The fit is good.
I tested it by connecting it to a Cayin N6II/E02 with SBC.
I don't know because I haven't been in crowds, but it is stable in the home. Distance tolerance is excellent, and the connection is seamless and intact even at a distance of about 5 meters. We were able to listen to music consistently with no loss of communication, even across obstructions.
There may be a small amount of background noise, but most people probably won't notice it.
The operating interface is a touch type.

Sound quality description
The following review was tested on a FiiO M15 with a SBC connection.
The Lenovo thinkplus LP40 Pro has a full midrange sound.
Please see here for detailed reviews on sound quality.
Lows / Bass
Many inner-ear models do not have much low-frequency range, and the LP40 Pro is no different.
Low frequencies can hardly be heard well below, so if you want to hear low frequencies, it is recommended to use a canal type.
If you really want to hear low frequencies with an inner-ear type, you should buy QCY T20.
The LP40 Pro's midrange is bright and forward. It sounds good visually, but the sound image is expansive and lacks tightness, and separation is not good.
Structurally, staging is emphasized, with a backward tilt that accentuates a sense of depth around vocals. Vocals are heard with a fairly large image, but articulation is not very good.
Acoustic guitars and brass sound blotchy with blatantly muddy edges. You will get the impression that the separation is quite poor.
Highs / Treble
The highs lack too much energy relative to the mids, but the structure itself is relatively smooth.
The highrange lacks luminance relative to the brightness of the midrange, causing sound details to sound fuzzy and hard to hear. Not good.
Sound quality general comment
The Lenovo thinkplus LP40 Pro has a sound structure that leans toward the midrange with a narrow range, which is typical for an inner-ear type.
Basically, it is not a product for audiophiles.
