Anzel, South Africa. 30 November 2015

I am in love. Highly recommended and worth every cent

Kyle, South Africa. 22 July 2015

I work in a busy office and need headphones to drown out the noise and allow me to focus. These are excellent. Having no wires makes using these a pleasure. Amazing battery life, great sound and the best feature by far, auto pause when removing the headphones from your ears, I can't tell you how cool that feature is! If you were looking at Beats by Dre as I was, forget it, get these, they rock.

Marcos, South Africa. 11 March 2015

I was looking for a set of Bluetooth headphones for gym and went over my budget to get these. They are really not suitable for gym, too big and not tight enough on the head. So logical thing to do would be return them, but I can't, they're too good. Really fantastic sound, which is well balanced and adapts to my widely varied tastes. Quick and intuitive connectivity. Controls are simple to use and learn. Also they are very comfortable. All round a great set of headphones.

Etienne, South Africa. 22 December 2014

This unit has absolutely fantastic sound. Great bass, mids and highs overall. Extremely comfortable and can be worn for very long periods of time. The active noise cancelling is great for office or travel use and it blocks so much ambient sound out. NFC and other touch controls are also great - although you can't always remember which is where.

If the battery does eventually die ( last about 15-24 hours and yes I have tried this ), there is an extra cord that can be used with out powering up the unit. Comes with a bag,charging and audio cable. Everything you will require to fully utilize the unit.

There are absolutely no cons to this in my opinion - for the price it is by far the best NFC touch control Bluetooth headset currently on sale. For the same functionality you would have to go the Parrot Zik route or very expensive Sennheisers. Neither come close to this for in value for money terms - they sound better than the Ziks and are alot cheaper then equivalent Sennheisers.

Kea, South Africa. 5 October 2016

Seems to be some audio delay (0.5s), not sure if it's the headphones or the computer though

Eugene, South Africa. 18 January 2016

Really cannot complain about these! They work really well and sync with my notebook or my iPad without any complication.

Battery life so far has been great.

Sound quality (they are a closed, over ear design) tends to be a little bass-heavy (my corded headphones are Sennheiser 595s, which are open, over ear and a little brighter) and I would say that overall quality is not all that far off the Senns.

Downsides - They are a little bit heavy and a little bit bulky, so not ideal for bed use or exercise.

Very happy overall!

Elmar, South Africa. 12 February 2016

Awesome set of headphones with great battery life, comfort and sound. Only negative is that they are bigger than other headphones.

Kieran Donnelly, South Africa. 28 November 2015

Only had these for 24 hours but I couldn't be more pleased!

All the features you could possibly want: NFC, music and call controls, ridiculously strong battery, line in for when the battery dies, noise cancelling, and they pause your tunes when you take them off!

I don't think I've heard sound better than these offer. The whole package!

Shaun, South Africa. 15 January 2015

Love. It could be true love.

Pieter, South Africa. 6 February 2015

I did some proper research before I bought these and I have to agree with the majority of review that these cans are awesome!
- The sound is great
- Easy to pair with my NFC (S4) enabled phone
- They isolate sound well
- The controls are very intuitive
- Battery life is great
- The headset feels high quality and sturdy

- Didn't quite get the range that is claimed
- After a full day of use, I had some ear fatigue. (I don't normally wear headsets for long periods)
- The auto-pause was a hit-and-miss
- I wish the play-pause button would work with WinAMP on my laptop (some research might sort this out)

I have no experience with ANC, so I can't comment on its effectiveness except that to my ears background noise was blocked very well.

I will definitely recommend this headset!

Hannes, South Africa. 11 February 2016

Overall these are great. Sound is not as good as proper beats, but not bad. The bluetooth can become an issue when you have a couple of devices in the same space. I work on an iMac, with a bluetooth trackpad and keyboard. If I connect the headphones, and have my apple watch and iPhone bluetooth on in the same area - nothing works properly anymore. Only use it with my phone now...

Shanil, South Africa. 15 December 2015

Fantastic. Good bass, great battery life and awesome additional features (ANC, autopause etc)! Really nice that you can use it as a wired set as well...most other headphones don't have this feature

superb Bluetooth headset, South Africa. 11 August 2015

just bought this item. pavked with lots of nice technology and has great sound and good bass. definitely worth the price. i love all the features available.

