Hi I'd figure I'd put up a review of these headphones. I'm a fan of this style with the neckband, as I have a pair of lg tone pros as well to compare it to.

It's light, comfortable to wear and it's got a matte black finish as opposed to my pros with a glossy black finish. The earpieces are magnetic and are fitted inside slots for each right and left earbud.

I wear these when working and working out. Pairing was super easy and the range is good, at least as good as advertised. It's been really good. The sound is louder than my pros honestly, and the rated 13 hour battery life is better. Realistically I used them through an entire 8 hour shift including an hour workout and it still had plenty left whereas I'd be really close to dying out on my pros. Sounds louder and surprisingly bassier than my pros as well.

Durability so far has been fine no issues. Granted it's only been a few weeks but they still work like new.

Any questions let me know ill try to answer.

This one doesn't include a remote to skip tracks or change the volume does it?

yes they do. on the left side are the change track forward/back. on the right side are the volume controls. There's a pause/play button on the outer part of the left side.

I got these with the discount...thanks for that.

For music they are so-so. I can't say whether it's an A2DP limitation or not as I don't have any other BT headphones to compare them to.

They're excellent for audiobooks.

The noise cancellation pertains to voice calls and not for ambient noise while listening to music.

Being untethered to the iPhone is nice for working around the house or in the yard.

Further to my comments, it would be difficult to give these more than a 5 out of 10 for music quality.

However, if you're jailbroken there's an EQ tweak (Equalizer Everywhere, $3) that I've configured to make these headphones sound, in my opinion, a whole lot more "correct".

How are these for listening to music in the office? How about placing and taking phone calls? Does the microphone pickup the speakers voice well?
