    Creative Sound Blaster X7 - Detailed Review & Impressions

    ^ Failed to mention that I also called Creative's tech support 3 times, and each time was on hold for 30 minutes followed by being disconnected. What an abortion of a way to do business.

    Creative Sound Blaster X7 - Detailed Review & Impressions

    ^ One week to receive an rma? Not reasonable. And just because 10-15 days is posted doesn't make it reasonable either. Never experienced anything like it. Nothing will ever change unless consumers fight back with the only power they have. Take it like a sheep and it will continue to be crap.

    Creative Sound Blaster X7 - Detailed Review & Impressions

    I returned my x7 since I didn't feel it was ready for prime time. It took a full week to receive an rma number after it was requested. And although it was delivered to Creative on April 28th, still no refund. This is the worst return experience I've seen from a so-called reputable company. A...

    The Best Noise Cancelling (ANC) Bluetooth Headphones "discussion and comparison" Thread

    ^ Good idea as there are just too many models. You might also consider splitting into four threads, on ear and over.

    So this btunes is essentially a BT conversion kit for wired headphones? I'd be interested to hear how this works out.

    ^ I think you'll fit right in. Everyone on this site has a big head. Based on the products you own, SQ will be important. Forget the Jabra, imo. I'd say the Zik 2, M2 Wireless, or Definitive Tech's Symphony. Try each, then go with the one that doesn't hurt to wear. Everyone's head is...

    Creative Sound Blaster X7 - Detailed Review & Impressions

    ^ Perhaps I didn't understand Earphonia's comment: "Approximately 1 ohm headphone output impedance. Lower output impedance than the 2.2 ohm on the standard SB X7." This headphone output impedance isn't better at driving certain headphones?

    ^ Doesn't matter how far you're away from the X7 (or whatever), since you'll be using a separate mic no matter what. X5 is stereo only, while X7 is 5.1 surround. X7 also has a better amp (X5 amp is headphone only), better sound, and more connectivity options. LE has a better power adapter...

    ^ M2s are built for today's mainstream music. Haven't listened to the radio in 20 years. Can't wait to hear more about the Denons.

    @noob2 Thanks for the detailed review. Others say the bass is overblown on the M2. Some also say they're terrible for classical music, so I'm thinking they won't be good for easy listening alternative either. Looks like its DT or bust for me. Maybe the Denons if the NC is good.

    ^ Not a very detailed review. And no NC on the 1ABT anyway, so no sale here.

    ^ Forbes lambasted the app-dependent design choice, so not so sure it's a selling point. Most users use different sources, not just one. And 6 hours battery life? Unforgivable in 2014 (release year). I'm sure they sound great, but they're not for me.

    ^ The battery life and app-dependency would have to both be fixed in v3.0 for me to even consider the Zik.

    3.0 will be too little too late for me as that's a long way off. I'm flummoxed every time I think about that battery. And let's not forget the Parrots are unusable (sound wise) with sources that don't have their proprietary app running (such as a PC). Another baffling design choice. Double...

    ^ Thanks for your feedback. Most owners seem to complain of the M2 hiss. Many of them on these boards. One person even said, "I can't even hear the hiss when the music is playing!" Seemingly happy that was such a good thing. I'm interested if users hear a hiss with nothing playing. Unless...
