84 reviews for Avalon 8×32 MINI HD Binoculars (PLATINUM)

  1. Nick

    I ordered some around 3 days before I left for a trip to the Himalayas. They got them to me in 24 hours. Nice and lightweight. Very pleased with them, nice looking and enhanced the trip.

  2. Tony

    I bought these for my wife as her first ‘proper’ binoculars. They needed to be light, a handy size, easily adjustable, have a large focusing knob, eye relief adjustment and a clear light picture. These tick all those boxes and more. My wife, being practical, likes the attached lens caps, as well. All in all we are both very pleased and impressed with the quality and value.

  3. Keith M

    White rather than platinum body & quickly dirtied when climbing stiles or fences (but easily cleaned). As bright & clear an image as expected & better than expected in dim lighting; firm focusing & wonderfully light even when walking all day. I’ve missed the 10x magnification of my other bins on a couple of occasions but that’s been a small price to pay for the compactness of these.

  4. D. T

    One of the weakest binoculars through which I have ever observed. The twist cup is totally unmounted with the body, you can forget about any 3-way adjustment of the distance. They just come out on their own. Powerful reflections spoiling the contrast. Observation on a sunny day is simply a tragedy. .a very weak sweet spot, in principle, if you can call it a sweet spot at all, I estimate the sharpness at 6/10. In a word, punishment than pleasure of observation. .they are not worth even £ 30, not to mention the price in the manufacturer’s shop 👎If someone claims that this is a good pair of binoculars, they probably have never seen anything from at least a medium-low shelf .

  5. Mark Askwith

    Lightweight, robust, good vision; took them to Italy for their first outing and loved them.

  6. Dave

    I bought some 10×42 from Avalon before, so when my wife wanted a smaller pair I opted for these 8×32. Again, I was not disappointed. It appears all Avalon binoculars are good.

  7. Kay

    Love my new Avalon mini 8×32 Binoculars. Very fast delivery and well packaged. Feel good in the hand, not flimsy. Easy to set and superb clear view, I have them on-hand by the kitchen window. Hardest thing I had to do was to work out, using their instructions, how to thread the strap, but that is probably just me. Very pleased with size, look and quality of them.

  8. Craig

    Love these bins!!! Quick delivery, excellent clarity, nice and compact. They feel quality in the hand too. Not too heavy but not feather light either. Great idea with the lens caps also.

  9. Brenda

    Really pleased with my binoculars nice and light to carry and lovely clear view. Can’t wait to go and use them properly. Excellent quick delivery.

  10. Ken

    My wife was really pleased with Avalon 8X32 binoculars, her previous binoculars were large and heavy, the Avalon are a lot smaller, lighter and she’s able to carry them in their own case for bird and animal viewing whilst out walking, very easy to focus good magnification and excellent quality, we are both really pleases with this purchase.

  11. Susannah

    Small and chunky but quite heavy for a ‘portable’ pair. Like the lens caps and ease of use.

  12. Jane Moore

    Great compact binoculars for a great price. Powerful for their size and small enough to pack in a bag for the day. Love the colour!

  13. Nikki

    Great little pair of binoculars! I have bought these as a gift for my son who is going to be working away in the Falklands for the next 6 months, so sadly had to give them up!
    However I know that he is going to love their light weight feel and compact size. I loved how sharp they were, so different to my husband’s 40yr old – weigh a tonne pair! Would definitely recommend – would love a pair myself – but now sadly out of stock! Arrived quickly, well packaged, and come in a lovely box, with strap etc.

  14. Mike Thorogood

    Very good product and great service

  15. Jo

    Really glad I bought these. My first pair of binoculars. They are lightweight and easy to focus with a lovely clear view.

  16. Kat

    I bought these recently to replace an old pair of 7×24 compact binoculars. Although fractionally heavier and larger, this Avalon model give a much clearer and brighter image whilst still being very portable and easy to use. The colour combination also means I don’t get my binoculars mixed up with those belonging to others in the house! Impressive shipping and delivery too.

  17. Isobel

    Really clear field of view and easy to focus and adjust. Great for taking on a walk. Quick delivery too.

