[Primecables.ca] Wireless Bluetooth Sports Stereo Ergonomic Earbud Headphone w/ Mic & Volume Control $9.99 ($8.49 until Jan 17 10am EST)

I have been looking to try these out as I've heard great things (for the price of course). They've been OOS for the last couple of weeks.

Use code PRIMECABLES for 15% off to get the $8.49 price. Coupon code valid until January 17th at 10AM.

In Montreal, there's free pick up at metro stations or their warehouse. Not sure what's available for other provinces.

Can you recommend any? These are my first Bluetooth earbuds/headphones. I've been paying some attention to deals but haven't found any widely considered a great product/value.

If your talking Airpods or Pixel Buds then I can't justify saving for that. Seem way overpriced to me.

i just got a pair of these. Have been using them for a few days now and they are quite good. No complaints so far. There was a 10$ off coupon plus 8% ebates. I say wait for any discounts if you can.

I'm using a pair and I'm not sure how I feel about them. The fit is great, much better than several of the Anker/Aukey ones I've tried. They're light, they fit in the ears and they stay on while I go for a jog. The battery has also been a champ, rarely needs a charge. It also has a pretty good bluetooth connection, stutters less than the Anker one I was using before hand.

On the other hand, the sound quality isn't great. It almost sounds a little muffled, and it is quite a noticeable drop in quality from Anker/Aukey. Personally I don't mind, this is the pair I use for jogging so I am not paying really close attention to the song anyways and the rest of the device has been a significant upgrade for me in usability. But that's just for my use case.

Don't buy bluetooth headphones. Once the battery dies, your headphones are trash. Buy a bluetooth receiver. The receiver pairs with your phone (or whatever) and you can plug in any headphones you want to it. If you forget to charge it, you can still plug in your headphones.... your phone does have a headphone jack, right? If the receiver battery dies, you can replace it and keep your nice headphones.

I bought the Besign BK05 - battery life is great, sound quality is OK. If you care about sound quality, get a receiver that supports aptX (like Fiio BTR3).

The Fiio BTR3 also has an amp and DAC built in -- you can save some money and go with the slightly smaller uBTR, which is just the Bluetooth (it does support aptX though): https://www.avshop.ca/recording-studio- ... m_EALw_wcB ($35 vs. $99)

Got these last year @ 9.99 and personally I found them great. When I got the first pair one of the cable wasn't put in correctly in the volume/power button so I could see the wire inside (hard to explain). I contacted primecables and they sent me another pair.

I'm using them right now at work. listening to music on my phone and youtube. I'm sure I'm geting over 5 hours (or more) before I get a notification that the battery is low because I use them more of my work day.

The real deal is always in the comments lol. No, but seriously this is perfect. Now I can use my existing earphones and its Fiio so it probably sounds good.
