Especially pleased with the mute & volume controls (they actually WORK) so not necessary to open computer files to adjust. Note that these are not the run-of-the-mill light-weight model, but fairly substantial/hefty...but comfortable. Sound quality is...

Great value (if purchased on sale)


I wear glasses, so I'm pleased that I can wear these for hours on end with minimal discomfort--they go totally around my ears and therefore don't jam my ears against the temple bars of my glasses. The USB connection also bypasses the annoying problem...
