Hi All,

Been looking for some decently priced in-ear BT earphones, as my even cheaper Mpow Seahorses snapped on me (no idea how!?!).

MIssed the Backbeat Pro deal on Amazon :O(...

Need something for the commute to work and the gym, and these appear to fit the bill. I have owned the FSL Zero's (over ears) and can vouch for the sound quality claims from the manufacturer, but I have to say the Zero's had suspect build quality, which was proved when the headband snapped and believe me I treat my tech with the utmost respect!......

These earphones don't appear on the FSL website and I have emailed them about this. Not sure if this is a worrying sign......

So, they are apparently down from £109.99 to £39.99 Amazon, while on the iheadphones.co.uk site they are down from £119.99 to £79.99. Please note that iheadphones are the reseller on Amazon and the item is fulfilled by Amazon.

I won't be able to tell if these higher prices are inflated or not until they arrive and I get to put them through the testing gauntlet that is the London Underground....MWAHAHAHAHAHA!!!! ;O)

Description below from the Amazon.co.uk website:

Premium sound quality - precision drivers and aptX audio coding deliver CD-quality music
Secure fit - small and light these Bluetooth earphones are built to let you enjoy your music on the move. Use the included ear fins to keep your earphones in when doing sports.
Headset function - music stops to receive a call, use the built in microphone and remote controls to control your call
Music control - the handy remote lets you change track and volume right from the earphones.
Compatibility - will pair with pretty much all smartphones and tablets as well as having NFC pairing

I am proud to say that this is my first post EVER, so for me this is somewhat of an auspicious occasion in my life. Ranks somewhere between the birth of my son and actually buying a deal posted on here for something in Tesco!!!! ;O)

Happy Shopping :O)

Listening to them right now....

1) Appear to have good build quality.
2) Good passive noise isolation.
3) They need to "burn" in some more.....
4) Tweaking the sound via Neutron music player, which is in my opinion the best android music player out there....so much to tweak, and I love to tweak!!!! :O)Vocals sound good....base for me needs to turned down a little but this is subjective.
5) Nice case with extra ear bits and bobs.

All in all, worth the £39.99 I paid, but definitely not worth the reported RRP of over £100.00's!!!!......Time will tell if they are truly up for it :O)

Hope this helps and happy shopping :O)

Considering there original price how do these compare to the phonak 012 with grey filters.

Hi Atif,

I'm afraid I have no idea how they compare to the phonak's......I think someone needs to do a caparison review for the glut of cheap in-ear bluetooth earphones that are now available.....any takers???

By the way, I wouldn't take much notice of the original price for these......Hope this feedback helps :O)

These are working great so far....better sound isolation then the Mpow and unlike the Mpow, these FSL's do not break up when walking in the street.....Hope this helps :O)