Gregory, South Africa. 4 February 2016

its a no brainer, just get it, its just amazing, sound Quality is brilliant, just enough of everything to make your music come alive and great base.

Livhuwani, South Africa. 5 April 2016

Powerful, value for money i tell you.

M, South Africa. 31 March 2016

Just bought these bad boys. Returned the Sennheiser HD461i as they were simply not loud enough and not bassy enough.

Let me start with the cons: these guys are pretty bulky and a little on the heavy side. It would be nice if they were a little smaller and a little lighter. But then again, they are wireless.
I like bass, but these guys can get a little too bassy with some tracks. Also they aren't thaaaat comfortable. I have big ears and after a while my ears start getting pretty hot. Due to the sheer size of these puppies you will probably get quite a few stares as they look like you're about to fly to the moon. Some might think that is a good thing. Hey, who cares right.

Now to the good stuff: these headphones are packed with some pretty awesome tech! Take them off while a song is playing and the track pauses. Put them back on and it resumes. Push a little button on the right if you want to hear what is happening around you and the microphone picks that up and plays it back to you. Haven't had a chance to play with the ANC yet (the noise cancellation, not the beloved political party).

Only had them for a few hours but I really like them so far. Except for the size. But I guess you can't have everything :)

Divian, South Africa. 20 January 2016

I purchased the said item about a month ago (on the Daily Deal). The build quality of the product was great. The bluetooth however, was defective. Good sound, when it works. Wish I didn't have to return mine.

James, South Africa. 20 April 2015

Amazingly easy connection with NFC and even though it is a bit pricey, it is better than the rest. The bass hits hard and vocals are balanced with no distortion whatsoever. However, the noise cancellation does affect the sound quality by a fraction but it is nothing to worry about. No one should hesitate to purchase this great sounding, well-equipment pair of headphones.

Hewan, South Africa. 12 March 2015

Great set of Bluetooth headphones. Easy to use controls and a long battery life. The sound is amazing. All in all a worthwhile buy.

jaco, South Africa. 22 December 2015

Very impressed by this set of headphones, great sound and product.

Dillon, South Africa. 4 December 2015

Great product. Really happy with the sound quality and feature set. It's just unfortunate though that the material on the ear cushions are glued together at the seams. after 10 months this seam started ripping apart and started showing some of the foam inside. I really hope the warranty covers this and can get it repaired.

Alex, South Africa. 10 July 2015

Amazing product!!
Had to buy my Fiance a pair cause he wanted mine!
Great sounds and soo comfortable to wear absolutely love it!

Kevin, South Africa. 5 March 2015

Awesome headphones! Comfortable, well made, loud enough, great sound quality, amazing battery life (24 hours), NFC makes pairing simple, connect 2 devices (e.g. PC and phone) and nice features like the pause/play when you take them off and put them back on.

Did quite a bit of research and you can't get wireless headphones with similar quality and functionality at this price.


Adriaan, South Africa. 9 November 2015

Great product, awesome sound like the beat, pairs easy to devices, beats headphones to expensive

Elmar, South Africa. 11 March 2016

Wow this is absolutely the most amazing headphones I have ever listened to.
Grate job Plantronics
I going to use these for video production
Expensive but relatively cheap compared to other considering what you get

Zaheer, South Africa. 29 November 2015

Absolutely Phenomenal. Got it on the daily deal. Bass is dope and crystal clear music quality. definitely recommended

Mohammed, South Africa. 7 December 2015

awesome headphones, got them delivered a few weeks back and i am very happy, theres a few bugs here and there, but bluetooth always has bugs... great product overall =)

Sean, South Africa. 31 March 2016

I've just received these headphones and I can't stop wanting to put them on my head. Yes, they're a little bulky and have a slight weight to them (which makes me look like a Cyberman from Doctor Who), but the comfort I get from wearing them is beyond incredible. The sound quality is amazing and I absolutely love the Active Noise Cancelling function - as a frequent traveller this is a MUST HAVE ITEM! The Bluetooth range isn't as great as it's been raved about before, but that's not really an issue since I nearly always have my phone on me.

Anyone who's looking to have great sound, excellent noise cancelling, and comfort on your ears, all at a great price, then these headphones are for you!

