I have used these headphones for over a year, both for listening to my ipod touch (using the supplied connector), and for making and receiving phone calls. As these headphones can connect to multiple items (such as the ipod, mobile phone, laptop) it is very useful. For example, when I am listening to my ipod through the headphones and someone calls, the ipod pauses the music and I can answer the phone with one of the side buttons on the headphones. After the call is completed the ipod un-pauses the song and it continues to play. The headphones also have a skip forward and back button, along with a pause/play button and volume.
The headphones are very comfy for short periods of time (less than an hour), as they can begin to put pressure on your ears with extended usage. This is not much of a problem as they rest quite nicely around your neck if you need a break! The folding mechanism can sometimes trap and pull out hairs if you are not careful taking them off. There is a slightly delay due to the Bluetooth transmitting which means the audio is received about 0.5 seconds after is played on the ipod. When listening to music it is no trouble, but if you watch a film the lip synching is slightly out which can be quite annoying.
The battery life on these headphones is excellent, when turned off you can leave them in a drawer for months and they are ready to go without a charge! Many Bluetooth headsets do not hold a charge very well in my opinion
