Very Impressed with where Bluetooth IEMs are going (check the edit section for my issues)
Overall these are very high quality, especially for the price. These are built fairly well and come with a very nice case that seals fairly well with magnets. Pros: These are quite loud compared to other models Good frequency response (fairly flat with some high points around 160/2k/4k typical of nuforce) Great for listening to music that is technical (jazz/postrock/classical) Great for various types of electronics music Pretty good for metal Charging is very quick Battery life appears to be around 8-9 hours per charge but I have yet to use them that long at a time. Cons: The volume will let you overdrive the linear drivers in the headphones (not a good thing) Some songs tend to clip out the drivers When I use them for more than three or four hours they do start to hurt my ears (likely personal but its an issue for me) Buttons on mine move and don't seem 100% secure Changing songs can be very uncomfortable as it forces the drivers into your ear (this is alleviated slightly when supporting the IEMs from the behind your ear) TLDR: These are very high quality and come with the feel of many nuforce products. They are very loud compared to other models, and produce a fairly flat but high quality sound. I would definitely recommend for those looking at around 100 dollars. If you want something slightly cheaper the TFZ B.V2 are my second favorite pair behind these at the moment and are usually around $40 on here. Edit: After using these for a few months I have found some more things that kind of bother me and some things that are good. The good: The sound quality has cleared up and seems more even now that the drivers have "burned in" Battery life seems mostly accurate, I typically go a few weeks between charges because I don't use them much due to my work involving a large amount of meetings They seem pretty robust, I have dropped them a few times and they are still holding together The bad: I don't understand why holding the button turns them off if they turn off when you put them in the case. I would expect this functionality to increase or decrease volume. (why have two ways to do this?) If you can increase/decrease the volume on the headphones, I haven't figured out. I imagine this is because you did not match what most in the industry do. I have also admittedly not bothered reading you manual so I just change it on my phone currently. For some reason you can only use the right ear by itself. If you put the right ear in the case and want to use the left ear on its own it immediately disconnects both channels and powers off. Phone calls don't really work that great. Typically I have issues with the person on the other end hearing me. The microphone tends to pick up more of the IEM rubbing on my ear than anything else. I occasionally disconnect from the IEM while wearing them. This typically only happens when I am driving (typically while passing another car). I am unsure if I am getting interferance from their headphones or what. Occasionally it will disconnect if I am running as well, usually only in one ear. As a price point, I don't know that I would recommend them much higher than the 90 dollars I paid for them. For battery life/sound quality they are extremely competitive in that price range. I do notice there appear to be a bunch of quality control issues that should be sorted. Especially with a name like Nuforce attached to it, I would expect it to be much better quality in general.

Would recommend to a friend.
