I'm looking for a budget friendly but with a good sound to pair with an iPhone. Any recommendations?
A totally not budget friendly option is the Beats Solo 3... Although it is far from budget friendly, the convenience is out of this world. It has 40 hours of battery life so I only charge it once a week and it charges CRAZY fast! Like 4 hours of bat life for 5 mins, I think? Also, based on some reviews the airpods are also good but based on my exp from my previous 6hr earbuds, it’s a hassle to charge every day.
(Best for an iPhone will be) Anything that has a W1 chip...
I think right now it's either you get the Airpods or Beats.
I Currently use these on my iphone x -
Beats x, powerbeats 3, sony mdr1000x, and apple’s airpods, and previously had the jaybird x2 and x3, and for versatility it will have to be the beats x - above average sound and very durable (not to mention charges via lightning cable). The sony mdr1000x and the second gen of these released recently are the best in sq (sound quality), has active noise cancellation and very comfortable also. It can also be used as wired and the gesture controls are great when outside.
How’s the battery life? Can it last for 2-3days without charging? - Beats X*
well it will depend on your usage bro, but i dont charge mine daily, i use it usually when commuting. What's great about the beats X is the fast charging, a five minute charge gives you two hours, so for those days i forget to charge it a 5-minute charge via powerbank when i'm out is enough for my daily travel
Whoa! That's totally out of my budget. Airpods? not so fond of how it looks.
Currently I'm eyeing on BeatsX but still looking for a cheaper option.
On top of my list! Would you recommend other cheaper options to pair with my iphone X? Is it worth buying jaybird x2 still?
^while jaybird is very popular and at some point became the benchmark for such kind of bluetooth earphones (the "wired" type) i would rank beats X ahead of them both in sound and comfort. That necklace design by beats x is very handy and as for sound, both are good but i find the beats x more tolerable, knowing that bluetooth earphones are a step back in terms of sound compared to their wired counterparts. Do take note that the latest batch of beats since they were bought by apple no longer has that bass heavy sound, it leans more into a more balanced sound, at least when compared to their previous versions. I dont know of any cheaper alternative if you want the beats x, it was just $99 last black friday at amazon so it was a good buy. As far as i know, beats already has worldwide warranty courtesy of apple, at least that's what the guys at powermac told me and from what i read online, but i havent personally serviced one for warranty. The W1 chip is also another plus for the beats X if you have lots of apple devices, really handy
Bose QC 35II Noise-Cancelling Headphones....say no more
agree on this, the bose and sony's offering are unmatched up there in terms of wireless noise cancelling
Maybe indicating other information such as budget, style, etc. will help other users to recommend better devices.
i'm using Bose QC35 and Jaybird X2. I only use Bose when traveling, noise canceling is really good. Wearing it on a regular basis for a long period of time is quite uncomfortable for me, especially outside while walking or at the mall or something, it makes my ear warm (maybe because of the hot & humid weather here). I use the Jaybird X2 for working out. As for sound quality they both sound good to me, but i'm no audiophile.
I'm planning to buy the AirPods for the convenience of connecting from one apple product to another plus its portability and design. But the thing that's stopping me from buying it, is that I already have enough earphones.
Anyway for my recommendation:
If you have a lot of apple products (iphone, ipad, macbook, etc) and if you like its design, go for the airpods
If you workout a lot or have an active lifestyle, go for the Jaybird or the Beats X
If you travel a lot or works in a noisy environment, go for the Bose QC 35
The beats really does have warranty. I bought my beats solo 3 at PMC and one ear started losing audio and I went to their Service Center in SM Megamall. Mine was still under the standard 1 year warranty so I didn’t pay anything and they replaced it with a new one. They said the cause was a manufacturing defect? The replacement is doing well so far! I guess warranty is also a plus for beats, I’m not sure for other brands though?
Budget is 10k and definitely I need to think twice if I can go to 15k max
For the style, it only needs to look good and can be a truly wireless or the bluetooth 'wired' ones.
Seems like most have recommended airpods, but I'm still not convinced on how it looks. Well maybe I haven't seen it personally.
Jaybird X3 and BeatsX are in the same price range so they're on my list.
Currently at only P1,500
Sound quality is great, this headset is one of my best discovered headphone.
Sounds is comparable to Harman/Kardon Soho headset.
This headset will make you think if the Bose, Sony, Beats are really worth their prices.
Where did you get them? Thanks
That will depend on your standard of what “sounds good” ... but if its only 1.5k then that’s definitely good value for money, but let’s not compare them to the bose and sony, especially with the wireless offerings of these two, they are just in a different league...
i was super skeptic about the airpods when it came out last year. but out of necessity (upgrading from a 6s+ to an X) i was curious enough to try out a pair. all i can say is OMG. the experience is liberating. you practically never run out of battery life. super light and comfortable, i can even sleep comfortably in any position with them in my ears.
being NOT an in-ear monitor, it's good for use in the workplace where you need to hear when people around you are calling your attention. the remove-to-pause feature is also a godsend. i also went running with it the other night, it doesn't fall off my ear but i was paranoid about possible sweat damage (haven't researched much yet).
sound quality is average - just a tad better than the bundled EarPods. it's a bit of a step back, especially after being used to listening to music on my FlipEars custom IEMs. but it's good enough for me for day to day usage, and the tradeoff in sound quality is super worth the conveniences that they bring.
edit: i previously used a Jaybirds Bluebuds X before the Airpods. that one is still working perfectly, but just wanted to try the seamless pairing of W1 devices especially since i have multiple apple products.
I own a Bose, Sony and Beats headphone.
You should hear the Remaxü
What model bro? If its as good as the sony mdr1000x then that is indeed a good good buy hehe
