I definitely preferred this style of headphones over the fully wireless pods. They also fit really comfortably and the sound was great for both music and podcasts/audiobooks. However 6 months later they refuse to charge. I bought another pair to check to make sure the charger was working but even the new charge cable would not charge the old pair. Would like to make a warranty replacement here because they lasted less than 6 months but there is no option to do this on the Amazon order page, so this product can only get 2 stars max from me.
