I bought the Moor MR002 Premium Edition (there is a difference to the "standard" edition) and a set of iCandy Freedom 180's. I bought the iCandy's purely because I thought that the Moor MR002's might not look quite "manly" enough for me to wear out (yes...I'm probably a bit vain like that, unfortunately) but I needn't have worried. As well as being very well built and sturdy, they also look very stylish once on and don't look too...girlie...at all, with quite a low profile for an "over ear" set of headphones. They fit snugly, even with my rather large head, and also fit well over a beanie hat, (although, I'm not sure if they'd fit over one with a full head of hair underneath, as I'm shaven quite close to the wood!) The set is very comfy to wear as the pads are very well cushioned (one of the differences with the "standard" edition) and there was no discomfort when wearing it for long periods (typically 5/6 hours so far). The sound quality of these headphones is also very good, with a consistently good range heard for all types of music, actually, what really surprised me was just how "punchy" the bass was for such a small set, and the volume was equally as impressive (one of my biggest issues with the iPhone 4s and many of the wired sets I have tried) with it being quite deafening at the top end of the scale without distortion. In fact, that leads me to my only criticism of the MR002 and it's not one easily overcome by most "over ear" sets, and that is the sound leakage. It's quite easy to hear what the person is listening to if your sat anywhere close, which may be an annoyance on public transport (although, with the amount of "chav's" quite openly playing their music out of the speaker of their phones at quite a high volume these days on public transport, even this is a mute point...in fact..some people may love the fact that you've at least attempted to keep the music to yourself!) All the controls work well and are laid out in an intuitive manner, so you won't go forgetting which button does what, when it's on your head and you can't see the controls. (on a side note...I found that you can activate Siri on iPhones by holding the "previous track" button for two seconds and can then send messages, get weather reports, or call someone, just by speaking normally....this isn't in the instructions!) and the mic is well placed for voice calls with a nice audio quality being heard on the set and by the person on the other end (don't know if there's any noise cancelling circuitry working it's magic here, but the person on the other end said it was very clear with virtually no background noise, which considering i was stood just outside a busy pub doorway, was quite an achievement) As for connecting, it really is easy, and once done, will automatically connect to your device when turned on next time (as long as bluetooth is still "on" on your device) The instructions say it will auto pair with up to 8 devices, I haven't tested this, but it connects to both my iPhones and my iPad easily, so I don't doubt this would be the case. The range on these headphones is another impressive point. Can't say that it is actually 10m but I can leave the phone on the table and walk to all rooms of the house and still receive excellent audio quality, it even works part way down the garden (it does drop out now and again though, I've found at distance, if someone operates the microwave, but maybe that's just my crappy microwave!) This may be because of the new and improved chipset that they have put in the new Premium edition headset (yet another difference to the "standard" edition) At this moment in time, I struggle to find anything not to like about this headset apart from the minor niggle raised above, which as stated, is a problem for nearly all "over the ear" headsets and nothing major in the slightest. I am absolutely loving mine at the minute and can't believe they only set me back £20. Just an awesome headset all told!
