Decent Ali Express non-watch items

Hi everyone,

Please bin this if it's a duplicate thread somewhere. If not, as we know Ali Express can be hit and miss for watch related stuff (e.g. watch straps), but also other crap.

I regularly browse Ali Express for some bargain stuff. And quite a few times I'm pleasantly surprised of the quality for the price.

I'll start... https://s.click.aliexpress.com/e/bUXimy4s

I've been wearing a canvas belt with a metal buckle. The one I was wearing was getting old and had plenty of sharp-parts. I found this one - the quality of the nylon/canvas is terrific, plenty of colour options and the buckle is industrial strength and feels absolutely solid. I was so impressed I bought 3.

Got any stuff you've recently purchased from Ali Express that's a great price and worth sharing?

I bought some $9 Bluetooth headphones off WISH. They're actually decently loud and work as advertised....but damn are they cheaply made. And yes, that's why they're $9.

Nice! What is the sound quality of those Haylou GT1 wireless earbuds?

I'm keen to get some Bluetooth (over the ear traditional headphones (not earbuds), that sound good but are not overly expensive.

I think they sound pretty darn good. There's a decent amount of bass and they don't sound tinny. A guy on YouTube reviews a lot of cheaper Chinese brand earbuds and he still says they're the best. And they're only like $20

It's got Bluetooth 5 and you can even take and receive calls with it. And the battery lasts quite long. My only complaint is there is some latency, so if you're playing a game there is a tiny little bit of lag before the sound goes through to your ears
