As a previous owner of the iconx, just like the other posters have stated, I would leave it off. I found that it reduced hearing. I have the 2019 galaxy buds now though which I do prefer.
I want to leave it off. It's annoying and I always seem to have sound issues! Doesn't leaving them off leave the internals of the buds exposed to sweat? I wear mine to run and they get sloppy when I run. I'm concerned that I'm going to ruin the buds by getting sweat directly in them.
Has anybody crossed this bridge?
