View Full Discussion This is true. But at the same time, I think it is impressive that MD can provide nearly same pricing as Amazon considering economies of scale disparities between the two outfits =)
That said, lack of APT-X is a huge deal breaker for this item (though the price obviously reflects it). Pretty much every piece of half-decent tech has that capability nowadays. For $15 more I would recommend considering the Ausdom M05 (these look as sound indistiguishable from MEE Air-Fi Matrix2)
Is Ausdom M07 better than M05 you mentioned?
I do not have hands on experience with M07, but I would assume would be some sound compromise as specs don't list aptX chip (with everything else being equal). Obviously other things need to be considered...
Both the source and headphones must have aptX to make a difference with quality media. If one of the devices doesn't have it or I am listening to (sub)average material and/or just making phone calls...$40 B/T headphones will sound just as good as $400 pair. But that's from my limited experiences and lack of golden years. Others' mileage might vary.
For the record, my current B/T line up is Sony MDR XB950 B/T (home), Phiaton BT 220 NC (flying), and Ausdon M05 (gym).
Thanks for the info. Heard that the upgraded version is coming soon, Ausdom ANC7 . I will wait for that one, some early reviewer at Head-Fi said that it is even better than Ausdom M05. Hopefully Massdrop can get them soon =)
