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.
My other Bluetooth headphones were behind-the-neck in-ear style, and anytime I would tilt my head back while working, it tended to push them out of my ears - rather inconvenient and loud when I was doing something noisy. With these being over-the-ear and over-the-head, I don't have any problems working while wearing them.
The sound quality is rather impressive. I was a bit leery considering the low price, but these actually sound better than my expensive studio headphones. With their frequency response of 20-20,000Hz, they produce some pretty solid bass and crisp highs.
They do still suffer from the same occasional dropout that I have noticed in every other Bluetooth device I've used, along with the faint hissing during silences. I would love to have someone come up with a Bluetooth device that could overcome these problems, but I think it must be inherent in the radio transmission from the player to the receiver.
One thing to note - in consideration of those around you - if you're listening to music at anywhere near full volume, it will be quite noticeable to others in an otherwise quiet environment. So I wouldn't recommend playing loud music on them in a library.
The only other complaint I would have is that there is no external audio input, so they can only be used with a Bluetooth device.
The sound quality is fantastic for a bluetooth set. It sounds better than most wired sets! My last set didn't have the same depth of sound at all. The design is also great. The ear pieces rotate and flatten out.
The set up was really easy. You press a button and check your phone for it to appear as discoverable. It took all of 30 seconds to pair them.
The only thing I would say that could be a drawback is that the headphones wouldn't make a great workout accessory. While they are definitely secure, I'm not sure that they would stand up to agressive activity (i.e. sprinting, weight lifting). They would totally work for walking/jogging and wearing while you do a semi-stationery activity (i.e. gardening, cleaning). I didn't buy them to use for working out so it's not really an issue for me.
My favorite part is that I can use them while wearing a bag and not get all tangled up! :)
I would definitely buy this again and recommend them to anyone looking for excellent sound quality without the hassels of wires or tiny earbuds that get lost all too easily.
