Let me be clear, when I say these are bad I’m not saying they don’t work well, I’m saying they actively try to ruin your life. First off when you use them they will turn the volume down without you touching them. Or up without you touching them. Or start a song/podcast over and over without you touching them. While this is happening over and over again you cannot turn them off. You have to wait until the poltergeist demon inside the circuitry decides it is done which can take 10 or 15 minutes. All that is annoying, but the absolute worst thing about them is that they will randomly turn on and connect to any device you haven’t had “forget” them in said device’s Bluetooth menu. At this point I would like to compliment the Bluetooth range. When the headphones, all the way out in the parking lot of my office, randomly decide to turn on when I’m in the middle of a work call they will connect long enough to ruin the phone call. They will then shut off after I hang up so that I don’t know what’s happening. It took me a while to figure that one out.
Anyways. Don’t buy these. They suck and won’t just not work, they will actively mess with you because of the crappy components inside of them. As anyone in IT or who is a mechanic knows intermittent problems are worse than something just breaking.
