    How clear is your voice when using the microphone? I want to use these headphones to take phone calls while I'm at work, but be able to listen to music as well.
    DEVIN S on Feb 26, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: They work very well for phone calls and conference calls. I have a Plantronics head set at work but when I work from home I use the Monoprice Bluetooth headphones and no one can tell the difference.
    How well does your 'wireless microphone' work with my Nuance Dragon Naturally Speaking Preferred 13 ('talk - to - text') program on my computer (running Windows 10)?

    How are they mowing the lawn?
    A shopper on May 20, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: You'd cut the noise way better with something which looks like yellow industrial earmuffs. 3M has a model that you might like, and it's actually rated for cutting ambient noise.
    What are the dimensions of the ear pads?
    Dale S on Mar 28, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: 3.5" top to bottom. 3" left to right. 1.75" thick. Let me know if you need more information.
    Is it possible to pair these with a Bluetooth transmitter, or do I have to enter a pairing code for them to pair successfully? I have been trying to pair them with a standalone transmitter that is supposed to automatically pair with Bluetooth headphones or speakers, but they don't seem to recognize each other.
    J Michael S on Jun 30, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: You don't need a pairing code, but it might require that the device can scan for pairable devices, like a computer or phone. Usually those standalone transmitters rely on your car stereo to be able to perform that function. I'm not sure it's possible to pair two standalone devices like that.
    What material are the ear cup coverings made of? Is it leather, or a synthetic material?
    David E on May 6, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: It is synthetic but very comfortable and easy to clean.
    Will these work with my blue tooth capable flat screen 4k TV?
    A shopper on Sep 2, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: Most definitely, YES. it will work with your TV. It works for my Hi Res Audio player, Enjoy.
    So this product has two microphones, correct? One embedded in the wireless headset and another that is built inline into the auxiliary cable included? I'd like to use this wirelessly for cellphone calls and wired for game chat on a PS4. Thank you in advance.
    Aarij R on Aug 8, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: No. These do not have any microphones that I'm aware of. I believe Monoprice sells other "gaming" headsets that will likely meet your needs better. These do sound great and are very comfortable!
    It's having trouble connecting to my computer, anyone have any ideas how to fix that?
    A shopper on Feb 25, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: I had issues at first and learned that you need to (in windows 10) right click the volume icon in the taskbar, go to play back devices, set Elite to default playback device and they'll start working. That's after you've connected them to the computer via Bluetooth. I don't have my laptop in front of me to verify the exact names but I'll try to edit this when I can look at it directly.
    Do you need to plug in the cord to use the mic?
    Scott B on Feb 24, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Nope - In fact I was chattering away on it one day, wandered out to the car, started driving, and then had to figure out why people were giving me an odd look.
    I got a pair of these for Christmas from my son. All I have is the headphones so how do I get them to How do I get them to work with my TV? They work with my iPhone and iPad. Do I need something else like a transmitter or something to tell my TV I have these ?
    A shopper on Feb 12, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: If your tv has Bluetooth than you can pair the headphones directly, if not you will need an interface of some kind, something like this Tube Amp with Bluetooth 25-watt Stereo Hybrid
    PID: 13194
    Can you use both the wired and BT at the same time? For instance plugged into the PS4 controller and streaming a pod cast from you laptop at the same time.
    Kimberly T on Apr 17, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: No you cannot. You must have the headphones turned off to Use the Wire. If on the wired Portion will be disabled.
    Would they work on the xbox one?
    A shopper on Nov 21, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Yes they should work fine with an Xbox One or any other device with Bluetooth connectivity.
    Does anyone know of a good case that these will fit in?
    New User U on May 5, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Yes, I bought one made by Modern Portable. It is a perfect fit.
    I just bought mine and only one ear is playing so could you provide me and address where I can send them to get fixed??

    What Bluetooth codec is used to transmit audio? For example: SBC, aptX, LDAC, AAC, etc
    Jervell C on May 26, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: Profile controls the CODECS available. The microphone on these headsets is supported by both HFP (hands-free profile) and HSP (headset profile). The eSCO profile and the A2DP profiles work with the headphones and the microphone as well.

    CVSD, SBC / MSBC, or PCM is used by HSP. The HFP "CarKit" server side can handle AAC, an992, and several others.

