Audio

Audio:
"Terrible audio quality."
_
"I understand why an occluded earpiece was used - because it can deliver great bass with extremely low power from the internal audio amplifier - but the occluded earpiece is annoying for long duration wear compared to buds that just sit in the bowl of your ear."
_
"AND they do look better and feel better around my neck than a pair of LG tones, but I'm really surprised (especially considering a lot of positive reviews) just how BAD the audio quality is on these...Maybe mine was just defective, but they weren't loud enough at all and the voice audio on calls was just downright terrible."
_
"Minor connectivity problems, audio will lag or skip on occasion."
_
"I can not notice any sync problems between audio and video?"
_
"If I have to hold my phone next to my ear to keep the audio from dropping, then you've failed at being wireless."
_
"Audio quality, wireless range and comfort is great, just a pity the build quality and mechanical moisture sealing is so poor."
_
"Audio quality is great and battery life is amazing."
_
"Expected that my audio quality would be good and would be fun to use to listen to music."
_
"The audio for music is pretty good."
_
"Good audio."

Base

Base:
"I wear them at work and the base fits hidden perfectly under a collared shirt."
_
"In all honesty, that sounds like a stupid explanation but the bigger ear pieces do give me more base ... not nose bleed bass but adequate."
_
"It enhances the base and cancels the noise rather well."
_
"Fair sound quality, especially base, comfortable to wear and easy to set up and use."
_
"They are pretty quite and the base is lacking."
_
"Good base."

Battery

Battery:
"The first one lasted about a year before the magnetic earbud plate broke off and the battery life degraded to unusable."
_
"Then you only have 5 or 10 minutes before the battery is completely dead."
_
"Charger would work only sometimes and battery life was not good."
_
"Poor battery life, frail skinny wires, terrible sound quality, trouble staying connected a short distance from phone or a bad mic to name a few."
_
"Some say it has a terrible battery."
_
"very disappointing the battery only lasts one hour."
_
"Great product use during bicycle rides to listen to spotify also like being able to take call while on my motorbike excellent battery life a all around great product"
_
"The battery life is simply amazing, I can go several days between charges and I am on the phone for several hours each day."
_
"As far as battery life I would say it is pretty good."
_
"Battery life is great, it will last me a few days without a charge."
_
"Battery life has been outstanding."

Bluetooth

Bluetooth:
"I don't know if this is just something with all Bluetooth headsets, but it is a bit confusing when the mouth moves then you hear the words a 1 2 second or so later, almost like an old Japanese kung fu movie."
_
"After trying a number of cheaply made Chinese Bluetooth headphones, all of which failed within a month or two, I tried a name brand."
_
"Only issue I have is that sometimes the quality is not great, even for bluetooth."
_
"Because it is a very rigid plastic (unlike many of the LG Bluetooth models) it isn't very friendly to put on and off- especially if you have any type of longer length to your hair."
_
"I searched and searched for bluetooth earbuds and couldn't find the perfect ones for me,the only ones that popped up were the lg tone's which I tried and did'nt like that much(they looked a little cheap to me and wobbled too much on my neck).I found these searching up brand bluetooth earbuds like the samsung circle earbuds and others but then i thought,maybe Motorola has bluetooth earbuds and BAM!"
_
"Worst Bluetooth headphones ever."
_
"this is an average bluetooth headset at best."
_
"I do think that the microphone is a bit sensitive to movement on your shirt or collar which can create a loud sound for your caller on the other end (so I try to remain still while on a call) but the stereo sound is good and the Bluetooth connection has never dropped from my phone once."
_
"Voice quality on phone calls and Bluetooth range are outstanding."
_
"I have tried nearly 10 brands of Bluetooth ear buds, and these are by far the best ever!"
_
"On calls, the people on the other end indicate the sound is quite good which is better than most Bluetooth devises I have tried."

