" ...  The ear cups are large and comfortable.  ...  "

comment
" ...  The Bluetooth worked as well as expected and the added 3.5mm cord is nice to have. ... They fold up and fit nicely in my bag but I keep them in the case they came with because it’s a pretty sweet case.  ...  "

" ...  They fit nicely over my ears which is a major plus for me.  ...  "
comment
" ...  They honor their warranties with no questions asked, which is how I got my hands on this incredible pair of headphones. ... Right out of the box, these feel like a solidly made pair of headphones. ... They create a very nice, comfortable seal which I would say drowns out almost all of the background noise.  ...  "

comment
" ...  These are probably the most comfortable over ear headphones I own, I can wear these for hours on end without discomfort. ... - The cups being so soft and comfortable I'm curious how long they will last being compressed so much.  ...  "

" ...  A few weeks ago the cushion on the headband started to separate from the rest of the headband so I contacted support.  ...  "
comment
" ...  They fit better, look better, feel less flimsy, sound the same, and come with a hard shell case, rather than a thin little bag.  ...  "
comment
" ...  The build quality and comfort is solid and lightweight compared to BOSE.  ...  "
comment
" ...  The padding is incredibly plush, but it clamps a little tight on the head for the first few wears.  ...  "

" ...  All of my music sounds crystal clear, there are no distortions with the volume at full tilt & call quality is just as good.  ...  "
comment
" ...  Soundcore sounds deeper and fuller.  ...  "
comment
" ...  Even without active noise cancellation they do a great job isolating you from the outside world. ... I think these blow the Mpow H5 out of the water even without the active noise cancellation.  ...  "
comment
" ...  I used them mostly on the lowest volume level which probably is why it lasts so long for me.  ...  "
comment
" ...  The sound quality is really impressive, I don't know if they are officially noise cancelling but I don't hear too much of the outside world when I wear them.  ...  "
comment
" ...  And not so good sound isolation, so music you listen to at 70 - 80% of volume, may be heard by someone nearby  ...  "

comment
" ...  I would appreciate having separate buttons for those functions.  ...  "
comment
" ...  The on-off and volume buttons are simple and direct, but they are low profile and take some practice to locate quickly.  ...  "
comment
" ...  And the buttons are easier to get used to also.  ...  "
comment
" ...  Good phone call quality too.  ...  "
comment
" ...  I have an open office with noisy neighbors, and was excited by their excellent sound drowning and the wired mic to use for video calls.  ...  "

comment
" ...  Instructions are as unclear as the function of the buttons on the headphone.  ...  "
comment
" ...  If I'm to name a con, it's that the on/off button and volume buttons are a little thin and hard to feel when you're wearing the headphones.  ...  "
comment
" ...  If there was one thing I would complain about its the button placement. ... They put the buttons on the small rim of the cup instead of the flat outside part. ... I still don't like them because the volume buttons are too close together. ... This would have been much better if they were in the flat part where its easy to distinguish which button is which.  ...  "
comment
" ...  The power button is non-functional.  ...  "
comment
" ...  my only complaint is I don't like how you have to hold the power button to turn them on and off I would have preferred sliding on/off button very minor and not a dealbreaker  ...  "
