Like wearing a radio on my head that all can hear!
on May 2, 2018
The headphones are very comfortable against my ears and have a nice look at feel to them. The problem came at two different points: (1) a call came through my cell and was immediately picked up by the headphones. I was pleased to be talking through the headphones only later to find out those around me could hear everything the caller said through the headphones, which were fitting snugly against my ears. (2) I played music to see if the same happened and it did. Raising the volume to a moderate level, approximately just shy of half volume, and those around me could hear the music. This happened when connected to an Android and IPhone in similar fashion. I often work from home, significance of this being that these headphones, as described, I thought would allow me to listen to audio related to my work, take phone calls, and support my personal guided meditation practices...all through one device. When audio played through the headphones at approximately half volume it was like having a radio on or listening to the music straight from the cell phone it self. It is my thought that once I put on headphones others will not hear all I'm listening to and I will not hear all sounds from the surrounding environment. This is clearly not the outcome my partner and I got from the E7. She wants to use her set for guided meditation and music/movies that she does not want others to hear. I bought the E8 also and will test that tomorrow . If I'm not doing some right please let me know. I really want to like these headphones, however function is critically important thus the need to have headphones that better manage the transmission of sound is vital to being satisfied with the headphone's performance. At present I want to know how to return these headphones. Maybe I just a bad pair that are not properly manufactured?
