MEE audio EP-M9B-BK-MEE M9B Bluetooth Wireless Noise-Isolating In-Ear Stereo Headset

2 out of 5 eggs Works, but would not recommend for battery life alone. 01/17/2017

This review is from: MEE audio EP-M9B-BK-MEE M9B Bluetooth Wireless Noise-Isolating In-Ear Stereo Headset

Pros: Has volume control
Sounds okay to me, I'm not really an audiophile though.
Does isolate sound pretty well.
Connected to my bluetooth dongle on my pc fairly easily
Cheap
Not super heavy
Comes with 4 pair of different ear tips

Cons: Range isn't that great, I'm about 6 feet away and getting distortion. This seems to happen with my other wireless headphones(MPOW cheetahs) as well though, so It may just be the Bluetooth dongle I'm using.
I have yet to understand why the blue led needs to blink 3 times every 9 seconds, it's a waste of battery power. It's super bright and annoying since I use them in bed while watching movies at night. Now while both are in you won't notice but if your laying on a pillow and only have 1 earbud in it's incredibly distracting. Fortunately they make this stuff called electrical tape that I can put over the led. Still It's using power that I find would extend the battery life quite a bit if it weren't flashing 3 times every 9 seconds but what do I know.

Other Thoughts: Don't really use it for Mic so Idk whether that's any good.

Upon further use of these headphones I've noticed the battery life is horrible to the point I had to come back and edit this review down from 4 to 2 eggs. I don't recommend these headphones.

3 out of 5 eggs Eh...not what I expected 14 chapters in. 12/18/2016

This review is from: Final Fantasy XV - Day One Edition - Xbox One

Pros: Story is okay.
Action is kinda fun but I prefer the old style turn based which wait mode kinda gives you but not really.

Cons: Everything about this final fantasy just feels like a huge hassle.
Loading times are ridiculous and you'll be looking at them every 5 minutes unless you chocobo or drive to your destination which will take you like 15 mintues and still have small loading screens in-between so why waste the time.
Oh and fast travel is limited to parking spaces and outposts you've visited have fun with that.

Then there's the lack of monsters.
Not only are there hardly any monsters in this huge open world but there is a serious lack of variety as well.
Grinding is so painful when your party is nagging you about taking a rest after every big battle.
So you need ether constantly because max hp fall and potions don't restore max hp so grinding is expensive as well.

The "Skills" are pointless, fishing, photography, survival, cooking...what am I even playing? 14 chapters in and none of these skills matter minus cooking which you only use at camp. I've used cooking maybe 3 times and 1 time was story based.

There are the astrals/summons and oh my did they make this system pointless. I've only been able to use 1 summon and I believe it was story based never again have I seen the hold LT button. I looked online and apparently it only happens under certain conditions but I've failed to see it even during these conditions.

Side quests are boring repetitive mostly fetch this kill that rinse and repeat.
The magic system is awful you basically gather elements from spots around the world and have to bottle 3 fire/lightning/ice and can only use 1 element at a time so you have to switch your flasks out constantly if you want to use magic.

There are no real chest's in the game instead there are a ton of useless items on the ground everywhere and certain spots on your map marked "Treasure" but they are all just a sparkle on the ground and not once have I found anything interesting. I don't even think they can contain weapons or accessories, the only thing I've ever found is potions and flasks. Don't even bother with them.

The ascension menu is just wow. Okay first there are way too many grids and way too many pointless grids as opposed to the okay version in the FFXIII's crystarium menu. Now there are grid points such as "gain extra points for riding your chocobo long distances or taking long drives in the boring car. Then there are grid points that cost like 333 AP. I'm at chapter 14 out of 15 chapters and I've only unlocked 1of the 99AP nodes, let alone the 333AP nodes. Maybe you can grind that out after the game ends but at that point it's useless because there is nothing left to give you a challenge. I haven't died once in this game.
