I’m not a regular headphone user, preferring to listen to music over my home audio system. I got these for my office (currently working from home so unable to use them there) and air traveling (also not doing currently). However, I’m really in love with the sound, which is much different from speaker listening. I listen mostly to classical and jazz. The headphone sounds best when listening to intimate pieces played by smaller groups (chamber, small jazz bands). The sounds of Yo-Yo Ma’s cello, Mingus’s base, and Jessye Norman’s voice singing Poulenc songs soar and are crystal clear. The music sounds natural, neutral if a bit warm and lively. I’d describe their overall character as musical. The fact that I’m hearing all this via wireless connection just blows my mind. I’ve been playing with them for almost 2 weeks and it’s just getting better and better. I’m fortunate not to experience any buzzes, hisses that others have reported. There is complete silence when music isn’t playing—there is simply no noise floor, which is remarkable. I have them connected to my home system via the Avantree Oasis Plus and they connect seamlessly with no drop in sound when moving about my home (although there is an occasional loud clicking noise when I move too far from the base). The Avantree bt transmitter also works very well with my iMac but I prefer using it on my home system as I can stream and listen to the radio. The pairing is overall convenient, easy to use, and mostly unproblematic. The Panda is comfortable on my head and the ear padding is good but can understand why those with different head sizes (esp larger ones) may have difficulty. The headphone seems well made but I handle it carefully after having seen the photos of breakage on the band. The headphone is not ANC but that's a plus in my book as ANC means degradation in sound; however, it keeps external sound out extremely well. Will keep updating this review and wonder if the headphone will remain unproblematic when connecting via my iPhone when I’m back at work. But for now, I’m very happy and am quite smitten with this incredible bluetooth headphone. It’s allowed me to re-experience my music collection in a more intimate way.
Would recommend to a friend.
