4.0 out of 5 stars Genuine phones better than fakes!, 18 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: HTC RC E240 Wired Headset with Flat Tangle Free Cable - Black (Wireless Phone Accessory)
I originally bought these from 521Cart, but the ones I received were obvious fakes: look out for spelling mistakes on the box, the box not being as per the web pictures, the phones being plastic bodied rather than metal, and the sound being weak.
I sent them back to Amazon (never heard anything about their investigations) and got genuine ones at the same price from another Amazon supplier - though I did worry that they might have turned up the same!

So, now for a review. The phones are comfortable and the sound is pretty good - not the best I've heard (my bassy old Exspect EX882s were better than any!), but not the worst. There's a lack of punch in the bass, but overall the sound is clear and balanced.
The sound isolation is very good - I've tried noise cancelling ones before and there's nothing to choose between them. However, there is sound transfer when the cable taps against you when moving: there's no strain-relief on the phones or plug end, which would help. The lack of strain relief (the bendy bit of rubber the cable comes out of) makes me wonder how long these will last.
The controller/mic works well (play/pause/next/previous and volume control), but feels a bit far up the cable; right under your chin. The flat "tangle-free" cable has a grabby texture and can catch a bit on clothing.
The conclusion: I got them to use with my HTC phone so I could control it in my pocket, and they do what I need; the sound is nice; the build quality is OK and they were cheap. Easily recommended, but the Exspects were far better.
