Our take on the Kenwood KH-CR500B by Crutchfield's Jeff Miller
Keep the "Kenwood head nod" going
Do you enjoy the sound coming from the Kenwood deck in your car? If you answered by nodding your head, the KH-CR500B in-ear headphones will make sure you do that all day. These well-constructed earbuds slide in to create a noise-isolating seal, so there's nothing between you and the deep, powerful thump of the bass. Highs and mids sound crisp and clean too. Plus Kenwood has included four pairs of ear tips — one pair specially made with memory foam — to ensure a secure, comfortable fit.
The headphones connectors wrap around the back of your head, and an inline remote lets you answer phone calls.
Unique cable with simple one-button remote
Listening to music on a smartphone is convenient, but sometimes you need to answer a phone call. You won't have to pull these earbuds out. On the flat, tangle-resistant cable, there's a one-button in-line remote control with a built-in microphone. Hit the button to answer the phone and take calls right through the headphones.
The cable itself has an interesting design. Rather than the typical "Y-shape" headphone cable, these 'phones feed a single cord to the left earbud. Then the cord that connects the left and right earbuds wraps around the back of your head, keeping it out of your way.

I don't have any information on which smart phones these headphones will work with 1 button remote/microphone that's on it. You should have no issues using them to listen to audio from any device with a headphone jack output. [ Paul Nov 23, 2015 ] Staff
