  1. I am looking for a pair of over ear Bluetooth headphones $150 max.
    Comfort is a big on for me what do you recommend?

  2. Were you ever able to try out the zik again. The original zik can now be found under 100, and two more iterations came out since, aptly named 2.0 and 3.0.

    Im considering getting the originals since I spent about 2hours of each day on a train and could use a nice pair of anc headphones, but not sure if the zik are worth it. Ur options are always spot on do was hoping u gave them another chance recently

  3. Odd, because I found them to have too much treble!

    I’m still looking for the perfect KSC75 replacement and I haven’t found one.

  4. I have this unit and the sound is globally warm, pretty good bass but I think they lack presence in treble. They’re extremely comfy and easy to listen to.
    I got them for 15 euros last year and for this price it’s a great headphone in terms of audio quality and construction.
    I compare them to other more expensive headphones : the only issue for me was the resolution in treble : here you can hear the difference betwenn these models and more pricier ones. But for outdoor use instead of critical listening, they’re just perfect for me.