Dick, South Africa. 17 January 2017

Does not work with windows

Steve, South Africa. 15 April 2016

awesome headphones! I bought these with the reviews in mind, otherwise they were a bit pricey for me but not dissapointed, I listen to a wide range of genres and it balances them so well, I must say the the noise cancelling is a cool feature but I don't use it, my ears are a little sensitive to highs, and the noise cancelling seems to add tremble I find when it's off the sound is a little more full, either way you're not gonna hear much around you! no distortion, great sound, decent bass across all genres, if you're considering it just go ahead!

Georges, South Africa. 23 January 2016

Excellent Design and Feel

Mohamed, South Africa. 4 July 2015

From Sony to Beats and everything in-between I have either owned them or tested them; however with Plantronics pro's that I recently purchased from, I am truly impressed at the quality and technology that's packed into to these bad boys. The bass is awesome, the stop/start function is a cool feature too when removing the headset from your head and ears. The battery life is amazing, I charged them 2 weeks ago and the head set still indicates battery High. The noise cancelling feature works well too. If you're going to travel via aeroplane you'll need to invest in an aeroplane type jack; also it does not come with the compact hard case like the Beats headsets, rather it comes with a soft and durable velvet lined bag for easy storage. Other than that this unit is value for money compared to the more high end units you can get. Trust me when I say the sound quality is up there with some of the more distinguished makes!

T, South Africa. 28 May 2016

quite good headsets. Bass is not good as I thought it would be for that price. But they are very good headphones.

Kyle, South Africa. 29 April 2016

Initially I thought these would be exactly what I was looking for but after using them for a while I was not convinced. I have big ears and I found it difficult to find a comfortable position to wear for more than 30 minutes. They were quite heavy. The noise-cancelling didn't work that great, it cut out some of the softer background noise but I still got lots of noise bleeding through (this could be a result of my big stupid ears, someone with smaller ears may get a better result). The bluetooth worked fine at home but at the office I had to use the cable because the bluetooth kept cutting out for a second or two at a time. The sound quality was decent, there is a noticeable change in the sound once you turn the ANC on, mids and highs were neutral to warm, lacking in bass presence.

Quentin, South Africa. 26 November 2016

love the product. the anc give slight hum with some environments like with airplanes.

Iain, South Africa. 1 November 2016

Great set of headphones. Amazing sound and build quality. Simple and seamless wireless connection to phone. ANC works great as well. Highly recommended.

Johan, South Africa. 1 November 2016

Great pair of headphones, good sound quality. Gets a little heavy and warm after a while though.

shane, South Africa. 15 April 2015

Worth buying,a good quality product. Very satisfied..!

Louis, South Africa. 3 January 2017

One of the best Noise cancelling headsets of 2016!

Trevor, South Africa. 8 July 2016

Excellent pair of headphones with exceptional sound quality. For the price I paid I am very impressed and satisfied. The noise cancelling works very well on planes and in cars. The battery life is excellent, very impressive to say the least.
I did find that they are slightly bass-heavy, but this can easily be sorted out by reducing the bass in the media players equaliser. Although I leave them as is, I find it good for the type of music I listen to (electro, house, future house, deep house, dubstep etc). They are slightly on the heavy side, but worth it.
Overall very impressive for the price

Chad Ackermann, South Africa. 2 January 2017

great headphones - packed full of features you use constantly without really noticing. one draw back is the size, however battery life and the ANC are great

Mario, South Africa. 15 December 2016

These headphones are truly exceptional. The bass response is unparalleled.

Kristian, South Africa. 9 April 2015

Excellent headphones, feels like quality. Does not need some silly App that's not available for Linux in order to operate, all the controls are real buttons that are intuitively placed on the unit. This is helping me be much more productive while working from home. With music at a comfortable low level & noise canceling enabled, my wife can be doing a loud activity with the 3 kids downstairs & it won't break my focus. Skype calls or phone calls work great, especially since I can leave my aging Nexus 4 on the charger that it often needs & move around as I please. Wireless also seems to be good for my back since I can take quick 1 minute strech breaks at my desk while reading something without first needing to disconnect myself from the laptop.

Just some of the many reasons why I really like it.

