Everything sounds tinny/bad.
on May 22, 2018
I bought these as my try for an Anker sound product, and one of my first earbuds (I typically use over ear headphones, but want something for exercise). I decided to go for these more expensive newer ones, as opposed to the older model that was $15 cheaper at the time. I figured might as well get the latest ones, right? I kind of wish I had gone for the cheaper pair, though...I maybe would have been happier with my purchase.
They fit okay, and have various fitting options to choose from. The case is a nice touch as well. I was also impressed with how I was able to go upstairs in to our closet while leaving my phone downstairs, and still have a good signal.
However the sound on these things...people are saying they can FEEL the bass, but I am hear no bass from them at all. Everything sounds tinny no matter what I do. Did I get a faulty pair? Are earbuds just bad in general and these are "better than most"? I don't understand. I've tried them with various devices (Pixel 2, iPad 2018, Surface Pro 4) and nothing sounds good with these (meanwhile sounding perfectly fine in my 3 other pairs of headphones, including my Sony clip-ons from 2012).
