I just received these headphones a couple of days ago. I have used them for many hours since receiving them, and am very impressed. They fit snug, and the sound is nice. I was listening to my music and a call came through, the caller was able to hear me well through the hidden microphone. I love the convenience of the controls on the headset as well, and the setup for pairing to bluetooth was simple and quick. I have owned two high priced wireless headsets in the past (though neither were bluetooth), and was very disappointed. If there are any changes after more usage, I will update, but as for now - once again, I am very well pleased.
Considering the price, this is a nice value. The quality is quite good at this price point. I like the fact that they fold up, as many others do not. I agree with other reviewers critical of the proprietary charging cable. I hate having to keep track of so many cables. These works well with my iPhone 4S, and pairing was quite simple. All of the buttons work as advertised, and I like the feel of the controls. It is easy to learn where everything is by feel. I was disappointed with the audio quality for music, and surprised by the positive reviews related to audio quality. I am admittedly a bit of an audiophile, but I've heard much better from other (albeit more expensive) Bluetooth headsets. For phone calls, the audio is fine. Comfort is not a strong point. They feel a bit tight on the ears, and a bit harsh on top of your head (no padding), but they do stay in place. A good trade-off if you use them for exercise.Pros:1. Good price, good value2. Easy pairing.3. Plenty of functions, and they all work well with my iPhone 4S.4. Fold up nicely.5. Good battery life.6. I can jog with these, and they stay in place.Cons:1. Audio quality isn't very good for music, but quite acceptable for phone conversations.2. As others have stated, they feel a bit tight on your head after wearing them for even half an hour.3. There is no padding where the headphones sit on top of your head. This is a bit uncomfortable.
The iKross Foldable Wireless Bluetooth Stereo Headset has been working well the past couple of months.Good - battery life and quick charging. I have listened to these phones for over 7 hours continuously, so I know the battery last longer than that.Good - sensitivity, used at distances of more than 30 feed with no drop out or distortion.Good - recharging rate, although I have not timed the recharging, after listening for many hours, I have put the headphone on charge and when I returned after less than two hours the red light had already turned blue.Good - implementation of controls; easy to use and reliable. Sometimes when I go into the kitchen and use the Microwave, I can still use the controls to pause the audio even with all of the microwave interference.Good and easy pairing. I have paired my phones with my iPad, iPhone and iMac and switched between them with no problems.Personal opinions: Unusual fit, but got used to the feel quickly and there is no ear pain for me: sound is adequate but again not great: fit and finish is excellent.
