Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Cable

Cable:
"My only complain is that the cable length is a bit shorter than your average earphones; however, It is not enough to take a star off since I have not had an issue with the shorter than the average cable."
_
"These ones feel flimsy and the cable is just long enough to be annoyingly tight when my phone is in my pocket on my morning walks."
_
"These don't seem to be the most durable - I expect the cord to fray or wear at the point where it connects to the ear piece itself."
_
"My only complaint is that the cord is a bit short for my taste, but it has not been an issue thus far."
_
"I have had the sport ear hook product from phillps before under the 3000 model for some reason they thought it would be a good idea to shorten the cable by about 8 inches making it frustrating to use when lifting, running, or biking."
_
"The cord doesn't knot and is easy to unravel."
_
"They have a nice long cord, I can keep it in my pocket and still reach my ears."
_
"Cord is the perfect length too - a common issue with others I've had! "
_
"The cord fits into the jack with a case on my phone which is nice."
_
"The clip they come with also worked nicely to secure the cable to my goggle strap."
_
"I do wish the cord was an inch or two longer, but otherwise these are great."

_
"While they did work, I found the fit to be comfortable, but I still can't recommend based on the incredibly short life span."

After 10 minutes of usage it does come up to 80% but never to 100% again...Mic: After the volume show up its symptoms, the mic stop working and the button as well...From my point of view, the product is very good right out of the box..."
