This amazing headset, is my transit companion, everyday since it arrived here.

It has a pretty good noise cancellation/isolation, and has good balance between bass and treble (not that bass overdose that some phones makers says that is quality).

It's super confortable to use for an entire workday. It's what I've done actually today using it in transit to the work, from there to house, and while I was working.

Battery is another plus, it run at least, 10 hours without problems, the disadvantage is that you certainly will not remember to recharge it everyday, and the specific charger connector, is not as convenient as a USB one, that you can find easily nowadays.

It look not so strong, but I dropped it a couple of times and it resisted perfectly.

Overall is an AMAZING PRODUCT!!!

I am very pleased to have these headphones perform to my expectations. I was skeptical, being a music enthusiast, about A2DP compression and frequency response, but that proved to not be a issue for me. True audiophiles will still require wires though--there is a compress/decompress delay of approx. 180-190 milliseconds on my machine (Windows 7, lean). Linux is even less; not even noticable. This is just a warning to those who might do audio/video editing. Advanced media players can timeshift audio, no worries.

Windows 7 does not provide A2DP drivers. The most common driver you will have to Google is by Widcomm/Broadcomm--something like that. Read through forums to figure it out. Linux Mint picked up on it out of the box. Windows is still temperamental with it, but ... Windows is temperamental and I'm a super user.

Will help to be IT savvy for any Bluetooth audio products at this stage. I gave full 'ease of use' rating because it's not the headphones causing complications.

Charge time is quick--maybe 40 mins. Last me several days @ several hours constant use per day. No complaints here.

Whilst it might seem ridiculous to spend AUD$200 on a pair of headphones, if you're serious about taking your music around with you everyday this is a really great product.

The design won't be for anyone, I had long hair when I first bought it which hides the fact that the ear cups poke about about an inch from your head. But now that I have a shaved head they can look a little silly, but I'm not too bothered about that.

Bass response and sound quality are good. They're not high-end audiophile 'phones but I'm fairly picky about the music the quality of music I listen to, and this products suites me fine.

While the call quality is fine, it's pretty much impossible to take a call on a windy day outside. Though I only really use this for making Skype calls through my mobile or laptop.

Pairing is pretty easy, I've had to reset the pairing settings a few times when I had Eclair (the OS not he dessert) on my Android phone. But since installing Froyo there's be no issues. It works works well with the DoubleTwist app on my HTC Desire thought if I could change anything it would be to speed up the slight (half a second) delay in starting up and skipping tracks.

The charger indicator (3 flashing lights for full, 1 for nearly empty) would have worked better on scale of 4 (4 for full, 3 for nearly full, 2 for "you should charge it tonight", 1 for nearly empty). I use my headphones on my walk to work, for about half of my working day, the walk back home, at the gym, on the phone in the evening etc and the battery lasts about 3 days, which I think is very good!

Basically, until something better comes along I'd definitely recommend this product.

The rewiews for these headphones are all over the place but I found them to work great and have great sound. I use the headphones with my BlackBerry Storm 2 and have had great results with both music and the phone. I will order a second pair for my wifes iPod Touch. I was concerned with reception distance as most bluetooth device have about a 3 foot range. I tested the headphones to 40 feet before they dropped signal, 30 feet through one wall. The headband is plastic but I don't see any problem as long as they are not abused.
