Usefulness in the gym is nice courtesy of the IPX5 rated WaterSafe coating, giving you not only comfort for sweating in the gym, but the TPE over-ear hook makes sure the buds will stay secure and not fall out (like the AirPods).

Then there’s the audio quality. I’ll be completely honest here — I’ve heard better, but at this price of $129, they sound on-par to what you’d expect from the Skybuds of the world, dare I say better. They aren’t going to sound as crisp as the AirPods, or be as bass-heavy as the Jabra Elite Sport, but the comfort in the sound is balanced, and makes for an average listening experience.

Overall, for the price, I would say it’s a great pivot from the AirPods, especially if you plan on using in the gym as they hold up well, and don’t get in the way at all. Only thing I wish is that they included a charging case.
