"Such a waste of money!"1.0 starson by cbborromeo
Pros: There are no pros for this substandard product
Cons: bulky, heavy, poor sound quality, bad design, etc.
Summary: A few years ago, when I was in Tokyo, I went to the "electronics district" where a friend bought a pair of Sony Noise cancelling earbuds. 4 years later, I was very happy to see similar ones coming out in the US. To my dismay, these are a cheap immitation from the same manufacturer. In fact, 3 friends also made the mistake of buying these and they all agree on the poor performance and total waste of money. The bulky noise cancelling "thingy" always manages to yank the buds out of my ears. I can only wear these when I am sitting down and have the thing clipped to my shirt. Whoever did the review for Cnet needs to refund my money!
I replaced them with Sony MDR-EX71SL ($35) and I am far happier. I also bought my wife a pair of Etymotic's and she loves them.
