Let's start with this. The headphones were delivered in an attractive, easy to open package. I didn't even have to break out scissors to open them. The package includes instructions, the headphones, and a small bag to carry them in. The headphones themselves looked great. They had enough cord for me to wear them with my phone in my pocket, although a few more inches of cord might have helped in the long run. After I finally figured out how to wear them (they sit in front of your ear) they were super comfortable. These are probably the lightest headphones I've worn to date. They didn't move at all when I wore them out jogging either, which is rare for anything but earbuds for me. Even me sweating didn't cause them to move.
Let's talk about sound quality for a minute. I listen to just about everything, from electronic, to rock, to audiobooks. The mid and high frequencies are phenomenal on these, as long as you're wearing them correctly. The lows, while not bad at all, leave something to be desired when compared to traditional in or on ear headphones. They are the best headphones I've ever worn for listening to audiobooks though, the voices from them are crystal clear.
Now the downsides. For something I have to charge, I wish it was wireless. Having to charge something that has a cord is kind of frustrating. I never really treated the true battery life, since I'm usually in and out of meetings, but it was definitely long enough for my uses. I don't often have a 12 hour long session wearing headphones anyways. Secondly, these aren't as discreet as you would like. If you are trying to use these like other headphones to listen to music loud enough to block others out, everyone around you can hear you. But again, the benefit of these is that you CAN hear what's going on around you, so if you're looking for something that will block sound then you'll want to look elsewhere.
Ultimately, these are great headphones for those who are looking to put music on in the background, or those who are listening to audiobooks. They are super light and comfortable.
