Cons: the battery and signal cable that runs through the bands will break after less then a year.
Lightweight and portable, good battery life, very convenient wireless headphones. Bluetooth sounds ok but nothing outstanding, hooked up with the included cable sounds horrendous however.
Great sound quality and supper comfortable. To be honest i don’t know what you people do to these headphones as i’ve had mine for a year now and i’ve used them every day and even taken them on holiday and they’ve never broken, they still look like new.

Comments from buyers
Great and nice, but bluetooth not so much
decent wireless portable headphones
Very good sound quality either wired or through bluetooth. Good bass, treble and mids though the sound does tend to lean on the warmer side of the spectrum (slightly pronounced bass). Usually get about 8 hours of use per charge. Extremely portable due to folding design. Good quality materials considering the price. Provides decent seal from outside noise due to ample ear cushions. Earphone adjustment a little bit too loose for my liking. Clamping force a little tight at first but will eventually loosen. Final thoughts: i am a music enthusiast and musician who appreciates good quality audio. I usually use higher end equipment at home (sennheiser hd600 and akg q701 through epiphany acoustics ehp-o2 headphone amplifier). While this pair of headphones obviously cannot match the sound quality of the equipment i have mentioned, they provide decent sound while i am out and about and the freedom of not having wires tethered to my music player is a very liberating experience. The cheaper price also means i do not have to worry too much about the unit getting damaged or being misplaced.
I love the design and the build quality, however the bluetooth seems to be an old chip as it keeps dropping and forgetting some devices (i’m aware it remembers only 2). It also connects quite slowly. We use it with an ipad for skype and some android phones so i can confirm it is cross platform compatible.
Great item, definitely worth the money (for the cheap price).
Great quality & fantastic sound, good wireless range. I had absolutely no trouble connecting them with my phone (htc one), they actually connect faster than my previous pair. The battery holds for as long as promised. Controls are intuitive and easy to use, i like the way they fold snugily into something you can put into a bag without much hassle – lightweight & compact, perfect for commuting. I must also say, they are a very good-looking pair – stylish in an understated way.
