Bluetooth

_
"If youre tired of wireless headphones that disappoint in their audio quality over Bluetooth, go for these."
_
"They both had very good sound for Bluetooth headsets, but not as good as hardwired sets."
_

_
"The Bluetooth function works well with music on my phone."

"Also, the bluetooth worked great."

Button

Button:
"One area that I'm most disappointed with is the layout of the buttons...I don't have a better solution, but I think the could have used larger buttons with textured dots to identify or spread out further, but in time it should come easy."
_
"Issues:It's sometimes hard to feel which button is which."
_
"This is my second pair of these phones and the button that controls power and Bluetooth on off has broken on both pairs."
_
"Unfortunately I am finding the buttons that control volume Bluetooth etc."
_
"My only problem is regarding the tiny buttons."
_
"Would it have been that hard to design a round, red button further up the side? "
_
"Recently received these as a birthday gift (wish list); I liked the build of the product, good buttons, good functionality, i. e. pressing the side turned the voice command on in my iphone 6p, it had good sound and bass quality, but that's where it stops.1."
_
"Also, due to a distinct set of control buttons on each side, I was able to use that as L R side guidance without even needing to look up earcup marking."
_
"Here, the middle button is smooth while skip buttons have a bump to easily distinguish these as you slide your finger."
_
"To distinguish the buttons without looking at it, Power button is smooth while Volume buttons have a bump so you can find them easier by sliding a finger."

Cable

Cable:
"All the time, these headsets were useful for several months until the cable got damaged and like that, I had nothing to hear my music anymore."
_
"The worst part is the stereo cable they shipped with it only has 3-connector stereo plugs, not 4-connector stereo + mic plugs, so you can't use it wired with a phone or computer as a headset."
_
"My only real complaint is the auxiliary cable is not very durable, after being jostled once or twice the input became distorted."
_
"Compared to my previous Bose QC15 which not only being overly expensive, it has a long & dangling cord, and battery life is not that great, and worst of all one side of the ear phone stopped working after 1 year of purchase."
_
"Battery life, sound quality (Bluetooth & cord sound almost the same), comfortable, will run thru a cord without being turned on, nice case when tossing them in you bag and looks good."
_
"First let me state that when I received these the charging cord was missing so when I reported it to customer service they sent me a brand new pair with one day delivery at no charge to me."
_
"Charging is via a USB cable, and it charges at a decent rate and stays charged for a decent amount of time."
_
"The MEE Air Fi Matrix2 headset is significantly more expensive but has a nicer more luxurious finish and comes with a nice hardshell case to protect the headset and cables."
_
"It comes with a really thin aux cable, but I bought some nicer more durable ones that work well."
_
"They come with a nice travel case, a USB cable, and pin-jack cable to direct plug into a headphone jack."
_
"I have not tried the sound with the included cable and the sound quality is good for a Bluetooth headphones."

Charging

Charging:
"If that wasn't good enough it stopped charging not long after."
_
"I'm now suddenly having major problems trying to charge the battery on this thing."
_
"The only minor hassle is the need for charging, but the Matrix is so easy to charge and lasts a ridiculous long time (more than a day for me!"
_
"I often go out without charging them because I just forget and get scared that I may be without my tunes for the rest of the day."
_
"First let me state that when I received these the charging cord was missing so when I reported it to customer service they sent me a brand new pair with one day delivery at no charge to me."

Comfortable

Comfortable:
"All I want is a decent set of earphones, ones that are comfortable and sound good (not great, which I know you can't get for this price)."
_
"The sound quality is great as well... My only complaints would be the comfort & heat level."
_
"These not only sound 100 times better but that areextremely comfortable and the battery life is ridiculous."
_
"also very comfortable and pretty light."
_
"The comfort is great, and it blocks out outside sound as well as not letting sound leak out."
_
"I just put these on two days ago and are so comfortable (easy to change)...In addition to the comfort level increase, they have changed the Matrix2 sound dramatically."
_
"Great sound for the price and also very comfortable I like them ..."

