My only experience with truly-wireless so far has been the Jaybird Run [see partial unboxing].

As you can see in our Black Friday 2019 round-up, truly wireless is the hottest consumer-advertised segment in the headphones market. Make sense since this is the newest sub-genre and many people have zero ~ as opposed to wired or ANC and/or bluetooth that has been around much longer…

Starting at 3:55pm eastern today [Monday 9/2/19] there is going to be a lightning deal on the Amazon Gold Box for this Sony WH RF400R bundle that includes the transmitter dock (TMRRF400) and cables/adapters. The price before the sale is $97. This is a marketplace seller offering it, with the order fulfilled by Amazon. They are the only ones offering this kit for sale, so they will almost certainly be the ones offering the lightning deal…

The above two are different models from the first headphone I “awarded” with the prestigious “Headphones to Avoid” award, the Sony RF-995-RK wireless… I haven’t seen or used the above two, so I can’t compare them…
