I'm not talking about Bluetooth earbuds, but just the corded type that you can buy from a 7/11. They look cheap and nasty and flimsy as hell, but still cost around 200 baht for the cheapest model. I t

Why are Earbuds so expensive?   Huh?  Expensive, that's a typo, surely, you have missed off a zero, yes?

Never have a problem with it it depends a bit on the device you use.

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

Your bluetooth maybe, sadly, unreliable but that's not the fault of earphone manufacturers (unless you're buying absolute garbage).   I have two pairs of Meizu bluetooth buds, one for the computer and one for the phone and both have been faultless so far (two years).

 

He thinks 200 baht for wired ones is expensive.   

I have 600 baht redmi airdots and they are great. Bought them from the official MI shop on Lazada.

Am I missing something? ฿200, ~$6.50? The headline is why they are so expensive. If this is paeng gern bpai, I'd guess Airpods for ฿6,000 is out of the question.

Don't know how many times I have to say it, but the ones bought at Mr DIY, Big C or 7/11 are expensive for what they are. Same as if you were asked to pay 200 baht for a box of matches, Capiche?

Shopping at wrong places !!! Go online. 

I have bought from Lazada, many, many times, and the corded models are junk and still around 200 baht.

Just bought a Beats Studio 3 Bluetooth wireless head set for 400 Baht off of Lazada.  Have used them now for a week.  Good sound off of my Lenovo Thinkpad, can walk around the house and they stay connected even in the bedrooms.  My Samsung Buds+ ear buds, paid 900 Baht, also work good on the Laptop but are great for under my Helmet when I ride, and both the Beats and Samsung earbuds last for almost all day if I use them constantly.  Spend the money to buy some decent Bluetooth headsets, and earbuds, so you dont have to replace them constantly.  I have a few other brands, that after awhile the batteries only last if I am lucky up to 2 hours.  Handed them off to the kids to use.  The worst ones were the Bose knockoffs I bought, 1 hour and they go dead.  The Baseus Encoks still work great, and I use them when I run or do my long walks.  The original Samsung wired headphones for my cell phone are still good, but then I hate to be tethered to anything.  The LG neckcollar headphones my GF uses have lasted her now for 2 years and she uses them all day long.  If your going to pay a few baht then you get what you get, but if you pay more money and they do not work, well that sometimes does happen.  Unfortunately if you do not buy from a manufacture or a reputable on-line company your chance of getting an exchange or refund after 7 days is almost zero.  Good luck folks.

No doubt they must be original and top quality at 5% of the normal price

There is always the local '20 Baht shop'. Many different models to choose from, some even have volume controls, all for the single price of , you guessed it , 20 baht.

 

Obviously not of the best quality but for listening to ebooks in bed maybe ok.

 

The main advantage is that they are (imo) not overpriced for what they are.

They are reconditioned Beats, bought from a reseller.  Same with the Samsung Buds+, from Vietnam, true factory boxing, not fake repackaging.  You can tell the fake boxes and all.  These have the US package inserts in them and all of the paperwork is the original factory paperwork as well.

An original Beats is 9000 - 12000 Baht on Lazada, but yeah a refurbished one is 400 Baht, and all resellers are from China.🤣🤣

Better change your location on the Lazada bar and select local if you do not want from China, they do sell them here in Thailand.

Thailand or China doesn't matter, You must be brain death if you believe that a 400 Baht Beats 3 is original refurbished.

 

Any way, you lost all credibility long time ago. Didn't you live in the multi million dollar penthouse?
