narquespamley,

I just compared mine between Bluetooth and the auxiliary cable and they sound the same. I can hear audio from them from 15khz to 10hz via frequency generator just the same. That's probably the range of my hearing. Music also sounds the same too, with both inputs. I don't think the auxiliary cable circumvents the internal amplifier. The headphones have to be on and in the right mode to hear anything from the cable input, and they can still adjust the volume on both inputs.

I have a pair of these and I'm really happy with them. Before buying them I couldn't figure out if they worked while being charged or not. Just wanted to say that they can indeed be listened to over Bluetooth or the auxiliary cable while they're being charged, and they do last 20+ hours on a charge.

@narquespamley: yes, used mostly via bluetooth. I didn't notice much difference at all when used corded.

@freakoutboy: Was this with bluetooth? If so, that would confirm fears of a loss of high-end frequency response. Would be interesting if you also tried it with the aux cable. Thanks.

Had these and returned them after a few weeks. Sound is nothing but bass and some mids, no highs at all. Also started making a strange noise, sort of like a noise you would hear tuning in an AM radio station that would travel from the right to left channel every few minutes. Very faint, but noticeable. The only positive was the battery life, lasting about a week with usage of 5-6 hours per day.

I'm thinking about his as well. I had been using Monoprice for a long time for cables and the like the the thought that if they sucked, well, I only lost a few bucks. I decided to give them a go on a high value item: a 27" high definition monitor. I was holding my breath when I first used it, but I'm very happy with it. In this case, I'm willing to give these a go. The reviews are pretty good, and they are quite inexpensive for what you get.

The monitor I got, btw, is this one:

They make a cheaper one without the displayport or HDMI for $390.

I'm in for one. Reviews on product site are good, hoping for the best!

I'm so on the fence about these :S

These look interesting and decent value. Reviews are mostly positive and I've had good experience with all my monoprice purchases. But I'm reluctant to buy any bluetooth audio product without a good, explicit review of its performance and frequency response in wired vs. bluetooth mode from the same source. I've done this comparison with some bluetooth dongle type adapters and been uniformly disappointed with the thinness of the sound vs. direct connection from my phone.
