Over £50 cheaper than Amazon and the cheapest I’ve ever seen it!They’ve also got the Cambridge Audio Melomania’s on sale too if you’re looking for something a bit smaller.

Yep, cheaper than in the UK, but if you'll pay custom and VAT, it will be better to get it from The UK. The cheapest I found in The UK is £190 at OnBuy. I buy products from China, but TBH spending this much may be a risk. I also believe you can find better value brands, technology moved on and there are so many alternatives available now, for much less money. However, if you're keen on Sony, these are probably the cheapest available.

I did not vote, as I prefer cheaper brands (not talking about £15-20 products) such as Anker and if I want to spend more, Samsung and other known brands are under £100 with some luck.
This may be a good deal if you're keen on this particular model.
I'd rather wait and see if we have any black friday deals

No volume control on the device or IPX rating is a deal breaker for me....but I do love ANC. Looking at the libratone, echo buds and new versions of the master and dynamics range at the mo....waiting for the friday that is black

But for the price they are an initial bargain, but only if the spectre of import tax doesn't rear its head.

Regardless, voted hot and thanks for posting

melomania 1 are a whole £9 cheaper than buying them in the UK.

Give up warranty for £9? I don't think Cambridge audio would look at them if they are bought from here.

I don't think i'd give up the warranty on Sony's for £40 either,

The lack of volume is ridicolous I have to admit

Don't know what genius chose to have that left out

Went back to Nuraphones the other day and 1 tap or 2 to control volume on headphones/buds is just mandatory

It’s been mentioned in another deal on HUKD that Sony did honour the warranty for the same earphones bought from eglobal. Besides, how often do things go wrong unless people are perfectionists and constantly looking for faults? I bought 2 UE Megabooms from eglobal 4 years ago and they’re still going strong. On the other hand a JBL Xtreme I bought from Amazon.co.uk died just after a year of use.
Apple killing the market for everyone else and forcing other items into price reductions....

Not defending the Sonys - I agree that the lack of volume control sucks but the majority of true wireless earphones don’t have volume control. There are some that do have them but haven’t implemented them properly - eg: physical buttons that require you to push on your earphones

I hear you - doesn't mean they can't tho - probably just all waiting for it to be the next iteration/feature added
Sorry, but volume control has to a basic function on all bluetooth ear gear....do I really wanna keep getting my smartphone out to carry out such a basic function? No tah.....

And then you take into account the silly money being charged....

The new Plus and Go from Master Dynamic look cool....

Defo, I want these and the beats tru wireless ones hopefully
i hated mine, sent them back. Couldnt get them to stay safely in my ears, cutout regularly, no volume controls - noise cancelling was poor compared to my WM3 (I guess probably because of the poor fit).

Went for jaybird vistas instead and am much happier (even without the noise cancelling)
This is an incredible deal - although after 2 days of having them I noticed audible wind resistance as the design sits slightly out of the ear and the microphone when speaking to people was attrocious. The noise cancelling and sound are great - just don't take a call on these.

He's right though.

Have you tried the Airpod Pros? If you listen to them as a mature, adult consumer without even considering "your favourite brand", they're damn good. I have no Apple products, never have. All Google. However, tried them out with my Pixel on launch day and thought they were fantastic. It's going to send all of these distinctly average competitors plunging.
I am after these but no way would I buy from this seller no matter how cheap.

Suggest you look at trust pilot before risking it.

I bought these earphones from this site and had no problems. The delivery took longer than 10 days and they also give you tracking. I didn't also have to pay any import tax.

I previously thought like that but have never had any problems buying from them. They also accept PayPal which always gives me peace of mind.

I'm no defender of eglobal, but those bad reviews fall into one of two categories. Either, the buyer didn't realise they were importing from Hong Kong so didn't realise there would be a wait for delivery (buyer's failure to check where the company is rather than eglobal's fault). Or, MyHermes "lost" (=stole) the package. Eglobal are hardly the only seller that use MyHermes, and MyHermes service is universally poor / criminal whoever the seller is (in this case, it is eglobal's fault for continuing to use MyHermes)
Agree with the China bit but these are leading in class mate.

Bought these from eglobal on release and no customs or VAT bill for me.

These are worth every penny.

I've never paid custom tax and VAT on any of my purchases from China, however, quite a few HUKD members commented they had to pay these taxes. I guess it depends how lucky you are.

From the reviews I’ve read these give better noise cancelling and sound quality, particularly bass, than the AirPods Pro. The AirPods on the other hand sound better in calls and obviously pair better across Apple devices. Horses for courses.

In relation to the lack of IPX rating on these, I’ve had them for a couple of months now and have worn them regularly to the gym and even soaked them due to a leaky backpack in a downpour and can confirm no ill effects.
Have had these since August after having Powerbeats Pro and the difference is night and day. The Sony's fit nicely and the noise cancelling is amazing for noisy TFL Buses and the Tube. Thanks to these I often forget how loud the tube trains actually are till I'm not wearing them.

The battery life is amazing. I wear them to and from work (40-60 min journeys) and wear them in the office where I enable the 'focus on voice' feature if anyone needs my attention. The battery life lasts me 2-3 weeks based on the usage mentioned above.

The charging case is a nice design and easy to use. Far smaller than the powerbeats pro case which I couldn't even fit in my pocket properly.

Best true wireless earbuds I've used to date.

To be fair that can be said about every Apple product released. Also this is not a price drop of the actual product is just cheaper import. UK prices for this are £200 plus. As to sound quality and what's best that's a personal preference. For example the new galaxy buds score the highest on some professional reviews. I think after a certain price most headphones will sound awesome and there will be little variation between but it all comes down to what your budget is. For me I want these, the galaxy buds and the beats true wireless ones but all at my personal biting price. I also really like the look and features of the human headphones so will be interesting to see how they fair.
Mine have just arrived via dpd. They came well wrapped, no issues. The default language is Chinese but this is easily changed via the app.

What’s the country of origin? And where were they manufactured?
Edited by: "AppStar" 9th Nov
They were dispatched from the UK. I cannot see a country of manufacture however I would be amazed if they were not Chinese made.
I have looked at these for a long while prior to release, read all the professional reviews how great they are, the Amazon reviews how not so great they are and now I'm in limbo.

I bought a pair a Jabra Elite 65ts from Amazon, really happy with them, aside from no noise cancelling.

Anyone offer suggestions, alternatives, ideas?

I'd like these but feel they're not the real deal yet, omitting the volume is an issue since I'm used to that feature on the Jabras......
