I bought these as an anniversary gift for my wife, as me being greedy already own 2 pairs (other brands). The first thing that hits you when you open the packet is the actual presentation and packaging - it is amazing - Apple like. Nest is the striking looks of the buds, definitely the best looking of all the sets we own. The pairing setup was ok but not great, but we got there eventually - this would be my criticism they were a bit touchy to set up. The actual sound quality is great though and they pair up ok now they've been initially set up.
