Great product for my needs and at a good price.
on June 25, 2017
Used these for the first time yesterday. Setup was easy and they quickly paired to my transmitter. Battery life and standby time is great so far. This was the major deciding factor for me. Fit and finish is good, theyre light weight and i like the design. My only complaint is that theyre not as "around the ear" as i was hoping for... though better than my previous pair and less cumbersome. I don't think my ears are disproportionately large either, but after several hours of wearing these my ears were tender and hurting. Perhaps some thicker padding on the ear cups would make a difference. Sound quality is good, but I didnt get these to listen to music, just a variety of tones coming from my metal detector. And having no wire tethering me to the machine is amazing.
At this point I have paired these headphones with several other devices such as my phone, computer, alexa and tv. I'm currently at work listening to some prime music and have wandered a good distance from my desk to the watercooler and restroom while still maintaining a connection. Yet again its so great to be wire free. However, after about 2 or 3 hours use I still start to find them uncomfortable and, at this point must remove them. Fortunately I was contacted by Avantree support in response to my last comment, and they are sending me some larger ear pads. Thats some pretty awesome customer service. I look forward to receiving the new earpads and hope they will make the extended use of these headphones more comfortable. Will update here again once the new earpads have been tested.
Update: Received the larger ear pads a few months ago. Swapping them out was easy, and they're much more comfortable now. Thank you Avantree Customer Service!
