no problems with galaxy buds. Use them while biking and in the gym. No drop outs.

Got mine after Christmas and use them everyday.
Great noise cancelling, now use them rather than over ear beats. No problem with fit - although preferred the ease of the originals as you have to find the sweet spot with the pro’s rubber “seals”.
Wireless charging a plus.

dumb consumer whore. With your kinda money you could actually get value for it.

Jabra Elite 75T Sports. Best headphone purchase I’ve ever made - multi device and hear through modes are so banging.

Got the navy ones - love them as the logo blends into the background as I didn’t like the contrast aesthetically on the others. Yeah I got lucky - first batch that John Lewis got in stock I managed to pick up pre lockdown on Oxford street

Best Earbuds - but also with a good Mic? Been using my Sony XM3 (over ear) for work calls and the microphone is so so shit.

Thinking of Jabra Elite 75T, Pixelbuds, Samsung..

Need some earbuds and considering buying the Cambridge Audio Melonania 1; Bose Soundsport Free Wireless; or the Sony WF-1000XM3.

Anyone know which out of those 3 is the better option? So far the Sony's have been the one getting the 5 star reviews, but would like a real world opinion.

I have the Sony's. They are great but as they are just a normal bud the fit is not as good as the Bose. I have quite narrow ear canals so they do pop out once in a while which is annoying, I need to give the foam tips again though really. If you can get them to fit properly they are brilliant, especially with the noise canceling. Battery life is great too.

I've heard really good things about the Cambridge Audio once you get a good fit. I'd also throw in the Lypertek PurePlay Z3 True Wireless Earbuds which I do own and definitely rate.

Cheers fellas. I sent an offer to a seller on eBay for £50 for their Soundsports and it was accepted. Now I feel I was too hasty.

Is £50 reasonable price for Soundsports Free Wireless?

Yeah absolute bargain I reckon!

Even if you feel like you want noise cancelation you could always flog those ones for the same price eventually

Over ear for sub £200 with wire, not wireless? AIAIAI? Better options?

For home use or on the go? For home anything by Beyerdynamic. Watch the ohms, you can't drive the 250 or higher versions without an amp.

I’ve got the CA melonania.
They are decent for the price. The memory foam provides a good fit but the foam breaks up/falls apart pretty quickly.
Mic is basically useless and un-useable.
There is drop out but fairly solid connection.

i have a £20 pair from amazon which have lasted for well over 4 years, the sound is good, the mic works and there is no drop out at all. When you say pretty decent for the price which bit is the decent bit?

The sound quality.
Deep and rich sound.
They sit somewhere between the sennheiser 300 and soundmagic 11. But not as bassy as the soundmagic.

I think arguing about sound quality is pointless really. Some people hear it and some don’t.
If you are happy with the headphones you have then that’s great.
