    I love these headsets, although their quality and features have diminished. They used to sell these under the "Rocketfish" brand, now under the "Insignia" name, and I think they had something else in between. The older versions had phenomenal sound (for the price; I cannot compare these to a good pair of B&W or JBL headphones which can run several hundreds), this version for some reason has a more muted quality, not as high quality sound as they used to be. They also did away with the double control button, so now when you hit the button you can either answer a call or get your music to play/pause. The older versions allowed you yo either wake siri and give voice commands if pressed one way, play/pause music if pressed on the other side. The main reason though I keep buying these headphones is because they are very convenient when running and exercising, they won't fall off my ears, and most important of all they don't go into my ear, which I hate. They wrap around the head nicely, are comfortable to wear, and do what they are supposed to do without isolating you from your environment. Running outdoors and not hearing traffic because your music is cranking inside your ear can be dangerous. Best Buy, if you fix the two issues it will once again be a 5 star product. One word of advice, buy these when they are on sale (which is often).

    I am very pleased with these headphones. I was considering jaybirds or bose but really didn't want ear buds. However, these were to be used exclusively for running, so they needed to be secure. They fit my medium sized head great but, if you have a large head they may be a little tight for you, as they are not adjustable. I've never seen a pair of headphones with this styling that were adjustable so I decided not to deduct a star. I prefer this style for running and these stay in place perfectly. I was concerned about sweat with the foam pads but the headphones do come with a second set of pads made of a different material. This should help with any sweat issues. As far as sound quality goes they're good enough for the price and for their intended function. These are not critical listening headphones and I will not judge them as such. I have a few pairs of high end, over ear headphones that I use for that purpose. To my ears, these sound better than my brother's jaybird bluebuds. They're also far more comfortable. Overall I'm very happy with the purchase and I would recommend them to anyone looking for an inexpensive set of sport headphones.

    Good Bluetooth Headset - One Quirk Though

    After purchasing the iPhone 7S I wanted a Bluetooth headset for running. These headphones looked very similar in design to the Sony MDR-G45 - my favorite headphones for running - so I decided to try them. The sound the headphone produces is good, but my audio-quality threshold is not very high - I mostly listen to podcasts, not music. I find the sound just fine, even for music, while I run. These are open-air headphones, so there is significant bleeding from outside sounds, but this is what I want when I run so I am aware of my environment. I thought sound-wise that these were on par with the Sony wired headphones. Controls are easy. Tactical feedback from the buttons is adequate. I have found one significant quirk. I use Runkeeper to keep track of my runs. There appears to be an interaction that after 30 minutes of running, the headphones start to continuously send out a skip forward signal without stopping. EVERY audio app is affected. I've tested three Podcast apps and the bulit-in Music app from Apple. Once this starts, I cannot power down the headphones to reset them. Connecting the power cable (USB) to the headphones is the only way to shut them down. I then need to power cycle the iPhone as well to completely clear out this condition. This is VERY frustrating, but only appears to happen with Runkeeper. I can use the headphones all day with the iPhone (battery life is excellent) without Runkeeper running, and things are fine. I purchased these on sale for $30 which I thought was an excellent value.

    I've tried (and purchased) various earbuds/headphones over the years and to me, these are the best (for my purposes). No they don't have the sound quality of the way more expensive models but I have to say they almost sound just as good. I prefer these over any of the earbud types because they stay on your ears (never fall off) and you can hear what you're listening to very well. Other earbuds tend to be drowned out by loud noises no matter how loud you turn them up. These are great for the gym or on an airplane (recently was flying and still could hear the movie I was watching on Netflix over the loud plane noise) or anywhere you have loud ambient noise. I particularly love that all the controls (power, track change/pause, volume) are on the left ear. This makes them very easy to reach when jogging on a treadmill. i almost didn't purchase these because of the ridiculous low price (around $25 because they we're reboxed). I just assumed they were low quality and almost didn't buy them. I actually tried them at the store (took them out of the box-which I probably wasn't supposed to do) and was shocked at how great they sounded. The one complaint I do have is that you don't know how long of a charge you have left.

    Good looking set of earphones but ...

    Good looking pair of earphones and a great price. Down from about $50 to $17.49. I believe they are being discontinued. Pairing with my phone appears to be easy but the band is so small that it pulls your ears back and rubs on your neck. I tried putting them on three different times to make sure I was not doing anything wrong but, still, they are entirely too tight. I concur with other reviews that convey that one's head needs to be about the size of a cat for these to fit. I thought I had purchased a kid's pair at first but even a kid would have a hard time. I was very disappointed because there are very few over the ear earphones out there. I do not like buds because I cannot stand having anything in my ears. This is very unfortunate because this a very nice looking product that likely performs well ... except for the fit. If they made it bigger I would buy one for every person in my family. I returned them this evening after buying them yesterday. Good luck!!!

    My wife and I went to Best Buy recently on the spur of the moment because I had a rewards certificate that was about to expire. My wife asked if I needed anything. I told her I was sick of the earphones I was using to listen to music on the metro (which I take daily). Earphones are uncomfortable, unhygienic, and worst of all have a poor sound quality. I have tried several, and they all lacked that deep spacial natural sound. Therefore, as I browsed through the headphone aisle, the Insignia behind-the-ear bluetooth headphones caught my eye. They were priced well and seemed practical for my daily commute. I was not expecting much, but at least slight to moderate upgrade to the earphones. Boy was I surpised! Not only are they easy to use (no more chord!), but they sound fantastic! For the price, you can't beat them. I have a couple of higher-end headphones that I use primarily at home, but on occasion I prefer using the Insignia phones because they are not tethered to a devise, are comfortable, and best of all sound great. If you are budget conscious, and cannot spend the big bucks on higher-end headphones, I highly recommend these headphones.

    Purchased twice, stopped working twice.

    I purchased these for running and the first pair worked great for about 5 months. One day I went to charge them and the red light would come on for a second and then disappear. They wouldn't charge or turn on, just dead other than the red light that would come on for a second when plugged in. I decided to get a new pair of running headphones but nothing looked like the style I wanted at BestBuy except another pair of these. Foolishly I purchased another pair, convinced the first pair died because I didn't use the sweat protection pads. This time around I had the cloth piece inside of the sweat protection pads, hoping that would keep the 2nd pair alive. Nope, less than one month of using these and they are also dead, doing the same thing the first pair did. I'm super bummed out and unfortunately threw away the receipt and box so I can't try and utilize the warranty. So much for relying on Insignia or BestBuy for running headphones, guess it's time to give my money elsewhere.

    Speakers are good; Mic is marginal; fit is awful

    The fit on these headphones is surprisingly poor. The behind-the-neck strap (salesman told me it went over the head, but it was obvious he was wrong; bought anyway) is painfully stiff and completely non-adjustable. I can't even bend it for comfort, as you would do with the bows on a pair of sunglasses. It probably would fit a small head, perhaps a child, but even then the comfort would be in question. The speakers work well. I made one phone call while in a quiet room, and was told there was a "buzz" to my voice. The button placement is unfortunate -- it is difficult to adjust the position without hitting buttons. What finally cinched it for me is that they cannot initiate a phone call (using Siri or equivalent) by pressing a button on the headset. Instead, you have to pull out your phone and do it there. Inconvenient! I have had some GREAT products from Insignia (esp. my 46" TV), but this one is just an unfortunate mistake and is being returned.
