    So what OTHER than the requested sponsored "talking points" can you give us!? anything of your own .. or are you just reading off their marketing material!?

      @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.

      @Ken M If you don't like sponsored showcases, then just don't watch them, duh.

      Some people just can‘t get enough. LTT has explained that so often now: Showcases are strictly separated of usual videos and keep the channel‘s reviews neutral from extern influences. They are comparatively rare, and there is almost a video every day!

      And „your time“ is your opinion, where you spend it. It is your mean of action and I ask you to use it by not watching these showcases. If you ask me, producers have it very hard, because people do not even want to watch 5seconds for the funding of a channel. They believe that everything is for free! That is an atrocious view for many creaters, be it Youtubers, Game Developers or Musicians.

      I feel that that is a good compromise, and there even is your ability to skip it altogether. How can people STILL complain about that?

                          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.

                                          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.

                                                        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.

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).

                                                                                • Greg Fletcher

                                                                                  Just say sponsored in the title and its problem solved. Also, I actually don't really mind seeing sponsored material. Just be clear about it in your 'special sponsor videos'. What I really hate is when fanboys get annoyed about normal sponsored content in regular videos. The alternative is that these YT channels would exist without sponsorship. So it's ungrateful for viewers to complain about the source of income for their favourite entertainment.

                                                                                      And to be real, this is shorter than some of the worst offender youtube ads on other channel's videos.

                                                                                          • UrSoMeanBoss

                                                                                            Okay, *I got some productive feedback for LTT* (and I've already watched the wanshow where most of the drama around this video was already covered)

                                                                                            I think the main difference between this and something like the Sony HT-Z9F Showcase is that this feels much more like an infomercial. It makes it very obvious it's an ad, which is a good thing, but there's no incentive to watch as it feels like such a big divergence from the usual content. People who do watch it will feel like their time was wasted, because they got nothing but a sponsored script read. They click expecting one thing, and are presented with another. That incongruity between expectation and reality is what drives a lot of the hate.

                                                                                            Most showcases in the past have been entertaining at the very least, and informative at best -- beyond mere product talking points, the videos did things like addressing a new technology, and/or social "fun"/interactions with LTT employees, and/or it's just introducing a really unique and interesting product, etc. This video pretty much fails that content-quality test entirely. This fact is only compounded by the initial title error, among the other known issues.

                                                                                            And yes, I said content. Whether you like it or not, your showcases have become "content" in and of themselves to your viewers, even though they are uploaded outside of the usual content schedule. Viewer reactions are informed by this expectation of quality content. How do you make a talking-point ad for headphones interesting and entertaining to watch? No idea. So unless you know, you should probably consider how the showcase will stand up as independent content when accepting such sponsors.
