Like other reviewers, I've tried a couple of dozen different head/ear phones, some very pricey. None are as comfortable or sound better than these. They are highly efficient, extending battery life of your player. Most importantly, they stay postioned even during rigorous activity. Ok, they're not the prettiest. They still get all my stars.

I'm not sure whether what he said is accurate for these headphones, but logically, headphones use battery life. Anything that is using electricity is going to drain the battery. Obviously, if the headphones are efficient, as he says, then they use little electricity but still produce high sound quality and volume. If you have a perception of an average battery lifespan before a recharge with an average pair of headphones. If it's true that these are more efficient, then there would be a perceived effect of a longer lasting battery. Therefore these headphones extend battery life.
Think, then post.

Let's be clear here. Headphones CANNOT extend the battery life of a any type of device. They are passive components and media players are designed to actively drive headphones which appear to the device as a constant load. If what this person is suggesting were true, you'd get amazing battery life by leaving your headphones unplugged, but you don't. This is an unreliable review at best.

If there is more sensetivity to sound drivers in the headphone, and is genuinely more efficient, the volume (power output) from say an MP3 player will use that power level.
For Example: There are in fact headphones that can allow you to run half of your average volume because of the efficiency of the drivers. There are also headphones that you cannot get to a listening level, and the volume would have to remain at 100% (Im looking at you AKG Q701). That being said, speakers in general require different power output levels to reach their volume. 1 pair of speakers may be so efficient that you get the volume level to cause distortion by 60%, while other headphones (like these, and not AKGs...) may require 100% volume for the same outcome. Its simple, really.
Try this for an experiment, yet a $20 one. Connect any portable media player to a Fiio E6, and turn the E6 all the way up so that you can keep the volume all the way down on your portable player. Your result will be the battery life of using a battery powered device at 100% power consumption compared to its minimum. The Fiio would have to be charged every 8 hours. The life of the portable device will increase substantially.
