    Not Impressed

    • Written by from Port Saint Lucie

    I bought these because I loved the idea that it would be hassle free and easy to use but they weren't. (1) I tried to sync them to my iPhone for FaceTime and couldn't no matter how much I troubleshot (2) The battery life drains pretty quickly - while trying to sync and troubleshoot them, it drained the battery life which left me with hardly any juice left before the first 3 hours of a 9 hour flight. If I could return them, I would. I couldn't believe that after spending so much money on these, I had to pick up a pair of conventional headphones from the airport electronics shop because I left mine at home. Totally disappointed at best.

    Such disappointment! And, I missed my 14Day return date!

    I agree with all the other honest reviews about the common issues with this product. — The perfectly designed headphones we all look for....and, that's still somewhat true: The shape is good, they are very capable of achieving an "awesome-secure fit", the multiple gel inserts are great for finding one that's most comfy for your ear size & shape, and the sound is really good(when it's happy & working)...See, that's when the Negatives come in. They're very picky headphones! They'll cut out even while my phone is right next to me, then if I look to another direction, or turn the wrong way. They have a little temper-tantrum by cutting in & out and in & out without any reason. – Oh! And, if I walk away from my phone for more than 5-6 feet! – NO range what`so ever! The FM radio sounds like an old AM radio, kinda like the one I used to play around with as a kid. I really wish I was being dramatic here, because I know it sounds that way. Sadly, I'm only sharing my honest truth. I've had these for a month or so now and I've tried. I have really tried to like them. These were my first pair where I spent a good amount of money on, looking for higher quality. I can honestly and easily say that I would compare them to $20-30 value bluetooth headset and classify them as a good, decent product & purchase, but only at that amount, because that's the class of headphones where they qualify, in my opinion.

    BT breaks up

    • Written by from Helsinki

    Have a pair of these, sound quality is excellent - however sound is breaking when looking moving the head to the sides or cars are going by. Don't know why.

    Double pairing is good, that I like and in the house they are ok - no skipping there.

    Ok when working

    • Written by from Germantown

    I was really excited to get these as I hate running with a cord. In the most part they worked fine as long as they were close to your bluetooth device while outside. Then they got temperamental prior to stop functioning all together. I think they lasted about 2 months to be generous. I haven't had the time to return them but would probably try the Jaybird next.

    Don't believe the hype

    • Written by from Tucson

    I purchased these headphones to use while running, mountain backing, and at the gym. 1. The bluetooth feature is shaky at best. Once connected if you turn your head left or right you can experience brief loss of signal with your iPhone. As for the iPhone, if you put in a sports band sleeve that could interrupt your signal also. The battery life is reasonable and the radio feature is good also. The band sticks to your neck and will dislodge your ear buds. The volume is perfect! You can hear your music, phone call, or whatever else you're linked to and still keep aware of the things around you. However, this product is not worth $99.95, I wouldn't take a chance on these for more that $50.00 dollars.

    Neat concept, not so neat sound quality.

    • Written by from Turlock

    I got these headphones for when I workout at the gym. The concept is great because it is a lot less troublesome when I use the machines or run but the sound quality isn't great. The base is non existent and the headphones themselves aren't that comfortable. Concept over comfort. I still use them but I wouldn't recommend them.

    Good sweat resistance, but very limited adjustment in fit

    • Written by from Cary

    I'm still looking for a really excellent sweat-proof set of bluetooth headphones. The Jabra sport have stood up well for me for about a year in terms of handling sweat from workouts, but they have significant negatives to them as well. One thing is the advertised battery run time is far off the mark in my experience. Right out of the box (from the Apple Store in Raleigh, NC) they were never good for more than about 90 minutes of play time per charge (I listen to audiobooks when exercising). They also seem to lose charge rapidly even when sitting powered off, so to get through a 60 minute workout, I need to be sure to charge them the night before.

    Second big negative is the fit. If they fit you, great, but since they have basically no adjustment at all, other than ear piece size, they are more likely not to fit well for most people. They tend to sit away from my skull at the back and ride too high, which causes them to want to pop out of my ears with only a little movement, so I constantly have to reach up and nudge them back into position throughout a workout.

    So in summary, these are amongst the most sweat-proof BT headphones I've tried in the past two years, but they fail to my mind primarily in that they simply cannot be adjusted enough to fit well and securely. And the battery life is disappointing. I do not recommend these. In fact, despite their awkward appearance, I thus far much prefer my Motorola S-11 Flex HD headphones instead, which actually fit very securely and comfortably, but may not be quite as robust long-term with regard to resisting the effects of sweat (so not perfect either).

    Not worth $99

    • Written by from Calgary

    Lots of static or skipping when paired with my iPhone 5s, support says to try moving the iPhone to my right side but I'm used to carrying it in my left pocket.

    Sounds tinny also.
