I dug up an old set of xiaomi qcy qy12 (didn't know it was xiaomi too until I checked this morning, still had a charge from summer maybe?) and they only sound ok, and are a little uncomfortable(because they are big squares) and a real pain to charge.
I do like how they turn on when you seperate them and automatically pair to my phone, then turn off when you connect the magnets again.
My main qualms with them are the comfort and sound. Pairing isn't an issue, and I prefer physical audio isolation for earbuds. Wondering if you had a suggestion since you have an open perspective to particular uses and seem to have shopped around a bit.
They have a decent audio quality, but they are not fully sound isolation if all you are into is hearing audio.
They are to use as an every day wireless set.
Meaning you can walk around with them, listening to music, using as headset, and you can mute and hear people talking around you or to you, without needing to take them off. You might look a little douchy still wearing them, but you can have a full conversation without needing to take them off.
And with the internal chip, if you put down your phone and switch to an ipad or a macbook, can you switch the airpods to them without any re-pairing requirement and use them on those. When done, back to the phone.
They are relatively small, but they sit well enough in the ear for the majority of people without falling off, and they are comfortable (that is though very subjective).
If your plan is isolation and audio quality, they are not for you, in my opinion.
Though apple are rumoured to use beats brand to bring similar wireless headset specifically for sport with isolation next month.