  18. Sue Smith

    This is the first pair of binoculars I have owned. Up until now I’ve relied on using my husband’s, which are good, but very heavy. These are great! The field of vision is good and the image is very sharp. Best of all, they’re light enough and small enough to keep under my coat when we’re walking.

  19. Keith Tatham

    Brilliant. We have several bins but have always thought that clarity was less than ideal. Do with Great British Birdwatch looming we decided to try these Avalon 8 x32s.
    Wow what a difference. Compact for any kind of outing and the clarity is unbelievable. Made our Birdwatch day so much more satisfying. As not only could we see the birds we could identify them because of the clarity. We are delighted.

  20. patrick ryan

    very quick delivery . smartlooking and high quality ;image is sharp. can’t comment further at this time as for wife and she doesnt want to open them till her birthday

  21. Pamela

    Light weight and stylish but most importantly excellent quality . However , I have yet to find a way to add the carrying strap ! It seems many other customers struggle with this and perhaps an overhaul of the instructions would help .

  22. Gerald Dumbreck

    First “real” Binoculars I`ve owned so not a lot to compare them to, but all I will say is that they are all I could have wished for. Very clear sharp image and the 8X32 means they have a nice stable and wide view when trying to focus in on your chosen target.
    Lovely and compact but loads of power. I`m really happy with the choice I made in getting these. Great value for money in my opinion.

  23. Ann

    Excellent! Just what I wanted to see the birds in the garden. Light enough to take with me on country walks too – when we’re allowed to!

  24. Mo Sandland

    Excellent product. Well made, comfortable to use, good weight and size for carrying, great magnification.

  25. steve bramall

    quick delivery, feels very much a quality product, would recommend, the recipient likes them, always a plus.

  26. Tony

    I bought the 8x32HD platinum for my daughter’s birthday as a replacement for a pair of Zeiss 8×30 I bought her over 30 years ago. She wanted something lighter and with clearer vision. My wife and I wanted to encourage her to take up birdwatching again as a pastime and for exercise. We met up for a walk and surprised her with the present. She was thrilled to bits and was soon spotting the birds in the estuary. She found the binoculars really light and was amazed by the clarity and brightness of the images compared with her old ones. It had proved an ideal gift. She liked the very distinctive colour too. For a full spec. product I think they provide exceptional value.

  27. Diane Shirvinton

    Bought them for Christmas but they are so good have started using them straight away. Good for use when wearing glasses. A good clear sharp view. Have used them loads watching the birds in our garden. Can’t wait to get out on walks in the Lakes and use them more. Highly recommended.

  28. Shona Smith

    Purchased the 8×32 mini HD Binoculars and am very pleased with the quality of this item. They are solid and compact. Just love them and such good value. I thought your website was good, it was you asking what I required them for etc and pointing me to these which was the seller.

  29. Mike Cox

    The 5 star rating is for Avalon, not the glasses which unfortunately had a manufacturing fault. Before the fault developed the glasses were clear and easy to use, especially for someone like me who wears glasses. When the fault developed I emailed Avalon with photos of the fault. They reacted within hours, very apologetic and replaced them without question.

  30. Michael G Boyce

    I bought these for my wife ( white colour body for her birthday. She is a keen walker and bird watcher.
    They have been test driven on 2 holidays now: they are easy to focus, not too heavy. The lens protectors are a good idea. The depth of field is excellent for seeing birds and also long distance views of hills and sea life (like seals).
    We found them very handy for checking gates on footpaths from the opposite end of a field especially if the field had bulls in it!

  31. Christopher Anstock

    Nice binoculars, good optics which is the main thing I was wanting. Couple of details could be better though. The adjustment for spectacle users is rather too easy to move inadvertently and needs to be reset regularly and the individual focus adjustment on the right side has markers for +, -. and 0 but there is no corresponding pointer to show where they are set.
    Good binoculars overall though and good value and service from Avalon.

  32. Rosemary Eileen PRENTICE

    At last, I have now been out and adjusted the binoculars for my vision. They are really fantastic and I am pleased to have found something to accompany me when I am out walking or going further afield. I think these are the first I have ever owned so glad they
    are so highly appreciated by those professionals!

