Battery

Battery:
"My only big complaint is the battery life."

"I understand it is trying to save battery life, but not so good for a live show."
_
"Battery life seems to be a little inconsistent."
_
"I keep mine plug into the headphones when not using - after charging) putting them in the case after each use seems a bit of a pain in the arse- and the case isn't something you can strap to i. e. there are no lanyard holes to secure it for travel etc.....Motorola S805 comparision - (Bluetooth) has not quite as good sound- but battery life is about 14 hours on the S805 and all the controls work - and you can buy new off ebay for not much $Ok to have- but if I had to pick between the two - I would say the S805 are better regardless of price."
_
"It does that well, feels comfortable for a good period of time but where it fails is in the performance time on the battery."

"These headphones have an amazing battery life and durability is a huge part of these headphones."

"The battery and range is great."
_
"battery life is average, availability of a charger is a plus (replacing the need for batteries).sound quality is great, strong base, perfectly equalized."

"Things to be aware of: headphones are big around the neck can become irritating, volume and bass boost button doesn't work when wired, to get the full effect don't listen to low quality mp3's you will notice,"
_
"For the Wireless technology yeah i love it, the crystal clear sound it's just beautiful, no need Bluetooth just plug in the remote wireless adapter and enjoy the lossness audio quality ;)Just 1 problem it's about the backward and forward button..."
_
"Only negative the fast forward and rewind button does not function at all."
_
"The only dislike I've found, is that the fast forward backward buttons Doesn't actually work."
_
"The plus and minus you see on the side of headphone is the button, because of their small size they are at times hard to find and and their usefulness is further diminished because even when you do press them they don't always work, you have to make sure you pressed them down well enough for the function to activate."
_
"Everything went well until I tried to use the buttons on the side(Skip and rewind) THEY DON'T WORK!"
_
"Since I bought that I use it for may be one month or more .Pros are the design the durability and that is handy .The cons are the buttons of switching the music titles do not work."
_
"I expected to be able to use the buttons on the headphone , but they didn't work."
_
"The skip buttons does not work but I'm still satisfied."
_
"A convenient feature of the headphones is that the volume and the fast forward rewind buttons are integrated right into the headphones for easy access."

"The charger was not correct and some of the cords were missing."

_
"Negatives; Fragile, flimsy connectors for charging, too tight, hurts your ears after about an hour, bad sound, turns off to quickly, NO ADVERTISED RANGE!"
_
"These headphones were amazing but about a month into owning them, the charging component broke and I was lost."
_
"Either battery pack discharged will stop usage without being able to run while charging."
_
"(It's pretty nifty when you need to charge 2 other micro USB charged devices as well)All that said, I would not pay the original price for these which is over $250."
_
"Easy to use, easy to charge, last a long time on a charge, just find them to be just a bit too heavy?"
_
"It will not hold a charge but the headphones work great when being used when the blue wires are plugged in (and the wireless control when steady plugged in!"

_
"So while having the ability to control the volume is appreciated, there are drawbacks there as well."
_
"It IS inconvenient that I can't use the on board controls wirelessly, and I'm taking one star off for that, but overall, they're the best headphones I've ever owned."
_
"The wire that comes with the unit to turn it into a wired headphone set is convenient, but I notice that in terms of the above problem with the controls, wiring them, makes it so that they don't work at all."
_
"could barely tell the bass was enhanced~ volume controls - work fine~ noise control - the muffle sound fairly well but not as much as others made it sound~ fit - they are very comfortable~ portability - comes with a heavy duty case but if you don't wanna carry it around you're out of luck."
_
"Wireless mode- good range, able to turn the volume up higher with the controls on the headphones."
_
"I love the controls on the ear piece because you can turn them up and down and power off."
_
"The sound quality is amazing, and I absolutely love the on board controls."
_
"Now one of the benefits of these headphones is the ability to control the volume from the headphones themselves, which is great."

Design

Design:

_
"They fit very,very comfortably and the design is more sleek."

"- POOR POOOR Quality (that's what you get for Chinese plastic - it is horrible quality plastic as well not even heavy duty)- The only metal pieces you'll find on them is the screws....the chrome rails are plastic- The wireless feature doesn't work through walls so unless you have a house that has a 50' room or you are outside these things are only good for if you are doing work and you need to move around in a small space without the tangling and annoyance of a cord (not for walking around your house unless your media device is in you're pocket)- These adjustments are plastic!"

