ZAGGsmartbuds are great for smartphones, with earbuds to hear sounds and a noise cancellation mic for phone calls. BUT don’t use them on a Skype video call or recording audio on a laptop – in my case, a MacBook Pro laptop. Not sure what might result on a Windows PC. It creates an audible buzz on the recording, and probably on the phone call made through Skype or VoIP webinar or Ustream or maybe other computer-based audio situations. Of
course the buzz was unbeknownst to me.
“The ZAGGsmartbuds are not designed to be used as a digital recording device for laptops. The buds are meant to provide an outlet for communication and media control on your SmartPhone. I apologize for any confusion, but this has not been confirmed as an issue with the ZAGGsmartbuds.”
The customer service did offer a product replacement, minus shipping. That’s okay, no thanks. But I sure wish I knew the limitations of what I was buying upfront.
