@Janesy B has let me know how he found the Buds+ as his arrived recently. Now I post his feedback because he's also had the JayBird X4 and as you may know I currently have the Jaybird X3 which I am extremely fond of to the point I said before that any IEM I get now will have to at least match or better them. The Buds+ sound similar to the wired AKG earphones that come with Galaxy flagships. To many they sound fine, but to me they sounded garbage by comparison to what I'm used to. So on that feedback alone I chose to disregard the Buds+ entirely and stick with the X3s until the next generation of TWS IEM whereby the sound quality is hopefully better than my current non TWS bluetooth IEM. The Sony XM3 may well be as good or more likely better, but the charging case is massive and they are not moisture sealed so for me as an active person and someone who walks 6 miles to and from work each day.... Usage outside in potentially heavy downpours is not uncommon. I don't want to pay XM3 money and have to compromise on some features that I consider to be very important.
