    works, but clunky

    Bought this originally for the price, and ya it's a good price I would suppose for the quality. Noise cancelling- works well, does live up to that. Size- the largest earplugs I've ever seen in my life, not conspicuous at all and you have giant speakers hanging out of your ears. The retractable cord thing i dig, never had a pair of headphones have that. It's alright, just make the speakers smaller.

    It was on sale and I thought it would be a great deal but unfortunately it wasn't worth the sale price. Headphones were big and gaudy when I took it out of the package. When I placed them around my neck it felt like I was wearing a horseshoe. Sound quality was ok at best. Right ear went out after only a couple of months. Didn't even want it after that. It paired well with my phone but that was about it.

    Pretty Good sound, a little awkward at times

    So these were technically for my mom, but I used them, too. What we found: pretty good sound quality, though they can tug on your ears at times. In terms of answering you phone with them, they are a little awkward to put on in a hurry, but if you wear them around your neck like a toque of communication and tunes, then it's pretty easy. This is not an issue for my, but my mom didn't like wearing the unit around her neck at all times.

    Better than Samsung's

    Best set of behind the neck headphones I have owned to date. Great Sound, Excellent battery life. and I found the noise-cancellation to be better than Samsung's similar model that i owned previously. Only downside is that the noise-canceling does not turn off with the headset. Have to turn off the noise-cancellation separately or it will remain on and drain the battery.

    I’ve spent couple thousand on different head phones, buds, etc. These are as good as any bud type out there at a fraction of the cost. I’m hard on buds, workout, sweat etc. Fried my last three LG devices w sweat. These Insignia branded buds are near indestructible! Great sound. Not a sexy look but work great. I get so tired of expensive buds dying after a few uses. I would definitely buy again.

    It sits almost unnoticed around my neck and the length of the wire on the retractable earbuds can be set to the perfect length. A simple button push for each side and the wires retract into the body of the unit. The on/off button is recessed slightly between the volume buttons so that it is easy to turn on and off without taking it off from around the neck. For acoustic music the sound is great -- don't know about metal, etc.

    These headphones provide good sound and have a comfortable fit. The retractable ear buds is a nice feature but the answer button is hard to find when answering a call because it is recessed too low. Another problem that I experienced is the separation distance is not that great and I can't talk on the phone while the phone is on my side in a holster. The phone has to be visible to the headset.

    I bought this Bluetooth on 3 different occasions because of the price. I refuse to buy a Bluetooth for $100 and they all break eventually. Its great once the phone is insight.. The range is not so great. i.e going from room to room you will lose connection. The volume is great, you can speak and hear really good. Good to music too.

    No Comparison to LG Counterpart

    this purchase was a replacement of my LG headphones that was lost. The sales rep recommended as an affordable option. My primary use is for hands free cell phone conversation & I wore the LGs frequently. I found the Insignia sound quality acceptable. the bulkiness of the Insignia is too uncomfortable to wear all day and the earbuds would not stay comfortably in my ear. Will replace with another LG

    I bought these for my boyfriend who needs these for his work. He LOVES them and says they are perfect. He only uses one bud at a time... he needs to be able to hear what is going on around him. He works with machines and can't always hear his phone go off, so these tell him when it does, on top of him being able to listen to some music, too! They have a long battery life for him, which he needs.

    Good headphones for price

    These headphones are pretty decent for the price. They sound good, the battery last approximately 8hours with a full charge. Noise cancelling actually works, I know!! I use them for work and it's machines running non stop. Retractable headphones actually work very well. Very lightweight, but the material seems kinda like cheap plastic. Other than that they are great.

    Used by my daughter. She doesn't hear me when I call her and she is wearing the headphones, doesn't hear traffic noises when crossing streets. She has hyperacusis and loud noises distress her. Other headphones that she has had blocked disturbing sounds but did not eliminate all sound. These are potentially hazardous. I only allow her to wear them under parental supervision.

    These headphones are junk! I bought a pair and within 3 months they stopped charging and when i would turn my head the sound would cut out. I returned them and got a second pair and 3 months later they again had issues charging and would cut in and out. These are a poor design. I took them back and got a completely different brand... i wouldnt buy these if i were you!

    Entry level headset for business use

    I find the unit bulkier than I like for use during the business day and the button to accept calls does not allow me to do outbound calls or texts like my LG unit I had before this one. Also the retractable feature is adequate but the cord gets tangled all the time. Also this unit does not work well with my business shirts and specifically the collar

    I bought a pair of these last year for my boyfriend who works outside all year long and is around loud machinery. He LOVES these! They are tough, have great sound and he can hear his music and his phone go off over the noise. He loves the retractable wires... keeps them from getting tangled up. I bought him an extra pair for Christmas!

    I use the headphones every day at work. I like them because they're not bulky and the buttons are easy to reach when you're using them. It has nice sound quality, and the phone feature when I'm driving or out walking in the park is great. Also, the battery life is good so you're not spending all of your time charging the headset.

    I plugged the headset in and the red charging light appeared. I checked on it in 2 hours. Not charged. I unplugged it and plugged it back in. Light came on again but only stayed on for 3-5 minutes. Never charged. I returned this and got the black one instead. It did the same thing. I am going to return it and buy a different product!

    Ear Plugs?

    I am use to over the ear head phones but... these ear plugs are acceptable to me. But for ear plugs this device rates 5 stars. The sound is excellent, the noise canceling is much better than others I have owned. Getting use to using the controls while wearing the collar takes practice. More for some than others.

    This bluetooth is just ok. My husband bought these. His job requires him to drive quite a bit. He says that the sound quality isn't that good. When he calls me, he often sounds like he is far away. He says that he gets complaints from the person he's speaking with about them not being able to be hear him. He purchased the warranty so he will be returning it soon.

    Just ok wireless headphones. Nice voice features let's you know when its powered on, connected, etc. Does not have very good range at all. If not for that would give much higher rating. Use for my S9+ all the time. Keep my phone in my back pocket and sound comes through like static just from that short distance way too frequently.
