Roy-86, 28 Oct 2017Thanks for the information. Basically 10 hours total. Sony ... moreAnd how is the WF-1000? I stayed away from the WF-1000 because it was true the disconnection to the right ear unit happened 5 times while I was just testing. The 3-hour per use charge was lacking as well. No, I will not spend $200 for something that is not working right.

So I waited and got the IconX 2018. Each ear unit has 82 mAh, and the case has 340 mAh. Doing the math with say 30% power transfer loss, it should charge about twice full charges. I don't know why Samsung only is advertising only 1 full charge. I can say they do last about 4.5 hours before you get a voice prompt telling you you have only 10% left. So their claim of 5 hours of streaming playback via Bluetooth is real. It takes some 1:40H to fully charge from 0%.

Sound quality is superb and loud with good base for $170. Well worth the price!

The best part is, the IconX has 3.4GB for audio tracks. I count some 300+ songs. And absolutely NO lag in audio for video, nor audio signal disconnection. Passive sound isolation is good but I'm replacing the ear tips with memory foam I just ordered. Ambient sound is good enough so you can hear without having to remove the units.

Old 1.5 time

I couldn't find anywhere that how many times the case can charge the earbuds.
That's a very important information for me.
WRT battery life airpods are the best so far. But i returned them as it doesn't fit well. I should be getting the wf 1000x today but the battery life is a compromise. Gear ICON x has great battery life as per spec sheet but only thing I need to know is the case charging info.
