does it come with a charger?
BEST ANSWER: It comes with a cable that plugs into a wall charger, much like a phone would connect. The actual wall charger is not included. It can also plug into a USB port on a PC.
Are these compatible with apple products?
BEST ANSWER: I use these with my iPhone7 all day long. Great headphones for the price. Only complaint is the noise canceling has a separate power switch and can be left on after you turn off Bluetooth. Not a big deal but I could imagine if you forget to turn both off you could kill the battery and not know it till you go to use them again. I’d buy these again
Does this have a built-in microphone?
BEST ANSWER: Yes, plus Bluetooth v4.0 with A2DP, AVRCP, HFP, and HSP profiles, so you can take phone calls.
how to activate Noise Cancelling features?
BEST ANSWER: The product manual states that the headphones must be powered ON for the Active Noise Cancelling (ANC) feature to function. Turning the ANC on and off is done with a slide button that is on the right earpiece and separate from the other controls on the left.
Do these come with a storage or carrying case? If so, is there a picture of it somewhere?
BEST ANSWER: Its on their website below in the details section. Like it would have been less work to look for the image than ask this question...
Are these good for working out?
BEST ANSWER: I haven't worked out with these, but from how it fits over head, I would assume probably not, it would probably slip out with movement.
what is assessment of ANC feature?
BEST ANSWER: The ANC is not as good as a Bose QC II, but it is surprisingly good with no eardrum-stretching pumping with with sudden impulses. I can use these to listen to podcast dialog at normal volumes while pushing a lawnmower. Impossible with ANC turned off, even though the cups provide reasonably good sound isolation by themselves.
does this flip out into a shape like the letter omega (Ω) the way (wired) Sennheiser 280s do? my kingdom for bluetooth headphones that don't press the ear cups on my neck when hanging around my neck.
BEST ANSWER: Sort of - they do not fold vertically to make the omega shape, but the ear cups do rotate 90 degrees laterally to lie flat in the same plane as the headband, so they are not in the way of my chin like other models can be when worn around the neck.
If you plug them in with a 3.5 mm jack cable, do they take the power from the source from which the cable is plugged in or will it still use it's own battery for power?
BEST ANSWER: Yup if you have the audio cable plugged in, you can hear sound in them from your device even when they are off.
Will these work for people who wear glasses?
BEST ANSWER: These are a little tight on the edges so they will push your glasses a little bit. It really depends on the type of glasses you have too. If the temples are flat, you will feel it a bit more than if the temples are round. The noise cancellation on these headphones are not that great but overall, I would recommend these headphones.
can these be used as wired headphones?
BEST ANSWER: Yes they can. I was on a flight and had issues with my bluetooth connection with my tablet. I switched to the 3.5mm connection and they worked great the rest of the flight, with the ANC turned on.
Will these headphones work on a Bluetooth system for watching tv?
BEST ANSWER: I use the headphones to listen to my TV. Since the TV does not have Bluetooth built in, I initially paired it with my Amazon Fire Stick, which worked great. I then bought an August MR270 Low Latency Bluetooth Transmitter which is fed from the optical output on the TV. Again it works great.
Do these headphones have a microphone?
BEST ANSWER: Yes, they do. I use them for phone calls and video chats at work. Note that if you're using the mic to talk, the sound quality of what you hear is reduced (all pre-Bluetooth 5.0 headphones have this issue). It's really only a problem if you want to use that for something like in-game chat though.
Do these headphone fold compactly for storage similar to the noise cancelling Bose Brand?
BEST ANSWER: I don't know the bose so I can't compare but they do fold nicely. Sound is great, noise cancelation works well. Only complain is that the band broke in the middle, but only the plastic. Under it is a metal band which cannot break so the headphones are as functional as they were. I was not particularly rough with them so I believe they are weak there. But overhaul I love these, would buy again.
Can the user replace the lithium battery?
BEST ANSWER: No they cannot.
Do these become external speakers? Do these become external speakers?When I don’t want to use them headphones
BEST ANSWER: no.
do you need a cable when using in an airplane ? The cable gets tangled up especially when you get on and off your seat. What I need is complete wireless. Are the airplane jacks even have bluetooth capability?
BEST ANSWER: They work off of bluetooth. If your plane has Bluetooth, then no wires needed. I haven't been on a domestic flight that has had Bluetooth connectivity so keep that in mind.
How many decibels does it reduce?
BEST ANSWER: I don’t know the number of decibels, but I use it to mow the grass on my zero turn and they significantly reduce the noise. They make it comfortable to listen, though I can still hear the mower in the background. Hope that helps!
Are they waterproof? I wanna use them in my sauna
BEST ANSWER: I would honestly consider these to be water resistant, but not waterproof. They are well constructed and sound great. A dry sauna would be fine, just not a steam sauna.
I want to use these on a PC is there anything else I need to buy to get them to work like a blue tooth plug into my PC jack?
BEST ANSWER: If your PC does not have Bluetooth built-in, you will either need to purchase a Bluetooth USB adapter or, if you don't mind being tied to a cable, get a mini-stereo male-to-male cable to connect between the two.
Est ce que ce casque est bon pour écouter la télé?
BEST ANSWER: oui, à condition que votre téléviseur soit équipé d’une prise casque 1/8 ou d’une connexion Bluetooth.
Does it come with the aux audio cable?
BEST ANSWER: Yes. It includes a 1/8" stereo audio cable.
the manual cautions against the headsets contacting water. I would like to use them when working out in a gym, but I sweat a LOT. Is that an issue?
BEST ANSWER: These are great headphones. I primarily use them at home. I go to the gym as well and opt to use in ear buds that hook around ear. In fact I’m checking into purchasing an additional pair from this vendor.
Is there a way to mute sound when watching TV other than by turning earphone power on and off?
BEST ANSWER: No there is no mute microphone on the earpiece or cable. Perhaps switching to a different cable with a microphone/ mute would work, although you would not be able to do this with Bluetooth.
Is there a link to the manual? I never got one and now it won't turn on. Thanks.
can I connect to my pc (desktop version)? PC does not have bt. Does these come with a bt dongle?
