FTC Disclosure

Life is complicated enough without getting into hotwater with federal agencies so: TAKE NOTE Many things I review I got at no charge in exchange for an honest review. Consider this as informing you that ALL things I review may have been gotten at no charge. Realistically about 60% but in order to keep things above board just assume that I got the stuff free. Words like, “sponsored,” “promotion,” “paid ad” or even just “ad” are clear ways to disclose that you’re being paid to share information and links so BE AWARE that some of what I write can be described as an AD by the government. BTW I will NEVER say a product is great, super or even acceptable if it isn't whether I got it free or NOT!

DS18 HDPBT Noise Isolating Over Ear Foldable Bluetooth Headphone with Mic and FM Radio


Overall I liked these headphones.  Initially I was not happy with the connectivity.  I first tried to connect to my Galaxy tablet and they would not connect.  Then I tried my Kindle Fire and they connected immediately.  Next I tried my S7 phone and it connected immediately.  I went back to the tablet and tried a few more times to connect and finally it connected. Not sure why there was an issue with the tablet. I had difficulty getting the headset to connect to the device I wanted to use.  After experimenting, it seemed to prefer to automatically connect to the Kindle and I had to distant myself from the Kindle to get any other device to connect.

I read some of the other reviews and was a bit surprised at the negativity regarding the FM reception.  I was not surprised when a station would get static as I moved around.  Considering all the metal 2x4 replacement studs, I am often surprised to get any radio reception.   I thought the FM aspect was acceptable.

The Sound quality through Bluetooth was fine, not exceptional but fine.   The headset was as comfortable as headsets get.  I have never found a pair, regardless of price, that I found comfortable for any length of time. 

Somebody must make a headset that can be controlled via a menu on your phone or device, I find the buttons on the headset to be impossible to use when I am wearing the headset.

The headset did not do well for making calls.  People complained they could not hear me.

Watching videos the headset did just fine.  Considering the  price, this headset is a decent value. 

If reviewing a product, it may have been received free of charge. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
