New Here? This Is The Spot To Introduce Yourself

Hi everyone thanks for letting me join . I’m on a couple of other forums. I’m more into the music collecting , but do love and use various headphones. Started collecting records early 70s. And still collect vinyl, cd, plus still have a large cassette & mini disc collection. Tend to play my music via home hifi , turntable, tape, cd, and audio players like fiio. I don’t do streaming , prefer to have the real thing and do my own files , etc . Don’t know if this is where you supposed to put down your headphones list ? So hi from the UK. Martyn

Hello Andrew. I was looking for a very simple advice on buying earbuds. There are many models online. I tried to post my question , following the rules of the page, but I believe I got something wrong. I will paste my question here. I want to apologize in advance if that is inappropriate. I only owned 1 pair of earbuds ever and i need them for very specific reason. There are members on this page that bought over 20 different models probably. Surely there will be somebody to help. QUESTION HERE :slight_smile:
Hello, I need advice on Wireless Bluetooth Earbuds with HIGHEST POSIBLE VOLUME and stable Bluetooth connection with Windows 11. There are so many earbuds online I just can’t pick the right one for me.

The type of headphone: Wireless Bluetooth Earbuds

My price range is: Under $100 (I will be using them 4-5 hours a week)

I like to listen to: TV mostly Movies, YouTube channels not music. No High music quality needed.

I will be using them for: In my bedroom to not bother other people in my house

Additional: Do not need microphone, Do not need high quality of sound, Do not need high battery life. I only need HIGHEST POSIBLE VOLUME. I bought Earbuds in the past that gradually lost volume level? I don’t know if it is a charging problem, I use them for 2 hours and then charge until next use? I work a sound heavy job and already have partial hearing loss.

You successfully posted your question in the right place, the general purchase advice thread. Someone replied and you replied to him. Why did you think you got something wrong?

Hey thank you. Sadly I didn’t get a good answer what model to buy. Can you please link me to a page on internet where people are discussing headphones and earbuds so I can ska there ?

take love from deepest heart :heart:

I’m 19 years old (in my mind) but my birth certificate states I’m 62 as of 4 days ago. I’m very interested in very many hobbies and collections, but I suppose that headphones are the topic for an introduction here.

In my teenage years my Dad visited a cousin who had the 1970’s mostly plastic Sennheisers. I had no idea that headphones could sound that good and I bought my own pair a few years after he got his. (And at my wife’s request threw them out years later because the foam was shredded) in her defense, it was prior to the web and being able to find just about anything.

Later I got the bug and bought Grado RS-1’s and their matching amp and was hooked. Some more Sennheisers, Oppo, Blue, Beyernamics, AKG, Audeze etc and followed with a Chord Hugo (1), Oppo Ha1, Cavalli Liquid Carbon (anyone have a pdf manual for that?) and countless DAPs. Lately I’ve been fascinated by inexpensive asian gear that performs far above its retail price.

I play guitar, worked as a computer graphics manager for print, now I’m an ambassador for a comic book company? Do concert photography and assist as an engineer in a recording studio. Also interested in coffee roasting, sushi, indian food, movies and music. Cillect modular synths, collect every video game system and this us turning into a autobiography instead of an introduction. Anyone still reading? Glad to be here!
