Sounds Amazing! (When Configured Correctly) Review by Henry
Quality

So yeah, these headphones are amazing. When I first got them, they were a lot smaller tan I expected them to be, but when I put them on, they fit perfectly. Anyways, when I first connected it to my phone (The Oneplus One), I noticed that they sounded really muffled. So, (luckily enough), the Oneplus One comes with a built in EQ function, which I took some time to tinker with, and I finally got a perfect fit. I also tried connecting this to my iPad, and although the muffled sound wasn't as bad, it still seemed noticeable.For headphones this cheap, I can't really complain because a quick EQ fix and they are some of the best sound Bluetooth headphones I've ever used (The Bluedio R+ still takes #1 however). But, one thing this thing is #1 on my list for is comfortability. They are downright the most comfortable headphones that I have. The cushion are very soft and don't feel cheap whatsoever. Anyways, just in case any of you guys also feel that these headphones are a bit muffled and want to see the settings that I used to offset it, I'm going to include a screenshot of my EQ settings that I have for these headphones. Overall, these headphones are amazing for the price and I wouldn't hesitate to buy another pair if the need arises. (Posted on 29/12/2014)

I love these headphones! Now I'm not gonna get all frilly or anything. I won't use all caps or excessive exclamation points (unless deemed necessary by me), I'm gonna tell you like it is. Fore-note: I was not hired to do this review. Promise. I got these headphones solely based on the excellent reviews that were on here and some videos that were posted as well (there are a good number who tell you how it is). Nobody else I know has heard of these headphones so I was really excited to get my hands these. I got mine in white. When you get the box, it's very unassuming. Once you open it, you get the manual, headphones wrapped up in plastic (not the kind that you have to pry open with alligator fangs), your charger and a wire to connect your headphones directly to your MP3 player. Along with a healthy amount of bubble wrap. Once you take out the headphones, (in white) you have the outside of the cups. On the right side, there are the controls (play pause, +-, skip and go back), as well as the microphone and charging port. On the left side, you have the headphone jack port. We'll get there soon. Silver lining the cups to the cushions and cushion. The cushions are rectangular and take up my whole ear (my ears are fairly normal sized). Padding up where the top of your head would support the headphones is super squishy (I didn't know any other word to describe it). Possibly an inch of padding just there and more than enough on the ears. The user manual looks thick and seems like it should be a lot of fine print, but it's actually only a couple of pages because they put it in 4 different languages. Yes. Four. Turning on (pressing and holding the pause/play button till you hear a sound) and pairing it (volume up/down buttons till you hear a sound) was extremely simple. Battery life is longer than my iPod and phone combined. I listen to music very heavily. When I'm walking, riding the bus, working, etc. pretty much everywhere I go. These are light on your head and very attractive to onlookers. Getting into the music quality, they're excellent. I play drums (haven't gotten a chance to play with them just yet), so I'm a qualified "bass head". However one family member of mine is a pianist and he looks for good highs and lows (something I don't quite get). He loves these headphones too. Not too bassy or anything for him, and he's very specific when it comes to music listening gear. You can pick up/hang up on calls too. I've read quite a few reviews on how the mic sounds like you're phone is 20 feet from you, which would be understandable cause the mic is by your ear, but for me the mic works perfectly fine. Now when your battery dies on your headphones before your iPod does, fear not! Just be sure to have that wire with you!!!! It'll help, I promise you. Just plug it in to your mp3 and the other side to your headphones, you're good to go. Even if you want to save up your battery, you can plug in that wire and the headphones automatically switch off and become a wired set. Pretty handy I tell you. There are four things that contribute to the 4/5 stars: 1) when using the headphones with the wire, since the controls for pausing, playing, volume up and down are on the headphones themselves, when your connected with a wire, or if your battery dies, you have to control all those via your mp3. Not much of a big deal, but I know some people care about that. Also, they should maybe add a control switch to toggle them to use or not. E.g.: when you're sleeping with them on (which is easy by the way), and you lay on the headphones wrong, your pillow can press all the buttons at once and it'll spazz. So maybe in the next iteration (If they have one). 