I have already covered the answer to “is it safe to buy from Aliexpress” a few weeks back.
Awei ES800M are quite possibly the best earphones that $6 can buy, and you don’t even have to leave your couch to buy them (well, maybe except for getting your credit card, unless you are an online shopping addict like myself, and you remember it by heart).
I’ve had a lot of earphones for under $50 – sony, panasonic, skullcandy, and I can say that Awei ES800M are the most impressive: crispy clear bass (I do enjoy a healthy dose of low frequency drum&bass as a part of my daily routine), remarkable sound quality, attractive packaging and extra accessories. The box has a hologram, and inside you have a carrying pouch, 2 extra earbuds (one smaller and one larger than the ones already installed), and a plastic clip to attach the earphones wire to your clothing. They come in a variety of colour options – see them here.
The Awei ES800M retain the sound quality and do not make the “farting” sound when played at high volumes (unless you are listening to death metal at the maximum). Unlike the old generation Apple earphones, the shape of the earbud is closed; and, as such, the membrane is not large enough to reflect the sound from your inner ear to make the sound tremble. The wire is flat, which makes it more difficult to pile up and make a mess. My only caveat with these earphones is that the Left/Right marks are the same colour as the body or the earbuds, which makes it a bit hard to know which goes in which ear. But that’s a very minor problem in my opinion, and can be easily fixed with a tiny drop of paint or a small piece of tape on one earbud.
As per the item description, the earphones are RoHS-compilant (Restriction of Hazardous Substances Directive) and CE-certified.
Overall, these earphones are a great buy for the money. They would easily sell for $20+ in stores, and I would still not be disappointed have I paid that much for them.