  33. Liam

    Ordering and delivery I can’t fault , quick and easy .
    This is my first pair of binoculars so I’ve got nothing to compare them with , but I really like them .
    Easy to focus and use with or without my glasses, good field of vision and lightweight.

  34. Trashcanman

    The wife loves these as they go with her white BMW Mini Coffee Cup in her Mini Clubman!!!
    She keeps them in her car for bird watching and when taking the dog out. Loves the clarity and also that they are compact enough to be portable.

  35. Norman Lejeune

    These are my first mini binoculars and delighted with my purchase.
    Light, compact and convenient to carry in my jacket pocket, they are perfect for my interest in the great outdoors.

  36. Valerie BERRY

    I was thrilled with my new Avalon binoculars, the best I’ve ever purchased especially for the price. They are lightweight and particularly useful for bird watching. Fast shipping too

  37. Mick

    Nice and light. Handy for carrying or in a rucksack.
    Not how I would have described platinum but hey ho makes a change from black. 😀

  38. Chrissy

    They are fabulous so very pleased I chose the right binoculars. I did a fair amount of research on binoculars before I purchased them.
    I have only enjoyed the birds in my garden so far. I highly recommend them.

  39. Paul

    Bought these binoculars for my wife, as we have been embarking on sections of the Wales Coastal Path. They are fabulous – crystal clear images and a large field of view. I was shocked how good they were when I looked through them the first time.
    They are also solidly built and feel that they will last many years. If you’re looking for quality compact binoculars, look no further.

  40. Margaret Donald

    Excellent service . Prompt considerate delivery at this difficult lockdown time ! I was most impressed. The product completely lived up to expectations . Now bringing great delight to my daughter in her new place overlooking the Sea .

  41. Ann Warren

    I couldn’t be more impressed with every aspect of Avalon’s service…online advice regarding which binoculars would suit, speedy delivery, and although I use them mainly in my garden to identify birds and insects etc after reading other reviews I plan to do some stargazing. In the absence of being able to visit an actual shop due to Covid I took the plunge and for only the second time in my life ordered online…brilliant! Thank you…

  42. Alice Roberts

    I love my new binoculars. They’re compact, lightweight, easy to use. I’ve recently had a special birthday and bought a pair with my birthday money. I made some research and decided that the Avalon 8×32 mini would suit me best. No regrets, very pleased with purchase. I’ll take them with me when we go cycling, and walking. Saw a pair of Red Kite soaring in the sky recently, superb.

  43. S Brister

    I have been looking for a decent pair of binoculars for a long time. After reading the reviews on your website, I decided to go for the 8×32. What EXCELLENT value, whether I am looking at the moon, or the Woodpecker in the garden, the experience they bring is truly breath taking. I feel I can almost touch the moon, and they bring the garden indoors. Quick service as well. Thank you.

  44. Roger Ashcroft

    Great piece of kit
    Bonus my 7 year old daughter can use them

  45. Brenda Hempton

    Really pleased with my binoculars. I have a lot of neck pain and wanted something of good quality but light to carry. These are perfect – really sharp but light and comfortable . I like the platinum finish – reminds me of the quality of Canon L series lenses.

  46. Paul

    I bought these for my better half who has recently accelerated her interest in bird watching and, after much research, these looked like being the best option for all her requirements without breaking the bank at entry level – and they have not disappointed! Light, compact, easy to handle and use and with a clarity and overall optical experience for the price that is usually found in higher entry equipment (I have extensive experience of military optics).
    Highly recommend these if you are just starting out and they will see you through until (if) you need to upgrade, as your own experience grows – really good all round piece of kit and a lifetime warranty too as standard.
    Great service from Avalon too – speedy dispatch and delivery and the packaging was all either recycled or recyclable – great to see no plastic in sight!

  47. Maggie Stephens

    Very pleased with these binoculars. I already had a higher magnification pair but seldom use them as so bulky. These are compact, easy to use due to good field of view and image is very clear and sharp. Highly recommended.

