I went into Maplin yesterday, everything was reduced to clear and I still couldn't find anything that would be considered a deal. :|
All Earphones Discounts, Offers and Sale - April 2018
Oh sorry, I forgot ranting about nothing in particular for no real reason at someone trying to help is a sign of great serenity. My bad.
That's subjective really. I tend not to start with "lol" when I'm upset. I'm sure there are other places you can troll. Nice chatting to you though. <3
You sound upset
Lol. Just cause you were born to a sixteen year old school drop out doesn't mean we all were. Not all granddads are in their 30s like yours. I just appreciate music where lyrics actually meant something
RUBBISH. first time I used it (3 months after purchase) on air plane plug them in and the cable on the left ear is loose and sounds either dead or crackly and you have to hold the wire in a certain position for it to work. amazon didn't give a monkeys neither did seller despite the 12 month guarantee
Anything above a mid-volume- No!
Can you hear outside noise though? Like cars? I'm after some that will be good for cycling.
For those of you who were wondering like me if the reviews were fake, they are mostly genuine: https://reviewmeta.com/amazon-uk/B017I9CBPC
I have these (i think, or a similar model) bought for a similar price from Amazon about a year ago. only use them at the gym First 2 weeks they were amazing, then for about a month they were playing up, anytime my arms would pass my neck, for example Lat pulldowns, Shoulder presses etc my sound would stutter or jump/stop completely. No idea what would cause it and it used to annoy the hell out of me, then out the blue it just stopped doing it and hasnt happened for a very long time. Hold their charge quite well too.
Thought it was absolutely typical, just bought these Monday on a daily deal - but that's the newer model, although I can't see many differences other than a different in-line control and a claimed 8hr battery life vs 6hr on these. To echo some comments from above though, although they do come with a variety of interchangeable buds they all have the ear hook on, so if you don't want these for sport you might want to look elsewhere. The SoundPEATS Q30 are the same price (as the newer TaoTronics) and come with a load of different buds with and without the hook. I swapped mine with some I had on a pair of unused wired headphones and am fairly happy with them now, but it can be a little awkward to achieve a tight seal. Once you've got that though they do sound very good, somewhat surprisingly.
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.
Had to return mine, kept needing to pair from scratch every time I wanted to connect.
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.
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.
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.
5kg on each ear? (cheeky) :D
anyone use these for cycling?
They were Sony ones I had the problem with!. It was the shape/size of the headphone in my case that was the issue. This is fixed and cannot be changed. There were silicone pieces also but these made no difference as the main piece was just ‘too big’. No one else wanted them either as they wouldn’t fit in their ears!
Stop buying cruddy ones, all in ear ones ive purchased (sony/sennheisers) have 3 sets of silicone pieces to accommodate different ear sizes, goes for the cheap xiaomi ones that get posted on here (i believe) aswell,
Yes. I found the same with other makes also. Completely useless due to their large size. And quite often you don’t find this out until you gave opened the sealed packaging (are out of the shop) so you can’t take them back either!. Maybe they are not for purpose...however I guess they must fit someone so you probably can’t go down that road either!. So frustrating. I’m sure manufacturers are aware of this but you have given them your money by then & it’s too late!
Buy yourself and you will have a proof.
Bought these from hmv at 3.99, they are massive, won’t fit in my ears or any of my family so binned them. would be ok if you had a set of rugby players ears..
Can you confirm where? I can't find them.
Yes for £28 a month assuming you get all the cashback. For example you can get a LG V30 or Huawei P20 Pro for less. The XZ1 was a big miss by Sony.
And still has headphone jack vs xz2. I think this is a good deal :)
What 6 months?
That's an old phone bro!
I’ve just got this phone, really like it, also getting a free ps4 with it, that applied to the first 1000 customers who preordered it.
Lots of free Bezel included as well . Display port altenate mode , direct connection to TV or monitor does not work on Sony phone s.
Yikes price gone up.will expire now thanks all
Not sure why these started cold. I have a pair and they are really good. It takes some time to break them in, but they have a very interesting sound signature and they are quite robust (I have been using them for running and gym and anything in between). I have much much more expensive IEMs and yet I find myself using these all the time. On the negative side, the eartips are not standard and may not be to everyone's liking. I have had the next model (EP52) which use standard tips but they only lasted a couple of weeks.
Better than the Anker / Taotronics offerings from Amazon? Anyone with experience of both, please comment
I've had these for over a year and they are awesome for the price! Have some heat!
Mic quality is terrible. Good price though for the gaming set + earphones.
Are these any good?
A headset and some earphones. Good deal.
Looking good (y)
Arrived today, excellent quality & sound. Very surprised.
Looked pretty suspicious to me too
What other Noise Cancelling Earphones do people recommend if these are no good then ? Thanks

Mrs Witch / Mr Switch has it all worked out eh.!(y)
Jesus christ talk about an overreaction. Like I said, I made a suggestion that would make it easier to use the site. Nothing more. Cry all you want about other stuff but that's all I was doing, take it or leave it.
Reread your comments...that's what you were moaning about. You wanted to make things easier for yourself and you were being a lazy pos, so sort your life out and get over it.
What was I moaning about? I just made a suggestion that would make it easier for people to use the site, jesus christ.
(popcorn) and i agree!
He hunts pellets for us instead of deals, the money is better.
apparently not.ive brought a pair happy with the nearly new ones just re packaged for that price.thanks switch (y)
Hey crazy hot
Ordered, cheers. Needed some of these for the summer. The on-ears ones will be too hot
I've had two pairs of Bluetooth Anker headphones, and one wireless mouse... All three failed within 3 months. On the plus side, customer service is good - just leave a negative review on Amazon and they'll come running with replacements in hand.
Macs do, android generally does. aptX is a worthwhile upgrade over SBC for users on those platforms.
Can’t really see the difference between these and the other set? iPhone doesn’t support aptx so probably could save the extra £2??
