Disappointing, 29 Jan. 2014
I've been waiting for these to arrive all day and was looking forward to enjoying the crystal clear stereo sound I'd read about in several reviews. But I have to say I'm dumfounded in a bad way. I can't understand all of the positive reviews, they must surely be talking about a different product.
As a couple of other negative reviews on here have pointed out, the sound is very muffled and muddy. This is so much worse than listening to music through my laptop's built-in speakers or any pair of cheap earbud headphones I've had for iPods and phones. Yes, there is a good range of lows and highs and the bass comes through loud. But it certainly doesn't come through clear.
It's frustrating hearing such a muddy version of some of my favourite music, and I really can't tolerate it for very long. These are going back I'm sorry to say.
