Hi, I purchased these headphones about a week ago and they finally showed up today. I was SUPER excited because people said they have heavy bass (better than beats) and have excellent sound quality.
However, from the solid hour of listening I've put into them thus far, this is not the case. Truthfully, the sound isn't all that amazing. It's not clear. And the bass is virtually non-existent except for insanely bass-boosted songs, where it sounds like normal bass. I read the instruction manual from front to back before using them, so I didn't do anything wrong to break them already.
I tried very bass-heavy songs over and over again saying "Hm, that doesn't sound that great. Oh! I know! This song is AMAZING and has perfect bass! Maybe this song sounds good through these headphones!"
Again, not the case. Honestly, my friend has a $10 pair of skull-candy buds that have far greater sound then these. I've tried both cables that this comes with, and they're not defective. Is the sound quality really this terrible? Or am I not doing something correctly? Can anyone give me any ideas to troubleshoot or fix what's wrong with them or what I'm doing wrong?
Fast replies would be appreciated, for I want to get them working well hopefully by the end of the week. Is it possibly just the fact that they're brand new and I haven't broken them in yet? I don't believe that could be it because these sound absolutely horrendous. My UrBeats Earbuds blow these out of the water in both sound quality and bass. And they cost about 1/5 as much. This is my first pair of over-the-ear headphones. Do over-the-ear headphones just have weaker sound? Are Buds better? Because I've always been under the impression that the much larger drivers in the over-the-ear headphones could deliver much fuller sound.
Sorry for the word wall, everyone. I'm just so disappointed with these headphones. I read nothing but good things about them, but all I can say is that they're maybe a 2/10 at the most. And for the price? These are absolute junk. Is it something I'm doing wrong? Or are these completely defective? Thanks!
