I have a backup plan...
From reading this and other threads, they all state that a larger head size is preferable..I think I have an average head size maybe on the big side. Plus, I noticed that a lot of owners were recommending doing the gentle squeeze thing too. Well, I just pulled the trigger on them, will get a order confirmation and tracking number tomorrow. The back up plan is this, when I get them, sample how they perform, if they are say better than my Harman Kardon BTs, they will be keepers, and most likely I will get past the fit thing. I am almost 98% sure they will not be better than my Sony MDR 1RBTMK2s, but, if they are, and I am that lucky, they will be super keepers, and I will have a lock grin for about a month!!
Now, if they turn out to be sub par to my novice listening ears, then I have a exchange plan to try out another pair. BTW, Harman Kardon, offers FREE shipping back for exchanges..And exchange time is 30 days..Great policy if you ask me.. The pair I will exchange them for, and I have no idea what reference and open back mean,which these will be. I am going for the style and what they originally cost, I will be exchanging for the AKG Q701 in black. They have these on that same web site for $199.95 refurbished.. However, these are referred to as reference phones, and I have no idea what the reference or even the open back does.. Just going by the looks, the same way I judge cars and women...
So far, this is a fun thing I have latched on too..
