Comfort:

Besides the stylish design, Nokia designers have sought convenience for the user. Putting the headset on is absolutely effortless, the soft rubber parts comfortably matching the shape of the ear. The clamp behind the back of the neck provides for the tight pressing of the speakers against the ears, thus making sure that the user will enjoy music rather than external noise. Securing is very stable, so there will be no problems at even abrupt jerks or when jogging. This is quite important in case you love listening to music while doing your morning set of exercises. Those who are used to wearing hats should also take into consideration the fact that BH-501 are made in such a way, so as not to be an obstacle to putting one on.

The weight of the headset is 68 grams and it is evenly distributed between both ears. We can testify to the fact that users will not feel any discomfort even after 2-3 hours of wearing.


Conclusion:

The stereo headphones offer a superb way of listening to one’s favorite tracks without disturbing by-standers. The more so when they are wireless – it is indeed a convenience beyond any comparison. BH-501 is a model from the medium line of the company, inferior in sound and functionality to BH-601, but considerably lighter and more comfortable to wear over longer periods of time.

Pros

  • An option to connect two devices simultaneously
  • Light weight

Cons

  • Very low quality for sound reproduction

These headphones make a decent set producing decent sound.. But they didn't last a month under normal usage. I didn't even abuse it in any way, no accidents, just normal usage. Bad buy. Pros: Decent Sound Cons: POOR Workmanship POOR Service Uncomfortable to use Signal easily affected by physical barriers No Music Player Controls Weak microphone Did I mention the poor workmanship?
