I went through all the deals late last night specifically for bluetooth "over ear" headphones. A few Blueido deals came up.

Some have a LOT of reviews. I wanted to spend around 100 but I just can't bring myself to pull the trigger on these.

I just don't know enough about the company, can't find any good 3rd party reviews I trust, and there are a lot of complaints about build quality. Lots of things are great for a few months...

I kinda wish I'd pulled the trigger on these:

Have dropped under 60 twice lately... for now I'll keep searching.

Ive been doing the same "research" the past 48 hrs, and learned so much more about BT headphones (this is my first time purchasing a BT "can") and the reputations of various companies, mind numbing! Ive had hesitations on purchasing throughout the day and finally pulled the trigger, now you gave me buyer's remorse! Only for a few moments though, the Mee audio headphones don't have APTx low latency which is a bit important for movie watching.

Also, interesting is Mee Audio have verison 3 out yet their second version is selling only $20 less, I guess bc the specs arent all that different. These are a lot better for travelling, low profile compared to most competitors.

I bought the Bluedio Victory and Plantronics BackBeat Pro for exactly the same price so Ill see which one wins out

Let me know what you think of these. I wish I would have seen this deal, but I did pull the trigger on the $149 Bluedio U Plus pair that was on a lightning deal not long ago. Supposed to be the same speakers but different design. Also ordered a pair of Audio-Technica ATH-WS99BT Solid Bass Bluetooth Wireless Over-Ear Headphones and I currently have a pair of Beats Studio 2's that I just got for just over $130 so I am going to have an in-depth 3 way comparison and will keep the winner and the other 2 go back or on Craigslist.

I have been hesitant too to buy the Bluedios too. After reading all the good reviews, I finally took the leap and ordered a pair of the Bluedio UFO's about a month ago and when I got them there was no tension on the headphones and they would fall right off. The sound was good but with the lack of tension and the fact that they did feel cheaper than other headphones I have, I sent them back. Upon my better judgement, I ordered the U Plus phones today on a lightening deal so we'll see if those are any better. I really want to find a great sunding pair of BT headphones so I'm willing to give them a second chance except this time I'll be comparing them to a pair of Beats Studio 2 BT and AT Solid Bass BT headphones. Can' wait to see which one is best.

Didn't mean to cause remorse! Appreciate ya starting this thread for discussion purposes.

Backbeats weren't on my radar... they are now... thanks.

Wish ya luck... please shoot me a PM or post on here after ya make your comparison if ya can. Interested to see what ya think!

I'd get the over ear bluetooth senn's in a heartbeat if I could justify 400 on it.

I won't use enough for that... just when I travel and in hotel.

Using that kinda scratch for a new gtx 1070 instead Stick Out Tongue

what about these bad boys?

SD is blocking your link? I was about to reply to you, when I noticed in the reply box is the entire link! Yeah, we are of the same mind, these were on my shortlist if the other two for some reason go bust. They have nearly 900 reviews with 4.3/5 stars means a lot. You will likely be happy, Im afraid to say maybe happier than I with my purchases since these are nearly $40 cheaper and have a good chance at a similar user experience.

Just like you were saying, Im out of town, in a hotel until late next and wont be able to touch the two headphones until then, still working my JVC's nc250 from 2011 that are literally decaying onto my ears!shake head

Ive been doing more research and the backbeats pro have pretty dahm good reviews on audiophile sites when comparing to the heavy hitters in similar categories. Nearly nothing on the Victory, so really interested on how they fair, but developing a real concern on quality with Bluedio products period. Im sure quality control is still an ongoing problem with Victory so Ill be super critical when inspecting them next week. Anything subpar will result in them going back in the box, not risking having $120 headphones become disposable in a few months and not covered under warranty due to "normal wear and tear" BS.

Take care

Hey, I have 2 pair of the Victory model. The sound is fantastic, the build quality is great. As far as warranty is great (18 months). I have bought several different models from Bluedio and have not been disappointed.
