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. Communication tends to be choppy between obstructions, making it somewhat difficult to listen to music consistently.
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.
Lenovo thinkplus LivePods GM2 Pro has a U- or V-shaped sound signature.
Please see here for detailed reviews on sound quality.
Lows / Bass
The low end of the Lenovo thinkplus LivePods GM2 Pro is a bit expansive, but reaches relatively deep.
Drum kicks are heavy enough and impactful enough, but shallow there, and rumble is a bit lacking.
The electric bass also has a fair amount of blackness, but it's not as tight, and it's hard to hear the deepest parts, so it seems to be sinking in poorly.
In terms of quantity, it may satisfy bass lovers, but in terms of quality, the sound is a bit lacking for heavy bass enthusiasts.
The midrange of the Lenovo thinkplus LivePods GM2 Pro has a backward leaning structure with an emphasis on thickness and depth. Resolution is quite good and transparency is good.
The midrange tends to sound dry, and the texture is inaccurate and extremely edge-enhanced, making the sound noisy to the ear and difficult for me personally to get used to.
Cymbals, guitars, and snares lack smoothness and sound gritty, and vocals have a strong sibilance sound, and songs with many "t" and "s" consonants tend to be a bit too aggressive.
Linearity is not bad, so it is not too difficult to understand, but it sounds like it could give you a headache if you listen to it for too long.
Highs / Treble
High frequencies have excellent extension and plenty of detail. Localization is also quite good.
The adjustment is smooth with relatively good sound image consistency, and the overtones are for the most part quite natural. However, the highs tend to sound noticeably rougher, with more brilliance in the highs, and cymbal crashes, for example, sound a bit aggressive and loud. Subtlety is also a bit lacking.
Sound quality general comment
- Original sound fidelity: B+
- Recommendation: C
- Personal preference: C
The Lenovo thinkplus LivePods GM2 Pro has a fairly high resolution for its low price, but it is too edgy and easy to hear with a dry, crashing sound.
Basically, I do not recommend them. There are well-rounded-sounding earphones like the EnacFire E60 in the same price range, and you can buy the QCY T17 for a little extra money, so there is no need to buy these.
Sound quality features
- High resolution
- Sound field with a sense of depth
- Excellent sense of edge
- Loud and noisy high frequencies
- Lack of textural accuracy
- Inaccurate localization
- Poor extension of high frequencies
The Lenovo thinkplus LivePods GM2 Pro are true wireless earbuds that offer high resolution and depth of sound at a low price. The combination of massive low frequencies and edge-enhanced highs can sound enjoyable, but it is not for everyone.
