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.

It will be hard to remember all those taps and swipes. Another question I have is: I have a pair of Helm IEMs that sound super, but no volume control. Also they fit good until I move my jaw and sometimes they don't just fall out, they get ejected and I find them 15 feet away. Needless to say I can only wear them to the gym on in my home, but never outside or in a crowded environment. Can the Grell get ejected like my Helm and if so can a tether be attached to them?
Generally, music controls are on the right ear, ANC controls are on the left ear. The exception is next track/backtrack, we put them on the left ear so that the swipe gesture couldn’t be confused with swiping up/down on the right bud for volume. I’m scripting a video to demonstrate the touch controls, thinking about how to group things together and if I can think of any other ways to simplify the learning/thought process, but it does become memorized after using them a few days. I have to un-learn what I have learned, to help others learn 😉 I find the foam tips to be less slippery if your ears tend to squeeze out eartips. It’s happened with me too with other brands, especially if the tips are too large (small ones may slip out, but they don’t “eject” for me). With the Drop TWS1X, the antitragus (the lower ridge on the outer ear) helps hold the earpiece in my ear even if they get loose, and the included wingtips should give you additional points of contact to secure them to your ear during vigorous movement. With that said, you probably could tie a piece of thread just below the touch “disk” to each earpiece if you were concerned, but it’s probably not necessary.

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!

What does this part mean in the quick start guide?

When you open the lid for the first time, you are greeted by status lights on the charging case that indicate the initial pairing to your first Bluetooth device: 1.) the four lights turn on in sequence left to right, the earbuds are in pairing mode and looking for a connection. 2.) The left and right half of the lights alternate being on, the earbuds found a device and are establishing a connection. 3.) All four lights are linked and blink, the courtship dance is complete and the pairing is successful.

You can store additional secure Bluetooth pairings this way:

With the earpiece in your ear, touch and hold on the right earpiece for 5 seconds. Use your smartphone/ smartwatch/ smartshoe/ tablet/ computer/ smartTV/ media streamer/ etc settings to select the TWS1X, and the earbuds will give voice prompts to announce pairing mode and pairing successful. If you continue holding on the right touch area for 10 seconds, the earbuds will forget all paired devices (but the earbuds are still paired to eachother). When you open the lid of your charging case, the earpieces begin trying to reestablish a connection to the last used Bluetooth device. If the last used device isn’t available, then it checks if there are any other connections available, in the order in which they were paired.
