For under $30, no other Bluetooth headphones sound, look or feel nicer.
This is the most important factor for me. Simply put, these earbuds sound amazing and they can get LOUD! The bass is very strong and vocals sound perfect. They really sound better than my $99 Jaybird earbuds and are comparable to the Beats I used to have. The 5 different sound modes is a great added feature (although, sometimes it is hard to tell what sound setting I am in)
Back Bay is not kidding about the 8 hours of battery life. If I turn them on at the beginning of the work day, they are still going by the time I get home. If I pause the music in the middle of the day, the battery life gets extended.
Once I chose the correct ear-tip size (large) the headphones stayed snuggly in my ears during runs and crossfit workouts. The "hooks" go over your ear lobe and prevent the earbuds from falling out. My only complaint is that the earbuds fell out when I tried to go swimming with them.
Water does not seem to affect the electronics at all, but I would not recommend these headphones for swimming. Water gets into your ear canal and forces the earbud out of your ear. The waterproofing is nice for running on rainy days though!
The carrying case is truly great. Surprising it was nicer than the soft case that came with my Beats. The Back Bay case has a hard shell that protects the headphones from being crushed in my back pack.
Things I Dislike:
My only issue with these headphones is that it is sometimes hard to tell what sound setting I am in. But if I unpair them from my phone and then pair again, they reset to the first sound setting (my favorite sound).
Overall, this purchase should be an easy decision for anyone who doesn't want to spend $100+ on Bose, Beats or Jaybird. I highly recommend.
Also, the customer service is outstanding. I loved my wireless ear buds so much that I bought a pair for my son. He likes to listen to music when shooting hoops and when exercising. He accidentally broke his when he fell causing the ear bud piece to break off. This was not covered under warranty, but when I explained the situation to Jake with Back Bay Audio he said he couldn't replace the set but he did give a me discount code so my son could get another set. He didn't have to do that.
All around great experience with Back Bay Audio and these ear buds. It's nice to see this type of quality in a product and this type of customer service from a company. Kudos!
I bought these after doing some research and so far have been really happy with them. I have used them for phone calls and the quality wasn't perfect, but I didn't expect that at this price point - but in terms of comfort and stability, I like them. I am sad because I lost the carrying case the second time I flew with them - including the different sized ear covers and the charging cable. I have other charging cables, but will need to get a new little case to carry them.

But the over the ear hooks are not fixed to the buds. This is because they include some bright yellow hooks with which you can replace the ordinary black ones that come already placed on the buds. They're attached by a detachable loop of rubber and they come off. And the design is just about a guarantee that it will happen. "So, just put them back on." I hear you say.
They're easy enough to put back on but the precise place on the bud is a problem. If you don't get kit back exactly where it was recharging the buds becomes a problem. The way the case is designed the hooks have to be placed precisely in the original location on the buds or it won't charge. It's a pain the rear and spending a lot of time trying to get them to work properly isn't what I bought them for. Unless frustrations your major hobby I say avoid those ones.
My next set was the SoundPEATS True Wireless Earbuds, A better sound than the HolyHigh ones but no matter which of the supplied bud covers I tried they don't stay in the ears if you've moving around.
That's why I began my search again and found these Back Bay buds. I liked the look of them and I really liked the fact that the ear hooks are moulded on, not just placed on the buds.
I read reviews, both on Amazon and other sites and thought for the price they were worth a try. After they arrived I couldn't get them to pair with my phone. An email to the company was quickly answered. All I had to do was turn off the Bluetooth on my computer and the buds paired with the phone instantly.
Very comfortable on the ears, I forgot they were there at one point. They also put out a higher volume than the others and I like that.
I have no hesitation in recommending the Back Bay buds. If you don't have a lot of cash to put out but you want a good sound at a goods price these are the ones I would go for. I'd buy them again if the dogs chewed these ones.
That happened once a while back.
First what is not great:
-they are noisy in the wind, I use them on a bicycle and the wind noise is louder than one would like, probably due to the square shape.
-they can be a little uncomfortable and I find I have to refit them every so often, mind you I am riding for between 1 and 2 hours.
Now the good:
-really good sound, I cant give you a number as to how good they sound, just that I have Bose headhphones, Sennheiser, and others and these are as good if not better. Very rich sound.
-great connectivity. Other bluetooth headphones I have disconnect momentarily, especially in the cold, these do not.
-phone sound is great.
Final opinion, for the price these are tremendous headphones!
