Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love them Purchased a couple of weeks ago and love them. It’s great that I can link them to my Alexa and iPhone app. Use them with both my phone and my keyboard and the sound is very responsive and full.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I wanted Comfortable, sound good, do what they're supposed to. What's not to like? Well the fact I keep accidentally pressing the voice assistant button only to be told it's not connected is a bit annoying. But this is a minor gripe and I will learn not to press it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great sounds but problematic Bought these and loved them straight away, but... The reason I bought them was for the Google assistant and guess what, it is patchy at best, then it just plain won't respond to any voice commands so pointless. Then for no reason it now randomly powers off and I have to turn it back on again only to await it powering down... If they sort the problems I would rate 4/5 but as the assistant was the only reason I bought it I'm less than impressed. Sorry guys.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great variety of apps and functions The Samsung TV was purchased to replace another four year old 4K TV whose sound Quality was abysmal and needed a Soundbar to improve the sound. The Samsung, apart from giving fantastic picture quality had a high of sound quality over the whole audio spectrum plus a teeth rattling bass if required and clear speech (Equaliser software built in) which has now made the soundbar redundant Bluetooth communication with my headphones was excellent and had quite long range around the House.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great Base, Great noise cancellation The headphones are good for the quick mover but fail because they disperse in high sounds. The touch command is very good but is very touch sensitive and sometimes hard to work when on a call. It is very good especially with noise cancelling. In my personal opinion I believe the headphones are better with a android especially the google pixel as google assistant is well treated with this. All in all the mic is good but at high volume could do with work.