  48. Les

    Absolutely fantastic clarity, well worth the money!

  49. Gwen Burgess

    I love my new binoculars! I live by a salt marsh and my walks take me along prime bird watching territory. I was getting fed up of taking my big, heavy ones, but was worried that a smaller pair wouldn’t give satisfaction. These are just perfect, and I barely know I have them round my neck. Views are light and clear.

  50. Amanda

    I purchased these binoculars for our trip to Maui in January. I really wanted a decent pair to use since we’d be there during whale season. After a lot of shopping around, I’m so happy I went with this pair. They made a HUGE difference in my whale watching experience. I used them daily to view whales breaching right off our lanai. Our condo had two other pairs available, the Bushnell H2O and another which brand I can’t recall. Neither pair came close to the Avalon 8X32. Even my husband who wasn’t sure we needed a pair in the first place, said it was well worth the money to have them.

  51. Rachael

    After a lot of research I purchased 2 pairs of Avalon 8×32 MINI HD Binoculars for presents for my parents to use for travelling and cruising. They absolutely love them and have given them very good reviews saying they are absolutely perfect. They are light weight and and really clear. Shipping was also super quick. Highly recommend!

  52. Deborah

    These are my first binoculars and so I didn’t know what to expect but am really enjoying using them for bird watching. I was also impressed to find that they were packed in shredded paper rather than unrecyclable bubble wrap.

  53. Barbara

    Did a lot of research before purchasing and knew exactly what I wanted. They are well made , lightweight, easy to handle and a joy to use. They were delivered on time, and well packed . Needed to go online to find out how to attach the strap which took some time to assemble properly but now ready to go !

  54. Keith McPhee

    Compact binoculars with good optics; good for sports, bird-watching, bush-walking, etc.

  55. Dave

    I’ve never had a pair of premium binoculars before and it’s early days, but very impressed. Lovely size, weight and feel, not being a fan of black the platinum is great. Good value and convenient, prompt click and collect. Of course, main thing is ( now I’ve got a bit used to them & realised the eyepieces were too far apart) the clarity, focus snap and image brightness are amazing.

  56. William Dyer

    Being an avid mountain bike rider these are the perfect addition to the rucksack to appreciate the wonderful surroundings. Great product and are exactly as described on-line.

  57. Morana

    Best binoculars owned. Light, compact, sharp and clear. Great with glasses – meets all my requirements

  58. Ian Collins

    Delighted with my new Avalon 8 x 32 binoculars. Always interested in knowing what’s around me when I’m out walking, particularly the bird wildlife. Love the design and compact style, perfect for what I want

  59. Martha Roy

    I am delighted with Avalon 8×32 mini HD binoculars, very light and compact and great for my latest hobby, bird watching, would throughly recommend them and hope to use them on many days out.

  60. Hudson

    Exactly as advertised, excellent as a light weight binocular with all the extras like waterproofing you don’t normally get at this price.

  61. adrian rabone

    Now I’m not an expert on binoculars at all but what I got and what I was expecting were miles apart .. WOW! Was my first thought when trying them out , I can see detail on curtains in the window of a house I can barely see with my own eyes , .. easy to use and small enough to lose in my little rucksack… very pleased I bought them , well worth the money ..

  62. Ant

    Great Purchase. I’m really pleased with them. We’ve had them for a few months now and we have no complaints whatsoever. So much so that I’m actually bothering to write a review! Good size. They’re a big pocket full, so we tend to have to carry them, but not heavy, and great for the price.
    Good for spotting birds & Currently Whales.

  63. David Earl

    Great when out and about, I’m really pleased with them. Easy to use, an ideal size and excellent quality. Easy to order and fast delivery, I would recommend, 100%.
    Go for Platinum – very cool!

  64. Andy fryatt

    Travelled around costa rica with these..great binoculars and a great company to deal with

  65. Andrew Mcinnes

    Purchased for my girlfriend as a birthday gift. After a little disappointment that the package didn’t contain some expensive perfume or a ring she took to them like a wigeon to water. I was rather hoping she’d throw them back at me so I could keep them for myself but she can’t put them down and spotted a short eared owl first time out. They look great, are well balanced and have excellent clarity. Highly recommended (although perfume may have also been a good idea!)