Noise

Noise:
"- I don't think the skip song controls work on any phone...like ever made...ever...- Horrible noise cancellation isolation you can hear so much ambient noise- Sound quality is terrible for $400 headphones (why not buy Beats Pros which are like 10x better for that kind of money)- $400 for $50 of plasticPros: somewhat comfortable ear cups, wireless works easily, came with a hard shell case, alright sound when turned high volume"
_
"Overall it solves a problem of being able to watch TV in a noisy room without wires across the room, and not having to have the volume so high that my wife objects."
_
"Cons: Bass is not as good as expecting, very little noise cancelation, losses sound when running or playing sports with phone in pocket."
_
"Pros-wireless and can use a cable-very comfy-bass booster-everything sound clean and clearCons-passive noise cancelling is not the best."
_
"However, I found that the passive noise isolating system was not good enough for my purposes as I wanted to use these headphones to block out ambient noise."
_
"I use these head phones in a server room all day; the noise isolation is rather good and the sound quality is pretty amazing from the wired and wireless transmission."
_
"And had higher range of wireless then bluetooth with kleer technology and noise reduction that good and beats by Dre don't have nothing on theseJust because beats by Dre is popular don't mean nothing all about features and quality and these are worth it get you a pair"
_
"I work next to an airport so am able to test all of my headphone's noise isolation cancellation."

Price

Price:
"Since this is on sale, and its cheaper than any kind of beats, and it's not bad (actually very good), not that big of a difference with beats, and if your just looking for something great, not so expensive (I got it for $150), and wireless (or not), I seriously recommend this (only if it's still on discount, cuz the original price is way over my limit)."
_
"They sound horrible BUT they work great...I can answer calls and make calls with ease..You won't be able to do that with the SMS WirelessI think that for the price they should work perfect and they don't ...They do sell an adapter to be able to use the Next Previouse buttons but they don't work on my iPhone 5 and it's an additional $70.00My wife's Miikey wireless Rhythm Bluetooth headphone work much better."
_
"cons:price(obviously), gets dirty, battery could last longer, range sometimes is short especially through walls doors etc."
_
"Came one week late, right ear cup was broken, instantly returned them.... don't buy this overpriced junk unless you just have extra money to blow."
_
"Final verdict - If the price was 50 percent less these would be an easy 5 star recommendation, but at the current price point it is hard to look past the flaws with the wireless connection.4 Stars"
_
"(It's pretty nifty when you need to charge 2 other micro USB charged devices as well)All that said, I would not pay the original price for these which is over $250."

"In a week of use I can tell you that these headphones are quite nice, and I am overall satisfied with the purchase.3 pros and cons in my opinion:Pros1) Sound quality is good, I am not an audiophile but I can enjoy shows and movies with a full, clear sound.2) The system with the transmitter is really lossless, I haven't tried long distances but in the range that I needed (about 20 feet) it works just great."

_
"cons:price(obviously), gets dirty, battery could last longer, range sometimes is short especially through walls doors etc."

Sync

Sync:
"Work grate but sync dungle doesn't work well"
_
"A few times the sound just quit and the light on the headset that indicates being synced with the transmitter started flashing indicating the sync process failed."
_
"Happy with the sound quality, but that doesn't do any good if it won't stay in sync."
_
"It's confusing but the reality is that I have to hold the sync button down for 3 seconds every time I turn on the transmitter."
_
"Instead of choosing Bluetooth as a wireless technology (which is relatively mature and well-supported, but results in compressed music that loses detail), the SYNC relies on lossless Kleer technology which has the disadvantage of requiring a dongle, but the strong advantage of sounding just as pristine as if you used a cable."
_
"What i felt was missing i found in these SMS Syncs, the biggest difference and this is only MY opinion, The SMS have a higher capicity for the highs and the mids if that makes any sense..... i love hearing my hip-hop music with bass but alot of times the way the song is recorded doesnt allow you to hear it as loud as other songs."
_
"The SMS AUDIO SYNC by 50 Cent are perfect for tv."
_
"First off, I owned the Sync's for over a year so feel comfortable writing a knowledgable review."
_
"For the price I paid for the SYNC, I got a great deal."
_
"Really good quality and had no problem with them Bluetooth work great once it's synced, they are great fit around ears and comfortable"

