"Do the job but not designed to fliter ambient noise"3.0 starson by Techie_Jr
Pros: Durable design
Designed to look like a regular pair of headphones instead of ones to be uses w/ a phone
Stay put on your ears, even when active
Sound is very clear & can go very loud
Call quality is good
Cons: Would be nice if they came w/ a case
Hard to get used to putting them on
Can be a bit uncomfortable if not adjusted properly
Do not block outside noise
Summary: Been using these headphones for a couple weeks now. I like them but wanted to make sure the world knows they AREN'T designed to block out ambient noise.
Design: Very durable construction. The way they hook over your ears means they will definitely stay in place while running or working out. I used them while jogging and had no problems. The telescoping design of the ear buds can be hard to get used to. They pretty much lock in place after you set them but if you adjust them too close to your ears they'll make them sore. They also can be a bit ackward to put on... especially when first using them. Controls are easy to get used to w/ a rocker that allows you to adjust volume/skip tracks, one button dedicated to play/pause and another for answering calls. If you press the button to pause the music the mic turns on to enhance ambient noise. A feature I kinda like but kinda don't because if you forget you did it and take the headphones off, it drains the battery.
Sound: Sound quality is very clear, both when listening to music and receiving calls. Though there is no boom for a mic, I have received no complaints regarding being able to hear me or that the wind is loud in the speaker on a breezy day. There are approximately 12 steps for the volume, with the headset making a chime that matches the level you're on: higher pitched chimes for louder volume, lower pitched for softer. As I mentioned before, these headphones don't filter out ambient noise so they are best used for people who appreciate that feature: People who jog on the streets or do things where they need an idea of what's going on around them (i.e. if you're at work). The only real way to filter out ambient noise is by increasing the volume really high, which isn't good for your ears. The range for the headsets is average.
Overall: I'd recommend the headphones as the sound is very clear and you hear calls through both ears. As long as you don't expect them to block outside noise, you'll be please with the product.
