OK, so exactly a week later these arrived. Nicely done, Meh and FedEx!
Hadn’t planned to use the Bluetooth feature since I simply needed earmuffs for winter walks and biking. (They seem to be like that stranded single sock - who knows where they hide?) And 10 bucks was what we had been paying for loss leader holiday deals at JC Penny for plain earmuffs.
But paired them up and while they certainly are far from “musical” and dynamic, they do have fairly clear sound. At least if not at topped out volume. They don’t go real loud.
Briefly tested on Pink Floyd, Brian Ferry, Manu Chau, Cat Stevens, Steely Dan, Talking Heads, Sting, Eric Clapton, Bach, and Chopin.
They’re least unhappy with unplugged music.
Oh, BTW, they seem to be comfortable with that soft faux-fur lining… haven’t tested over a couple hours tho.
Hopefully they’ll be both electronically and physically durable! Should have bought 3 rather than 2!
Before contacting Customer Support to return them because you cannot find the microUSB charge connector…
My first pair was easy since the short cable end was peaking out.
My other pair had the cable buried in the “Right” ear lining. Run your pointer finger into the opening on the inside top of the Right earpiece cover (there’s an open slot at the top of the inside of the earpiece) along the front/“+” edge of that lining. Fishing around in there, you’ll feel the speaker, the spring wire frame, and a larger diameter insulated wire with the microUSB connector on the end of it. Carefully pull that connector slightly out thru the slot at the top of the earpiece cover. Leave it peaking out so it is there when you need to charge. It did not appear to impact comfort when wearing the earmuffs.
