Just got mine today, what an absolute waste of money. I kept reading about people saying they're big but from looking at the pictures I thought they didn't look that bad. Well it looks and feels like I have AA batteries sticking out of my ears. Even with the winds there's no way these are staying in my ears while I run, I feel like even if I turn around too quick they're fly out. I know they aren't particularly made to be athletic earbuds but come on.
I haven't even taken the time to listen to them yet but I can already tell that they are going to get thrown in a pile of old junk in the next few days. Very disappointing, I knew I should've cancelled my order when I kept reading more and more bad reviews. Why do these keep getting picked for drops?
I might give an update after I listen to them, and I'll try to do the recommended 50-100 hour burn in lol
Yep, I had the same experience. I tossed mine in the trash after a few days of trying the various earbud tips. Even with the wings, these things will not stay put.
I made a similar comment below, and one of the designers commented that "9 out of 10" users can find a comfortable fit. So they sell 10k units, and a thousand people can't get them to work? Any designer should know that this means the product sucks, period. Sad to say, but this experience has turned me off of massdrop completely.
I have about 20 hours of break in time now, kinda hard to do when the battery only lasts 5-6 hours. I've given them a little listen and did not like what I heard, but I'm trying not to have any opinions on that until the break in is done. That being said I don't plan on using them at all because I am also definitely not part of the "9 out of 10" (what a joke) that finds them comfortable.
I'm with you, if this is the kind of thing massdrop thinks is a good idea to support then I'm having second thoughts.
Another quick update: Turns out they don't hold their charge while not in use. I charged it overnight, unplugged it before going to work this morning, turned them on when I got home (9 hours later) and the battery was almost dead.
Given the rest of our experiences, I'm hardly surprised. After you've completely given up on these headphones, do yourself a favor and check out the wraparound over-ear design by Insignia. They aren't as attractive as an in-ear design, but they're very comfortable to wear, and I guarantee they won't fall off!
Please see my reply to Dn_89. Would be happy to send a pair of the new tips to you as well.
Regarding the battery, on standby should definitely last longer than 9 hours and continuous use is up to 10h. Is it possible that the earphones were connected to a source?
The only thing it was paired with was my phone which was with me at work, they weren't even turned on because I remember removing it from the charger and leaving it turned off when I left.
There may be 7 billion people with unique ears but I bet none of them like having tree trunks stuck in their ears.
I already gave up on these a while ago and bluetooth IEMs in general, the technology just isn't here yet. I already moved back to wired.
Thank you Derek. I appreciate that you took the shot with our Bluetooth IEMs. We are working on the successor on which we should have addressed the concerns you are having. Once we have this product ready to ship, I´ll send you a note. Hopefully we can deliver.
You are right. You can not even walk properly wearing it. Running !!! forget about it. This is for only sitting down and listen
music but thats not the idea for bluetooth IEM should be. The sounquality is pretty good though when you properly burn it.
