Wireless Bluetooth earphones are moving away from having a wire connecting them nowadays. Some of the reviews are from 2017 so these must be an old model and were £1000 when released. With tech you would expect them to be a lot cheaper than this when they are at the end of their life cycle.

But the tech is still current with the Tesla drivers, and they are still £999 it seems everywhere, and they are not bluetooth.

Yes the price on Amazon says that, my point is that if you search for these headphones they are £999 everywhere else, so at a near 50% saving to people that want these it's a huge saving.

So this is for a pair of wired earphones?
I think from that aspect alone these aren't relevant for the majority of people who use Bluetooth earphones and their phone to listen to music.
It's definitely the cheapest price for this product though, as you said.

Somethings especially in audio are so good that the normal production/marketing/sales cycle doesn't apply. This may be in the top ten for another 10 years.

They're £500, that alone makes them less relevant to most. Wired offers the best quality, so it makes sense for them to not be Bluetooth.

I'm near 40. My knackered ears from 2 decades of going out and having wife/children/customers shout at me wont be able to tell the difference between this and an overpriced set of £300 earphones. Same reason i'll never get a job on sonar duty on a sub.

I said they are still expensive, but a big saving from other retailers so it's a deal, maybe not a deal many will be interested in, but if it gets someone a great pair of headphones a lot cheaper that's what this site is for.

(I've actually purchased a pair)

That wasn't really my point. More to wireless side of it.

Yeah bluetooth codecs have improved but wired will always be far superior from a sound point of view.

Audiophiles might find this a bargain...but this forum more in mainstream I believe, understandably - voted hot for sheer quality
Edited by: "xavierluther" 10th Feb
Seriously snake oil stuff, these are worth more than Weight in gold?!?!! How can you get spectacular sound out of these- you telling me they ll sound better than the T1s? Surely the size limits the sound abilities? (Didn’t say quality- sure they sound quality- but what about the sound field? Etc. I can’t ever justify price of IEMs more than £150.. ever! Unless diamond studded and made of very precious metal!

Not much point posting these here,the majority of folks here only vote up likes of Anker and other cheapo chinese brands that are under £30 and think anything highend is a rip-off.

Not entirely true.
To me, earbuds never give the quality of sound that over the ear earphones do, by far! And I've tried £100 plus earbuds. Not wireless. So voted hot just because they're reduced in price
My best phones were/are Stax Lamda Pros, so can't see that these tiny 'dynamic' phones can actually be worth anything like £1000

Loving Anker headphones for sheer value for money, I'm willing to add heat now for sheer quality, lucky those who have cash to burn + are music-mad.

Digging deeper, you might find better value in mid/high-end IEM territory from likes of Shure, 1More etc - these are very serious buds by BD though, worth a look, and a listen, at this price for those in that budget

I've got a lot of headphones, some nuraphones which are superb and few chinese in ears, brainwavz b400 are quite good, but these get some great write ups by the ones worth listening to on You Tube and at half price compared to anywhere else I doubt I'll ever see a better deal.. Honestly thought I never spend this much on headphones, but that's one plus of bi-polar... You treat yourself a lot... 🤫

These are like jewelry, not very sensible taking them to street, plus don't have ANC. Good thing about Amazon is, you can so easily return if not happy - tbh, I really doubt you won't be satisfied with this high-calibre pair. Real question is, can you get similar quality for less? Answer is maybe positive, but you won't get diamond-style earbuds for less...

(PS: being in bp club too, and music-mad, I try to exercise restraint with wallet - not always successful, it looks I'm going to pass this time, a bit over my budget, but probably worth every penny)

Yeah.. I can't really see how much better they can be over the B400 and if the difference isn't remarkable I'll probably return them, worth giving them ago though as these will just be for home use, I find over the ears a bit restrictive led down..
rev610/02/2020 01:49

Have you listened to IEM's over £150?


Yes several, never like them to over ear ones, they all sound tinny to me. Not to mention uncomfortable to keep on- feel insider of my ears get hot no ventilation, so have to take off and put back on every so often; so never liked IEMs; I am biased.

My Jabras 65e extremely comfortable, in-ears more comfortable in summer, when on/over-ears fry your ears up (some manage that even in winter)

Sound will definitely suffer below £200 but these are on audiophile level, thanks to cord too, you'd most likely be blown away by sound quality, as well as comfort and...bling, head-turning factor

I suppose you roll the dice, checking feedback and all. If you've already tried these elsewhere then it's an option at least if you're aware of the risks. But agree Amazons returns policy is usually good, barring the odd bad experience I've had on the marketplace.

Tinny sounds like a fitting issue. I found most cheaper in-ears can be boomy, the ones I've tried anyway. Massively scooped mids and no treble. Good IEM's, even many Chi-Fi one's are so much better at it. My problem with in-ears is the fit, and them staying in my ears, keeping a seal.
On-ears are just so easy, just pop them on and you're good to go. Open ones are spacious and not congested, but many are bulky, not fit for outdoors or around anyone.
I like both, definitely prefer standard headphones, because of the fit.

Similar experience here, until I tried Jabra neckbuds (Elite 65e): first good silicone fit, out of the box. More expensive buds (like these) include memory foam tips, apparently the best. Got mine mostly for summer, I sweat a lot (without exercise) and can't be bothered with headbands & earpads, needed alternative, neckband concept seems to work

65e have good mids, with ANC on in noisy streets you feel limitations both of sound and noise reduction, better in a quiet place with ANC off. No AAC yet, at least my Pixel defaults to SBC, Jabra could add that OTA. Obviously budget pair, but good quality for money Jabra-style

I must admit the Cambridge Audio SE-1's fit good out of the box. I didn't try the Comply tips but the ones on it already fit good!
