These have reduced in price by 22% over the last few weeks, having been in my wish list. At this price I've taken the plunge. They are cheaper than the Ausdom M05 rebadged equivalent and come with a handy carry case which the Ausdom's do not. They are also shipped from UK.

Judging by the reviews these are probably one of the best bang for your buck over the ear BT headphones out there, plus they look gorgeous. When they run out of charge you can plug a standard 3.5 mm headphone lead in to them (supplied).

Great headphones especially for the price. A little to small for my ears though.

Any idea if they'd work with the fire TV

Yes, Fire TV requires Bluetooth 3.0. These support up to 4.0.

Looks? Is that all you care about, and not the sound quality?

Very tempting at this price. Think I'll bite. Had it on my wishlist at £64.99.

I don't think there is really anything under £100 in terms of bluetooth headphones that will be better than these.

Just read a review here comparing several bluetooth headphones and I think I've made the right choice by going for these. They don't put it at number one but I'm not a fan of on-ear earphones so I think I'll be happy with these.

I also ordered a pair of open headphones too, the Philips SHP9500 as they've got some brilliant reviews but I've already got the Brainwavz HM5 so I'm gonna have to sell either the Brainwavz or the Philips for the more critical listening sessions where having a wireless connection is not a necessity.

I've just had mine delivered and they look even better in the flesh, sounding lovely. I don't want to take them off. Came ready charged and have voice feedback. Very impressive. I can hear more of the music compared to my previous phones and only wish some of my mp3 encodings were at a higher bitrate!

I will never go back to on ear phones after using these. My Sony's are now history.

Hmm I didn't read your opening post to be honest but just read them now and saw that the Meelectronics AirFi Matrix2 are the same rebadged headphones as the Ausdom M05.

I've found the Ausdom for £45 here: ebay.co.uk/itm…282

Not sure if I should cancel my Amazon order as I'm not bothered about the case.

The review posted earlier suggests the Ausdoms are inferior however.

Good spot, didn't see the review on there. Well I'll be receiving my AF62s tomorrow!

Somehow Amazon managed to get it to me today even though I only ordered it yesterday without prime and only free delivery. Also bought a bluetooth adapter as I'm using it with my self built desktop which doesn't have bluetooth. I chose the inateck one with CSR/aptX and initially the bluetooth adapter was recognised in Windows 8.1 without any custom drivers but the sound quality wasn't very good. I then found some CSR drivers but it seems like they were old and the sound quality was even worse. Finally, I went onto inateck's website and found the CSR Harmony 2.1.63.0 drivers and now when I connect the headphones to my PC they show a little aptX logo and the sound is pretty amazing for this price. I haven't done any A/B testing with my Brainwavz HM5 (which are a rebrand of the Fischer Audio FA003s) but these are more than good enough for what I'll be using them for. They are a bit more bassy than most of my IEM collection but that makes them rather fun, which is brilliant as I'll mainly be using these during the night or morning as opposed to for analytical listening.

Paired with my phone (Meizu MX4) which does not support aptX, it still sounds decent - better than on my PC without aptX but not as good as my PC with aptX.

My only main gripe with these is that they're a bit too small to completely go over my ears comfortably so after long listening sessions (over 1 hour) they get rather hot and uncomfortable. Might have to go with this option: head-fi.org/t/7…mod

I put my HM5 pads on there (pleather variant) and while it is much more comfortable, the sound quality is noticeably weaker so I'm going to just stick with the original pads. Shouldn't be a problem and I'll probably get used to them.

How do you check the current battery level on these and what's the latency like for gaming and video?

That's a shame. They fit my ears perfectly. But its good to know the pads are replaceable when they wear out.
