Mute Switch Doesn't Work

Jonathan H., Newegg
8 January 2011
  • Summary: It's a pain to pay for $9 RMA return shipping on a $29 item when it's not my fault I was sold a defective product. And since this is a replace-only product, I'll just have to hope the next one's cheapo switch works and lasts awhile.
  • Pros: Was hesitant about the weird under-ear way to wear it, but it actually felt pretty good and secure.
