    Do none of you people know what bass is?

    • Written by from Glasgow

    I read a lot of reviews saying that these had good bass but was so disappointed when I first listened to them I took them back as I thought they were faulty and had them replaced. On my second pair and nope: weak, weak bass.

    Thought maybe I was just spoiled for bass (I use V-Moda M100s when I'm at work and wanted the Bluebuds for running), but even compared to my £30 pair of Sennheiser CX-180s some of the lower and more ambient sounds from various tracks simply weren't audible. In fact, I got a deeper bass drum sound when listening to them on an old £10 pair of earphones I had kicking about the flat.

    To be fair, these headphones aren't bad for people that don't like bass - they have an excellent midrange, but I got these for running and who cares about midrange when you're running?

    In addition, they are fiddly to set up and seriously overpriced at £150. I'll be taking these back tomorrow and expect to find a better pair of running headphones for less than half the price.

    Good sound but definitely not sweat proof,

    I recently bought a pair of these for training as they claim to be sweat proof. They aren't the first pair lasted about a month before they broke. The staff in the apple store were very helpful and replaced them with no fuss.

    The second pair then lasted about 5 weeks before they also stopped working. I took these back to apple and got a refund.

    If you want a pair of wireless headphones for training and you sweat a lot don't buy these they won't last and at £149.95 they are also a bit on the expensive side. Also I found that they don't staying very well.

    Although I must say that the staff in the apple store were very helpful and understanding on both occasions the I went in.
