@ oarnura So have you tried out the new Apple Headphones then? Eh? Just don't come to the conclusion that they are great just because reviews say so. Remember people have their own preferences when it comes to sound, vision and taste. Remember that!
Why do you think you need to remind me of a point I made to you early on in the thread.
excellent Sennheiser CX300
That explains it! Apple has a excellent return policy they will take it back.
The product is good but your expectations are for a different sound signature. No one was duped here.
The ADDIEM is more flat in the frequency response than the CX300. Flat response is generally considered good in Audio. Consumers aren't used to flat response. They like their bass boomy and bloated.
There is no harm in that but calling a product fraudulent because it doesn't match you taste is pretty silly.
The reason they are getting good reviews is because they are quite good for the money and features they offer iPod users.
Audio is a presonal preference like food. If you don't like them return them.
Update:- I just read the post that you didn't buy it from Apple. Sorry! Since you claim there is distortion on the left earphone can't you return it as defective?
That response to you was in page 2 of this thread. Why do you think I don't understand that Audio is personal taste?
Since it is personal taste can you not then agree that the ADDIEM is not to your taste. Why then do you think that you can tell me that my liking the ADDIEM is Fanboyism?
Double standard much?
