Anyone unsure about these, might want to go for the anker soundbuds. I've recently got a pair for myself, and surprised how good they are for just over fifteen quid.

I have these, can be a little fiddly to put in, but don’t move once they are fitted right, excellent sound quality too

I don't expect much for the price but I thought I'd give them a go, lots of mixed reviews on Amazon. As long as there loud enough to cut out the noise on the tube, I'll be happy with them

Iv bought these and they’ve done me good, been on numerous runs and only had a little issue of them coming out when it was raining! Worth the money!

are the anker ones noise cancelling as well?

Was thinking of waiting for Black Friday but so tempted with the noise cancelling... Would be great for a plane journey

Also number one on Amazon in... Trussing?!

Went for these, got a £3 Amazon pantry voucher for no rush delivery so not bad

I bought a pair of these a few months ago good sound quality and they stay in when running but they are cheaply made the plastics that attach the cable to power source have cracked and the wiring is visable..they still work but.

I have these and they are my all time favourites. Really nice sound quality and fit. Good battery life.

Not sure they are noise cancelling, as nothing in the spec listed as far as I can see. Personal experience of use though, I literally can hear no outside noise when using mine.

Bought a selfie stick of this brand from amazon before, pretty bad made

I can see how that relates to this deal , but thankfully, you can't attach your phone to these for a godawful selfie and as an added bonus, they also happen to be really good pair of bluetooth sports earphones.....

Had mine about a year, during which time they've done plenty of mountain biking / cycle commuting and performed excellently. Make sure to experiment with the supplied buds (as with all headphones) to get a good seal and you'll be rewarded with great bass performance and all round audio. I've actually found the little rubber 'hooks' supplied to be really useful for keeping the buds in place for higher impact use like mountain biking, so give them a shot if that's your thing.

Paid around the same price a year ago - well worth the money. Good spot OP

I think the noise cancelling feature refers to the microphone, seems to be a marketing trick. I have the Anker sound buds and when properly worn you cannot hear much from the outside world, and I’d expect these to be pretty much the same. I’ve been really impressed with the Ankers

Which of these did you get?

These only came out in July this year.
You probably have the BH07s if you paid around this price.

These are BH26s so a different model.

I have the BH16s which I'm very impressed with but paid around £26 several months ago.

The Amazon reviews for this are really dodgy.

Just had a proper look online, seems the Qualcomm site does reflects that it is for the microphone. Guess I'll wait for the Ankers to hopefully drop on Black Friday...

102 of 307 reviews fail the Review Meta test but overall rating is still 4.2 out of 5.

I bought the Anker versions and can highly recommend those if anyone is looking for an alternative.

I have them. Fantastic purchase, would say the sound is better than my Sennheisers - though thats also due to proximity of the buds than actual cans, and for being passive noise cancelling. Easy to sync and good calling quality; good remote. Hold in the button to assess Siri etc.

The magnetics is really useful, so its easy to bring them on the go. In fact, I forget sometimes that I'm carrying them around my neck.

Would them again with no hesitation if I loose my current ones - easily

Not sure on the quality of sound on these but I know that the Aukey ones are absolutely fantastic for the price.

I have these . Love them .

******** they are not good when used while running ************
I bought them to be used as GYM headphones but they don't stay in while running (It could be my ears)

While walking they are absolutely fine. Quick to pair with bluetooth and music sound is decent too.

Yup. This. I paid more than this for them and would have no issues recommending them.

Saw this comment, ordered Anker and agree. Quality of sound is excellent- much better than expected

Chucked mine away, absolute garbage even at this price. Sound quality is AVERAGE at best. Connection quality is pathetic (losing connection from pocket).

I’ve had mine for a year now. Battery life is ok. Sound quality is average. I use them for the gym and tend to treat headphones as a consumable as they tend not to last due to damage, sweat and misplacement. Would I buy another pair? No I wouldn’t. Why? I find the cable gets in the way due to the controls being placed part way down. I’m forever adjusting the cable when working out. Especially frustrating and compounded when running. I must say, Bluetooth headphones are a game changer when it comes to the gym.

I got the Anker sound buds after going through a few other cheap Brands. The Ankers are MUCH better compared to the other I’ve tried. The build quality is far superior and the fit is perfect. Sound quality is ok, not outstanding but good enough for the gym.

I think the noise cancellation only applies to the microphone for calling. But of course as they're in-ear types you'll get some noise isolation.

I bought Anker SoundBuds Slim and found them very average at best.
even for the price.nothing great about them, just average £16 worth of kit.

I bought a pair of these. Amazing sound quality for the price I paid, even more so at this price. Battery life is ok. I got 2 full gym session (ie about ~5-6 hours) out of them before having to recharge to ensure they made it through the next one - so maybe 6-7 hours total. What I didn't like though was how much they stick out of your ears when wearing them - the weight is mostly at the outer end, so when you're running on the treadmill they tend to move about a lot. Because they're very well sealed against your ears, the movement causes the sound to cut out - possibly due to the change in air pressure? They also tend to slip off to one side because the control/battery is off-centre, so I was forever having to readjust them.

I ended up replacing them with these:
amazon.co.uk/Ali…BWH
Similar sound quality (ie very good), slightly better battery life, and stay put around your neck much better. The driver sticks out less, and is lighter in the ear than the taotronics ones, so they don't move about so much when running. They do, however, cost a fair bit more.

I'm no audiophile, but very happy with them. Most anker stuff is very decent quality imho. I guess it's how high you set your expectations for £16 but me personally, find them more than adequate for both music listening, podcasts or radio listening. I've been very happy with them. Or maybe yours were a faulty pair, quick anker would be quick to swap based on what I've seen of their customer service reviews.

No they were not faulty,just mediocre quality really.
specially for music,I’ve had cheap wired earphones that sound much better.
they are ok,but not great,
for the price they do the job.
I know Anker has good customer service and decent quality considering the price in general.
I returned mine.

I had 2 pairs of soundbuds, first set lasted a month then wouldn't charge, second set didnt last one run, I fully charged it but only lasted 20 mins, have a set of these now, not as comfy as the ear buds though.

Can anyone comment on what the range is on these headphones? Sounds like a stupid question but I've got some MPOW bluetooth headphones that constantly drop out when I go running. My phone is in a pocket at the back of my shorts which you wouldn't think would be enough distance to start dropping a connection....

I have these and love them. Took a bit of use to get used to them but use at gym loads and taken a call on them fine. First set went wrong after 11 months. Replaced no quibble. New set going strong.

Ordered these and sent back within a week. The remote on the side weighs it out resulting in that side falling out constantly

Pros:
-Perfect fit (you need to find best wings for you)
-Cheap

Cons:
-Low sound quality (hence they're cheap)
-Remote is weighty

I'd recommend another model which cost £19.99 has lighter remote control but lower battery.

This place makes me laugh. "Better than my Sennheisers", "Absolutely Terrible" etc.

I've had a pair of these earphones for the last year or so and they're perfectly decent. Sound quality is okay, bit on the quiet side. Never had any issues with the fit and they've always stayed in while running.

All in all, they're very good value but don't expect miracles from a £15 pair of earphones!

I have a set of these. They’re brilliant.
