Bought these about 18months ago but only writing the review now. These are good headphones but a little steep on the price tag IMHO.
Lightweight, compact and good sound quality for a bluetooth headset. Battery life has been good but eventually gave up on me last week
after 18months of continuous daily use. I've replaced the lithium polymer battery and they are now working perfectly again. Downsides are
the headset controls can be awkward to use especially on the move and the mike isn't great when taking calls but it does the job adequately.
I have to say tho that after switching to cable free bluetooth I couldn't go back.. You might want to check out Creative WP-350 which score well
in reviews and are considerably cheaper.

if you are going to buy these because of their brand (AKG is know for their hi quality audio devices) than please stop there and read a couple more reviews before you make up your mind.
I've had these for a while and I am not impressed with them:
pros:
- they are wireless
- the battery will last about 10 hours and it takes about 60 min to fully charge
- quality built

cons:
- ergonomically speaking, the controls are awful; the buttons on the earpiece are really annoying and hard to get used to
- they are on ear, not over ear; this means that they get unconformable if you have them on more than a couple of hours at a time
- the sound is average at best; I bought these because they are AKG and I was expecting very good sound quality; the base is not deep at all and the mids are lacking vibrance.
- they suffer from data loss if you are further than 2 meters from the transmitter; that kind of sucks because the whole point of having bluetooth headphones is that you have freedom of movement.
- and last but not least, very pricey; for this much money you can get much better headphones

if you can get a good deal on them than they are worth it (like 50 ponds tops) because you would be getting a well build item but with an average sound quality.

The only reason for rating these headphones 4 and not 5 stars is because the fit is not always that good. Yes they are fully adjustable but when moving around a lot i.e. in the garden, then they do have a tendency to move a lot as well, therefore really good if just sitting. Otherwise sound, tone and comfort are all excellent, and for the price I paid, £39.99 instead of £149.99 !!!, then I can't grumble.
Not yet tried the microphone but I did not get them for this so this will probably be a good thing to have when I eventually use it. The battery life seems good but the 'on-board' buttons are a little fiddly.
Overall very satisfied with these headphones.

I bought these Bluetooth headphones 10 months ago , and for some reason I've never used them . I tried them out today , and lo and behold , they worked fine . I tried them first with an iPhone , then an iPad , then lastly with a new iMac, and they were spot on . It's a bonus for me that they work well with the iMac , It means I can watch movies etc without disturbing anyone , people in the next room , neighbours etc . To sum up , they sound good , they're comfortable , affordable , it means that , what they say on the tin is correct . I'm very pleased with them .

really good headset, good, clear sound quality, easy to pair with iPhone 6 plus and iPad 4 (haven't tried them with anything else but can't believe that there would be problems), nice and sturdy and easy to charge. In use the controls, on/off volume and answer/hang up are all on the left ear piece as is the charging port. What more could one want....well...., very comfortable on the ears though virtually impossible to wear a 'beanie' or other ear covering hat in the cold need a 'hoody' for that.

Superb quality but I haven't used them much due to battery not lasting all night. This is probably only a nuisance to me, as I often have sleepless nights, so I am not complaining. High end for a low price. I own Bose comfort on ear headphones for my iPad , they are best as still use the traditional cable. Range of music, from high treble to deep bass, all play well on the k830 though. Get if you can't justify sennhauser or beats.

Bought a set if these just to link with my iMac. Do the job pretty well but get the sense you're paying for the Bluetooth technology rather than the quality. It's not that the quality is bad its just not as good as the price you pay would suggest.

Got this as a lightning deal and was going to give to daughter but I like it so much I have decided to keep it. Really comfortable and will probably use these instead of ear plugs when commuting which are forever tangling.
