A bit fuzzy


Stated nowhere i could find there is a on/off switch with a +/- control on the headset. It requires batteries and it didn't say where to put them in but I found it by twsting the right pad and it unlocks. It takes 2 tripple A's.

Comfortable fit and a nice portable technique. Not bad for 40$ I'd say

You can hear a descent amount of white noise when the headphones are on max also there is abrely any information about the mechanics of the headset with the instructions other than battery replacement
