I got these SoundPeats ( https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/...?ie=UTF8&psc=1 ) after a recommendation on here. Must say am very impressed. Great battery life due to the charging box, and they stay in nice and snug even when running. I got them cheaper than they are now, so keep an eye out for discounts if going for them.

You may need to use addresspal.

Anyone using these by any chance, look like they would be handy for running and in the gym

I picked up a set of I12 TWS airpod clones locally and tried them out today on the bike. They last a whole 2hrs max! I'd habe hoped for me from even the cheapest of earphones.

Time to go back looking for a set that I'll get 5-6hrs out of.

I was going to order those or these. They look identical but with a 50% longer battery life.

If only you had posted this yesterday! I ordered a pair on a whim last night. Is the sound any good at least? 20 quid down the drain by the look of it

Sound is fairly ok to be honest, as good as you'd expect given he price range. They would be fine for many uses but for me not suitable as recharging on the go isnt an option.

Bought these about a month ago and can easily get 5-6 hours playtime from them. They also have a handy google assist function by pressing the power button twice.

I've taken a chance on the ones you linked to, 25 Euro worth a punt, should be here next week

Got these recently. Impressed by their sound, sound much better than the Xiaomi Airdots I bought at the same time. BOught from Aliexpress and delivery took an age, but worth it in the end

this is due to the Qualcomm QCC3020 chip.

6 to 7 hour earbud battery life is well above average also.

usb- c charging input and also a 2nd charging option with a built in cable to usb-a plugs or laptop.

use addresspal as don't ship to ROI or NI.

Ordered a pair last week from AliExpress with shipping from Poland via DPD. They arrived today and well, they sound very nice indeed for the money. My reference point is a pair of Tiso i5's and the Spunky Beats have a lot more detail. It's early days yet but they seem to represent tremendous value for money. My only criticism so far is that the touch controls can be activated when putting them in your ear and taking them out, which is fiddly but hardly a major issue.

https://www.aliexpress.com/item/4000...18a34c4dU8eaV2 - €22.99

I find the same, the controls face backwards,
