Apple will be announcing wireless buds next month. Will most likely be the same performance as the beats though.

That was years ago. BeatsX are very decent and have the Apple W1 chip.

I’ve had enough of these shitty £6 lightening converters breaking after a month so thinking of doing what Apple want us to do and buy the AirPods.

What’s coming out next month? Airbud?

Seriously can’t keep up.

Thanks for the info. I’m assuming there’s a new model coming out as they are on sale everywhere at the minute.

If anyone is in the market for new earphones/IEM I would tell them to take a look at what China has to offer. Can't be beaten for price.

or just buy a pair of Soundmagic E10 for 35 quid in Richer Sounds. Best bang for your buck going.

Chinas got fucken bullshit, fuck off

Always go fucken US of fucken A or the fucken Nips for fucken anything…

USA had fucken Truman and now Trump. THe Nips? They had Sony and Matsuhita Denki and the fucken Urahara USA gear improvement front. Fuck that's enough for me..

EU can fucken suck my dick by the way

EVERYTHING good comes from USA. Innovation. Haven't you fucken realised yet? USA breeds innovation. Socialiasm breeds stagnation and stagflation. Fuck Socialism.

Replaced my 21 year old pair of HD25s with a new pair from here, 6 year warranty as well for £5.

just bought some AirPods.


Am I missing something?
The sound quality is awful.
It seems to be decent inside, in a silent environment. But as soon as you take them outside they are awful. Can barely hear anything. On the tube they are basically pointless.

I'm not expecting studio quality headphones but these are really shit….

No difference from the free headphones you get with the phone once you step outside. Why are people paying £160 for them?

The same holds true for EarPods, and these are wireless EarPods.

The sound really isn't that bad but they don't seal.

Got a pair recently as well and can't agree more.

As worse as those included with a new phone outside, plus I don't know why I was expecting to be able to control volume directly from them, which clearly you can't…Oops Laughing out loud

Only positive note got gifted them, otherwise Evil Fascist!

How well do they stick in your ear?

I'd be terrified of stumbling and firing them into a drain.

I had them and got rid for that reason. Got some Beats X as my brother had a spare pair he won at work and they are 100x better IMO
