Zero Bass and impossible search options - Extremely disapointing.
9 September 2018
Great idea and concept. A set of headphones with a built in MP3 player. And on the photos it looks great. Perfect for the gym or Id guess swimming (not a sport I participate in though)
However...... In gym and commuting use
* 16gb without a screen and only being able to hop one folder at a time is ridiculous. May as well be 1gb as any more than 10 folders and the whole things becomes impossible to find anything. Trying to find the right track at the gym proves a 15 minute workout in itself.
** Average volume. As loud or as quiet as an Iphone with bundled ear buds. Paying for a separate MP3 player Id have like more. Yes I get companies dont want to be sued so build them with a restrictive level but then let us over ride this at our risk.
*** By far the worst thing about this product. Where is the bass???? Best way I can describe is if you had a 5 band EQ and I came and turned the first two sliders on the left all the way down. Its like listening to music via a telephone. Absolutely appalling. And its ment to get worse with the swimming ear pieces attached. Previously to this I was using a £25 san disc MP3 player and a mates iPhone bundled earbuds. This combo was way better than this £140 headset??
Amazon are of course superb with their return policy. So nothing to lose. Im just gobsmacked this got past the development stage by Sony.
Sorry to be so negative, but I as really looking forward to these.
