    I've got the XS model. Sound leaks like a bastard, though.

    The design and build quality is incredible - as does all their range, you can put them on a wank off they look so good - and they use fantastic drivers but imho they sound like cans on a string. I'm joking, they sound good is tests, but I feel that the fit makes for too much sound pressure in the cup, which is a bit detrimental to clarity. But less gap is one of VM's signature features. I guess the leakage is a backplane aperture to let some of the pressure out.

    EXACT SAME BENEFITS

    Some phones have high quality(relatively) DACS nowadays, but those are the flag ship phones which are damn expensive. Uhm, I was gonna buy a DAC for my computer but then remembered I don't bloody need one lol. Obviously the expensive is much better, the odd sound cloud rap song doesn't need it.

    Ah of course, my mistake. It's been so long since I have been off road I have forgotten it existed.
    I need to get back down the brown dirt track again.

    Fluffer in the porn industry, probably.

    „I believe in socialism because it seems more humanitarian, rather than every man for himself and 'I'm alright jack' and all those arsehole businessmen with all the loot. I made up my mind from viewing society from that angle. That's where I'm from and there's where I've made my decisions from. That's why I believe in socialism“

    „Don't forget you're alive. 'Cause sometimes when you walk around the city and you're in a bad mood, you can think, hey, wait a minute, we're alive! We don't know what the next second will bring and what a fantastic thing this is. This can get easily forgotten in the routine of life, and that's something I'm trying to bring to my attention at all times. Don't forget you're alive. We're not dead, you know. This is the greatest thing.”

    Can anyone recommend a decent set of wireless in-ear headphones? The wired ones that came with my phone have finally bitten the dust so want to upgrade to some proper wireless ones, but I've had a look and there are so many different ones I'm a bit bewildered which to go for.

    But I'm thinking it's a good time to pick some up what with it being Black Friday at the moment.

    I have a Samsung phone so would rather not go with Airpods.

    Bowers and Wilkins P15 and P17 earbuds are tip top ( in my opinion)

    The JVC's packed up a bot ago.
    I thought I'd not bother replacing them, but in the end I miss listening to my prog classics when on the computer so I invested in a pair of Sennheissers HD 280 Pro.
    I'm listening to "Fragile" right now.
    Comfort and great sound.
    I have the JVC phones on the repair bench in the garage, and having watched a few videos on YouTube I am going to have a go at repairing them.
    Look out of the "For Sale" part of the forum for JVC headphones for sale... bargain.

    Price range?? There are allot of choices, however to be able to give you advice need to know a budget. The best are these, Sony WF-1000XM4 https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B095DNPH...ing=UTF8&psc=1

    By far the best from every reviewer, even beating airpods, currently £199 down from £250.

    Thank you gamble. Well I want to buy one pair that will last me for a good few years at least. Don't want to be having to buy another set next year

    So budget I'd say up to a couple of hundred IF they will last.

    They are probably at the upper end of my price range but if good I'd be willing to pay

    I watch allot of tech stuff on YouTube (proper nerd) and they are always coming out on top.

    I have the Samsung buds pro and they're great, currently £149 on Samsung's website, with £70 off. They have active noise cancellation, and ambient sound so you won't have to take them out to talk to people. They also have conversation detector which will auto switch from ANC to ambient if they hear you speak, that is weird but you get used to it.