Button

Button:
"The play stop answer end Siri EQ button tries to do everything and thus fails to do what you want when you want it."
_
"I am not able to turn on the power button and when I connect it to the USB for charge I can only see a red light blinks."
_
"The buttons were very annoying to try and make function like they were supposed to with my iPhone 6 Plus."
_
"Buttons (two sets of two buttons on the two protruding arms) and one button in back, confusing for special functions like reset."
_
"One of the problems is that the on off button is not user friendly."
_
"Only real complaint is that I wish the power button was a bit easier to get to and maybe a switch rather than a button you have to hold down for a couple seconds."
_
"I also love that I can answer or hang up calls with the buttons."
_
"Wish they had separate 'forward reverse' buttons instead of 'play forward' buttons but these work great."
_
"Anyway, they work great, I love the balance and the volume pause fwd buttons are easy to get to and control."
_
"Only real complaint is that I wish the power button was a bit easier to get to and maybe a switch rather than a button you have to hold down for a couple seconds."

Cable

Cable:
"I was disappointed with charging cable ."
_
"Anyway, other complaints have mentioned the length of the cables to which the buds are attached."
_
"Went through two LG sets, old HBS 700 had great speech clarity nobody had any problems hearing me but the cables disintegrated in one year( not used in workout or excessive sweaty situations."
_
"As a person of above average height, this poses a problem for me, as the cables stay nearly taut all the time, even when I'm looking straight ahead."
_
"Only complaint I have is cord should be a little longer I have to hold neck band when I turn my head."
_
"Only complaint is that the rubber bands that hold the cord to frame limit the range of motion."
_
"The rubber bands holding the cable to the neck piece can be rolled up and down the length of the neck piece to give more or less slack to the cables so that's not a problem - I can twist my head to near-owl levels with no tug against the buds."
_
"Was looking for something sturdy with the same call quality didnt go LG route as some of my colleagues who got the newer models experienced lots of problemsBuilt like a rock, good flat tangle free cables, good call clarity excellent for work."
_
"Moto would do well to increase the earbud cable length, even if only by 5 centimeters, to allow the wearer more freedom of movement."
_
"Pros1) great sound with music2) no complaints of ambient noises3) great magnet, cord stays putCons:1) short battery talk time2) headset is stiff and difficult to put on3) on IOS if headset disconnects you have to go to settings and reconnect or power headset off and back on to reconnect"
_
"The cables are too short but they work great"

Charging

Charging:
"I was disappointed with charging cable ."
_
"*EDIT* I must amend my published review due to poor product, poor customer support, unmarked buttons that are difficult to decipher as to function (despite the voice prompting feature described) and general failure of the device to reset after fully charging it, which was the last straw for me."
_
"Piece of junk.... Would not charge one month after I purchased."
_
"I recently bought these head phones and when I first bought then I lOved then just recently I been having several problems with them...I've had problems charging it....Also SOund Starting Coming Out all static..and now I lost sOunds on the left side...hopefully I can get this resolved...."
_
"I got spoiled with these so much that they died after failing to remember to put them on charge and I went back temporarily to my wife's plug in ear buds and I instantly missed how comfortable the Motorolas were!"
_
"So, the only problem I have had is forgetting to charge them at night and having them run out half way through the 2nd day."
_
"Battery life is great, it will last me a few days without a charge."
_
"Holds decent charge, and charges quickly."
_
"I recommend pulling them out of the box, charging them up, and just enjoying how they sound from factory."
_
"For the price of these, the long charge capacity, durability and sound quality, you simply can not beat them!"
_
"Light weight, holds a charge all day, good sound and a fast charge."

Connection

Connection:
"The little led light is off when it is connected so it is hard to tell if it is on."
_
"Good connection, and the earbuds are quite good, but really missing some of the features that make the LG Tone Pro just a bit better."
_
"Minor connectivity problems, audio will lag or skip on occasion."
_
"Poor battery life, frail skinny wires, terrible sound quality, trouble staying connected a short distance from phone or a bad mic to name a few."
_
"Folks on the other end of the connection complain about the noise and poor voice quality EVERY SINGLE TIME."

