My kids have asked for Raycon wireless earbuds for Christmas. I've never heard of this brand. They are cheaper than Apple Airbuds is about all I know. Anyone have any first hand experience with this brand? Thoughts?

I have the E55s and I mostly like them for their fit. They aren't superior in any other way and your kids are pumped about them because of the concentrated marketing blitz on social media. They also lay flat so they look good in selfies. Some styles are just as expensive as AirPods. The sound quality is good, but nothing spectacular. If your kids enjoy a thumping bass then they'll probably like them. They charge quickly and the battery lasts a good five to six hours.
I have the colorful E70s and I enjoy them. Most people who complain about this type, do so because they aren't great for making and accepting calls. I only use mine for music and I'm happy with them. I got mine as a gift though; I had no idea that they could be costly. I have to say that they do make a great gift. Their packaging is nice. It makes you feel like you're opening up something special.
My brother has a pair, and he really likes them. I've seen lots of ads for them, and a lot of YouTubers have had their videos sponsored by Raycon. But I'm skeptical of them, especially because there are other alternatives on the market that aren't as expensive.
We actually bought them and so far they are good. They actually aren't as expensive as some of the other brands out there. My kids are kind of tough on things but these have held up. It's only been a couple of months though.
I've read that these earbuds may be suitable for exercising since it is lightweight and also sweat-resistance. However, it has its inconvenience because you'll have to make an effort to press the buttons just to change the volume. There'd be no problem if your kids are fine with that though.
