_
"Feels a bit flimsy but the audio is pretty good."
_
"the had an amazing sound, but after 2 weeks of use, two of them started to fail....They connect and pair with my devices, but when you are listening to something, they just go to mute for some seconds, or the audio starts to fail, sometimes they sound like slow motions videos, sometimes like when you have poor signal.. the worst is when they have a lag of about 2-3 seconds or more!"
_
"While they connected easily, unfortunately, this pair has audio lag issues."
_
"The problem is that it doesn't take much to disrupt the audio, which adds a delay to the audio."

Button

Button:
"They only negative is the buttons are not in intuitive locations so it gets a little confusing, but you get used to it."
_
"I have had a couple of pairs have their power button broken because they were pressed down too roughly."
_
"No amount of troubleshooting ended up getting these headphones to completely work again, I did strip off the outer shell and was able to press the hardware button inside, but eventually even that broke."
_
"The most fragile and important and mostly used button and function on these headphones is that power button, if that power button breaks on you, as things are broken and are worthless, so don't break that power button, push it as gently as you can to get them to work, and make this a habit and they will last a long time."
_
"I like the nice, large play pause button."
_
"The position of the buttons is a bit awkward but easy to get used to."
_

Comfortable

Comfortable:
"Sound is not as great as I expected and not as comfortable as I thought it would but not a bad product for the price"
_
"Feels like Lego buttons).- IMO looks terrible (the ear pieces are much bigger than the picture portrays).- Not comfortable on the ears, a bit painful."
_
"The only reason I give this two stars instead of one is because these are actually great headphones, I would give them five, but I unfortunately no longer feel comfortable using them."
_
"On the downside, they are not very comfortable and they only worked from October to February."
_
"Not comfortable at all falls out of place and it's no user friendly for that reason."
_
"However, they are not expandable and too snug for my head to allow a good seal and be comfortable at the same time making the sound weak and leaving them prone to falling off when walking around."
_
"com NewRice-Bluetooth-Transmitter-Headphones-Simultaneously dp B00WEKDB78 Easy to set-up and comfortable."
_
"It's comfortable, easy to pair, gets relatively loud (but pumps the brakes before distortion), and has a microphone that is crystal clear."

Control

Control:
"pros- crazy cheap- sound was ok, some noise reductionscons - only the middle button worked , the volume and track control buttons did nothing- made weird beeping sounds randomly for no reason that would come and go- only lasted 4 months with moderate use."
_
"I don't like the controls and I often hit an incorrect button when trying to pause my book or turn up the volume on what I'm listening to."
_
"horrible quality and control, sad thing is I think soundbot is aware of this."
_
"The only slight negative is that the control side headphone (the one with the nav buttons) is a little loose so I can hear the plastic rattle a little bit sometimes when I shake my head with them on but this is such a slight uncommon thing that they beat out any headsets I've seen in quality and definitely in value."
_
"Plus controls on side did not respond very well, I had to double press them."
_
"The pairing works pretty easily, and the buttons on the earpiece make it easy to control music, but the sound quality on these isn't great."
_
"Also, I think the controls on the headphones are nice."
_
"The sound quality is great, and the controls are easy to use."
_
"The good: if I didn't have my music control issue, I would rate this headset 5 stars."
_
"The controls are easier to get to and the bass is deeper."

Cover

Cover:
"The cover for the recharging port is a bit flimsy but if you aren't an animal about opening and closing, it should hold up indefinitely."
_
"(3) The ear muffs don't cover your whole ear so uncomfortable."
_
"The other complain I have is the size of of this headset, either I have a really big head or this headset is made for someone who has a really small head, cause it doesn't fit comfortably over head, I have to push the back of the headset really hard to get the earpiece to actually cover my ears, and when it move it starts to fall off, I guess it is one of those things you would need to break in with prolong use, I haven't use headset on a hike yet, will be trying that next, and if the problem presist I will most likely return it."
_
"The bluetooth function works fine for these headphones, but they are small, don't cover the ear, and are uncomfortable."
_
"Type of music:- Chill relax, Jazz, house, electronic dance musicPros:- Cheap for $17- Receives phone call- Doesn't distort or create statics at high volume- Does filter out noise from outside (but people can hear your music at high volume)- Battery lasts decent amount of time (Didn't test straight 20 hours but managed to play at least 5 hours out of the box and I wasn't able to drain it completely)Con:- I wish it covers entire ear- Doesn't shake your ears but is clear enough for my usage- It feels a bit tight hanging on my neck while not in use- Long usage might create discomfort ( But no problem for me for 3+ hours of usage)I'd say it's worth 5 starts at $17 but not $35."
_
"Great for talking in car, covers road noise and sounds from inside car."
_
"The ear pads cover the ears well enough."
_
"It would be nice if there was adjustability so they could cover the ears."
_
"The sound quality is good and the Bluetooth covers a reasonable distance."
_
"I was able to get the cover button off of it, but the mechanical inside still stuck."

