Praise the sun
I got one from John Lewis last week with charging stand for £100 best speaker ever. I was expecting it to be good but not this good. Love it so far
I think you mean the knights templar.
The official Ears Boom of Pope Francis. (y)
It says it has a DVB-S/S2 tuner so possibly yes it is freesat.
Yes. I just did a bit of reading. Freesat is nothing more than free to air TV channels via satellite. Manual here - baed on the model number on the box website - with a section on satellite tuning (y) http://www.umc-uk.co.uk/instruction-manuals/Sharp/Universal%20Manuals/SHA-MAN-0395%20NEW%20CHIPSET%20v10_web.pdf
Ok so sat input means it can get freesat? Again sorry to sound dumb
If you open the link, look at the specs tab and read down the list its states it has a sat input but I wouldnt take that at gospel.
Same here Switchy but heat added as it is your deal. I really don't know why people spend soooo much money on Headphones ??
Sony's have more bass but they lose clarity in the mids and highs, you can notice the difference between the Sony's and the other pairs. ANC is the best though bar none
Bose sound quality is top notch. The Sennheiser’s are slightly better, but the difference in comfort between the 2 heavily favours the bose. So basically: small difference in sound quality; noticeable difference in comfort. I haven't tried the px7 so can't comment
I agree, all the reviews I've seen put these in front of the Sony's when it comes to sound quality. The reviews do put the Sony's in front for ANC though. Depends what's more important to you.
Same price on amazon, possibly cheaper with code. I wouldn’t give Curry’s a penny.
Heat added OP 🔥
Didn't work for me either, bit too much to hope for I suppose!
Code didnt work
Get it from Amazon use code Gift05 get it for £25.00 (y)
Nice find! Just bought a pair, wanted some for a while. Heat added!
Just by looking at these giving me earache for not having that seal with softer silicon tip. The sound would leak and you will have to burst the volume to 100% end up hearing loss.
I seen these be posted on the official huawei site for 99 pound but went cold af, any reason for this.
Are these bigger than the standard wired headphones that come with the Huawei (p30 pro)?
Worth the extra £30 over the Honor Magicbuds?
I don't have an oven.
Save yourself £30 and use the one on the oven ;) , admittedly hard to see from the lounge..
Also replaced my Echo Show 5 in the kitchen with an Echo Dot with Clock. Sounds better, is cheaper (and I managed to sell the Echo Show for more than it cost in the first place!), and it is much more reliable. If you ask Alexa to set a countdown timer, the clock display changes to show the number of minutes remaining on the timer, which is pretty much everything I want it to do!
The clock on the Echo Show 5 isn't very easy to read in the middle of the night as the contrast is so poor (and even then, the backlight across the whole screen is too bright even on its lowest setting). It's fine in other rooms, I just find the Echo Dot with Clock much better as an alarm clock for the bedroom. And let's face it, most people only use the screen on the Echo Show as a clock after the novelty wears off :) I'm very glad I switched, but the main reason that drove the switch was that, even after applying the latest firmware updates, the Show 5 had a showstopper bug for me which seemed to be associated with snoozing the alarm too many times. After a couple of months, the alarm would eventually not sound at all when it was supposed to go off, which was not ideal for an alarm clock. I'd wake up and think, "Why isn't my alarm going off?" I'd ask Alexa when my alarm was set for, and she'd say "it's currently going off" or something like that. Volume was not set to zero, and the only way to fix it was to reboot it. After this happened a 3rd time I lost trust in it.
Ordered one for the spare bedroom. Thank you, code worked aswell.
Sonos directly. Sorry, should’ve clarified that
Sonos direct with UNiDAYS or Perkatwork
No you won’t get the 6months Spotify from amazon.
Does this have the 6 months free Spotify, like the Curry's deal?
