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.

I have the Tranya T3 and B530 that I use for the gym and train commuting. They are not flawless but for the price they provide an excellent value, base response, and isolation.

From what I've heard the bass always suffers on iEMs - wireless or wired?
What's everyone thoughts?

Love my family, love audio, have a thing for fizzy sweets.

I have found bass in earbuds can be very dependent on 1) how deep they enter the ear canal and 2) the foam/tips ability to firmly hold them in place.
I have the Cambridge Audio Melomania 1's. The included foam tips gave better bass than the included silicon tips. I purchased Comply T-5 tips and they were even better and more comfortable. However, after a few weeks, their effectiveness decreased and the earbuds don't generally stay in place very well.

May 2020 update: home is sold, 9.1.4 HT is in storage! Surviving lockdown with Sennheiser HD 58X & Sony WH1000-XM3 & JDS Labs Atom headphones/amp
HT gear: Denon X4400H; Klipsch RP; SVS PC-4000; Buttkicker Advance.
Future upgrades: dual subs; room treatments; Monolith 7x amp; DIY BOSS riser; MiniDSP; speaker upgrades (SVS?)
