"Good sound, comfortable fit, decent for mobile phones"4.0 starson by stuarth
Pros: When using these headphones, you can still hear ambient sounds. Comfortable overall- even for glasses wearers like myself. Sound is more than acceptable, and when used with a cell phone as opposed to just music listening, they work reasonably well
Cons: When used in a car, the caller has difficulty hearing me. This is not a problem in a relatively quiet environment so my guess is that the mic is not noise-canceling. Same thing outside with wind noise. When used for music, sound cuts out at times
Summary: With some limitations, I am quite happy with these. In my car- which is on the more quiet side- callers have some difficulty hearing me. When used around the house, no issues. As a music player which is what I originally bought these for, they work reasonably well, but I do experience the sound cutting out, especially if I'm moving around. This can be annoying. Comfort is pretty good, and would likely be very good if I did not have to wear glasses.
You can hear outside sound fine- it's easy to hear conversations while wearing them in the car for instance. Still, wearing headphones that cover both ears while driving is technically illegal in some states, but aside from the legal aspect, it is safe to drive with these on- at least if you're not listening to music loudly while driving. I listen to my car system while driving and frankly it sounds fine even with the headphones on.
Battery life seems very good- I have not had an issue with these. If it weren't for the sound cutting out and the apparent lack of a noise-canceling mic, these would be 5-stars in my book.
