Amazon reviews are shitty, (5-stars are only 51%), but they’re also $99 retail. The hardest part of assessing value is balancing bad reviews with a price differential; I don’t really have a good heuristic for that yet.
@dvermilion only 40 reviews though. 1 one star review. And if you read them, most of the bad say they aren’t comfortable while the 5 stars say they are very comfortable. Some say sound is bad some say it’s good. All paid minimum 50 bucks for it. There will always be bad reviews and good. One review compared these to a 300 dollars pair of Bose headphones. I ordered it and think it’s worth the risk for 24 bucks
@mehvid1@zach_kay392 I took a gamble on the Wicked Audio Hum 900 headphones I’m wearing right now and bought 2 pair for I think $12 apiece? They’re the best BT headphones I’ve ever owned. I tend to be a depressive realist most of the time–I just can’t shake the feeling that paying 2x the money I paid for these is going to net me ½ the quality. But whatever, the house always wins. ʅ(́◡◝)ʃ
P.S. I was going to post a picture of Queen Elizabeth with a “yolo” caption but google images gave me this instead:
