Sound quality is good. They are able to skip tracks, louder and softer, good base.
The ear pieces can be reliable interchanged and when recharging from a flat battery is within 1 hour to full charge.
The charged battery will last many months without discharge which is good when I decide to go out and take the train
all the features
these headphones are awesome. they have every feature you can think of. the sound quality is amazing. i love plenty of bass. track skip, rewind. pause and play. noise cancelling. quick connect bluetooth at a massive distance. small area mic to listen to whats happening around you. comfortable. the only thing is that they are rather large.
Great value for its performance
I bought mine on ebay for about $170 and the sound quality is as good as QC35's for half the price. The NC is not as powerful however, but it is still very noticeable and good enough for use on the plane. Comfort wise, I can wear these for a few hours no problem if upright but it's not very comfortable if you want to lay your head down sideways on a bed.

Value for money
My first active noise cancelling headphones. I have previously only used passive noise cancelling headphones and this is a gem. Packaging has a premium "feel" to it. Headphones felt a little bit on the heavy side and bands were not so kind on the ears the first few times, but eventually got used to them over time. However, at times, prolonged use resulted in some discomfort on the ears but still bearable. Sound quality is awesome and have not had issues with receiving calls. The automatic pause and resume function when you remove and put the he...adset back on is good, but could also sometimes be annoying. I used it to listen to recorded uni lectures on Echo360 and the function doesn't work. Windows Media Player (WMP) is the default program when paired with my computer and whenever I put the headphones down and back on again, it activates WMP automatically and starts playing the playlist. Other than that, I can't really fault it for the price. Strongly recommend.
As good as Bose
My husband bought it from JB Hifi, it is so comfortable and the sound is amazing. It has all the buttons on the side and the best part is that it automatically pauses when you take it off. Very convenient for taking it on the plane for a long flight as it has a 24hr battery. Better value than the Bose QC35.
Cheap, great sound but uncmfortable
Got it from eaby last year for $169 shipped.
Yes good sound quality/ nice bass/ great build quility/ cheap price, but i regretted.
The ear cups size ar much smaller then the average human ears, shorten length and not deep enough, more like an on-ear then over-ear, also with the high clamping force the pain started in just 20min of using.
Best gift idea
Really useful best gift for music lovers. No surprise that why this is one of the best selling headphones in the electronic market. I would definitely recommend it for students, professionals and housewives (especially to isolate from noisy environments, kids game areas and while cooking-hassle free, wireless). Best part of it is battery life.
great sound, excellent convenience
these headphones are great for blocking out background noise whilst listening to music/watching movies. however, use beyond 2 hrs would occasionally cause mild a headache due to the tension of the band between the ear cups. also, due to the size, could not really rest your head back (during flight/long travel on bus).
with that being said, the pro's of battery life was excellent (even using Bluetooth and noise cancelling) and convenience of being able to take calls, automatically pause music by removing headphones outweigh the cons.
Cheap and very good quality
I bought this product last year and I totally love it. The sound quality is so good. It provides you so many options, such as control volume, noise cancellation, picks up calls and disconnects calls all within the headset. The standby battery last over a month and 24 hours for continue listening.

Very nice sound!
This head phone is the second best compares to the Bose QC35.
It produces nice balanced sound with good bass.
You got the "premium product" feeling when unpack the package.
It is about half the price of the BOSE QC35.
Works well with Iphone, ipad & android (Nexus device), very good for air travelling.
I've tried the BOSE as well, the BOSE is more comfy after using for a long period of time and noice cancelling is a little better, that's all.