_
"Connected easily to my phone (Nexus6 by Motorola so it should)."
_

_
"This may be a feature of the bluetooth connection or the connected device but could very easily be the Motorola."
_

Control

Control:
"Considering these never were used for any even slightly strenuous workouts and are otherwise in pristine condition, there must be a quality control problem."
_
"The small downsides is that I don't think they are waterproof (I wore them one while running and the controls started malfunctioning, so I never did that again."
_
"Sounds is GREAT, microphone not so great, controls somewhat awkward, good range."
_
"The controls are confusing, the sound quality is abysmal, and no matter what set of buds I put on it, they constantly fall out of my ears."
_
"The Bluetooth works well , better then the LG 730, the controls are not that good lag a lot."
_
"Not giving 5 stars only because I'm unhappy with controls."
_
"I used this bluetooth headset for a week and it was great.....until sweat got near the volume controls (i can't help that when i run i sweat) and the volume controls stopped working."
_
"Mic and controls are easy to get to from the wearing position in front."
_
"Controls are easy for non-throttle hand to find and use once I figured out which button does what."
_
"The first set was durable, sweat resistant, has excellent controls for: google now, skipping tracks, volume control."
_
"It took me a couple tries to learn the controls, but all has been good since than."

Cord

Cord:
"I love this Bluetooth headset, sound quality is great, paired in seconds to my cell phone; the only negative downside is that the earpiece cords are too short! "
_
"My only complaints are that I would like the cords on the buds to be a little longer, I do pull them out of my ears when I turn my head occasionally."
_
"The construction is adequate, the cords will break sooner than later but they're very discreet."
_
"They are comfortable to wear, the cords haven't caught on anything yet (like ipod buds will) and once I got the right size ends they sealed out the outside sound to a large degree and gave greater volume."
_
"These ear buds work as expected and the battery life is great, however the cords that attach the ear buds to the unit are too short even with the o-rings that secure them rolled back as far as they will go."
_
"They are nice even on the motorcycle or my snowmobile as fit comfortably in my helmet and no cords."
_
"These motorola ones have much more durable cords and stronger magnets that actually hold the buds."

"Over all they're wonderful while talking on the phone the distance is great, it connects very fast when turned on."
_
"The reception is pretty good (B-) and excellent distance."

"Great distance and the sound quality is alright, A little to low ."
_
"Perfect, the sound, the quick connection to my phone, and the distance range are great for my needs."
_

Fit

Fit:
"These Buds fit snug, however they do not have very good range, 20 to 30 feet line of sight after that that break up."
_
"Others failed due to construction or they did not fit well."
_
"If you have a bigger neck doesn't fit too well."
_
"It also is a bit narrow at neck (and a bit inflexible) and may not fit well for those that have a broader neck."
_
"Update - swapped ear pieces over from another set of headphones and it helped with fit and sound quality - so if you have these and are disappointed, it may be worth trying to get a better seal...Perhaps I got a lemon, because my experience doesn't seem to be matching other reviewers."
_
"Two pairs now... First pair just died...very heavly used and not bad, best fit due to the loose wires and not big ear pieces."
_
"All in all these have a good sound and snug fit which is the main reason I chose this brand over the others."
_
"Sound quality is great much better than expected, particularly once you find which size bud fits and is most comfortable for your ear."

"I was worried about listening volume until discovering volume is influenced by both headset control AND phone volume control."
_
"Not good for listening to music."
_
"I don't workout, but I do enjoy listening to my own music while doing almost anything else."
_
"After about 2 weeks, the button that is used to forward to the next song when I'm listening to music stopped working, This has been very disappointing as I have several motorola devices."
_
"- Bluetooth Audio: while the connection was always strong, I encountered several odd problems when listening to music."
_
"In both cases it was like listening to an AM radio in a Dixie cup -- horrible sound quality!"

"I've been fiddling with my phone's music settings, but have not been able to rectify this so far."

Noise

Noise:
"Other side can't hear me well, but they do hear all the background noise (office, city, etc)."
_
"I'm giving it a four, because I didn't feel it was clear enough that Noise Cancelling referred to the mic rather than the earbuds."
_
"Only complaint is that it picks up the background noise which annoys the person you're talking to."
_
"Folks on the other end of the connection complain about the noise and poor voice quality EVERY SINGLE TIME."
_
"This is always the problem for us with Bluetooth technology because they usually have a noise cancelling component and that seems to be what interferes."
_
"The only problem was that the food not have noise cancelation built into them so when people called you they could hear lots of back ground noise."
_
"My only complaints, the volume is a bit low, especially for music and the microphone is actually a bit too good and picks up a lot of unwanted background noise."
_
"It may not be the loudest headset I ever used but the headset blocks all outside noises and you can hear it great ."

