Cheap Aukey earbuds quality expectations?

Posted 16th Mar 2023 (Posted 8 h, 3 m ago)
I bought a pair of £10 aukey bluetooth earbuds from the mymemory deal a week ago. They have a steady constant background static that is very distracting, especially with quieter stuff.

Is this usual in cheap earbuds? I was assuming they might be a bit tinny but OK for watching tv and so forth. But being digital I thought they would be fairly clear otherwise? Thinking of trying to swap them, though they do claim to test all returns, whether I'm just expecting too much?

    Try MPOW ear buds, similar price but with better fit, features, sound quality etc
    Binned a pair of Aukey i purchased from the seller you mentioned after only few days.
    Wouldn't connect/sync properly and awful sound

    I bought some Aukey ones a few years ago for almost £30 and like you I got a strange static/hiss noise. They constantly disconnect and don't reconnect, then you have to do a pairing routine that takes about 15 minutes! Really awful and they've put me off bluetooth earbuds. I'll just stick to wired!
