To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I like the connectors because they have a high-end look, but they are not heavy, which is better for earbuds and in-ear monitors.
The cable itself also has a high-end look, but the choice of materials detracts. The cable is on the stiff side, and while that mesh covering may look soft and luxurious, in actuality, it is made of a hard plastic material that feels rough and makes noise as it slides over surfaces. This makes it a poor choice for any recording environment as microphones are particularly sensitive to the character of the noise. It kind of sound is a lot like a zipper.
I couldn't hear anything wrong with the sound transmitted by the cable, but I found the mechanical noise to be quite distracting in my recordings, so it is of rather limited use to me. The the handling and the feel is disappointing too.
I bought one 10 months ago and it started cutting out on me. I bought it again last month ( I didn't realize it was the same one when I ordered), and it is already cutting out. All I am doing is walking around the neighborhood with my phone in my pocket and my headphones in my ears. I'm not power walking and I'm not swinging it around in my hands or yanking on the cord. This really should have lasted longer.
I bought this for my son'e gamer headphones to give him more room as the headphones have a short cord. These looked like they would work, but once they were plugged in, he said there was too much static in the earphones and he couldn't use the headphone mic. Disappointed they work as expected.
