3 rd Replacement Yikes!
on March 4, 2010
I just want to add my two cents concerning using the Scosche Earphones/Mic for my iPod Touch 16GB 2nd Generation.
First, AMAZON CUSTOMER SUPPORT HAS BEEN UNDERSTANDING AND PATIENT RESOLVING WHERE POSSIBLE. I bought several months ago the Scosche IDR350m $49-79 Earphone set with mic. Only thing when arrived was that they were missing the extra earbuds and (like wise on 1st IDR650m replacement) got little credit towards IDR350m since was just over 30 days policy. Other than that they work well since September 2009. [Driver 10.7mm Frequency response: 17Hz - 20kHz]
Now these top of the line Scosche IDR650m $79-$99 [Driver 11mm Frequency response: 15-20kHz] two replacements given me, 1nd return defective on one ear bud has a 'crackling noise' when re-adjusting to ear canal. The 2nd replacement was Mic intermittently didn't work properly.
The newest Scosche IDR655m, promises to be a better Mic and Earphone set. (has same driver and freq. resp.) Lets hope so otherwise I would NOT RECOMMEND these at all sound is Ok, but touchy!
Looking into pair of Sony Sony MDREX38iP (less than $50) [Driver 9mm Frequency response: 6-23kHz] though smaller driver but other reviews on Apple site seem pleased.
