Thank you for the detail, and yes. I agree with your observation based on some testing. In fact I find the ambient sound to be the opposite of what is expected using the Wyze Buds black. When I turn the ambient sound on the sound is more muted than when ambient is off. Tested on Android
I also have the Wyze Buds Limited edition (on an iPhone) and the ambient sound mode amplifies the sound around me but its pretty minimal.
I did also tested both against against the Wyze Buds Pro and the transparency mode is much more evident (same as ambient sound on the wyze buds LE or black versions) tested on an iPhone as well.
Lastly I tested a competing device to the Wyze Buds Pro and the passthrough feature it has and the capability is much more noticeable and has a volume control that is very evident when changing -/+.
The device i am referring to would not be a comparable device to the Wyze Buds.
Good call out, possible we will see some updates in the future for the Wyze devices and I will watch the beta and wishlist channels for movement.
Thank you for your input to the thread!
