Over the years I have bought a few pairs of bluetooth headphones. My favourite pair (Bluedio) finally gave up when the top support snapped, although I'd had a good couple of years out of them at this point. After that I ordered a few at around the £20 price point, but wasn't impressed. The quality was cheap, the charge didn't last, and they didn't last long (the plastic head support broke in every case). Very frustrating. I was loathe to spend too much more, as I use them in the gym a lot and they get thrown in and out of my gym bag, and I could just see myself paying a lot more for what might be a 'premium' brand only for them to break. Oh, in the interests of transparency, I always went for over ear headphones as I can't get on with the in ear ones, and the ones where the band go behind your head instead of over just never sat right on my ears. Maybe I've got a weird shaped head.
I came across these by chance, and to be honest assumed they would be the same as the other cheap ones I have owned. They were actually even cheaper, which made me slightly nervous, but by this point my previous pair was being held together with tape and looked embarrassing, so I went ahead and bought them. I have waited a few weeks before reviewing, and of course things could go pear shaped from here, but I have to say that they are great. They feel really sturdy, arrived in a proper box, with proper instructions (unlike some of the generic pairs I have had in the past), the charge lasts for absolutely ages, and the sound, by my reckoning, is really good. Plenty of bass, no shortage of volume. They're comfortable too - the one slight issue is that when I'm breaking land speed records in the gym (either on the rower or treadmill) then they can slip off, but that is a small price to pay for what is in every other way an absolute bargain.
One quick update - I see that the price is £19.99. I paid £14.99 which was an incredible bargain. I think that at £20 they are definitely still worth the money.
