I wanted to review these wireless earbuds because they were advertised as waterproof, making these the only waterproof wireless earbuds that I know of.
The Good: I love that they are small, probably some of the smallest wireless earbuds we’ve tested.
The Bad: Phone call streaming only goes to one ear – whichever you set as the primary ear.
The Sound Worthy: The earbud size combined with the super convenient charging case make these earbuds worth considering.
They have an IP67 rating. IP stands for “Ingress Protection”, or the protective level of the device against solid hazards and liquid particles.
The first digit is the rating against solid hazards. A 6 is the highest rating, so in the case of the xFyro earbuds, they are “dust proof”.
The second digit in the IP rating is the liquid rating. A 8 is the highest rating against liquid particles, so in the case of xFyro earbuds with a IP67 rating, they can be immersed in liquid for up to 1 meter.
They can be worn when sweating, in the rain, or even when showering, but are not recommended to wear when swimming. I’m not so sure that constitutes them as “waterproof” but rather “water resistant”, which is still something to get excited about with these earbuds.
However, we have talked about moisture and hearing devices often https://www.everydayhearing.com/hearing-aids/articles/the-ugly-truth-about-moisture-and-hearing-aids/ and know that there is some additional care required when wearing electronic hearing devices around moisture. Many hearing aids have an IP68 rating and still require some precaustions around water, so I will assume that will be the case for these earbuds as well.
The charging case is extremely convenient and handy.
Music quality is good and in stereo
Distance of earbuds from iPhone is very good. I got up to about 40 ft. before it starting cutting in and out
