Easy to use and comfy headphones. They have a really long play time (18 hours) so don’t need charged often which can only be a bonus!! I must admit I haven’t really sweated while using them so can’t comment much on them being sweat proof - but it sounds promising. If I still commuted to work I’d be using these everyday on the train; they’d be perfect! Also looking forward to using them in our home gym once we’ve unpacked - they seem great for using on the cross trainer and rowing machine.

Style Like No Other!

These headphones remind you to enjoy music, where ever you are! The soft headband allows for long durations of playing music and the sweat proof aspect allows for no worries during workouts! The app is a blessing in disguise, as it helps with tips and even can track your headset if you lose them. AWESOME! Setting it up was easy, with the step to step guide included making life way easier than normal when it comes to setting it up. The controls are great because they control the phone, without touching the phone! As well as being light and sturdy. They also come with a 2 year guarantee, which gives me a peace of mind. I was astounded when I got 18 HOURS of music coming out of it with no problem, infact I've had them for a week and still I don't need to put them on charge!!! Even if it did run out, it only takes 90 minutes for it to come back to full charge. I find headphones annoying as the cable get tied up and then gets lost and I go ARRRRGGGG! But with this, I don't have to worry about any of that. My family's having a HUGE debate about who gets them. They're THAT good!!!!

Good sound quality, nice design and easy to use

Normally I'm very picky when it comes to audio equipment but I was quite surprised by these lightweight and slim on-ear headphones. My preference is over-ear or in-ear headphones however, after a while they tend to become uncomfortable, but these were extremely comfortable even after a considerable account of time worn. I have previously suffering with tension due to wearing tight fitting headphone but I didn't have that problem with these. They are remarkably simple to use and setup with a single button to activate the pairing. They can also be used for voice calls with the connected mobile device thanks to the built in microphone in the left ear cup. Call quality is perfectly fine although you can tell the wearer is not speaking directly into the microphone. I did find the music quality improved with the use of the wire rather than the wireless function however, that is the case with any such device and therefore the decision is largely based on convenience of being wireless. Overall ,I'm really happy with them for general use leisurely listening to music however, as I do some work with audio, I'm unlikely to use them in such capacity.

Great looking headphones!

These headphones are super comfy and lightweight – they are designed to be resilient to sweat or water and therefore will stay clean and look good. They have straightforward instructions and there is an app to support set up if required. They are Bluetooth enabled and so no wires which is great. You remain hands free and lead free! You can control the sound level and the track being played from the headphones themselves and set up and pairing was easy and straightforward. They look great as well – mine are black but I believe there are other colours from which to choose. Charging is done via a lead supplied (about 90 minutes as stated) and once charged the headphones will last for ages – supposedly 18 hours of wireless listening! Sound quality was really good and the device tells you if it is switched on or off which was useful to avoid running down charge. They also come supplied in a neat mesh bag which keeps them dust free. Overall I would recommend these headphones. Normally I find headphones heavy and restrictive with the leads but these were comfy and easy to use – my husband and I will be fighting over them!

Quality sound and smart look

I have 2 teenagers who love music, so they have told me these are great headphones. *The instructions are picture based but self explanatory *Quality, smart looking headphones that will suit a wide range of people with different requirements *Good at eliminating outside noise *Pairs / connects easily to music devices *Comes with transport bag, charger and aux lead *Aux lead good for movement and taller people, quality remains good when using aux lead or wireless *Quite compact headphones (not huge on your head) *Stays firmly on your head when exercising *lightweight *Good sound quality - no crackles *Good connection range so when exercising eg in the gym or at home you do not need your phone in your pocket * Bass is good All in all a good quality set of headphone that my teenagers would recommend