I guess upon reflection the colour of the first one you buy sets a precedent a little. Go with whatever looks good with your decor :D I started with one too, now have 3 stereo pairs and a single. Sold all my old WiFi to pay for it..I tend to look out for deals on pairs I got 2 for about 250 via Sonos + unidays/perksatwork discount, I posted it on here. You can also cut costs by pairing an SL to a one, as they don't both need a mic
That’s good to know thanks. I’m thinking of getting another one down the line, my room isn’t very bit but with the decor one side of the wall looks good with a white one and the other will look good with a black one. Thinking since I’ve already got the white shall I keep the both as white or won’t look strange to have one of each colour in the same small room?
I hear you, but after a couple of years the white ones still look fine and dust easily. But I don't really touch them loads. If you have lots of white furniture and walls they look invisible
In the home app you can define default speaker. I have a nest hub playing to a beam group. So you don't even need to use that elaborate room command
‘Works with’ so if you have Alexa or Google assistants installed else where they can be used to say ‘play something in the somewhere’
Hi little green I use mine for my TV ,you can use a simple jack cable from this to your headphone socket on your TV ,and the beauty is that you can also connect your phone through Bluetooth for radio or just music . If you need anything else just ask..
Could I use this as sound output for my TV? Of so what is/how easy it it to connect? My TV doesn't have Bluetooth & isn't a smart TV
Great little soundbar for the mobile home ,good price .
There is no difference, but some people would rather buy from Richer :)
Please tell me the difference between those two!!
£1.95 more at richer sounds if you prefer https://www.richersounds.com/sennheiser-cx150bt.html
These are £37.50 on eBay if you don't mind seller refurbished.
I have this and have been using for a couple of months now. Pros: Looks good especially in blue, and appears more expensive than it is. Well presented in its box. Multi language support, it has languages not usually available such as Cantonese. Physical buttons to help you press the correct function. Good battery life. Comes with the usual accessories - 3.5mm cable, dust bag, usb charging cable (no wall plug). Cons: Ears can get sweaty, though overall not unconformable over the head. ANC is not as good as Bose - but that is expected as you are paying less than half the price. At the highest setting, it will reduce noise but you won't come anywhere near blocking it out. Look elsewhere if your priority is ANC. Also, turning on ANC slightly affects audio quality - thought this is common for other sets also. You need to use to app to access some settings - e.g. language selection, EQ (very limited), ANC level, etc.
They only support SBC which is a big no no for latency. Other than that and the micro-USB, they seem OK.
It's mine too. He obviously has great taste.
Or not if there's a shop near you.
& £3.95 delivery ...
I needed pink as it’s my boys birthday and it’s his favourite colour.
Nice. White only.
Im Not gonna buy these TBH but whats the diff between these and apple wireless ear phones except the price
Yes, exactly why the colour name popped into my head - I am not odd after all XD
Did anyone else first think the picture was a rubber duck before looking at the name?! (lol)
They sell on aliexpress for less and you can get the black ones aswell.
Looks like they are to be released on the 8th July with the X50 5G
I have these and agree that the sound quality etc. is very good. A slight warning though, whatever type of silicon material they use for the weird and flimsy ear-tips appeared to cause an allergic reaction for me. I've had multiple ear infections since first using them, having never previously had an infection in my life. I used Redmi airdots for a year before purchasing these with no issue so it's not due to them just being in-ears. I've since seen posts on other forums showing a few users complaining about such a reaction. You could be fine as it's not an issue for everyone but just something to bear in mind.
The gits (lol) I bought these on 26th June for 60 quid from Amazon :| I absolutely love them. They're big, full and loud and easily the best earbuds I've had. They're the first headphones that made me want to be an audiophile if that makes sense.
Thanks , ,ordered . Seemed to be good reviews apart from Amazon ones where connectivity , discomfort etc was continually mentioned , but with 30 trial period I'll give them a good testing . I like creative MP3 players from the past - Stone , Zen etc so hopefully be as good quality
yep i agree like i said the call quality on the samsung surprised me .
