Re: QC35 and QC30 for communications
Yeah I'm really heartbroken. I adore my QC30 for media playback and find them the most comfortable earbuds ever, but they really are useless for phone calls. I can't take them back as I've had them a while, and also wouldn't want to part with them for music.
It's so frustrating. I'm thinking about picking up a Plantronics Voyager Edge to use just for phone calls, as they seem to get good reviews for calls and look to be almost as comfy given they way they fit. But I don't really want to spend the $100+ on one and I don't really want the hassle of carrying both and switching back and forth as needed.
I guess I could try a dedicated bluetooth microphone as someone posted on one of the threads [Edit: it was @jrhodes111, here.] But that option isn't cheap either and not much more convenient, if any. Or I could pick up a bluetooth adapter like a BlueAnt Ribbon and use them with one of a few different earphones I have at home collecting dust. I love the comfort of my old Bose IE2 and would love to use them with a bluetooth adapter but they leak so much noise (that the QC30 otherwise kills through the ANC) that it would make them tough to use. Any other in-ears I have I stopped using due to ear canal fatigue, as they all fit IN your ear, unlike the Bose options. Feel like I'm between a rock and a hard place!
