cable for those times when you can't or don't want to go wireless, a USB
charging cable, and a black carrying pouch.

movement to give you tight, deep bass response.

Lithium-Ion rechargeable battery that charges via the supplied USB charging
cable. Charging time is approximately 2.5 hours. A fully-charged battery
provides approximately 17 hours of continuous music playback or communication
time, or up to 450 hours of standby time.
Detachable Cord: The headphones come with a 49"
cord that you can use when you wish to save battery power. In the passive mode,
you can enjoy an extended frequency response of 5-40kHz. (The range in Bluetooth
mode is 20-20kHz.) The tangle-free cord is terminated with a right-angled 3.5mm
miniplug that fits into most smart devices, even with a hard case.
