Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Amazon

Amazon:
"I downloaded the Jabra app which allows you to adjust the sound quality, but only in that app, not for the Amazon Prime Music app, unfortunately."
_
"Of course I just missed my return window with Amazon so now i am stuck with non-working headphones."
_
"So I started thinking this might be the first batch Amazon had in stock was not good."
_
"Update 11 26 2014: Finally updated video of the malfunction, and pictures comparing Amazon and Bestbuy version."
_
"I was able to return it to Amazon for a refund."
_
"Best thing I ever brought from Amazon"
_
"Another difference is on the Barcode the Bestbuy version has 41 M on the upper left corner and the Amazon one has 37 M, sorry, I did take pic for this since I don't not want to show my S N, but I am guessing this might be the batch number, so the Bestbuy one is a later manufactured version."
_
"In my picture, the left one is the Bestbuy version and the right one is the Amazon version."
_
"Update 11 26 2014: Finally updated video of the malfunction, and pictures comparing Amazon and Bestbuy version."

Audio

Audio:
"Unfortunately the audio quality isn't adequate."
_
"The audio component is not as well rounded as my Denon W150."
_
"Workout headphones aren't notorious for good audio quality, of course, but for the price these cost you'd expect them to sound good."
_
"The audio quality is great, but not perfect."
_
"The audio quality is actually pretty decent, I think, although I have problems with it briefly cutting out when exercising."
_
"When I leave my phone (iPhone 6) in one room and walk away with the headphones on there's a fairly good chance the audio will cut out - over a range of a few meters but through a wall."
_
"I don't need bass heavy sound but I do want well balanced audio and these have almost no low end response."
_
"I needed some new wireless headphones and I was hopeful that despite previous reviews stating less than outstanding audio quality they would be good enough for running."
_
"To make a long story short, these headphones are designed well and fit great, but the audio quality for $150 headphones was poor and the heart rate monitor wasn't consistent and at least for me a bit inaccurate."

Battery

Battery:
"The problem is that the battery is easily broken (out of 6 products have had to replacel two as the battery stopped working in the first 3 months) and also the guarantee of a year, if you need to us it is not consistent."
_
"A minor complaint is the battery life is a little short compared to another headset I've used."
_
"battery almost always fails you."
_
"Thought battery was a weak point though."
_
"It seems to me that the quality of the battery is poor and causing the problems."
_
"The problem is that the battery is easily broken (out of 6 products have had to replacel two as the battery stopped working in the first 3 months) and also the guarantee of a year, if you need to us it is not consistent."
_
"The truth is you can not say it's a bad product because I have more than 6 Jabra models and all give good sound quality and battery life is adequate."
_
"Great potential, but I've tried two units and the batteries only last a few months before they won't accept a charge."
_
"The sound is awesome, battery life is amazing."

Bluetooth

Bluetooth:
"I tried the Beats earbuds in the past but they had horrible bluetooth connecting issues and I had to take them back several times."
_
"Thirdly, as someone else has mentioned, the Bluetooth Smart disconnected message is extremely irritating in its frequency and in the fact that there's no obvious way to disable it."
_
"Pros-Size-Heart rate-Design-Combination of multiple itemsCons-Music is not the best but overall great for bluetooth headphones-Wish the battery life was a bit longer then 4 hours but it does a good job"
_
"And the Jabra app doesn't integrate at all with iOS's HealthKit, leaving HealthKit data entry to the flaky Smart Bluetooth profile."
_
"Unbelievably annoying, with the voice prompts chirping Bluetooth Smart disconnected Bluetooth Smart connected in your ear each time, interrupting music listening."
_
"I have no idea what new piece of Android that their software requires, but it seemed pretty weird to me - bluetooth communicates with the devices, the software gets the data and does whatever it wants with."
_
"it disconnects very easily from bluetooth .really not worth the price."
_
"Bluetooth signal was strong and sound quality was good."
_
"As for point 3, well, these are bluetooth earphones, and that works fine."
_
"I had my phone (note had) always with me when running and never had problems with bluetooth connectivity."
_
"Sound is incredibly good, not just for bluetooth but for in ear headphones in general."

