      They get the job done, but not for Audiophiles...

      ...But then again an audiophile wouldn't invest into something that was $30-50. I already own some larger bluetooth headphones that were a tad bit big on my head. I was looking for something discreet where I could still wear a hat in the winter months. I see fellow mail carriers have a similar bluetooth head around the neck with ear buds. At Best Buy, I browsed the headphone isle till I saw them on sale. I got a nice discount on them and sprung for the extended warranty (because i work outside all seasons). So far I am pleasantly pleased with them. The battery life seems alright for what they say. So I can pretty much play music my whole walking route if I so desired. It took about a week or so to get used to hitting the controls on the device blindly. Using this device to make and receive phone calls wasn't difficult. However there was indeed a big difference in quality between using this device vs just straight up talking on my phone. I think that it just simulates "speaker phone". As people would comment that they could hear everything around me when I was on the call with them. Clarity to my voice returns when I switch off bluetooth and use my phone to talk. As for music.. well. I didn't expect much. But it somewhat limits the genres I listen too. Some of the heavier stuff I listen too like My Bloody Valentine just don't sound all that stellar, but bands like Hammock in their quiet ambience sound wonderful. I played some heavy bass guitar post-punk and thought the bass part to be a tad lacking. Some of the mid to high range stuff sounds a bit like a tin can. But I think the average person isn't really going to be bothered in the end. So if you are undecided you may disregard my snobbish cons. Personally I do not think they are worth the MSRP. But $40 and below I think you should pull the trigger on them. If you are willing to drop $50 on these, you might as well throw in an extra 20-30 and get something nicer (which is what I am hoping to do in the next few months). If you need something in a pinch, and don't talk on the phone, or care about the audiophile aspect.. These are perfect for you.

      I picked up this headset on sale recently. Had a few certificates that were expiring and I wanted a better Bluetooth headset than my current one. The pros: Fairly lightweight, paired with my phone easily, very good sound quality for Bluetooth, magnetic earpiece storage works well The cons: Microphone could be better (or maybe better located). I get a lot of external noise on it which results in the other side of the call asking me to repeat myself. Power switch is a bit difficult and I'm afraid I'm going to break it off at some point. My biggest gripe, though... unless I'm totally missing something, it does not activate the phone when pushing the call button. All my previous BT headsets would activate voice dialing (or Google now) on my G4 but this one does not. It will redial the last number if you double-tap the button. I messaged Insignia and was told that this headset won't activate voice dialing. That seems very unusual. I guess I always assumed that pushing the button and activating voice dialing was a BT standard, but maybe that's not the case. I can live with having to dial from the phone, but that is the main reason I would not recommend the headset. If I find out something different, I will change my review, but until then I would not recommend.

      I have tons of Bluetooth headphones of different size and shapes including a pair of LG Tones which are similar in form and function to these. These headphones smoke the Tones. In fact they may be my favorite pair of Bluetooth headphones ever. I was in the store looking for some Noise Canceling headphones as I fly a lot. I have a pair of over the ear Noise Isolation headphones which work pretty well, but I was seriously considering purchasing something in the $300 price range with active noise canceling instead. A friendly sales person came up to me and suggested a pair of these. I was skeptical, but he had me try them on. The sound is fantastic and they do a great job of blocking out the noise. I literally started laughing because I looked at him and his mouth was moving but I could not hear him talking. These are comfortable, provide great sound, and do an excellent job of blocking out surrounding noise, plus the price is great. I have yet to find the perfect set of Bluetooth headphones, and I have not had a chance to try these in all my usual scenarios, but these have shot straight to the top of my all time favorites lists.

      Great Bluetooth Headphones!

      I bought these to use at work and I love them. I work five 10 hours days welding and I am always listening to Pandora through the bluetooth on my phone and have had no problems at all over the last 5 months I've had these. A very few times, the bluetooth has disconnected, but I don't know if it is the headphones or my phone. It rarely happens, but when it does, I just reach up and shut them off for about ten seconds and then turn it on and it always reconnects. I didn't think these would hold up with all the sparks from the welding (I do keep them covered under my collar) but they have and I expect them to last for a long time. I like the fact that when I am connected to my phone, it will vibrate and I just reach up and push the phone button and answer the call and even though I am not supposed to be on my phone, no one has any idea I am talking (the bosses might see my lips moving but they think I am probably just singing). The work area is loud but I can still talk to my daughter and she can hear me just fine. I also love the ear buds...they fit perfectly in my ears and never fall out. The charge also lasts a long time (my whole 10 hour shift). I got them on sale for just under twenty-five bucks, so I am very happy with these.