Cheap & Good Quality!
I bought from Officeworks eBay store when promotion, final price was around $180. Compared to similar Bose & Beats products, BackBeat Pro 2 is very cheap but similar quality.
Bass is good, noise cancellation is good as well. Easy to set up and easy to use. Long time battery life. Pretty good quality of the build. And it can pause movies and music when earphone removed from your ears or when you receive a phone call.
A very good headphone
I have had these headphones (backbeat pro 2) for six months. They are very good. Definitely in the top class of headphones. They have active noise cancellation. This works well. But it does not remove all external noise, only about 65%. This is still good. I was especially impressed by the bass. It is a very precise. Not muddy at all. I is very good for watching moves as it has a bluetooth connection. The explosions are impressive as is the silence. I can recommend this headphone wholeheartedly.
Very good & the price is coming down.
We have one set of these & two sets of the version 1.
These are more compact & can be worn in bed with more comfort. The hands free is better then version 1. I don't think the sound is as good as version 1 though. The controls are better then version 1 & easy to use. They feel lighter but not quite as comfortable. The noise cancelling is better.
Compared to Bose & Sony these are a bargain!
Budget Headphones with Top quality
Using this as im typing this. For this price, the qualities that the headphones have is aplenty. Noise cancellation is pretty good in some sense where it drowns out constant noises like aircon and heater. Its slightly heavier than the famous Bose however it does have a deeper bass to it. The only small flaw this has is the carry case which is soft. So if you like a hard case, you can go for the SE ones. Super comfy and the ears does not heat up over time.
A budget choice for high end wireless headphone
This is a feature rich headphone, comparing to boss quiet series, this headphone has a decent sound quality and heavier weight. The sound is a little bit earth-like, bass is best, voice is fair. I tried them with on board DAC, iphone 7 DAC and dragonfly red DAC, turns out a good DAC will enhance it's performance. Both iphone and motherboard shows weak separation and missing low bass and high pitch area, a good DAC will able to increase it's performance a lot.
This headphone has a long battery life, using it for days before it's battery drains out. The noise canceling features are weak and produce white noise. When using the mic, sound quality turns into potato, I suggest avoid using both at the same time.
I have upgraded from BackBeat Pro to BackBeat Pro 2 still very happy
I have used the original BackBeat Pro over 2 years now, recently got from a promotion of laptop purchase to the new version, it been about 2 months now, I am still very happy with the performance. It has a very good range so I can walk to kitchen or living room and still listen or talk over my headphone, and the battery performance is still great I only recharge the headphone once every week in everyday usage. so overall, I highly recommend this headphone to everyone, it may not have the best audio quality but other features like battery life, wireless distance, comfortable of wear are very great.
So light and comfy
These were a great purchase - super comfy and light. They deliver great sound and i've really enjoyed using them. No issues so far.
I thouht they were really very reasonable for the price point, as i got them on sales for nearly half off. I was considering buying them at full price, which would still have been worth it in my opinion.
Stylish look too
Great pair of wireless noise cancelling headphones, without paying the world.
If you're an infrequent traveler who wants noise cancelling headphones who wants to be able to fly without the usual disturbances associated with flying, i'd say these are definitely worth an investment. you can obviously use them anywhere else that you wish to cancel out the noisy intrusions of the world too
they cancel out the sound well (though not perfectly), have great battery life, sound pretty good to my ears (for both music and movies) and are quite comfortable. the convenience of not having wires to get tangled cannot be understated...and you learn to appreciate it more, once you start using it. other features that are great are the fact that it will automagically pause the music once you take them off your head (and resume once you put them back on). im pretty sure you can still use the headphones even though the battery runs out (i havent had the need to test this as the battery has never run out of my while ive been on the go!). plus you can also flick a switch and which will allow the external world to flood back in, so you can hear whats going on without having to remove your headphones. the overall sound quality is great (and good enough for me), with (i feel) an more of an emphasis on the lower end (read bassy). the only thing that i had a (small issue) with at first was the colour, brown isnt usually my first choice. but for my use and purposes, i can definitely say that overall, im happy with the purchase. it also comes with a protective soft pouch in the box too, so that was a plus.
Never go back to conventional in-ear phones
It has amazing sound and the ability to turn on and off noise cancelling is great. They're super comfy and look surprisingly sleek. The finish makes them look "Grown Up". I cant compare them to other over ear phones as this is my first pair, although the sound quality and ability to noise cancel blows in-ears out of the water.

Money well spent.
Used it for about 3 months now. I can say, it had definitely been reformed from its previous model. This model offers much more functionality, more comfort for the ears, and very easy to use. Its bluetooth aspect makes it perfect as its connection is one of the best. Recommended buy!