Cable

Cable:
"I've tried the accessories to secure the cord but it isn't effective."
_
"Had to return them but even if they had worked, they have the weird cable coating or plastic type for the loop that joins the earpieces that causes them stick to your skin."
_
"I can prune a tree without worrying about chopping my headphone cord by mistake or wash my car with my phone safely high and dry well away from the wash bucket!"
_
"Dislikes:1) Cable -- the cable is quite nice, but I do wish it moved more freely over my shirt.2) Color -- I'd prefer a sportier color, but I understand that this their 1st product.3) Really, I'm struggling for dislikes, as this is an amazing feat of engineering by Jabra."
_
"It'd be nice to shorten it up so there really is no play in the cables."
_
"Onto the bad: A slight edge might lie in the favor of the BBUDS in terms of comfort because of the different ways to wear them and the fact that cord didn't seem to stick to the back of my neck and create a pulling sensation on ears in the way that the Jabra device did."
_
"Love it, the only thing i didn't like so much it's that the cable feels cheap."
_
"I think what makes these stay in place is the fact that all the weight is in your ear, and the cord is very light, plus the wings do a good job of holding them in your ear lobe.+ Good sound, especially with Comply tips - as good as AudioTechnica ATH-ANC33I and better than most basic wired buds.+ Waterproof so far after lots of sweat and some rain (they are advertised as such)+ Good range of 30+ ft+ App is helpful for tracking heart rate and prompting for increasing decreasing intensity to match target zones, tracking workout history, and encouraging performance improvements+ You don't need to blast the volume because the isolation is good and they stay in place+ Nobody complained about the sound when I talk to them on the phone through the mic+ Battery lasted >4hrs- Bundled Dolby sound app makes decent sound improvements, but is otherwise TOTALLY useless because it shuts down when you minimize it, the phone screen turns off, or anything else happens on your phone."
_
"This seems to happen when I'm pretty sweaty and the cord doesn't glide across my skin."

Charging

Charging:
"After two months with the new pair, I had the same problem of the headphones not holding a charge."
_
"Like many of the others reviewers in here I had problems when charging the Jabra Sport Pulse headset."
_
"After the same timeframe I lost the ability to charge this headset as well; this is not likely a home electricity issue nor is it likely user error as I very closely read both directions on suggested charging practices."
_
"After a couple of months, I also starting having problems with the earbuds receivng and holding a charge."
_
"No idea why, the first pair I owned didn't have this issue, had to exchange them and my latest pair shows up as a different firmware version and it always has a problem turning on after a full charge."
_
"I did reinstallment 4 times and reset several times, but the bottons were still not working except power on and off, and the battery started malfunctioning which was not able hold any charge."
_
"Worked great for 1 month, then it stopped charging."
_
"Seems jabra has sorted out battery issues as the current pair holds the charge well."
_
"I'm very impressed with these headphones, I've used them frequently over the last 4 months and they do not fall out, hold a charge very well, and accurately track my heart rate."
_
"After the same timeframe I lost the ability to charge this headset as well; this is not likely a home electricity issue nor is it likely user error as I very closely read both directions on suggested charging practices."
_
"I was able to get them to charge, but again after about two months that pair also stopped receiving a charge."

Comfortable

Comfortable:
"PRO: When it works it is great - very good quality sound, its comfortable to wear and it doesn't fall off easily."
_
"One problem I've had with these particular earbuds is that when I find a sort of comfortable fit, I can't get them to stay in place and monitor my heart rate correctly."
_
"My main complaint is with the fit and comfort of the eargels and earwings."
_
"I will be curious to see future generations of this product...I would recommend this item to anyone who hates using a cheststrap, whether for comfort or convenience sake, and is not an audiophile."
_
"The buds stayed in my ear fine(after finagling with them for a while) but the problem was the comfort of them."
_
"They were OK for a couple of hours, but I normally wear over the ear headphones so it's hard to beat those for comfort."
_
"They are great for biking and hiking providing a comfortable two-for-one option to listen to music and track heart rate during a workout (WAYYYY more comfortable than a chest strap)."
_
"I use closed-cell foam Earphone Tips for great fit, sound isolation, comfort and traction (it won't fall out of your ear this way)."
_
"Sound quality, fit and comfort are great."
_
"Ear buds are not that comfortable for me any way, the unit itself works good."
_
"The headphones feel comfortable, and battery life seems more than adequate for my purposes."