    You can try almost any of the CODECS inside the accepted profiles (HFP, HSP, A2DP, SCO / eSCO, some others).
    I have a few questions:
    Are these pure wireless or can I use these with a standard headphone jack?
    How long do these stay charged from constant use?
    Are these durable? I would be using them for 8 Hrs a day, 5 days a week in an office setting.
    A shopper on Nov 6, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: They are wireless but they also come with the headphone jack they stay charged for very long time certainly are
    Durable I went running with them and they are extremely comfortable
    Bought these headphones recently. Anyone else have problems with buttons working backwards? Track forward = Track backwards or Volume up = Volume down and vice versa?? Any idea if there is any non hardware way to fix this problem?
    Garrett K on Jun 14, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Have not used the track feature yet but have had no problems with volume.
    How do they compare to the Sonic Solace? How is the build quality? Many reviews point to charging and hinge problems.

    Comfortable, convenient, great sound
    These are the best sounding headphones I've used. OK, so I'm not an audiophile whose tried out all the best gear. But I know that with these things I can hear nuances in the music I listen to that I've never heard before.

    Quality oozes out of them. The sound, the look, the feel. Really high end.

    They fold nicely, and in such a way that they won't easily be damaged if they are stuffed into a backpack or suitcase. The hinge also seems very sturdy.

    The ear pads are a very high end material. Seems very durable, yet very comfortable. The ear pieces have a hinge to flex to fit your end. This hinge doesn't flap around. Its very damped, moves with hydraulic fluidity. It stays put with where you've adjusted it. The headband is metal (stainless steel?), and also acts as the spring to keep them fit to your head. They exert just the right amount of pressure. Enough to make they very secure on your head, and to seal well to lock out noise, lock in sound, but very comfortable. You don't feel like something is pressing them down on your ears. Its almost like they aren't even there. With no cord to get in the way, just further enhances that not really there feel.

    These things are a joy to wear, and a joy to listen to. I did list some cons, but these are more annoyances. they don't take away from the core value of these things.

    PROS: Terrific sound

    Very comfortable

    Very adjustable to fit your head


    Folds well for transport

    Bluetooth, OR cable, works with everything

    high end look and feel

    Adjustment stays in place

    CONS: The first time I unfolded them, the hinge pinched my hand (ouch!)

    The big buttons on the side don't have any way to ID them by feel (but eventually you get used to ID'ing them by location)

    When you adjust volume, they make this loud, annoying beep for each step up or step down

    They interrupt your listening to pronounce that the battery charge is at Medium, or Low, etc, and it seems like there is an abnormally long pause as part of the interruption which I find disruptive.

    The button to turn on/off has a red light or blue light flash to indicate which action you just took, and the flash also lets you know when you've held it down long enough for that action to occur. Except this LED is in the center of the button, which is covered by your finger that is pressing the button. So its very difficult to notice the flash. So sometimes its difficult to tell when you've held the button down long enough.

    There is no easy way to tell if they are currently on, or off (OK, yeah, if sound is coming out they are on. But if no sound, is that because they are off, or because something is wrong with them, or with your music device, etc, so you assume they are just off, so try and turn them on, except maybe they were already on, and you just turned them off, but you can't tell either way because when the LED your finger is covering flashes, you can't see it to tell!)

    They are very good for the price point
    I read some of the critical reviews and thought the headphones were still worth a try. I am pleasantly surprised by them.
    The main criticism I saw was lack of bass. They are actually fine in this regard. My go to song to test out new sound equipment is My Morning Jacket's Wordless Chorus. The opening bass line sounds good. The high's and lows are nicely balanced on these headphones. They remind me of studio headphones with their balanced sound.

    No these will not rattle your head like awful Beats headphones. They will sound great with just about everything you put through them.

    My only complaint there is just enough room for my big head. I tend to wear the second largest of the profit size you might find at Lids or another store. So if you have a big head, these may not work for you.

    PROS: Build Quality

    CONS: Just big enough to fit my my head. It's like an orange on a toothpick. I'll probably cry myself to sleep on my wee pillow thinking about how large my head is.

    Highly disappointed after a good start
    I received them on March 11 and used them practically everyday since. Primarily for work phone calls and listening to music while I work out at the gym. 2 days ago they shut off during the middle of my workout but I thought I still had plenty of battery life. They were telling me that the battery was medium. By the way, the headphones will tell you when battery is medium and low, nice feature. In this case, the headphones had not gotten to low. I thought it was just a glitch and that I simply needed to charge them. Charged them and yesterday they did the say thing. Today, I wore them to the gym and they shut down repeatedly. I continued to turn them back on and connect with the phone, but it was too annoying and distracted me from my workout. Unfortunately, I am packing them up today for a full refund since I am still in my 30 day window. They started off great and I was looking forward to using them on my first flight this weekend. Disappointedly I will not have the chance to hear how they peform on a flight.

    If I could be guaranteed that they would not shut down anymore I would keep them. Enjoyed the heck out of these headphones. Great deal for the price.

