Great little headphones going on 3 (updated: 19) months of frequent use
Reviewed in the United States on May 9, 2018
I've had these since Jan 16, 2018, and wanted to wait a while to write about them. I update most of my reviews if my purchases continue working exceptionally well so I expect to be doing that with these even after a year. They are working just fabulously after four months still! My husband had a cheapie $5 bluetooth pair he bought to use when mowing the lawn, so I was able to compare the two and it's obvious some thought went into the making of these -- they're plastic but they're quite sturdy and feel well-made compared to his. Have had no trouble getting them to connect to my iPhone.
I treated the charging cord very carefully because I saw some other reviewers had trouble with it coming apart, but sadly even with care, the end that went into the headphones just plain broke off and separated from the wire. I wrote in on here to complain to the company (not even realizing that duh, I could use any one of the micro-usb cords from other devices to charge it) and they were super apologetic and said they would get another one in the mail asap to me. I thought they meant just the cord...lo and behold another whole headphones set showed up! Bless them. That's some customer service right there. I probably still won't use the charging cords since I know they're prone to weakness, but my hubby got free headphones out of the deal and doesn't have to use his uber-cheap pair anymore, haha!
Nobody is going to believe me but I actually have a pair of Beats Monster headphones and I like the iJoy better. They don't squeeze my head or smash my ears so viciously, lol, and the sound is quite comparable, in my music tastes anyway.
UPDATE 8/21/19 -- still working great, have not noticed any issues or decrease in charge, which I consider a bit freakish for anything over a year! I AM CAREFUL WITH THEM. I don't throw them in a tote bag or across the room or drop them down the stairs, so that probably explains part of why they and a lot of my other things last a long time. I don't use them every single day now, maybe four times a week for a few hours when playing games or watching movies on my Kindle while I don't want to listen to my hubby's boring fishing shows on tv, but it's still going strong. I have no idea where my original charging cord is, I just charge it with one of the multiple Kindle chargers I have sitting around. My hubs' pair also still works and charges great, he mostly uses it when mowing the lawn while also listening to boring fishing podcasts. Weirdo.
I'm probably the only one who noticed this but the blue light on it is BRIGHT AS HECK at night in a bedroom when you're an insomniac trying not to wake your significant other while watching youtube. Like seriously the blue light is brighter than my entire phone screen on dim. I had to stick a little piece of electric tape over it and even then I still get a glow. But that's what I get for being a night owl, I guess!
Still highly recommend, no complaints.