Connection

Connection:
"If you move out of range of this divices you need to restart the head set or have an awfaul faulty connectivity."
_
"I tried the Beats earbuds in the past but they had horrible bluetooth connecting issues and I had to take them back several times."
_
"The main problems I had was connecting the Heart Rate Monitor to Digifit which I use to record my workouts."
_
"In my case, after approximately 2 months, the device started to malfunction, connecting and disconnecting repeatedly during three successive runs."
_
"However, the headset then constantly keeps me updated about the connected disconnected status of each and this gets extremely annoying!"
_
"Update: Jabra didn't respond to email but I phoned them (sounded like India and the connection was terrible) and they told me how to reset the unit (power them on, hold multifunction and sport button for 10 seconds)."
_
"is spot on, connectivity is strong, the fit is great, the design is amazing and the app is excellent.... but all this is WORTH ABSOLUTELY NOTHING because these headphones simply do not work."
_
"I had my phone (note had) always with me when running and never had problems with bluetooth connectivity."
_
"Work great for a while, and then go on the fritz disconnected connected constantly (my first pair) and then the on-the-go updates started to repeat over and over (2nd pair) -- both instances mid-jog, of course."
_
"Having music and tracking my heart rate without a strap is very convenient, the battery life is adequate for about a week of working out and overall the connection and reliability are solid."
_
"good battery life and easy connection to ipod phone."

Control

Control:
"Controls when it is off and on a little hard to know."
_
"In ear, these earbuds are very secure (but not so comfortable- see below).Intuitive music and phone controls."
_
"they also control my spotify perfectly onto a galaxy note 5 so that is great, my last pair did volume only."
_
"The device worked great the first two months but then the button control stopped working."
_
"I love having controls on the wire for the headphones."
_
"The controls have worked perfectly for me so far."
_
"The controls just below the right earpiece are easy to access and use with a multi-function button in the middle and up and down volume controls on the top and bottom."

Design

Design:
"The Jabra workout app, on the other hand, works as designed, but is terribly designed, with an ugly and unmodifiable UI and a ton of annoying voice prompts (heart rate detected) and countdowns (workout begins in 10... 9... 8...) and coaching nonsense (the voice recites your workout stats every ten minutes or so, and there's no obvious way to disable it) intervening on every single use of the headset, interrupting your music listening and annoying you mid-workout."
_
"It seems to be more of a design problem with the eargels themselves."
_
"This is much better than the Beats Sport headphones which are designed to be secured around the exterior of your ear and to me were uncomfortable and often came lose."
_
"is spot on, connectivity is strong, the fit is great, the design is amazing and the app is excellent.... but all this is WORTH ABSOLUTELY NOTHING because these headphones simply do not work."
_
"However, headphones designed for working out need to be able to handle sweat."
_
"Nice design, fit able at all, but poor very poor sound level, not bass at all."
_
"To make a long story short, these headphones are designed well and fit great, but the audio quality for $150 headphones was poor and the heart rate monitor wasn't consistent and at least for me a bit inaccurate."
_
"Durable and innovative design."

Fit

Fit:
"I am not sure if it was a defective unit or the fit in my ear, but the app was never able to pull pulse info from the headset."
_
"The earplugs fit very well and sound is good, but unfortunately the heart rate monitor does not pair with my Motoactv sport watch, that is why I do not give it five stars."
_
"I switched to the Bluebuds X but it's a poor compromise, as the Jabras fit MUCH better and that heart rate monitor was a real selling point."
_
"These earbuds are getting great reviews but I have tried all the fittings and they remain big uncomfortable hunks in my ears that often fall out, and the sound is spotty because of the poor fit."
_
"I did like them being wireless, but in the end I missed the isolation and the fit from my old iSports."
_
"Aside from the fit problem, I've enjoyed using these."
_
"The fit is great, and these stay on even after a long run."
_
"is spot on, connectivity is strong, the fit is great, the design is amazing and the app is excellent.... but all this is WORTH ABSOLUTELY NOTHING because these headphones simply do not work."
_
"The headphones fit nicely and appear well constructed."

