The WYZE Buds Pro arrived today and wanted to start a first impression thread.
I will be diving into these much deeper and comparing to Echo Buds Gen 2 and Samsung Galaxy Buds Plus but wanted to give a quick first impression. Sorry this may be all over the place but first impression, right?
So far my only complaint, the rubber tips (the largest ones) are not big enough for my ears, they don’t seal great. This could be because of the oval "speaker design vs round.

Pairing was quick and easy without the paper instructions and you will get instructions at setup in the app. I was instantly presented with a firmware update that took 4 minutes.
The case is pretty sleek but I can already tell the round design will offer some challenges removing the buds holding the oval shaped case in one hand keeping the lid open… but it will fit much nicer in a pocket that bulkier designs of other cases.
While I am not a huge fan of wireless buds that stick out of your ears similar to the apple design these are not too bad so far, sitting, I feel like activity will have a different result but we will see.
Sitting next to a fan toggling the ANC, you can tell the difference… not as good as the WYZE headphones but noticeable for sure, and ANC might be better if I got a tighter seal in my ears, per my only complaint.
The sound quality at first blush is really good, oddly quality is much better In transparency mode than ANC off. I felt like Transparency Mode and ANC On had the same sound quality.
THEY GET LOUD!!! So if you like loud you will like these.
I played with the BASS BOOST setting over and over again with some 90s Rap… I could not tell a difference on or off, but I am pleased with how the bass sounds on these. The highs are clear and crisp, the middles are low, and the bass is thumpy… just like “I” like it. V shaped EQ
No built in equalizer so you will need to use your music app EQ if you want to tweak more
And, then there is this… Coming Soon For Alexa? Sigh. That’s just because of personal preference though
Customizable touch controls are nice.
First 30 minutes with them… I really like them and the sounds quality is great. I honestly thought I would dislike the design very much in how they felt in my ear, even spot checked how they looked in the mirror and I don’t feel as silly as I thought I would with them poking outta my ears… more to come.
Oh, and for those that care… no “I backed sticker” or digital “I backed” boarder. No sticker at all in fact. But… it will show in your digital badge.
