I bought this product as I had a need for a basic, light and balanced feeling, sweat resistant, truly wireless earbud headphones to wear while I am riding my actual bike or a stationary bike. So far, these headphones have met my needs. They feel light and secure in my ear while I am riding. These are not high end audiophile headphones. The sound reproduction has been adequate. I would say they are slightly above average with minor low frequency response. But, that is ok, for me. The only issue I have encountered is that the bluetooth connection gets choppy every once in a while.
Pros: -Feels light and very comfortable in the ear -Lots of included earbuds and wings to customize fit -Sweat Resistant -Reasonably priced for level of build materials and quality which is very good -Long play time on a full charge
Cons: -Occasional bluetooth connection choppiness -Limited onboard functionality/No track skip-only pause/play and answer/ignore call -Cannot be independently turned off without charging case

The sound is on par with other earbuds I have had, nothing spectacular but very good. The reason I bought them is to wear on a motorcycle, which they work great. They stay in my ear, although I had to use the largest earpieces to do so and they get uncomfortable, but they stay in! Now the bad. They do not shut off. So if you take them out and put them in your pocket or hold them, they will place a facetime calls on your iphone, very randomly. This has happened to me 5 times in 1.5 months. Also, without warning one earbud will go dead almost immediately out of the case. This is rare but very annoying. This is the only pair of true wireless earbuds I have owned so I do not know if these complaints are common. The random calls made me want to return them but they do work on my motorcycle so oh well.

I bought these primarily to use while riding my bike, and they have not disappointed. First and foremost, they fit an stay in my ears, which is no small feat. I have tried countless in ear headphones (include Apple and Beats) and none have stayed in securely enough to ride with. These went in my ears and stay in. The other challenge I have had with true wireless earphones is distortion and interference when my phone is in my back pocket while riding. Again here, the Cleer Ally's have not had any major issues. Additionally, the ability to use just one while keeping the other in the charging case is great when I'm in an environment where I need to be able to hear external noise like traffic, etc. As for audio quality, well, if I was writing this review elsewhere I'd probably say it was fine, but I know Crutchfielders have higher standards, so I'd say that music quality is average. Not much bass and not as loud as some headphones I've used, but certainly adequate for my intended use. Microphone during calls seems to work fine. The only other quirk I've found is that there is not a way to turn them off without sticking them in their charging case. Maybe I'm just missing something, but haven't figured out a way. Otherwise, no complaints. Battery life thus far has been great - I used them constantly on a 6.5 ride with no issues and the case is good for at least 2-3 charges before requiring a re-charge.
Pros: Great Fit Good battery life
Cons: Average audio quality

the product works great. They are just to large for my ears. Even with the smallest ear attachments. I haven't found any buds that work for me.
Pros: works great
Cons: My ears are too small

Secure fit for exercise, comfortable fit with included ear insert package, sound very good, plenty of volume, pairs well with Android and has a strong signal to stay paired, comparable sound quality to my 1st G Airpod. I haven't experienced quite 10 hours on the ear without recharge yet. I'd say maybe 5 hrs is more accurate; and the case/battery bank recharges quickly and holds PLENTY extra charge for on the go. Well worth promotional price when purchased. I could see paying full price for them as this Cleer brand catches more momentum.
Pros: Long playback without recharge. Pairs easy with android Samsung S9+. Stays connected with bluetooth signal, very seldom does one or the other earpiece loose the bluetooth signal. Good range with that bluetooth signal, 50 ft or more. Not gigantic hanging out of the ears like some Bose that I've seen. Mirrors Crutchfield's review of the product pretty well.
Cons: Not 10 hours on the ear without a recharge.
