    First things first. Do these sound good?
    Coming from a pair of 1000xs, when I first listened to the Sennheisers my heart sunk – where did that soundstage go? 🙁
    Of course, if I had come to these from my much cheaper older headset, I would have been drooling over the soundstage. Then, I kept at it for a couple of days and by now I am starting to like their sound more and more. So I will definitely be keeping these. You get a lot for the price. You get

    – Very strong, very good aptX bluetooth connection for android headsets. My One plus 3t lagged a lot on my 1000xs, but it flies with these ones.
    – Very good call answering – people hear me loud and clear, unlike with my 1000xs
    – Strong NC – nowhere near as good as the Sonys, but with music at 60% most things don’t get through. No music on however, and the NC is minimal.
    – Very good sound. I would say this is an upper tier mid-level headset. It won’t touch the Sonys, or even the PCX 550s with sound quality. I would put them as 70% as good. Perhaps the ABN100s outdo these as well on that front, but the NC is on part, and the ABN100s NC has the dreaded wind woosh effect when walking outside, unlike the 4.50s which are unaffected by wind.
    – Quick charging times, and close to 20 hours of battery.

    The one thing I miss is a bit more loudness. There are tracks that I listen to 100% volume, most tracks I listen to 70-80%. With my Sonys I never needed to go higher than 60%.

    Would I recommend these? I think they are a very good buy for the money. And if you want to amplify your sound, you can always use an equalizer app.

    I bought a pair of these headphones 2 years ago and I have been using them nearly every day since. The battery is phenomenal, the sound is brilliant and they are extremely light and comfortable. Very very well made, they feel sturdy and far from cheap.
    Sure they aren’t the loudest of most vass heavy headphones but when a song is mixed properly the bass will pack a serious punch. And I mean serious. Not a bit of distortion ever! Anyone with these that disagrees just listen to ‘Leitmotiv – Molecule’. Its intense and crystal clear when most other headphones will struggle.
    All in all, if you are an audiophile and love getting goosebumps rather than a pounding headache then these are for you.
    My only issue is the physical buttons for pause/play is a bit awkward. Thats literally my only issue.

    Quite simply, why bother with Bose…
    These headphones have excellent sound quality, whether wired or Bluetooth, brilliant nose cancelling, huge battery life, very comfortable, and feel like they are built to withstand much abuse.
    I bought hem to replace a pair of much loved Audio Technica’s that were a similar price. The AT’s broke through my own clumsiness, but they really shouldn’t have.
    The connectivity is great and all the features work really well. The battery life easily lasts me long enough to complete two 8 hour flights, and various airport/transit connections.
    I especially like the bag they come with, this offers adequate protection, but doesn’t add bulk. The Captune app on my IOS devices is great, the ability to set multiple EQ options for different music genera or speech is real bonus.
    My only negative is that the connection wire is a specific design, so if you ever lose or break it, you can’t buy a generic 3.5mm. I’m always on Bluetooth, so it really isn’t an issue for me.
    All in all, these compare favourably to any Bose headphones I have tried, but are much cheaper.

    The pairing of devices using Bluetooth was simple enough with instructions given mostly in pictogram. (search online for more detailed manual). ANC can be switched on or off. The headphones will stay with whatever the current setting is after switching the power off. I use them at the gym and in the cardio room with the noise of music from the gyms sound system and the pounding on the treadmills, it is quite noisy. Pop the headphones over the head and that noise all but disappears. Play some music and that’s all I can hear.
    At first the headphones were a little uncomfortable but with some adjustment they’re now fine. They can get a little warm during a weights workout but so will any overhear phones.
    My hearing was damaged some years back and I have to wear hearing aids because of frequency loss so maybe I’m not well qualified to comment on the sound quality of these headphones. However, they are a massive improvement on my old £60 pair from another brand. The whole range of sound is tighter especially the bass. I couldn’t help but think ‘WOW!’ when the bass rift in the intro to The Prodigy’s Breath started.
    The build quality seems fine though I’ve only worn them a few times. Adjustment is excellent. I’ve a fairly small head and my old phones in the gym used to keep slipping off, even with the headband at the lowest setting. With these, I have to up the headband a few clicks to lower the earpieces for comfort and there’s no slippage.

    All in all, I’m very pleased with my purchase.
