PROS: Sound quality is fine, almost on par with the famous 8320's but with a much wider soundstage
Incredibly light and comfortable, especially the suction-cup looking headband cushioning which is excellent
Very stylish, the shine on these is super attractive
Bluetooth range is very fair
Earpads are very comfortable, and actually enclose my entire ear on both sides, I have small-average size ears
The faux-leather bag they came with is kind of "sticky-feeling," but it has a second, inner pocket (!) that quickly makes up for the odd texture
Battery life is great
CONS: While I previously stated the sound quality was "fine," it could be improved, highs and mids have a bit of harshness and noise can be heard even when listening to FLAC and lossless WMA content off of a PC
Disconnects from my laptop very frequently and unexpectedly, and i have to turn the headphones on and off again every time
When wearing these headphones, they are very comfortable. I do not feel any pressure on my ears or the top of my head. Overall I was extremely impressed on how nice these headphones were. I am a avid Apple ear bud user, but I think I may buy another pair of these headphones for listening to music around the house.
PROS: Comfort, Bluetooth connect ability, functionality, look and feel, Sound quality
PROS: Bluetooth volume is great!
Bluetooth sounds better than wired.
Long battery life
CONS: Will not work wired when battery dies.
Blue blinking light.
Just a caution for Canadians: you have to pay $35 for duty/taxes and the shipping/handling is somewhat steep.
However, I'm impressed with the sound and that's what matters.
PROS: Great sound quality.
Modern, sleek looks.
CONS: Needs to loose some weight to become a supermodel. How about carbon-fibre?
PROS: Great Sound
Good Battery Life
CONS: Poor Build Quality

The wireless function is great, bluetooth makes it easy for many devices to connect easily.
I like the corded ones ear piece better because it goes all the way around my ears and does not let much sound escape. However the wireless ones are far to useful for me to not use them because of this!
Overall very good purchase and did some research and found these being sold for $200 hah
PROS: Good sound quality
Volume and multifunction buttons very useful
CONS: Ear buds not large enough for my liking (lots of sound escapes)
PROS: Single battery charge lasts a long time.
Works well for phone conversations via Microsoft Lync.
Sleek visual appearance.
Pairs easily with laptop.
CONS: Average sound quality...especially at higher volume levels.
Headset volume control switch has very limited range - must use laptop volume controls instead.
On/Off switch is very stiff and sometimes hard to move.
Ears get hot & itchy with extended all day use.
Sound quality is great. They are not studio monitors for sure (especially over bluetooth) but they produce a great sound with a lot of bass. The only issue I'm currently having with the audio is slight fluctuations in volume over bluetooth. The issue does not exist if I use the 3.5 mm cable. I've tried to remove and add the bluetooth headset to my phone multiple times and the problem persists. You really don't notice unless you are listening for it.
Another issue are the size of the ear piece. They are rather small. While stylish, they position themselves as a half on, half off the ear. While not an issue with the audio, it may become uncomfortable after several hours of usage. I did use them comfortably for about 3-4 hours though.
Overall, this is a great piece of hardware for an even more amazing price. The sound is great, the form factor is almost perfect and the battery life is huge (3 days of on/off usage and still no recharging needed). Aside from the slight issues with volume over bluetooth, this is a great contender for the head phone market.
PROS: Comfortable. Long Battery Life. Easy to connect via Bluetooth. Controls easy to use.
CONS: Ear pieces are smaller and don't fully enclose your ears. Volume fluctuates. Blue LED ring on right earpiece blinks while bluetooth is active.
My immediate complaint upon taking them out of the box was the amount of noise they made. There was significant creaking in the headband of plastic rubbing against plastic. As you open it to stretch it to fit it on your head, there is even more creaking. All of the creaking and plastic rubbing had me worried from the moment I picked them up.
Upon putting them on and firing them up, they paired quickly and easily over Bluetooth. Also there is a long audio cable for listening in wired mode. This cable worked great as well. Make sure you unplug the audio cable when not in use, if you don't it will continue to drain the battery.
Unfortunately as I'm writing this review, these headphones have broken. The constant pressure of the plastic on plastic finally exploded (literally) as I was opening the headphones to put them on, one side of the headband shattered leaving the earpiece to dangle listlessly by its internal wiring. I would say that if they've improved the build quality this may be a good set to own. I really enjoyed them for as long as they lasted (about 6 months)
PROS: Good sound
Seals out sound
Long battery life
CONS: Very plastic
Poor build quality
Ridiculous blinking light
