I've had my pink pair for nine months and counting, and I'm never going back to traditional wired buds. In fact, all I can tolerate now is this short wrap-around-the-neck wire! The noise reduction isn't 100%, but it blocks pretty much everything at the office (but if someone talks to me, I won't be startled lol) *and* a dang impressive level of noise on my very loud subway commute to and from work, so I never have to blast my music at an uncomfortably high volume. Also, they blow first-edition AirPods out of the water in terms of noise reduction *and* are wayyyy cheaper, just sayin'. Plus, each charge gives you eight hours of talk/music time, and they only take an hour or two to fully charge. They also have magnetic backs, so they can snap together when you're not using them.
Promising review: "Dude. Want some bang for your buck? At $20-$30 cheaper than your basic wireless Sonys, you can’t beat this. I dare say these sound bettter than the Sony ones! I’m a serious audiophile. I don’t mess around with bad sound. These are every bit worth the price. Sound quality is excellent. I tested it on some bass-heavy tracks and noticed the high end was still very well defined. If your considering buying those, don’t doubt yourself. You will be well satisfied. Zero remorse." —Amazon Customer
