    That's great, your Jabras even withstanding seawater. Yeah, the MTW2 sound pretty good when set up right, but they're far from analytical and ultimately more laidback than I would have liked from Sennheiser. With their $300 pricetag and use of the 7 mm drivers from the IE 800, I expected less of a mass-market sound signature out of the box. The overall true wireless execution and feature set still make them well worth it, thankfully. From a design standpoint, I think the Beats PowerBeats Pro make a lot of sense. I love over-ear designs for IEMs and don't see why more true wireless earphones shouldn't have them as well, especially those geared for an active lifestyle.

    EDIT: Turns out I was wrong an over-ear design would have made a difference, other than adding weight and slight discomfort. The low weight and memory foam work very well together — so far the earphones haven't wiggled loose at all whilst running. That includes several long runs as well as faster intervals. Also, because there are no wires to direct sweat to the ears, they tend to stay dry. Needless to say, I'm very happy with how they've performed so far and am now more optimistic towards their longevity. Should have gone true wireless sooner!

    I should also mention I no longer use any sound tuning. That was only needed with the original silicone tips.

    A couple of bottles of pinot grigio rosato, a bottle of white wine from Venice region (Garganega grape), a bottle of riesling from Rheingau region, and a bottle of Portuguese white wine from Minho region, which I drank and was bit... well nont to my liking, but still an interesting bottle of wine to experience.

    I decided to keep the 65" TV I got from Target, but my TV stand is from the 1990s:

    It can swivel in the middle, but that seems odd for a TV with feet at the ends, so I bought a table TV mount:

    Be extra cautious around the TV screen when putting those legs on. I cracked a new 65" last year putting those on. That was painful.

    I managed to get it done without breaking anything all by myself.
