Lem

Pros:
- comfort - very light and adjustable;
- battery life - I use it in the office and with BT and ANC on, the battery lasts for two - two and a half days - so over 20 hours in total;
- good ANC, can't compare with others, but it does the job for me and cancels around 80-90% of ambient noise in the office;
- good sound quality over BT;
- good microphone quality;

Cons:
- very annoying "recharge your phone" message every 5 minutes though all 3 hours of charging the headset, the only remedy is to turn off all messages via CapTune;
- some issues when pairing with multiple devices, sometimes i have to do it manually;
- occasio...view more

Wow

I bought these about 2 weeks ago, when my wife saw the invoice she asked if they were gold-plated... All I can say is they are worth every cent. There is a bit of a learning curve operating the headphones - it was well worth printing out the manual, but they work better than I could have expected. Then main reason for the purchase was to use when making/receiving phone calls, and given the lack of mic boom I was dubious of the sound quality (I took the sales person's word for it but wasn't entirely convinced), but I am impressed - people I am calling can hear me clearly and understand every word. Sound quality is great and the set is...view more

Best headphones for all a

Headphones are super comfortable with amazing sound quality and great design. Touch controls are smooth and work well. Very portable and lightweight meaning you can take this anywhere. Overall great all around headphones especially for everyday use . One downside is that it takes a couple of seconds to switch from noise cancelling to the hearing and talking feature.

Great headphones, just one minor issue

I had a great experience of using these headphones since last few weeks! Headphones have natural sound and great to hear crisp clear vocals. I'm blown away by the features this device offers, the feather touch controls, turn on/off system and much more.

Just one minor drawback, which can be annoying if the feature is turned on - SMART PAUSE! I don't know if someone else gas faced similar issue but when smart pause is turned on, for some reason when I'm on call the call goes on hold! Also occasionally when I lean my head forward, music pauses - which honestly can be annoying! So I've turned off the feature.
