comment
" ...  Upon receiving the package, I noticed that it was made out of low-quality plastic and thought that the sound would also be very mediocre. ... There were some parts of the plastic that stuck out (probably from the mold used to shape the plastic) and wasn’t cleaned off, so it scraped me a few times before I decided to file it off. ... If you’re planning on getting one, I’d probably look into a fabric cover for it if there are any around, since the plastic does feel a little bit cheap and may scratch you at the points where they are connected.  ...  "

comment
" ...  Again, my only other experience was with the Bose which costs 10X more, but I've even had ear pieces that have better Bass than this. ... You are sacrificing a bit of Bass, compared to most headsets, but this has decent sound quality and is especially good if you want to listen to music, the TV or a Podcast at a low volume without disturbing others in the household.  ...  "
comment
" ...  I would say, the idea of getting something of higher quality (in the bass range) is definitely more interesting now. ... If the company can release a product with emphasis on bass frequencies in the near future, there is no doubt I would upgrade.  ...  "
comment
" ...  The sound quality, power and bass are amazing.  ...  "
comment
" ...  It's doesn't carry bass but the surround sound is perfect. ... So music with heavy bass (I am not sure if that's low or high in technical terms) has a muffled sound scratching sound which is unpleasant.  ...  "
