Descent for a cheap pair. Read the pairing instructions closely. Needs to flash blue and white. Works on iPhone 6.

You get what you pay for with these. They aren't going to make you go WOW with the sound. The sound is descent for a cheap pair of wireless headsets. The headset for the top is plastic and looks cheaply made. They might be tougher than they look, but they look like if you accidentally sat on them or pry them too far apart they'd crack in half. I'm not rough on my stuff, so I think I'll be OK.
This headset does pair with the iPhone 6 for those that are wondering. This headset has been one of the more difficult sets though to pair. It's really not difficult though if you actually read the instructions. If you want easy pairing, get a Bose or Beats. Those prompt you for the pairing and basically make it dumby proof.
I think some people may have tried to pair these and didn't read the instructions carefully then quickly sent them back thinking they wouldn't pair. Here's what you should know about the pairing:
1.) Hold the button with the phone symbol flashes white and blue. Notice that I said white and blue. The headset also will flash just blue if you hold that button for just a few seconds to turn it on. If it flashes just blue it won't do the initial pair. You have to hold it longer until it flashes blue and white.
2.) Some might think that when it flashes just blue that it is flashing white and blue. It will be white when charging. Then will initially flash blue. Then hold it long enough and it will flash blue and white.
After trying several wireless headsets I've got some good general advice for people having trouble with the pairing with their phone:
1.) Charge the headset first. Many don't come charged very much. Without enough of a charge, it won't give out a strong enough signal and it likely won't detect the signal. If you're like me, you probably want to pair them as soon as you open the box. But stick them on the charger for about 15 minutes or so, THEN try charging them.
2.) Make sure you hold the pairing button long enough. About 6 seconds should be plenty long enough. Two or three or even 4 seconds may not do the trick with some sets.
This is a descent headset for the money. Not great by any means. The Bluetooth connection to my phone however seems better than even a lot of the far more expensive devices like Bose or Beats, etc. I haven't gotten really any skipping so far at all. So that is one thing this little $20 pair does better than the super expensive ones.
For me this is a cheap pair I plan to use at work. They're cheap enough that if I leave them out accidentally and somebody steals them they are no big loss. And it also lets you somewhat hear what is going on around you. One last thing to note is that the ear pieces don't twist like a lot of the other ones I've tried. These are fixed. All they do is extend and retract for head size. And holding down a little longer on the volume controls moves from track to track.
