ya, good deal. I bought them for $70 each last time (but came with a "free" HK Astra speaker).

I pair these with a BT AptX LL transmitter to watch tv later at night.
This is RedFlagDeals, not RedFlagCheapskates. Rich or poor, we all want our deals so we can buy even more stuff we may or may not need.

I also have these headphones and they sound great...very well balanced. Bluetooth works without any issues and the battery life has never been an issue for me. An excellent deal at this price!

Got the same deal. That speaker is still in the box...

Do you have a link to the transmitter? I'm always looking at better ways to set up my entertainment system.

Thanks OP, very tempting. Unfortunately it doesn't have any waterproof reading, and I was looking for a pair for the gym as well as office calls. Darn.

Anyone test the mic on these? Good for all of these zoom/conference calls these days?

I've tried about 20 headsets for work from Jabra, POLY (AKA Plantronics), Sennheiser and Logitech and the only one that sounds great to "Others" is:

The POLY UC Focus:

The BOOM Mic makes all the difference and the active noise cancellation (For You and for Others) is Excellent. I called someone from my car at 100 KM/H with the windows open and they said it sounded like I was at my desk.



The one I like the most for Music or for Calls where I don't have to speak much is:
plantronics 8200_uc_stereo.jpg
Both have about 13 hours of battery life and it has Not changed in 2 years of daily use.


And here's a tip, try to Avoid using PSTN (Home Phone or Mobile Phone) when joining Video calls, instead use your PC or MAC. PSTN has a call quality of about 60 Kbps but these headsets and the Video Conferencing solutions can easily do 100 Kbps + (Just to compare a Music CD would be about 320 Kbps.)

Any recommendations under $100? Would these Sennheisers do the trick?

I would go WIRED:
https://www.plantronics.com/ca/en/product/blackwire-700
https://www.plantronics.com/ca/en/produ ... kwire-3300
https://www.plantronics.com/ca/en/produ ... kwire-5200

I use Wired for my Home PC, and Wireless for my Mobile / Work Phone / Work PC.

And I Highly recommend the BINAURAL (2 Ear Models) as the One Ear models can't do noise isolation or noise cancellation.

LOL .... that sounds bad.

The PLT Focus has Noise Cancelling for the Wearer that can be turned off.

And noise Cancelling for the "Listeners" that cannot be turned off. I was only using this one.

Got mine today. Headphone sound quality is passable. The mic is surprisingly decent.

Just out of curiosity and for reference, would anyone know how's this headphone's sound quality (for music listening) compared to the more popular higher end true wireless ones (e.g. Sony WF-1000XM3, Jabra Elite 75t, Apple AirPods Pro, Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 2, etc)?

Does it have mute button? Is this set compatible with Skype / WebEx?
