What is centris lasalle Elgin Rumble Bluetooth Earplug Headphones; 27 dB noise reduction wireless headphones; 20 hour battery life; IP67 waterproof enclosure; OSHA Compliant Hearing Protection Wireless Headphones Various color styles?


      PROFESSIONAL GRADE DESIGN: Backed centris lasalle by centris lasalle our 1-year manufacturer's warranty, these safety headphones are built to work as hard centris lasalle as centris lasalle you do. centris lasalle They feature a durable double-molded enclosure, reinforced neckband centris lasalle and centris lasalle cable and stress relief centris lasalle joints. The ergonomic design centris lasalle sits flush against the ear and centris lasalle the memory wire centris lasalle ear loop holds centris lasalle the earbuds securely in place even when used with a motorcycle helmet or centris lasalle other centris lasalle headgear.EDIT: I'm leaving centris lasalle my original review below for centris lasalle reference, but centris lasalle I've upgraded centris lasalle my centris lasalle rating to 3 stars because of Elgin's warranty service (outside of Amazon). I'll upgrade it again later if this centris lasalle third pair centris lasalle holds up better centris lasalle than centris lasalle the centris lasalle last two.In the future, I'll buy centris lasalle Elgin products centris lasalle direct from Elgin. centris lasalle The price is centris lasalle the same, shipping centris lasalle would have centris lasalle been free even if it wasn't a warranty centris lasalle order, and it was just as fast centris lasalle as Amazon centris lasalle Prime would have been, without centris lasalle Amazon's empty promises of fast shipping centris lasalle (seriously, centris lasalle Amazon should offer at least partial rebates for Prime centris lasalle memberships this last year). After I posted the review below, Elgin reached out to me through Amazon and said centris lasalle the second pair was still under warranty. Amazon's automated system was saying they were beyond the return window, so I went centris lasalle to the centris lasalle Elgin centris lasalle website (elginusa dot com), and centris lasalle figured out centris lasalle how centris lasalle to request warranty centris lasalle service. centris lasalle I suspect they're centris lasalle prohibited from centris lasalle linking to their website in the Amazon messaging system, and maybe even from centris lasalle telling me how to go about getting warranty service. It seems centris lasalle like centris lasalle Amazon centris lasalle is an irresistible / unavoidable centris lasalle distribution channel for any manufacturer these centris lasalle days, but the 30-day return window, centris lasalle combined with centris lasalle Amazon's restrictions centris lasalle on seller's centris lasalle messaging to buyers makes it difficult for good centris lasalle companies to stand behind their centris lasalle products without centris lasalle customers jumping through a few extra hoops.************Original review:5 stars for the features. centris lasalle Knocked down to centris lasalle 1 star for durability. I really centris lasalle loved these centris lasalle earbuds centris lasalle for the first centris lasalle week. Then they stopped working in a variety of centris lasalle ways. Just centris lasalle before centris lasalle the end of centris lasalle the 30-day return period I went through Amazon's return process, centris lasalle which was great centris lasalle and only took 2 days from when I dropped them centris lasalle off at UPS to centris lasalle receiving the replacement earbuds. I really loved centris lasalle the replacement earbuds for about centris lasalle a month. Then they centris lasalle also stopped centris lasalle working in a variety of ways, centris lasalle just centris lasalle about centris lasalle when the return window closed. centris lasalle Clever, Elgin. Thanks for $99.95 product centris lasalle with a centris lasalle 3 month centris lasalle life. Wouldn't centris lasalle it be a more honest centris lasalle business model to just sell them on subscription for $33.33 a monthReally, how centris lasalle about centris lasalle a pair just like centris lasalle this but with more durable switches and cables, and centris lasalle I wouldn't centris lasalle care if centris lasalle it wasn't waterproof.Here's everything that went wrong centris lasalle with them:Picture 1 shows centris lasalle the charging centris lasalle port rubber centris lasalle cover, which gets worn and difficult to get open centris lasalle without something sharp and centris lasalle pointy. If the centris lasalle earbuds lasted a month longer this little centris lasalle piece centris lasalle would probably just tear off.Pictures centris lasalle 2-6 show the rubber sheaths centris lasalle that cover