Tired of these companies listing only BT 5.0 but not the actual codecs used, if it's just subpar SBC then what's the point
Frankly if it's anything less than AptX HD/LDAC what's the point.
True, I'll take AAC at least for this price though. I know the Audio Technica and RHA are supposed to have AptX but they are over $200
I don't understand why people buy stuff like this when there's no details given...
Because the layman (like me) don't know what details to look for and what they signify. Instead of being patronizing you could point us to some reading material or give us an actual opinion of the product? lol
Nmnb92 - in this case, there really isn't any significant reading material (or actual opinions of the product). This thing is a total wild card and I believe that is the point he is trying to make, although I also understand and agree with your point about him being patronizing.
If I'm being patronizing, it's really only to call out Massdrop and TFZ and trying to get them to actually publish very important details. It doesn't matter if it has bluetooth 5.0 if it only has the SBC codec. The codec is absolutely the most important part and is not identified anywhere. The codec is responsible for the final sound quality... it's like the difference between listening to it on cassette tape vs a high bitrate digital source. The fact that massdrop/TFZ don't say this is very irresponsible I think. It'd be like selling you a car and neglecting to tell you that it doesn't have an engine. (But yea the car is blue! get excited!)
Oh, I definitely agree with what you want to accomplish. If we vote with our $$ to not hold them accountable, we do a disservice to the rest that wish to maintain a high standard with quality of listings. I understand you are frustrated, and if we explain it nicely there is a greater chance of getting people to join the cause. I do so badly want to find a good bluetooth 5.0 with the right codec's as well.
From everything I've been able to determine, these only support SBC and AAC. Technologies have advanced a lot since then, and audio quality has vastly improved using the AptX HD and LDAP codec. I'd definitely recommend not buying these until they verify.
i tried the RHA, not good enough. Senheiser on the other hand are excellent but $$$. Audio technica was too big to fit on my ears comfortably
Klipsch is releasing their true wireless soon.
AptxHD and LDAC do not currently exist in true wireless form to my knowledge. AAC and Aptx are the best you will do at this time.
tangent: does anyone know when Klipsch’s TWS will actually come out?