Jabra

Jabra:
"Jabra customer service is terrible and tries anything to get out of replacing defective products."
_
"Try to talk to Jabra, they put you through the inquisition with their terrible customer service, before wanting me to pay to ship it to them and back."
_
"Hence, all three Jabra Sport Pulse devices I have had weren't able to turn on after a month."
_
"I got a new Jabra Sport Pulse device from Jabra but it had the same problem."
_
"Like many of the others reviewers in here I had problems when charging the Jabra Sport Pulse headset."
_
"The truth is you can not say it's a bad product because I have more than 6 Jabra models and all give good sound quality and battery life is adequate."
_
"Big kudos to team Jabra which sent me replacements 4x and promptly, without hassle."
_
"Yes, Jabra's customer service is remarkable but this product is simply crap and I would strongly recommend you stay away from it as far as possible."
_
"What good Jabra product if its reliability is in question?"
_
"Very disappointing since the Jabra Sport Pulse headset was excellent when working properly...Best regardsJeppe"

Monitor

Monitor:
"But, my biggest disappointment is the heart rate monitor."
_
"Oh and the heart rate monitor is not very effective."
_
"The earplugs fit very well and sound is good, but unfortunately the heart rate monitor does not pair with my Motoactv sport watch, that is why I do not give it five stars."
_
"The main problems I had was connecting the Heart Rate Monitor to Digifit which I use to record my workouts."
_
"All that said, it's still better than wearing a chest strap heart monitor, which I find very uncomfortable."
_
"But aside from that, I'm not very happy with the heart rate monitor."
_
"I originally purchased these because it included a heart rate monitor as well that you could use with their app on your iPhone."
_
"At first the wireless ear buds with pulse monitor seemed too good to be true."
_
"Instead, I found it more than adequate to simply monitor my heart rate."
_
"The pulse monitor was responsive and accurate."
_
"The earplugs fit very well and sound is good, but unfortunately the heart rate monitor does not pair with my Motoactv sport watch, that is why I do not give it five stars."

Music

Music:
"I downloaded the Jabra app which allows you to adjust the sound quality, but only in that app, not for the Amazon Prime Music app, unfortunately."
_
"Recently the left earphones started making this weird crackling noise whenever there's no music playing, and the battery drained itself even when the headphones are turned off."
_
"The only downside I can find with this awesome headset is all music MUST be played via the Dolby app if you want good quality sound."
_
"Unfortunately the Dolby music player app has fewer features (e. g., no iTunes Radio), and it appears to copy all songs over from iTunes (using double the memory in the iPhone, and unable to dynamically download songs stored in iTunes Match (iCloud) so this really limits the practical listening experience unless you only listen to music already downloaded onto your iPhone and you have tons of extra memory on your iPhone."
_
"Jury is still out on this, great idea and surprising comfortable but trying to have it actually measure your heart rate and listen to music is a challenge."
_
"The few times I have gotten it to work while running, music will cut in and out which is extremely annoying."
_
"They are great for biking and hiking providing a comfortable two-for-one option to listen to music and track heart rate during a workout (WAYYYY more comfortable than a chest strap)."
_
"Last, when you are playing your music from the Jabra app, you are able to choose a playlist, but you're not able to choose the shuffle mode."
_
"I like them they are comfortable and don't block outside sound, but the music is breaking when i put the phone in a pouch on my hip."
_
"A decent pair of wireless headphones for music, can't really compare it with any other headphones as I'm not much of an audiophile."
_
"I knew jabra had goo blue tooth headsets for calling but wasnt sure how good they were for music which is what I use these mainly for."

Pairing

Pairing:
"Notably, which and how many Jabra apps should be installed and what happens if pairing fails."
_
"Once fitted, the next problem is pairing."
_
"So, considering this as a HRM or exercise tracker, what with the bugginess, failure to stay paired, flawed HealthKit integration, and poor app quality, there's a lot more potential here than there is usable finished product."
_
"Still, it'll be worth considering if future firmware updates sort out its annoying quirks, especially its problems staying paired and working with iOS's HealthKit."
_
"The HealthKit integration doesn't work very well at all; the Smart profile works only intermittently, frequently fails to pair or drops pairing mid-use, and somehow also crashed the Health app repeatedly in my use."
_
"-When paired with an iPhone 6, the bluetooth connection can become very weak."
_
"Easy pairing."
_
"The pair with my Samsung S 5 was incredible fast and the instructions for pairing were clear."
_
"Overall wonderful for working out and pairing to your favorite fitness application."
_
"That's the truth behind the negative reviews for this product you may read, having piece of mind for this type of purchase for 2 years is well worth $35.The headphones have some difficulty being paired between multiple devices, but forgetting the device and repairing resolves the issue systematically."
_
"The headphones started to act oddly, volume changing, then turning on off on it's own, returning to pairing mode, then shutdown for good."

