If it helps anyone.
I went to BB earlier today, they reluctantly agreed to PM but didn't give me the beat it by 10%. I was too tired to argue with them so I just took the headphones and left. I probably will never visit that same location again.

Yeah, sometimes they just got on the nerves, my friend visited and got rejected by saying, CSS have limited stock, that's why we can't do it, well it's a steal , boxing day flyer just came up BB prices for the earphones are $30

I knew it would be difficult because I had checked their stocks before going there, they were the only store that still had both the chromecast and the Marley earphones so they must have turned down many attempts. I reserved both for pickup hoping they would feel bad for denying me both. I guess the guilt trip worked, the guy was very reluctant and said I couldn't return the earphones unless something was wrong with them. Judging by the designs, these are not built for jogging. I probably will wear them around the house instead. Smiling Face With Open Mouth

PM’d at my local BB for $17.99. Picked up 2 (one for my wife and I). Used them today for the first time. They sound great. Bass is adequate for me. Clear mids and highs. No distortion and great quality build. Neck band took some getting used to. Connectivity is a breeze with my iPhone 6S plus. Also connected via bluetooth to my work laptop. Streaming master lossless audio in tidal on my laptop and sound is very clear. Great buy for $20 all in.

Thanks OP!

It's not just about that, it's way easier checking stock at Best Buy locations than rcss locations. And Best Buy seems to have more stock to begin with.
Zoomer: $36 for 4gb data, Unlimited Canada-wide minutes, and a free phone?
Fido: $15 3gb.
Too good.

Instead of buying BT earbuds/headphones, I decided to buy a BT receiver from Amazon.ca that I can use any headphones with and have to admit how impressed I am with this little gadget. It's pretty darn small and has a clip to clip to your clothes and is fully rechargeable and lasts about 6 hours on a single charge. You can even use this to answer your phone with (has a built-in mic) and you can have 2 phones connected simultaneously. Will control the phone as well.

For those curious this is what I'm using,

I have too many wired headphones that I don't want to throw out. This allows me to continue to use them and the sound quality has been excellent.

You cannot compare avantree Bluetooth receiver to house of Marley Bluetooth earphones, both are different brands and both are different things, one is Bluetooth transmitter/reciever and other is earphones. Moreover, theres is around 15$ price difference, i would rather just buy house of Marley Bluetooth earphones that already has Bluetooth transmitter/reciever inside, solve the problem of Bluetooth earphones(no need to buy earphones separately or used old ones), great sound, better battery backup, great customer service, much cheaper

I got this from RCSS Argentia for $19.99 yesterday on no tax day. For $20 it ain't bad. Built quality is good, but sound is lacking. It isn't as loud as I would like. I have the volume on full most of the time. Below 70% volume is too low to hear well. Sound has bass, but not heavy. The mids and highs are clear no distortion at the highest volume. Voice calls are really good for both parties. I can be heard well and sounds like I'm on the phone no differences. Besides the volume not being loud enough, my next biggest gripe with the earphones is no battery indicator. I have cheap chinese bluetooth earphones, which communicate with the phone and reports the battery level of the headphones. These ones don't, the earphones give you a visual (led flashes red) and audio cue when the earphones are low and needs charging. This catches you off guard. Normally when I check my phone and see the battery is at 30%. I proactively charge it before I get into a situation where it's low and I'm out and about not able to charge. Now about the warranty I had a pair of wired smile jamaica's with inline mic & remote, which one side failed. I called their customer support, which are the same people who service homedic products as well. They told me I could mail the defective earphones to them or if I'm in mississauga to drop it off at their location along with a copy of the receipt. At that time I wasn't able to print out the copy of the receipt but the lady at the reception helped me out by having me email it to her and she would print it out. I had to write on the receipt what the problem was and my mailing address. Within a week I got my brand new replacement smile jamaica. Please note like my wired smile jamaica earphones these ones need to be burned in. Sounds flat and garbage on the first listen but about 40hrs or so music playback it gets much better.

You're right. From the review posted above the Marley's aren't even worth the $15. It's worth paying a little bit more and getting something that you can actually use with you current favorite headphones. It's just another option for those wanting one - to each his/her own.

It's not just 1 or 2 dollars. This is more than 50% off and don't assume people are driving around town for it. I knew about this deal before the deal went live and just got it yesterday because I had to go to the mall for grocery and Best Buy was right next to it.

Their very comfortable. Prob not good for jogging due to the neckband which will definately move around and slip off if running. They are sweat resistant; however not meant for intense physicial activity.

I have used mine for the complete day at work (8hours) and battery is not dead or even low as yet. Box says 8 hour battery life but I have tested 9 hours.

Completely disagree. These Marley headphones are well worth the $17.99 that I paid. Build quality and sound quality are excellent. Don’t listen to this guy.
