Good Quality, Durable and with Simplistic Design.
on 7 January 2015
The Headphones were packaged well and secure. From getting the headphones from out of the box, they were very easy to set up with both NFC (Near-Field Communication) compatible devices and bluetooth compatible devices. Using the NFC function is the easiest way to use the product. Setting any device up for the first time is as simple as placing the back of the phone onto the left ear cup and every time you turn off the device and back on the headphones will automatically connect to the headphones (as long as you have your bluetooth settings constantly active on your phone). To pair via bluetooth you only need to hold the power button for around 8 seconds and then the headphones enter pairing mode. It comes up on your phones as the model number and you simply select the device and it instantly connects.
The sound quality of the headphones are pretty good. A fair amount of bass but the vocals seem a little dim when listening to genres like rock or pop. There has been no connection issues whilst using the headphones, such as quality drops or disconnection.
The ear-cups sit on top of your ears (not around) and I have worn them for around 4-5 hours at length and had no real discomfort.
I have used the headphones in the rain, both heavy and light and there has so far been no issues. As the headphones are designed with a very minimalistic look, there are no holes or entrances for the water to enter the electronics of the headphones.
The band is made of plastic. It is decently flexible and not very tough but will has done the job so far. If you have a tiny head or a very large head, the headphones will most likely fit all.
Finally, I would recommend these headphones for light music users who want to have bluetooth or wireless capabilities. If you want to use headphones for walking the dog or biking to work, these headphones will survive rain, stay firm on your head and play good quality music. I would not recommend these headphones for enthusiast use.
