Pros: I have bought and used two previous headphones at similar price points, and the acoustic quality of these devices are nothing to sniff at. But what sets this device apart from the rest is the romovable audio cable which instantly solves two problems.
One, if you wish to walk around the house doing your cooking, or cleaning, you could hypothetically have your music playing.
Two, and the most important advantage for me, is that if the audio cable gets flayed, which would bring down even the most expensive headphones, you could get a replacement audio cable from NewEgg at a negligible price.
I have recently had to send this headphone back for a replacement as the plastic near the cups broke off. While they may be sturdy, it appears one should be gentle while picking up the headphones, and avoid picking them up by the plastic near the cups. The customer service was incidentally top notch and my headphones were replaced with minimum fuss within the same week I sent the headphones!
Cons: Linux support for the Bluetooth connection remains an issue I have yet to resolve. Perhaps with anough time painless bluetooth support will arrive for wireless headset owners who use Linux. Until then, this is the only reason why I am not giving a full 5 stars.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: It worked for the first few months of purchase where I could easily connect to my phone from Ubuntu and send pictures.
Cons: Now, for some odd reason it no longer reliably connects to my Kyocera DuraXT phone, nor to the ZTE Open C I purchased for use and to test out FirefoxOS. I nearly filed a bug report on the Bluetooth part of the ZTE before further testing revealed the adapter just wasn't working correctly. A shame as I bought this primarily because of the Linux compatibility in the title. Maybe it would work better on a Windows machine. Either way, a disappointing purchase.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Works as planned. Plugged in my hard drive after swapping out my optical drive. Hard disk was mountable in Ubuntu. Pretty cheap upgrade that is a no brainer for wringing out extra life from a laptop.
Cons: The shape of the caddy was not a perfect fit for the optical drive used on the ASUS K401J laptop I owned. I could not secure the caddy with the L-shaped metal bracket in the laptop, and worse of all, the faceplate of my previoud optical drive would not snap onto the caddy correctly. As a quick and dirty fix, I broke off the plastic tabs on the faceplate and stuck them onto the caddy with tape.READ FULL REVIEW
