Charging

Charging:
"Also the plastic neck brace worn to keep it on place can be annoying and it interfers with charging."
_
"my galaxy S4headphones where in very good conditionCame with three different size neck bandsS, M, L very comfortableOne Piece charge blockVolume level was great, and sound quality was stunningI have had them for several weeks the battery life is about 8 hours depending on use and volume level,I would recommend The samsung galaxy circle to anyone who does not like to have wire dangling off of them."
_
"Luckily you don't have charge them much because the battery life is excellent."
_
"Love these headphones and they charge last a long time."
_
"A couple of things that are problematic:1- While it does come with different size ear buds, it doesn't quite fit for me--I would recommend that you try it out first if you can.2- I also have a Fitbit Charge HR that I wear on my left wrist and to my surprise the bluetooth there interferes with the signal to the headphones so if I'm out walking and need to hold the phone it has to be in my right hand or the audio cuts out."
_
"I use the Galaxy Note Edge (awesome phone btw), and have it set up to communicate with the gear circle as well as my FitBit charge HR, which has caller ID, so I don't even have to pull out my phone to answer or reject."

Connection

Connection:
"The design is flawed (among the worst), the connection is slightly subpar, the audio and call quality leave a lot to be desired."

Control

Control:
"One downside for me is that this version doesn't come with the track control buttons, like one I owned previously."
_
"When I contacted Samsung, they said I needed the Gear Sound Control App to adjust sound problems."
_
"you buy the gear malfunctions circle and volume control."
_
"This is annoying because that's the app that controls the equalizer and has the manual."
_
"The controls work well though, so that's cool."
_
"Other than that it's pretty easy to use and I love the volume control button on the earpiece."
_
"I love the volume control & the pause button."

Design

Design:
"The problem with them is design."
_
"Unfortunately, the earbud design is very odd and doesn't like to stay in."
_
")Don't even think of trying to use with an iPhone...Samsung's email and phone customer tech support (not this or any other seller) is specifically designed to give you the run-around to the point that you give up in frustration."
_
"But the design is terrible"
_
"The latest is that they are unable to process the RMA on my defective (by design! )"
_
"The design is flawed (among the worst), the connection is slightly subpar, the audio and call quality leave a lot to be desired."
_
"Great idea,very poor design."

_
"I loved the design but quickly fell out of love with the sound quality."
_
"interesting design but it seems to work great."

Fit

Fit:
"No matter how good or expensive they are, they never fit good and they are uncomfortable."
_
"Sound quality not good, fit not food."
_
"I gave one to my daughter because i continued to have problems keeping the piece to fit in my ear."
_
"Ear buds don't fit well."
_
"THese are absolute great...great sound, great battery life, but the neck guard seems to be a big fragile, hard to disconnect headset from neck guard, so i broke the only one that fit me the medium one, so does anyone know how to get replacements for these, can't seem to find them anywhere"
_
"I can completely understand why some people are uncomfortable in these but for me they fit great."
_
"I expected it is easy to wear, and fit ears well."
_
"And the earbud fits well and blocks out outside noise enough that I don't have to blast the volume to hear it comfortably."
_
"The fit is comfortable and easy to wear."
_
"The earphones did not fit in my ear well and kept falling out."
_

Music

Music:
"The music was good but the talking on the phone was HORRIBLE."
_
"However, a few people have commented that they like these so it's really a personal preference- With it paired to two phones, it sometimes gets confused as to which music streaming service to start back up when I unhook and put them into my ears- With just one in, the weight of the unused earbud tends to make them slip- The manual doesn't clearly explain how to put them into BT pairing mode (make sure the magnets are together and hold down the button for 3 seconds)All in all, I highly suggest these headphones."
_
"Charges very quickly and the sound is great for video but not the best for listening to music."
_
"I got my daughter trying to talk to me, gf poking me in the foot talking to me, and all i can hear is the Milk Music app streaming through my Gear S. Cons: broken record here, Samsung why would you make 3 different neck band sizes but only 2 different ear bud sizes?"
_
"They sound great across all genres of music."
_
"They work great I use them for every day to listen to music and while I work out."
_
"Great for calls or music."
_
"It pairs beautifully with my Samsung Phone and my Gear S, notifies me of messages (reads them aloud if you want it to), has great battery life and sounds great for music and phone calls."
_
"I use these for mobile calls music as well as connecting to my PC for conference calls."