Gabriel, South Africa. 17 November 2016

The best headset I have tried to date. Perfect for the helping to block out office noise so that you can get decent amount of work done while listening to awesome music. The base is really good and can be deep depending on song and settings. The headset is so comfortable that when wearing othe headsets it cannot compare.

Overall really recommend this headset. Worth the price.

Paul, South Africa. 5 July 2016

This is a great product, does what it says on the box.

Dr Arvid, South Africa. 22 May 2015

Outstanding product

Jean, South Africa. 27 December 2016

These headphones does everything as advertised. There are numerous features and they all play a part in making the item a really good buy.

Michael, South Africa. 11 January 2017

Great product!

Zack, South Africa. 31 October 2016

Great Headphones.I got these on special but at full price I would say still worth it. If you like features then these are the ones for you. Wireless,Noise canceling, auto play and pause when taking the headphones off or on. call answering. ambient noise monitoring so you don't even have to take them off if you are talking to someone. link 2 devices at a time so no connecting and disconnecting needed, Very comfortable. The bass is a little heavy at times for me but the overall sound is great.There are also plenty of custom options when connected to your computer. 24 hour battery life!!!! Love them.

Joh, South Africa. 27 June 2016

Active noise cancelling is not as 'active' as some other brands such as the Bose Quiet Comfort 25. Also, Bluetooth struggles at times when two devices are connected simultaneous.

Other than that, the sound quality is fantastic. Bluetooth range is really good. In general the features are excellent. They are comfortable to wear even though I have big ears. I work in a busy office and when I am on a phone call the external noises do not interfere too much. I've used the headphones on and off for a week now and the battery is still going strong.

If active noise cancelling is the primary feature you need then look elsewhere. If you need a feature rich headphones then this is a great option!

Jody, South Africa. 12 November 2016

These are a seriously a great buy! If you buying for the ANC (Active noise cancelling) function, then you better off buying far more expensive headsets, but if you looking for very impressive sound, wireless connectivity, and ease of use, then these are highly recommended headsets. Especially in this price range..

Willie, South Africa. 5 December 2016

Great product

Mircea, South Africa. 1 November 2016

Everything you'll ever want... and more!
They feel great, sound great, packed with features, bluetooth and wired, great battery life, great for cycling - you can press the small mic button on the right hand side when you want to hear what's going on when crossing streets - you'll hear everything without taking your headphones off.
10/10 would buy again!

David, South Africa. 11 June 2016

Not only are these excellent headphones in their own right (just look at that list of features!), but the price is well below what you'd pay for them using dollars. They're going for $250 which, at the moment, is roughly R3800. The regular price of R3400 is great, but discounted to R2700 these were a bargain I'm happy I cashed in on. It's exceptionally rare to see tech sold for less here than in the US. Good wireless, active noise canceling headphones usually cost a lot more than this.

That said, they aren't perfect, or at least they might not be perfect for everyone. The cups are round, not oval/"ear-shaped", so this might be an issue for you. Also, one review I found mentioned that the cups are shallow which, while true, hasn't been a problem for me. I would've thought that these things would be an issue for me (and my relatively big ears), but they're not. Ymmv though, so keep this in mind.

The headband's construction feels a bit flimsy (it bounces if you shake it by the one end), but provided you don't step or sit on it, I can't see this being an issue.

Some reviews complained about the weight, but I haven't found that an issue at all (and I've been using them for 6/7 hours a day). Perhaps I might have noticed it if I'd used lighter headphones before.

The grip is a bit loose if you're looking to go running or moving your head around a lot while using them (so maybe don't do that).

Aside from these nitpicks (none of which have affected me) and the occasional "technical glitch" (which might just be me being thick), these are excellent headphones at a fantastic price.

Philip Zachariah, South Africa. 24 November 2016

The auto pause function on these headsets are defective. For both my headsets that I ordered I needed to turn off the motion sensors to get it to work properly. So now it functions like a normal Bluetooth headset. Happy with the product now.

Zorodzayi, South Africa. 22 June 2016

Good set I must say.

Schalk, South Africa. 17 August 2016

Excellent product!
Some pc connections issues at first, but after it works well. Would highly reccomend.
Delivery was swift and hassle-free.

Charl, South Africa. 7 November 2016

I've only had the headphones for less than a week and the active noise cancelling is already broken.