2) the status light. It's unassumingly bright. My mom said it's like I'm signaling for airplanes when it flashes. Of course, it's not THAT bright, but if you're in a dark room, it illuminates quite a bit with those flashes. And I get kinda distracted with it at times but it's alright I'm easily distract-able (look a bird!) 3) the charger. When I first plugged in the charger part for the headphones, it was an extremely tight fit. So much so that it was a struggle to get it back out (the struggle was real). I immediately switched to a spare android charger that I had lying around and that works better for me. I'm afraid to use the charger given because wiggling it might cause the port to come loose. And that's not good. Of course, you have a one-year warranty with this thing, so if that happens, you can send it back to them. 4) leakage. Not many people touched on this. When I listen to music, I love my head vibrating with bass (told ya I was a bass head). My brother told me that he could hear it from where he was sitting (we were sitting about 5 feet away from each other). You can toggle this by playing around with the volume on the headphones themselves AND the volume of your mp3. All in all, I absolutely love these headphones. They're sleek, awesome music quality (no distortion), and extremely comfortable. They didn't skimp on the padding on the headband or the padding around the ears. I only took off one star for the 4 things because to me, two of those I can live with (the light and the controls). The other two can use some iterations (the charger and the leakage). But those are not necessarily problems to me. I can live with em. Hope you liked my review. I only review things I love. Have a good one! - W (Posted on 09/07/2014)
Great product for the money Review by Molly_Dog

December 14, 2014 Update It's been about six months since I purchased these headphones & I STILL love'em!! It's now becoming winter in Buffalo so I've encountered one drawback. That's that the overall size of these are too big for any of my hats to fit over when I wear them "normally". I've found though that I can invert the 'phones with the crossbar under my chin & that works better. Obviously, they don't feel as stable this way but it beats the pee-dog-pooey out of earbuds. Otherwise, I haven't noticed any degradation in sound quality at all. I've been slowly converting my vinyl collection over to digital and, in listening to stuff I haven't heard in decades, I'm hearing parts I've never heard before. Even songs I thought I knew like the back of my hand. It's just amazing. Battery life seems to be eternal. I'm not walking for as long a time as usual, of course. The recent ice & snow make walking more than just a little dangerous, especially for someone who has already broken his leg twice in four different places. But, my point is, I can't remember the last time I placed these on the charger. I use them quite often to watch movies or listen to music on my PC with the 3.5 mm cord, which doesn't drain the batteries, but they don't seem to bleed off the charge either. That's amazing to me. There are no signs of anything coming loose or disconnected as I saw a few others mention. Again, I probably don't use mine as much as others might--Maybe 1-2 hours daily. They still feel as solid as when I first took them out of the box. I still have a little difficulty with the controls, though. Sometimes they work flawlessly. Other times I just resort to using my phone for the controller. All in all, the positives far outweigh the minor negatives. Still a great value for great performance. These would be the perfect gift for anyone who really enjoys their A/V collection! Happy Holidays to all!!! ----- August 24, 2014 Update I've had these for over two months. I think I promised an update in my initial review so here it is: Every single day that goes by I'm still so happy I bought these headphones! I'm currently on vacation in the Rio Grande Valley of South Texas visiting my brother who is battling colon cancer. My headphones made the long trip down far beyond simply bearable. I'm still astonished at the sound quality. I listen to an eclectic mix of music. Godsmack to Mannheim Steamroller to John Prine to Metallica to Dan Fogelberg to Herb Alpert to Spyro Gyra to Macklemore & Ryan Lewis. My normal "reference" system is my PC which is equipped with an M-Audio Audiophile 2496 card and my Klipsch ProMedia 4.1 400 watt multimedia speaker system. After over 15 years the surrounds on the sub speakers bit the dust and I have not had the time to repair them. The August headphones have very nicely bridged the