Quality but inadequate product description
on 25 November 2011
I am glad with these earphones taken for their own worth. The sound is quite good, in both low, mid and high range; the isolation from external sound is surprisingly great; and once you get adjusted to wearing them (which shouldn't take long), they fit very well.
On the other hand, the product description was inadequate: it says, among others, that you'd be able to control volume with the remote control, which isn't the case: you can only pause, skip next, skip previous, and answer/end a call (e.g. on an iPhone). Seeing as I specifically chose this version, which, except for the addition of the control, is supposed to be essentially the same as the marshmallows everybody reviews so well (and I think righteously, we'll see about how they can take wear and tear) to have external volume control, which to me is so important (it saves a lot of battery and it makes it easier to control the volume when you're iPod is in a pocket of some sort), I'm not fully satisfied.
