  • works well, but sounds bad

    Pros:

    Bluetooth pairing works seamlessly with my phone and computer.

    Cons:

    Sound quality is really not great. I've had $20 Jabra bluetooth headphones that sounded a lot better than this.
    I'd hate to see a frequency-response plot of these 'phones. The high frequencies roll-off quite dramatically making all music sound muted, dull and washed-out.
    Also, it seems there's some funny business going on in the compression system. No matter how I adjust the relative volumes, everything sounds like it's been over-compressed. Again, other bluetooth phones don't sound like this so it's not some inherent problem with my source.
    There are only two buttons: play/skip-back and answer/skip-forward. To skip then, you have to hold the button down for a while. This makes lots of songs painful.

    OtherThoughts:

    I wish I could find a decent pair of headphones on DE but the other options are even worse.
    I had hoped that these 'phones would be functionally useful for casual listening at work but I honestly can't stand how they're colouring my music. I will have to retire them in favour of something a little more natural.

    Bottomline:

    For the price, it's probably still a good deal but if you're picky about audio quality, don't bother with these.
