This review is from: MartinLogan Mikros 90 Refrence On-Ear Headphones, Black
Pros: Great Sound
Pause/Resume works with Android, which is about the best one can hope for in a "Not Designed for Android" world.
Cons: Fit is TERRIBLE. The pads literally role forward off one's ears, no matter how carefully positioned. They simply won't maintain a proper position/seal if worn as intended. However, there's a potential work-around...
Other Thoughts: I DID figure out that the person who designed these must have REAR-FACING ears. If the headphones are REVERSED, L/R, then they actually fit very nicely, if a bit snugly. Of course, with L/R sound channels also reversed, that's a separate disaster. But, I've located a 3.5mm M/F L/R Channel Reversing Adapter which promises to cure the problem. We'll see. If not, I'm savvy enough to rewire the headset itself, though I'm hoping to avoid a such tedious endeavour. For $60, I consider these a good deal.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Good BackUPS. Great price.
Cons: The supplied USB cable has a non-standard pin-out. Meaning, I couldn't use that cable from the Targus to charge my phone from a USB outlet, but COULD use the USB cable from my phone to charge the Targus battery. I am discarding the Targus-supplied cable and carrying a more universal one from an older Nokia phone. No big deal, but why have a USB/microUSB cable that doesn't work with everything you carry?
Other Thoughts: While in Kathmandu, I kept losing my internet signal, as my travel router was powered on the mains via a USB A/C adapter, and power in Kathmandu is off/on/off/on a LOT. I finally thought to power my APB27US from the mains and simultaneously run my USB-powered router directly from the Targus battery. It functioned like a miniUPS, and also charged during the process. Worked like a dream. I got this as backup for my phone, but this unanticipated use worked out ever so nicely. A great piece of kit. For less than $20, hard to beat.READ FULL REVIEW
