I've encountered a bunch of MH755 and MH750 earphones--both fake and genuine. Here's a little guide I made to tell if you have the real deal: https://old.reddit.com/r/headphones/comments/kz9uah/whats_black_and_white_and_red_all_over_my_custom/gjnreko/ TL;DR: Fake ones tend to have a large white circle on the nozzle filter, and lack the two characteristic solder dots on the drivers inside the shell.
The black ones tend to be fake. You can tell by shape of ear bud/tip. The ends of the earphone itself (the mesh) The right angled pin. The labels. And/ Or you need to open them up. There's a good you tube video that shows/ explains. A quick search is all it takes. The legitimate ones can also be bought with a Sony bluetooth adapter.
Luckychoice kind of sums it up probably. Doesn’t inspire much confidence at all that what you buy is going to be genuine. Especially at low prices.
A lot of the pictures on this eBay site show headphones with no Sony printing on them? (shock)
I've got one of these. They aren't very good in terms of sound quality. Also one side is weight heavy because of the controller.
Price went up to £2.98 whilst they were in my basket but found some others for £2.49. Can’t believe how cheap you can get a set of BT earphones. Probably not great but at least I won’t be worried about losing them.

Yeah, and if it did drop anymore as an individual unit, I think they would get a lot of returns.
Given the fact it just came out, also, considering the 1st gen was always £60 when on sale, I can't see this at a lower price on Prime Day. If it will go down, it will be maybe by £5 or they will sell it as a bundle.
I see the order via Alexa option end just before prime day. Do people think the price for this item alone will be the same or lower than £84.99 on prime day?
Video calls really. Otherwise, I don't think that's much of an improvement, but I guess £25 more is not that much, but I'm looking for the 1st gen to go down in price.
Yep, you're right, I know it came a few times as a bundle. You may be lucky with another bundle on Prime day.

I have my Shield connected directly to my soundbar (Q600a) HDMI input and then the HDMi output to the projector. I then have my PC directly in to the second HDMI on my projector and then optical out from the projector to the soundbar. The shield direct to the sound bar gives me Atmos from the Shield which you can't get over optical. I assume same set up would apply to yours as I expect it would have input and output too unlike some with just one ARC HDMI
Have a Samsung q90r set up with 5 wireless surround soeakers/sub. Projector would be occasionally use. It has WiFi, Bluetooth connectivity, coukd these be used
By optical only I'd imagine as they usually don't have ARC on projectors
Perfect, ordered! I'm currently decorating our conservatory I've got. The govee music change leds & a zigabee controller to fit into the new led panels Its going to be my rave cave! Do I get a second for stereo pair though?
Interesting. I tried all that and just couldn't get the remote to pair. Maybe it's just as well. I just wanted to use it as a Mic late at night as the mics in the 4th gen aren't as good as previous generations and I didn't want to wake anyone up.
Funny you should ask - I actually can't remember how I managed it. I paired the remote to the 4th Gen echo as soon as I got it and, at the time, was not aware it shouldn't be compatible (ignorance is bliss). When I read about this incompatibility, I went back into the app to try to figure out how I'd connected them; all I can think is that I selected 'Pair Alexa Gadget' and then triggered pairing mode on the remote (I think by pressing and holding the play/pause button for a few seconds) and somehow they connected. In theory, this sounds like a good thing but the echo chimes at random which, I've found out, means that it's having bluetooth connectivity issues. I'm positive the problem is with the remote - if I just pick it up or move it, the echo chimes. So much so, I'm on the verge of disconnecting them (if I can figure out how) as it's quite annoying. Whoever at Amazon decided this functionality wasn't necessary should be fired!
How did you connect it to the voice remote? All my 3rd gen dots have the option but my 4th gen echo doesn't have the option.
Smoking deal, I literally got mine last week for around £66. I am semi tempted to get my mum another one now. The sound is far better than my old 2nd Gen, not just the base, I think it has more clarity as well. But then I am no sound expert, nonetheless I am very happy with it. And with the option to add any Zigbee/Phillips Hue devices, a massive bonus, as I recently discovered that a modem router does have a limit on how many wireless devices that you can connect before it randomly drop them. Heat
Cheaper still (£170.05) through their eBay store (using code PROMO5OFF) ;) (Thanks to @Frank30uk ) https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/denon-dht-s316-21-wireless-sound-bar-ps179-delivered-click-collect-at-currys-pc-world-3746176
Thanks so much for that. It's a really worrying list given the price of these. I had decided I was going to get these over the Bose, however I will probably rethink that now.
The headband slider panels break easily, I don’t think the panels are quite thick enough. The ear cups suffer from popping and cracking sounds, some say it’s caused by condensation from the ears sweating on the ear cup internals but others have these issues with no condensation. The mic isn’t the best, it fails on many headsets causing vibration sounds in the ear cups when you move your head with ANC on, but is fine with ANC off. They are the main three.
In what way are they not reliable?
Great performing cans, but not the best reliability sadly.
I hope they are in good condition, but either way please let us know here. Thanks!

Once you've set up Calibre it's honestly very straightforward to do the conversion. You can leave it running if you are converting a whole library. You can also use the Kobo plug in to customise your Kobo. The last version of Kindle for PC this will work with is 1.24.3 (51068). Once you've set it up, open a command prompt & enter: ren %localappdata%\Amazon\Kindle\application\renderer-test.exe renderer-test.xxx Then it's just a matter of downloading your books from the Kindle program & importing them with Calibre. If you have the DRM plugin installed you then just convert it to epub.
anybody knows how much warrenty on this device from John lewis?
great tip, thanks
Calibre is an antiquated and ancient behemoth that groans with strain most times you run the thing, let alone accomplish something meaningful. Its possible for sure. From my experience though, I would not consider it a 2 minute job if you wanted to convert a kindle library. Each to their own with time vs cost though
It's easy to get Kindle content on these. Basically you use an old version of the Kindle desktop app (Google it) and use it to download the azw file then use Calibre with the DRM plugin to convert it to epub. A 2 minute job.
