      Not very breathable ear cups so you'll heat up. Depends what you're doing but I'd say over ears in general are bad for gym

    is that good for kids?

      I just bought one specifically for the kids. Not sure how they'll fit.

          I got ch510 for $49 from Kogan, and Taotronics 085 $49 from Amazon.

          Bought the Sony WH-CH510 from Myer a few days ago, I am returning it. It feels like a cheap $24 headphones, no padding on the headband and it becomes really uncomfortable when you have it have it for long, mainly if you do not have a thick mass of hair on the head. I have been using it while watching movies in the evening, the sound with dialogue not so clear. The good part is the battery life, it is really amazing, but apart from that it fails ergonomically.

          •  

            @Bluering48: Cheers for the feedback, shame about the comfort issues. Any other concerns with the build quality apart from lack of headband padding?

            Options with USB-C are slim at present but that should improve soon hopefully.

            •  

              @Qbagger: Build quality feels like any cheap $30 headphones. After I have returned the Sony at Myer, I have bought the Sennheiser HD 350BT Headphones USB C connection for $133.47 at JBHIFI, amazon price matched. Of course the price is a bit more than double for what I paid the Sony, but I am 100% happy, I can follow those Youtube movies clearly, evey listening to music, there are not muddled sounds. Battery life apparently around 30 hours. Sometime, I guess it is better to spend a bit more and get the satisfaction that you are looking for.

              •  

                @Bluering48: They look great. Hopefully they will come sub $100 soon. Good get!

    These are like the Backbeat 500/505 that I got at half price (then $59.99) at JB years ago. The specs and physical design are almost identical, though the data sheet mentions an "EQ switch" for bass boost, which the 500/505 doesn't have. They'll be clearing these out, I'm guessing, because the Plantronics brand name is being retired (they're now called Poly).

    I can only go by the sound quality of the 500, but I'd rate it as excellent - very detailed, very musical, bass is solid but not overwhelming. Just all-round great headphones at the price point. Mic quality is above average for calls (which, being from a headset manufacturer, are handled well) and battery life is nice and long.

    Only down side is that the flexible plastic headband - the hard plastic bit above the cushioning - is prone to crack right down the middle, after which the drivers no longer make proper contact with your ears. I returned my 500s to JB for that and got a replacement, which has been fine - so I don't think it's inevitable, just possible.

    I ordered these as a spare, just in case. I mean, for 35 bucks, impossible to say no :)

      I had the 505s too. Same issue, headband cracked. Returned it under warranty, cracked again, returned again. They replaced with this model the second time. They're still going, so I think I've got my moneys worth all up. I would say the 505s were more comfortable than these, these seem to dig in after a while.

    •  

      Can you please tell me how well they stay on your head? I would be using these for gym and gardening.

      I had backbeat go 810 and had the same problem with the headband, Pita dealing with office works staff who accused me of breaking them. I actually loved the headphones otherwise, great sounding and features without breaking the bank, esp since I use them a lot to video conference. They even did multi device well, which my current xm3s don't. Anyone know if these do multi device?

      On a side note I used the super glue and backing soda trick to wel another old pair of headphones together and so far it's worked. Not sure if I would have been able to do the same on the ones I sent back but worth a try if you have a pair lying around

      •  

        Yes, they do multi device (2 can be paired at a time) - and they do it well. Plantronics' experience in Bluetooth stuff really shows with these models.

        I'm hoping that this 600 model (which came out in 2018, some years later than the 500/505) has addressed that headband problem. And yeah, when I returned my first pair to JB the first store I went to accused me of breaking them as well :) Second store was totally fine and even went to the trouble of finding a nearby store that still had stock for the replacement.

        Superglue and baking soda sounds like an interesting solution :D My 505s are still in one piece for now, but I'll have to look it up if the "split" happens again on those.

      •  

        +1 for the super glue and baking soda idea. OMG how did I not know about this. So many new repair opportunities.

    Would this be good for office use with Microsoft Teams?

    • +2 votes

      No, it will work, but the microphone picks up lots of background sounds. If you're at home by yourself it's probably fine, in an office environment, no good.

    Combined the Cashrewards $10 bonus with these, so $25 all up. Ripper bargain!

    Nice. Will make good garage headphones that I don’t care about much. Using XM4s gets a bit worrying at times

    Good for gaming?

    • +1 vote

      As long as you're playing wired and don't need the mic for gaming, they should compare reasonably well to anything else around this price.

      Reason being that the wireless latency of around 150ms would be a bit of a bummer for gaming and the mic seems to be Bluetooth-only (no way to plug it in otherwise).

    how's the sound compared to the best budget bt headset, the taotronics bh090?

  • +4 votes

    I've got a pair of these and really like them.

    Note they are not closed headphones, so they do allow quite some noise in. But this suits me, as I primarily use these in the office and I want to be able to hear if someone wants to get my attention.

    The sound quality is very decent, especially for the price. Not super bass heavy (though substantial enough for me), but the clarity is good and it sounds pretty clean to me.

    I find them quite comfortable also. They are very light too.

    •  

      Thank you for the info!

    Any recommendations which Bluetooth adapter to get (for desktop) if I want to connect bluetooth headsets to play games (mainly FPS)? I'm planning to buy Sony XM4 or Microsoft Surface 2 Headphones to use with my desktop and my work laptop.

    Planning for a full wireless setup with mouse and keyboard. Would appreciate any feedback.
    Razer BlackWidow V3 Pro - Yellow Switch ($190) - Connectivity via BT and Razer HyperSpeed, usb-c.
    Razer DeathAdder V2 Pro ($150ish) - Connectivity via BT and Razer HyperSpeed. Shame it's not usb-c.

    I procrastinated about buying it, and within minutes gone from my shopping cart.
    Not gutted though, I have a whole heap of headphones I need to be using right now

  •  

    My item arrived DOA. Such a piece of crap.

    •  

      I had to charge mine before they worked. But now I'm having battery problems :(

  •  

    just received these.

    they are alright for some basic wireless headphones

    esp for the price.

  •  

    just received them and wow, some of the people here must have some bad hearing as these sound quite awful for the price, don't recommend at all unless they're just for the kids, otherwise the audio quality is terrible for their RRP
