This review is from: Rosewill Power Bass Canal Headphone RH-BUD168
Pros: Rubber fish skeleton holds wire in an organized manner when storing. This earned the ear buds 1 egg.
Cons: I bought 3 pairs in the same order and what a mistake that was. The sound is awful on all three pairs, sounds like someone is singing in a box and really heavy bass. I compared them to my stock Ipod ear buds and my Yamaha ear buds on the same song(s) and those ear buds sounded great so it is definitely the horrible Rosewill ear buds. The worst sounding ear buds I have ever heard. They are also bulky and heavy. Forget about exercising with them, they will fall out of your ears because of the weight regardless of which size ear bud cushion you have affixed to them. Stay away from these
Other Thoughts: I use them as my emergency ear buds in case I am in a desperate situation.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Yamaha - In-Ear Headphones (EPH-20) BLACK
Pros: Very light, can't even tell they are in your ears. They fit very comfortably in the ear and do not fall out. I run and workout with these in my ears and I never have a problem with them falling out. The sound is clear, not to much base.
Cons: none really
Other Thoughts: I am going to buy another pair when they go on sale again.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: SONY 7.1-Channel Home Theater A/V Receiver STR-DH810
Pros: Sound is good. Good deal for the price. Has S-Air capability for wireless rear surround speakers. Multiple HDMI inputs. Doesn't run hot.
Cons: Manual is not the easiest to follow. Still trying to figure out how to increase the sound level in just the center channel. Sony discontinued the S-Air amplifier need to run the rear speakers wirelessly which is one of the reasons I purchased it(this is a 2010 model so what the heck?). The Sony customer support rep I spoke with for new products wasn't aware of the amplifier I was talking about (although there is only one) and after I gave him the model # of the amp (WAHTSA1) he had to confirm it w/ his mgr. He then proceeded to give me the # of a substitute product (AIRA 10R) which does not accomplish anything remotely to what I originally needed and then tried to sell me a refurbed amp. Is there a new wireless amp coming or not? No one knows (not even Sony reps) so the S-Air capability is useless at this point in time. Also the receiver turned off by itself while my wife was watching TV. I thought it may have been a power hiccup but the TV remained on as did the FIOS box. Will monitor
Other Thoughts: I don't believe Sony knows which direction they are going in with this S-Air proprietary technology. They sure do not let their reps know. It would be nice if the Sony rep had some more knowledge of their product as well. I going to monitor the "turn off" power issue further and may have to edit the review sometime in the future. All in all I am so far happy with the purchase. Need to figure out how to adjust the volume in just the center speaker though. 2 Eggs off for the S-Air issue and the confusing manual. Make sure you read the manual on the initial set-up because the receiver didn't work (no sound)until I reset it as instructed in the manual but not instructed to in the quick set-up instructions.READ FULL REVIEW
