Mute not working
Sound quality is ok.
Distance is awesome.
People complain about not being able to hear me very well.
Mute button does not work with Zoom.
I expected the Mute button to work, which is really disappointing.

These headphones are just OK.
Pros - good sound, good battery life, quick charge, comfortable
Cons - I listen to a lot of audio books and the audio seems to stutter and cut in and out a lot which is super annoying. I've already returned one pair to JB Hifi for this reason but the replacement pair also do it. I don't find the Bluetooth range to be as advertised. I go ten metres out the back of my house to hang washing and the headphones can't cope. Same with going upstairs if my device is downstairs They stutter and break up and cut out.

Good with a few faults
They are pretty smart headset, knows when you take them off to instantly mutes the call, or if paying music, pauses it. There are more great features too. But a few negatives are; the voice of the British lady warning you about the battery being low is extremely loud and unfortunately there isn't a way to control that, getting a huge shock when you're listening to meditative music, etc.
The second negative, after 2 years of very careful wearing on a few occasions per week and very rarely beyond an hour where you could argue sweat or something caused the issue.. the imitation leather muffs have started to tear away. Bit annoying but it seems you can replace them for about 20 bucks.

Got these for international travel. The noise cancelling is fantastic, and helps me arrive at my destination much more energised. I use them in terminals too and they do a great job even without anything playing. Love how they stop and start playing when you put them on/off your head.
I don't bother taking on the phone with them, but call quality seems quite good. My only cons are that they can feel hot and uncomfortable with extended use, and the fact they don't come in a hard case.

I use these headphones to listen to music and stream tv/movies via my laptop. Headphones were very easy to connect to my laptop and samsung galaxy s9.
Prior to these I owned the blueant pumpzone over ear headphones, so will compare to those.
The cost of these was double what I paid for the blueant.
The wireless range on these is greater than the blueant.
Build of these in my opinion is much better. They feel a lot sturdier.
The ear cups however are smaller and more shallow than the blueant. I don't have large ears and find that I have to t...

Great but a bit buggy
The headphones are great. The sound quality is amazing and the noise cancelling is good. However, they disconnect from my phone and they do cut out quite often. Overall an okay product.
Purchased in April 2018.
Excellent headphones. Great value.
I normally use them for video games and watching movies. Excellent quality. A little heavy. Gets a little warm when using for over an hour. Not suitable for physical activities. Very satisfied with the sound volume and wireless range.

Best value for money headphones
It doesn't cost you an arm and a leg to buy this Noise cancelling headphones. I usually listen to music and television series like game of thrones using this headphone. You could really feel the each and every drop of sound using this. Was very satisfied until I used it for 1.5 years and then the sound started to leak out. Especially because I listen in high volumes, it became annoying to use in public places. Other than this issue, everything was alright. I have recently returned it to the store. Now I miss it very much.

excellent battery life, good sound quality
I bought these head phone for the commute to work on the train and for the odd flight interstate for business. The connect to my PC and Phone at the same time allowing me to listen to music and answer calls at the same time. The microphone is sufficient for short calls while commuting, but is not the best for longer calls or conference calls when working from home. ( for that I have a dedicated headset). Noise cancellation if fairly good also, but the headphones are bulky
Good sound quality but definitely not in the league of Bose, Beats etc
This is a good product and brings good value for money. The sound quality is good and the wireless range is pretty decent. The sound block is pretty good too and well worth the money. What sucks is that the listening ear piece can't be fully twisted like the Bose headphones.
works under warranty then falls apart
coming up to 18 months now and it is not designed to last more than that. Started malfunctioning just after warranty period with volume not responding and other buggy issues. Firmware ug may have fixed some of these issues. fabric on the ear surrounds came unstitched/unglued at the same time on both ears and had to be hand stitched. Will buy a bose next time. Worked ok while under warranty.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Great sound quality and extra features especially for its price point. Very comfortable on your ears. Noise cancelling great feature but still doesn't drown out all the excess noise in a busy office space but surprisingly worked well for that purpose in a gym with loud external music. Battery life is excellent. Paid $250 on special.
