The case would not be very good for portability imo. I am thinking of dust etc..

Either way, both sets seem to get good reviews.



Whoever mentioned they were looking for ones similar to Apples earpods - these may suit - https://www.lightinthebox.com/7-blue..._p5806879.html

Is it just me or do you just get one ear piece for the $8.99 and not a set.

Yeah, scratch that.

You only get one. I looked and scrolled down a little, saw two in the pictures and just assumed.

The FAQ at the bottom clarifies that you only get one.

May be worth editing your original post with a warning in case anyone clicks through and pulls the trigger before reading forward.

They look alright, i might get a pair too. Earhook on the rim is part of the bud, so they must be fairly small.

Edited it there.


I saw a pair that get great reviews, sound etc.. But they look ugly. They look huge, not sure i would want them sticking out of my ear like in the pictures, but i may be viewing them wrong. They get very good reviews, but 30mm from tip to cover . They come with 3 different types of earhook.

I ordered these, due soon enough.

Based on price and a reference to water resistance primarily drove my decision. I dont expect any of these to be greatly waterproof.

I don't have great expectations on them but I'll report back when they arrive. I run twice a week so they'll get a good testing.

I got a decent pair here for €11 including delivery (plenty of choice).....used this site for years......earphones usually die due to rust after a year (from sweaty head) but then you get to choose another......so I usually buy pairs !

Works great as a phone headset too!

I got those too. I think they're a little bit bulky on the ears and the left one falls off my ear during a run (does my left ear sweat more than my right?). That said, they pair really easily, battery life is excellent and sound quality is pretty good too.

Must get a pair myself, but is there anything that lets you connect bluetooth headphones to a non bluetooth device via the headphone jack?

They would need to have a 3.5mm socket, and come with (or buy separately) a 3.5mm male to male cable. Unless Apple devices, which have a 2.5mm output socket afaik.

How do you listen to the radio with wireless earphones as most phones need the earphones cable as an antenna? Or is it a case of using an app for internet radio?

I know how they connect but FM radio on phones won't have the antenna if there is no cable plugged in.
