Since this a USB headset with a built in sound card there is a bit of installation required for using the headset. The bundled USB connecter must be connected to a free USB port, and it gets auto detected on Windows 7. You then need to install the bundled drivers, and you are almost set to start listening. Next up you need to switch on the headphones, and the lights will start up. I generally disable the lights to improve battery life though in reality the difference in battery life is negligible. After the headphone is paired with the USB dock the connection is live, and you are good to go. Once the battery is down you need to charge the battery of the headphone. To do that you need to use the bundled micro USB cable (thankfully no propriety cable) to connect to the PC. While charging you can also use the headphone normally like a wired phone (you still need the USB dock to be also connected as that is a sound card).

Battery life is rated around 16 hours and from experience I generally get that much battery life. For many however, 16 hours is not enough. Another issue is that the headphone doesn’t automatically turn off once your PC is powered down, so you might inadvertently leave it on overnight. That said charging the headphone is a simple procedure and the cable used isn’t propriety so honestly its not a big deal.

Comfort was pretty good as the headphones did not have a strong clamping power and the headphones themselves were pretty lightweight.
