Sony MDR-XB30EX In-Ear Headphones now £14.99 @ Argos (Instore)

Found 8th Aug 2014
Spent the past week looking for some £10-£20 in-ears to last me a month or so until I can justify shelling out £100 for some really decent ones and found these available to reserve instore for £14.99.

A quick search shows that these have been posted on HotUKDeals before (several times) but at £19.99. But this doesn't appear to be available for Delivery; Collection only.

Just to help some of you, I've lobbed in a few postcodes I know off the top of my head, including my own, to check availability:

I bought some this morning along with some Sony xba-c10 £19.99 ( down from £49.99). My first impressions are that I prefer these XB30EX for the sound, build quality and value

Just been and picked up a pair of these, listening through them right now. Bass is fantastic (as they like to tell you on the box about 5 times). Comes with a tatty bag to keep them in, but I never use those anyway. Also comes with a plastic shirt clip, but again I never use those. Cord is quite flat (rather than rounded), which I like as it feels more durable. And the plug is L shape so it doesn't get damaged when using with mobile devices in pockets, another plus. Really good quality for the money, would recommend.

Bought these couple of months ago. I couldn't decide between these and the RHA MA350 but decided to try my luck with these considering I'm more of a bass fan. Also owning in-eat beats heaphones I have to say these headphones are super value for money the bass is clear and punchy. I listen to Rock and RnB, I believe these headphones really compliments those genre very well. I would say that you will need to 'burn-in' the headphones and they become even better! (if that is possible) the tangle free cable ensures they are never in a knot.

The only downside to these headphones are that they are not built with a Mic. But I guess for £20 (time I purchased) you cannot get everything. But for £15 I feel they are a steal.

Good headphones but no mic

I have these and for relatively cheap headphones they are superb, hard to fault them for this price. If you aren't sure then reserve and collect, you won't regret it.

I have these..... Great !!!!

Reserved!

Very good set of earphones, block a lot of outside noise and the bass on these is impressive. Bought these for £20 when they were half price so this is a brilliant offer for a fantastic pair of earphones. Can't recommend them enough.

Any good for use when running?

I use mine when running and they're great and don't fall out. Just make sure you select use the correct size buds from the selection provided with them.

How are Argos with extending reservations? I reserved last one available in a shop 6 miles away but my car is in garage till Monday morning so can't go there until Monday (no busses going there) but my reservation is until tomorrow:(? Its a last pair available in all stores near me. Would they extend my reservation if asked nicely?

They are great headphones, however I wouldn't use them for running as the ear bits are a bit bulky, and would be liable to easily fall out.

yes they should do

Can vouch for these. Great bass, loud enough and comfortable.

just wait until midnight then re-reserve them before anyone else gets the chance, I've done that loads of times.

Just picked up the last pair in Borehamwood Extra. Can't wait to get home and test ride them.

Luckily i got the last piece in store :P

picked up yesterday and using them as I type. Fantastic quality for the price