      I buy insignia ( Best Buy) brand because I believe that Best Buy always puts extra effort into making their product. Well, I was wrong with these headphone. First off, I bought them on sale and secondly I needed an in-ear bluetooth device so I bought these. Well these are the good about this item: 1. They look nice and are comfortable. 2.They stay in place when you wear them and do stuff around the house or jog. 3. They are loud enough and completely block out the outside noise These are the bad about this device 1. The range is horrible. You walk 5 feet away from your source and you loose reception. 2.The headphone has to be in direct line of vision from the source. 3.The Bluetooth headphone does not play from what it cannot see directly. 4. The Bluetooth headphone does not play when the phone is in my back pocket. The phone has to be in the front pocket of my jeans when I'm cutting grass. How weird. Overall, i use it less and less now. Not very reliable and this gets annoying when my hands are busy like doing dishes or mowing the lawn and I keep moving phone or headphone around for a good reception.

      Great for the money, but lacking...

      I bought the iPhone 7 a few weeks back, and needed another option for headphones when my phone need charged at the office, as I listen to music basically all day. I did not want to spend a fortune because I won't need to use them ALL THE TIME, just periodically. I went in to Best Buy to buy a different brand, but I spotted these on the shelf at $29.99. The cashier rang them up at $49.99, I told her they were $29.99 and she checked them on the rack and I was right, so they honored the price. I feel like I got a pretty good deal. I've used them for a couple days now and I'm pretty content with them. The audio quality is not the best (as one would expect for $30-$50 headphones) but it's okay. Very easy to use and pair with a phone. I haven't used it to call anyone yet, but I can see where the placement of the microphone would make it difficult for people on the other end to hear you. The whole apparatus is lightweight and comfortable. The different ear cushions makes it better because you can customize the fit a little better. Overall, I like these headphones so far. Pretty good deal for the price I got them. I would probably still pay the $50 for them. If you're a real stickler for music quality or will be using these hard, very often, these probably aren't for you.

      I purchased these ear buds because they were cheap, the extended warranty was cheap (total still cheaper than similar LGs). Anyway, I own 2 acres and I do a lot of work outside, messing with standard headphones get a irritating. These work very well, and hold up to gallons of sweat pouring all over them through the summer. I've dropped em, kicked em, thrown em (I missed the table and they hit tile floor) no issues. About 10 months in I was having problems with signal interruptions, probably do to the tornado that went through and I spent two back to back 15 hour days on the pouring rain wearing these while running chainsaws. Long story short, I've been beyond abusive to these things, I mean seriously if they were a person is be in jail for neglect. Still they push on, and feel squad honored the warranty replacement. So now I have a whole new set to abuse while I continue to clean up this mess from the tornado. Buy em, you'll be ok. If you're an audiofile or sound engineer, dont, but then again, why would you be in the wireless buds anyway?

      Bought these for work as a replacement for some bluetooth earbuds that quit on me. I've been very pleased with them for the price. While I'm not normally a fan of the neclace style ones, it seemed like a good idea for work since I usually only have bud in. I work as a mechanic, and so far they seem to be holding up well to the shop enviorment. The battery is good. I havne't tested it, but I can use it for 9 hours strait at work and still have a charge left when I get home. Sound quality is decent. I'd say the are comparable to $10-20 wired earbuds. Not amazing, but good for a cheap set. Range seems decent, in line with most bluetooth stuff I own. I haven't tried the mic for phone calls, as I usually have the thing tucked under my shirt collar. In short, if you're looking for a decent set of earbuds, but don't want to have to worry about snagging a wire or spending a small fortune, these are a good buy. If you are looking for amazing sound, great noise isolation, and/or something more stable for higher intensity workouts, you'll probably need to fork over a bit more money.
