Very good sound quality but keep falling out
on October 5, 2012
If you only care about sound quality and looks, then dont read further. Just buy this headset, as you would not get such a good quality headset for such a low price. And as a bonus, they look pretty impressive and are very durable too.
Just like any good headphones, given these headphone some time. In 2 to 4 hours they will be nicely broken in and would produce very rich bass and awesome sound quality. Dont judge the sound quality on your first song.
But they have 3 issues, which could have been very easily solved by HTC, but HTC left it to the lethargic engineers who designed parts arousing these 3 issues.
1. They keep falling out. They just dont stay in your ears. The problem is the rubbery part that goes in ear is too soft, and its shape is such that it keeps getting bigger at the end (like a parabola). If you compare other in ear headphones, then you will notice that their rubbery part is a little more stiffer and it gets curved at the end. because of which once it goes in ear it stay there.
2. No clip. Everyone will admit that the headsets are a little heavier that other headsets. The wire is a little stiff and thick. And the thickness and stiffness gives them strength. They are very robust. However, the weight of the wire also pulls the headphones out of the ear. If they had included a nice clip near the mic, if would have solved this problem to a large extent.
3. Cord length for left and right is same, and is very long. So if the wire is just hanging from your head the mic goes far below your chest. Again the clip would have helped here. But if the right was shorter and left was longer, then the left could come from behind the neck and it would have given extra support to the cord. So even when you dont have them in ears, they would have stayed on your neck with the support.
If HTC releases next version fixing these issue, I will be the first one to buy them, provided the cost remains somewhat similar.