Power:
"I am not able to turn on the power button and when I connect it to the USB for charge I can only see a red light blinks."
_
"Only real complaint is that I wish the power button was a bit easier to get to and maybe a switch rather than a button you have to hold down for a couple seconds."
_
"First the Power button is horrible!"
_
"To add insult to injury the power button is placed in the worst possible place, in the center back and on the underside which is very awkward to operate if you have them on."
_
"The Motorola Buds always have 0.5 to 2 seconds of lag that even a (very slow) power cycle does not clear."
_
"Con's:* Power button is not the best."
_
"Only real complaint is that I wish the power button was a bit easier to get to and maybe a switch rather than a button you have to hold down for a couple seconds."

"I understand why an occluded earpiece was used - because it can deliver great bass with extremely low power from the internal audio amplifier - but the occluded earpiece is annoying for long duration wear compared to buds that just sit in the bowl of your ear."

_
"Unit has good battery life and power management."

_
"Sound quality is cheap, very disappointed."
_
"That was a disappointment, but these are still great for the price."
_
"The neck piece is made out of hard plastic and looks a little cheap and not durable but I was optimistic."
_
"Great headphones for an awesome price, but not as good as the LG Tone series (especially Infinim model) in terms of audio quality and comfort."
_
"So - wires too short to let me move move normally, they earbuds that don't stay put because of sizing, and audio quality poor enough that I'll likely never bother trying to fix the other two issues... pretty disappointed, even at the sale price I got them for."
_
"These are great your buds for the price fantastic"
_
"At 1 3 the price of good sound quality headphones, I won't return them; but makes me seriously debate returning for LG or other cheap pair."

"These Buds fit snug, however they do not have very good range, 20 to 30 feet line of sight after that that break up."
_
"very tinny, lack of bass, mediocre mid range and highs of tin that rounds out for mediocre at best."
_
"Sounds is GREAT, microphone not so great, controls somewhat awkward, good range."
_
"The sound quality is not good and I am not getting anywhere near the range that was advertised."

"The most annoying thing about these headphones is the bluetooth range."

Reception

Reception:
"You can measure the reception with a broken ruler, though."
_
"Granted, I must have dead spots in my apartment because other bluetooth devices don't work well..but even at a house with good reception I couldn't go up a flight of stairs without getting static."

Setting

Setting:
"I've been fiddling with my phone's music settings, but have not been able to rectify this so far."
_
"Both headsets had a drawback with the EQ setting."
_
"For the curious, I also found that there are three equalizer settings through which it cycles (not documented).The third criticism, probably second in importance, is that there is a 2 to 4 second delay when picking up a call."
_
"I did try changing the equalizer setting, which brings me to the second criticism."
_
"The only issue I've found is that the 3 EQ settings they offer seem to be pretty useless - the default stock EQ settings is all that's needed for good sound."
_
"Play pause answer end track-skip commands (as well as EQ settings and voice dial activation) are handled by a rocker switch on the left, and volume adjustments are handled by a rocker switch on the right."
_
"In other settings - listening to music, watching movies - amazing for that too."
_
"- no markings on the switches to indicate what they do - unlike the superior LG Tone- no range improvement over LG Tone 700 and 730- voice prompts disregard volume setting and blast at full volume - unlike the superior LG Tone- less comfortable around the neck and in the ears than the superior LG Tone- 3 buttons vs 5 for the superior LG Tone ... Motorola trying to save money and increase profits by combining functions in fewer buttons ... made worse by zero labeling ... keep the instructions handy unless you use it often and can remember what they do."

