Solid Bluetooth features and sound at this price point...
By Sean from Queens, NYC
I wavered between 3 and 4 stars for these dBs Bluetooth over ear headphones. First impression is that they are lightweight and fold nicely into most cases meant for foldable headphones, like the case made by Sentey. Bluetooth pairing works smoothly, and I am able to get pretty great range with these. Leaving my iPhone on the living room couch, I was able to walk around the house, into the bathroom, and even into a back bedroom without any drop in connection. That's pretty cool. The sound is good, not earth shattering, but for $49 I didn't really expect to be completely blown away. They sound a little better and louder when connected with the included 3.5mm headphone cord. Now for the bad. These headphones, as others have commented, are really on the small side. I have a pretty large dome and also wear hats a lot of the time. I have to stretch these dBs headphones to the limit to have them even fit on my head. This might end up being a deal breaker. Also when paired in Bluetooth mode, there's a quite bright blinking blue LED light that while looks neat, I could see it being distracting if using in the bedroom at night or on a plane in the dark. I suppose I could put a little piece of electrical tape over the light as I haven't found a way to turn that feature off. At least the light isn't an issue when using these headphones wired, as you would on a plane connected to the in flight entertainment. I really want to like these headphones. I've tried on and listened to floor models of all the various Bose and Beats headphones. I love the Bose sound, but find most of their product designs a little off. The true noise canceling Bose headphones make feel a little nauseous, like they're sucking my brains out having them on. The Beats Solo 2 wireless headphones have a great fit and look, but it's hard to justify the $300 price tag. They sound nice, but not $300 nice. So for $49 these are solid headphones. The Bluetooth seems to work very well. They're lightweight and not overly gaudy. I can't speak for battery life just yet as I just received these. The sound is about what you'd expect at this price point. Good, but not life changing. Whether I keep these or return them is going to come down to whether they're going to actually fit on my head without being uncomfortable. There is at least a bit of give in the top portion of these so they might work out.
Update two weeks in: I've decided not to return these. They are still on the small side, but I've found them to give a little. Not entirely thrilled that the price dropped $10 to $39.99, but I guess that's life. Still for compact, foldable headphones with solid Bluetooth capabilities, these are a great value. I don't have an issue with the sound. I think a lot of that is in people's heads, literally. When you're taking $250 for Bose or $300 for Beats wireless, that's just insane for something that takes the beating headphones do. Battery life is pretty great. If you can pick these up for $40, then seems like a pretty solid purchase. Even worth the $50 I paid.

2 headphons snap.
By Joseph Lettig
I originally received the DB's wireless Bluetooth headphones back in August they worked fine decent sound etc. However 7 days later I go to simply take them off of my head and the arm of the headphones snaps in two. I put no pressure on the headphones other than enough to take them off. So I sent an e-mail to the seller and they replaced them within a few days which I was happy about. Move forward to present 10-26-15. I go to take off my headphones to put them away after listening to music and lo and behold they snap again in the exact same spot except on the other side of the headphones. Needless to say that I have a bad opinion of these headphones. In both instances I wasn't rough with the headphones in any way both times I was simply taking them off of my head. As far as sound quality they work great, but as far as the build structurally they leave much to be desired. Wouldn't recommend them.

Very flimsy headphones
By Joey Purser
This product is not made well. The part of the headphone where it folds snaps very easily. The first pair broke within the first day. I decided to try it again and exchanged them for a new pair. They too broke in the same place. I am returning them and ordering a different set of headphones. Don't waste your money I would give this product a no star rating but it would not let me post a review without giving at least 1 star.