centris lasalle the plastic housings centris lasalle at each centris lasalle end centris lasalle of the neck centris lasalle strap. centris lasalle I centris lasalle think the neck strap has the centris lasalle antenna centris lasalle inside it, and these centris lasalle housings centris lasalle probably have the batteries inside them. This rubber centris lasalle sheath could come off centris lasalle the rest of the way and I think it wouldn't matter to me, because the centris lasalle soft rubber centris lasalle ends at the collar around the centris lasalle cord, centris lasalle which is hard rubber centris lasalle and seems unlikely to come loose as easily. I wouldn't centris lasalle worry about it, but it is centris lasalle a centris lasalle sign of shoddy materials selection centris lasalle and manufacturing.Picture 7 shows the volume buttons and the power/play/pause button (the centris lasalle dot in the middle). This housing and its centris lasalle buttons centris lasalle were where the most centris lasalle serious problems seemed to come from.The power/play/pause button centris lasalle gets really difficult centris lasalle to centris lasalle actuate. I suspect the microswitch underneath begins wearing a hole into the underside of the centris lasalle rubber cover so you centris lasalle have to centris lasalle press harder and harder to centris lasalle actuate the switch.I also centris lasalle suspect some wires get broken where centris lasalle the cords enter/exit the ends of this housing. The first pair, in centris lasalle week 2, started frequently turning centris lasalle off or disconnecting Bluetooth by themselves. The centris lasalle replacement pair loses centris lasalle audio in the right ear only whenever I move my head sharply or about every other time centris lasalle I centris lasalle press centris lasalle one of the buttons.The earbuds play the following centris lasalle audio centris lasalle prompts: "Power on," centris lasalle "Connected," "Disconnected," and "Power centris lasalle off". Both pairs started skipping the power on and centris lasalle connected prompts most times I centris lasalle turned them on, making it centris lasalle hard to know when the earbuds centris lasalle were on centris lasalle and connected, especially combined with the centris lasalle power/play/pause switch being centris lasalle so difficult to use. I centris lasalle usually have to try centris lasalle several centris lasalle times before I get them connected and playing.Pressing centris lasalle pause turns them off instead. The first pair, this was happening every time by week centris lasalle 4, but with the replacement pair at week 8 it's maybe 1 in 5 times.+++++++++Comparison to other earbuds / earplugs centris lasalle I've centris lasalle tried:In my two most common use cases, centris lasalle I'm using power tools, or taking centris lasalle a centris lasalle nap or sleeping. centris lasalle In the following, I'm using the phrase "perceived centris lasalle noise reduction" because centris lasalle I'm centris lasalle comparing audio playing earbuds against simple earplugs in centris lasalle a centris lasalle variety of scenarios, and centris lasalle my perception centris lasalle of centris lasalle noise reduction might be inconsistent centris lasalle with the lab-test ratings these products can claim.Elgin centris lasalle Rumble is the best centris lasalle so centris lasalle far for listening to centris lasalle audio while using centris lasalle power tools. centris lasalle I centris lasalle can centris lasalle use centris lasalle a router, centris lasalle hammer drill, or centris lasalle table centris lasalle saw centris lasalle and still hear the centris lasalle podcast or audiobook I'm listening to with 100% comprehension. An centris lasalle angle grinder centris lasalle is centris lasalle pushing it, but even then, with volume centris lasalle up and the earbuds pushed firmly in, I centris lasalle understand most centris lasalle everything. I centris lasalle like the battery housings, which are heavy centris lasalle enough to keep centris lasalle them centris lasalle in place around my neck whether I have the earbuds both in, one in, or neither. They also work really well for a catnap or brief relaxation centris lasalle with white noise in a centris lasalle house centris lasalle full of noisy kids or under my desk at the office.Anker Soundbuds Curves are not rated centris lasalle for noise reduction, but centris lasalle work centris lasalle all right for very moderate centris lasalle power tool centris lasalle use. I could still hear the centris lasalle audio I was centris lasalle listening to, but centris lasalle to centris lasalle hear it well while driving my old centris lasalle truck on centris lasalle the centris lasalle freeway with