void. On "So Far Away" from Alan Parsons' "On Air" album I can hear perfectly all 4 voices of Christopher Cross' harmonies just as if I were listening to the ProMedia. Ditto Chip Davis' delicate high hat in the more intense passages of "Toccata" on "Fresh Aire III" and the "ch" sound of Lars Ulrich's electronic kick drum at the beginning of Metallica's "One" It's like every time I listen to any song I haven't heard in a while I hear stuff I haven't heard in years. We did a straight up comparison with my August phones and my brother's Bose corded headphones his wife got last year for half price for $99. It wasn't just me. He agreed that my headphones sounded far better than his. Midrange was more defined, bass was tighter & fuller, highs more clear & crisp.(I'm writing this on my S4 so I'll enter the Bose model # later) A charge seems to last forever....or far longer than my phone at the very least. My only complaints remain about the track and volume controls on the headset. Even after 2+ months I still struggle with them. Granted I've been Type I diabetic for 37 years & my fingertips have lost a lot of sensation but you'd think over time I could adjust but so far I'm still having problems. Minor issues though when compared to the positives. Don't know what else I can say to encourage you to try this product. I absolutely love it! No regrets whatsoever. I'd buy'em again in a heartbeat. ____________________ First off, one of the main selling points for me is the EP650's option of either wired or wireless operation. Since I do not have BT on my desktop PC, it's so nice to be able to just plug in a 3.5 mm cable. Product was very well packaged. Headphones come in a real box-not the impenetrable plastic bubble that is the bane of my existence. Product has a real manual, as well. The EP650 have a nice, solid feel to them. Yes, they're made of plastic but they feel solidly built. When I unfolded them they clicked resolutely into position. An honest to goodness *click*. I was worried when I saw the size & shape of the speakers because I have pretty big ears. I was pleased when they completely covered my ears, and did so comfortably. They are very nicely padded and they almost feel weightless. I had tried (& returned) a pair of Creative WP350 BT. They just never felt "right". One, they're "on-ear" where the EP650 covers the ear. I also had to hold my head in a particular position otherwise the signal cut out. The August model feels really comfortable. They felt great from the get-go. The August headphones do get a little warm on the ears on hot days but it's a minor annoyance for me. I usually wear them for one to two hours every day and only on the hottest days have they been uncomfortable. I had no issues connecting up to the EP650 with my Galaxy S4. I have my player set to continue on Bluetooth connection so it's just power up & go. Very convenient. I've used the 3.5 mm cable on my Sony Bravia TV, too. There's no volume adjustment but it serves its purpose. The controls are a little disappointing although they work very well once you press them The main Power/Play/Pause/Source button has an indentation but neither the volume nor the track buttons have any distinguishing marks on them to aid your fingers. I have to fumble around a bit to achieve the desired result. I don't remember "noise cancelling" being listed as a feature but the August model definitely has that benefit. I noticed a good -10 dB drop in ambient sound when I put them on with no output. I was really surprised. Medium volume is plenty even while mowing the lawn. The sound quality is amazing. I listen to many different genres of music and have some favorites I use to test my equipment. With the EQ set flat, the EP650 is pretty balanced though a little heavy on the low end. I personally prefer that while some "purists" may not. In my normal setting I am able to hear all the key voices & instruments in all my test songs along with one or two I actually hadn't heard in a very long time. Battery life has been stellar after a couple weeks of owning the EP650. The initial charge took about 3 hours. I have often charged the headphones with an AC-USB adapter from another device with no issues. The built-in mic is a godsend, too. Every call I have made or received has been clear and the person on the other end could hear me perfectly. I don't game online so I cannot comment on that performance. So far, the EP650 has handled easily every single thing I have thrown at it music-wise & physically. I have dropped it a couple of times but it seems to be no worse for the wear. I'm very happy with the EP650 & recommend it to anyone who wants a good quality product that over-delivers for the price. (Posted on 06/07/2014)
If You Like Xtra Bass & VERY Comfortable Headphones You'll LOVE These! Review by Lance Gross "Reviews by Lance"
