saw some wireless earpiece collection on ezbuy... Quite a big collection, they have the cheap no brand kinds and also the premium types like JBL, Audio technica etc. The cheapest i saw was $5+ and it looks like a replica of Apple Airpods. Skeptical about the quality but good to buy and use as a gift i guess.

My wife got this one from Taobao for RMB20 (usual price RMB30). I told her this must be a rubbish. But in the end it is much better than what I expected, similar to the original Apple lightening earpod she is using, okay, maybe slightly worse, but probably because of Bluetooth.

I still do not use it though, prefer to use slghtly better ear phones than Apple ones, like my Sony MDR-100AAP (my most expensive one, highres certified) headphone and Audio Technica CKR50iS and CKB50 earphone, Chinese brand UiiSii DT200S earphone (HiRes certified) with USB C adapter on my Huawei P20, or directly with my old iPhone 6S.

I have QQ Music and XiaMi Music VIP subscription for there not-Super-high-quality lossless audio. I also have access to free Stingray music as part of SingTel Circle benefits but never used it before — just activated it recently. I am mainly listening to Cantonese and Madarin pop songs.

UiiSii DT200S, known as BA-T8S for the international model
https://m.tb.cn/h.eEFk9Kw?sm=913435

Bought about two years ago at RMB159, not bad for its price, high-res certified, now cost RMB199.

Triple driver earphone with a hybrid configuration of 2 dynamic drivers and 1 balanced armature.

But the sound is too warm to my like. I like my CKR50iS better.

My other one is CKB50 which is probably a low end one but a bit unique with a single balanced armature— seldom use it. I bought it to taste the BA side since I liked my friend’s Sony XBA-300AP triple BA driver earphone but it was pricy.

I salute you.

Unlikely Jaben can fix or replace for you.