    PROS: Nice balanced sound. Bluetooth connection is easy. Very comfortable after wearing for a long tim.

    CONS: Obvious defect. Repeatedly shutting down although battery level is at 90%. Bass could be a lot better. Need to be able fell the on/off button.

    Light/Sturdy, Long Wear Headphones
    A bit of backstory: I’ve been on a quest for a light enough headset to use on a daily basis. I stream on Twitch for long periods of time quite regularly. I wear a headset for hours on end. One of my biggest gripes has been how heavy headsets are on small heads where the band is not properly supporting them. Having to cut streaming short because of a headache or sore head caused by a heavy headset is something I’ve found to be unacceptable & had recently switched to earbuds as light headsets with decent sound are few and far between. I’ve often found that when you search for light headsets, you sacrifice sound quality. I don’t need a mic in my headphones as I use a desk mic, so that’s one thing I need not even evaluate, but I can’t play an FPS without being able to hear someone sneak up behind me.

    The great people at Monoprice sent me these headphones for review (full disclosure) but they didn’t send any Goa’uld symbiotes, so all thoughts are my own!!

    Ok, let’s dive into the review, shall we?

    LIGHTWEIGHT: These headphones are very lightweight without losing the feel of being sturdy. I used to have trouble with the band of headsets bruising my head. I would develop migraines during long streaming sessions because of the pressure my old headsets would put on my skull. This was worsened by normal wear over time on some headsets with two bands as the inner, supporting band would lose its elasticity and cease to support the weight of the headset. I was even forced to switch to earbuds, which ended up bruising the inside of my ears over long periods of gaming. I know, I’m a fragile flower. I’m actually severely anemic and bruise incredibly easily, so this was a huge issue for me. These headphones don’t have that problem. I love the single band design & the fact that it is reinforced by metal leaves me confident that the support won’t deteriorate in the same fashion as the previous headsets I’ve used.

    ROTATING EAR CUPS: I’m not a fan of complete noise cancellation or isolation. I hate feeling like I’m under water. What I’ve done in the past was angle the headset so that the right ear cuff sat either in front of, or behind my ear so I could hear myself talk and any outside noises that might be important (oven timers, for instance, so I don’t burn my house down :P ) When I switched to earbuds, I’d have to leave one out completely. Even the wrap around earbuds for sports and jogging wouldn’t stay put when hanging over the shell of my ear. The great thing about these headphones is that the cups are able to be rotated slightly, presumably to accommodate different head shapes, but in this case, I can adjust my right cuff to let outside sound bleed in just enough that I can still hear beeping timers and not feel like I’m underwater when I’m speaking to my stream. It also allows me to keep surround sound on in games so I can tell when the enemy is behind me on the right instead of having to guess. Super helpful for 1st person shooters.

    BUILD QUALITY: The hinges for the folding mechanism are not loose & feel very strong. I don’t take these headphones with me when I travel, however, so I can’t speak to their portability. Although, I do sometimes fold them up when leaving them on my desk at night to take up less space. These headphones also adjusted well to my smaller head, but I could easily see someone with a larger head or ears having trouble with finding a comfortable fit for them.

    LOW PRICE POINT: I mean, c’mon. This speaks for itself, right? If you’re looking for decent sound quality, a sturdy build, AND the added perk of Bluetooth, you can’t beat this price with a stick!

    CONS: (More aptly “Recommendations”)
    3.5mm CABLE LENGTH: I don’t use the Bluetooth functionality as I don’t need to, and I can’t stop my stream to charge my headset if the battery runs out. I keep my headphones plugged in through the included wire. I DO like that the wire is flat and made of no tangle material, that’s a big bonus. My only complaint is that it is not very long. I have to plug it directly into my keyboard to be able to wear them while plugged in. They would probably be fine plugged into a laptop. I have, on a few occasions, reacted to a game or movie more strongly than these headphones allow and jerked back past the short 4 foot cord. I DO, however, appreciate that the cable is not 8 feet long. As the headphone jack is on the side of my mouse hand, a longer cord is easier to snag in quick movement, but again, the cable has popped out during some pivotal & certainly emotional moments. I’d recommend a solid 5 feet. In Monoprice’s defense, however, the fact that the cord detaches from the 3.5mm jack in the headset when stressed in this way prevents it from ripping the cord. I am thankful that I haven’t had to go buy a new cord, though, now that I think about it, I could remedy this con easily by purchasing a separate cable that’s 5 feet long. Something to consider.
    **I did end up getting a pink 6ft 3.5mm cable & it seems to have fixed the issue. Good to know!!

