Best bluetooth headphones i've tried...
Posted by: gemrookie from: Las Vegas, NY on
First, i want you all to know that i am a techno-junkie. I will try as many items as possible to know that i own the best. A couple of months back, i was in the market for bluetooth headphones to pair with my iPhone, as i travel quite a bit. Admittedly, since they are not of the in-ear variety, i had concerns that they wouldn't work well on an airplane, where it is extremely noisy. Also, keep in mind, that i tried a handful of other bluetooth headphones before settling on the AF32's. To name a few, i've tried the Jaybirds, Motorola's and Wireless Rhythm by Mikey's. Also, tried a few others. To begin with, for on-ear headphones, i couldn't believe how the cabin noise from a plane had no effect on the sound/music i was listening to. For example, even the voices in movies i was watching, was very easy to hear. Now for the shocker. The bass that came from the AF32's was shocking. It wasn't boomy at all. What i heard, was crisp bass that sounded on par with some of my go-to over the ear headphones. Pairing the headphones to my iPhone couldn't have been easier. Better yet, it charges quickly via USB and holds a charge for quite a long time. I don't know how long it's rated, but i got 7 hours on my last trip with juice to spare! If i could make just one comment that i'd like improved on future models, concerns the built-in microphone. In quiet areas, the person on the other end of the phone had no idea i was wearing headphones. With lots of noise in the background, the person i was talking to commented that they were hearing quite a bit of noise. Honestly though, i bought these for their ability with music. When i'm in a noisy environment, i simply switch back to using the iPhone's microphone. Let me tell you that it's a very small price to pay for the ability to listen to my music wirelessly, where the music sounds 100x better than i could have ever hoped. Allow me to save you time. If you are in the market for the best sounding bluetooth headphones, look no further. Don't be fooled by the reasonable price. They are truly that good! I don't know how Meelectronics did it! I will now be buying a few other AF32's as gifts for friends and colleagues. If i can leave you off with one final word, it would be "Wow!" Please keep in mind that i have no affiliation with the company or company representatives. Also, it is very rare that i take the time to write a review of products that i own. However, after spending some time with these, i couldn't help myself.

Simple and Excellent Sound
Posted by: DangerZoneDweller from: El Paso, TX on
Initially bought these for gaming so that I could chat with friends (on Ventrillo) and not have that cable drooping over my arms. Didn't work out. But the more I researched I found that it wasn't the headphones fault, it was Bluetooth in general. Bluetooth won't process a microphone in mono and stereo audio at the same time. The result is using your device in pure mono. Not so great. Again, not the headsets fault. So with this in mind, I don't game with the device using Bluetooth, I use my other wired gaming headset.
All that aside, I love this headset. It was only $59, and I use it daily. I use it for my Galaxy Note 8, PC, Motorola Droid Razr Maxx when I'm not home, and at the gym.
The fit is just right for my head, and I like how it's very light. I don't feel like I have a giant headset on that can come flying off If I move my head to quickly.
The sound is superb, I was extremely surprised how good the bass was. I typically listen to Hip Hop and House music, so that was key for me. I bought these online, so I was worried they would not meet my needs. But they did.
The Bluetooth connection is decent. Although, my other headsets have not been any better. I imagine this is probably related to the fact that my entire house is wireless. My wife and two kids use tablets daily, their gaming consoles are wireless, in addition to their laptops and my wifes PC. That combined with our wireless Smart TV's, and wireless stereos in the bathrooms... we have alot of RF floating around in the house. I'll cut this a break. I can typically walk about 30' away before it starts to break up. Although, I think this is the maximum that the FCC will allow, so no heartache there.
The device pairs quite easily, and I use it on several devices, so I don't have any complaints in this department.
Battery life is actually really good. I can go 3 days or so using it for about 4 hours a day. I don't let them sit on the charger when not in use, because that is probably bad for any device. When I go to charge them, the connect is bad, so I have to let the headphones sit at an angle on top of the connector so that it gets a good connection and charges. I'm sure it's the cable and not the headset, as the headset comes with a wired cable so that you can use this headset in wired mode.
Using the headset in wired mode is a really nice feature, as if I'm low on charge I don't have to seek out a new headset.
The headset also folds up for easy storing, and they provide a nice little felt bag in case you need to pack these up for traveling. Nice touch if you ask me.
That's my review, hope this helps somebody out.
I highly recommend these if you're looking for a headset that is cheap and really meets these primary needs:
Easy to Pair to multiple devices
Long life and charges using a USB plug
Folds up for easy packing

