      Decent sound with dealbreaking fit

      I was shocked by how much I liked the audio quality. There's a sweet spot in the unit's own amplifcation when connected by bluetooth. Above that spot, which is about halfway up, the audio degrades quickly. The bass gets boomy, the mids get gravelly, the highs get lost. Graduating down from the sweet spot, the clarity gets better but of course your volume will be capped off. If you connect the 3.5 stereo jack (included) you will bypass this internal equalization -- which resulted in a balance that I greatly preferred and a stronger musical performance through all comfortable decibel levels. They were even better after letting them break-in for a while. UNFORTUNATELY...wow, wow, wow do these things HURT my ears. There is an incredible, ridiculous amount of pinch exerting itself across an almost comical lack of padding. This sinister cocktail of too much and too little conjures up an unmitigable bear clasp that forces my ears to make contact with the speaker grills after a very brief period (minutes) of foam compression (note: I have very small ears and a medium-small hat size). Before long the pain is throbbing, it is radiating from every external part of my ear other than the lobe, and the unit has created an ache that will last for dozens of hours beyond the listening session. So...30 minutes with these cans can be nearly sublime, maybe longer for you. For me, though, the hulk smash effect has proven to be cumulative. I can't even put them on now. They bring me instant agony. Embarrassingly, I also bought them as a gift for a friend. Going to return mine. Perhaps these are a nice idea for a child or someone with zero ear compression sensitivity. At regular price, the build quality is lacking. The acoustic "mechanical pong" of the cheap menu buttons, in my opinion, are at borderline unsafe levels. Maybe it's a one-off with mine, but if not, I hope that will be addressed by the manufacturer. Overall, I truly say too bad...what a shame. Nice sound that didn't fatigue my eardrums paired, diabolically, to a medieval torture device.

      Just fantastic!

      To the point: they are just fantastic. In detail: They fit perfectly. I have a big head I wear a size 7.5 hat. Pretty big ears. These fit over the ears nicely and not too tight despite one person who disputed that must have Dumbo's head or Barry Bonds. The sound quality is so so good. I needed these for the PS4 and TV when the MRS is reading. Someone mentioned not having instructions, well that was a fluke bc mine did and they aren't needed anyway. You press and hold power to sync the device. No magic necessary. You do have to get a bluetooth transmitter NOT RECIEVER for your tv to use these and there will be a slight lag when using them on a TV, but nothing intolerable. There is no lag with the iPhone though and you have the option to use a cord connection which means you don't need to waste the charge to use it with a smartphone or MP3. I have only owned these for one week, but I am 100% satisfied. Better than turtle beach and skull candy headphones by far. These do have a microphone if you need to take a call. Works great too. Just fantastic. If these hold up for a couple of months I am getting another set for work. Seriously though you'll be like me and wonder why 30 dollar headphones are getting good reviews. Then if you're smart you'll try them and then you'll love them.

      Insignia bluetooth headphones

      After a few weeks I am happy with my purchase of these headphones. I was lucky to get these for 24.99 on sale. The headphones are very sturdy and does not feel cheap or flimsy. The headphones are make of plastic and faux leather and are cushioned nicely. The battery life has been good so far. They charge within an hour or so. Not sure if I am getting the supposed 10 hours of use. But I have not had to charge them a lot. The sound is nice for being Bluetooth on the cheap. They are very bass heavy which was a surprise. The general sound it nice. They are not sound blocking so don't expect that from these. I have not noticed any drops or sound deterioration so far. The Bluetooth seems to be strong for its price range. My only complaint on this headphones ear cups tend to hurt my ears after a while. They are tight and snug for my head & ears. Also I have to let my ears breathe after a long while of using it for music/movies. Also the ON/OFF button you have to press hard pressure, so that is a bit annoying but they sync well. Overall I was surprised how good these headphones sound great and build it nice. If you are someone who needs a spare for emergencies they are good. These will NEVER compete with higher range headphones with materials or better sound but they aren't horrible either. These are good for general users that need good (not excellent) sound and bass without a huge price tag.