Connection

Connection:
"Also, these headphones can only be connected to a single device at a time, and that could be a disadvantage for some use-cases."
_
"Fortunately, the MEE AF62 has learned from its competitor's mistakes and reinforced these connections."
_
"But call quality and bluetooth connection were terrible, same issues happened to the 2nd replacement."
_
"I nearly went deaf the first couple of times I synced with a new device (ipad, s4).- Annoying blue LED light when connected."
_
"Negatives:the female voice that says: power on, and connected is a bit tacky and I don't like it."
_
"On the plus side, the feedback when pairing and connecting is great (although a bit annoying to a technical user), and the sound quality so far seems really good."
_
"Now I did have a couple issues with the Sony headset as well, mostly lag when streaming steam games to my Shield, and not capable of connecting to multiple devices, but they sound far superior to these with a lot more space and clarity."
_
"Just a quick review, this headset produces high quality sound and reliable connectivity via bluetooth, and is flexible with connections via bluetooth or a 3.5mm plug."
_
"I paired it to my Geartist Bluetooth Audio Transceiver as a transmitter connected to the output of my Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi sound card and if really sounds great."
_
"Bluetooth connection with my Kindle works perfect and has an impressive range."
_

Control

Control:
"Unfortunately the inconvenient controls made me return these."
_
"I find controls hard to operate while you are wearing the headphones."
_
"Controls are not easy to see and hard to access, the ear pieces are much smaller than I anticipated, so wear time is shortened by ear discomfort."
_
"This is my second pair of these phones and the button that controls power and Bluetooth on off has broken on both pairs."
_
"Unfortunately I am finding the buttons that control volume Bluetooth etc."
_
"Even after a couple weeks of use, I did not like the controls for volume or off on, I did not find them easy to find or use."
_
"The second one was very nice but the volume control on the headphones controlled the ipad volume, and the lowest setting was sometimes not as low as I wanted."
_
"I like the sound a lot and the charge lasts a long time and controls are excellent too."
_
"Very lightweight and easy to use with the controls on the underside of both ear cups."
_
"The controls work pretty well, but it may take some time mapping out the positions in your brain before you get used to it."
_
"Also, due to a distinct set of control buttons on each side, I was able to use that as L R side guidance without even needing to look up earcup marking."

Design

Design:
"Would it have been that hard to design a round, red button further up the side? "
_
"*They have a kind of weird angle design to the band."
_
"I don't love the fake carbon fiber element of the design, but I can live with it."
_
"That's the only negative thing I can come up with to say about the physical design."
_
"They will not be the absolute best sounding headphones you can buy - they are not designed to be."
_
"These Wireless headphones offer a fun design that is also very durable."
_
"Quality of solid materials, design & durability leaves much to be desired."
_
"The carbon fiber design adds a nice touch but is purely cosmetic."
_
"Great quality sound and design."
_
"Despite this, I think they are a well designed product and wouldn't hesitate to purchase again."

Fit

Fit:
"My only concern was that they would be uncomfortable, but they fit great!"
_
"The only negative is that the cups don't quite fit over the bottom of my earlobes like my Bose QC2s."
_
"My ears don't completely fit and gets uncomfortable after an hour"
_
"The first was the Runaway, which I bought a while back on their site for travel purposes, and while I really liked the Runaway because of its lightness and its ease to pair, I eventually had to give it up because of the fit problems I was having with them being on-ear and getting loose on my head."
_
"If you had a smaller head than me these would probably not fit too well."
_
"So it didn't feel like a good fit, and I worried that they would slip around off when I moved."
_
"Comfortable fit for a large head."
_
"As far as the fit comfort levelI have found that I can wear them for about 6 hours before I start to get a bit of ache from them."
_
"The sound is good, but these are very big headphones, they barely fit and I have a large head."
_
"I came across these and they seemed like the perfect fit, so I ordered and they arrived in record time (thanks Amazon!"
_
"The padded headband also greatly contributes to its comfort and light fit."

Heavy

Heavy:
"Well I had the AF52's for about two years in the gym and at work through messy hard hot heavy workouts and labor, before I broke them by being careless."
_
"I shot too much ,357 mag back in the day before hearing protection became popular and worked around too much heavy equipment and my hearing is damaged at the high end."
_
"I hate bass heavy headphones like beats."
_
"Both headsets charged well, lasted many hours of heavy use, and paired easily with my Galaxy Note 4 phone and Amazon Kindle Fire HD."
_
"The sound is balanced (unlike the other bass heavy options on the market) and the Bluetooth is reliable."
_
"Before purchasing these, I was a little afraid of how heavy they would feel on my head BUT they are so comfortable!"
_
"Battery life was incredible and lasts for a week easily with heavy use!"
_
"Pros:-Build Quality seems to be good, premium feel without it getting too heavy."

