    Wanted to try a pair of earbuds as an alternative to my Bose QC35IIS, particularly for walking around in warmer weather. Got these for about £22 on promo on Amazon a month ago - very impressed with the sound quality and once in my ears, they donít fall out:

    Yeah I like them. I go with the Bose QC for the serious work on planes etc but the pros are excellent. Noise cancelling is really good and they are now a very good all rounder.

    Honestly you can get better for your money.

    Sony do a fantastic pair for about 30 40 quid cheaper and they look less plastic.

    If it's on ear or over ear then for me it's Beats Solo 3 wireless, had a pair for just over 2 years now, the sound is punchy clean and easy to control. Only downside is they are a bit tight on the ears after a couple of hours.

    I can't say I'm a big user of headphones or buds, mostly I use them when flying to cut out the noise of screaming brats!

    I've got a pair of Bose QC15 headphones, they're wired.

    While shopping on Amazon for replacement ear cover things I discovered a Bluetooth attachment for about £35. Now its fitted you'd hardly notice it was there to look at and weighs next to nothing. I'm no expert on these things but I'm not noticing any difference in quality.

    Its a new lease of life for them.

    Iíve got the original airpods and I would buy another pair in a heartbeat.

    Guy I work with had the originals and now the pros and he says theyíre not massively different but theyíre still obviously very good.

    The pros are very different. They now have some inbuilt noise isolation because they use the rubber ear inserts. They also have noise cancellation which you can also adjust to turn off or have a pass through so you can hear whatís going on around you.

    The sound quality is also much better and nearer my Bose QCs.

    One downside is that there arenít any volume controls on the buds. You can ask Siri but it means if you are connected to say a TV as opposed to your phone you canít control the volume. That can be an issue as TV remotes often donít get the headphone volume high enough.

    Cheers. In that case I might consider them myself!
