Yes, no problem to get a good fit with multiple of ear tip sizes. Thanks to relative small housing and 45 nozzle design too. The bundled wingtips help to keep this IEM attached to my ears on light exercise and jogging. The neckband design helps as well. Wireless earphones is much better at sport compare to wired ones. As for native isolation, it is average as expected.

No need to disconnect and reconnect here. Convenient, right? Yes, phone call quality is excellent. Others can hear my voice loud and clear.
I am getting around 10 hours of non-stop music playback. All thanks to built-in 200mAh lithium battery. Surely more than enough for your daily sport activities. As usual, tests were done on average room sound level with ANC turned on. Battery life is longer with ANC turned off. For your information, it will mention battery life status through voice notification when power up. And there is battery indicator status on iOS and Android devices as well. Lastly, it requires less than 1 and a half hour to fully charge.

And press ANC mode to go back to your music. Nice feature, right? No need to remove earbuds at all.
Balanced sound signature is what you will get from Linner NC50 (slightly toward warm with perfect ear tips seal). Not too sharp for treble nor too much bass. All of them are well in controlled. Soundstage is decent as all the instruments placement can be hear clearly. And it has virtually no lag between video and audio through its Bluetooth connection.
