The Orcas are sweat resistant, superlight (0.45 oz), Bluetooth 4.0 (no tangled messes) ear buds.  They have a built in microphone to answer calls when connected to your smartphone.  They also come with custom fit options – 3 sizes of earpads and 2 sizes of secure fit ear cushions.  The Orcas have approximately 6 hours of running time (I tested it to be around 5 hours and 47 minutes).

 

When running (and biking) with the Orcas, I preferred the wire to hang in front of my neck versus behind it. They felt more comfortable in this position. I did not use the secure fit “fins”. They fit perfectly out of the box. The ear buds stayed in the ear during fast paced downhill runs or any other high bounce activities (jumping on the home trampoline).  They are worth the money to avoid the no tangled messy wires.  In summary, great fit, comfortable, and in a lightweight and small form factor.
