thanks, so AAC bluetooth is better than sbc? I don't know what sbc is, but AAC is better because why? My gym isn't too loud, they do have music playing though. I guess I'll have jot try when I get the foamies in...too much ear wax getting in the grills without those little foam ear pads. Hopting that will make them a bit more comfy as they numbed the back of my ear a little. So you don't find the II's bassy? I had the originals and the bass overwhelmed me... Are you a bass head? from the wirecutter… Brent and I didn’t like the change. As he said, “I like the sound of the 25 better. They gave these a bass bump and a treble boost. Little too sizzly and a little too bloated.” Lauren was on the fence, “Decent highs, though a little rolled off. The mids are a bit flat (lacking dimension) and lows are a little bloated.” From sound guys… Lows are definitely still given preference over everything else, but on the bright side the weird rattle that used to occur in songs with heavy bass is gone, so thankfully they fixed that. That said, these aren’t any less bassheavy. Each basskick in the song “We Just Haven’t Met Yet” by Russ shook my eyes just a little bit. I’m sure some people will find this to be great but I do not. Still, at least the rattling is gone. Mids are just as clean as they’ve always been with vocals coming through loud and clear.
