    Thanks for the informative review!

    Could I ask for more information with regards to comparing it with the previous Bluebud Xs?

    How many hours were the previous set rated? Are the X2s using an updated / different set of bluetooth specs now as well?

    I own a pair of Xs, but have been having trouble maintaining a good fit after a while. Am considering if I should simply purchase the sports earbuds or upgrading even if so.

      I believe the previous were rated for 8 hours, but I found the X2s to hold a charge up to 10 hours. But if you have an old pair of Bluebuds that are around a year old, the battery isn’t going to hold a full charge of 8 hours like they did when new. The bluetooth specs are probably the same, but the internal components have been updated so I’ve noticed they don’t disconnect as easily when placed far from my phone
