Good music quality, noise cancelation almost non existent
on 14 August 2012
Very good music quality, crisp highs and adequate bass.
But, noise cancelation is almost non existent as soon as the earbud(s) are not perfectly fitting. As soon as the slightest amount of sound creeps in due to not fitting right, almost the entire noise cancelation is lost. The only way i can achieve a tight seal in my ear canals is using the largest bud rubbers and putting the buds upside down in my ears and really push them in. Not only does that look odd, it stresses the cable where they atach to the buds, and the length of the cord between the right earbud to the conrol module is too short to clip the control module to my shirt pockect. All in all disappointing due to not being able to get a perfect fit, considerng a refund if possible.
update: they fit my wife ears perfectly well and she is stunned by the noise cancelling. For me, the angle in which the buds protude from the earphones is way off. My ear canals point upwards & forward, while the buds point downwards & forward when wearing them. For me, they should be rotated about 90 degrees, pointing forward & slightly upwards when the cable is pointing straight down. So its design doesnt suit me, maybe it suits your ears. Too bad the design doesnt allow to rotate the angle of the buds (contemplating cutting them open and glueing them back together rotated right now :-) )
