The Wireless Insignia NS-CAHBTOE01 over the ear headphones are a great choice for just about anyone in the market for a great sounding pair of headphones with an affordable price tag. Customers are amazed by how such a cheap pair of headphones can feature such a great sound. Whether you are looking for something to wear to the office for your business calls or you need something for your long commutes these headphones will be a great choice for you.
These headphones, however, might not be the best product to use for those who are looking for something to wear on their runs or in the gym. The bulkiness of the headset will most likely get in the way of your workouts and has a good chance of falling off of your head while you are running, not to mention the padding on the earcups might not withstand the large amounts of sweat that it will come in contact with while you are exercising in them. If you are looking for something to wear for your active lifestyle then there are certainly better options available.
Customers can take advantage of the built-in microphone, allowing them to experience hands-free calling. Whether you are on the phone a lot in the office, or just want to make your personal calls while you are out and about, these headphones offer you the ability to take those calls without having to hold the phone to your ear. There are controls on the earcup that allow you to answer your phone calls and hang up when you are done, so you do not even have to remove your phone from your pocket if you do not want to.
The buttons on the earcup control more than just your phone calls, you will also have the ability to adjust the volume of what you are listening to, as well as skip your tracks and play/pause your music. The power button, which is also used as the pairing button, is housed on the headphones.
The wireless connection is the one most used, as they are after all Bluetooth headphones. Customers state that they are relatively easy to get synced and they will connect fairly quickly which is much appreciated by many customers. Once you get the initial connection your headset will remember and automatically connect to your device for future uses. The beauty is, you can connect to more than one device at a time. Many users prefer to have their phones connected so they can take phone calls if needed, but they will also connect to a computer, smartwatch, or mp3 player to listen to their music. It is easy and very convenient to be able to connect to two different devices at the same time.
The wired option for connectivity is mostly used as a backup option, as your headphones do not need to be charged if you are wearing them wired. There is a 3.5mm headphone jack on the headset, you simply plug one end of the AUX cord into that jack and the other into the headphone jack on the device you are listening to and you are good to go, easy as that.
The right earcup is where all of the button controls are located for ease of use for you when you are on the go. There is a central silver button that is used for your phone calls and to play and stop your music. There are four buttons located around that one for the rest of the controls you will need. The 3.5mm headphone jack is also located on this earcup. The word 'Insignia" is written in silver on the other ear cup.
To pair your headphones to your cell phone or another mp3 player you simply press and hold the power button down for a few seconds, until you see the LED light blink red and blue. You will select these headphones from your devices Bluetooth menu. If it asks for a password you will type in 0000, but it should not ask for this information. From there you are good to go. Once you establish the initial connection your headphones will remember your device and connect to it automatically in the future.
Using the controls on the side of the earcup are also very user-friendly and fairly self-explanatory. The middle, a silver button has a picture of a phone and the play/pause symbols on it, that is the button that you will use to answer and hang up your phone calls and stop and play your music. Around that middle button, there are four additional ones, the right and left ones are simply arrows while the top and bottom buttons have a plus and a minus which are used to adjust your volume and skip any tracks that you do not want to listen to at the moment.
If it does come to the point that you are out and you need a charge but aren't able to get to one, you can simply use these as a pair of wired headphones. You will receive a 3.5mm audio cable when you purchase these and that can be used to plug your headphones into your listening device and give you more time without the need of a battery.
