They have earhooks and are more of the stubby/shallow-insertion kind… But not like their older versions that did not attempt to create a seal on the ear (they have a “speaker protrusion” into the ear; they are useful like that in some situations).

Props to Motorola for using a product name that is close to its functionality (“loop” vs truly-wireless).

Tuesday: necklace-style bluetooth earphone offers

A couple of budget necklace-style bluetooth earphone offers is the theme among the daily deals for Tuesday May 18 in 2021 as follows:

+ at the Meh deal du jour you can get a 2-pack of iFrogz Sound Hub XD2 dual-driver necklace-style bluetooth earphones for $10 total plus shipping (unless you are a paying Meh-member in which case shipping is free)…

+ almost every day there’s some kind of a headphone offer at the NewEgg dailies but most of the times it is consumer tier some kind of a bluetooth, such as today, where you can get the Anker Soundcore Spirit 2 necklace-style bluetooth earphones for $17 after using the limited time promo code shown over there

+ what I call “necklace-style” (as opposed to neckband) are bluetooth earphones whose cable is an open loop (that ends at the two earpieces) and you hear them hanging on your neck like a necklace [you can of course also wear them reverse-baseball-cap style, with the “necklace” being on your back instead of your chest]

On a contemporaneous note, Tuesday 5/18/21 is Google I/0 2021 day where there might be some audio related Google announcements. You can watch the livestream/repeat YouTube-embedded below…

Speaking of announcements, this week has developed a bit of a free “HD music” subscription upgrade with both Apple and Amazon offering “HD Music” at the same price as their standard ($10/month) music subscription. It will be interesting to see if Google “price matches” this with a Google I/O announcement. Google Play Music is of course dead, and out of its ashes came YouTube Music/Premium/whatever-they-call-it-these-days.

Tuesday: 4-pack of Xtreme Sound Sidekicks bluetooth earphones for $10 + S&H

Necklace-style bluetooth earphones by the pound/kilo is the theme of the day for the smoking hot [ha!] Meh daily deal for April 20 in 2021, good until 11:59pm ET or earlier if sold out: it is a 4-pack of Xtreme Sound Sidekicks going for $10 total. Shipping is extra unless you are a paying Meh-member.

This is model XTR3M3-T34M for those who have photographic memory 🙂

PS: the “$1.25 per bud” you see over there is an attempt at humor since each earphone consists of two earbuds. No doubt this may confuse some Meh shoppers 🙂

Thursday: Klipsch R5 Active bluetooth IEMs for $20 w/FS

Once upon a time an IEMophile’s mortal enemy, now they kinda forgot about them [= Klipsch IEMs] because they are buried in mountains of new Chi-Fi IEMs 😉

Good until Thursday 4/15/21 at 11:59pm ET [or earlier if sold out] one of them B&H Photo daily deals are the new condition Klipsch R5 Active bluetooth earphones, necklace-style [meaning just a cable, no neckband], going for $20 with free US shipping…

Etymotic ER2-SE studio edition IEMs for $79

IEM fans, for a limited time, Amazon actual is having a sale on the new condition Etymotic ER2-SE studio edition IEMs going for the very specific price of $78.86 with free US shipping.

This is not a lightning deal, so it’s either an “organic” sale” or some kind of a price match and such.

As of the time of writing these average 4.2 out of 5 based on 69 customer ratings. They have the characteristic triple flange (plus other eartip options) and the cable is detachable.

I haven’t seen or touched them yet, so I have no personal opinion.

Saturday: 2pk JVC Xtreme Xplosives Deep Bass bluetooth earphones for $20 + S&H

We have an early start of the Saturday daily deals at the Meh website where their deal du jour is a 2-pack of JVC Xtreme Xplosives Deep Bass necklace-style bluetooth earphones going for $20 total plus shipping (unless you are a paying Meh-member).

At the risk of sounding like a master of the obvious, the product name slightly hints that these are might just be bassy, very bassy, extremely bassy, explosively bassy. I personally haven’t seen or heard them or read about them, so I cannot comment 🙂
