Had to cut it short there. Tough to lift with “Coward of the County” and “Rhinestone Cowboy” as ambient gym music.

I have had these for over a year now and haven’t had any problems with them. I use them daily. They have even held up with my 14 yo using them. We have listened to everything from Coward of the County to Whitesnake to audiobooks. Lol! Have to charge them every two or three days.

I didn’t want to jump up in weight that much, but I couldn’t find the 50’s or 60’s. Now a month of not lifting - got to go clean out dead relative’s house. We fly out tomorrow.

This is actually more than I think I have ever used before. The difference between lifting with sub 300 T levels for years and going on TRT.

Finally back from PA.

Not terrible for a month off. The wireless earbuds I bought while I was in the States are magical for counter-acting the midday gym music. Great suggestion from @ChickenLittle . Thanks.

Good to see you’re back at it! Happy they’re working for you.
