I had some Bluedio turbines as a Christmas present and wanted some folding ones for the gym and just wanted to try out their "high end" ones.
Great price on these as most people sell for £49.99 or more.

That is some reduction in price on Amazon!!! Looking for a BT headset for my iPhone hoping to hear some opinions about these. Hot

High end? I guess some headphone prices would give you a heart attack!

I said "their high end" they are bluedio's high end headphones.

I have some nice Roland RH-iE3 in ear headphones for home.

High end is not all about price.
Some gullible people will easily cough up £300 on some lesser headphones if someone famous sticks their name against them or they like their marketing.

Just can't understand why people need these in the gym a pair of tiny earphones would be much comfortable?

tried a couple of sets from August and other budget well reviewed brands and got to be honest, my advice would be don't bother. previously owned genuine Nokia bh501 and 503s and the reality is genuine brands sounds infinitly better. just bought some bh214 and they and just light years ahead despite being ancient design

I wouldn't be seen dead wearing the brand your referring to I have sennheiser hd 600 but point taken I wouldn't wear them but voted hot

They are not £199 really, they are usually around £50. They perform fantastic though, especially if you have a phone that supports APTX.

As I stated I had tried the turbines before and for Bluetooth they were fantastic for the price.
Not tried the August ones but being a bit of a headphone buff as I use them all the time for the gym the sound is great.
Only issue would be sound leakage but in the gym that is not an issue as background noise is high.
As for Nokia do they not just rebrand headsets? Cant say I have considered them for headphones?

The cable, I do a lot of weights and catching and breaking cables is a pain (and expensive).
Bluetooth in ear are either pants or bulky and fall out of your ears.

I am not a fan of big headphones, but they are very practical for the gym and generally sound better. (than in ear bluetooth)

Bluedio seem like a dodgy brand to me. Randomly popped up on Amazon with cheap Bluetooth headphones, claiming exaggerated RRPs, and loads of reviews talk of cheap build quality. What makes these so unique and revolutionary compared to ones like Sony's BTN200 or Creative's WP-350/450? I'm not much of a Bluetooth headphone buff but I'm looking for some sub-£50 ones, if anyone has any advice.

Bluedio are a proper brand, not a rebadger. I grant they are not famous but they are decent. The Turbines (low end) are all plastic but you would have to be very heavy handed to damage them. These seem very well made to be honest for the cash you would struggle to get better TBH.
Not aware of any other headphones with APTX, Bluetooth 4.0, decent drivers and good battery life for the money.

TBH I do not think it is them exaggerating the RRP, it is the sellers.

Review on the wired version for anyone interested.

That review is nothing more than a sin to even 1999 web design. I think I have finally found one occasion that Comic Sans MS would be preferable.

Bluedio High-End headphones? You are talking about R+ Legend ones which cost 90 pounds.
That's top of Bluedio range.
I got them this week actually.

Take into consideration that aptX is DISABLED as default by Bluedio engineers due to "incompatibility" with some phones. That's an official statement from about month ago and they were supposed to release some software which will allow you to enable aptX.
Still nothing.

aptX is disabled in R+ as default due to "incompatibility" with some phones according to an official statement. Too heavy bass which you can't disable unfortunately.

Is that the same for the r2?
Do you not have a device with an equaliser?

R series is their "high end" range. They all use the same 8 speakers, just slightly different functionality.
I did not need an SD slot or NFC so R+ were not worth it for me.

Agree but it doesn't change the fact that R+ is top of Bluedio range which was my point.

not enough reviews to convince me to go for thèse.

Deffo a bargain. I had the 1st gen Bludio R's when they first appeared on amazon's website. Comfortable to wear, good sound especially when messed about with using neutron mp. I found these way too bass driven. Build quality is suspect though. Definitely worth considering at this price, but for me too big for the gym. I prefer something more in-ear. I'm holding out for a bigger reduction on the Plantronics Back Beat Pro. Heated up and if you don't like them then you can always return them due to Amazon's great returns policy.

Hmm. Reviews aren't 100% but then the others I've been looking at aren't 100% either. They look comfier than the Creatives I was looking at, and given Amazon's good returns policy I think I'll probably go for these. If something goes funny, I'll be able to return them Thank you for bringing them to my attention OP

Bought a pair of bluedio Bluetooth headphones. Looked lovely in the pictures and good reviews but in reality, cheap and nasty. Never again!

hope you wrote your amazon review to guide others

so aptx is not there at present as claimed. too few reviews. was thinking of buying but might drop the idea.

Have the sony bt 200 mentioned by others here. .. which although is clear has too poor bass and is a disappointment. So was looking to buy philips fidelio bluetooth but they are really expensive so thought this might be worth a punt, but maybe not.

Were they the £18-£19 ones? Or different ones? Clarification would be handy.

Presumably the Turbine ones, which I also have. They are all plastic, they are cheap scratchy plastic on those, but to be honest even for £19 they are still decent headphones.
Not sure why people expect the earth for £19? Cheap headphones tend to look cheap, but on the cheap bluedio they at least sound like they cost a hell of a lot more.

Had the R2s on for 1H 30M in the gym today, very comfortable.

Hi, just to be clear Apt-X has been disabled on these headphones for use with smartphones! Have s Sony Z3 that lets you know when an Apt-X device is connected and never got the message. Confirmed with Bluedio that it has been disabled for use with smartphones. Very weird! Great headphones though, but don't buy them for Apt-X support on a smartphone!

So is APTx not there in all bluedio headphones and they just claim it in the product description. If so then trading standards should look into their products and so should amazon for mis selling and people should get refunds.

My S5 does not tell me but I believe my MP3 player for the gym uses A2DP so does not have APT-X anyway. But the enhanced bit rate support on A2DP is a bonus.
So I presume APTX works on everything else other thn smart phones (providing it supports it).

OK, bought it in the end! Should arrive tomorrow with Prime, I shall let people know how they are. I'm sure you're all dying to hear my review

They phsically look similer to the August ep650 but better spec and cheaper,been on Amazon for 18 months only 3 reviews, look good value. amazon.co.uk/Aug…s_1

Ugh, my package was "Lost in Transit". Had to get a refund and then re-order. Amazon really use some shoddy delivery companies.

Yep turbines. I guess for me the background hiss was also far too audible. For a £5-10 more could get Philips which I have found to be very good in the past. They sure don't look as fancy but at least you know you are buying quality.

Anyway, for others they are probably perfectly acceptable for their needs in terms of looks and maybe the hiss doesn't bother some if the volume is up quite high. I tend to listen at a low-moderate volume.
