Good buds, careful with compatibility
on 3 April 2014
The sound is good, the design is good, and the feel is good. At this end of the spectrum, all ear-buds are very similar in sound, but I satisfied nevertheless.
I specifically bought these buds with a mic so I could go hands-free on my phone - I have a Xperia Mini Pro by Sony Ericsson. Sony E. have a different order for the poles on their jacks (the gold rings on the plug), so unfortunately I wasn't able to use the mic, which was initially very disappointing. In order to use the earbuds, you have to tape down the button on the left-bud, and then you can use them as if they didn't have a mic.
3 Stars: There's nothing wrong with the product, but I had no idea that some manufacturers didn't stick to the standard pole arrangement. Would have been nice to have something in the description listing incompatible devices.
