    Backbeat Sense - Wireless Headphones with Mic (Black/Espresso) is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 13.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Sound good, but... I use these headphones to listen to YouTube videos. Classical, jazz, folk... all sound good. BUT, some of the controls don't work. They seem designed to work if the music you listen to is stored on your device. Then, next track and previous track probably work. They don't work to advance to the next YouTube track however. That, I have to do manually. For me that's not a big deal. The headphones sound good. They're comfortable on the ear. BTW - the claim that they have a 100 meter range is ludricous. They work inside my house, even through walls, but the signal fades by 100 feet, not meters.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good bluetooth headphones Headphones fit well and sound quite good. I like the auto-off function when you remove the headphones. I haven't used the mic, so can't comment on that. Unfortunately, my laptop (Lenovo W540) has a neurotic, disfunctional approach to bluetooth which limits some of the functionality, but I put that down to the laptop, not the headphones. They worked with my iPhone quite well with no effort straight out of the box. Battery life is fine - I can listen all (work) day with no problem. Overall feels like a good value at B&H.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Smart headphones Love it's Bluetooth/in-line functions and it automatically pauses my music when it's off my ears. Sound is great but it's good enough for me. My old Soul headphones gave my great sound but the headband cracked so I can't use it anymore. The mic is very soft when using it in a wireless call, so using the in-line mic would be better. Overall I like it's smart functions and the comfort. It almost feels like nothing is there.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quirks, but tops. Comfortable. Nice looking. Solid sound - would prefer a little better range, but overall very good for wireless headphones. Easy easy set-up to par with apple products (turn it on, that's it). Not to be worn while moving around. Amplifying outside sound is useful. Controls being on the ears takes a little getting used to, but there aren't many. Auto turn off is useful, but sensitive. Case is snug and doesn't really provide much protection - carrying these around requires some space. Overall, very good for price range.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very satisfied with purchase I purchased these after some research into bluetooth headphones. I specifically wanted ones that had a mic(s). These pair easily and sound great. They are not lacking in bass for regular listening. If you want big boom and listen to mainly rap,dance,etc. you may want to engage elsewhere. For the gym, around the house, traveling, etc., these fit the bill. The pad will cover your ears and drop the sound level around you a few decibels. They will also make your ears hot. Other than that, I would purchase again.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great Value vs Benefits I was very happy with the box itself, it's very pretty. The headphones are very comfortable and the sound is great too. The battery life lasts for a long time (reviews says it normally 18-hour duration) and when you need it right away, you can always use the cable.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant Sound is great. Bluetooth range is amazing. I love the sensor that pauses play when you take it off. Headphones are so light, I'm not aware that there's anything on top of my head. I am aware there's a bit of pressure against the ears, but that's to be expected. I had read a fair number of reviews that complained about noises made by the headphones when you move your head or walk, but perhaps those reviewers received defective merchandise, because walking and moving do not affect my headphones.
