Rated 5 out of 5 by from I am surprised! I received these as a gift. Coming from using AirPod Pros on a daily basis I’m not normally a fan of corded headphones. With that said. Even if I paid the MSRP. I am very pleased with the sound quality. I was personally surprised from such an affordable set of headphones.

Date published: 2020-05-09
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Very uncomfortable to wear I bought these a week ago and here is what I've come to so far: Sound quality is mediocre, it has a lot of bass but it doesn't drown out the vocals or other instruments, volume is not that loud. The worst part about these is how tight they are, the earpads are not that soft and make my ears hurt after just 5 to 10 minutes of usage. I wore these for about an hour and my ears were super red and were hurting so much. Build quality is good, it looks stylish and doesnt feel like it's going to break if I stretch them too much.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from terrible they squeeze your head no matter how u adjust them and sound quality is that of a headset made back in 1995, i expected better more modern sound quality...they sound like someone playing music in a garage 2 miles away. tired to return it but they're return process is very tedious and requires you to print a shipping label and jump through several other hoops...i do not have a printer and there are no stores around me that print anything. so im stuck with it and i wasted 30$ :/

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst Headphone Stopped Working. Both speakers of the headphone stopped working after 11 months of use. First Speaker stopped working after 8 months and after 11 months another speaker stopped working. I think the problem is with wire. Don't buy. Cheap Product. No Warranty.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Unconfortable I bought it last month because I was looking for on phone to stay more comfortable to study for a long period. But, despite of the weight didn't was high, the format didn't fit good in my head and I felt it pressing my head giving me a signal that I would get a headache. I tried to change the position but was clear that wouldn't work. I would like to have one headphone because doctors orient that we should avoid the internal one.

TUNE500 ARE COMPATIBLE WITH PS4?

Asked by: wolf85
Hi there, yes the TUNE 500 can be hooked up to the wireless controller of your PS4, but it can only be used for listening to the PS4's audio but not for communicating with other players through the built-in mic. The mic is used only for phone calls when connected to a phone. For the audio to work, go to the Settings on the PS menu, then go to Devices, then select Audio Devices . After this, select output to Headphones. With your headphones plugged in, select "All Audio" and the audio should now be coming out of your headphones.
