      It truly is a strange day when you watch a youtuber and then find their comment on another completely unrelated youtuber's video, send bob my regards. xD

      @Linus Tech Tips that's an excuse because Jimmy from Jimsreviewroom still does unbiased reviews even when he gets sent products or his video is sponsored.

    Overall the headphone is decent but if you leave the mic switch on it will drain the battery.

    I liked the headphones, the video was shit though..I can read too. Do they sound good? big mystery man...If saying they sound good is a conflict of interest then you are saying they sound like shit... snake oil sales pricks!

    I'm searching for headphones , stumbled upon these and found linus had a vid about them. All those dislikes make me insecure wether i should buyem or nay

  • Master Gamer

    What was the audio recording device for this video? Sounds so sharp its static like. I can hear the piercing sound at the high end and it kind of hurts my head. First time I have ever felt the need to comment on a video at all. I am using a razer kraken v2 chroma usb for this with just a base calibration. Anyway.....peace. \V/ PLus the "sssss" noises Linus makes are the worst culprit.

  • Nilaksh Malpotra

    I think a big reason behind this outrage is that this is a genuine video people wanted from you- the best cheap anc to buy. A lot of the cheap ones suck, either with a lot of white noise, really bad cancellation, drastic change in sound on turning on the anc(I know a little is fine) or a very very bassy sound. If it's not a conflict of interest, please make one! A lot of us want ANCs just for the plane, which doesn't justify spending 250+$.

    I think most of your audience is just elitist cunts, I saw & heard nothing wrong with this video. Too many people are taking video titles & content too seriously. If a word or 2 doesn't perfectly match each other then many throw a tantrum it seems.

    I stopped watching this video after 2 minutes.
    Reading up a script is okay in TechLinked, because it has the core values of LTT, but this showcase is not even near them.
    Good way to make revenue, bad for me if I'm looking for an LTT opinion about this product.

    If they put a thick piece of squishy foam in front of the driver that means the drivers are CRAAAAP. Front dampening on the driver like that probably means the treble and midrange are a mess. These 'phones almost certainly lack detail and sound muffled. If I were you, I would give these a hard pass.

      Nilaksh Malpotra 2 months ago +2

      Agreed for regular headphones, but would that translate to ANCs as well? Maybe they put a thicker pad to reduce noise and then customised the driver accordingly?

    So I ended up getting these during the Amazon Prime mayhem through a lightning deal. 71 CDN, and I feel like that live up to the hype in the few hours that I've used them for so far. Great for the price and whatnot. One of weird things that I've found about this product though, is that the green NC light doesn't turn off when the headphones are turned off.

    LTT you need to take a look at what's inside your Red Mini Mags and the "custom firmware". The Jinny.Tech channel is breaking a story with a teardown explaining some level of fraud on Reds part by relabeling consumer-grade SSDs and proof that they are using manufacture SSD firmware to spoof their own cameras to make it look official. If anyone could do a video on this it's you guys. Here's the video: cLps://

    I literally had never heard of these headphones before, but after watching this video I watched and read some reviews and I bought these pair of headphones the same evening. I get that some people think this video is useless, but there are also people who find it useful, like me. I just found my new pair of great headphones.

    I have 2 pairs of TT ANC headphones(BH22 and BH040) and both work very well and very comfortable. I didn't time the battery life but it is surprisingly long. The ANC is pretty good and noticeably effective. I bought these in lieu of Bose pricey models and I am happy with the choice. My wife has the Bose headphones and I think these are comparable and a good buy. She has to replace batteries while the TT are USB rechargeable(which I prefer).
