Decent deal per history on CCC, was $15 cheaper 3 days ago. Seems to usually waver between $130 and $199.

these were $85 on prime recently, so i'm not sure why it's SD worthy now.

Heard a few customers say the Bass is a little too much.

I've been using these for a year now for my daily walk while listening to podcasts, works great over bluetooth with my phone in my pockets, being around wireless towers (or something) will cause interference as there are 2-3 spots in my walk where the audio cuts out for 10 seconds. Phone calls work great, there is no visible mic but i hear people just fine and they can hear me no problem. VERY comfy, no issues at all after an hour or even two but my head is pretty big. My wife doesn't like it, says its too heavy for her head but she's 110 lbs and tiny.

Battery life is pretty good, I'd say 15-18 hours is about right. Only minor quibble is that its not really obvious when the battery is running low, I'm sure there is some pattern to the light or whatever but its not obvious.

They do work well. A plastic piece near one of the cups broke on mine after about a year. The other thing is I got sweaty using them in the summer months, and they don't fold up in a nice compact way.

After they broke I got pair of Bose for $160, and to me it was well worth the extra money.

I have these phones, used about 2-4 hours/week. Typically will need to charge every 3-4 weeks, about 15-20 hours between charges is about my average.

If BassBoost is off, sound is decent, can hear highs and mids. But if BassBoost is on, then sound can get muddy. However, I'm preferential to the low frequencies, so I personally like this. Bought for $80 during BB pre-Chrismas sale 2016, so good deal IMO

These have been $99 since Black Friday at Best Buy. They've been as low as $89 in previous sales too throughout the year.

These are damn good head phones. Bought a pair last year's model super clear and the bass is fantastic.

The app shows you the battery life. Also for those saying they're too bass heavy, that can be tamed in the app.

Edit: Just found out if you tap the power button it'll say the battery level. Pretty cool.

Can anyone comment if there is lag in the audio during conversation, or while watching a video?