_
"I am still able to make good use of these and find myself using them frequently to listen to things while working around the house despite it taking a little work to get a comfortable fit with my glasses."

Functionality

Functionality:
"so if you're spending $19.99 on a pair of bluetooth headphones with mic capability, quick access buttons and full functionality, you probably shouldnt be complaining about the sound quality."

Instruction:
"I took one star off for the initial hiccup and the fact that the instructions dont tell you how to turn it off!"
_
"I wear glasses and these headphones feel fine--They fold up easily and fit into a jacket pocket--They are inexpensive, so are worth the risk for a first Bluetooth headsetCons:--The headset feels flimsy, but maybe that's part of why it's so lightweight--The instruction sheet that came with my set has missing parts, as if several lines in a row just didn't print (and the font is seriously tiny)."

Microphone:
"The mic isn't that great but it isn't the worst I've heard either."

_
"The mic also does not work very well, people on the other side of the call might not be able to hear you in a noisy environment."
_
"The only complaint I have is that the mic (even with software installed) only works on mono in the sound setup on desktops and I have to continuously switch the mic sources for it to work properly."

_
"These wireless headphones drown out all noise, perfect for the gym when you don't want to hear their horrible music they're playing over their system, you can buy way better quality noise reduction headphones, but for the price and for how much I sweat these work perfect for me."

_
"My only complaint is that people around me can easily hear the music, making it not so ideal in an office setting."

Power:
"I have broken the power button on two pairs of these."
_
"I have had a couple of pairs have their power button broken because they were pressed down too roughly."

_
"Their battery has never run out (I've gone on 14 1.5 hour runs before deciding to recharge them).The only thing that comes close to a flaw with them is that their power connector is really finicky, that could be a problem down the road."
_
"These Headphones are okay but don't use for exercise I used them once & they were damaged there was no more volume power the sound was much lower needles to say they are definitely not sweat proof but there good for other uses."
_
"So like I mentioned at the beginning of this review, try to go very easy on that power button so that you can get the most life out of these headphones without breaking them."
_
"After initial charge, when I went to pair these with my phone is when I realized that the power (multi-function) button was not working or broken."
_
"They worked great while plugged in but even after an additional 3 hours on power (and turned back off) they would still not hold a charge, As far as I can tell the battery must be disconnected internally or something else is wrong but I am going to have to try and get these swapped."
_
"Every time I power them up they connect perfectly to paired device."
_
"The sound came in pulses and when I power down and back on, sometimes it would connect seamlessly for 20 seconds then go back to pulsing."

Size

Size:

Speaker

Speaker:
"However, what can you honestly expect for $15 dollars besides a few months of fair speaker quality, unimpressive then ultimately failing basic functioning, and a Daft Punk-esque wireless, glowy accessory?"
_
"Left Speaker was Buzzy at loud volume, and Buttons failed first day, Returned after less than an 2 hours use..."
_
"SoundBot SB240 Kermes head phone Bluetooth outgoing speaker not good......"
_
"confirmed that the headphones are at fault by playing everything over speakers, which worked as well as always."
_
"head set is way to small and was poorly made, one of the speakers was dead right out of the box."
_
"I also tested my phone to a different Bluetooth speaker (Bose SoundLink Mini) to confirm that my phone was NOT the culprit, and unfortunately for the headphones, my phone and the Bose speaker worked like a charm."
_
"Too bad the microphone cant be heard by anyone I called on the phone, and the speakers produce a sound so tinny as to hurt my love of music."
_
"Nice set of speakers great sound quality and easy to pair I have them set up to my phone & TV I think overall great deal for the price"
_
"If I want to hear anything, I have to carry my phone within about 18 inches of the headphones; this defeats the purpose of mobile headphones, as I can just as easily run the audio through the phone's speaker for the same effect."
_
"confirmed that the headphones are at fault by playing everything over speakers, which worked as well as always."
