Horrible product

I am wondering how this product is getting such a good rating. ANC, bass, treble, connectivity, everything sucks except the case. Even the company is unethical, which has mentioned that a user can return the product on the product card. However, this is not the case; the Indian seller refused to return. Maybe this discrimination is against Indian customers. Even the headphones, 4-5 cheaper than this, work better. The worst thing is that they have a 30 days refund policy only on paper. However, their support manager Shane is fooled and refuses a refund. A highly unprofessional and unethical company. How can people compare this piece of shit with Sony WF-1000XM4 and XM3? CONS: * Poor ANC makes background noise bass-rich and more annoying. I think the company doesn’t know what noise cancellation is. * Frequent sound disconnections * Impossible to connect with the app * Not possible to connect two devices * Sound settings only work on mobile devices. When connected to a laptop and other devices the bass is hammering heavy and torturing * Impossible to wear for more than 5 mins PROS: * The hard case
