A lot better than expected for the Price.

Daniel C., Newegg
2 weeks ago
  • Summary: I'll probably buy another pair of these in the future, just in case. People are surprised when they ask about it and I tell them how much it was. Get one!
  • Pros: Extremely reliable, Excellent on power (I neglected to charge it after 2 days of listening to music on and off via my phone, STILL worked!), A cinch to set up on a phone or other mobile device and worked great at the gym!
  • Cons: Connection is prone to being interrupted at times depending on what is in the way, such as the thick layer of clothing in your winter jacket, but that can be fixed by simply adjusting your position. The Mic isn't the best for phone calls but far from the worst, I'd only switch it off for REALLY important calls.

Jeremiah R., Newegg

  • Summary: I'll recomend for any one that wants a good quality cheap set
  • Pros: Great cheap blue tooth head set. I bent mine mant times to get it to fit and it took it like a champ and still folded like a charm. Sound it great and comfertable as heck.
  • Cons: Range is weak. 10-12 feet indoors tops. Stepped out for a smoke after 10 feet it died connection. But for the price it'sgreat

I judge a company by how they handle problems

Kenneth S., Newegg
2 weeks ago
  • Summary: I know we should not have to be shocked when a company stands behind a relatively inexpensive product, but customer service in general has declined to this point. Arctic, however, bucks the trend and stands by its/this product. All-star service.
  • Pros: Good quality. Outstanding customer support. They are light, average power and good -- thought not great -- sound. But, hey, what do you want at this price? The key thing, though, is that I had a problem with one and I was beyond Newegg 30-day limit. I emailed the company, they responded and asked for a receipt which I promptly sent. They replaced the unit via expedited mail, no muss, no fuss, not bother, no RMA. I am so delighted that I bought another to use at the of...
  • Cons: I had a con, but they turned it into a "pro." Sign of a good company.

Worst Newegg product I have ever bought

Brian M., Newegg
2 weeks ago
  • Summary: I'd give this a 0 if it let me
  • Pros: Not one
  • Cons: Brand new out of the box and can't get these to pair with any device I own. This is the absolute worst product I have ever purchased from NewEgg.

Good for the price, a few issues

John M., Newegg
3 weeks ago
  • Summary: 4 eggs because they are nice little headphones for the price. I wish i could have paid a little more for slightly better sound and bluetooth.
  • Pros: Cheap, Easy to use, Comfortable to wear
  • Cons: They are small and i have a big head. Signal is easily blocked. If i put my hand by my ear while listening to music it cuts out. Sync issues. If you want to sync it to different devices you will have trouble if both devices are on. Sound is ok, no bass.

Cheap Headphones

Mark B., Newegg
3 weeks ago
  • Summary: If RMA price shipment charge is anywhere near $10 than this isn't worth the time or effort.
  • Pros: Price, Price, and comfortable
  • Cons: Purchased Two units, replacements for two earlier units lost a few month ago at higher prices. Problem one item would not work thru Android phones. Received RMA for $14 item and if I use UPS (recommended by New Egg) charge for .28lbs of product will be $10.39 . Next Stop USPS to see if it is even worth it.

headphone is noisy

Xiaoxi C., Newegg
3 weeks ago
  • Pros: works with Iphone and IPad, also with my TV.
  • Cons: Background noise. When the phone/tv is silent there is significant background noise. It does not work with my Lenovo laptop either. I have not tried it with other windows machines.

Great Gym Headphones

Brandon K., Newegg
4 weeks ago
  • Summary: Overall a great product for the money and I would definitely recommend them if you are sick of wired ones getting ripped out of your ears constantly!
  • Pros: These headphones are perfect for using at the gym; I was so sick and tired of the corded ones getting snagged on everything and ripping out of my ear while I was trying to work out. These fit comfortably on the ears and rest on the back of your neck; They sound great and you can even answer your text messages/phone calls without even having to touch your phone (if you have a compatible phone.) The pads on them are great, they feel like they were meant to be sweated on...
  • Cons: Not many cons, If I had to think of some it would be that the headphones themselves are kind of big and blocky which can cause you to hit them on things if your head doesn't have a ton of room for the exercise. The headphones resting on the neck only gives me a slight problem on the bench press since the back of it sometimes hits the bench, but I just angle my head slightly to eliminate this.

Older tech, but decent bargain

Todd R., Newegg
29 November 2014
  • Summary: While they fold down fairly small, the ear pieces aren't really adjustable. I find them comfortable enough for me, but you may not. Also, if you use them with glasses, they may wind up being very awkward to use. I got them on sale, and while they are decent, if I needed to replace them, I would go for a newer model.
  • Pros: Decent sound quality. Not a lot of sound leakage to those around you (a plus for my wife, who reads when I'm listening to podcasts). I don't use them for a phone headset very often, but I haven't gotten any complaints on the sound quality yet from people on the other end of the line. Battery hold a decent charge and I've gone well over 10 hours listening time without a recharge, and a couple of weeks without using it and it still having a decent charge.
  • Cons: Using Mini-B USB instead of Micro-B USB means I have to pay attention to where the cable is for charging. It is the only Mini-B cable I have, as opposed to the dozen or so Micro-B cables and home and work. The controls aren't that intuitive, and compared with some more recent models, no voice confirmation of what button you just pressed.
