Just received the Mpow M5s, sound quality is great for budget headphones and it has Qualcomm's aptx technology.

Are they nfc compatible, and do they have those little triangle bits that hold them in place while exercising etc?

Not NFC compatible - Bluetooth pairing, but once paired they always connect instantly once you've brought them out of the case.

No, they have 3 in-ear foam tips small-large. I've personally never had an issue whilst training or running with in-ear buds.

got them, I'm no expert my any stretch of the imagination but sounds pretty good to me, the noise cancelling seems to work well.

They are very good. Not quite on a par with over the ear noise cancelling but definitely pretty good.

Bought these as they had no branding.
Everything else has shit 'gamer' logos on it, and I had some good headphones from the same brand a few years back.

Can't believe how good they are for £20, massive recommendation:

Yup I've heard good things about these too, I'm going to purchase as backup. They can be had slightly cheaper (around 50%) via eBay, gearbest etc if you're willing to wait a week+.

Search Google: tws xiaomi

Hm yeah but careful as there are some even cheaper crappy clone ones knocking about being sold for ~£10.

I couldn't be arsed to work out what was legit on eBay.

The ones I got on Amazon are $21 on gearbest, so essentially paid about 4 quid for laziness/next day delivery.

Edit: it's now on sale at gearbest for £13 shipped

LOL branding in English speaking markets.

If you can survive the wait you can get them from China for half the price. The model is a year old now though and there is other Chinese brands putting out good stuff.

I've just bought a pair over in America and used them for the flight back. They sound much better than the AirPods and they do work pretty well. They are the first pair of in ear NC headphones I've used so have nothing to compare them too but I couldn't hear the engine at all with the volume set at 60% - they aren't as good as the XM3's though which I fully expected.

They worked out about £200 over there, not really sure if they are worth the extra £50 considering the other options available but I will be using them with multiple devices and the easy switch between them was what sold it for me.

They just released the T4 which is better according to all reviews so far.
