Watch: Nicky Paul is Desperate for True Sound

The design of these headphones is attractive, and it delivers an even sound quality over a steady Bluetooth connection. The microphone for voice calls could be better considering the price point, and the lack of noise cancellation is inconvenient. While comfortable at first, a pair can get heavy over time.
