Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Adapter

Adapter:
"I tried two different bluetooth adapters on my computer, just in case it was a problem with the PC side, but it made no difference."
_
"They work amazingly with my computer (I had also received a USB Bluetooth adapter), and decently for my phone (it was hard to get the on-headphone buttons to cooperate, but I'm blaming that more on my old phone than I am on the headphones).My only complaint is that, when making calls on a computer with these on, the audio quality for anything beyond the Skype call drops noticeably."
_
"The drivers you can download on the Kinivo site (even though they are for their own Bluetooth adapter) fixed his audio problem for his integrated Bluetooth adapter."
_
"Search amazon for item # B004LNXO28 if you need a good low cost adapter."
_
"I can get a fairly nice perimeter on a .5 acre lot with the Kinivo BT adapter, so maybe it has some more oomph."
_
"I had also purchased a Kinivo BT USB adapter for my laptop so now I can sync up to that as well."
_
"The sound was good, they worked well with my Bluetooth adapter, and the price was right."
_
"initially, i was very unhappy to find the audio choppy and full of blips, but this was easily corrected by moving the bluetooth adapter from the back of my tower up to the front top port - i'm not sure if this was a range issue with the adapter or the headset...the audio quality for listening is really very good (and i'm somewhat of an audiophile)."

"Ive never owned a bluetooth device of ANY kind b4, as Ive simply had nousecfor one, but when my headphone jack on my LG Escape broke, and I can only hear out of my right headphone, I had to purchase a pair of Bluetooth wireless headphones, as I did not want to send my phone in to be repaired because I knew it would take too long, so I didn't think these headphones would be of any high-quality, but I was very pleasantly surprised!"

Cover

Cover:

_
"There are two downsides to this product:1: It is too small to cover my ear so outside sounds can interfere with my listening.2."

_
"The little plastic cover for the charging port eventually broke off after about a year, but it doesn't seem to matter."

Distortion

Distortion:
"My one disappointment is that there is annoying distortion much of the time."
_
"Sound is good, no distortion, comfortable."

"At first, I was completely dissatisfied with the headphones: too much distortion, even at very low volume."
_
"The bass just drops out at unacceptable levels to me to listen to without being noticeably distorted (and I wouldn't call myself the pickiest audiophile in the world).Second function, I'm running a galaxy s3 (sgh-t999) on cm 11, and I've also tried this on an s3 from verizon running the stock rom and I constantly have to restart the headset when I pause music from spotify."

"I can listen to my music loud with no distortion and it was easy to pair them to my ipad and my android phone."

_
"They have a lot more low end and distort easily."

Kindle

Kindle:
"I was able to sync with both my iphone and kindle and works great on both and was easy to connect."
_
"The second black pair ended up staying with my parents after Christmas vacation when my mom discovered they were much more comfortable than what she was trying to use with her Kindle."

"They were very easy to set up and tear with my Kindle Fire HD."
_
"I take my shopping seriously because I don't have the money to waste buying more than 1 or 2 of something I need till I finally find the one that's just right ,so I really appreciate those people who take the time to give honest feedback but we are different people, can have many different needs and expectations .So I finally narrowed it down to two Bluetooth headsets and one was the Kinivo limited edition Bluetooth stereo.....I personally was looking for ones that had good sound quality, simple to pair use with my all my kindle devices and Samsung phone, lightweight, comfortable to wear all day (like hardly notice they're there comfortable) and can't be the kind that goes in your ear because my right ear was injured and even those soft earplugs cause my right ear to hurt but I didn't want the full over the head headphones either."

"And I am able to listen music without any problems and a medium volume level."
_
"The only reason they get a 4 is because of the slight rattle of the buttons and time I had to spend getting them to my comfort level."
_
"I've an expensive pair of Bose Bluetooth headphones and these are, on an audio performance level, as good as the Bose Headphones... and for a tenth of the price of the Bose."
_
"Third, wish I could increase the volume to greater levels and increase the bass but when you're spending minimum amounts of money on Bluetooth headphones you can't expect all the bells and whistles."
_
"If you want ultra high audio quality these probably aren't going to be your best option, but at this price level you can't complain."

"* They're comfortable enough but the plastic that goes over the ears are a LITTLE uncomfortable after a while."
_
"They also compete for behind-the-ear space with my glasses, but I have thick plastic frames, so for most people I don't think it would be a problem."
_
"It would have been nice if that part was a softer, more giving plastic or maybe jell like or padded cushion."

Power

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."
_
"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."
_
"The first thing that went wrong was that the support behind the power button caved in, so that the button was always depressed."
_
"The problem continued until the headphones would not power up unless they were connected to a power source."
_
"- Power button switch should have a texture so it's easier distinguished by touch."
_
"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."
_
"The company logo has a power sign in it but as long as you don't mistake that for a power button the setup is easy."
_
"The controls are standard, connect power button is intuitive enough, and has decent longevity, at least 6 hours."