Price

Price:
"This head ser do id comfortable and sporty, the app is great and helps you work out and train , to all this it has some major faults:The sound quality is not that good, you will expect way better sound for the price."
_
"Cheap junk.....DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT!"
_
"As before, pretty disappointed as these are not on the cheap side of wireless buds."
_
"In addition, for the high price of these headphones, the sound quality is not good at all."
_
"Worst money spent for nothing."
_
"Im totally unsatisfied, $200 and I cant enjoy of this good concept and of the money spent."
_
"They are less reliable than Wal-Mart cheap headphones."
_
"I have to write a review, just brought mine at T-mobile, and like others have said for the price it's really not worth it, should be one of the best but nooo, cheaper one hav more punch than this, the sound quality is poor noo base and u can't hear anything around u if you really put it all in the ear no noise cancellation will be sending back, really wanted it to be awesome as a runner I'm disappointed, and for the buttons it really hard to skip songs while running, and wayyy cheaper one don't have that problem, not a very good purchase sorry it just looks fancy with a high price."
_
"it disconnects very easily from bluetooth .really not worth the price."
_
"I will never stray from this product, the price is pretty steep but well with worth it when you are looking for something that will last as well as the company will stand be their product!"
_
"The sound itself is a bit cheap and light for a high end headphone but good enough for 4 or 5 stars in a high intensity workout pair."

Quality:
"This head ser do id comfortable and sporty, the app is great and helps you work out and train , to all this it has some major faults:The sound quality is not that good, you will expect way better sound for the price."
_
"It seems to me that the quality of the battery is poor and causing the problems."
_
"In addition, for the high price of these headphones, the sound quality is not good at all."
_
"As many reviews say, they do not have the greatest sound quality but they are acceptable."
_
"Audio quality is shamefhul and their apps drain battery and have annoying ui's."
_
"Disappointed with a supposedly high quality product that failed in less than 4 months after I've waited for so long and building my excitement over them."
_
"The truth is you can not say it's a bad product because I have more than 6 Jabra models and all give good sound quality and battery life is adequate."
_
"Sound quality, fit and comfort are great."
_
"Bluetooth signal was strong and sound quality was good."

"So far the heart rate seems to be fairly accurate and reliable and the sound quality is adequate."
_
"Good concept; poor quality."

Sensor

Sensor:
"I hate wearing a Heart Rate sensor strap."
_
"The problem is with the heart rate sensor, which is way off."
_
"I'm not sure if all this is caused by sweat seeping into the sensor or earphone hardware, or by software glitches, but as far as I can tell these are not ready for prime time."
_
"So trading in your chest strap for a more convenient optical sensor is going to be a compromise for 90% of us."
_
"- I was afraid that all of the sensors, buttons, and battery would make this bulky and uncomfortable, or bad-sounding."
_
"Don't assume you will be one of the lucky 10%.That said, the Jabra Sport Pulse (which measures pulse rate through an optical sensor in the ear) is by far the best of the optical pulse readers."
_
"If you are sitting still the optical sensor won't have a problem reading your pulse rate accurately."
_
"With a good earbud fit the sensor has no where to move in your ear and there are few (if any? )"
_
"And, Samsung's heart rate sensor requires user to stay steady and its accuracy and sensibility disappear if there is sweat between the watch and you wrist."
_
"The sensor does a good job of measuring heart-rate so you can pace your workout and not go outside your BPM range."

_
"Customer service is terrible."

"Yes, Jabra's customer service is remarkable but this product is simply crap and I would strongly recommend you stay away from it as far as possible."

_
"I must say in Jabra's defence, that while their products have the durability of a chocolate tea pot, they do have great customer service."
_
"I was also blown away by the range - I tested it out in my home where they penetrated walls incredibly well, offered 50+ feet of service without distortion, and ultimately had similar results in the gym."

_
"I was sent the pulse as a replacement for a faulty Jabra Sport+ model (which lasted 2 months) I actually thought that these have great sound quality, range and fit, particularly when compared to the Sport+."
_
"Unfortunately they sent me a Sport+ rather than a Pulse which is a bit like getting used to flying business class, only to be downgraded to the middle seat in cattle class."
_
"When they work they are easily the best sport headphones I've ever used."
_
"Very disappointing since the Jabra Sport Pulse headset was excellent when working properly...Best regardsJeppe"
_
"The SPORT PULSE sounds amazing!"
_
"I have had plenty of cheaper sport earbuds that are far more comfortable."
_
"Summary: The Jabra Sport Pulse is a good heart rate monitor (HRM) and Bluetooth (BT) ear bud combo (in that order), and even better with some Comply tips, but it's a little pricey for just a Bluetooth ear bud."

