This pair was a compromise: reasonable price, good reviews. When I opened the package, my reaction was, literally: "wow"! A very sturdy pair (yes, I've already managed to drop it a few times, and they work just fine), such a good quality I have not expected for the price.
What I love about this headphones:
- So comfortable to wear! I don't feel it around my neck whole day! I don't freak out about losing them, leaving them somewhere, don't worry about finding a pocket to put an earpiece into, when I am not listening...total peace of mind! I will absolutely stick to this design from now on.
- Battery life is incredible. Compared to other pairs I had to charge throughout the day, this pair goes on and on and on. 8 hour day - easily. Charge it and forget it.
- And THE BEST THING about this headphones is BUTTONS!!!! Yes, sounds silly, I know, but when your hands are full, you are on the move, and can't find a "pause" button because they are all tiny and feel the same to the touch, it's not funny. Or when you dial someone up instead of starting an audiobook, for the same reason, it's not funny. With these headphones, all buttons have different size and shape, even operation mode, and located far enough from each other. Absolutely love it and very grateful to the designers for that. I don't stress anymore, I don't have to take the thing out of my ear, I don't have to stop whatever I am doing to just press "pause". Bliss.
Have had these for about ten days, using them every day, for many hours. My absolute favorite. If they last long enough, I will be buying the same pair again.
