Summary: I bought these about 4 years ago, and I've been using them on and off ever since, alternating between my portapro's and ksc75's.
Obviously both koss headphones sound far superior to the veiled uninspiring sound of the halo. But I keep coming back to the halo. And here is why.
Summary: look good. simple sleek. don't look like one of those people using studio grade (or look alike) headphones walking down the street. Do cut out when in pocket and cycling. sometimes bc of bumps or leg interference.
Pros: wireless or wired if you want! WINNING!? stereo headphones that collapse when storing, extend to form to head, and accept calls and adjust volume at the touch/ slide of finger!
Summary: Contacted customer support by email and after a week I contacted them again. STILL NO RESPONSE! DO NOT BUY! Unreliable product with even more unreliable customer service.
Pros: For the week it worked it sounded great!
Cons: After a week or so of moderate use the HALO now cuts out every 5-10 minutes. Its still connected (bluetooth) there just isnt any sound for a about a minute or so, then sound, then a few minutes, then no sound... I suspect it has to do with the weak and flimsy folding aspect of the headphones. Con...
Summary: Admittedly, I bought the headset right after Christmas 1.5 years ago, so when I contacted them about any help, because it never has worked right, but I had thrown it in a drawer and forgot about it I told them when i bought it and that I didn't have a receipt.
Pros: Fit is great, sound is great.
Cons: Battery is trash and customer service is worse.
Summary: Bought this for Ventrilo use on my laptop. While it still picks up a lot of background noise and the voices come through kind of strange, its better than the laptops built in mic.
Pros: Comfortable, portable, Amazing sound quality over stereo, good battery life, easy to pair, wireless with the option of 3.5mm jack for non blue tooth devices and no bright annoying light on the outside of the device.
Cons: Touch sensitive buttons are hard to find to skip tracks and its not great for ventrillo.
Summary: Would be easy to recommend without reservation if the signal were better, even in spite of the non-tactile interface design. But I can only really recommend this if what you are connecting to is something that isn't going to spend most of its time in your pocket while listening to it.
Pros: Very comfortable. Easy to pair and connect. Great audio quality.
Cons: There are very specific reasons why tactile buttons exist in other headphones, and those reasons largely revolve around situations where you can't see where you're pressing (i.e. on your ears while listening to music). Difficult to do the "double-tap to advance track" gesture without missing the ...
Cons: I charged the headset for 2hrs like the instructions said! I couln't get it to turn on. So I called Newegg for help and they said make sure the headset was extened outward until I feel a click, I did that. Then I charged for 2 hrs again because the guy said it never charged when in the off positi...
Pros: This is a very robust and attractive device. I use it with my cell phone and two different Macs (personal laptop and desk machine at work). It pairs quickly, the sound quality is very good and it doesn't block outside sounds so you can hear people and beepers. Extra kudos for using mini-USB for c...
Summary: I use this primarily to listen to episodes of my favorite TV shows as I go to sleep. It's nice to be untethered...I can listen while lying on either side, back, or stomach, twist and turn with no cords choking me!
Pros: Sound is great. Touch controls are a nice touch. Comfortable for an hour or so, then I need a few minutes with them off. can move about 20 ft away unobstructed or 15 feet away with a wall between with none or little interruption. Good battery life
Cons: Sometimes connection takes a minute. Could be my phone (Samsung Captivate). Skipps infrequently during some video playback. This could also be my phone or video app that's causing the problem.
