You are being rather insulting.
For the record, I am very positive about my HTC one m8 and the Apple Earpods I am now using with it. I usually have a smile on face when music goes through them into my ears.
Like I say, if I can try an X1 I will, and I will be honest in my comments about it. What more can one do?
My earpods are still brand new unused in my iphone 5s' box since I bought it six months ago, guess why ?
