These ones and the earlier ones are more comfortable than the newer ones
on October 8, 2014
I have gone through 2 of the previous models and 1 of the newer ones, this one being in the middle of the production line makes number 4 for me. I use this at work for it's hand free convenience, which for me is it's only selling point. That said, they such...all of them, so far. If you pay more than 40 buck for these...well don't. These ones and the earlier ones are more comfortable than the newer ones, but the earliest model have a software issue. Both these and the earlier ones use this retched 3-way joy stick that control everything minus the volume that is very easy to engage unintentionally. Also there is no way to lock them on or off, further complicating the previous issue. The newer ones I can't even keep in my ears they just slip out over and over, but they have a lock switch and lose the silly 3-way switch. Which ever of the 3 you purchase they all have an issue. None can do anything with water despite there claims, they hate dust like most electronics, look silly, and if you manage to keep them alive for a year the battery just dies so fill out that warranty man. That said, the sound quality is great on them, they go loud, and the battery charges in like 15min and are good for 6 hours as they claim.