They are pretty good!
Posted by: Oaktownvinny from: Oakland, Ca on
They have a very long battery life. I use them everyday and haven't had to recharge them. Sometimes, though, the sound drops and I don't know why since they get good reception through my car, through walls in my apartment and from pretty far away, but when my phone is in my pocket, the sound drops out, until I place my phone near the headphones. Another thing is that I bought these to work out with, but they aren't very secure on my head, but i guess it's better a little unsecured than hella tight on my head, so I exercise mindful that they can fall off. Other than that, they are pretty good!

Good headphones for the price
Posted by: anr7378 from: Lititz,pa on
Bought this for my 11 yr old because she broke 3 pairs of ones that had the wires within 2 months. They on do the job well. They stay charged forever. She didn't like the fit on the ear when she 1st put them on but with the sound on she says she doesn't feel them. They do slip down her head often which is the only downfall I would day.

Great quality for a low price
Posted by: BigDaddyRT from: East Tennessee on
I did a lot of research before buying these and am very pleased with them. There is no reason to spend 300 bucks for headphones when you can buy these for 70 like I did, they are EASILY worth double what they cost. The blutooth range is rated at 30 feet but that is an underatatement. I work in a machine shop and can leave my iPhone or iPad in my toolbox and walk behind a sheetmetal wall that is 50 feet away and they still dont skip! They only skip when I am behind that wall AND behind a machine! The only problem I had was the FIRST time I tried to pair them, I wasnt holding the button down long enough, beware of that and read the instructions better than I did and you will be fine.

Awesome bluetooth headphones for the price!
Posted by: Kstage from: Austin, TX on
I have been researching Over the Ear bluetooth headphones for some time. I work in an IT environment, if I'm not on conference calls then I'm listening to music to drown out surrounding noise while I work all day at a computer. Since I have to go back and forth from call to music I typically use the ear buds that came with my phone, that have a mic.
I may be the only one, but earbuds get sooo uncomfortable after hours of use. I tried a Jawbone for about a day, can't do the bluetooth in ear either..
Over the ear BT headphones prices vary so much and can get very expensive on top of that I don't know that I would like them.. I bought these because they were cheap as a test run... After about 4 hours at work I LOVE them. They drown out a majority of outside noise without completely blocking all sound. (Which is good if someone is calling your attention) Music sounds WAY better than I would have imagined for the price. Of course BT headphones in general have a way to go.. these are great. So far so good on conference calls, other callers can't even tell I'm on a headset!! That's better than my earbud mic!!!
If you are hesitant to buy a bluetooth over the ear headphone set, start with this one. I will likely upgrade to higher quality set eventually.... but for now I'm 100% satisfied. They are comfortable to wear all day long! Also not to mention NO WIRES!
The only slight flaw is they are smaller than your typical skull candy hesh or beats over the ear set. They fit my head/ears perfectly, but if you can you should look at them in the store or google pictures of them on someone - to make sure you like the way they look.

Great Value for feature set
Posted by: YazooWho from: Gilbert, AZ on
I was looking for a bluetooth headset to watch movies/TV shows on my tablet. For the price, these headphones are a great product for a bluetooth headset with mic. They paired up easily with my Asus Tablet and also my GNEX Phone. They are very comfortable and the sound quality is better than I expected. Great Support...I emailed MEElectronics about a question and received a response within 24 hours.

Favorite Headphones Ever!
Posted by: SoftballChic from: Beach Park, Il on
I'm a border line headphone snob(I can tell the difference between good head phones, and sub-par headphones) and I LOVE these headphones. They were easy to set up, easy to connect, have great sound quality, and I have yet to have to recharge them. I have been able to pair them with all my devices, and they continue to connect without problem. When I got them I was a little hesitant because some on ear headphones press on my cartilage piercing so hard that it hurts, but these are super comfortable, and stay on my head without being super tight.
