Efficient, comfortable, and great sound (from a non-audiophile)
Quite simply, these are amazing little Bluetooth earphones.
Generally I try to avoid hi-tech gizmos as I am far from tech-savvy. I prefer straight meat-and-potatoes products and value reliability over high-end performance (as long as the quality is reasonable). Most of my earphone listening is for workouts or travel, and I listen to a lot of podcasts rather than rocking out to tunes. But even my uninformed ears tell me that these earphones provide an extremely high-quality sound that far surpasses my regular 'wired' workout earphones.
The Bluetooth pairing could not be easier. Just charge the earphones using the handy enclosed charger and follow the simple instructions and you are up and running #literally#. I was connected to my phone wirelessly within two minutes of starting the process - on the first try. As anyone who has seen me wrestle with electronics can tell you, that's a minor miracle right there.
The only other issue is how well the earphones work as intended - the whole point for wireless earphones is to allow for more freedom of movement. Here, the earphones are a star. The phones come with two different 'attachments' for hooking onto your ear, and while I prefer the larger loop-around-the-ear form, the earphones also come with those little doo-dads that fit inside your ear. The other issue is purely personal preference - you've got the little connector banging away on the back of your neck while you work out. Either you can ignore that or you can't - this product is extremely lightweight, so I am not reporting any personal issues with that aspect. It's greatly preferred to those instances where I've yanked my wired earphones either out of my ear or out of my phone because I've snagged the wire somewhere.
All in all, a slightly pricey product, but high-performing. Highly recommended.
