Good sound, bad fit,
This review is from: Creative Sound Blaster Evo Wireless Bluetooth NFC Gaming Headset with USB and 3.5 mm Analogue Connection (PS4 / PC / MAC / Smart devices) (Electronics)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Overall I'm quite happy with this product although there are also some misses that means that I might consider other products in the same price range, but first for the positives:
- The sound is really clear and enjoyable - the louder, the better
- The wireless works really well (once I found out how to use it! The instructions that come with the product are very basic and pretty much only covers the function of the buttons etc. on the headphones, but not how to e.g. pair using Bluetooth - or even information that you need to install a software on your mobile phone to use the Bluetooth function. It might be obvious to other users, but as this is the first time I've used Bluetooth, it wasn't immediately clear to me and I didn't find any really useful information about it on the company's website either, so there was some trial and error for me at first). But once it is installed, it is great not to constantly get the cables stuck on the bag or bus doors or whatever else I pass on my way to work!
- It folds to take up less space than a normal headset and it comes with a bag to protect the product which I thought was a nice touch
- The battery life is really good and it is charged via USB, so you can continue listening to music while you charge it.
There are, however, also some negatives and the most important one for me is the fit which really isn't very good. It sits awkwardly on the ears - not quite covering them like my old Sennheiser headphones (which I love) nor are they small enough to really warrant this downsizing from a standard headphone fit. They are quite hard on the ears and very "wobbly" meaning if you jump or run, they are likely to fall off or at the very least end up half way down your face which is frustrating. Also related to the fit is the fact that every time I take a step, there is a corresponding sound in the headphones - probably because they are moving over my ears. This obviously is not as apparent at loud volumes, but it is extremely annoying when I'm just using them around the office.
The only other negative thing I have to say is not so much related to the product as to the before-mentioned lack of information provided with the headphones. Even if they wanted to save on the paper included in the packaging, they should at least provide a useful website that the user could access without the trial and error of Google searches or phone calls to the company.
A good product that requires some tweaking. 3.5 stars
