Quality issues

Max W., Newegg
16 July 2015
  • Summary: Arctic may have been the first company to take these OEM headphones and plaster their name on it... or they may be the OEM for it. Either way, it has been sad to see the slide in quality as they had won me over with these awesome headphones when I initially bought them that offered play time twice...
  • Pros: Long battery life. Took about 3+ hours of wearing to become uncomfortable
  • Cons: I have owned 3 pairs of these over the past 3-4 years. The quality control has steadily gone down. - The first one still works but will not play music for more than 40 minutes. - The second one died about a year ago and had issues with turning on before it died. - The third one died after about 6...

  • Summary: They are well made for any price. But when you can get them on sale, that makes them even a sweeter deal. Battery stays charged for hours and recharges easily like a cellphone. I don't use it for my cellphone, nor have I used the mic feature.
  • Pros: Price - Price- Price on sale price is great. Bought a second one for a Christmas present. They sound great to me. They stay on my head even with glasses. No, I don't run or exercise with them on, so I don't know if they would stay on under those conditions. But I DO use them while vaccuming and d...

Excellent for home use

Christina I., Newegg
14 June 2015
  • Summary: I use these headphones in my house, mostly when I'm cleaning & washing dishes, or don't want to disturb others when I'm watching movies & videos on my iPad. I tried them with Mumble (VOIP chat program) and the mic quality was not very good.
  • Pros: These are exceptionally comfortable and have a long battery life even after almost a year of use. I think the audio quality and volume is good considering what these are. I hear my online classes, movies, TV, etc. just fine on them, even when I'm hand-washing dishes or the fan is on full blast.
  • Cons: These headphones have a "1-room range" -- not that I really need to watch my iPad from more than a room away. If you're out jogging and need to hear things on your phone, or you're running on your treadmill, you're going to be fine. When I'm cleaning I don't always want to pick up my iPad just to...

Great Phones

David B., Newegg
14 June 2015
  • Summary: Have used these with a range of 400' from my phone (with one wooden wall between the phone and headset. I own 2 sets, one I use with my phone, the other with my iPod, just because they were so inexpensive I could.
  • Pros: Cost, range, clarity, trouble free
  • Cons: If working in warm area, these will make you a little warmer, due to the close fit of the ear muffs. Otherwise, I have found no other cons.

Listening to BBC World Service Right now!

Tim S., Newegg
21 May 2015
  • Summary: I have a set which has fairly large drivers -- it sounds much better than these, however since they seem to stay connected well to my iPhone 4, and have fairly 'bright, clear' sound -- not remarkable, but decent -- I wish they did physically fit better or could be adjusted to fit my haid.
  • Pros: These connected almost immediately with no issue. They don't crackle or drop-out (so far,) which are frequent problems with other BT headphones. Have not tried using for a phone call yet, but will update if they are awful.
  • Cons: Starts losing connection (cutting in and out) at about 15' through one wall in my house. That is normal performance for other BT phiones; some are a little better, some are much worse. I have a normal sized head, but these are just a little too small to stay on. They are a bit uncomfortable too a...