Level

Level:
"The sound quality is great as well... My only complaints would be the comfort & heat level."
_
"I just put these on two days ago and are so comfortable (easy to change)...In addition to the comfort level increase, they have changed the Matrix2 sound dramatically."
_
"Volume level was equally as well."
_
"They also sound great at a low level!"
_
"I'm still giving them 5 stars because of them being easy to drive to satisfying levels of volume, having Bluetooth 4.0, their portability and the included carrying case."
_
"One thing to mention about the Brightech transmitter though, is that it is easily overloaded, so you have to watch your input volume level so it doesn't start clipping (mostly on heavy bass)."
_

Light

Light:
"I nearly went deaf the first couple of times I synced with a new device (ipad, s4).- Annoying blue LED light when connected."
_
"also very comfortable and pretty light."
_
"The padded headband also greatly contributes to its comfort and light fit."
_
"However, the Matrix2s were more light, comfortable, and had the bonus of being Bluetooth."
_
"its very very light i can use it for many hour without any problem or sense pain in my earglad i purchase this product"
_
"Light, comfortable, versatile, and easy to operate."

Listening

Listening:
"The ear cups are uncomfortable for extended listening periods and I will probably purchase a set of larger ear cups for them."
_
"Also missing that deep bass that I seek in my audio listening experience."
_
"Very good audio quality over bluetooth makes these a nice listening device."
_
"listening it to it at a not-to-loud volume had decent leakage."
_
"These things sound great and are really comfortable for extended listening even if you wear glasses."
_
"But if you receive a call during your music listening session, its always convenient to be able to pick it up without taking headphones off."
_
"But sometimes you just want to enjoy a private listening session where sports headphones won't provide enough comfort and speakers are the opposite of privacy."

Microphone

Microphone:
"The microphone capability is not that great (had for the receiving person top hear you), but I am not using the headset for this feature anyway."
_
"They were pretty good but mic was a problem."
_
"Sound quality was pretty good but mic quality was horrible; returned it."
_
"I purchased this headphone after checking all the great reviews but I am not satisfied with the quality of microphone using bluetooth services."
_
"Microphone - probably worst part here."
_
"The only drawback I've seen so far is that the built-in microphone may not be that great."
_
"Pros:- Great overall sound (the music is extremely clear, and you can hear each instrument very well)- Amazing battery life, charges fast too- Very affordable- Mic is very good, picks up even low volume sounds- A very sturdy headphone case is included with it."
_
"Must have and microphone works great"
_
"A great headset with nice audio quality and a clear microphone, and in a nice sturdy carrying case too."
_
"My first objective was met at a solid 4 star level (keeping in mind the price and that they're Bluetooth headphones).As noted, the second key feature I wanted was a decent microphone."
_
"To start, here's a quick rundown of what I was looking for: A budget friendly over the ear headphones with decent, balanced sound and a reliable microphone to take Skype FaceTime calls."
_

Music

Music:
"All the time, these headsets were useful for several months until the cable got damaged and like that, I had nothing to hear my music anymore."
_
"Problems:-The biggest problem for me was that the headphones would skip in the music, where both pieces of the headphone would suddenly cut off and resume a couple milliseconds afterwards."
_
"Occasionally when I press the stop pause button on the headset it does not respond but I can easily pause music on the phone itself when that happens."
_
"Only cons are 1) accidentally leaving your phone in another room while its playing music and 2) the sound occassionally broke up if my phone was in the wrong pocket (the one on the opposite side of my body from the signal receiving side of the headphones."
_
"The Bluetooth function works well with music on my phone."
_
"They are comfy, the battery last for ages (I charged it once, and used for a week, I guess more than the 22 hours stated in the box, and there was no need to recharging it)The sound quality is really good, I enjoy my music (I listed from Metal to Classic Music) and there is no complaint at all."
_
"My husband is really picky and he says these are good and music good....that is what he wanted them for."
_
"Pros:- Great overall sound (the music is extremely clear, and you can hear each instrument very well)- Amazing battery life, charges fast too- Very affordable- Mic is very good, picks up even low volume sounds- A very sturdy headphone case is included with it."

