Anyone bought the P180, P190, H190, or K180 earbuds?

I bought the H180 earbuds off AliExpress a while back for like $10 and while they're fairly good, I've found other Chinese earbuds in that same $5-20 price range on AE to have a more fuller soundstage if that makes any sense.

I bought W800BT( from Edifier) and W800BT (from Amazon for $69+tax) , both are awesome thinking to keep both. I use Fire TV stick it has bluetooth, so my TV to headphones is now wireless

The bass is booming, the mids are good and the highs are good. This isn't the incredibly crisp, experience-changing level you may want from a $1000-$2000 setup, but this is a great setup for a budget theatre experience, and probably the best thing you can buy at this price point. Also of note is the convenient bluetooth of the R1850DBs, which I use a couple times a week. The bluetooth makes it easy to switch from listening on the TV to firing music from my phone.

I bought this for $150 used. Knowing how much I've enjoyed them for the past 16 months, I'd buy these for $150 new without hesitation.

I have just set up the R1850Bb and found out that pushing in the 4 pin interconnect cable for the two speakers was quite hard having to align them properly but once I started playing my flac music files on this via bluetooth, it is definitely worth $150 +tax and comparable to my Audio engine speakers

For reference I'm comparing the sound quality from the R1850DB/12"sub to a pair of Denon AH-D9200 headphones.

That's actually a very legit question. While the sound quality is better than entry level tower speakers and the sound stage is very similar. Using powered speakers for a 5.1 setup will be a bit of a hassle. Assuming you use a regular receiver (amplifier) as the decoder, most receivers do not have line level output (think your headphone signal) to powered speakers. They only come with speaker output which are meant to 'power' or 'drive' the speakers.

How do the P12's sound? Do you like them?

Not as much bass as the Advent floor speakers they're replacing but still great sound. Good enough to provide nice ambient music for the living room space where I'm using (approx 25' x 20').

I've been looking for a pair of speakers for my studio. I picked up the R1010BT. Cheaper than Amazon. Thanks!

I'm sure you are not expecting as much bass from a small bookshelf setup anyway.

Just ordered the R1850DB for my desk since I'll be working from home for the foreseeable future. Wanted the Sonos One but thought this was a better value.

Wondering if anyone has connected a Chromecast Audio to these and if that works better than Bluetooth on these?

Bluetooth works fine... you won’t need any third party dongles
