I hate it, broke after two days
29 January 2014
Summary: By Diana After 2 hours with the bank, I finally got my money back. Amazon wants to send me a new device, but the problem is, for $300, the cheap plastic made the earcup break (it broke where the small screw attaches to the plastic) If you are over 12, DO NOT buy this item, sooner or later, your head will break the device.
Summary: By Giovanni Glass The connectivity of these headphones are ahead of any headphones. Pros: 1. NFC pairing. Pairing to Android is fast and easy. 2. Noise cancelling 3. Bluetooth with Apt-X CD quality when connected to supporting Bluetooth devices 4. A control app on PC and Android. It tells you battery life, settings and configuration. 5. USB connectivity that also charges. Thick cable. Use your headphones like a sound card to the PC. 6. Sound environments. 7.
Good audio, ANC could be better at sub-frequencies. Bad stress point design!

Summary: By Robert Joy VERY IMPORTANT: See UPDATE 2 & 3 below!!!! Let me preface this review by saying, unlike most others here I am an audiophile (actually a professional musician at one point in my life and have done audio engineering and composing for myself and others). I've also been a electrical engineer and currently work as a software engineer so I am very savvy about electronic products.
Summary: By Lewis P. "Lu Yi" Don't listen to the guys who are hating on these headphones. Obviously they don't know much about how bluetooth works. If you want the deep bass, you have to set it up that way. Bluetooth audio always sounds flat unless you change the settings! All of the problems I've seen here are nothing to do with the actual headset which I say is the best bluetooth-capable headset that I've ever used.
Summary: Ok, these headphones are expensive and the first pair I received were faulty, but all it took was one email and another pair arrived the next day, also Amazon gave me ample time to return the faulty pair which were collected by Amazon arranged courier. The headphones are really bloody comfortable, the cushioning is the softest I've experienced (and I've tried on a lot). The sound quality is spot on!
Summary: I'll keep it short and to the point. It's a lovely headset - the build quality is top quality. Can't complain about the functionality - it comes with a bunch of stuff (see item details). The software is not bad too - you can change your audio profile much like the varying 'mood' settings on your TV (movie, sports dynamic etc). The audio quality is pretty good (not perfect, sorry, I'm an audiophile).
Summary: I ordered these thinking I could use them with the bluetooth on my windows 7 laptop, unfortunately this is not the case. I use the USB cable instead and that does the trick, I can have it simultaneously connected to my iphone via bluetooth though so if I'm on the computer with my headphones on and a call comes in, i just press the button on my cans and the call is picked up.

Summary: Sometimes a piece of tech looks functional, sometimes it looks stunning - this is the latter. I'll talk about the aesthetics first as this is the first thing to strike you; the black and red looks superb, even the leads which come with it have black connectors with that same shocking orange/red cable. The stitching on the leather earpieces adds yet more detail. Sometimes a colour-scheme can look tacky, but not here. These are classy and funky looking.
Summary: I must admit that prior to these the only headphones I had used were the ones provided with my iPod. I now realise what I was missing out on! This means that this review is very positive, however I have not used different headphones to compare my experience to. They are very simple to use and hold their charge very well. They have never run out of battery when I have needed them and they charge pretty quickly through the cable into the computer.
