Bluetooth earphones (possibly on-ear)

Post by dorift » Wed 09 Mar, 2016 7:20 pm

What's decent?
I don't need brilliant, just decent.

I coughed up about $150 or something on over-ear Matrix 2's from the states a while ago, but they're not for me. Over ear cooks my head and actually gives me sore eardrums.
I'd like something that has decent battery life, which I guess means I'd need to lean more toward on-ear. The ones I have now go for something like 22+ hours.
The multitude of cheapies on eBay I guess won't get near that.
Sweet spot would be 10 or so I guess.

Thinking about Plantronics in ear. Anyone got any experience?

Or since I'll use them primarily at home for movies should I just try cheapies? Cables just piss me off

I just got some bose quietcomfort 25's for noise cancelling on planes.

They work nicely!

Also available in bluetooth (but then doesn't have a mic I believe).

Not cheap, but I just used QFF Points.

I also have the QC25's and they are awesome. The noise cancelling is amazing.

That said - they're probably not what you're after Graham. I also have some Senheisser in-ear headphones, but I found they got a bit uncomfortable after a little while.

I also have a pair of these ... xyeZNTRuKk

They are quite good, but they don't "go all day". I get maybe 4-5hrs of audio out of it before they need a recharge. Sound quality is pretty good, but not as good as the Senheissers (that are dual driver), or the QC 25's (which are just awesome.
