Personally, I don’t think low is 65lm. Maybe on a fresh out of the package alkaleak or something, but…

No AAA eneloops, no fresh AAAs, as I typically just burn down alkaleaks that are already losing their oomf on mum’s craplights, but mine looks like 10lm on low and maybe 65lm on high. Frankly, that’s all I wanted.

Anyone wanna throw a coupla new alkies at me and I’ll put it to a better test. LOL As it is, I only get hand-me-downs.

Yeah, it’s odd. All the AAA lights I got, that’s all I use ‘em for.

While we’re on deals, anyone who’s interested, czech out MPOW earmuffs on vipon. I got a set of H17s and saw an ad for H18s, down to 30 from 50. “No vouchers, only a reduced price” that was supposta be 25, but I picked ‘em up for 30. Then that disappeared and they were back up to 50, then still showing 25 but price on Amazon was still 50, buncha weird things going on from one day to the next day.

Cheapers ones (forgot which) were 13.50 with a vipon code.

So… just keep viponning and see if there’s a deal for that day. By the time I’d post anything, it would’ve changed.

How’s the bass on these? I bought the H12 and bass was somewhat underwhelming when using BT. I sent them back.

Pretty good on the H17, even a notch better on the H18.

Was kinda in a hurry to place an order, and this vid from JDA sold me. LOL

There’s a huge difference when using them wired with ANC on vs off. Off, they’re kinda meh, but with it on, they’re a lot crisper and “bassier”.

The “BossHiFi B8“s I got (literally had to look up my order, as they have zero writing or anything on ‘em) sound about as good (pure wired, no ‘lectronix inside) as the ’18s do with ANC on, so that’s pretty good in itself.

The B8s are my goto earmuffs when watching movies and the like. No need to worry about batteries or charging, as long as the area’s pretty quiet.

Anyway, I tried ‘em with Aquatica’s “Deep&Wild” and D4L’s “Laffy Taffy”, both with pretty thumpin’ bass, and they pass the test. LOL

The forum was doing weird things with the link, but I found a workaround. It should be working now.

Naw, it tries to “prettify” plain text.

Eg, “buy some 2×4s at the Work Bench”. I typed two-ex-four-ess and it changed to two-times-four-ess on its own.

Done, tnx!

Needed like 2bux more for free shipping on what was already in my cart. Another set of earmuffs, even if just passable quality, is well worth the 10bux. LOL

Thanks , bought a pair. I don’t know anything about earphones but for $10.59 what the heck. I have been using cheap earbuds with ear muffs over them while mowing and that sounds good so these will probably be at least that good.

Thanks for the heads up, chops728!

I just ordered a MPOW H10 for my sister.

She needed a cheap pair of bluetooth headphones, and is very happy with her current bluetooth MPOW headphones.

I think they'll be worth the ten bucks.  :THUMBS-UP:

I think the extra $10 off is gone already.

These batteries are pretty good also —average out around 2300 mah —the charger works great for the car or mobil

Thanks chops728,

Just purchased the Mpow H10, the $10 off additional from Amazon was still active for me so total $9.99.

Did a quick search of reviews outside of AMZ, most are favorable at a higher listed price.

It seems like most possible issues mentioned would be noticed within 30 days (connectivity, stutter, battery life) and you could return. A few people did mention fragile hinge joints but Mpow took care of most of the complaints.

It appears that $10 off Mpow coupon can be used once per Amazon account, so once you order it, it doesn’t appear any more if you are signed in to Amazon.

I didn’t need it but y’all convinced me to buy the Mpow. Damn peer pressure.

Three tomatoes are walking down the street- a poppa tomato, a momma tomato, and a little baby tomato. Baby tomato starts lagging behind. Poppa tomato gets angry, goes over to the baby tomato, and smooches him… and says, Catch up.

Very interesting — I didn’t feel like making a new thread —besides this thread is for buying things we don’t really need—Right
Price was $25 before it sold out

Amazon just delivered mine and it was definitely worth the $10. I don’t have a jet engine handy to test, but the noise reduction was able to render the air cleaner and computer fans dead silent without noticeably compromising the dynamic range for some pop music over bluetooth. The hinges don’t seem overly weak, so if it lasts a year I’d feel like I got my money’s worth. It also folds up and comes with a decent cloth carrying bag. Don’t know about the battery life yet, but I’ve definitely paid much more for less capable headphones.

Speaking of the H18 vs H10, I watched like 4-5 movies so far, at 1.5hrs on average a pop.

Imagine they might have similar batteries inside.

The H10s should be here on Friday.

I seem to prefer the H20 for TV over all the others I’ve bought (all of them on Vipon) —The H10 seem to play music the best with my Iphone —-The Meidong were complete garbage for $35 and even not worth $10—they went back —- I’ve given all my grand kids and workers from our renovation all my trial and error buys

When I want to listen more accurately — I have several wired pairs — ranging from HiFi Man to Sennheiser—- I am surprised of how much sound the MPOW produce though— $/sound ratio

Yeah, I get the feeling that I’d go deaf if I listened to these at max volume for an extended period of time and they don’t even sound like they’re clipping or cutting back on the bass when cranked up. I can’t believe one of the H18 reviewers said they returned the H10 because it wasn’t loud enough! That guy’s eventually going to be hearing imaginary mosquitos 24/7 I suspect.

After skipping the H12 that I could have got for like $5, I went ahead and pulled the trigger on the H10’s for $10. Do I need them? Nope. But does vodka-me think I need them? Sure! Hopefully they’ll be good for mowing or something.

Mmm, you’d probably have to sharpen them first.

LB, always can be counted on for a laugh. If I have any luck sharpening them, I’ll make sure to disclose my method. Ughh
