The Satellite are good but not great.

Blue’s Satellite headphones may look good and sound ok, but they’re not as easy to use or as comfortable as they need to be.

Blue Satellite headphones are worth the price, but they cater to a specific type of audiophile music fan. If you prefer to listen to music on vinyl, you probably fit into this category and will definitely appreciate the quality of sound that Satellite offers.
Comfort, longevity, and portability are key concerns when you're talking about a wireless headphone ostensibly designed for people on the go. The Satellites just don't quite get these things right.
For the price it's hard to recommend the Satellite Wireless headphones over other headphones in the price range, even if they do come with an amp built in and a second set of drivers specifically for active noise cancelling.
Its first attempt at wireless audio is rough in spots, downright frustrating in others, but delivers beautifully on the basics, which is more than can be said for a lot of companies on their first attempt.
This is a headphone that has it all: A built-in amp, dual speaker active noise canceling and wireless Bluetooth. They’re not cheap, but for what they cost, Blue has provided quite a bit in one package.
In any case, the Blue Satellite headphones are a good pair, and because of their high-quality audio and large number of features.
The Blue Satellite features two pairs of drivers and an audiophile amp built-in so users can enjoy better overall sound quality without the need to plug into a portable amp. We highly recommend the Blue Satellite for users that can afford it.
Foldable and easily stowed, the Satellites are Blue's best headphones to date, and aside from the small gripes, my favorite portable Bluetooth experience, too.
These on-ears do not feel cheap at all, ultimately making it money well spent if you can spare the extra change. If you think about everything Blue had to fit into the device itself, it’s actually pretty impressive how small it is overall.
With such strong audio performance, it's hard to say the headphones are absurdly overpriced, but they feel a tad expensive, and their audio capabilities far outshine their noise cancellation.