Tone

Tone:
"As an individual that had the LG tone 730's and loved them and unfortunately broke them in a severe storm on my motorcycle, I was very disappointed in the durability of this product."
_
"Although these are not as visually appealing as the LG Tones (in my opinion), they are very durable and ideal for exercise."
_
"Great headphones for an awesome price, but not as good as the LG Tone series (especially Infinim model) in terms of audio quality and comfort."
_
"I searched and searched for bluetooth earbuds and couldn't find the perfect ones for me,the only ones that popped up were the lg tone's which I tried and did'nt like that much(they looked a little cheap to me and wobbled too much on my neck).I found these searching up brand bluetooth earbuds like the samsung circle earbuds and others but then i thought,maybe Motorola has bluetooth earbuds and BAM!"
_
"Good connection, and the earbuds are quite good, but really missing some of the features that make the LG Tone Pro just a bit better."
_
"In terms of wearability and style and maybe even the sound, I'll give the edge to LG Tone, but LG Tone is no good if you spend that much for a headset that doesn't make it through at least a year."
_
"I've also read the Motorola Buds are a tighter fit than the LG Tone, which can be a good or bad thing depending on how you plan on using them - good for exercise."
_
"These things are amazing, I got them to replace my lg tone pro 750's and couldn't be happier, the sound quality, and durability far surpass that of the lg's which had 1 ear bud quit working and the other barely hear able after only 3 months."
_

Voice

Voice:
"*EDIT* I must amend my published review due to poor product, poor customer support, unmarked buttons that are difficult to decipher as to function (despite the voice prompting feature described) and general failure of the device to reset after fully charging it, which was the last straw for me."
_
"The absolute worst sound quality I've experienced; tinny, distorted and the voice prompts are annoying."
_
"AND they do look better and feel better around my neck than a pair of LG tones, but I'm really surprised (especially considering a lot of positive reviews) just how BAD the audio quality is on these...Maybe mine was just defective, but they weren't loud enough at all and the voice audio on calls was just downright terrible."
_
"Folks on the other end of the connection complain about the noise and poor voice quality EVERY SINGLE TIME."
_
"Briefly, the main problem for me is that they don't work with Voice Dream, which is an iOS text-to-speech program I use all the time to read books to me."
_
"First attempt was met with a voice response: EQ Changed."
_
"good quality and clear voice thanks"
_
"Voice activation (Siri in my case) is pretty much impossible to activate."
_
"my boyfriend and I have a set each and to my surprise and for the first time I don't hear anything other than a clear voice."
_
"Good fit and good sound, however they do not voice dial or voice information (searches and info...ect."
_
"Most people I spoke to over the phone did not like the voice quality, I could hear them well though."

Volume

Volume:
"Two weeks later even restarting failed to allow me to change the volume and it was stuck on a very low volume level."
_
"My only complaints, the volume is a bit low, especially for music and the microphone is actually a bit too good and picks up a lot of unwanted background noise."
_
"I was worried about listening volume until discovering volume is influenced by both headset control AND phone volume control."
_
"the on-off switch blows, you have to hold it down and you don't know if you were able to turn it on or off...also as I ran the unit's volume control started turning itself down until I could barely hear it...I returned it after a week"
_
"I was not satisfied with the overall volume of the product from the start."
_
"I used this bluetooth headset for a week and it was great.....until sweat got near the volume controls (i can't help that when i run i sweat) and the volume controls stopped working."
_
"Phone conversation volume is great, but music volume could be a little better."
_
"They are comfortable to wear, the cords haven't caught on anything yet (like ipod buds will) and once I got the right size ends they sealed out the outside sound to a large degree and gave greater volume."
_
"The first set was durable, sweat resistant, has excellent controls for: google now, skipping tracks, volume control."

Wireless

Wireless:
"If I have to hold my phone next to my ear to keep the audio from dropping, then you've failed at being wireless."
_
"I have bought my wife several different kinds of wireless headphones earbuds, and these are by far the best quality."
_
"Audio quality, wireless range and comfort is great, just a pity the build quality and mechanical moisture sealing is so poor."
_
"I'm really surprised because these were to replace a Motorola S-305 which is one of the best sounding wireless headsets I've used - used so much I wore it out and these buds were intended to the replacement."
_
"best wireless headphones ive used"
_
"So wired earbuds at this price are very good sound quality high end and wireless earbuds at this price are (in my opinion) bad sound quality low end, but if you're only buying these for one purpose (strictly for jogging, lifting, or anything else where wires and holding the device its connected to are an issue) and if you don't mind the sound quality, then go for them like I did."
