      Answer

      The voice quality for phone calls is great. However, the Mic is so sensitive that it picks up everything around you and is quite irritating to the person you're talking to. My advice: use these headphones for phone calls in a quiet surrounding.

        Answer

        These headphones sound good while Bluetoothed. I believe the range is from 5 HZ to 22KHZ. These also come with a wire and you will get more range 3HZ to 28KHZ when wired. So you get the best of both. I will tell you that I am listening to them wirelessly right now and they sound great.

          Would these headphones be good in a gym?   (5 Answers)

            Answer

            I have these headphones and I go to the gym 4-5 days a week. I never take these to the gym. 3 reasons they won't work well in a gym: 1. I think the big earpads would soak up a ton of sweat, and possibly get moldy. 2. if your exercise includes running like mine does, or even situps, the headphones are so big and bulky that they would most likely fall off. 3. they stick off of your head pretty far and I would feel awkward wearing these giant headphones as I worked out. I stick with earbuds. If this answer was helpful please give kudos, and if it answers your question please select it so that it can help others find the answer as well. Thank you!

              Answer

              It comes with a USB to Micro USB charger cable. You have to hook the cable up to a USB port and the micro side to the headset for it to charge. Full charge from full depletion takes around 4 hours.

              I am interested in these headphones. I plan on keeping these for a good three years. Does the Geek squad protection cover accidental handling damage like if I drop them and they break and or I spill coke on them would it cover that OR just an extended warranty as long as they are not damaged by accidental breakage/damage???
