If you're asking if it's worth it then imo, for that price it is.

The battery life is great, comfort is fine, they sound great (considering its wireless) and ANC is great as well. 

 

That said, my phone supports the SONY LDAT audio codec and I use that instead of AAC or whatever is the alternative, not sure how big of that difference makes in the sound quality as I haven't extensively tested that but from a short listening experience I couldn't really tell the difference.

I would only really look into buying higher end Bluetooth headphones if you absolutely can’t do wired.

Because around that price point is where you start to get into hardware that can really take advantage of media in higher qualities than Bluetooth can handle. 
Bluetooth 5.0 is 2mbps, around the 300-400$ mark for headphones on average is where high end formats become really an improvement over their more common counterparts, your DSD64 and 128 versus 48khz flacs for example. 
That’s also the point that Bluetooth is out of the question because these media formats are above the data throughput of Bluetooth, with DSD64 even being over 5mbps, 192khz 24 bit multi channel flacs being similar.

So it comes down to if you care about the audio quality or the wireless qualities. Because they’re good wireless headphones, in the aspects of being wireless headphones, light, comfortable, good battery life and good controls.

However if sound quality is a concern, they don’t sound as good as other wired headphones in the same price range, and if you’re playing media where you can really take advantage of headphones like that, Bluetooth is a limiting factor.
