Really like my Buds. Best part is the 'find my buds' part of the app it makes noise on the earphones so you can find them.

Was thinking about BF, the problem is we don't know if these will be reduced and by how much, up until now I have not come across to a price under £90 even with a discount.

Yeah I though even if they go a bit cheaper, I'll get plenty of use out of them before then so worth just pulling the trigger now
Decent buds? Was toying with this offer but didn't know if even at £90 they were still a bit overpriced? Good battery life and sound?

Decent buds, decent price. You can still get much cheaper and better value IMO such as Enacfire (I have these), Anker, QCY, Mpow T5 and so on, but if you want them branded, these are OK. I believe at £90 are still expensive but I think this is because there is so much choice on the market and we've got used with the Chinese versions, all cheap and ticking lots of boxes.

Cheers mate. Yeah ive been wondering the same - if the buds are worth any more than just some enacs or mpows etc? Or if you do get a bit better battery life, sound, fucntionality than if you spend a bit more on the galaxys?

TBH I found some of the cheap brand have more or better features compared with some expensive ones.
I can definetely tell you my Enacfire (paid £33 reduced from £40) look very neat and premium and the audio quality is fine. I've got some no name ones for £6. A bit flimsy and not as nice as Enacfire. But the case is smaller, so easy to carry, also have more features and louder than Enacfire. Audio quality, I am not an audiophile so can't see a difference in between these 2.
I think most provide 3.5-4 h playtime and while when I've got mine, battery was important to me, 6 months down the line I've realised I never used them for more than 2h per day. Once back in the case, they charge again.
If you want some cheap with longer battery life, I think Mpow T5 may be a good choice, also I think there are some Tronsmart with better battery.

Got the mpow t5 for £17 the other week on here, they sound fantastic really loud and good bass and battery life great, can recommend for budget buds.

I nearly got them too, I've added them in the basket and was debating if I need them, as I already have 2 sets of earbuds. I am buying lately all these 'good deals' I do not need, so changed my mind and took them off the basket. 5 min later decided to get them and it was too late. Got mixed feelings now but great to hear T5 are great, IMO T5 are probably the best value for money of all the earbuds on the market.

Have you tested them to see how long the battery lasts? Amazon description states 5h, some Chinese sites claim about 7h, some reviews as well suggest they go well over 5h. Thanks!

The T5'S are really good. I left a review on Amazon comparing them to the Enacfire E18 buds which are for some reason recommended by Amazon and have loads of 5 star reviews, probably all paid for as the Amazon review system is so abused.

The T5's are at least 10 times better than the Enacfire buds in fact it's probably an even bigger margin than that. The difference is huge and for me at least at the time the T5's were £11 cheaper.

As for battery life if I listen at medium volume I get nearer 6 hours I'd estimate.

Another good pair of buds are the Jam Audio Live Free buds which Argos had down to £49.99 from £79.99 and they are maybe 10% better sounding than the T5's but cost a fair bit more.

If you want cheap though you won't get better than the T5's.
really loving my taotronics SL 53, how much better are these?

Thanks! I am surprised to hear about Enacfire, as I've got their E19 version and I am really pleased with them. I also contacted their CS and they were willing to replace mine for no particular reason.
Am I right to say the Enacfire are smaller?
With regards to Mpow price, I guess you realised the price was wrong, they reduced the price as the deal of the day and forgot to take the £10 off voucher. It didn't last long, as they realised the mistake, I really much doubt it the Mpow will come back to £17.

I didn't get the T5's as deal of the day I paid £25.99 but still feel it was a good deal. The Enacfire E18's were £36.99 and the sound quality is abysmal and they constantly disconnect from Bluetooth. Even if they were a tenner I'd still not have them they are that poor. Maybe yours being a newer model are much better but my experience means I just wouldn't buy that brand again.

I can't really say if the Enacfire buds were smaller but they fitted flatter to my ears if that makes any sense. The T5's are a better fit for me as they are shaped better.

Thanks! My Enacfire never disconnected, what I do not like is they are not very loud (well, for my standards) and they have less features than other cheaper brands.
I may give it a go with the T5, thanks.
Until these support aptX HD and aptX-LL (Low Latency), I question their value over the much cheaper alternatives.

Yeah just watched a couple of reviews on YouTube - seem to get fairly average reviews for the price compared to cheaper mpows etc. Shame, but heat for the price saving all the same.

Are there any other decent electronics retailers taking part in the eBay 20% off promotion? Looking for a cheap android tablet like the Huawei T5
Just had to order myself a pair to replace the other pair of white ones that my wife decided "look like they should be mine" (hers).,

This is why the only white things I buy are washing machines, dish washers or tumble dryers. She can have them all .
Looks like Christmas is in full effect with price rises as even the mpow t5 are now £39.99 on Amazon which is a far cry from the £17 someone paid (yes i know that was a combo of deal of the day and then a £10 off voucher still working) early November lol

I think this is their normal price and I'm sure will drop to their normal reduced price, £29.99. Not sure about £17, I think that was a mistake. Not everyone got it at that price, the deal was posted late and lasted only about 10 min until they removed the £10 voucher, so I'm sure not many got it at that price.
