There are times when we crave to get away from the everyday rat race and indulge ourselves in the music of a favorite artist. This should not interfere with our daily duties, of course.

I had the tinny sound problem even with top end Shure headphones. Couldnt hear dialogue properly / mono/ tinnny. Then I noticed that the headphone socket stops the jack from going in all the way. I added a short extension lead with a different plug and the sound is very good. I cant tell the difference really between wired and bluetooth. I can only assume that was your problem too. Hope it helps.

When I get a call it rings on the headset, but does it ring on the phone, too??

I still this headset occasionally. One feature it has that when you answer or make a call, you can hear your own voice in the earphones as picked up by the microphone, very useful if you're using noise-isolating earbuds and you can't hear your own voice and therefore may be shouting during the call.
