I purchased Wyze Buds after returning a competitor’s BT earbuds which were advertised as having 7 hr battery life but in fact, died after 3-3.5 hrs of use. I use the buds on my desktop computer while watching streaming services such as Netflix and YouTube. The competitor indicated the 7 hr battery life was for music listening only.
I specifically asked Wyze Lifestyle on Amazon re the Wyze Buds battery life and was told
“Seven hours is the maximum playback time on a single charge. Actual playback time (Watching videos or listening to music) of the earbuds almost 6-7 hours”
So I purchased them and got them yesterday. I updated the firmware and charged them overnight. I then discovered when I went to use them this morning only the right bud was working on my desktop computer. I paired them to my iPhone8+ same thing. The left bud was completely dead. I put them in the case and tried again. No difference put the buds back in the case and paired them back to my desktop. Left bud started working again!
Then I began a battery test with a flat equalizer and Normal setting in the ANC. After 3.5 hrs I discovered the left channel was dead again but by this time I was getting the warning, the buds only had 20% charge left. During this battery test their volume was at 44%. I can not see how these earbuds would ever get anywhere near 6 hrs of battery life.
Update: The right earbud lasted for almost 6 hours before the battery died. However 6-7 hours to me means both buds are working not just the right one.
Am I missing something??
