Geluid links is weggevallen na gebruik kabel

Zolang ik de PX7 met bluetooth gebruikte, was ik enorm tevreden. Mooi geluid en een goed design. Helaas is bij mij na gebruik van de usb-c kabel het geluid links verdwenen en ondanks vele malen resetten en de batterij leeg laten lopen nooit meer teruggekomen. Aangezien de garantietermijn van 2 jaar verstreken was, mocht ik van de B&W klantendienst een nieuwe kopen met korting; reparatie of vervanging onder coulance zat er niet in. Op internet vind je meer van deze klachten, dus het lijkt op een fabricage- of constructiefout. Ik vind het niet passend voor een merk als B&W om een koptelefoon met een levensduur van 2,5 jaar op de markt te brengen.

Pros

  • Mooi geluid, als hij het doet
  • Mooi design

Cons

  • Na gebruik usb-c kabel geen geluid meer links

La calidad de sonido y la inmersión en la música es simplemente indescriptiblemente buena, en el pasado he tenido varias marcas de audifonos de bastante renombre, pero ningunos audifonos se comparan a la calidad de sonido y lo divertido que eschar musicos con ellos.

Pros

  • Calidad de sonido
  • Materiales premium
  • Calidad de construcción
  • Portatil
  • Generalmente comodos
  • De una marca con mucho renombre entre los audiofilos
  • Cuenta con muchos codecs para segurarte la mejor calidad de sonido sin importar el origen desde donde se transmita
  • Buen diseño futurista
  • EN GENERAL MUY RECOMENDABLE

Cons

  • El único punto medio negativo y es algo personal es que al momento de activar la opción ANC aveces me causa dolor de cabeza (eso pasa con todos los audifonos ANC), es un síntoma común y les recomiendo que antes de comprar audífonos ANC, probartelos por mas de 10 min.
