I got this because I cannot sleep without the TV on and my boyfriend needs to have it off to sleep. Well this does the trick. I'm able to listen to youtube on my phone all night without him having to hear any noise or have the glare of the TV. My only complaint is the wiring. I get tangled up in it at night.
I like to listen to books, music, etc. at night but hate having a big headset on & ear buds just don't work for me. This is comfortable and is just what I was looking for. I have ordered 2 more for my grandsons. The other similar products I found were at twice the price. Thanks Overstock.
They're fine for watching tv shows without waking your loved one in bed. They're comfy enough provided you have a fairly soft pillow as well. The speakers inside are not really formed for comfort, they're round and a little on the big side. They rely on the headband entirely for comfort. I say they're round but they're not "rounded", they're cylindrical. They DEFINITELY do not have the frequency specifications as stated when i asked for them, no way do they respond to frequencies down to 20Hz so don't expect to enjoy all of your favorite music with these. They're much better for tv shows and movies where the frequencies fall in the middle, or normal vocal range. They force me to turn the volume up compared to my other headphones but that could just be because they are inside a headband. The headband itself is fleece and therefor it's rather warm for the summer nights (when i bought this item). I'm more looking forward to winter when they won't make me sweat. They REALLY do not breathe well, it's properly cheap fleece. In the end i got the item because they were cheapest of all the examples of this product i could find. And it shows. I'd be happier if i had spend XX more dollars elsewhere on a more reputable brand. My last complaint is something Overstock does with A LOT of their products. They charge more and more for different colors, always almost charging the most for black , i guess because it goes with everything. I got a set of orange ones because they're the cheapest and i'm not wearing them out or anything like that. In fact the lights aren't even on when i'm wearing them so even better. But you see this with many items throughout the store but you only find out that the TRUE price of what was pictured (in the color you wanted) when you go to add it to your shopping cart. Shame on you Overstock. Luckily I've just been using you to buy the odd little gadget with bitcoins and I'd say you probably don't have anything else to offer me.
I fall asleep listening to CDs or mp3s, and these headphones are much more comfortable than the bulkier traditional ones I had been using. I also like that I can slip the headband over my eyes to help block out light. Another feature is that the individual speakers can be moved around within the headband, so if the volume is too high or low, I can manipulate how close each speaker is to my ears rather than having to adjust the volume at the source - CD player, laptop, tablet, etc. This is really helpful as the volume can get too loud if I shift from being on my back to being on my side and having the speaker pressing directly against my ear. Very glad I made this purchase.
