I also called before ordering, as a friend wanted a pair as well, so had them both in the same order, they confirmed that they are A refurbished stock, but weirdly, I had 2 B stock items in sept and they were brand new, either way, they have 12 months sony warranty, so personally I do not care at this price!!!Hope you get some if they last, they would not tell me how many they have, so that likely means 4!!!


3hrs mate, 3hrs of continuous music, that's it! Seems a bit faffy to always be charging them every 3 hrs. I think I will begrudgingly give them a miss, dispute being at a very good price. Nice one bitcoin!!

Can anyone confirm the firmware update helped the drop-out issue? I've …Can anyone confirm the firmware update helped the drop-out issue? I've just ordered but slightly worried..



I had these for a couple of weeks from Costco @ £120.

The last update improved drop outs quite a bit, but it didn't eliminate the issue. It also improved the ANC a little, but still nothing to shout home about as you'd hear yourself

Most importantly the update drastically reduced the lag making them useable for video. It dropped down to ~150ms which is tolerable for most.

I've posted my thoughts in my original thread: hotukdeals.com/dea…819

But I'll add to them here:

1) Sound very good (not an audiophile)

2) Battery life acceptable. 3 to 4 hours possibly a touch more depending on volume. If you have ANC on that brings it down to 3 hours and possibly a few minutes less if there is significant radio interference about. They charge quick in the case though.

3) Noise Cancelling, is decent, but largely due to them being IEM's. ANC adds a little, but I could still hear cars/etc when walking down the road. Therefore definitely wouldn't block out a train/plane. One of the reasons I returned them in the end, as at the £120 price point they needed to cover my flights as well. I suspect those that rate the ANC either have little experience of decent ANC headphones or haven't used IEM's before and so don't realise most of the noise is being blocked physically.

4) Fit and finish. They fit my ears very well. If you can't get these to fit you (given the number of inserts provided) then IEM's in general probably arent for you. They are very light and stay in the ear so probably good for exercise (although don't think they are sweat proof).

5) Appearance, they look reasonably good. Not too obtrusive. Perhaps they look like a headset, although they are much smaller. The major issue is the damn blinking LED. Couldnt figure out a way to turn it off.

At ~£57 from Amazon.it I'm really considering grabbing them again.

Maybe if you paid £104.23 on Fleabay for someone else's 2nd hand ones!!!

These are like new and come with ALL new earbuds if they have been used, which in the case of Grade A like new, is not the norm, had 6 different items, when the prices where right and everyone has been either like new or naff box only!!

Thanks, had them on sub £99 for the A grade for months on an alert and could never get them in the cart quick enough, when they had any stock, nearly got them Sunday in the sale with a voucher at curry's, as they are amazing to use, but held off and then this happened! Super happy!

HOT! great headphones, the tech is coming on well but still needs improvements.
There were some on Amazon.it for €61 plus delivery. I got some Jabra Sport Elite for £75,as new, if you dont trust that then you can always get replacement buds.
Awesome find bitcoin-ordered one for myself-had to rush to choose the colour in case they sold out!

Personally liked the black.
Would have chosen the B&W in ear @ Amazon but at this price point and with NC this wins!

That is pretty much horse doop, one of the girls at my gym has them, she trains for at least 4+ hours with her flat out metal music and they also can be pulse charged in the pot in 15 mins to give more if needed, I am always near a power brick so of no bother to me!

The sport elite's and the 65t's are like giant pillows sticking out of your ear holes compared to these, I sent the 65t's back after a week and paid full price for them, it was these or the new mk2's but after seeing the price and what has changed, these will do!
As to condition “Refurbished AudioAll our refurbished products are fully tested and repaired where necessary by an authorised repair centre and have a 12 month warranty.”

My understanding of B&W refurbished is that they replace all the rubber/foam bits so Sony should do the same
great deal for noise cancelling wireless had phones its a shame the reviews are terrible for them hence why they probably have so many refurbished ones available for sale
I have these, they are pretty bad, big flashing leds on your head when they are pairing with each other and they lose connection more often than id like, which makes one cut out. The noise cancelling isnt great either.

Good deal I guess? as they were a lot more expensive than this

I think the noise cancelling is pretty good. Use them on the airplane and they make a massive difference.
three hours battery life is terrible

still voted heat for the price

I read the reviews for both the Sony and the Jabra of which I went with the Jabra and am pleasantly surprised with the Sport Elites. I find them very comfy plus I wanted them for the Sports mode with Heart rate monitor, If I didnt need that function then I would probably go with the Sony but only because of the Amazon price. I dont think any of these are worth any where near full price but I'm happy with £75 for the Jabra's
Voted hot and ordered - been on the lookout for these for a while.

Not knocking them, just they were too big for my liking, I only got these as a stop gap until Amazon sends out all the MK3's on hold from the other hukd deal, but now I have some coming.. likely to keep them for some testing!
Amazon reviews aren't great.. 2.8/5..
These are definitely worth the price I got these from Amazon about 2 month ago on there warehouse for £85 they said like new but when I got them they had never been opened.

Really?! I don't rate the ANC on these at all.
Great price this, and you can get lots of new buds for 99p on eBay so I wouldn't worry about them being refurbs.

The case is a bit fiddly and the battery life is poor but what do you expect from tiny little batteries like what's fitted in these.
Great price. And voting hot . However I found the right ear bud cut out quite a bit. So much so I sent mine back to amazon. Fantastic quality when they worked though.

I'll maybe quantify what I'm saying by stating they are my first pair of noise cancelling headphones. So they could be awful compared to others
Are they sweat proof I keep destroying every set I get at gym
Had a pair of these there pretty useless to be honest, 2 hr battery life if your lucky, left one kept losing signal there's a delay if your using them for video. They do however sound decent.
Where does it say grade A?
Thanks OP, bagged a pair on the basis of how impressed I was with a pair of Soundcore True-Wireless Earphones Liberty Lite that I bought from Amazon back in August.

Hope these are a step up

Think that was a firmware fix a while back, so not sure if some of the batches were prone to doing it, via a hardware issue on the pcb or it was just a matter of lean & clean with new update on them, will be doing that anyway, regardless of what version rewrite the software is!

Good deal
Resisted your other deals (even the WH-1000MX2!), but I've had my eye on these for quite a while as wanted some wireless in-ears. Was hoping Amazon Warehouse would dip sub-£70 but this is close enough to bite.

Thanks and heat added!