  66. Peter O’Reilly

    These are excellent,sharp and light weight that I was looking for, could focus a little closer in rain forest situations. I am looking forward to taking overseas later in the year. Ideal for that

  67. Peter Trinder

    Given to my wife on her birthday today,she loves the look and feel of them and can’t wait to use them on our cruise to the Norwegian fjords.

  68. Shona Young

    Lovely little pair of binoculars….lightweight, compact and wonderful for bird watching. Am really happy with my purchase.

  69. Kate

    These 8×32 binocs work well for me, who due to neck issues, have to have lighter weight ….I am adjusting to the absence of eye cups which my previous pair had…the clarity is just fine for birdwatching!

  70. Peter

    Bought these and also a pair of the 10*42 s for our trip to Malaysian Borneo to check out orang-utans, monkeys and lots of birds. Worked a treat. There was a complimentary pair of similar spec but higher priced binoculars at one of our resorts and I used them a couple of times however preferred the Avalon. Great value.

  71. Trevor

    Very pleased with the quality and vision of these binoculars , lightweight and compact. Very easy to focus even with thick gloves on. Excellent for bird watching . I like the fact that the lense covers just drop down but stay attached to the binoculars so less chance of loosing them (as I have in the past)

  72. s south

    I bought the 8×32 but they had a problem in focosing email to let them know of the fault .they sent a replacement pair straight away this pair are perfect

  73. Julie Simon

    Hi I purchased your mini binoculars for my husband for xmas and I just wanted to say how happy he is with them. I knew nothing about binoculars until looking at your website for information.I am so glad I did. We will be using them on pur trip to Alasaka. Many thanks. Julie Simon

  74. Paul

    So far I’m very impressed, I bought them primarily for use at sea while boating along the Portuguese coast .as a small pair to keepin my pocket or around my neck instead of my main binoculars which are big and bulky. I have tested them on land and they seem very good so come March they will be tested in anger!!

  75. Johan

    Perfect for everyday use. Small and handy to take on a trip.

  76. Peter

    Very happy with these – much better than a pair of similarly priced 8 x 25 binoculars

  77. Janicee

    Great design, lightweight, easy to carry around, with great magnifying vision

  78. Paul kelsey

    Just used them on a short stroll alongside the Thames in Essex was able to identify avocets from probably 100 meters away and clearly see seals on the far side of the river .looking forward to using them on my upcoming trip to the Amazon .

  79. Mike

    Bought a pair of these for my sister in law on her retirement. She is a keen sailor and also does a lot of walking in Scotland. She has found them ideal as they are compact, lightweight yet still powerful enough for the job. My wife was so impressed with them that she has just purchased an identical pair for herself. Another plus point was the quick delivery.

  80. Dan

    Fantastic product for the price I am able to wear glasses and use the binoculars with great results if your want a lightweight high quality pair of binoculars these are the ones to buy!

  81. Stan Belcher

    Delivery was prompt.Larger than expected.Probably suit many purposes but not so good at the football where the play alters direction quickly.

  82. Andrew Hardwick

    I bought the 8×32 version but they developed double vision 1 year and 1 week old, I expected problems with the warranty but couldnt have been better served, I received a text regarding delivery due next day ( with no mention of what it was?) then a confirmation that they would be replaced with no need to return the faulty item- they took about one day from contact to delivery- EXCEPTIONAL SERVICE well done.
    I just hope they dont develop the same problem as they really are the perfect balance of size / weight and performance- it would be great if they were smaller and lighter but I believe NOTHING better at remotely near this price exists.

  83. Stephen

    Very impressed didn’t no what to expect for the price tried my friends 8x Nikon’s these are a lot better well worth the money

  84. Meggie

    My husband was thrilled to receive these as a gift for his upcoming trip to South Africa. I wanted something lightweight that was easy to travel with, but powerful enough to spot all the great wildlife. These fit the bill, and at a great price point! He was quite impressed by my research. 🙂 Fast shipping, too – I couldn’t be happier with this purchase.
