I got a binocular loupe similar to this guy (not from Ali though) and have been using it for SMD soldering. It's more convenient (for me) to be able to look around with something mounted on my face.

Sometimes, I wish I had a little more than 3.5x magnification. But up the price range a hair more and they have 5x and 6x magnification versions.

The thing I like about these things (even though it's a little pricey) is that it has a relatively long focal length so I can sit up normally and the board is in focus vs the jeweler style ones that you have to sit up right next to the board to use and aren't binocular.
