Any Bass on any wireless earbuds?

I have tried a JLabs wireless earbud and though it feels and works fine there is no bass to speak of; even with their digital enhancements turned on and the iPhone bass booster turned on. Are there any earbuds that have some bass? I know that my eight year old 1.5" wired headphones which have the circular around the ear hook have bass. However, I can't find any of these because they have all been obsoleted, as far as I can tell, by the ear bud style.

Try something from SoundPeats like the TrueEngine SE. Using memory foam tips also helps with the seal in your ear and enhance the bass a bit.

The Powerbeats sound pretty good and they are currently clearing them out at BestBuy now that the new ones are out. I bought a set for the gym and am pretty happy with them https://www.bestbuy.com/site/beats-b...?skuId=5577821

Forgot to add they have the ear hook you are used to and come with multiple sizes of tips to help you get a good seal.

After more efforts trying to get my JLab's to sound right I gave up and ordered a pair of Besign SHO3s from Amazon. They are similar to the on the ear foam covered ones I mentioned earlier. A fuller sound I'm hoping and more comfortable for me. Cheap too at only $25. One question. They are 4.1 Bluetooth, not 5.0. What do I lose in the .9 difference?

Hope this answers your question about the Bluetooth versions. https://www.amarinfotech.com/wp-cont...-Bluetooth.jpg
How do you like your Besign SHO3's? I'm looking for earphones/buds for the gym that have some bass but are not too expensive.

I sent them back as they are not what I thought they were. I thought they were the kind where you looped the stem over your ear foe a secure fit. In fact the stem loop is like a vertical springed connector between the two speakers. It squeezes the phones to your ears and is very uncomfortable. No thanks.

Fair enough. I think I'm going to go with one of the Sennheiser wireless earbuds. They were always good for for the sound quality.