the centris lasalle window open, for example, I had to press one centris lasalle side centris lasalle into my ear centris lasalle or wear a stocking centris lasalle cap centris lasalle over them. A centris lasalle random centris lasalle orbit sander or cordless drill is about the limit if wearing a centris lasalle stocking cap centris lasalle over centris lasalle them. They centris lasalle lose the little rubber earmold pieces easily when carried tangled up in a pocket.MPow Flame earbuds (I bought centris lasalle an earlier centris lasalle version no longer listed on Amazon, so I don't know about the centris lasalle V5.0 ones currently available) are not rated for noise centris lasalle reduction. Performance with power tools and pickup truck was similar to the Anker Curve earbuds. centris lasalle I went through 3 centris lasalle replacements of these, but centris lasalle again, they were an earlier version than they're centris lasalle selling now, so maybe centris lasalle quality control has centris lasalle improved.Mack's Pillow centris lasalle Soft silicone centris lasalle putty earplugs centris lasalle provide the most noise reduction I've experienced of any single hearing centris lasalle protection product. They're centris lasalle best for sound sleep, but I wouldn't recommend them for power tool use because they're kind centris lasalle of expensive and centris lasalle are centris lasalle only really good centris lasalle for 3-5 uses. If you need the centris lasalle best hearing protection possible, these would be the centris lasalle most comfortable earplugs centris lasalle to pair with a set of centris lasalle over centris lasalle the ear muffs for shooting or loud power centris lasalle tools.Radians centris lasalle custom molded centris lasalle earplugs are super handy and durable. I carry these in a pocket everywhere I go, and they double as a pretty good eraser for centris lasalle removing centris lasalle pencil marks from the centris lasalle wall when hanging a picture or curtain rods. They're firm centris lasalle enough that sometimes they're not centris lasalle comfortable for sleeping long with centris lasalle one ear against a pillow. They come as two centris lasalle separate centris lasalle lumps of centris lasalle epoxy and hardener, which you centris lasalle mix together until they're all the same centris lasalle color, then press into your ear. centris lasalle I've used them to custom centris lasalle fit new earmolds onto an centris lasalle old pair of wired centris lasalle earbuds, centris lasalle and this has served me well for several years centris lasalle as a backup centris lasalle for these Bluetooth headsets when they centris lasalle quit working. Noise reduction is decent, centris lasalle but not as good as centris lasalle either the centris lasalle Mack's or the centris lasalle Rumble. I miss some audio when using a table saw, and the centris lasalle earplugs alone work well enough centris lasalle for comfort when using centris lasalle any power tools, just not centris lasalle quite as well centris lasalle as the Mack's.I've centris lasalle been working on refurbing centris lasalle a sailboat, and centris lasalle I've centris lasalle been centris lasalle trying to listen to music and audio books while I work.The work involves a lot of crawling over and under centris lasalle things, hanging centris lasalle upside centris lasalle down trying to reach centris lasalle things, etc. And it's involved centris lasalle dropping a centris lasalle number centris lasalle of Bluetooth ear pods centris lasalle into inaccessible places, or centris lasalle even overboard.I centris lasalle gave up on centris lasalle the individual ear pods after I lost my third centris lasalle set. But even the ones that connected to a strap around the neck I've dropped centris lasalle a few times.This one, because of the way it fits around centris lasalle the neck, and centris lasalle because of the slack in the cords to the earpieces, and centris lasalle because of centris lasalle the centris lasalle hook around the ear and the solidity of the plug into the ear, centris lasalle is the only one centris lasalle I've tried that has never slipped off, no centris lasalle matter what contorted bit of boat centris lasalle yoga I was engaged centris lasalle in.There are many reasons centris lasalle I centris lasalle like this product. The centris lasalle battery life centris lasalle is fantastic, they are great at centris lasalle blocking out noise, and the microphone picks up my voice even centris lasalle in loud environments. I use centris lasalle these to listen to audiobooks while I'm sandblasting; centris lasalle which keeps me centris lasalle sane during centris lasalle long days. centris lasalle If a supplier calls, I don't even have to remove