      great headphones

      full disclosure: bought them on sale and used some rewards points to get them for free basically, which undoubtedly makes me feel like they are a better value than buying them full price. that said, if i break these i wont hesitate to buy a replacement at full retail. they fit well on my big-ish head and are comfortable. i bought them to listen to music while running my snow blower. wireless speakers just arent loud enough and i hate in-ear headphones. these not only are loud enough to hear over my blower, but they can drown it out completely if a sufficiently loud song is played. i will say, they are a tad warm when i'm outside dealing with snow but oddly, as i wear them right now they arent too warm... so, that's weird. might have something to do with my heavy black canvas insulated overalls and coat that i wear over my jeans and black tee-shirt. sound quality is decent. has enough bass to shake earwax loose without rattling your brain. havent noticed any extra loud or quiet tones yet. cant comment on battery life yet, but will say i pulled it out of the package and promptly wore them for about an hour and a half without charging. mostly plastic and faux leather. the textured design on the back of the cups scratches easily. i put a couple in there with my finger nail. seem like they should last a good while before any compromising wear will occur. buttons are difficult to use with thick gloves on but otherwise they are easy to use and respond within 3 seconds. there is a small blue indicator light on the right earcup to indicate the headphones are on.

      Great sound quality, too hard on the ears

      Posted
      JJ4udiophile

      This would have been a 5 stars but for 2 things they can't be the greatest headphones. When I try them I was amazed by the sound quality, the basses were deep and nice, the way I like. Making audio calls were good too, the person at the other side of the phone could hear me clearly (not crystal clear, phone quality, but good at a normal voice intensity) The price is awesome in the current market, for an over the ear headphones, but, aparently is for ears smaller than mine. They start hurting from the time you put them on. I was hoping this will ease overtime, but I'm loosing hopes on that. They are too tight, I think I'll try to get thicker earpads for them. The othe annoying thing is the battery low signal. From the moment that battery is low and on you'll get the notification like every minute (just guessing) but is very very bad for the user experience. I take, for instance, another Bose BT Speaker: if the battery is low it will inform it just once per session, i.e.: when it turns on, or when it reaches the battery low threshold... and thats it. Is silly, and annoying the constant reminder because it renders the headphones useless. Hope it helps. If you have any comments on the earpads I'll be more than thankful.

      The Best Bluetooth Headphones I've Ever Owned.

      Posted
      Carolyn318

      The original reason I ordered these was to use a $5 certificate I had that would expire September 1st and I didn't want it to expire unused. Plus, the bluetooth headphones I was using were starting show their cheapness. Now that I've got these, I LOVE THEM!!! I regret not ordering them sooner, with or without the $5 certificate. I had some of those Vivtar Make A Splash [Water Proof] Bluetooth headphones. They only cost me 7 dollars and something or 14 dollars and something before sales tax when I bought them at Walmart a little over a year ago, or maybe it was 2 years ago. On those Vivitar headphones, the little rubber piece that goes on the top of your head in the center of the inside of the headband has its glue oozing out from under it like honey. , I could tell by the picture that these headphones are much better quality in how they're built. They also block out outside noises way better than those Vivitar, or any other over-the-ear headphones I've ever had. I would DEFINITELY recommend these to any one looking for a really good pair of over-the-ear bluetooth headphones.

      Excellent Budget Wireless Headphones

      These Insignia(Best Buy Branded) wireless headphones are awesome. I have to really put them up there with the base and clarity quality of some DJ headphones that are hundreds more. I am still amazed at what you get for the price. The headphones we're easy to pair with my Samsung Galaxy Player 4.2 and if you really want to get better sound then just use an eualizer to change to your preferred sound. It is a true over-the-ear set and they feel great. The battery life is exceptional as well. And it only takes about 1 1/2-2 hours to charge. The only real issue I have with the headphones is I wish the actual driver size, i.e. 30mm, 40mm, etc..., was given to the consumer or to the true headphone enthusiasts on the box it came in. The volume is just right and not too loud and the base and treble is just right. I would purchase these again in a heartbeat. Now I am a little reluctant on purchasing the Creative Labs Outlier Black Wireless Headphones for $59.99. As it has a true 40mm driver. Give these a shot and you won't be disappointed.

      OK cans

      I don't typically use wireless cans because I hate the thought of charging them up when I have to use them, and I don't really like to keep things charged up all the time in case I decide to use it. I use headphones about 8 hours a day, and cords were annoying so I thought I'd give these a try. Sound quality is mediocre. Muted, dull, lots of punchy bass (which isn't really what I'm looking for.) I'm more used to monitor type of headphones where sounds are generally crisp and level. Not with these. They fit my head perfectly fine, and I have a big head. They do clamp pretty hard so they're uncomfortable after about 2 hours of use. Battery life is surprisingly good - lasts about 7 hours, but I took them off well before that out of discomfort. Overall I'm satisfied with them given the price point that I got them at. I'm sure if I wanted something with similar features, I would have paid triple the price that I purchased them and probably gotten similar quality as well.
