I received an email today from Zagg. They have a new set of earbuds called the ZR-Six. Has anyone heard anything about them? They are guaranteeing them to be the best earbuds you have ever heard or you will get your money back.
Hm, I didn't even notice that. So apparently, the sound from the driver is facing outwards towards some sort of "acoustic" reflector which will then "reflect" the sound into the right direction. No clue how it works, I really don't care to know either :p
Maybe amazing, but the best? Not in a million years.
Well, maybe for some people here.
And this acoustic-reflectionthingy is kind of interesting.
I just bought a pair of these and I also own the first gen. SMARTbuds (used for 2 years)
- Zagg ZR-Six are not coated in the protective material
- The option to hang them over you neck (Hangin' Tight) is no longer available
- The volume button is removed and the “answer/pause/play” button is made of plastic and the quality seems very bad (instead of metal on the SMARTbuds)
- Like the tangle free cord (it’s flat and not round)
- The sound is better
Conclusion: Overall I'm not extremely pleased with the purchase. In my opinion the SMARTbuds is a far better product, since i usually just listen to audiobooks, so the slightly better sound is not very important to me.
You know they are quite old and the market most likely passed them by. Obviously they weren't anything special back in 2013. Didn't take off and I doubt you'll be seeing anymore feedback. Probably buy $10 KZ that are better. LZ has a new $30 phone that is half the cost and probably beats them up. RHA S500 is $40 and good. Macaw RT-10 is $30 or less and their bigger brother the GT100S is $60 or so and has the same reflected driver plus sound tuning filters and lots of happy users.