"So trading in your chest strap for a more convenient optical sensor is going to be a compromise for 90% of us."
_
"They are great for biking and hiking providing a comfortable two-for-one option to listen to music and track heart rate during a workout (WAYYYY more comfortable than a chest strap)."
_
"Heart rate fuction is accurate and compares well with garmin chest strap that I use with garmin edge 800 bike gps."
_
"Having music and tracking my heart rate without a strap is very convenient, the battery life is adequate for about a week of working out and overall the connection and reliability are solid."
_
"Compared to a chest strap and headset and..., these are a good compromise."
_
"I find it very accurate and actually fun to track my workout without a chest strap or watch."

Volume

Volume:
"As a heart rate monitor the Jabra works great but as earphones not that great- the volume is not high enough and the sound quelity is poor"
_
"New unit worked for 5 runs, then half way through a 10 mile run the volume switches stopped working, then the HRM failed, then the unit shutdown to never restart again."
_
"Problems I had....When I wanted to increase the volume, it was moving to the next song instead."
_
"they also control my spotify perfectly onto a galaxy note 5 so that is great, my last pair did volume only."
_
"Mids and highs are crisp and clear with no discernible distortion at high volumes but without almost any lows music sounds flat."
_
"I think what makes these stay in place is the fact that all the weight is in your ear, and the cord is very light, plus the wings do a good job of holding them in your ear lobe.+ Good sound, especially with Comply tips - as good as AudioTechnica ATH-ANC33I and better than most basic wired buds.+ Waterproof so far after lots of sweat and some rain (they are advertised as such)+ Good range of 30+ ft+ App is helpful for tracking heart rate and prompting for increasing decreasing intensity to match target zones, tracking workout history, and encouraging performance improvements+ You don't need to blast the volume because the isolation is good and they stay in place+ Nobody complained about the sound when I talk to them on the phone through the mic+ Battery lasted >4hrs- Bundled Dolby sound app makes decent sound improvements, but is otherwise TOTALLY useless because it shuts down when you minimize it, the phone screen turns off, or anything else happens on your phone."
_
"However, when you create a strong seal, music sounds fairly good, even at higher volumes."
_
"I wouldn't call the sound quality state of the art, but it's decent and has a good range of volume to suit my needs."

Wireless

Wireless:
"As before, pretty disappointed as these are not on the cheap side of wireless buds."
_
"However the Jaybird Bluebuds continue to work under that conditions that seemed to make the Sport Pulse wireless earbuds fail."
_
"I did like them being wireless, but in the end I missed the isolation and the fit from my old iSports."
_
"As before, pretty disappointed as these are not on the cheap side of wireless buds."
_
"A decent pair of wireless headphones for music, can't really compare it with any other headphones as I'm not much of an audiophile."
_
"The one thing that I like is that it's wireless bluetooth and seems to be pretty sturdy."
_
"So far this is one of the best wireless headphones I have used"
_
"I've recently purchased a fantastic pair of wireless sport pulse."

iPhone

iPhone:
"My only complaint is the sound clips occasionally when I'm running, which is a little annoying, but I suspect this has more to do with the three year old IPhone 5 bouncing along on my armband than it does the headphones because when the phone is a few feet away and still it doesn't occasionally clip the sound with movement."
_
"That is a pain, but music played directly via the native iPhone iTunes app sounds really weak."
_
"Unfortunately the Dolby music player app has fewer features (e. g., no iTunes Radio), and it appears to copy all songs over from iTunes (using double the memory in the iPhone, and unable to dynamically download songs stored in iTunes Match (iCloud) so this really limits the practical listening experience unless you only listen to music already downloaded onto your iPhone and you have tons of extra memory on your iPhone."
_
"-When paired with an iPhone 6, the bluetooth connection can become very weak."
_
"I originally purchased these because it included a heart rate monitor as well that you could use with their app on your iPhone."
_
"Love these except if you have an older iphone it can be glitchy if running more than two apps."
_
"Enjoyed using these headphones for a few weeks, until the iPhone app told me my headphones were out of date and lost some functionality."
_
"The device pairs seamlessly with my iphone."
_
"I will say that pairing them with my iphone and getting the heart rate working was very easy."
