I have collected quite a few Earbud sets, some wired and some bluetooth, but this is the first set of this kind…earbuds with a short wire and no headband.
The Wanderlust QY8 Bluetooth headset came packaged in a small brown box with no markings other than a barcode sticker with the product name. Inside the box were:
- The headphones
- a charging cable
- replacement rubber buds (2 sizes)
- replacement ear stays
- small instruction card (fairly well written English)
I was impressed with how the earbuds fit in my ears. I was worried at first as the earbuds are attached to rather large bases, but the ear stays help to hold it comfortably, but firmly in your ear. They paired quickly with my iPhone 5s. The sound from the earbuds is not the best. The sound is muffled and suffers from a lack of bass. The vocals are a bit muddy. I would not use these for everyday listening if sound quality is what you are after. They are perfect for a run. The sound would be better than the street sounds.
They are Bluetooth V 4.1 and can place, receive, start and end calls. The microphone is found on the right earbud with the control button. For a full list of features, see below.

I would recommend these as a gym companion because they are more easily transported than a larger full headphone set and they stay connected even with your phone in your pocket (I did not notice any drop when my arms crossed the path of the phone to headset as I have with other bluetooth headphones.
I received this set at a discount for my honest review and evaluation.
