Time to time we have something happen with a review or we see a result that we know will damage our relationship with a company. At that time we have 2 choices delete the review and save the relationship or keep the consumers needs top of the list and post the review even though it may damage our relationship with the company.
We decided the consumer needs to know the truth even if it equals our final Bitfenix review, besides when we buy the hardware out of pocket ourselves.
During this review we had 2 separate units break on us where the headband connects to hard plastic. During our testing we found the bands were more than strong enough for day to day use but when it comes to massive temperature changes in Calgary Alberta during the winter -20c to 20c in the course of a few hours (No Leonardo the worlds not ending that's just how Alberta is)the band just did not hold up.
They also had zero give when trying to adjust to different head sizes.
On the good side the mic and sound quality is truly topnotch. The fact the mic is detachable makes for a far more versatile travel headphone.
