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
There is no harshness to the highs, the mids are clear and the bass has good oomph without the bloat. Detail from these headphones is also good, with instruments and voices sounding clear and well-defined. This sound signature can work fairly well with all types of music, though if you really want boosted bass or highs for certain types genres, then these might fall short of your needs. See More
The included ear tips are quite thin and squishy. They are not able to provide a good grip while in the ears, and can make the earpieces prone to falling off. These tips also adversely affect the sound so using better quality ear tips will result in noticeably improved audio. See More
To get extended use out of your headphones you can use a charging case that can be bought separately or as part of a bundle. You attach the micro usb connector from the charging case to the earbud and let it replenish the battery. A fully charged case can charge the earphones twice. See More
This earbuds have magnets so you can keep buds together when off, but that doesn't trigger shut-off to save battery, as it does in many competitor products. There's also no "auto shut-off if not used for N minutes" feature, AFAIK. Bottomline: it's easy to forget these are on and drain the battery even when not using. See More
The touch pads are awkwardly positioned, which makes it easy to miss the pad on the first tap. The main controls (pause/forward/back) aren't customizeable, and are overlapping: one/two/three taps, so if you miss the pad, instead of restarting the track, you'll be going forward or pausing your music. I've gotten better at it over time, but it's still a frustrating experience. Head gestures are an option, but they can be a little too sensitive - looking both ways before crossing the street can cause a track switch. See More
Does what it says on the tin - listen to music while still being able to hear your surroundings. Great when I need them, but they don't replace my other ear phones, since on my commute and in the office I usually want to block out other sound. Took a while to get used to, since they felt too loose at first, but now I find them more comfortable than my other earbuds - like wearing earrings instead of ear plugs. The touch controls and head gestures are both pretty bad, though. Hoping they improve with updates. See More
