“These headphones are great! They are comfortable, the sound quality is fantastic (I don’t have to have the volume on the computer very high to hear clearly) and the mute option on the headphones has saved me many times (if I’m teaching online and I need to cough or if my child comes yelling into the room…I just hit the mute button and problem solved). I recommend these headphones if you’re looking for comfort, reliability and practicality.”
