Excerpt: I bought this NOT realizing that it went BEHIND the head and not over the head. quality is good. compactness is appreciated but have difficulty keeping it on me or my students as I purchased it for them to use with a reading program. I will pay more attention next time. I didn't realize this design was an option.
Excerpt: Reasonable and moderately comfortable for short periods - not all day. Personally I find over the head style headphones uncomfortable so these which sit behind the neck are reasonably ok. They do not block out background noise because of loose fit.
Summary: I found this over the ears design uncomfortable at first but quickly adjusted and found it comfortable. However, It had a very short life. After only about 3 months of steady use, the left ear piece became rattly, distorted and sometimes would emit no sound. I rarely used the headset for music, and volumes were always very low. So while it lasted this was a good headset.
