Many of the components of the headphones are made using aluminum and the headset is designed with ear cans that fold flat for a comfortable around the neck resting position. The headset also has a detachable noise-canceling microphone.

The tip of the microphone glows red when it's muted making it easy to tell if the mic is on or off at a glance. The headphones also have on ear controls for volume, Dolby settings, and mute.

When the microphone is attached, the headset can be used to make phone calls on many smart devices including the iPhone, Windows Phone 8 devices, and others. The headset is offered with a desktop stand and is available in matte black, gloss black, gloss white, and gloss red colors.
