This is the pair I've actually got and it's has aptX - https://amzn.to/2Ql3LPW
any recommendations for 'true wireless' in ears? I'm wondering if any on the budget-ish end are really worth trying....
Just bought a pair of vava (taotronic) moov28s. I think these and the ankers upthread, and probably some others are pretty much the same. Far as I worked out the models work like this:
Taotronic 17.99 pair; long battery life (9hrs) but sdc
Taotronic 18.99: 7hr battery but aptx
Taotronic 24.99: ‘upgraded’, 8hr battery aptx
Vava moov28 25.99: 9hr battery aptx
I think the vava may be a little bulkier, though they’re still pretty comfortable. Long battery was important for me. I’m kind of surprised by the short battery life on some of the collar types. Vava looks like everything is in the bud, taotronic it may be in the controller, don’t have it. But either way you’d think sticking them in a collar could give you at least double.
Sound is good enough. I also have shure se215s which are, unsurprisingly, a lot better. But also less convenient... they’re better than default apple earbuds, but I also hate that kind of earphone, so biased. I don’t have other cheap wired phones for comparison.
These seem to be very positively reviewed
TaoTronics Active Noise Canceling Headphones 2019 review: Better than ever
I have a pair of these
I think they are fantastic. 3 hr battery life, they come in a case which will charge them 4 times, the sound is great as well.
If you don't mind the wait for postage they are a lot cheaper here.

Three hours isn't very much at all.
Absolutely fine for my uses, I've only reached the end of the battery once, on a 3 hour coach trip.
I've used Sennheiser for years, not as expensive as that though.
I've seen this brand reviewed and are cheap with a good battery life.
My mpow’s last 8 hours. According to the blurb. Never had to play that long in one sitting.
Lidl have cheap ones for £13 at the moment. I only really use them for audio books, so don't know how good they are for music.
Jabra Move Wireless Bluetooth On-Ear Headphones - Black https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00NHSFWG4/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_O4OzCbJKGZVJZ
I've got these. I think they were 30 quid in sale maybe a year ago.
8 hours battery. But if they are switched on and not playing they don't seem to use any battery. I've often used them all day at work, accidently leave them switched on over night and they're still going in the morning.
No battery deterioration yet, a year in.
Comes with a standard jack cable if you ever need such things.
The one annoyance I've found with wireless headphones is the over keen alert to the power running low.
Oh god that drives me mad, I'll get half an hour that is all I need to get home ruined by an annoying jarring beep every 30 seconds that puts me on edge.
On my headphones it's also the bloody bright blue led that that makes me look like a Christmas tree.
I convinced work to buy me a pair of these They are pretty good. Having to get used to the sound though, they are only BT4.1 and the headphones let in all sorts out outside noise, but they are ok for the office, and they mean that I can listen to tunes, if a call comes in it reduces the volume, works as a headset then music comes back when the annoying disturbing person goes away and I can go back to listening to tunes again.
They are not as good as my Blitzwolfs though, the sound on those is much better. The logitechs don't fold up either so not really all that convenient but good for the office.
Any help? https://inews.co.uk/ibuys/tech/best...s-over-on-ear-noise-cancelling-wired-reviews/
My trouble appears to be keeping them in place and you
Do you reckon you can lie down with these on without them being massively uncomfortable? My mum wants some to wear listening to the radio in bed. I know you can get some which are like headbands but she wouldn’t like anything around her head like that.

Good review in Which and I'm very happy with them,
How about wireless in ear ones? Without any wires? I saw a pair for £50 and want to get them for the same reason.
Ooh interesting! She currently uses plug in ones I think so those are a real possibility.
BristolEcho thanks for suggestion but I don’t think she likes in ear things. She’s a bit weird and fussy (she’s 87 tho so I guess she’s entitled to be!)
As it happens, I got bought some blue tooth headphones recently. I had to buy a thingy to get them to work with my ipod. The thingy has arrived, but I'm a bit pissed tonight, so may try them tomorrow.
Yes you can, wiskey does with hers, they are tiny so only have a 3hr battery life and an annoying beep when they are running out of battery so not great to fall asleep to.
I find that just sticking the phone under the pillow is fine
