I've been using these now for over a week and I'm ready to give my analysis of these headphones.

They are a well made comfortable set of headphones with natural-sounding Bass down to its Sub-Bass extension with no added or synthetic sounding boost and the Midrange is also well represented and clean, the highs are clear and precise all the songs with great vocals I tested offered plenty of sibilance from its 40mm ironless drivers.

The features are numerous with ANC that rivals the big two and a very useful ambient mode that allows you to hear around you or concentration on just voices. Dual touch sensitive ear-cups and a auto pause and resume mode for when you take them off and put them back on.
The Flow has support for AAC , aptX , LDAC and BT 4.2 NFC connections ,with the he battery life on the Cleer Flow headphones coming in at 20 hours.

In my opinion a very unique and beautiful looking pair of feature rich headphones that check all the right boxes in Sound, Comfort and usefulness.

Just to add my $0.02, took a flyer as these were heavily discounted at datavision for $89.00. I'm not "blown away" by them but it's a nice package if you're looking for an affordable ANC headset. The ANC is good, although it suffers from unfortunate distortions based on head position.

The sound is bassier and boomier than I thought it would be based on reviews I saw (granted these are not heavily-reviewed). However, turning the ANC off (in my opinion) will make it more balanced. Definitely warm sounding and pleasant. Narrow soundstage.

Build quality is OK, although it suffers from the creaks and moans typical of a plastic headset. The design of the buttons could have been better thought out as they are in a common place to take them on/off or adjusting, resulting in unintentionally hit buttons. The touch controls seem responsive enough, but also result in accidental inputs. I'm unsure why manufacturers are implementing these types of controls as I find them inferior. Oh well.

Ambient mode is good enough, if not unnatural. I also think they are a fairly stable fit, but will not be suitable for running.

Overall, a pleasing package that is worth, in my opinion, the heavily discounted price you can get for them now.
