I got these headphones to replace some old ones that I had and I'm pretty glad that I did. These are so much lighter than my other ones were. These are practically effortless to use. The pairing worked fast and I was ready to go in a matter of a couple minutes time. I think it took just as long to load my music on my tablet as it did to pair the headphones. The padding on these headphones are very comfy to wear. The ear pieces fit my ears perfectly which is usually a rare find for me. I actually tested the noise cancelling before pairing it. I put the headphones on and listed to what was around and I turned of the active noise cancelling and I was surprised that it actually made quite a difference. I've been using these on and off for a few days now and have not yet needed to recharge them yet so I'm happy to agree that the battery does seem to last well. Not only do these come with a usb charge wire but also a standard headphone jack AUX connector to plug into a device for play should you choose to use it. These do not have a pounding bass sound if that is what you are looking for but the sound is great quality. The only things that would make this even better is for it to come with a case for traveling and an option to alter the amount of bass. I've been keeping it in the box when not in use to protect it. Overall I'm very pleased with these headphones. Between the comfortability, easy of use, great fit, and great sound, these are well designed.