Quality
Value

There are so many choices when it comes to Bluetooth headphones that it can be hard to stand out from the crowd. These headphones by August definitely stand out both in terms of sound quality and comfort. FEATURES You can use these as wired headphones which is great. There are plenty of Bluetooth headphones that cost two and three times as much that don't offer that as a feature. Batter life is up to 10 hours but I found 8 to 8.5 hrs to be more realistic. Bluetooth range is 10 meters or 30 feet which is about right. These headphones do fold up which makes them great for portable use. You can also use these to make and receive phone calls. Call quality is good and you can easily hear whoever you're talking with. However, the person on the other line might hear a few pauses or a few muffled words. So this feature works great but it's just not crystal clear all the time. COMFORT One of the best features of these headphones is how comfortable they are. I've personally tested and used about 50 different headphones so I have a real good idea of what to expect comfort wise at different price points. These are one of the most comfortable headphones I've worn for the under $100 category and they're actually quite a bit more comfortable then many headphones I've used that cost three times as much and more! You do get some heat build up around the ears but not to the point of getting sweaty. GYM USE I found these do work good for gym use but they're just not as light on the head as dedicated sport Bluetooth headphones. But they bring such energy and life to your music that these headphones definitely help you to push your workouts harder! SOUND QUALITY These sound incredible considering they're less than $50. The thing to keep in mind is that they bring extra bass to your music and movies. If you're after a more natural sounding headphone then you'd want to consider something else. However, if you don't mind extra bass or better yet, prefer it then you'll love these! Genres of music that sound amazing on these would be anything along the lines of rap, hip-hop, dance, techno, house, electronic and so on. I wasn't able to include the sound leak test here because of time constraints but you can view the original here youtu.be/cd6Ih-fyQ1o VOLUME These should be loud enough for most people but if you need extra loud headphones they these might not be loud enough. The volume also can get louder using these as wired headphones instead of Bluetooth. SOUND ISOLATION These do a really nice job of blocking out surrounding noise, especially the louder you have your music. These work well on an airplane but especially on bus trips, or for use around an office. Just be careful because if you have your music turned up you may not be able to hear people that are trying to get your attention :) RECOMMENDATION These are one of the best headphones I've used under $50. They are easily more comfortable then many headphones costing twice as much or more. If you like having the presence of more bass in your music then you'll love these. Unless you have to have a brand name showing on your headphones, these are an incredible value that will bring a smile to your face over and over again :) (Posted on 17/06/2014)
Before You Consider Buying "Beats Audio"... August Wireless Audio, [#EP650B]--A Critical Revie Review by Andre Lawrence
Quality
Value
Price
I've been saying for the past couple of years, small, private companies are making great audio products that's on par with some of the biggest names in audio equipment and even better than the fashion/fad/fake audio companies. *** The biggest problem with "Bass [Heavy] headphones" is that midrange and higher audio levels are sacrificed for filters that emphasize/ distort a song along the bassline. Another fact is that bass headphones typically muddy instruments like drums so you essentially hear it at a certain level before it drops back off into distortion. With headphones like Beats Audio, the main audience is into Club, Alternative, Rap and Reggae. This is why this--August headset--is phenomenal. Listing to random cuts like Ice Cube's "No Vaseline" or LL's "Mama Said Knock You Out." Or even, Diana Ross' classic ballad-dance cut, "Love Hangover" sounds incredible. Love Hangover, in particular, shows how the headphone replicate a slow tempo with vocals and then jumps to a mid-tempo. The audio reproduction is excellent. *** Phone *** The set also has a wireless speaker for phone calls. The phone reception is also stellar. People on the other end didn't know I was not speaking into my cellphone. *** Audio-In Jack *** I plugged the headphones into my cd/ cassette deck and played a few tracks from The Choir of Vienna Hofburgkapelle. The range reproduced was pristine. This is one of the nicest, multi-purpose headphones I've seen in a long, long time. *** Pro's and Con's *** Pro's + Handsome, leather headphone + Audio quality is great for a consumer-grade headset + Frequency response range: 60 Hz to 20 KHz + Built in internal battery + Battery time 8.5 hours before recharging + Bluetooth 4.0 + Micro usb charge cord + 3.5mm adapter - None. There's no unrealistic expectation for a headphone that's under $40. This headphone reproduces bass-heavy music without losing the umph and very little distortion. If you like Beats Audio or are considering purchasing Beat, give these a run before your drop your credit card on the counter. 5 runaway stars. (Posted on 08/06/2014)
