Control how much surrounding noise you want with Ambient Aware. Quick Ambient Mode lets you hear traffic going by, listen in at the gym on others or hear the co-worker talk. A few people have mentioned that they could hear too much with the Ambient Mode setting. This setting also only works with both ear buds in at the same time.

A few did mention that the style is bulky, but it really depends on what you are looking for. These are just ear buds, nothing else but an ear bud and they look different than the Air pods so it may just be that you need to get used to them.
Water-resistant and sweat-resistant but be careful not to get stuck in a downpour of a storm. The water-resistant rating is IPX2 for these earbuds, which not the highest rating but they will withhold some water and sweat. It definitely includes a technology that ensures sweat-resistant for those long runs or workouts.
Ease of Use
Unfortunately you cannot store music on these, which was a downside for some if you don't have a phone, table or computer near by. Basically they do not have any internal storage. But overall the ease of use is very simple and easy given that they connect to all devices and Android and Apple users. They are very easy to pair as soon as you open up the case. The compact case is another positive feature when it comes to ease of use, the case will fit into a pocket and can be very easy to take on the go.
The wireless charging case also lights up so you can see the progress of the charge and how much battery life the earbuds have.
There were also some used options available online if you decide you want to grab them at under $100. It could be a good option if you are on a budget.

If you are planning to use these to make phone calls all day you might want to reconsider because the microphone is not great. They are fine for a quick phone call here and there but not for constant phone calls. The bass and the music are definitely top quality. Many have mentioned the Samsung Galaxy Buds being the most under rated since there is not a lot of hype around them, but between the sound quality, battery life and decent price or the technology people should start paying more attention to this product.
