Clockwise for audio books, pods, etc. Great for activities where you do not want to block audio from your surroundings. Because they let in all the sound, they are not recommended in loud environments. It is enough that it is windy and you walk on a busy road and it becomes difficult to hear. Unbeatable during the warmer seasons when you are out running or hiking in calmer environments. In winter I have not tested them. + Fits well, is stable and is comfortable + Can wear them all day without irritating + Water resistant + Weighs 26 grams (!) + Good battery life + Works smoothly with glasses + Durable + Buttons for volume / change track / pause etc are available + Easy to connect to phone - Music does badly in them. If it's simpler music (think an instrument) it works, but if we talk about a more complex soundscape, they are quite useless - The large button gives off a sound feedback that is far too high in volume - When the headphones are switched on and not used, they click and sound a little now and then (possibly Monday copies) - No sleep function, but has good battery life in standby - Can not remember multiple devices, you need to sync again - The arch protrudes at the back, which makes them: - A little impractical with long hair - A little impractical to lie down with - Very impractical with a hat It is not a faultless product by any means, but Aftershokz Aeropex does what they are supposed to do really, really well. At the time of writing, there are no direct competitors in the market to compare them with.

The snap is more functional than the simplest loop pedals, but nothing for those who are experienced runners. Quite ok for those who want to start running at home on the house and want to be able to save your creations to an internal memory. Do not use for live performances or the like. + Two pedals are smoother than one. Record / play on one and stop at others. + Up to two tracks simultaneously. More fun than one. However, far too little if you want to create loop music more seriously and require maximum control / function. + Stylish, stylish + Built-in metronome / trumbeats that you can easily launch your own tempo to + Up to 100 storage spaces. Perfect for recording and saving music on-the-fly. + Volume control for both tracks and metronome / trumbeat. + Can be connected to computer to add / remove items. - Very complicated to switch between the two tracks while playing / loops. Building a "verse" and then switching to a "chorus" is just to be forgotten. - Take a while to learn all "commands" - Sometimes hangs for me so that I have to restart it (break the electricity supply). Maybe just my unit but it feels really great when you are in the middle of something. - Has some totally useless functions / effects that take a lot of space / are in focus in marketing and on the pedal. E.g. "bend down" and "lo-fi". It is audio filter that reminds you of edgy neo-cyberpunk B movies from the 90s. At best, you laugh because it's so bad.

Good screen that does it. + Good price, good specs + Stylish, no ugly gaming decor - The screen reflects much more light than I would have liked. Märk's clear daytime. - Pretty much "light bleed", noticed when the screen is on but the computer is off. "Would have liked to see that it was possible to raise a little more - The buttons and menus are not very intuitive. Takes a long time before learning where all the settings are.

Is not an audio file but appreciates good naps. Has previously Grado SR80 and B & W P5 Wireless. Bought these on the block when I was looking for a closed nap with clear sound and removable cord. Sound: Very clear sound. Gives a sound image with completely different detail than regular tricks that push all the sound on the face of one. Therefore, it is ideal for music that delivers "soundwalls" (eg post rock, progressive metal) that often becomes gritty in common napkins. Neutral base that does not take over in any way. Sounds great with well-produced discs. The high register is somewhat dry if I compare with my other naps. Heard clearly on cymbals. May be a habit. Comfort: The trunks are very lightweight, which makes a lot of comfort. The ear suits are big and hold my ears. The lungs do not push over the head so much, but rather relaxed, even when wearing glasses. Building quality feels solid and the choice of materials feels well thought out. Other: Lostbarsladd is a big plus for me. The cord is about 120 cm which feels very right in my opinion. On the cord is a small remote control for Apple products as well as microphone. On Android, the volume buttons do not work, so I can not increase the volume other than via my phone when I listen via the phone. Have tested the microphone a little bit. The sound it picks up is not to hurry over and "dropping" a little bit from time to time. Works well for easier phone calls, but for something more serious (discord, longer conversation) you probably want a proper microphone. Myself, I have a V-Moda BoomPro that you can connect to the naps to get a full-featured headset. --- Note that these tricks (generation 2) have improved sound (especially bass if you're going to say what others say) as of generation 1. Dealers tend to mix them, so make sure you buy generation 2. Unfortunately, generation 2 does not exist in as many colors. Fought for a while on the H7 wireless, but read that you get better sound with a cord to them. Then I'm getting a little wireless.

Good for you who have Android phone and want to listen to music outdoors / at work / on the go. Have you basically thought about using them for something else I would not recommend them. + Smooth, handsome, sitting well. + Insulates well both inward and outward + Really good battery life + Bluetooth works clockwise with Android (has Huawei P10) + Can be used as a headset for the phone + The sound is okay - Expensive. You do not pay for the sound - you pay for brand, design, function, etc! - Experience that they span / push a lot over the ears. Suits best if you have a narrow head. Do you wear glasses, it negatively affects your comfort. - Low-melted cranes appeared after 1 year. Notice if there is low volume in the naps. - Needs synca about the bluetooth every time on my iPhone 6s. Annoying to have to go into the settings and keep on each time to use them. - Can not they operate wirelessly (bluetooth) with PC. The lurks think they are not used, and shut down after 10-15 minutes even though they are used. This sleep function can not be disabled. - You only get a cord that is short and thin. It is also bent in one way at one end so that it fits into the design of the nap. This means that you can not replace the cord with a regular cord if this should break. If you are only interested in good sound then I would buy a pair of Grado SR80e, ATH M50x, or other more well-known good study oils. Sounds better and is three times cheaper. Is wireless a must I would look for B & W P7, B & O H7, and maybe Vmoda CrossFire V2.

Have mine for about 8 months. Newly purchased via the 3,2k block with tele2's student discount. + Fast, stylish and smooth. + Relatively durable with metal back + Less bloatware than Samsung + A personal UI (EMUI) that feels intuitive. I can not really masturbate my phone, and want something that works well from the start. You do not have to app drawer which is a big plus. - The camera app stopped working after half a year. Seems quite unusual when I did not find others with the same problem. Could be solved by loading an alternate camera app, but a bit bothered of course. - The speaker has started to crash after about 8 months. The sound becomes "weak" and fade: sometimes in and out when using youtube - Hard to find shells and shields. The protection that is on the phone seems quite ok though. Accessories are definitely not in stores, in addition to the usual hard transparent shell that does not go home with everyone. Can add that I drop my phone in the floor quite often and it gets some bangs. But I personally think that they will be able to endure.