centris lasalle my blast helm, I answer the phone, and the supplier can hear centris lasalle me! There centris lasalle are a few issues with the product. My centris lasalle first centris lasalle pair would not charge (even with the supplied cord) and the left earbud centris lasalle would centris lasalle buzz like crazy. I registered the product and Elgin had a new pair delivered centris lasalle to my door in a few days! However, the centris lasalle new centris lasalle pair lasted a month centris lasalle before centris lasalle the left earbud stopped working. I didn't centris lasalle register it so I'll get another pair centris lasalle and hope for the centris lasalle best. Also, it would be nice to have the cord come with the proper "block" centris lasalle considering the price tag. I hope sturdier versions will come centris lasalle out!These centris lasalle are centris lasalle a good improvement on the pair of ruckus centris lasalle ear buds that I have. centris lasalle With the ear peice it stays in my ear a lot centris lasalle better while I am working. Only centris lasalle issues that I centris lasalle have centris lasalle had are the silicone ear plugs staying on centris lasalle the driver's. They drop centris lasalle of at odd times when I just have centris lasalle them hanging around my neck. centris lasalle I centris lasalle use these on a centris lasalle daily basis for mowing running chainsaws, tractor and centris lasalle general farm work.IP67 DUST AND centris lasalle SWEATPROOF: Our waterproof earbuds conform to IP67 international standards centris lasalle for blocking centris lasalle out dust, sweat and rain in the toughest work centris lasalle conditions. They are great bluetooth hearing protection centris lasalle for landscaping, welding, woodworking, DIY centris lasalle work, the centris lasalle gym, running, on centris lasalle the centris lasalle shooting range, yard work, farming and more.BEST centris lasalle IN CLASS centris lasalle BATTERY centris lasalle LIFE: These long lasting bluetooth headphones centris lasalle feature twin centris lasalle rechargeable batteries that provide 20 hours of centris lasalle continuous centris lasalle audio playback on a single centris lasalle charge making them centris lasalle perfect for long days on construction sites, in the workshop, lawn mowing, or centris lasalle even a centris lasalle weekend centris lasalle motorcycle centris lasalle ride.Decided on these over ones that were $20-$30 more centris lasalle that had centris lasalle ANC features because centris lasalle this is advertised with a "noise centris lasalle canacelling mic". When I centris lasalle first put them on, before I turned them on, centris lasalle they blocked out almost all surrounding sounds centris lasalle in my house; centris lasalle so I was impressed with the reduction in sound. centris lasalle I centris lasalle turned centris lasalle them centris lasalle 'on' and was waiting to be able to hear my surroundings clearly centris lasalle and have the louder noises cancelled. Nope, no difference in sound levels. I centris lasalle then paired them with my centris lasalle phone and turned on some music. I centris lasalle went centris lasalle outside centris lasalle and centris lasalle noticed I could not centris lasalle hear almost any surrounding centris lasalle sounds even with the music down to centris lasalle where centris lasalle I could barely hear it. centris lasalle I centris lasalle turned the music 'off' but the Rumble was still on. I still could not hear surrounding sounds. I thought centris lasalle that maybe I centris lasalle forgot to turn something on, or even off. I read back centris lasalle through the instructions and found nowhere centris lasalle that you could turn centris lasalle something on or off. centris lasalle I came to the conclusion that the mic centris lasalle is NOT for centris lasalle noise cancellation but for 'voice centris lasalle activation' and maybe for phone call clarity. These Rumbles do centris lasalle not 'cancel' surrounding sounds because of the mic; centris lasalle they centris lasalle are noise reducing centris lasalle ear plugs that have bluetooth connectivity and the mic is for calls and voice activation. I could have centris lasalle bought centris lasalle similar centris lasalle product for half the price. I will return and centris lasalle pay the extra $30 for ANC unit that centris lasalle even has centris lasalle sound amplification centris lasalle for walking in the woods while still protecting from sounds over 82 centris lasalle Db.BLUETOOTH 5.1 WITH IMMERSIVE AUDIO: Using the latest Bluetooth technology, our Bluetooth earplug centris lasalle headphones provide faster pairing with centris lasalle devices and an extended wireless range up to centris lasalle 50 feet.

