Default purchasing o2 sensors

i am replacing both of my o2 sensors on exhaust. i have seen such a price range difference though, from 28 dollars to 180 dollars. Does it make a difference what brand the sensor is? I could get an universal replacement that is OEM fitment and lifetime warranty for only 28 bucks.

NO.

universal fitment... just a sensor., no plugs ... you solder,or put your plug onto the new sensor and "hope" it works.

OEM fitment. +screws into pipe. comes with plug attached and built, Plugs right in and ready.

Depends on how much work you want to put into it. I would atleast get OEM FIT

If you care, Denso sensors have been the best performers in my limited experience.
