Headphone

Headphone:
"If you're looking for very high quality, durable headphones that won't break the bank, I can't recommend these highly enough."
_
"If you have Bluetooth paired with a source and you then hardwire into that source the headphones do seem to get confused about which source they should project."
_
"Here are the problems:Once the cover of the headphone drops off, and it is super difficult put it on.....The button on the right side is too loose, if you are moving around, it will make some noise."
_
"The biggest complaint I have had about headphones I find that do fit well is that the sound is really low and the audio isn't great."
_
"They have given me the opportunity to exchange these but I really don't think it's a headphone specific problem although it may be a compatibility issue with whatever Apple is using."
_
"The only other over ear headphones I own are the Bombora, and I was never too happy with them, so they now sit in my closet."
_
"I have a large varied music collection and these headphones have performed well in bringing out the proper sounds for each genre."
_
"These headphones are every bit as good as high priced sets from Bose, Beats or Sony."
_
"But otherwise, these are perfect, and that really isn't a negative point since over-ear headphones are better than in-ear in some situations."
_
"Comfort: I have aa fairly big head, so it's hard for me to find headphones that fit well."
_
"These headphones sound just as good as ones that cost 4-5 times more, if not even better."

Noise

Noise:

Price

Price:
"Button feels cheap and inconsistent when pressed from different angles."
_
"I needed something that will be durable enough to commute with and take the abuse from the hustle and bustle of NYC public transportation, but at a price point where damage and theft would not break my heart."
_
"But we are talking BOSE quality...NOBODY is going to be able to match their sound quality at this price point, IMO...for the price of the Omni's...I'm very much in my happy place and I won't go on a 3-day bender if I loose them (unlike the Bose).ps, I very rarely give 5 stars...like, the aforementioned Bose quality at this price point would be needed...so I'm not really marking JLab down for anything...just the way I score is ... 'sharper' than most, one might say."
_
"Sound Quality is very good for the price - I've not been disappointed with them on this score at all."
_
"So you're looking at this and you say to yourself wow those look okay, they could be nice, and they're cheap!"

"I just got the most awaited headphones, the sound quality and noise reduction was very good, and I say WAS, because when I tried lower the volume I was able to, but now I am unable to increase the volume, it doesn't matter for how long I hold the wheel, so right now they are pretty much useless, now about returning them for a new pair, that is out of question since I am abroad right nowAfter a few emails with their warranty department I just got a great customer service experience, so far the best I've ever had, I will get new headsets under very special circumstances and I really appreciate the effort they are making to satisfy a customer, highly recommended"