Thanks for the reply mate
Amazon are going to put a few more on sale in the next half an hour, but nothing worth trying by the looks of things. I do still need a good set of training headphones, so keeping a close eye on what comes up, Tozo NC9 would have been a contender if they had aptx :/
I had the p2s, but I sent them back, as I just didn't get on with the in ear fitting, but if you do like the in-ear design, I thought the sound was excellent. I bought these Truebuds and I love them. Case is a bit too big, and combining it with a spare battery is OTT, but I know some love it. Sound wise (for semi-in ear) they're really good, and I would just replace them immediately if I lost them. Only issue is latency is a bit poor, but apparently it's the case with all tws except Apple and Razer earphones.
Interesting comments and feedback. Found it very difficult to decide when reading comments on here & reviews online. What swayed this for me was the semi in-ear design, I find it feels better in my ears compared to fully in ear buds. Hopefully I won't be dissapointed with these 🤞🏼
Boltune is a company which makes very good ear phones with extra bass, infact I tried soundcore Anker too, boltune was way better. Personally go by sound quality and not brand value.
I really wanted to like these as they seemed well made but sadly there is very little bass even with EQ. I couldn't get on with them so returned them.
It would scare the living jaysus outa ye if u got a additional 60w burst how and again lol
Googled RMS. Seems to be 30w with up to 120w on occasional bursts. Though the one I looked at said 60 burst. X4 the recommended seems off, and I'm sure it would sound awful.
In the title u say it 120w and in the description it a 30w :/
not sure if you have ever used them, I have tested number of headphones including Sony, Technics, Bose and Sennheiser and B&O sounds the best, I don't really care about noice cancellation or gaming, I am only after sound quality.
Where can i find these measurements?
Looking at beats solo 3 myself. What is the microphone quality like?
For those who still have them and are having Bluetooth cuts, weird touch control behaviour etc. try getting in touch with B&O. I had that and thought it was just suboptimal tech, but it turned out they were faulty, complete new paid sent to me 6 months late and they've been perfect since.
The camera has an app that send you movement notifications and you can obviously drop in on it to check also. I use an ezviz indoor camera (different model to this one) as a nursery camera because it ticks all the boxes of the dedicated baby monitors while also allowing the stream to be viewed on the Nest Hub and Chromecast TV’s as well as the app. The camera has a default setting which sets off the internal alarm if motion is detected, remember to turn that off if you are using it for monitoring home or children/elderly. I didn’t know until it happened unfortunately.
Won't be part of nest aware though, if peeps using this already this would add and record events for 30 days or 24/7 for no extra cost. Pretty useful for security camera, although Ideally I'd want some more control on when they record
Hi is this 24/7 recording? Or just recording and playback when motion is detected?
Does it cats to Chromecast? Wondering if this would make a good baby monitor.
More than welcome! I think it's a great idea, especially if you activate the home contacts on the device so she can just touch the screen and press who she wants to call. And she'll likely love seeing shared photos you can display on it, I can't think of a better use for smart screens than people who aren't technically minded
This Soundbar was offered as a free gift a few months back if you had taken out one of their promotional SIM offers. Might be best to look out for the possibility of that happening again? Get a SIM (mines is £15 per month) and a Soundbar 👌.
I have this and encountered that sound issue. They provide the firmware if you email them (they only provide you with the appropriate firmware depending on your issue). It fixed the dip in sound I had and it hasn't returned.
You are correct when ever the sound drops too low especially ambient or atmospheric sound the soundbar cuts out completely. I got in touch with them via email they put me in contact with one of their engineers who told me nothing could be done about it, it was a built in feature, I would avoid.
And no logo on the front.
The update can be obtained from JBL/Harman customer services. I have a bar 2.1 which had this issue and contacted them they provided the update, however my issue was not software based but hardware related and had to send it in for repair where they placed the main board. All working fine now.
