Recently, BKAV CEO Nguyen Tu Quang sparked a big controversy in the Vietnamese technology world when publicly criticizing some domestic technology reviewers. The incident started earlier this week, when BKAV opened the sale of AirB and AirB Pro headphones and some reviewers posted reviews on media channels. Most of these reviews say that the AirB has not achieved what BKAV advertises, especially in terms of sound quality and level of perfection.
BKAV CEO said that these reviewers are “not qualified”, evaluate products “according to what the manufacturer gives them” and “receive a lot of money, often tend to say well”. Quang also announced that his company will stop cooperating with reviewers from this year.
Although criticizing domestic reviewers, however, not everyone knows that BKAV itself is operating a technology review website in Vietnam with the address VNReview.vn. The footer of VNReview clearly states that this website is under the management of Bkav Joint Stock Company, headquartered at Building HH1 Yen Hoa Urban Area, Cau Giay District, Hanoi; is also the “headquarters” of this company. On Bphone phones, VNReview is also one of the websites stored by BKAV in the Bookmarks section of the browser.
Not long ago, VNReview posted a review of the AirB Pro headset produced by the parent company BKAV. Currently, besides BKAV, there are few other manufacturers in the world that operate a product review website, let alone evaluate their own products.
Here, we would like to quote some of the main points from the AirB Pro review entitled “Evaluation of true wireless AirB Pro headphones: Impressive “made in Vietnam” and a long road ahead” by the author “Audio expert” from VnReview. Let’s see, what happens when BKAV evaluates its own products?
