Good headphones got them on a deal few weeks ago
I do love items that instantly go cold with no comments as to why!
Not sure why this is cold. I think taotronics are pretty decent.
In this price bracket you are much better off paying 20 quid for Soundpeats Q30.

Why?
I have a Soundpeats QY7, I am curious about Q30 too.
I am v happy with my QY7 but dunno how it compares to this Taotronics.
If you have an Android 8 Oreo phone, (or selected older Android phones), and have high quality audio files on your device and are interested in preserving sound quality, you might want to consider other Bluetooth headphones that support the aptX or (better) aptX HD standard, to get more of the music sent to your headphones.
Bluetooth was originally only designed to carry voice calls and most phone manufacturers compress the music to fit it into the low bandwidth that they reserve for audio (via “Low Complexity Subband Coding” (SBC), at typically less than 200kbps).
aptX over Bluetooth can offer near CD quality bitrates. aptX HD offers near lossless quality for anyone listening to FLAC or similar files.

Also, I think the deal is about the actual item rather that the product group so it's about whether the item is at the best price point right now rather than there is a better product elsewhere, especially if it is more expensive. 'Better' is, in most cases, subjective.
Got mine today. Quite happy with them. Vastly better than the Kitsound ones I bought (and returned) last month. Comfortable, with acceptable sound quality. It'll be interesting to see what battery life is like.

For £13.59, I'm pretty happy TBH. Seem comparable to wired headphones I've had in the same price bracket in the last.

You must know that not every Oreo based or even the near flagship smartphones out there support aptX. Take for example the Huawei P20, no aptX support.
I would however purchase aptX supported earphones to future proof in case I do get an aptX compatible phone.

Hmmmm, I don't think that's strictly true. When buying a functional product (as opposed to a cosmetic one such as clothing, shoes etc) the majority of people aren't interested in the actual item. They are simply looking for the product that delivers the best functional bang for their buck in that price bracket. As such an alternative which offers much better performance for a negligible increase in price should be highlighted IMHO.
Had to return mine, kept needing to pair from scratch every time I wanted to connect.

The ability to switch Audio Codeces including aptx and aptX HD is baked into Vanilla Oreo. (Unless for some weird marketing reason a manufacturer should choose to delete it). As for the P20, it is listed as aptX compatible. See here in the connectivity section.

Your phone and bluetooth device should automatically select the best quality playback codec option available to both of them. However you can manually set a preferred codec hidden away Here in the Developer settings in vanilla Oreo. It may be moved in an OEM Oreo build, so check where it actually is on your phone.