Decent headphones for price Review by Chelsea Barker

These are the first pair of Bluetooth headphones I have owned so I wasn't sure what to expect, but they had decent sound quality and were quite comfortable, and they synced with every device I tried them with. I was able to wear them for several hours at a time without really noticing them. I really did love these headphones! They cancelled out most noise and there was little no sound bleed even at higher volumes. I really thought these were the perfect headphones! I would leave a higher rating but today the headphones broke! As far as I can tell the little charger port came loose and fell into the headphones, so though the headphones still work they have become little more than a paper weight since I can no longer charge them. I've only owned these headphones for going on three months and have been very careful while using them so I'm not certain how they broke but fair warning to those who plan on buying these. Also, the cords that come with the headphones are AWFUL! Within a month the charger cord broke and would no longer charge and the following week the audio cord used for wired connection just stopped putting out any sound. So I hope you have an additional charger cord lying around (it uses the same cord as current android phones). Pros: Good sound quality comfortable fit easy to set up and sync little to no noise bleed decent range (but not the best) Cons: charger cord and audio cord broke quite easily charger port was not very durable (at ALL) (Posted on 16/02/2014)
Superb Sound and Quality Review by Julia B.

Just a great pair of headphones! Very comfortable, completely covers the ears and very soft. Feels expensive but it's not, great materials (soft matte black plastic with aluminum elements), controls are very simple and BlueTooth connects to the mobile device with no issues. Sound quality is superb! It's very hard to believe but it just sounds great and puts some wired headphones to shame (it comes with a cable incase you want to go wired). Even the wire and the charging USB feel like an expensive material. I've been looking for BlueTooth headphones for a while but most reviews aren't great and I wasn't planing on spending $300 on it. I did not however expect to get this great quality for this price (about $60). Highly recommend! (Posted on 08/12/2013)
Outstanding Bluetooth headphone with excellent sound and comfort Review by Zachary S. *Tech Reviewer*

The August EP650 Bluetooth Wireless Stereo Headphones is the best quality Bluetooth headphones I have plus some extra gestures. Box contents: -August EP650 Bluetooth 4.0 Wireless Stereo Headphones -Micro USB cable -Aux cable -User manual The comfort of the headphones is amazing. The pads are super soft and rest very comfortably on my head. The pads go on your ear not over your ears or around. The headphones have some noise cancelation but are not made for it. The headphones also have a thick cushion above your head. The sound quality is outstanding. I have beats solo HD's and they are close in sound quality and comfort as these but are 30% of the cost. The headphones have great bass, highs, lows, and go pretty loud too without distorting sound. I hear sounds in the song that I do not hear using Apples Earpods. That's amazing! The headphones also have the option to use an aux cable to play music to the headphones if your device does not have Bluetooth or you want to save battery. The headphones charge by micro USB. The control panel in on the right earphone which are labeled with an L and an R. You can play, pause, skip forward or back, change songs and answer/hang up on phone calls. It also has a built in microphone so your phone can be in your pocket when in a call. To top all that it has a working time of 10 hours! These are now my favorite headphones coming from beat solo HD. These headphones are a great price, have outstanding performance in terms of sound and comfort and Bluetooth 4.0. These headphones are practically a steal. Watch my video review. I was supplied a sample for test and evaluation, and I promised that my review is fair and honest. (Posted on 28/10/2013)
