I've had these for a while and I am not impressed with them:
- they are wireless
- the battery will last about 10 hours and it takes about 60 min to fully charge
- quality built
- 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.
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.
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.
- They pair easily with my LG G3 smartphone, and once paired, reconnection is never an issue
- as a headset, the voice quality is excellent. The people I have called have not noticed any issues with mic volume or feedback echo
- for music listening, they are clear, crisp and not tiring. Treble is not too busy, and mids are nice. Bass adequate, if not particularly impressive
- bluetooth bandwidth and codec compression appears to be adequate for my 224kbps VBR mp3 files. I have not tested the headphones with FLAC or APE files, since I don't store them on my smartphone due to the hefty file size
- for podcasts, sound is perfectly clear, and voices are rich
- range is quite good, around 10m as stated, when in line of sight, and about 7-8m even when line of sight is interrupted by thin walls, double glazing, doors etc
- comfortable, with adjustable neckband, well padded ear cups and headband
- well made, overall (even if the buttons are "clicky")
- they fold up in a typical DJ style, so they are easy to carry in a jacket pocket
- charges quickly (although I often use a high speed USB charger, 1.0-1.6A)
- nasty buttons: cheap feel, poor placement, loud clicking sound when pressed
- no 3.5mm jack to allow direct wired connection. FYI, I knew this before I purchased them, but I would be giving 5 stars if they did
- irritating blue LED on the outside of the left hand earpiece flashes every 4 seconds, and it's bright enough to illuminate a dark room. Completely unnecessary, IMO
As you can see, the number of pros outweigh the cons by a significant margin, but the cons are major gripes for me, the biggest drawback being the lack of a wired connection for fallback reasons or for when listening to high quality / lossless audio. If the BT module, USB module or battery fails, they will end up in the bin. Presumably, AKG feels that adding a 3.5mm jack would put them into direct competition with the BT headsets in a higher price bracket. However, I have seen headsets in the same price range with BT, NFC and wired connectivity (August EP650, Avantree Audition), so I think it should have been provided.
At €50/£35 or less, these headphones (provided they turn out to be durable, as I would expect from any AKG cans) represent very good value. I would simply not have considered them at a higher price.
When I saw these AKG ones advertised at about the same price, more or less I thought I may as well try them. They are fandabbydozey, I love them I charged the battery initially and it is still going about ten hours later ! Great and well worth the price of 40.00 I paid.
I do not use them for a mobile phone though so cannot comment on their use with phones.
