I opened the box, turned it on, opened my bluetooth app, found the headphones and it immediately paired and started playing. I have an iphone so I don't know how they would work with an android. I'm guessing they work the same with any bluetooth enabled phone. I was impressed as soon as I opened the box. There are very attractive looking headphones. The earpieces are different than anything I have used before, and I wasn't sure about them, but as soon as I got them in right, they stayed and were very good quality. The sound was good and it was easy to use the volume and to change songs. Good bargain!
