    Disappointing bass...

    • Written by from London

    As being surprised over superb design and ergonomics, I was same over almost total absence of low frequencies, which made listening to the music almost unbearable noisy-like. I do understand there is a challenge in producing bass good enough in such physically non-invasive design compared to in-ear, but B&O should know better. There is definitively a big market for the people that do not want to isolate their hearing from sounds outside, at least on the streets this is quite dangerous and on the other hand we want to have as best music experience as possible, but EarSet 3i are far from reaching a good compromise here.
    I returned headphones to the Apple Store, excellent service as always.

    Stunning.

    I've bought many top end earphones over the years but these are by far the best. They look amazing, are ridiculously comfortable (you don't know you're wearing them), very light (great for gym / running) and above all sound incredible. They've taken my iPhone listening experience to a whole new level. Superb.

    Standard cheap earbuds in a delightful over-ear hook.

    These look gorgeous. The hook that goes over the ear is a rather lovely adjustable... thing, if uncomfortable. The machining is lovely, but the functionality is... poor.

    The earbud itself, though acceptable, is no different to that found as standard with devices since the mid-1980s & the sound is no better to my (amateur) ears.

    Am confused why B&O bothered to put this out. It's massively sub-par.

    One earbud died after a couple of months light use. B&O agreed to replace the headphones for me, but they are not good enough to bother. Yes, I could sell the new pair, but I would not feel comfortable charging more than £10 tops, given the sound quality.
