Battery

Battery:

"The battery life is not impressive either at around only an hour or so."
_
"On the bad side, the battery life is not great so I always charge the battery before every use."

_
"That, although it preserves the battery, is quite frustrating!"
_
"I really enjoyed these until the battery gave out not even 2 months into owning these."
_
"Battery is good so I'm recharging it once a week using it for over an hour each day."

"They fit comfortably and the sound is perfect, if the reception was better and the battery life wasn't such an issue this would be 5 stars."

"I use these almost every day, battery life is fantastic and quality is great."

Button

Button:
"Volume not the best either, and the operation buttons are placed awkwardly"
_
"When battery gets low, it warns you repeatedly starting about 3 mins before it dies.3 buttons (volume up down, multifunction) are close together and hard to press the right one."
_
"One other annoying thing is they are hard to get on and off, you have to push and hold the button and that sometimes doesn't seem to work."
_
"These headphones have a strong bluetooth connection, they don't bother my ears or neck, but the only problem, kind of a big one though, is that the buttons on the ear pieces make loud clicking noises when you jog so I have to use my old bluetooth headset for jogging and these while I'm in the gym."
_
"Sound is good, but LED is hard to see, buttons are not easily found."
_
")o Poor implementation of buttons (difficult to turn on, volume up is correctly the front button, next track is incorrectly the back button)o Poor charging method (I have no confidence in the little sleeve thingy that is used for charging)o Charging cable is woefully too shorto Should come with a caseo Bad fit (it fits okay around the head and behind the ear, but the dangly part that ultimately goes in the ear doesn't provide enough resistance, therefore doesn't fit into the ears properly, and is likely a contributor to the poor audio quality)"
_
"It's comfortable to wear but the buttons stopped working only 3 weeks after I purchased it."
_
"The buttons works great and it never moves around even while doing intense cardio."
_
"The three buttons on the right side work well."
_
"They sound great and have the best side buttons on them."
_
"The headset buttons are perfect too."

Comfortable:
"This headphones have good sound (not the best), however I have two main complaints...1.-They are not very comfortable...it could be because of my glasses but I cant keep them on for as long as my other headphones.2.- On my Samsung SIII the signal is very week and it gets interrupted frequently, on my windows 7 laptop they work fine"

Design

Design:
"Because it's cheap, they have not tried other similar products to compare, and for me personally, lifting such as bench is important where this headset fails in design."
_
"The ear cushion is oddly designed to be a little flattened and so does not go into your ear, and easily comes out regardless of the headset being firmly on the outer ears."
_
"This was a huge selling point for me being that the circular design of earphones tends to not sit well in my ear and often times will fall out."
_
"stupid design, didn't work well, and had to return it because of a faulty integrated charger."
_
"The way the charging connection is designed looks like it could be the problem."
_
"Horrible product and bad charger design."
_
"the supports do not have enough stiffness or any adjustment to compensate for deviations from what I can only assume is the design base head of an anatomically perfect 99th percentile human; avoid"
_
"The headset is comfortable, even with glasses, I was concerned given it's 'rigid' design, but it fits well and comfotably."
_
"Being that the design was just as I wanted, I was satisfied, but the phone is also ranked as top 10 affordable earphones and has the additional functionalities of answering and ending calls, playing and pausing music, increasing the volume and maybe a few others."
_
"It was an exceptionally harsh environment, probably beyond the scope of their design but the seller was great with an immediate offer to replace refund."
_
"Was looking forward to using but the way the product charging mechanism is designed, it is difficult to make good connection to charge."

Light:
