    So what OTHER than the requested sponsored "talking points" can you give us!? anything of your own .. or are you just reading off their marketing material!?

      It truly is a strange day when you watch a youtuber and then find their comment on another completely unrelated youtuber's video, send bob my regards. xD

      @Linus Tech Tips that's an excuse because Jimmy from Jimsreviewroom still does unbiased reviews even when he gets sent products or his video is sponsored.

      @Ken M If you don't like sponsored showcases, then just don't watch them, duh.

      Are the dislike for the vid or the headphone is actually bad and he's not being honest

        Overall the headphone is decent but if you leave the mic switch on it will drain the battery.

          The promo code doesn't work at all any more, so I won't be buying these. Shame, I had my wallet out already and everything

            Funny because 4 weeks ago I commented sarcastically on this video if anyone knows some good headphones and now I accidentally stumble back here because these are looking like a good option to me

            Is this an advertisment or a review??

            But i still liked the video instead of some people hating so much at him.

                    I liked the headphones, the video was shit though..I can read too. Do they sound good? big mystery man...If saying they sound good is a conflict of interest then you are saying they sound like shit... snake oil sales pricks!

                        What was the audio recording device for this video? Sounds so sharp its static like. I can hear the piercing sound at the high end and it kind of hurts my head. First time I have ever felt the need to comment on a video at all. I am using a razer kraken v2 chroma usb for this with just a base calibration. Anyway.....peace. \V/ PLus the "sssss" noises Linus makes are the worst culprit.

                                                    I think a big reason behind this outrage is that this is a genuine video people wanted from you- the best cheap anc to buy. A lot of the cheap ones suck, either with a lot of white noise, really bad cancellation, drastic change in sound on turning on the anc(I know a little is fine) or a very very bassy sound. If it's not a conflict of interest, please make one! A lot of us want ANCs just for the plane, which doesn't justify spending 250+$.

                                                              I think most of your audience is just elitist cunts, I saw & heard nothing wrong with this video. Too many people are taking video titles & content too seriously. If a word or 2 doesn't perfectly match each other then many throw a tantrum it seems.

Front dampening on the driver like that probably means the treble and midrange are a mess. These 'phones almost certainly lack detail and sound muffled. If I were you, I would give these a hard pass.

Great for the price and whatnot. One of weird things that I've found about this product though, is that the green NC light doesn't turn off when the headphones are turned off.

The Jinny.Tech channel is breaking a story with a teardown explaining some level of fraud on Reds part by relabeling consumer-grade SSDs and proof that they are using manufacture SSD firmware to spoof their own cameras to make it look official. If anyone could do a video on this it's you guys. Here's the video: cLps://