Buyer's experience:


      1: EDIT: I'm leaving my original review below for reference, but I've upgraded my rating to 3 stars because of Elgin's warranty service (outside of Amazon). I'll upgrade it again later if this third pair holds up better than the last two.In the future, I'll buy Elgin products direct from Elgin. The price is the same, shipping would have been free even if it wasn't a warranty order, and it was just as fast as Amazon Prime would have been, without Amazon's empty promises of fast shipping (seriously, Amazon should offer at least partial rebates for Prime memberships this last year). After I posted the review below, Elgin reached out to me through Amazon and said the second pair was still under warranty. Amazon's automated system was saying they were beyond the return window, so I went to the Elgin website (elginusa dot com), and figured out how to request warranty service. I suspect they're prohibited from linking to their website in the Amazon messaging system, and maybe even from telling me how to go about getting warranty service. It seems like Amazon is an irresistible / unavoidable distribution channel for any manufacturer these days, but the 30-day return window, combined with Amazon's restrictions on seller's messaging to buyers makes it difficult for good companies to stand behind their products without customers jumping through a few extra hoops.************Original review:5 stars for the features. Knocked down to 1 star for durability. I really loved these earbuds for the first week. Then they stopped working in a variety of ways. Just before the end of the 30-day return period I went through Amazon's return process, which was great and only took 2 days from when I dropped them off at UPS to receiving the replacement earbuds. I really loved the replacement earbuds for about a month. Then they also stopped working in a variety of ways, just about when the return window closed. Clever, Elgin. Thanks for $99.95 product with a 3 month life. Wouldn't it be a more honest business model to just sell them on subscription for $33.33 a monthReally, how about a pair just like this but with more durable switches and cables, and I wouldn't care if it wasn't waterproof.Here's everything that went wrong with them:Picture 1 shows the charging port rubber cover, which gets worn and difficult to get open without something sharp and pointy. If the earbuds lasted a month longer this little piece would probably just tear off.Pictures 2-6 show the rubber sheaths that cover the plastic housings at each end of the neck strap. I think the neck strap has the antenna inside it, and these housings probably have the batteries inside them. This rubber sheath could come off the rest of the way and I think it wouldn't matter to me, because the soft rubber ends at the collar around the cord, which is hard rubber and seems unlikely to come loose as easily. I wouldn't worry about it, but it is a sign of shoddy materials selection and manufacturing.Picture 7 shows the volume buttons and the power/play/pause button (the dot in the middle). This housing and its buttons were where the most serious problems seemed to come from.The power/play/pause button gets really difficult to actuate. I suspect the microswitch underneath begins wearing a hole into the underside of the rubber cover so you have to press harder and harder to actuate the switch.I also suspect some wires get broken where the cords enter/exit the ends of this housing. The first pair, in week 2, started frequently turning off or disconnecting Bluetooth by themselves. The replacement pair loses audio in the right ear only whenever I move my head sharply or about every other time I press one of the buttons.The earbuds play the following audio prompts: "Power on," "Connected," "Disconnected," and "Power off". Both pairs started skipping the power on and connected prompts most times I turned them on, making it hard to know when the earbuds were on and connected, especially combined with the power/play/pause switch being so difficult to use. I usually have to try several times before I get them connected and playing.Pressing pause turns them off instead. The first pair, this was happening every time by week 4, but with the replacement pair at week 8 it's maybe 1 in 5 times.