    Hello OzBargainer!

    Good Price but let down by no AptX or AptX HD which is prerequisite for me now with my Pixel 2 (but nothing else available with those features in this price bracket yet)
    Specs from website:
    Bluetooth v3.0 A2DP 1.2, AVRCP v1.5, Wideband audio HFP v1.7, HSP v1.1
    Standby time Up to 14 days*
    Audio HQ custom SBC codec, 6 mm custom dynamic drivers, Frequency response 20-20,000 Hz, 20 db passive noise reduction, Total Harmonic Distortion <3%, sensitivity 102 dBspl/mW @ 1 kHz

      Bluetooth 3!

      aptX isn't the biggest loss, but it doesn't have AAC either, instead it's got a custom HQ SBC one… oh dear.

    probably be a great Birthday/Christmas present for the kids/teens, but if you are getting a pair for yourself maybe wait…we are in a weird period where BT5 is available but nobody is releasing BT5 headphones…its only time, maybe 2019?

    hmm review looks decent. any other ozb owners can give feedback?

    •  

      Check out the KZ IEMs (available on Gearbest, Aliexpress etc.) and you will never look back.

      •  

        there are many models, which one you recommend? my priority is long battery life dont care much about sound quality.

          You just need to buy a separate bluetooth adapter module made by the same company which is compatible with most of their models.

          I personally recommend the KZ AS-10 (they come with 5 balanced armatures)

      Low quality,bought from ebay before,price $105,can’t fit my ear,broken in one month,my experience.

      By the way,you can buy Comply ear tip to fit it(around USD $40,3 pairs with shipping fee),and the charger bag only can charge Plantronics headphones,can’t charge other device,for example Phone.

      I have these, and despite previous posts of this model getting slammed for "no bass", I find the sound good, much much better when being pushed in by my beanie, but maybe I need to change the tips. That said, every time you skip a track it announces the change, not just a beep, really annoying and slows repeated skipping if needed. Given the option now I would have bought another BackBeat 2. Listening to an audiobook I got 6+hours, but music will drain faster, especially if you push it's amp rather than use source volume control.
      I recently bought the SoundPeats QC30+ - stays in better, sounds better easier (no holding), and honestly the only benefit I find of the Bb's over the SP's is the SP control unit is heavier and can swing/bang when you walk, whereas the BB's charge is at the ear piece so the controller is lighter. QC30+ cable is quite thin, prone to tanglling, maybe the QC36 flat cable would solve the tangling and swinging.
      Hope this helps.

        I bought some HTC BT earphones to make use of the advanced BT technology of the HTC One a few years ago. They had a flat cable with a rubbery finish but anything touching or rubbing the cable gets communicated to your ears as a deep rumbling noise (sounds a bit like tapping on the exterior of an ear bud while you're wearing it)
        I don't no if that's the case with all flat cables or if it was the textured finish that was the culprit.

    Still love my Backbeat Go originals after a number of years now. Might get these as a backup for that price.

    I hate when this is advertised as a "wireless headphone with charge case" but there is still a wire connecting them!!

    Bluetooth sports headphones are what they should be called, and save the "wireless" for those that are actually wireless.

    Save your money. Go for apple airpods.

      I own several stereo wireless Bluetooth earphones. The best of them all are in-ear connected with a cable, just like the BB Go (got them too). They are extremely convenient, as I leave them hanging around my neck when I'm not using them to listen to music or talk over the phone. Wenn the phone rings, I just pick the right earphone, put it in my right ear and accept the call. I've been using them for years this way and I love it. BB Go isn't bad for music either. The only problem is battery life and quality, as it gets were over time.

    due to bad reviews - around $30 i will gamble and buy
