Battery

Battery:
"Battery not the greatest but overall acceptable."
_
"While they worked decently for about a month, the battery life wasn't all that great."
_
"I'm very disappointed because the long battery life, magnetic connection, and easy controls are awesome, but if I can't wear them then what good are they?"

"They always fall out of my ear or the sound quality is horrible or the battery doesnt last very long."
_
"Unfortunately, it does not have a battery life indicator."
_
"The battery life is excellent, I charge them once every 3-4 weeks."
_
"When the battery indicator shows that its half-full, its pretty much about ready to die at any second."
_
"They had good sound quality and better battery life than I could have hoped and I like that the remote had its own separate volume control from the phone."

"Apart from that I am disappointed with the bluetooth connectivity is bad."

"But it has it's times where it starts breaking up and gets annoying and it states that it has a 30ft Bluetooth range"
_
"Only negative is the bluetooth: does ok as distances, but when my phone's in my back pocket and I turn my body at all, the connection does a quick blip."
_
"Their Bluetooth strength is not as good as my previous pair but as long as you keep your phone with 20-30ft and have nothing between you and they should work great."

Cable

Cable:
"And the clip that shortens the cord behind your neck broke in the first few weeks."
_
"The cable adjustments that came with it were incredibly confusing to use but they're not really necessary."
_
"The magnetic earpieces are a good idea in theory, but if you're going to use the cord management system (i. e. two very small and very hard to use clips), the cord is likely going to be shortened so much such that if the ear pieces are together in front of you, it's nearly choking you."
_
"At first I thought these would be good because they had a nice long cord."
_
"The sound quality was excellent, and it was great to not have a cord flopping around while I ran."
_
"The magnetic earpieces are a good idea in theory, but if you're going to use the cord management system (i. e. two very small and very hard to use clips), the cord is likely going to be shortened so much such that if the ear pieces are together in front of you, it's nearly choking you."
_
"The bluetooth works wonderfully, and I don't get the static from the cord rubbing like others have stated."
_
"Well not the headphones, but the charging cable."

_

_
"If you want BOTH decent call clarity for your voice AND good overall comfort and useability, THIS SET IS GOOD, but call clarity does not distinguish this set from the field nor is it a major flaw."

Listening

Listening:
"I know it doesn't have to be this way because my Plantronics earpiece has Bluetooth 3.0 and it never cuts out under these conditions, to bad it's only a single ear headset and no good for listening to music, well not much good anyway."

"They stay in ok if I'm sitting still, but since they don't fit in tight, the sound quality is weak and too much noise gets in."

_
"First, let me confirm all the reviews that say this item has horrible range."
_
"The range wasn't very good at first, but it improved after the first couple uses."
_
"I took the chance after reading a lot of other negative reviews for other brands in the same price range."
_
"They don't have a very good range but they stayed in while doing seventy on my motorcycle."
_
"This means it has hugely limited range of adjustment and you basically will find that you may as well skip adjusting the volume on the headphones."
_
"Great Bluetooth range."
_
"Great battery life and range, simple, easy to use controls (work with play, pandora and google now on my android)."
_
"The fit is great but the bluetooth range was terrible with a Galaxy S6."

Rubber:

_
"My only complaint is that the rubber ear anchors come off too easily! "

Size

Size:
"The magnetic earpieces are a good idea in theory, but if you're going to use the cord management system (i. e. two very small and very hard to use clips), the cord is likely going to be shortened so much such that if the ear pieces are together in front of you, it's nearly choking you."
_
"This could very well be that i'm using the wrong size buds or anchors."
_
"The interchangeable ear buds didn't fit very well with any of the sizes that were provided, and therefore made the sound sound very distant like you were listening into a cave."
_
"My problem seems to be that the size of the ear-bud itself is too large, so the stabilizer (even the smallest one) can't reach the particular place where everyone else seems to put them, and the only place I can get it to is basically the top little pocket in my ear (which is not very stable at all."
_
"Verdict:don't get these if all you live for is head shaking bass - not possible with a small product like this and you will surely be disappointing."
_
"It would be better if the middle button were different in size shape or texture so it was easier to know what I was pressing."
_
"I've had a very good experience with these earbuds, with one small and one pretty big exception."
_
"With multiple sizes of in ear pieces and ear stabilizers (the hook pieces on the outside) it was pretty easy to find the right size to get them fit and feel comfortable."
_
"This could very well be that i'm using the wrong size buds or anchors."
_
"Maybe it's just my ears, but I had a hard time making them fit comfortably even with the 3 different sizes of ear pieces."

_
"I now recommend these, BUT... be patient and play around with the tips..if they sound tinny it is because you just do not have a good seal!"
_
"They look nice but the only relevance is how they sound and they get a fail! "
_
