This was a bit of an impulse buy as i usually purchase reasonably high end audio gear but i couldn’t be happier on this occasion. I’m a powerlifter and usually have to strategically route normal headphones through my clothing to avoid getting them tangled. Normal earphones tend to fall out of my ears and it’s off putting having to keep my phone in my pocket all the time. The freedom of movement you get with these headphones is the first positive, they are not loose and do not shift position as you move around. Secondly, the audio quality is really good, not high end but good. The clever design ensures that the cups are pressed against your ears so there’s minimal loss of bass. Finally, the battery life is great. I spent a whole day pressure washing the garden followed by a gym session and they were still going strong. Wish i’d bought them years ago.
I bought these as my ipod and ipad didn’t work well with headphones or earphones that used the jack output, so i decided to try out some wireless headphones. I chose these over the various other choices as these were very nearly the cheapest, plus the lack of bad reviews. I am very pleased i chose these as they are great, i’ve used them extensively for a few weeks and have only had to charge once more after preliminary charge. The sound quality is very good for the price and the range is surprisingly far, i can walk out my room and half way down the stairs before they begin to cut off, quite a few metres.Also, i like using them with my apple products as i can just double tap and tell them what music to play. Have yet to try them out on skype or facetime but am sure it will work well when i do, a very good buy, only very rarely cuts out randomly but is still only for milliseconds.

I have been using these for listening to an audio book whilst driving my truck, and i must say they are very good. They are comfortable to wear with nice padding, but not too close fitting so that i can’t hear the engine note or warning tones of my truck. Battery life is good so far (8 hours and still going) and they pack away into a soft drawstring bag. So, the product is good, but the delivery company – home delivery network (also known as yodel) are useless. This is the second set of these headphones i have ordered, because the first set went ‘missing’ and i have still not had any explanation as to why they went missing either from hdnl, yodel or amazon. This isn’t the first time i have had problems with hdnl (yodel) either. I’ve had claims that they have delivered stuff when they hadnt, delivered to wrong address, late deliveries etc. Why does amazon still use these companies?.They are all over google forums, they have been investigated by bbc’s watchdog program and slagged off on several consumer sites.
I bought these for a couple of reasons. First was watching netflix and other shows on my nexus 7 and second was listening to music while out and about on my nokia lumia 800. So far it seems perfect for both. They are relatively large over-ear earpieces so they look a little silly, but you get exactly what you see in the pictures, so that’s finei had a minor problem with the first time i paired with the nexus (it dropped sound regularly and had a long audio delay), but an email to support, quick response, hard reset and re-pair fixed the problem. Audio is not perfectly in synch (by a fraction of a second) but i think that’s a problem of bluetooth headsets rather than this particular one.
These headphones are amazing value for money and since buying them (feeling it worth the risk for the tiny puchase price) i have used them daily for several hours. They paired effortlessly with my phone and i am very pleased with the quality of the listening and the comfort. I was looking at headphones costing a great deal more and will not bother now as these do what i want them to do. They also allow me to listen to relaxation sessions on them whilst lying in bed next to my partner in the early morning (meditations). For the money i don’t think you could possibly do better. I have senheisser wired headphones and reach for these in preference every time as they are so much easier to use without all the faff of undoing the wires to start using them. They arrived fast and well packaged.
MaxTeck Bth220 Bluetooth Stereo Headphone – Supports Wireless Music Streaming and Hands-Free Calling : I bought them to wear at work as i often get tangled in headphone wires – which is very annoying. These connected with no trouble to my iphone 4s, and the sound is great. I can even leave my phone on the counter and clean my house without any problems. I especially love the built in mic. I actually gave these to my husband because wearing them too long hurts my ears. Made me sad because they were so great. (it’s my own ears, not the phones at fault). Wears them to work in and listens to hours and hours of podcasts in them. When he calls using the built-in speaker, it sounds really great. Not a huge amount of background noise or anything – i can hardly tell he’s using it. My only complaint is that they make you look like you’ve got cyborg ears – but that is small beans. All in all a wonderful value and a really great set of headphones.
I’m a guy that loves sports which includes running, power lifting and occasionally mountain biking. The kinivo bth220’s are amazing for sports. They stay on your head, have no cable to get stuck somewhere and are very light. They are really cheap, and have bluetooth so naturally you’d think the quality would be very low but i could not be more surprised.Ofcourse the quality isn’t amazing on its own but for the price and the fact that they’re bluetooth it is super. The build can feel a little flimsy, but i don’t think they will break fast if used properly. Next to the fact that they are amazing for sports they are also great for simply regular use, if you don’t like huge headphones on top of your head and with a cable then really get these. Easy to use and you can also pick up calls with its built in mic when connected to a phonethis has been one of the best, if not the best online buy that i’ve ever done. If they break or whatever at some point i’m going to buy the newer version 240’s a 100%. I am suggesting these to everyone.
So i’ve been using these for a few months now. I intended to use them mostly at the gym but now they double as a hands free system for when i’m driving my car. The headphones are comfortable, even when paired with eye glasses. The battery life is really good. Sound quality is decent and there is enough volume. I don’t have much experience with bt devices but these headphones sometimes have a problem pairing up properly with my devices (android smartphones, ipad). Usually everything goes smoothly but sometimes they pair up with a device and don’t actually work. Signal range is excellent but is blocked easily by your own body. Say you have the phone in your left front pocket and you turn your head to the right. The signal often cuts off and doesn’t return until you turn your head again.
Love this product:pros: it is light to wear, comfortable to the ears, good sound volume, easy to operate and to recharge. The fact that it folds makes it ideal to stick it in your handbag if need be. Very practical when you drive, to switch with one touch, from music to phone. Cons: there is no way to know how much battery life you have left and an indicator of some sort would have been a good idea. Using it with a galaxy notes 8 i have had the odd intermittent signal loss but this is very minor.
