    while the notch has some logical base under it, that ugly toothbrush-tip-like design is just useless and unconvenient

      What? You think this is just an aesthetic decision? It houses the battery and also brings the microphone a wee bit closer.

    Pretty happy with my Anker Soundcore ones.

    They’re not cheap, but I prefer them to my Huawei FreeBuds, Mobvoi Ticpods and EOZ AIR.
