First thing I noticed was the packaging; compact and easy to open, no evil clamshell plastic, easy to repackage again if you want to return it. Not a big deal, but it's a nice change. After that, pairing it with my phone and PC was completely painless, and the volume and back/forward buttons worked with both out of the box (not sure why another reviewer had trouble identifying them - if you wear the band behind your neck as intended, they're always in the same place...)
The things that mattered most to me about this product though were Portability, Comfort and Audio Quality.
PORTABILITY: It's wireless, obviously. It also collapses down pretty well as you can see, and it comes with a draw-string dust bag, which helps keep it alive in your bag or pocket. The recharge time (via USB mini cable, included) is pretty short, and the battery life way outstrips my phone, so no problems there. The range quoted is also pretty conservative - no problems within the same room as the transmitter, and mostly even within the same house.
COMFORT: In spite of being collapsible, and very light, it's also pretty sturdy - I put this down to the fact that it's not adjustable. Hasn't been a problem for me, as it's far more comfortable in extended use than in-ear phones or big cans. The lack of a cable means you can have your phone in your pocket and not worry about tugging at it (plus you don't have to hear the cable rustling in your ear every time you move.)
AUDIO: Bluetooth isn't designed for perfect audio fidelity.Read more ›
To get to the point, these headphones do everything that they promise to do and even inspired a non-reviewer like me to take my valuable time to recommend them.
sound quality is good on cd or radio through tunein radio app and i have just sussed out that i can connect them to my Acer laptop too, all in all well happy at the price and the spec of stand by/user time !! Go on you know you want to !!
It is convenient for three reasons:
1) No wires getting in the way is the main benefit.
2) The multi-function button is on the head phone itself and so I don't have to ferret in my pocket to reach my Blackberry to pause the action.
3) Similarly, when there is an incoming phone call you simply push the same button, it pauses the audio file and you're talking.
The four surrounding buttons are impractical to use when wearing the headset because it is impossible to discern which button is which, although I did manage to turn the volume up one time.
To use the other buttons you need to take the headphones off.
Against the noise of a busy street it can be hard to hear an audio interview properly, so I suspect these are better suited to listening to music than interviews. Perhaps things are better when riding on the bus or the train?
Pairing them up with my Blackberry 8520 was straight forward, no problems here.
They feel initially a little tight when first worn but I quickly got use to the feel of them.
Overall, easy to set up and use, but perhaps not so great when there is a lot of background noise.
They work brillantly with my 8520, but they don't work at all with my netbook because I cannot find any drivers anywhere. The bluetooth dongle is fine. Why there is no driver for a netbook is anyone's guess.
2ND UPDATE (Sept 2013)
These also work well with my Blackberry Playbook. Actually they work better as it easier to find you music you want to listen on the Playbook rather than an 8520. Though it's necessary to uncouple the headphones from the phone first.
