Consumer review by:

These things suck!


Don't buy them.

They're great if you only need them for a few uses

These things suck! but can't link with anything! No harsh abuse either...I'm pretty rough with my devices but took extra care of these. Thought they would last a lot longer, very disappointed

Nice headset


These headphones work well for what they are. They last a good amount of time and sound like what they are. These are not audiophile grade, but they get the job done if all you want to do is listen to some background music. The only problem I have...

Surround sound!


Add on adapter is well worth the extra, you can use these on any device.

I've had these for 5 months now and I LOVE them. Best sound quality available today, sounds like the whole room is filled with sound. Nuances of songs I've never heard with any other headphones. Adjustable for almost any head,(little extensions come...

Volume control is a little delicate, but I treat them gently, kinda hard to put on, but once there, they stay and are comfortable

Since these can from PA and shipping sucked bad, it didn't even come in a box, its more like a paper bag from HEB glued together. I mean i bought this a memory card, the card came in 2 days while this headphones came in 1 week :{.. these can get real...

With my Sprint EVO it works great i can walk around the room and still hear the music no cut offs or skips. I run and jump with them at the gym they dont move at all ; I also use for Raiding (WOW) or talking smack (black ops)

When using it around my apartment everyone has a wireless device that might cause some skipping. Fiting can be tiresome but soon it will be fit like a glove
