I'm tempted to pick up a pair of wireless earbuds for listening to audiobooks on the go. From what I've seen though, it would appear that connectivity is an issue with many sets having to be returned because either one bud won't connect or the sound quality will be incredibly poor. Have we now reached a point where the bugs have been ironed out in this technology?

For background: I've used a pair of £40 wireless TaoTronics for about a year now for both in and outdoor use. They've been fantastic but wear and tear is starting to build up and using over ears for summer walks is quite unpleasant.

I have two different sets of TaoTronics wireless earbuds, one set are the style in OP image and the second set are more like airpod shaped. I prefer the latter, as I had trouble getting the correct fit on the former, but my ears are quite small so that might be why, I don't think many other people have issues with them.

Connection wise, they are spot on. I have never had an issue with them, and they are just as good quality as my (also TaoTronics) over ears. They're a bit fiddlier if you use them frequently for multiple sources, they seem to fight you a bit if you want them paired to multiple things, but they still do it eventually. No connection issues, can listen to stuff on my phone sat two floors above or below me in the house.

As someone with comically small ears this is interesting for me. Do you know which version you bought? I've been looking at the TaoTronic SoundLiberty 79 model but now I'm paranoid one will fall out.

I have the SoundLiberty 77's and the 53's. The 77's do work for me with the smallest ear bits (they come with three sizes, I think), but if I don't get them in exactly right, they don't form a proper seal in one ear which is incredibly annoying, though I doubt it'd ever fully fall out.

I reckon you should just go for it. The 77's are fancier than the 53s, the touch controls work better and they last longer, charge wise, so I assume the updated 79's are even better. If they don't work out, you can still return them - I assume you're buying from amazon, anyway.

If you don't care too much about sound quality and you're willing to buy from Aliexpress, you can get Xiaomi wireless earbuds for around a tenner.

Anyone had a problem where the bluetooth between the two headphones will go out of sync so you get an echo effect? It seems to do it both on my phone and laptop but only after a few minutes of listening.

Would be a shame if they're fucked and I have to mess about sending them back.

Update: I emailed TaoTronic directly. They sent me a replacement pair and I didn't have to return the ones that don't work properly.

Seems a bit of a shame to chuck the old ones but I can't think of a use for them.