    To round out my review: I know I can’t attest to the Bluetooth portion of these headphones, but if you have a smaller head like I do, wear your headphones for a long period of time, and can’t stand how heavy other headphones are, these may be the headphones for you. So far, they’re the headphones for me! Another job well done, Monoprice!

    PROS: Lightweight
    Ear cups rotate
    Sturdy build
    Low price point

    CONS: 3.5mm cable is very short & comes out easily

    These are super comfortable headphones with a price that belies their $60 price. They look and feel like far more expensive headphones. They are a little light on bass, especially the bottom octave, and forward in the upper midrange and low treble. Apply a little equalization, trimming out 1 or 2 dB in that area and adding a few dB in the bass though, and they sound quite good, especially in consideration of their price.

    PROS: Super comfortable

    Very good build quality

    Great value

    CONS: Light bass

    Elevated upper midrange and lower treble

    Lacks tactile feedback for the multifunction play/pause/call button
    November 23, 2015
    I LOVE these. Quick to pair, excellent build quality and they feel like headphones costing twice the price. Comfortable, and there's no sound leakage.

    But, I wish I could easily switch from one device to another. I have it paired with my PC and my Nvidia Shield TV and depending on which I want to use, I have to re-pair them. It's not a huge deal but if I'm missing how, could someone enlighten me?

    PROS: Comfortable
    High Build quality
    Excellent sound
    no sound leakage.

    CONS: have to re-pair moving from one device to another even though it is paired with them

    Great product, but mine broke easily
    Great sound. I think Monoprice really got it right on these ones, with appearance being simple and stylish, and no huge LOGOs on it. The fold in a cool way, and fit the head well, and are very comfortable. They adjust well, in every dimension. Sounds was great, and noise isolation was medium. I dropped mine (6 weeks after buying them) from 2 feet, and they must have landed just wrong and broke at the critical hinge, so now mine are taped together. The Audio is great, but the plastic hinge structure broke too easily.

    PROS: sound, look, flexibility, bluetooth

    CONS: plastic hinge supporting part
    February 8, 2016
    Worked Great Until...
    cheap recharging port went south. Lasted 7 months. Please Monoprice upgrade this, can't use it if it won't charge.

    Awesome pair of headphones

    PROS: You really can't beat the price and the build quality of these headphones. This is the second pair I bought now for a family member and we are both very happy with them.

    CONS: My only knock against them would be the battery and the notifications it gives when the power is at medium, and a low. A simple beep would have probably sufficed.

    Excellent Bluetooth Headset for the Price
    Disclosure: Monoprice provided me with a headset for review

    Never has a headset brought me joy the way this particular headset has. Starting from when the headset arrived, I immediately popped it onto my too-large-for-regular-headsets head and watched as the world around me faded away. I work in an office where there is a constant droning noise that I didn't realize was bothering me until I put these on - they simply make the sound melt away, until there's nothing but you and what you're listening to. This was incredibly (and pleasantly) surprising to me as I've only ever experienced such complete, non-powered, sound dampening from a very expensive headset that I own.

    Sound dampening aside, the other features on this headset are also terrific. The bluetooth never had any trouble connecting to my phone, even after repeated connect-disconnect-connect rampages on my part. And unlike several other headsets I've owned in the past, when the battery runs out on this one, you can still handily use it as a passive set of really great headphones. Speaking of the battery, it lasts and lasts and lasts. Subjected to multiple workday play sessions of up to 4-5 hours at a time, my phone reported only about a 20% drop in battery, which is on par with some of the best wireless bluetooth speakers I've ever had.

    I have nothing but effusive praise for this headset, the complaints I have are rather minor. With a few design tweaks, the on/off button on the side could be converted to a switch which would be much appreciated for usability. Also, the bass can be muddy at times, depending on what music you're listening to on this (pleasant side note, jazz and classical sound fantastic on this headset). The only other issue I had was no one could hear me on the microphone that's integrated into the headset. Despite multiple efforts, I eventually had to cave, pop the headset off and switch back to my phone to talk.

    Overall though, I can't recommend this headset highly enough. As far as bluetooth over-the-ear headsets go, it's by and large the best one I've ever used. As a convertible headset that allows me to quickly switch from bluetooth on my phone to passive listening on my computer, it's a win-win for a use case I had never considered previously. So go buy it! It's well worth the meager asking price of $60.

    PROS: Great sound quality for the price
    Excellent sound dampening (on par with $150+ headphones)
    Bluetooth connectivity works flawlessly
    Detachable cable allows for multiple uses

    CONS: Lack of a dedicated on-off button, hard to figure out sometimes if I'm pressing the on/off button and holding it long enough or pressing something else
    Bass is a little muddy, but on par with other $60 headphones
    Microphone is hard to hear on phone calls
