Update (2018 Jan 18): After fixing both speaker cup archs with hard epoxy, the head arch started cracking.
Testing hardware: LG G2 (apt-x & bluetooth testing), custom designed DAC/AMP (wired)
Bluetooth: Works great. I have the LG G2, which needed a tweak to get apt-x to work, but sounds great as far as wireless is concerned. This is the only bluetooth headset that I've heard that has no noticeable artifacts from compression. The control buttons are laid out in a logical manner.
Noise Cancelling: The noise cancelling is mediocre. Comparing it to the Bose QC15s, I'd say it's 7/10. While in noise cancelling mode, there is an audible low rumble that occurs when walking that took a little getting used to. It works well for an office next door to a machine shop. Noise cancelling hiss is not noticeable; at least not in my office. Extra bass emphasis is added during noise cancelling mode.
Sound - Frequency Response: With noise cancelling off, these are bass heavy headphones, but they present themselves nicely. With noise cancelling on, the bass (specifically sub-bass) is boosted to the point I'd call them basshead headphones. They remind me much of the M100s in this regard. After some time with them on, I don't feel the need to turn the bass down (as I did when I first got them), but it's most likely due to brain burn in. Equalizing fixed most of the issues I have in this category.
Sound - Clairty: These are very clean sounding headphones. The frequency response is a bit wonky, but the phones present details very clearly.
Sound - Soundstage: They most definitely don't sound flat (like two speakers right next to your ears so to speak), but do not sound very large either. This is probably due to the drivers being positioned far inside the cups. Positioning feels natural.
Battery life: I get more than a days use out of them, which is 8 hours of them being turned on (both bluetooth and noise cancelling), with about 5 hours of that actually playing music through them. It's near the end of the day for me, and the battery is at 50%.
Comfort: The pads are comfortable and the unit is lighter than I thought it would be. However, the clamping force is a bit tight.
Build quality: Time will tell this tale. The unit is entirely constructed of plastic, which is a bit scary.
Overall: For someone needing a wireless headset, I'd recommend this unit. However, for noise cancelling or sound quality alone, I'd recommend going another direction. I'll be keeping them, as they're almost exactly what I needed: noise isolation, movement freedom, and decent sound quality in a loud office environment.
I've owned these headphones for 2.5 years now over the course of two sets of headphones and I very nearly bought a third pair.
The first pair died a little under a year after when the ears cracked off the headband. At first Creative refused to warranty them, but I sent pictures of my original Creative Aurvana Lives with the same stress fractures beginning to happen and pointed out that this was happening from normal wear and tear.
PRO TIP TO OWNERS OF THESE HEADPHONES:
Their warranty actually states that for one year any workmanship defects are covered: "Creative offers to you that hardware will be free from material defects ("Defect") in workmanship and material under normal use for a period of twelve (12) months from date of retail purchase by original end-user purchaser ("Warranty Period")."
When I pointed this out to their support team, my RMA was approved and I was sent a new pair of headphones.
So far this pair has held up but have begun to fall apart near the 2 year mark. Nothing that makes them inoperable but they will be dead within the next 3-4 months unless I can glue them together (which I'd rather not do).
So why 4 stars? I honestly love them that much, and I am pretty hard on them. Some tips to help these things survive:
* Get a carrying case (I never owned one)
* Don't sleep with them (I did that enough that it took it's toll)
* Be gentle with them (I was not that gentle with them)
For 100 bucks (price as of posting this) these are a great deal, but are lacking in the Bluetooth 4.0 that is now standard.
