I'm interested to hear from actual Tarah Pro owners...Does the Tarah Pro have the connection issues that plagued the X3, X4 and Run models?

    That's a very vague question.... all I can say is I have had no problems pairing with my iphone 6s, laptop and tablet. Mind you I also never had any issues with my X2's....

    @Sam White? I've had 4 sets of X3's, all had the same poor connectivity, glitchy when wearing a jacket with a high collar, glitchy when training in the gym with arms overhead, glitchy when outside. Its well documented if you run a Google search and even look in the X3 section on here. The Run doesn't appear much better, they have issues with connection between the two earbuds also. Jaybirds advice is to use the headphones with your device in your right pocket, which is ridiculous, especially since I'm left handed.

    ?

    There are lots of tech reviews on YouTube which give positive reviews, but of course these are probably affiliated, so I'm after some real world opinions. I'd expect to be able to maintain connection as I move around the gym, even if I leave my phone a few metres away. The Bluetooth protocol is capable of it, so why aren't the headphones??

    A the beginning my Tarah Pro had connection issues but it seems to be working fine now. My biggest concern with the Tarah Pro is the charging cradle. There are no replacements available online. So if I lose the cradle, I have to buy a new pair again. 😥

    The bluetooth 5.0 protocol is backwards compatible and i found it also depending on the device you use as well. My x4's use to cut out and I always tried to have my device inline with the bt sensor. The Tarah Pros are very stable. I've not had any connection issues.

    Ive played around with magnetic off/on feature and once you clip the guds together it turns off sound amazingly, however once detached you have to wait a moment for music to activate again.

    Yeah I’m dealing with a problem right now where my right headphone isn’t working. Reset and all that to and didn’t do anything that could break them

    I had the X3s and would often experience momentary BT drop outs when running outside. Inside, drop outs would occur only short distances from the source when around a corner or behind a door.

     

    Fortunately, with the TPs I haven't experienced any dropouts in either setting. Connection seems to be rock-solid so far.

    The only time I had an issue was when I first tried running with them with just my Apple Watch - they kept going in and out for about 30 seconds. Eventually they stayed connected, and I've never had an issue after that.

    Ive used them now for a short period of time and not had ANY bt cut outs even at the office where ive used them with my mobile phone about 10 metres away to my desk where I realized I didnt have my device in my pocket and the connection didn't break at all. Crystal clear music was seamless. However, I have had issues with the x4's cutting in and out despite having my device on the right side, the same side as the bt sensor. The bt 5.0 protocol is reallly stable. But i think it depends on your mobile phone as well. Make sure the bt sensor in your mobile/music device is not blocked as well.

    I'm sorry to report that Tarah Pro suffers from weak BT stability. My pair tends to suddenly disconnect (both from my iPhone and Lenovo laptop), randomly turn off, sometimes stops responding to button presses for a minute or so. It also takes around 3 seconds to connect to the iPhone when turned on. In contrast, the original Jaybirds I used to own for around 3 years (was it called the X1?) worked like a charm under all conditions.

     

    The good news, though, is that the hardware of Tarah Pro seems to be very well made, and if the software team releases a quality firmware upgrade, some of these issues should be resolved. Hopefully. That's why I am visiting these forums right now - to see if there is a firmware update released in December.
