Ignoring price... this just kinda works. It’s like night n’ day vs a Jabra Elite 65T I got as a refurb for $90 (both in sound and features). If some cables are ok with you, get a Jabra, or for MUCH less a Jaybird X2. If you want acceptable noise isolation, then get Plugfones Liberate which REALLY isolates.
The BE Free8 has a button on each earpiece but only the left does anything. No volume control. No transparency. All I can say is: it turns on, played, pauses, and turns off.
