I had a lot of hope when I got these but they simply do not perform up to even minimal expectations.
There are things that I really liked. The minimalist hands free design. The simplicity of connecting and use. The quality of the connection and the quality of the sound. All of these are "As" for me.
My issue and why it went from an "A" to a "D" is that the mic has major performance issues. I can not use these to speak on the phone.
Everyone, and I mean everyone has all said within seconds of being on the phone with me that I sounded muffled, garbled and that they couldn't understand me.
Even when I pulled the mic up to my mouth they still couldn't hear me clearly. Since I spend a lot of time on the phone this is a major issue for me.
Overall Great for people who sit at a desk all day and want something more comfortable. Great for working out, for those who bring their phone to the gym (I do – I keep my workouts on it, listen to music and I work out during lunch/work so need to be abl
Super comfortable. Great for having them on all day at the office. Normally, I’m actually not a huge fan of the rubber/suction fit type ear buds as I like to hear what’s going on outside of the noise in my headphones…but that’s just me. These make it easy though to remove the ear buds and let it tether back into the little receptacle if I want to hear out of one ear or something. I actually wore these to the gym which was great because I never wear headphones at the gym when lifting weights due to the wire getting in my way. This allowed me to lift weights unobstructed. I haven’t run in them yet, but assume that will be a breeze as well.
Seems great on my end. On the other end however, had people say they could hear a lot of background noise…like that they were “picking up everything” or “hearing every car that passed me” – when I was driving. I haven’t heard this complaint when I’m just in the office.
It was really easy to pair and the controls are simple, easy to reach up and adjust volume, etc. The USB charging is nice as I just keep the USB plugged into my laptop and charge every so often.
I bought these headphones for me to listen to music while working around the house. Well my 8yr old granddaughter started using them to listen to music and play games on her tablet and she loved them too. She's dropped them, throws them around and they are holding up great. They last her or I will day without needing a charge. You can't beat these headphones. Had to get another pair.
