Have bought one for each of my team.
Firstly I read a lot of reviews before purchasing these headphones and was a little concerned about some of the negative points that some people had mentioned . I can now confirm that all of the following points seem to be completely untrue .
1)Music drops in and out ? NO it does not , I have been using these for over 2 weeks every day at the gym and out on runs and definitely NO lose of music .
2)They are complicated to adjust ? NO they are the most easiest set of headphones to adjust and they sit comfortably in your ear and they do not fall out .
3)The control buttons are hard to use ? NO the buttons are easy to use and are raised so you can fell them with you finger .
One of the best things about these headphones is you can check how long is left on the battery by pressing the on button . Also when it gets low you get a recorded voice telling you how long is left and that you need to recharge your headphones .
I hope this review has helped you make up your mind about buying a set of these .I can not recommend them more highly and for so many reasons like great sound quality , extremely comfortable , light weight , and great value for money .
I have had a set of these for some years, using them pretty well every day to listen to internet radio in the early mornings (so as not to disturb the neighbours). I only ordered a new set because the plastic casing was starting to go in various places, and there's only so much I can do with gaffer tape. They've served me well, not least because they hang on a loop over the ear, so I don't have to worry about the speakers dropping out of my funny-shaped ear canals. Sound quality is fine for what I want; and set-up with three different sorts of Bluetooth hardware/software was no problem at all.
The battery life is astonishing, up to 7 hours of use, the longest I have used for any sport Bluetooth earphones. The charge up time is also very quick.
The buttons on the side are large and easy to press, they are also multi function, quick press/press and hold. The play/pause button on the right ear can sometimes accidentally be pressed when adjusting the fit, but it is a minor flaw.
The call sound quality is as expected and no issues at all.
- Ability to change tracks on the earphone
- Long battery life
- Quite chunky
- Only 1 rubber earbud
Phone connects and will stay connected whilst talking, but drops out after 15-20 mins of being connected, and won't reconnect without me switching off phone and headset.
Stereo audio is good quality, but after a while, starts to drop out frequently - I've had 7 or 8 total drops in sound in 10 seconds, and after each drop, comes back at a different pitch.
If they were a £20 pair, I'd be fairly relaxed about the issues, but for a £50 pair of headphones from a reputable company, I'm really disappointed.
Reception not great either unless phone on your arm [rather than in your pocket for instance].
This is the second pair of BT headphones I've bought and by far the best and most comfortable.
I have small ears and the grommits/plugs sit well and the adjustable ear loops are a good fit. I went for a run and had no issues with them staying on.
I only use them for music, not phone calls, and have found the range and clarity quite good.
I have read other reviews where the person had discomfort while wearing glasses. I haven't had too much of an issue as I mostly use them for running, but sitting at the computer with glasses on I've started to notice a little pain, but this was after wearing them most of the day.
Controls are a little bothersome as require a fair bit of pressure when holding the buttons down for the secondary functions (skip tracks etc).
Overall I'm happy with my set.
I use this for listening to music and taking calls on my iPhone 4.
Music: music quality is very good however the louder the volume level, the more distortion arises. The headphones do however go extremely loud in case you do want to blow the ear drums out of your head!
Talking: In calls, hearing the person on the other end is fine however as the microphone is on only one of the ear pieces and quite a way away from your mouth, I have had complaints of a lot of background noise. (7.5 out of 10 if 10 is using the apple headphones or none at all). Also works with FaceTime, radio apps and game apps.
Comfort: In concept its great driving without a headphone wire getting tangled around the steering wheel and strangling me to death whilst my phone is docked on my windshield - HOWEVER - the headphones are a bit uncomfortable. This is the biggest downfall for me in the product!! They fit nicely IN the ear however as I wear glasses, the headphones dig the frames into the area behind my ears. Ouch..
Also, the adjoining wire [between both headphone ends] is pretty awkward behind your neck when wearing anything with a collar. As the length of the wire is not adjustable its a case of tucking it under the neck line of your clothes or leaving it relatively uncomfortably over the collar.
Connectivity: The device connects VERY quickly to the iPhone however you can't be in a separate room without disconnection.
Controls: The controls work well however the only thing I would pick at would be that the volume up/down buttons are also the skip track buttons. When holding the respective buttons to skip tracks you need to hold down [with quite a lot of pressure] for apprx 3-4secs. Separate controls would've been ideal!
Overall it does do what its meant to well, however it isn't ergonomically well designed. Good purchase though if you want to avoid wires from head to phone and you don't wear glasses!!
gym and also the headphones look really professional.
This headset is very light on and extremely comfortable (as long as you don't mind something that hangs off your ears and pokes a little into them as well (which I don't) - which means you can wear it all day if required. It is also very easy to hook up with your device and very easy to use straight out of the box.. particularly because it has two buttons giving you total control on music and voice. Not to great in very windy conditions, but nevertheless, the best light-weight bluetooth headset I've used to date!
