5 out of 5 eggsFantastic

Pros: The sound qualit is superb for such a cheap device. And I can walk more than 40 feet away before it begins to go out of range in my house through walls. I leave the phone in the car and go into 7-11 and still hear the music just fine. This is my second device. Pads are just the right size too keep my ears warm and keep out most room noise. For the price you can't go wrong.

Cons: The ear pad pinches occaisionly and the buttons are a bit too sensitive.

2 out of 5 eggsUncomfortable neck band

Pros: Low cost
Sound is clean, if no interference

Cons: Neckband too thick
Ear cups don't twist enough to conform to head and ear shapes
Sometimes picks up interference unexpectedly

Other Thoughts: If you like to let the neckband go behind the top of your ears, it is too thick, and the ear piece doesn't twist enough to be more comfortable fit, and causes moderate level of discomfort after a short while.
I then let both the band and ear cup on the same side of the ears, the band doesn't quite clip on tight enough, while the cups don't twist enough to provide a secure fit, and doesn't cover the ear evenly and may cause discomfort after a while, although better than before.
The sound is good enough for casual use, and set up is standard for most BT devices.
Not recommended for use while viewing videos, because the audio will have noticeable delays.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat value

Pros: I bought this to use only with the computer.

Provides decent sound and bass for music, and movies.

Collapsible making them very portable in any small bag or pocket.

I wear glasses and these are not annoying or very obstructive.

Very cheap price, a steal at under $10

Cons: Not a Micro USB plug, it uses a Mini-B plug.

Other Thoughts: These are being used on Windows 7 with bluetooth adapter
With the AZIO I have to keep disabling the bluetooth radio in the toshiba software it comes with before turning on the headphones otherwise sound won't transfer to them.

1 out of 5 eggsDoes not pair with PC

Pros: It's cheap and it does pair with phones.

Cons: It has something like a reverb when talking on the phone, but that I can live with. What I can not live with is the fact that this device is completely invisible to PCs, so if you wanted to use it as a gaming headset, then you are out of luck.

Other Thoughts: Seriously how could the manufacturer mess this up so badly? I called them and wrote to them a number of times, but they told me that they do not have any PC drivers for the device. Makes you wonder how they manufactured it in the first place. Just imagine what other things the manufacturer "forgot".

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: 1. CHEAP. 2. Easy to Set up 3. Story i got these for 12 bucks for cyber week in November. So far I have used them while out running the Snow Blower. turn on blutooth on the phone, stick it in my coat, turn on the headphones, and plow. Plenty loud enough to hear over all the noise the snowblower makes. I have a pretty old phone, LG Optimus V running android 2.2.1. I am always hesitant buying new gear to work with it being so old but these head phones paired up with it in about 2 seconds. I have no idea what Blutooth version it has but its old.

Cons: the fit is kind of weird. this is my first around the back of the head phones. I have always worn the on top of the head head phones. But they stay on fine for my application. I'm guessing if you plan on running from the police in them (or jogging in general) they are going to fall right off. Thats just me, if you are used to wearing this style then it won't be an issue for you.

Other Thoughts: at 12 bucks I should have bought or 4 pair to use if these ever die out. no issues yet though!!!

1 out of 5 eggsAwful headphones

Pros: Bluetooth

Cons: Uncomfortable, terrible sound, no battery level indicator

Other Thoughts: Have owned these for maybe 15 months. They are poor headphones.

- Very uncomfortable after just a few minutes of wearing. A major problem is the large round pipes that go between your ears and head. This makes these headphones very uncomfortable with my close set ears. These large pipes also cause problems when wearing glasses. Additionally, the back pipe that goes around your neck is not adjustable, so the phones tend to slip down my neck, leading to more ear comfort issues.

- The sound quality is poor. When I switch to a wired pair of cheap Panasonic headphones, the sound is at least twice as good.

- There is an annoying (for others) pulsing blue light emitted from the right side every 10 seconds or so when the headphones are in use.

- Finally, there is no low power indicator until you suddenly receive 3 short beeps in your ear. Which is then repeated every 60 seconds until you charge the headphones! Most annoying.

- I would not recommend these to anyone, even if they were free.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat sounding bluetooth headphones

Pros: These headphones sound amazingly good for the price. The pairing process was super easy with an iPhone. They immediately reconnect when turned on.

So far, the battery life has been very good - I've had them on for an entire workday on a single charge.

Cons: Mini USB cable instead of micro. The cable in the package didn't work at all, but I had plenty of old cables at home since no one uses using mini USB anymore :)

Other Thoughts: I did notice the buttons did rattle just a little bit when I wore them on a run, but not bad at all. It was nice not having a cord to worry about while exercising.
