Sounds good, but the cushion cup material is not good quality. After maybe 50 uses, I can see the vinyl shedding. I have 6-7 year old Jabra Revos that still look good with no wear and tear from countless uses.
DailySteals has had these for sale for cheaper since 6-5-2019, New Open Box.

There are so many BETTER wireless headphones.

These sound pretty good, but my wife always complains that they become painful on her ears after a while (due to the ear pads, not the volume).
They’re garbage in my opinion. The last link I provided will give plenty of better options.
I paid $50 for the Anker Soundcore Life 2. Super comfortable on the ears. I use AD700X and SHP9500 headphones for the PC if that gives you an idea of what I consider comfortable. Overall I am very pleased with them and their “30 hours” of battery life.
I work around very loud equipment in which I can’t have wires but needs hearing protection or I’d go insane. The Soundcore for $50 can’t really get beat. If they can, I’d love to try it! I bought a pair for my father for fathers day so he can listen to his kindle while walking the dog and such.
It’s difficult to imagine paying more than say $20 for a set of head phones. I really don’t understand the pricing of things like this.
Not understanding it means you’re sane. These aren’t even in the ballpark price range for their performance.
For $20 you can get bluetooth headphones with limited range, crap noise cancellation, crap call quality, crap music quality but you will certainly have headphones that are wireless worth their price tag.
When you spend $50+ish dollars, you can get quality sound, quality call quality, 25+ hours of battery life on a charge, noise cancellation, carrying case, 3.5mm jack for plugging in to get off bluetooth.
Spending $200+ on the Sony or Bose headphones is when you start hitting the high quality sound with high quality noise cancellation.
Personally the price for performance (bang for your buck) between $50 and $200 doesn’t make spending $200 worth it for me. With that being said, I’ll easily drop $100+ on open back headphones with good quality sound.
RTINGS does a great job comparing them, and the fact that the top end can’t break an 8.0 rating in any category leaves a lot to be desired. When the $50 headphones is barely getting lower ratings.
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07H96Y819/ <- what I used for work/audible. Currently 49.99 which is historic low. Average price is $62.00.
https://www.rtings.com/headphones/reviews/anker/soundcore-life-2-wireless <- this is it’s review. Don’t expect amazing bass but for a wireless headphone it’s pretty impressive compared to others I’ve tried.
There are “commercial” and “high grade” headphones. Spend some time with that concept. If you can buy it off the shelf at Wally-World, it’s commercial grade…made for the average uninformed user. Works for most other products as well.
I’ve always been a Bose person if it means investing more than a $100 on a pair of headphones. And most Bose’s have cheap 3rd party replaceable cushions available. I replaced both my OE2 and QC35’s.
Additionally, any headphones marketed to gamers will include a microphone and be 1 /10th the sound quality of similarly priced headphones. Better to buy $40 Samson Headphones and a cheap mic than to buy $100-200 Steel Series, Razer, Kingston, Corsair, HyperX, Logitech etc.
I bought a pair of Aiwa Arc-1 headphones a couple of weeks ago. yes Aiwa, they are coming back. They cost me a little over 100$ and there is no comparison. I have tested these headphones out and the sound quality while good doesnt hold a candle to these Aiwa’s I got.
$12 headphone in a $100 box.
