Product Description
We partnered with Axel Grell—legendary engineer behind some of Sennheiser’s most sought-after headphones—to create a true-wireless IEM with unprecedented audiophile-grade performance. Working closely with Axel’s new brand, grell, we left no feature unrefined. Noise-canceling is revolutionized with grell’s innovative psycho-acoustical Noise Annoyance Reduction (NAR) system. Connectivity is optimized with Bluetooth 5.2 and support for the latest codecs. Communication is crystalized with an advanced microphone array and patent-pending Multilayer Turbulence Eliminator (MTE). And sound quality? It’s best-in-class, thanks to custom-designed dynamic drivers. Introducing the Drop + grell TWS1X IEM: your new true-wireless staple.

When I work out, I use an MP3 player on my smart watch. Android 7 has a very good MP3 player with volume control. I now have a new smart watch with Android 9 with a limited MP3 player with no volume control and the volume is too low. Does the Grell have volume controls? And what other controls are available. Also so my experience with touch controls is that when I try to adjust the fit in my ear, it pauses the player or jumps to another song.
The grell TWS/1 has glass touch controls for volume, playback, ANC on/off, transparent mode, etc. Its responsive like a smartphone’s touchscreen. You can grab the edges of the “disc” to reposition them with low likelihood of bumping controls. Karin Grell made an excellent diagram of the touch controls, I’ll find them and share with you :) Edit: It’s a PDF, which I can’t upload here. So here’s some screenshots of the PDF for you 😂 ought to do the job!

Are you going to drop support on this after a year, like you did for the Drop Pandas?

Don't recall any dropped support for Panda. Had a FW update a few months back as well.

How do I troubleshoot connection or firmware update issues?
Hey Everyone, we’ve seen a few troubleshooting requests out of the first 250 units that came out. grell audio has reached out to Sonarworks’ software specialist to look into things. They may have more to add, or do on their server end, but meanwhile I’ll share some general troubleshooting tips, and the support email: support@grellaudio.com

Factory reset (this has “Have You tried turning it off and on again” magic): ”Forget” the TWS1x pairing from your devices’ Bluetooth settings. Touch and hold both earpiece’s capacitive touch fields simultaneously, for 10 seconds. Then, put the earpieces back in the charging case for a handful of seconds, take them out, and manually pair them with your audio sources again (hold the right earpiece’s touch field for 5 seconds). Firmware Update Tip: Play music while you perform the firmware update. Yes, seriously! EDIT: new SoundID update makes this unnecessary 😉 The TWS1x makes two connections to your smartphone/source with SoundID: BT Classic (normal pairing in the system settings) and BLE Connection (through the SoundID app). The update is performed over BLE, however it should solve several issues if you pair the earpieces to the smartphone first (in iOS/Android system settings) before attempting an update through the app. Firmware Update steps Here’s a walkthrough video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iJr3hZOv_b4
  1. Make sure the earpiece has at least 50% battery charge (15 minutes in the case should do).
  2. Use home WiFi, not public WiFi or cellular data if possible (limit chances for interference or lost signal).
  3. Pair both TWS/1 earpieces to your phone, leave them on a table.
  4. Use the SoundID app, run the firmware updater. You should be done after this!
  5. Update may take several minutes. Some people say it was very slow and seemed to get stuck at 50%, but eventually it finished. If update fails or appears to stay frozen in progress for over 20 minutes, place both earpieces back into the charging case to restart back in the last used firmware.
  6. If update fails, Re-download firmware after checking steps 1 through 4.
Good news: if you lose connection to the firmware server, and put the earpieces back in the charging case, the TWS1x is set to automatically restart and use the last completed firmware install, so you won’t brick your device.
