Why are Earbuds so expensive?

Recommended Posts

$ 6 is expensive...if so, I think I've seen them as cheap as 100 bath at Seven and Bic C electronics department.

I have two pairs of Bluetooth headphones

Jabra Elite sport £160 - £200

AKG £150

 

I use a huawei p30 pro outside and a Dell 13 2 in 1 inside....I've never had a problem with bluetooth!

OK if bluetooth was not so unreliable, sadly it's not

I guess that depends on if you buy them for 399.- or 2999.-

My earphones are 10k baht Sony's it's not their fault, bluetooth is garbage

Its the main unit you have that feeds the blue tooth to your headset or speakers thats the issue.  You might want to check and see if there is an update program for your audio and Bluetooth on either your phone or laptop.  My whole condo is set up with Bluetooth from my cell phones, laptop, smart televisions, and Hardn Kardon speakers, as well as my Beats headphones and Samsung Bluetooth earbuds, many pairs, used for listeningto Audible or music when jogging. Never had an issue except when buying a newer unit where the bluetooth programing needed updating.

could be win 10 of course, garbage as well. One day paired but will not connect the next will not connect but still paired. Re start the laptop and usually connects, but then sometimes cuts out

I know that with windows 10 my mouse will act strange when I hook up a regular blue tooth speaker to it, and sometimes that speaker will cut in and out until I delete them both and re-install them.  Seems to be a glitch.

Same here. Win 10 is where I have all my Bluetooth issues, and if I leave it enabled on a PC or Laptop it will create issues with other nearby Bluetooth enabled device trying to connect. So I've given up on my current PC and laptop setups. 

 

Otherwise, other than some transient dropouts, Bluetooth seems to be OK. But just OK. I prefer hard wired connections for cleaner audio.

I use cheap senheiser earbuds when I ride my bike, they are about 2000B - they last for years. They are comfortable to fit under my helmet and the sound is good enough to listen to music and use GPS for a whole day.

 

i would love a pair of decent Bluetooth headphones, probability the Sony’s (Because I don’t like apple white in my ears) I have no problem paying the price, I think the technology in them is excellent but I wouldnt use them enough to warrant paying the price.

 

If you do some reading on specialist sites you can find chi-fi IEMs that produce a reasonable sound. You can use them as is, but most will chose to hack them by swapping out components.

Apple seems to do well with their Bluetooth. Very popular in the States. So good Bluetooth apparently works. 

Apple products are not cheap and they do have a high margin but the convenience and ease of My Apple makes up for it for me. Your mileage may vary.

Probably not an option for the OP so sorry about that. But there has been a discussion re Bluetooth.
