Pros: Bought these on sale from newegg at a low price of 29.99$. Completely easy to set up and pair with multiple devices (Ipad and Iphone in my case). Response time between clicking a button and having a song play or a call picked up is pretty quick and works exactly how you would want it to. I wasn't expecting much of the sound so the way it handle bass surprised me quite pleasantly.
It does the job I bought it for, which is walking around my house and doing tasks without dealing with the hassle of wires. Apparently can be connected to a PC with a bluetooth dongle (that does NOT come with the device), but I have no doubt it will work. Additionally, the carry case is pretty well crafted and works well with the fold-away design of the headphones. Given how happy I have been (so far) I will probably never use the case
Cons: As can be expected with low price, the actual plastic looks and feels pretty..well...cheap...because it is. The buttons have the same clicking feel of a bad or old mobile phone and really speaks of the low quality of material used. Because I wasn't expecting the best sound quality, I didn't have a problem with less than perfect sound; the headphones can handle the lows, mids and highs, but overall sound is in my opinion low-mid quality. It is not going to satisfy you if you want to hear that tiny click thats -10db below the overpowering lead synth :P
What bothers me the most about these headphones are the lights that indicate whether the device is on or pairing (etc). While there is a see-through plastic ring for the light to shine through, it is pretty obvious that the whole ring doesn't light up and that the light emits from a single source. Not only does this add to the drawbacks of design but the white plastic allows the light to shine through it which completely negates the point of the see-through ring.
Other Thoughts: 4 stars given because it (1) does the job I want (2) was inexpensive (3) is able to handle lows, mids and high sounds well enough for me to enjoy my music (4) super easy to carry and wear.
I didn't give this product a 5th star despite all the positives for it's price as I believe that it would not have cost much to design the product with slightly thicker plastic. Doing this would prevent lights shining through parts of the device they aren't supposed to and make the product feel like it is better quality.
