You are paying only for the brand and hype. The bluetooth connection is crappy causing your to miss the first minute or so after connection. The sound is very choppy. I attend a lot of online seminars and once connected I have to wait as the connection dips in and out for the first few minutes before settling down. From hen on it is good. If I leave the seminal and reconnect after a break, it goes through the same choppy connection for the first few minutes again. Too frustrating for such a high priced item. I get better performance from less expensive headphones. No waiting, instant connection.