Noise

Noise:
"If you plan on purchasing these for airline travel (as I did) beware that they are not noise canceling and everything happening 3 rows behind you can be heard through these."
_
"The sound isolation is good, although obviously not as good as some of the high-end active noise cancelling units."
_
"Even walking down the street I appreciate that they don't block much outside noise."
_
"They LOVE the fact that it is wireless and the sound and the noise elimination."
_
"The ear cups are large enough to cup my ears (as opposed to sit on top of them) and are very well padded - provides for great (passive) noise isolation!"
_
"The only thing the high end ones have over these is active noise canceling which really isnt necessary as these do block the majority of outside noise really well."
_
"The sound is actually far better than I expected, they're loud enough and sound clear enough that they will easily cut out most background noise--but they are open ear, meaning someone sitting next to you will hear the sounds coming out of the set."
_

Price

Price:
"Not the best sound but really good for the price"
_
"All I want is a decent set of earphones, ones that are comfortable and sound good (not great, which I know you can't get for this price)."
_
"If you think spending a few hundred on headphones is a good use of money, then I'm sure these won't be good enough for you."
_
"the control buttons are not flimsy which is good since I really hate cheap and brittle buttons that easily break."
_
"There are many wired headphones for the price that won't sound as good (especially with the HM5 pads), let alone wireless headphones."
_
"If I didn't know their price and I pitted them against $300 cans, I could find a few minors faults (material, not sound), but nothing that would stop me from buying them."
_
"Overall a very nice product and worth the money."
_
"At $90, it is a good medium step between inexpensive headphone and the more expensive Bose headphones."
_
"Great for the price! "
_
"Great price for a great product."
_
"They are very light, which to some people may make them feel cheap, but I love that part."

Quality

Quality:
"The sound quality is ridiculous (non audiophile but I pretend I am anyways)."
_
"Now, sound quality isn't all the greatest."
_
"Also, while it supports AAC for high quality sound from iPhones, it has it's drawbacks when pausing and playing, as the sound can skip and get out of sync momentarily."
_
"Zero problem with battery life or sound quality."
_
"The build quality was the biggest surprise....I was expecting to compromise on feel and construction, but they are well built...Honestly..couldn't ask for a better set of phones."
_
"My only problems are that I could use a bit higher volume and the standard ear pads are more on-ear than over-ear for me (which I solved by replacing stock ones with brainwavz pads).I would normal give this 4 stars based on the qualities above but I received a faulty product and as a result they earned 5 stars."
_
"They are comfy, the battery last for ages (I charged it once, and used for a week, I guess more than the 22 hours stated in the box, and there was no need to recharging it)The sound quality is really good, I enjoy my music (I listed from Metal to Classic Music) and there is no complaint at all."
_
"Just a quick review, this headset produces high quality sound and reliable connectivity via bluetooth, and is flexible with connections via bluetooth or a 3.5mm plug."
_
"The sound quality is fantastic."
_
"The two things I was looking for in my new set of headphones were 1) good sound quality, and 2) long battery life."
_
"Very nice quality for bluetooth, that is, unless you're using Windows 7.This is not the directly the fault of MEE."

Range

Range:
"If the battery runs dead, or if I walk outside the reception range, the Bluetooth doesn't automatically reconnect."
_
"I was most worried about the range and comfortability but both are exceeding my expectations."
_
"I see others talk about not great sound without adjusting eq but that's because there's such a vast range of frequencies and blends depending on what you're listening to and the source."
_
"Range is pretty decent (better) compared to other Bluetooth devices I own, but could be better."
_
"Bluetooth connection with my Kindle works perfect and has an impressive range."
_
"All I was looking for was a decent looking feeling headset that sits comfortably for at least 3 hours, sounds great, and has reliable Bluetooth connection with good range and battery life (I know that was probably too much to ask for in the first place for a budget of 100bucks max)."
_
"I feel those were all reasonable expectations in the $100 range."
_
"They sync and go with my Samsung Galaxy seamlessly and have excellent range of 40 feet or more."

Service

Service:
"But I had gotten very bad engagement with the local delivery company who had failed twice in its delivery services which really pissed me off"
_
"First let me state that when I received these the charging cord was missing so when I reported it to customer service they sent me a brand new pair with one day delivery at no charge to me."
_
"I purchased this headphone after checking all the great reviews but I am not satisfied with the quality of microphone using bluetooth services."
_
"While I am on the phone using the headsets a voice message comes on that says Phone one not connected, Connection one connected While this message is on the voice of the customer service rep on the other end is faint and unable to be heard."
_
"These folks have unparalleled customer service, as well as product without any equal in clarity."
_
"On a private note i want to thank Amazing_Mobile for having a wonderful customer service who makes your life easier by breaking down any questions you might have I definitely would like to be in business with them in the near future."
_
"So far, these work well, and Amazon's customer service deserves high praise!"
_
"*** Durability and Customer Support - I haven't owned the Matrix 2 long enough to say how long they would last but they seem to have a very good track record and have good customer service for any concerns."
_
"But I need something that works good with an I phoneFor those of you that want these you will like them there made well the customer service is outstanding mine keep cutting out and MEEElectronics took back for research to find out why my problem was happening and fedexed me a new pair but I'm still having a problem so the long and short android and anything but a active IPhone work great."

Size

Size:
"My only complaint is that the pads are a little small."
_
"But the part in which you adjust the size just broke."
_
"My only (very small) complaint is that the USB latch on the headphones is difficult to open."
_
"My one complaint was the size of the ear pads I wish they were a touch bigger, but this isnt a deal breaker because I replaced them with velour anyway (if you have larger ears it might affect comfort slightly) the ear pads are relatively soft and dont make me sweat like some of the others I tried."
_
"My biggest complaint was that the earpads were too small on my ears."
_
"Unfortunately, wireless full size headphones are not as common as in-ear models, they cost a lot more, and some add noise canceling which could be either a blessing or a curse."
_
"The earpads are a bit small for my ears, but they aren't terribly uncomfortable."
_
"They are not tight on my head (I have a pretty average sized head) and fit comfortably over my ears (ears are on the small side)."
_
"In my opinion it was very impressive to review a design of full size Bluetooth wireless headphones released a few years back where it still feels ahead of the curve in comparison to some other recent releases."
_
"The over the ears fit my ears perfectly but I have small ears."
_
"It has a pretty sleek design for its size and the controls are laid out nicely."

Sound

Sound:
"The sound quality is ridiculous (non audiophile but I pretend I am anyways)."
_
"If this device somehow makes these Matrix2 cans sound better I will update my review, but as of now these aren't as great as everyone else claims them to be."
_
"Now, sound quality isn't all the greatest."
_
"Also, while it supports AAC for high quality sound from iPhones, it has it's drawbacks when pausing and playing, as the sound can skip and get out of sync momentarily."
_
"Zero problem with battery life or sound quality."
_
"Also note I compared these to speakers which were able to be listened to at Best Buy (had a lot of bass... and not just beats).. and these, though they dont have the extreme bass, were miles away in terms of overall sound in both the highs and mids, with very good lows."
_
"I must admit that I'm very surprised at how good these headphones sound."
_
"Now I did have a couple issues with the Sony headset as well, mostly lag when streaming steam games to my Shield, and not capable of connecting to multiple devices, but they sound far superior to these with a lot more space and clarity."
_
"I really wanted to keep these, because they sound great in a quiet environment."
_
"They are comfy, the battery last for ages (I charged it once, and used for a week, I guess more than the 22 hours stated in the box, and there was no need to recharging it)The sound quality is really good, I enjoy my music (I listed from Metal to Classic Music) and there is no complaint at all."

Support

Support:
"Would like to say that my only disappointment was that the 2014 version no longer supports multipoint connectivity."
_
"I had a problem with the Runaways so I called tech support and while I explained my situation they not only took care of the problem promptly they also offered me a way to get the Matrix headphones on what they called a warranty exchange program from the Runaways !"
_
"Let me explain why:I received the most phenomenal customer support I could hope for."
_
"Seriously, its amazing how rarely I have to charge these-Buttons are easy to use after you get used to where they are after a few days-Standardized micro USB charging (older version of these was outdated mini USB)-Meelectronics support is excellent if you have product-related questionsThere are however a few issues gripes.1) The battery low spoken warning is extremely irritating and annoying."
_
"*** Durability and Customer Support - I haven't owned the Matrix 2 long enough to say how long they would last but they seem to have a very good track record and have good customer service for any concerns."

Travel

Travel:

"They come with a nice travel case, a USB cable, and pin-jack cable to direct plug into a headphone jack."
_
"They're comfortable, have good sound quality, dont drop connections, come with a nice travel case, and aren't at all expensive considering what cheap bad and expensive headphones each cost."
_
"The first was the Runaway, which I bought a while back on their site for travel purposes, and while I really liked the Runaway because of its lightness and its ease to pair, I eventually had to give it up because of the fit problems I was having with them being on-ear and getting loose on my head."

USB

USB:

_
"The only comment I have, is not necesarilly bad but was a surprise for me, the charger is not micro USB it is mini USB which I believe will make it more durable, I mention it because I will have to carry the cable instead of using any of the ton of micro usb I already have."

Voice

Voice:
"Voice over: One annoying caveat is the voice over lady."
_
"Only 2 minor complaints-- the on off pairing voice is really loud and abrasive and the headband makes the top of my head overly warm, and I have a feeling its from electrical current, not just insulation."
_
"Real issue when synced with a Samsung S4 because accidentally hitting power button on headphones can cause the S4 to make phone calls, bring up voice controls or do other weird random things."
_
"Negatives:the female voice that says: power on, and connected is a bit tacky and I don't like it."
_
"PRO's:+ Phenomenal Battery Life+ Great Sound Quality+ Easy To Use+ Connect In The Blink Of An Eye+ The Have NFC+ Wired, or Wireless+ Really Comfortable+ Charge Quickly+ Built-In Mic For Voice Calls+ Physical Controls On The HeadphonesCON's:- No Noise Cancelling Mic- Plastic Build Does Make Them Feel Cheap At Times- Voice Calls Aren't The Best- More For Medium - Small EarsWrap-Up:I love these headphones."
_
"Recently received these as a birthday gift (wish list); I liked the build of the product, good buttons, good functionality, i. e. pressing the side turned the voice command on in my iphone 6p, it had good sound and bass quality, but that's where it stops.1."
_
"The voice confirmation of powering off, on, and pairing are wonderful, especially if handling these in low light environments."
_
"So if you were like me and bought these thinking you would be able to use this headset with DNS 12 premium (Bluetooth Version) (Dragon Naturallyspeaking) Think about it again I want to say the matrix headset works fantastic with VTT OR STT (Voice to text or Speech to text) using android or Google Now desktop extension in chrome DNS is so BUGGY and SOOO incredibly laggy that you would be wise just staying away from DNS 12 any version altogether!"
_
"(3b) Sound quality for voice, Bluetooth: No complaints here."
_
"These are more than adequate for voice."

Volume

Volume:
"My only problems are that I could use a bit higher volume and the standard ear pads are more on-ear than over-ear for me (which I solved by replacing stock ones with brainwavz pads).I would normal give this 4 stars based on the qualities above but I received a faulty product and as a result they earned 5 stars."
_

_
"Even after a couple weeks of use, I did not like the controls for volume or off on, I did not find them easy to find or use."

"Also, functionality with iPhone in terms of using headphones to turn up down volume as well as answer and hang up calls works perfectly."
_
"The second one was very nice but the volume control on the headphones controlled the ipad volume, and the lowest setting was sometimes not as low as I wanted."
_
"Volume level was equally as well."
_
"Pros:- Great overall sound (the music is extremely clear, and you can hear each instrument very well)- Amazing battery life, charges fast too- Very affordable- Mic is very good, picks up even low volume sounds- A very sturdy headphone case is included with it."
_
"I'm still giving them 5 stars because of them being easy to drive to satisfying levels of volume, having Bluetooth 4.0, their portability and the included carrying case."

Windows

Windows:
"I've uninstalled, reinstalled, manually deleted registry entries, re-paired, and eventually had to do a System Restore on Windows because my system was quite broken."
_
"Until two days ago I wanted to use them with my desktop PC running Windows 7...I just have not been able to get my Windows desktop PC to let the CSR Harmony Software Stack (Yes, you'll need this new bundle of joy that I had to learn about!"
_
"I had a lot of problems syncing them with my laptop but that was because I have Windows 8 and bluetooth drivers on Windows 8 don't work which is maybe why the sound quality is so bad when there wireless."
_
"So trying to use a BT headset with windows can be terrible as a result."
_
"Windows BT is terrible."

_
"See here for problems with no answers from the company whom develops the closed-source software a person needs to get good sound quality on Windows:https: forum."
_
"Very nice quality for bluetooth, that is, unless you're using Windows 7.This is not the directly the fault of MEE."
_
"s) This is the first time in my life that a device was easier to install on a Linux machine than a Windows OS."
_
"Second quality improvement: using WASAPI (bit perfect Windows sound) with a suitable player (I use MusicBee)This involves replacing the Windows sound driver with, for example, the AMD sound driver and selecting WASAPI, rather than Direct Sound, in the playerWhen all of this is in place the sound quality is outstanding - try playing a 24 bit FLAC to see what I mean"
