Lightweight, sound great,
This review is from: August EP650 - Bluetooth Headphones with 3.5mm Audio In - Wireless or Wired Stereo Headset with NFC Tap to Connect - Rechargeable Battery / Built In Battery / USB Audio In - Black (Electronics)
These are excellent headphones kindly provided to me by the manufacturer to review. I've never tried Bluetooth headphones before but they give you a lot more freedom than when getting tangled up with wires.
Setup was really simple, the instructions tell you everything you need to know. Once paired your device (in my case a mobile phone, but could easily be a tablet, laptop or PC) can automatically reconnect without needing to pair.
The design is very lightweight considering it contains a battery. They are very comfortable and they don't move around much at all. They can fold down for storage/transportation and the red colour looks fantastic.
Sound quality is excellent with music having a nice depth to it with them offering a good bass as well, no tinniness from these cans!
Controls are simple, just 5 buttons on the right hand ear. You can play/pause, adjust the volume, and skip back and forwards. The play/pause button also acts as a call answer button.
If you plan on using these as wired headphones you can do so with the included 3.5mm to 3.5mm wire. They're charged via USB.
Bluetooth range is also excellent, far better than I expected. As a test I left my mobile downstairs and the music was still playing upstairs, so you'll have no issue if you pop you phone in a bag away from the headphones.
Great set of headphones for the price, and if you've never had Bluetooth headphones before I think you'll love the wires free experience.

No drawbacks at all? I ask because you've stated they were provided to you free of charge so would expect a balanced, objective review including faults or annoyances.

Yes, the controls could do with something on them to make them easier to find when on your head, but that was the only thing I didn't like about the design of these, I think I said that in the video but for some reason didn't mention in the written review. I'd also ignore the phone call function, I've not tried a set of headphones like this yet that is good at phone calls. The key for me is that as headphones these are brilliant and offer excellent sound quality and comfort for a fantastic price.

The video review doesn't show any faults, and it'd be unfair of him to add gripes about silly points of comparison or things that are obviously inherent to what they are. You do have to remember to charge them to see any benefit beyond a normal pair of headphones, although being able to use them either when they are out of charge or with non-bluetooth devices is a good inclusion, especially for those of us with long commutes. They aren't an audiophiles headphone; ie while the sound quality is generally good if you are coming from either a higher end wired set or any brand with a specific 'sound' (Beats especially) then the sound won't be what you are used to and may well sound wrong. They are bluetooth which means you may experience problems with skips or jerks in what you are listening to especially when the battery is low or the device transmitting is in a bag. They aren't made to be a true phone headset and the mic isn't good. If you make a lot of calls while on your travels I would look elsewhere. They may not comfortably fit your head, just because they can't fit everyone perfect. If you aren't used to overear cans then these may feels uncomfortable to you. They do leak a little bit of a sound. Not a lot. But a bit. If you are into very loud pounding beats then you will probably get some funny looks, but music at normal volumes won't be a problem.
Essentially all the bad points about these cans should be obvious just by looking at what they are, however they do sound good, the battery lasts a long time and you can plug in when it runs out, and they are pretty comfy to wear.

The guy did point out a design failing.

They have an Aux in so you could plug them into a TVs headphone out socket.
