"SAVE YOUR RECEIPT!"4.0 starson by nolsen311
Pros: Ease of pairing: 10.0 Music quality: 9.0 Volume: 8.0 Call quality: 8.0
Cons: Construction quality is poor. very poor. no joke.
Summary: Headphones were paired (simultaneously) with Sony TMR-BT8iP (iPod Bluetooth Adapter)and HTC Kaiser (AT&T Tilt).
I was able to listen to music via iPod and swap to a call with no effort. Connection lag is almost nonexistent.
Music quality seemed excellent on high-bitrate (e.g., high-quality) MP3 and AAC files.
Callers reported my voice to clear and easily heard with the exception of noisy background (seriously, do we really expect to be heard over loud background noises?)
The headphones *do* take 3 hours to fully charge. Every time.
However, I could use them for more than an entire work day (10 hours) without re-charging. (I estimate a bit more than 2/3 empty)
The plastic construction from the hinge to the earpieces is the flimsiest piece of plastic I've seen in recent years. I'm not joking, this plastic is seriously brittle. It **BEGS** to be broken.
I have been taking great care with these headphones, wearing them only while at work (programmer: I don't exactly have an "active" job) and yet, have managed to break 3 pairs of these in **EXACTLY** the same place within 30 days.
My first pair was purchased on 10/27, broken less than 1 week later.
I was able to exchange.
The second pair was exchanged on 11/8.
I will be returning the third pair tonight. The beauty of these headphones is COMPLETELY overshadowed by their inability to stay in one piece.
Just for a side note: the location where it breaks is also quite sharp and tends to stab into my head right above my right ear.
Available at Verizon Wireless for $79.99!
(no, you don't have to be a customer, but why would you wait around otherwise?!)
