Wireless headphones

Post by Pyrrho »

Trying to find something that works with a laptop. Everything I'm seeing is for phones or tablets. And most of them are weird brand names like DONGLBEAT, VOIBAR, etc. Or they cost over a hundred dollars and I'm like, what?

Soundpeats.

Pair over bluetooth with Mac and even PCs.

Actually has customer service if things are not working.

Any bluetooth headphones tend to work. Mine cost $10 from ebay three years ago made by Noy See Fuk. Even after a trip through the washing machine they're awesome.

Thanks. I had bought a device from ICOMTOFIT on Amazon. Paired okay with the laptop. Earphone worked but the microphone didn't. Returned it as defective. Not inclined to buy another one.

They've gone up in price a little. Probably after some dipshit discovered the case is water resistant.

It seems that the problem was not the device I bought, it was that I was pairing it with a Windows laptop, and Windows has never fixed the problem with Bluetooth microphone volume. Some of the Microsoft staff suggestions to fix it are epic failures. As one might expect.
