You get a lot of useful features from the BT 100 NC which includes decent noise cancelling, Bluetooth as well splash resistance, which makes these earphones great for casual or active use. Sound reproduction has great clarity as well as full mids and okay bass, and should work well with many music genres. See More
If you love powerful bass or non-fatiguing treble, then the BT 100 NC’s sound signature may not be for you. The bass is present, but the quantity may not be enough. The slightly emphasized treble can make the sound harsh and can be fatiguing to listen to for long periods, especially if you are sensitive to treble. See More
Bass is not emphasized yet is full and has good punch so the sound does not sound lean. The mids are warm and full, so guitars, vocals and drums sound great. The highs are slightly emphasized, which brings out a lot of detail from the music, but can also make cymbal and “s” sounds quite harsh. See More
You’ll be able to control the various earphone functions using the buttons and switches on the BT 100 NC’s collar. It houses the earphones’ battery and noise cancelling circuitry along with the buttons for answering and ending calls, play/pause/skip/previous tracks, volume adjust and the noise cancelling switch. Aside from being easy to reach, the collar also takes as much weight off of the earpieces as possible, so they stay inside the ears well. See More
The sound signature is flat/neutral. This is refreshing when compared to other earbud options today which favor the lower frequencies more. The sound has a nice degree of clarity, so the details of the music can easily be appreciated. See More
The flat sound signature can come off as too boring, especially if you are used to headphones/earbuds with boosted bass or shimmering highs. If you are looking for fun headphones to listen to, then this pair is probably not the best option for you. See More
Each earpiece has a magnet inside. When both pieces are connected, incoming calls are ended while music is played. Separating the earpieces will answer a call or resume music. The magnetic earpieces also help keep Level U Pro around the neck when not in use. See More
I've owned two pair of Jaybird headsets, and numerous wired earbuds, and the Apple Airpods are the best overall wireless earbuds for everyday use. I have them in around the house, walking the dogs, on my 3 hour, one-way commute, almost all the time. I never used to do that with the Jaybirds. Even after wearing them for most of the day, I've never run out of juice when I needed it because I put them back in the case whenever they're not in my ears, so they're always charged. As for the fit, the original Apple earbuds would hurt my ears after an hour or two of wear. My only guess is that there isn't a wire pulling on them anymore, so they sit comfortably. I really wasn't expecting to love the Airpods, but I ended up buying a pair for my wife and parents as well. See More
Probably my favorite electronics purchase in the last 2 years and IMO the best apple product since the iPhone. There isn't a specific feature that makes these my favorite headphones, but just how everything comes together in a really polished way to reduce all the friction from listening to music. They are always charged, never have tangled wires, automatically pause music when you remove one to talk to someone etc etc etc go buy these. See More
