Good: Sound quality, design, comfort
Bad: Bluetooth only works in line of sight
Comment: These headphones really do provide you with fantastic sound quality and I had no complaints on that front, but a couple of things ruined them for me.
Firstly I didn't realise when I bought them that they didn't have a built in microphone so cannot be used as a handsfree on phones, and lets face it, most bluetooth devices are still phones.
Secondly the bluetooth just doesn't work well enough for everyday use. As soon as I put my phone in my pocket the signal was lost and the music cut out. If I lent forward or put my phone in my hand then all was fine, but I have no intention of doing either thing all day long.
I have had bluetooth devices before (Jabra BT3030) and know there are limitations but I've never had such poor response.
These were sent back the same day.
