    Outstanding value, great battery life

    I tried many different wireless over the head headphones to complement my lighter headphones from over $200 models to this unit. Highly recommend you give this unit a try. It is the better value than more expensive headphones. First, the sound. There is little of the artificial base boost in these units although base is deep and rich. I found that the artificial base boost not only distorted music but created ear fatigue quickly. Frequency response for music from base lows, mids and high is good and uniform with no clipping, even at higher volumes. These units work for classical, pop, rock and spoken voice equally well. Build quality: the units are light and lack some of the more rigid structural reinforcement of higher end models on head band which makes them lighter. I found this an acceptable balance. Battery life: Unit lasts easily 8-10 hours on a single charge. Voice sync notification and other features work well.

    Not all headphones are created equal

    I want to start this review by saying I'm not a major tech guy and I'm not an audiophile, but I did purchase this pair of headphones for a family trip (we already owned a Beats Solo3). This pair was less expensive than the solo3 and was going to be for my son for the long flights and drives on the trip. After a week of pairing it with iphones, ipads and computers on the plane and in the hotel, I can say that it is okay. This is good for a less pricey option and you will need to keep it fully charged before trips (has a shorter battery life). It also seemed to be more challenging to pair with all the devices than the beats, but I understand that we were pairing with mostly apple products. But my advice would be buy, if you want a less expensive option and are going to be using it at home or shorter road trips (for the kids), otherwise I would recommend spending the extra cash and get the Beats.

    Decent Headphones

    I got these on sale for $50, and because of that, they are somewhat worth the value. They regularly go for $80, and the quality is not worth that. They are some of the cheaper wireless headphone options on the market, so if that's all your looking for, I'd recommend, but in terms of quality, the material is very cheap (not worth $80, barely worth $50). The sound quality is solid, but they don't get as loud as one would necessarily like. My biggest knock on these is the cheap plastic, as it almost feels as if they're going to break everytime I pick them up or put them down. My opinion, if you can get them for less than $50 (probably worth more near $40), they're worth it if you want wireless headphones. If you can only get them at full retail ($80), I'd recommend saving up for a better quality pair, or just get some wired headphones for cheaper.

    Practically a Steal!

    I've really wanted a set of Bluetooth headphones for a while and they always seemed to be out of my price range. However, I saw this pair on sale and had to buy them. The volume on these is great, but their only drawback is that they are not noise-cancelling headphones. They connect so easily to my smartphone that the only way it would be easier would be if it just automatically connected to your phone. It's great that I can answer a call while, I'm using these...sometimes I have some yard work that I need to do, so I need a hands free set sometimes. I only wish that these headphones had an option to skip songs while I am wearing them, mainly because it get annoying having to pull your phone out of your pocket to do so. A great pair of headphones that will not set you back a ton of money!

    I bought these because of cost only and for the money I'm pretty happy with the quality. They turn on automatically with the nfc by just touching your phone to the headphones, which is pretty cool. They hold a decent charge so you get many hours of listening between charges. The wireless part is sweet and I haven't lost connectivity ever. The only knock on them is the shape of the plastic that goes over your head. Maybe thats just the way they're all being made these days but the fact that all the display models in the store were broken shows that people just naturally over extend these headphone while putting them on, so be careful not to do that. But they are comfortable and have decent sound quality.

    These work very well for my purposes of watching TV with headphones so others can sleep. I needed an inexpensive over the ear headphones as I also wear hearing aids. These sound fine. Certainly for the 39.00 sale price. However they are not very comfortable, though tolerable. They sync very easily to my DVD player that has Bluetooth and they hold a charge very well. The micro usb charger makes it very easy to charge. These are decent phones and good for the price if cost is a key factor and you want Bluetooth wireless, over the ear phones.

    One bad thing

    The sound is great. Bluetooth instantly connects to my tv. Battery lasts about 3 nights of late night viewing. When the battery is low it gives a warning and a couple minutes later, turns off. The bad thing is that you cannot use the head phones while charging. If it goes out in the middle of a program, I'm basically done for the night. My last headphones allowed viewing and listening while charging. So, I try to remember to charge after 2 nights.

    One of the best bang for your buck

    Sound quality is average, but if you tweak your bass settings on your device (laptop or smartphone) it sounds better. The range is amazing, it can keep sound coming through even if you're more than 10 meters away and a couple of drywalls in between (guess it also depends on the device you're connected to, but I use it with a Samsung S7 Edge). Now, when used to have a call via cellphone or a Skype-like services, the audio coming and going is extremely clear. The only downside is that you can't use it while charging, other than that I'm very pleased.

    Sony MDR-ZX220BT review
    The Sony MDR-ZX220BT Bluetooth headphones are an on-ear pair with minimalist looks. They're very reasonably priced for a wireless pair, so we were intrigued to see whether these headphones could stand up to more expensive models sound-wise. OurFull Review