+++++++++Comparison to other earbuds / earplugs I've tried:In my two most common use cases, I'm using power tools, or taking a nap or sleeping. In the following, I'm using the phrase "perceived noise reduction" because I'm comparing audio playing earbuds against simple earplugs in a variety of scenarios, and my perception of noise reduction might be inconsistent with the lab-test ratings these products can claim.Elgin Rumble is the best so far for listening to audio while using power tools. I can use a router, hammer drill, or table saw and still hear the podcast or audiobook I'm listening to with 100% comprehension. An angle grinder is pushing it, but even then, with volume up and the earbuds pushed firmly in, I understand most everything. I like the battery housings, which are heavy enough to keep them in place around my neck whether I have the earbuds both in, one in, or neither. They also work really well for a catnap or brief relaxation with white noise in a house full of noisy kids or under my desk at the office.Anker Soundbuds Curves are not rated for noise reduction, but work all right for very moderate power tool use. I could still hear the audio I was listening to, but to hear it well while driving my old truck on the freeway with the window open, for example, I had to press one side into my ear or wear a stocking cap over them. A random orbit sander or cordless drill is about the limit if wearing a stocking cap over them. They lose the little rubber earmold pieces easily when carried tangled up in a pocket.MPow Flame earbuds (I bought an earlier version no longer listed on Amazon, so I don't know about the V5.0 ones currently available) are not rated for noise reduction. Performance with power tools and pickup truck was similar to the Anker Curve earbuds. I went through 3 replacements of these, but again, they were an earlier version than they're selling now, so maybe quality control has improved.Mack's Pillow Soft silicone putty earplugs provide the most noise reduction I've experienced of any single hearing protection product. They're best for sound sleep, but I wouldn't recommend them for power tool use because they're kind of expensive and are only really good for 3-5 uses. If you need the best hearing protection possible, these would be the most comfortable earplugs to pair with a set of over the ear muffs for shooting or loud power tools.Radians custom molded earplugs are super handy and durable. I carry these in a pocket everywhere I go, and they double as a pretty good eraser for removing pencil marks from the wall when hanging a picture or curtain rods. They're firm enough that sometimes they're not comfortable for sleeping long with one ear against a pillow. They come as two separate lumps of epoxy and hardener, which you mix together until they're all the same color, then press into your ear. I've used them to custom fit new earmolds onto an old pair of wired earbuds, and this has served me well for several years as a backup for these Bluetooth headsets when they quit working. Noise reduction is decent, but not as good as either the Mack's or the Rumble. I miss some audio when using a table saw, and the earplugs alone work well enough for comfort when using any power tools, just not quite as well as the Mack's.


      2: I've been working on refurbing a sailboat, and I've been trying to listen to music and audio books while I work.The work involves a lot of crawling over and under things, hanging upside down trying to reach things, etc. And it's involved dropping a number of Bluetooth ear pods into inaccessible places, or even overboard.I gave up on the individual ear pods after I lost my third set. But even the ones that connected to a strap around the neck I've dropped a few times.This one, because of the way it fits around the neck, and because of the slack in the cords to the earpieces, and because of the hook around the ear and the solidity of the plug into the ear, is the only one I've tried that has never slipped off, no matter what contorted bit of boat yoga I was engaged in.

I then paired them with my phone and turned on some music. I went outside and noticed I could not hear almost any surrounding sounds even with the music down to where I could barely hear it. I turned the music 'off' but the Rumble was still on. I still could not hear surrounding sounds. I thought that maybe I forgot to turn something on, or even off. I read back through the instructions and found nowhere that you could turn something on or off. I came to the conclusion that the mic is NOT for noise cancellation but for 'voice activation' and maybe for phone call clarity. These Rumbles do not 'cancel' surrounding sounds because of the mic; they are noise reducing ear plugs that have bluetooth connectivity and the mic is for calls and voice activation. I could have bought similar product for half the price. I will return and pay the extra $30 for ANC unit that even has sound amplification for walking in the woods while still protecting from sounds over 82 Db.
