Muito bem construido mas perde em qualidade sonora quando comparado ao Galaxy Buds Pro. Alem disso tambem tem um ponto negativo da sua certificação nao ser IPX7 como no Buds Pro. No geral é um bom fone e dependendo a diferença de preço vale a pena.

Design

The first number of the IP rating refers to protection against dust, while the second number refers to protection against liquid. E.g. a first number of 6 denotes that it is completely dustproof, and a second number of 7 denotes that the device can withstand full immersion in water.
We consider a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to carry. A lower weight is also an advantage for home appliances, as it makes transportation easier, and for many other types of products.
