You get the LD-9210 headset, a USB charging cable, and a USB wall adapter that's rated at 5V 500mA (+-30mA). There's also a small booklet that offers instructions in English only.
The headset looks decent, but feels very cheap. The earpieces swivel and pivot around without any resistance, and the plastic feels like the kind that you could break very easily. For the price though, I don't think it's that bad.
The sound quality is actually pretty good, and the bass is very impressive from a pair of wireless, inexpensive headphones. However, my pair hisses and buzzes whenever the Bluetooth connection is active, with the noise being more noticeable on the right side. This hissing and buzzing becomes a lot less noticeable once I start playing music, but it's definitely disappointing. What's worse is that I'm not playing music and my phone is asleep, there will be no buzzing, but if someone texts me, my phone will wake up, and the buzzing comes back.
There's no microphone arm on this headset, but it does indeed have a built-in mic. The quality is passable, but I wouldn't recommend this as a dedicated headset for making calls. The microphone picks up a bit of ambient sound, and the recordings that I made on my phone sounded a little distant, like I was on speakerphone.
The comfort is ok. Make sure you rotate the pads to fit your ears. My ears aren't very sensitive so most headphones feel comfortable for me, and these seem fine.
I was able to get the LD-9210s to pair with my iPhone 5 pretty quickly. There's a multi-function button on the right earpiece that acts as the power button and the pairing button depending on how long you hold it.Read more ›
The other issue I have with these headphones is that the bluetooth connection is quite unreliable. Many bluetooth headphones also have a 3.5mm output, so that if you wanted to you could attach it to a device via an audio cable. Not these headphones... which means that if the wireless connection fails you're out of luck. And indeed, I had trouble getting this headset to pair with either my iPad or my iPhone. I finally got it paired with my phone after a lot of trial and error, but the connection was certainly not ideal.
So I decided let's just see if the LD-9210's will work on his iPhone. Same problem but to be fair not as bad to the degree that at very low volumes with the bass frequencies turned way down it did not distort. But as soon as you turn the volume up to about half it started to distort again.
I did like the way they felt for me. They were very comfortable. I found the volume and >> controls to be a bit clunky.Read more ›
Lightweight, even with rechargeable batteries built into the headphones.
Headphones expand to fit over big heads or even hats, can be rotated 180 degrees on either side so they can be shared by lovers... music lovers.
Low price. For working headphones of any kind, much less ones equipped with Bluetooth.
Cordless. It is great to be able to walk around, dance, have people walk between me and the computer or phone or iPad or whatever.
Fast charging. With a standard USB cable.
Sound quality. I hear a distinct buzz or hiss when playing through these headphones that I do not hear when I test the same songs and podcasts on my various other headphones. Compared to my Sonys, the dynamic range sounds pretty thin on the high and low ends.
Connection. Signal gets lost as soon as I go into another room in my small apartment. By comparison, my Bluetooth portable speaker can be used through the building and across the street.
The multi-function button. Press it for six seconds to go into pairing mode. I found pairing took more tries and was trickier than with my portable speaker. At one point I switched the pairing over to the speaker (for driving). Randomly after a few minutes, the headphones "stole" the pairing back.Read more ›
