It&#39;s the kind of thing we&#39;d expect to be incorporated into the headphone design, but at least when you&#39;re wearing them you won&#39;t have to look at it.</p> <p>Fortunately the performance makes up for it. There&#39;s a wireless sound of casual authority right across 
the frequency range: organised, hefty and detailed. These are not noise-cancelling cans but the design is sufficient to block out most of the daily hubbub you&#39;re likely to encounter.</p> <p>On top of that excellent sound quality there&#39;s a level of comfort that makes a 3-hour listening session a real pleasure.</p> <p>This is Bluetooth headphones done right.
