I got the Meizu's.

No wires is GREAT (especially while charging) , my extended battery case doesn't have a big hole for the 3.5mm jack, so I got these for now. And pack quite a punch for the small size they are.

 

Nice packaging, comes with 3 different sizes of rubber covers and a small micro usb cable for charging.

 

 

 

Would recommend if you're looking for bluetooth headphones that sound good at not a bad price!

Might I suggest some Superlux HD-668 B headphones.. They can be found around the US$40 mark.

If you can spare the extra $20 then these: MEIZU EP51 - very good for the price.

 

 

 

 

Quite interested in something like this...  Just wondering how long you've had them, how often you use them and does the "anti-sweat coating" work?

PBTech had the Meizu EP51 on discounted a bit last week (Thursday's Night Market I think) so I grabbed a pair. Arrived this morning. Not bad sound for the price. Range is a little shorter than a pair of Plantronics BackBeat Fit I have, but the sound seems better.





Keep calm, and carry on posting.

How much were they discounted? I'll have to keep an eye on them :)  Still curious if any of you have given them a good test vs rain\sweat\etc and how they hold up. I'm looking for some gym\running headphones so they will take a bit of punishment.

Not much of a discount. I think $65 with freight. Only used once, and they seem to have survived the sweat so far. Didn't fall off with running up 30 flights of stairs. Will see how today goes with lawn mowing and more exercise later.




Keep calm, and carry on posting.

The Meizus are on sale again at PB this weekend, so I think I might pick up a pair. 

 

@Stu, @Yabanize, @michaelmurfy, are you all still happy with them? :)

Yes!

The battery lasts about 6 hours I think? However I charge it most days to avoid disappointment

I have a decent $50 Phillips headphones and they have done alright for me as i don't want wireless headphones and i hated change when i first got a pair :P (granted i have broken at least two of them) Don't know if they still make them mainly cause i got them from DSE back in the day, only pro/con with them is the ridiculously long cable length however its a good thing and a annoying thing depending on your setup, decent sound imo esp for 50 bucks!
