    "This is perfect for Windows 7 but since almost all computers come with Windows 10 now, an article for that would be better. Still, it's a good guide since the whole headphone connection process hasn't changed much in the last few versions of Windows."

    "It didn't give me a direct answer to my problem. The website was informative enough for me to learn some things, and gave me an idea on how to fix the problem on my own. So ultimately I fixed the problem, but this website wasn't a straightforward answer for my problem."

    "I bought this headphone last month and I liked it a great deal. The wireless worked so well I thought I was in the movie itself. Too bad my dog ate it last week and I am broke too boot. I like old school headphones and earbuds more. Cheaper and the dog leaves them alone."