Price

Price:
"I can not recommend the Gear Circle knowing that losing or damaging a very inexpensive piece will render the device unusable to the point that a new unit has to be purchased."
_
"Great sound and great price."
_
"well work the price."
_
"Well Worth The Price! "
_
"Best bluetooth I've ever had... the color is fantastic and the price is very affordable"

Quality

Quality:
"Sound quality not good, fit not food."
_
"I couldn't get good enough sound quality when paired to my new Samsung Tv and without the App I couldn't adjust sound to play equally in each earphone."
_
"The sound quality isn't that good even at high volume."
_
"Sound quality could be better design not all that great but I'm a Samsung fan and this does the job quite well for me"
_
"I am very disappointed in these as I am a huge fan of Samsung's quality and innovation."
_
"The sound quality is great and they are very comfortable to wear."
_
"my galaxy S4headphones where in very good conditionCame with three different size neck bandsS, M, L very comfortableOne Piece charge blockVolume level was great, and sound quality was stunningI have had them for several weeks the battery life is about 8 hours depending on use and volume level,I would recommend The samsung galaxy circle to anyone who does not like to have wire dangling off of them."
_
"Sound quality is excellent, and sounds crystal clear."
_
"I ride my bike about 20 miles a day and never had it fall off once they stay in place and the sound quality is good."
_

Range

Range:
"The Blue Tooth has a good range, and in testing it, I was able to me 10 meters away from my phone, and still receive a good signal."
_
"Overall, this is a nice Bluetooth device, excellent battery life and range to signal is good."
_
"When properly inserted, they create a very tight fit to block out outside sounds and results in excellent audio range and quality."
_
"So, I exchanged the for a set of LG HBS-900s, which so far are working with no problems and with a 20-30 foot range."
_
"Quality is ok, no bass which dissapointing for a head set in this price range."

Size

Size:
"I'd like to see a smaller size ear cushion: mine fall out because my ear is so small which is annoying."
_
"the problem with this item it keeps falling out of my ears even after I changed the air plugs size this is not good for some people"
_
"The earbud tips are a weird size and shape, and I prefer to use foam replacement tips on my earbuds."
_
"my galaxy S4headphones where in very good conditionCame with three different size neck bandsS, M, L very comfortableOne Piece charge blockVolume level was great, and sound quality was stunningI have had them for several weeks the battery life is about 8 hours depending on use and volume level,I would recommend The samsung galaxy circle to anyone who does not like to have wire dangling off of them."
_
"The headset is very comfortable to wear, and has the added bonus for those like myself who also want to wear the headset while doing exercise of an accessory that is supplied with the headset in 3 sizes (small, medium and large) of a plastic collar that you can clip the control piece of the headset into and then slip the collar around the neck (it is very comfortable and of a size that you don't notice around your neck), and allows you to run walk or cycle or exercise in the gym without the Phones falling out of your ears."
_
"Even when I use the small, clear neck support & small ear bud covers, ear buds still fall out of my ears."
_
"It would be amazing if it had battery indicator (if that could be a widget that would be great).- The form factor is pretty good, the small neckband fits me great, unlike with the LG tone bluetooth headsets it fits snug enough that it doesn't rub against the across body strap of my laptop bag, when I'm running it sometimes rides up a little but it doesn't bounce or slide around, and I don't think it would fly off if I fell down which is what lost me one pair of LG tone."

Sound

Sound:
"I can never get them to stay in my ears and even when they do, the sound isn't good unless I physically push the bud into my ear canal."
_
"Sound quality not good, fit not food."
_
"Only used twice and they already sound broken"
_
"Good sound, but earpiece assembly a little uncomfortable....also plastic housing will eventually break no matter how careful you are with it!"
_

_
"The sound quality is great and they are very comfortable to wear."
