I looked for bluetooth headphones at Wal-Mart, Fred Meyers and Best Buy and they didn't have much selection. They were all ugly or outrageously expensive. These are really cute and I love the fun colors. The ear cushions and head band are a very soft material. They were easy to pair with my phone and they block outside noises fairly well. I can listen to music and read my book while my husband watches tv. The sound quality is pretty good with everything from Tchaikovsky to Dr. Dre. Our laptop has bluetooth so I will be using them to watch movies as well. These are my first bluetooth headphones so I'm amazed by the convenience of hands free/cordless/tangle free use. Awesome!
