Activities

The Insignia NS-CAHBTOE01 Bluetooth Headphones are perfect for a lot of activities. Whether you are looking for something to wear on your long commutes or you are looking for a decent pair of wireless headphones to wear for personal or business phone calls then these will have you covered. The super comfortable headphones have a built-in microphone and in-line controls so you can take phone calls or control your music without even having to take your phone out of your pocket which many customers appreciate.

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.

Basic Features

There are a few of the more basic headphone features incorporated into the Insignia NS-CAHBTOE01 Bluetooth Headphones for customers to take advantage of. These headphones can connect to your phone, or other smart devices, through a wireless Bluetooth connection with a range of about 30 feet. If you are out and about and the battery dies on you, you will also have the option of connecting your headphones to your device with a 3.5mm AUX cord, plugging one end into the headset and the other into the standard headphone jack on your device. This is great for those users who do not have time to get their headphones charged, as it allows them to still be able to listen to their music.

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.

Advanced Features

The Insignia NS-CAHBTOE01 Bluetooth over the ear headphones are a more basic product and as such, they do not really have a lot of advanced features available to users. One feature that you have available to you is the fact that you can connect to more than one device at a time. Many wireless headphones on the market right now do not offer this feature so customers can appreciate that these ones do. Some customers prefer to connect their headphones to their cell phones, strictly for phone calls, and have them connected to their computer or another device to listen to their music. You can do that with this product. They will transition seamlessly between your music and phone calls, jumping from one device to the other as you need.

Connectivity

The great part of the Insignia NS-CAHBTOE01 wireless headphones is the fact that there are two different ways you can connect these to your device. You can choose to connect wirelessly, through a Bluetooth connection, or you can choose to have a wired connection, using a 3.5mm AUX cord.

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.

They are an over the ear design so you do not have to worry about how well they are going to fit inside of your ears. The headband is adjustable for a more customizable fit that will be great for a wider variety of wearers. There are a few customers who commented that they were a bit small and tight on their heads, but not too many had this complaint. The earcups themselves are made with foam cushioning to ensure you have ideal comfort that will last you for extended periods of time.

The Insignia NS-CAHBTOE01 wireless headphones have a very plain and simple over the ear design, nothing too fancy or flashy for them. They are only available in black, but that does not seem to be a deal breaker for any of the customers purchasing them.

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.

Durability

There are some mixed reviews when it comes to the durability of the Insignia NS-CAHBTOE01 over the ear headphones. Most customers can agree that they can withstand a lot of abuse and they tend to last a good amount of time, especially given how little they cost to purchase. There were a few customers who complained that they are made cheaply and tend to break rather quickly. They are made using plastic and faux leather which can break and scratch rather quickly. There are some customers who like to wear these to the gym or out on the run, which is not really recommended, and they have mentioned the materials around the earcup do not stand up too well to the moisture from their sweat while they are working out. Again, however, for the most part, customers are happy with the longevity of these headphones and have no complaints in the durability department.
