DON'T BUY THIS PRODUCT. Go read the amazon reviews, it's a defective product they are dumping by discounting it. I bought a pair of these for my son. The sound was really good for wireless headphone and the quality for most of the product is very good. However, it has a massive defective plastic problem with the swivel that connects the band to the cups. It broke after a few weeks of normal use and it was obvious the plastic was brittle and crumbling. I hope they catch a class action lawsuit over this product. Support says that any physical damage invalidates the warranty.

I listened to my friend's pair of these for several hours and I wasn't super impressed with these headphones. I found that even with the bass boost off, the bass overwhelmed and muddied the other aspects of the music. These headphones are a decent buy if you love overwhelming bass or are big into hip hop, edm, or rap, but not that enjoyable when listening to other genres. There are several other options in this price bracket that are more neutral and I would be inclined to recommend one of those unless you are a bass-head.

I really wouldn't recommend this to anyone. Yes, the bass is great(sometimes a little too much), and it's very comfortable and light. But it's guaranteed that you will break this even with very light use. The swivel part is extremely weak. I have no idea why they don't fix this or offer a replacement for it.

offering replacement part for swivel part would be great.
I have three of them at my house, one broke after about one year, two others are still ok.
they are great for on line gaming and listening to the 80ies music.

I'm really close to grabbing these headphones. At $80 it really is a good deal. I'm just having some concerns with the durability and buying from eBay.

Do you know if the mic works when plugged using wired mode into a PS4/PC?

I own 2 of these headphones (black and red) for 2 years now I love them!
No issues with them cracking or breaking, the sound quality (for my bass head) is awesome.
I'm buying the blue for my collection...

Honestly if you are just looking for a good set of Bluetooth headphones I would get the jabra move wireless (60 bucks) or spend a little more on some more premium wired sets like the audio-technica ath-m40x or something.