Transmitter

Transmitter:
"The only real downside is the asynchronous chargetime for the transmitter and headphones."
_
"I thought there could have been signal lags in the audio, as many of these 3.5mm jack-based wireless transmitter have this problem."
_
"You also cannot forward song tracks without purchasing the additional 30 pin transmitter, that does you no good if you own any Apple products using a lightning cable (iPhone 5s or iPad 4th generation)."
_
"But what I am disappointed with even more is how often both the headset and transmitter need to be charged."
_
"The only problem I have with this product is the transmitter."
_
"It's weird because I can hold the transmitter in my hand and wave it around like a mad-man and it's fine, but just walking causes pops."
_
"The transmitter is clear sounding, and I can leave my phone anywhere in the gym and the sound won't get glitchy or anything no matter where I am."
_
"I am sure it's designed to optimize battery use both for headphones and transmitter.3) The head-strap spans a great deal of width, significantly less height, even when the adjustable extension is all the way out."
_
"They came in within the following weekend, they where almos as good as new, it's missing the cleaning cloth, but I already have one I won't deduct points fr that, but great headphones, the wireless transmitter isn't the strongest part, so take good care of that piece, but the wires is good but doesn't sound as it does wirelessly"
_
"The new ones don't have this feature from what I saw, and the transmitter which is no hassle at all makes for a noticeable increase in effective range its a shame they discontinued it."
_
"I'm just afraid because the transmitter keep going off while i'm listening to my music, but im in love with these headphones"

"In a week of use I can tell you that these headphones are quite nice, and I am overall satisfied with the purchase.3 pros and cons in my opinion:Pros1) Sound quality is good, I am not an audiophile but I can enjoy shows and movies with a full, clear sound.2) The system with the transmitter is really lossless, I haven't tried long distances but in the range that I needed (about 20 feet) it works just great."
_
"Well, I just received my Sync by 50 cent, this sure is a good headphone, I can hear clearly on every word in the movies I'm watching (I have had problem identifying words said in movies with a sony in-ear headphone) just that the volume is a little lower than the headphones I usually use (don't know if it's made like that purposely to prevent hearing damage) but even in low volume, I can hear every single word clear and nice~ FYI, that's when its wired, haven't try wireless, still charging."
_
"Also while in wireless mood the side of the headphones and resever have a blue flashing little which can be annoying during a movie."
_
"This feature is great for watching movies with friends and family OR for working on a project such as recording or mixing a musical track."
_
"No lag whatsoever, so no worries for movies and tv-shows.3) The headphones case is nice, solid and spacious, will allow you to bring these around without worrying about breaking them."
_
"Every sound from the movie was clearly heard perfectly, almost surround quality."
_
"Listening to movies was truly impressive!"
_
"Fully charged battery probably will go about 3-4 hours... so if you are planning on using it while listening to a movie or a long program.. LOL good luck."

Volume

"Things to be aware of: headphones are big around the neck can become irritating, volume and bass boost button doesn't work when wired, to get the full effect don't listen to low quality mp3's you will notice,"

_
"Bass quality is poor and on high volume there's an irritating rattle from the earpieces!"
_
"So while having the ability to control the volume is appreciated, there are drawbacks there as well."
_
"Unfortunately, combined with what I mentioned above, the volume increase and decrease that you get through the headphone control is not equivalent to what you'd get from the audio source."
_
"Volume does work, but not well, and bass boost worked."
_
"Good headphones they pack a lot of bass but if you have the volume up all the way some song will distort."
_
"While raising the volume to maybe 90% or the max produces a huge distortion (I mean both the headphone's volume and the device's volume, which is pretty insane."
_
"If you plug in your headphones you're able to but wireless you're only able to change the volume?"

Wireless

"I tried the wireless sport headphones and they were overpriced and not as comfortable as these."
_
"Blu Tooth Wireless Technology doesn't work very well."
_
"But I lost the dongle which is a bummer cuz it cant be wireless anymore (my fault) but I should suggest that it is compatible with bluetooth without the dongle so it helps copes for loss."
_
"I thought there could have been signal lags in the audio, as many of these 3.5mm jack-based wireless transmitter have this problem."
_
"These headphones just don't sound that great wired or wireless."
_
"(if anyone can help me with the wireless control issue that would be awesome, till than I am disappointed in a wireless product that does not work without always being plugged to work! )"
_
"I love the quality, wireless sound sounded the same as plugged in."
_
"For $100 give or take, these are a no brainier if you want a stylish pair of great wireless headphones."
_
"I use these head phones in a server room all day; the noise isolation is rather good and the sound quality is pretty amazing from the wired and wireless transmission."
_
"Love the RF wireless factor."
_
"Good buds but wireless needs a lil improvement"
