After the effusive reviews about the IE8 I ordered this headset. The sound is really bombastic and the headphones makes a very robust impression. Unfortunately, the remote control does not work reliably on my iPhone 3GS compatible. Sometimes a double was recognized for track skipping and sometimes not. Also striking is the poor tactile feedback of the control key. I do not know if this is an isolated incident or whether this is, this machine always so. That's when this price is unacceptable for me. the remote control of my Sennheiser CX680i works perfectly. Another tip: If you do not perform the ear adapters to the desired result, you can even try with Comply Foam Tips. The manufacturer recommends the T500 or TX500. It would be helpful if other reviewers could describe their experiences with the function of the remote control here. If I knew that this is where I ordered device to a faulty acted and not present a design flaw, I would order this again smooth headphones due to the excellent sounds.
UPDATE: Since I could not believe that with such a high-priced device there is a design flaw, I have the headphones ado again ordered me - and lo and behold: the remote control works just like it should. The pressure point of the middle button is now available as one would expect. If only the negative connotation that the defective device has come through the quality control. The only negative thing, which I still have to mention is the fact that a clear crackling can be heard when you move the 3.5mm plug into the socket back and forth. Otherwise, it remains. The sound is absolutely outrageous. A Klipsch X10i compared sounded worse for me. But listening impressions are a very subjective matter. Therefore, I now forgive full 5 stars and would recommend these headphones to anyone who wants to enjoy his music without restrictions on iPhone.
