Incredible sound quality

These are the greatest headphones I've ever owned. The sound quality dwarfs all other pairs of headphones and earbuds I've ever had. It makes music sound way better. The only problems I've ever really had is what I'm currently facing, which is the ear pieces falling apart. These headphones served their time and served it well. It's time for a new pair. For how much I paid for it, it's very well worth it's price. It's pretty comfortable, but the headband could've used some suppression. If you want good sound, buy these.

Pros

  • Amazing sound quality
  • Good pricing
  • Portable
  • Easy to connect
  • Good features
  • Noise canceling works well
  • Incredible battery life
  • Fast charging
  • Generally comfortable

Cons

  • Wears harshly without an easy fix
  • Headband is slightly uncomfortable
