The headset come with a detachable, high-purity flat tangle-free audio cable so that you can also enjoy your music the good old-fashioned way, without needing to pair your devices.

BEST Headphones You Can Buy for the Money!Apr 17, 2014
By Lance Gross
"Reviews by Lance"
Watch Video Here: http://www.amazon.com/review/R1PHLOF63X9V11 This is a video review from my YouTube Channel
First to give you some context, I have tested and listened to many, many different bluetooth headphones such as: Sony MDR-1RBT, Beats, Parrot Zik, SoundBot SB240/SB270, Avantree Jogger/Hive/Audition, Bluedio Model R, AF32, Jabra REVO, Creative WP-350/WP-450, Motorola S305, Rokit Boost by Swage, GoGroove Headbands, Photive BTH3, Mpow and so on. So I have a real good idea of what you generally get sound, comfort and feature wise at different price points.
For the money, these are the best sounding headphones in the $100 and under category.
In my video review you'll see me talk about:
1. Sound Quality
3. Build Quality
If you want to hear a live sound leak test then refer to my original YouTube video as I wasn't able to keep the full length here.
These are the perfect all-purpose bluetooth pair of headphones that specialize in producing a very engaging listening experience. They also have loads of cool features such as staying paired to two different devices at the same time, being able to have two people listen to the same bluetooth device and the ability to use them as wired headphones! You can even fold them flat (as shown in video).
Initially, I found these headphones to be a little too clampy for me. Meaning, I could wear them for 2-3 hours before needing to give my head a rest. However, if you stretch them out (ie. over a pillow, etc.) then they get to be quite comfortable.
Bottom line, if someone gave me $100 to spend and I could only pick one pair of headphones, these would be the ones!
ENJOY the video!

Easily the best dual wired/bluetooth Headphones under $100May 02, 2014
I've had several headphones both bluetooth and wired. You usually get what you pay for. My great sounding $7 Panasonic RPHJE120S ear buds have been the exception. I wanted a pair of headphones I could use wirelessly around the house and wired while on plane rides. Any headphone (even bluetooth) sound their best while wired especially when used with a music device that doesn't have the Apt-X codec built in.
For under $100 these Creative WP-380 offer phenomenal value. The sound quality wired or bluetooth rivals $150-$200 pairs of headphones. You won't quite get Audio-Technica ATH-M50 type sound BUT you do get something fairly close to that. Vocals will sound very clear and you'll hear a lot of detail in the voice. Bass is a little pronounced which I prefer but doesn't overpower and isn't muddy. Highs are pronounced as well but can sound a tiny bit metallic on violin or other high pitched instruments (very minor complaint).
I've read some complaints about sound leakage. These are On Ear not Over The Ear headphones. They won't seal up the sound as well as Over the Ear but they really leak far less than other On Ear brands I've tried. At 50-70% volume there is hardly any leak and even at 100% there is only minor sound leakage compared to other brands. I can listen to these at 70% volume on a plane and the person next to me won't hear a thing unless they put their ear 1 inch from my headphones.
It's hard to get more value for the money and for having the flexibility to go wired or wireless you can't go wrong with this set. Battery life is good for around 10-12 hours depending on how much idle time there is between turning them off. Range is good at 30-40 ft. (unless there are 5 walls between you). The flat 2.5mm to 3.5mm headphone cable included with these is very premium and looks and sounds excellent. These fit snug at first but loosen up a bit over 5-6 days of use. If they're too tight for you just stretch them over 1-2 pillows overnight. Most importantly if you sweat while wearing these let them dry overnight before attempting to charge them so you don't burn them out. Hope this helps you decide.
Edit: May 8, 2014 - I just learned that if you double tap the multifunction button (phone symbol) a female voice will tell you how much battery life is left! Very sweet feature.

Great Features and SoundFeb 18, 2014
I wanted to wait until I had used these headphones for awhile, although I have been impressed about them from day one. Great sound, compact and functional. I have tried them with my HTC One and Nexus 7, simultaneously and they performed very well. I was watching Netflix on my tablet and received a phone call while being connected to the two devices and was impressed, again. The person I had the phone conversation with said my voice was clear and audible. I would definitely recommend the Creative WP-380s to others. The WP-380s are good for people who want versatility without sacrificing sound quality. They were worth the wait, since they were introduced back in September or October and suddenly became available in January in the U.S. I think Creative and Amazon are going to sell a lot of these because the price is right for the design, quality and versatility you receive from the bluetooth headphones.

Good Sounds ...May 15, 2014
One thing that I really like about these headphones is that the quality of sound, highs and lows, are very rich and dynamic. It depends on your device they are hooked up to. When I had them hooked up to my PC listening to music, the sound was just OK, but when I hooked them up to my MP3 player, Wow! Big difference. The Bluetooth worked very well for me as well. Battery life was good and took only a short time to charge up. They did get a little tight on my head after several hours of use, but I found that to be a minor issue. I found it did take a little time getting use to the button functions and their location, but, overall, I really like these headphones and would recommend.

Great HeadphonesAug 28, 2014
Great headphones. Sound is fantastic. I really like the buttons on the side of the right headphone which allows you to remotely pause, advance, etc your music playlist as well as control volume.
Batteries hold charge for a long time.
My only disappointment is that I enjoy listening to music through headphones when I'm trying to fall asleep at night. When connected to Bluetooth, there is an annoying blue light that flashes on the right side of the headphones. It is bright enough to annoy my wife because it flashes on her. So I had to tape a piece of black electrical tape over the light.
Other than that minor annoyance, these headphones are fantastic.
