Future Sonic Atrio X Impressions - Page 2

The mic is definitely bigger than it needs to be, but it's perfect for the gym where you don't want to have to find a tiny button that is usually included.  According to my ruler measurements it's 3/4" by 3/4" by 1/4" deep.  One thing I do is I run the cable over my ears and then into my shirt down the front...the button still allows you to click it when its under your shirt.  So there are definitely pluses and minuses to the bigger button.  Asthetically, not impressed, but functionally, very impressed.

Wow, that's pretty big. I bet it looks like some kind of crazy bolo tie!

Haha...no doubt but practically speaking it's not THAT big, just kind of oddly shaped which makes it seem bigger than it is.  Obviously if I didn't have an iPod Touch that I listen to 90% of my music on, I'd just get the regular version that doesn't have the iPod controls.  Much more aesthetically pleasing.  I do like the fact that it's easy to hit the button...so there is a plus side to it's size.

 

But in the grand scheme of things, I don't much care how it looks as much as I care for comfort and sound while being able to skip through my "gym mix" 500 song playlist without taking the iPod out of my pocket.  So I'm stuck with it!

That is cool that you can use it for multimedia control, I just assumed it was a mic.

mG7 drivers, they ship to the US. http://www.stealthedeal.com/stratford/Deal/10149 i emailed them and they said they would honor it for me.

Nothing...same thing except it looks like the first link is the one with the ipod control/mic.  I've got an extra pair of those for sale if interested. :)

I have no idea if those are fake...I know mine aren't and the Atrio X will outperform those you just linked significantly.  50 bucks shipped in the USA.  Here's my for sale thread in the other forum if you're interested:

Hello, dbdynsty25. I'm currently looking for a pair of earphones/earbuds that has mostly the same criteria as yours as listed in the beginning of this thread. I'm looking forward to trying the AtrioX's. I have a few general questions before purchasing them. What are the different ways of wearing them? Also, what eartips are included? Lastly, the AtrioX's are probably the best earphones under $50, right? Thanks!

Oh, also, to anyone out there, is there a known difference between the AtrioX SignatureSeries - Roberto Alomar Earphones and the regular Atriox's?

I would bet it's packaging and not audio related.

Alright, thanks. I'd rather get the regulars than spend another $70 on advertising!
