Well they die after 2 hours, I think that was the charge, but I pluged and the signal was ok, I pluged off and don't response, Is like the internal battery get broken of something like that."

_
"But I was disappointed when I found out that I could use the Siri fiction on the Bluetooth."

_
"My son recommended this Bluetooth to my husband and he to me."

Button

Button:
"The downside is accidentally pressing the buttons when making adjustments."
_
"Brand new unit shipped, quit working within few weeks as well-I suspect they're not sweat proof at all and the power button circuit fails as a result."
_
"The controls are intuitive though I was initially confused at first about the ON button being the same as the volume rocker, but otherwise the controls work as described in the manual."
_
"The other problem is that the forward back button is on the left side, and I find that I often inadvertently hit it when I'm readjusting the headset."
_
"The lights came on, however the power button still was unresponsive after being fully charged."
_
"Ultimately, out of frustration, I simply held the pairing button in place for about 3x the time recommended in the instructions, and the headphones paired."
_
"I've had them well over a year and while a button fell off... they still work and I have put them through hell.... charge stays good for quite a while still..... only thing is that the band on the band has become slightly misshapen and makes the ear-buds sit in my ear at a slightly uncomfortable angle"
_
"I like that the buttons are easy to use."
_
"With this, I can easily push the buttons while running or working out and don't have to have my ipod accessible...I can put it in my pocket."
_
"After calling Tech they told me to hold down button UNTIL paired, & that the 5-8 seconds they recommend needs to be changed."
_
"Pros: no wires, light weight, good sound quality, buttons easy to use, connects easily with bluetooth, reasonable priceCons: Only stays in your ears if you put the wires above your head."

Cable

Cable:
"For so many years i have been tethered to my phone via headset and cord, never again:) These are just great and so comfortable."
_
"Use them at gym with iPad ... Then on my bike with iPhone - then when I'm gardening (w iPad in shade) love not having a cord and love the magnet that holds them together when not in use."
_
"IF you have a larger head then this would not be a good choice as the cord only goes so far around the back of your neck at that point I would recommend something with a much larger cord but for a girl or woman I think the size if perfect"
_
"I bought these because I'm an avid runner and I hate having a cord bouncing on me while I'm out."
_
"But the springiness of the cord is a problem."
_
"The second thing is that in the first couple of days, I was wearing them in the wrong ears (they fit but the loose cable behind my ears felt weird)."
_
"And this is the first wireless set of headphones I've had, so I'm just really happy with not having to deal with a cord listening to music on the go."
_
"Nice sound but the cord is to big, so it is out of the ears easily! "
_
"I liked the color a lot but the connecting cord is a bit stiff and the ear pieces kept falling out of my ears."
_
"The biggest upside is the comfort of not having to deal with a cord."
_
"They are perfect for working out and the best thing is that it's cord free."

_
"People are using the wrong charger!"

_
"The headset worked well for a few months until it stopped holding a charge."
_
"I've had them well over a year and while a button fell off... they still work and I have put them through hell.... charge stays good for quite a while still..... only thing is that the band on the band has become slightly misshapen and makes the ear-buds sit in my ear at a slightly uncomfortable angle"
