't be a problem.

I hear Robert Kraft is a big fan of the magic touch too
