I really like these headphones. Yes they are clunky. But the sound quality is excellent for both music and audiobooks and the Wireless bluetooth battery lasts forever on one charge, not like those small ones that only last 2.5 hours on a charge. These last like 8 hours on one charge. They also cut the ambient noise around me if I want to activate the noise cancelling option. I never do because I use these to travel with and I need to hear what's around me. These headphones get me "there and back again" with a minimum of fuss. I just wish they were a little smaller.
