Anywhere

Battery

_
"I knew something was wrong because normally the headphones indicate a low battery."
_
"The only detracting factor is the battery life isn't as great as some other pairs I've tried."
_
"I thought the battery was dead."
_
"I was skeptical when I got them because I haven't had very good luck with bluetooth stuff, but the battery lasts a lot longer than I expected, and I've never had problems connecting them to my devices."

_
"Great to use at the gym, on the bike, or around the house."

Bluetooth:
"Pros:- Good sound quality- Nice fit, no loose wires (however, not recommended for long flights)- Great battery life (typically 6 or 7 workouts before needing to charge)- Good bluetooth connectivityCons:- Broke less than one year of use- Pricier than other workout headphones"
_
"I know that Bluetooth is not going to be as good as wired earphones but I bought a cheap $17.00 pair of Bluetooth earphones and they sounded MUCH better than these."
_
"They are extremely inconsistent and do not maintain a good bluetooth connection."
_
"Earbuds are extremely uncomfortable with the tips they send, and bluetooth does not connect all the time."
_
"Granted, I don't have any other wireless *in-ear* headphones to compare these with, but they weren't as good as the Skullcandy Hesh 2 Bluetooth 4.0 Wireless Headphones with Mic (Black) in terms of sound quality in my opinion."
_
"They came as the highest recommended bluetooth earbuds I could find, but I might just have the wrong ears for them."
_
"It really sucks because I love the Bluetooth idea but I work out for hours at a time and I just couldn't stomach crappy sound for that long."
_
"At any rate, one of the best bluetooth earbuds on the market with a battery life that outlasts Plantronics any day."

Body

Body:
"I would not recommend this product for running exercising or anything that will have your body moving."
_
"The speaker portion broke off the body of the headphone."
_
"Most of the bluetooth headsets have a dead spot when you're earphones on your body either by you moving your hand to turn up the volume, or answer a call, these do not."
_
"Now, to get the fit does take some trial and error, but it's the same with anything that fits your body that well."
_
"It's like having your ears plugged up on air airplane - uncomfortable and you can hear your heart beating and any other noise you body makes or the wire rubbing on your shirt."
_
"Running, or just moving fast, with these headphones, degrades the sound just because your body is moving so much."
_
"I love not having a cable running down my body to my phone."
_
"I love a full body sound and not something that sounds like I've turned up the treble as high as it can go."
_
"The Bluetooth was spotty as well and I get it a lot of Bluetooth connections are ad and the body interferes but I would expect it to work if the phone is in my back jersey pocket or in my runner's belt and the cord is draped behind me."
_
"Now, to get the fit does take some trial and error, but it's the same with anything that fits your body that well."
_
"Also, the formed rubber holders do not stay on the main body well either so they slide off easily...leading to non-positive control to keep them in the ear."

Charging

Charging:
"The build quality is pretty good, although the cover for the charge connection has cracked and broken over time."
_
"Charge last a while - but for me; these aren't comfortable at all."
_
"Was running today after fully charging at work, and it missed out a couple of times during my run then just said power off while in use and had been dead since."
_
"I ended up using a different charger I already had that worked to charge them, so I guess the charger was no good."
_
"Btw, you will not be able to pair while the headphone is charging."
_
"No charging, no hassle ."
_
"After two years of regular use (2-8 hours a day) they still hold a charge well, 5-6 hours."
_
"The build quality is pretty good, although the cover for the charge connection has cracked and broken over time."
_
"It seems to hold charge well though."
_
"So then I did a little test even though I couldn't turn them off I unpaired the device from my phone (at this point the headphones are on standby) I went to sleep, and when I woke up I tried to pair the device again to my phone and it was able to do so again without charging again."

Clip

Clip:
"I'm hoping these cord clips will take care of that problem for me!"
_
"to get the clips in the wires is not as easy as it should be."
_
"They're not perfect though:-The clip to shorten the cable sometimes pulls my hair out."
_
"- Cord clip system is kind of annoying."
_
"even with the additional clips and components is hard to keep it on!"
_
"I feel like as a whole package its missing a clip to clip on your shirt to make sure it don't bounce around a lot."
_
"The shortening method and clip design is effective and partially makes up for the stiff wire."
_
"The over under option is awesome and the provided clips function well."
_
"BUT when I finally got the right size tips and figured out the right length to make them with the provided clips, they sound amazing."
_
"They are comfortable and sound great, but the ear clips and tips seem purposefully designed to fall off."
_
"Love the small included clips to adjust the cable to your head size."

Color

Color:
"I've given up on these and would advise others to steer clear of anything Jaybird makes--including the recent update to the Jaybird X2 (which is mostly a minor rebranding with new colors and--get this--packaged with Comply T-500 Eartips).As I said, CAVEAT EMPTOR."
_
"Only complaint is no blue color choice."
_
"HE TRIED TO MAKE THEM WORKALWAYS FELT LIKE THEY WERE GOING TO FALL OUT, BATTERY LIFE WAS SHORT, VERY VERY DISSAPOINTED...THE ONLY THING HE LIKED ABOUT THEM WAS THE CAMO COLOR VERY COOL! "
_
"I love this headsets they're the best you can get out there but the color schemes at the side tend to damage and maybe you'll have to return them but that is great"
_
"I did a thorough head shake test to see how well they would stay secure and they passed with flying colors."
_
"Also, I am enjoying that my version is completely of the black color."
_
"The sound quality is great, the color is cool, they fit well."

Connection

Connection:
"The build quality is pretty good, although the cover for the charge connection has cracked and broken over time."
_
"They are extremely inconsistent and do not maintain a good bluetooth connection."
_
"They have a horrible Bluetooth range that pulls in and out of connectivity continually, and no matter which fitting you try to use, they still slip and fall out of your ear."
_
"Only problem was during my run yesterday, the connection kept cutting off, which I think it may be due to my phone, not the headphones."
_
"Anyone looking to buy a pair of wireless bluetooth headphones for the gym, stop looking further and get yourself the bluebuds X. I have used numerous headphones at the gym over the years but have always been unhappy with the sound quality, fit, bluetooth connectivity or something else."
_
"The only concern is that sometimes the sound will skip bc the bluetooth connection is not clear, but it doesn't happen enough to bother me."
_
"Very happy with connectivity and sound quality! "
_
"The build quality is pretty good, although the cover for the charge connection has cracked and broken over time."
_

_
"Get them connected with my Galaxy was super easy and the quality of the sound is respectable."

Controller

Controller:
"I have an android phone, so any wired headphones do not have a compatible controller on the cord."
_
"The side with the controller seemed to stay in better but not great."
_
"Unfortunately the controller on these is too close to the ear bud, so trying to put them 'over the ear' would be impossible, or feel look awkward."
_
"The functionality left a bit to be desired around being able to skip songs using the attached controller."
_
"Controller unit works well, with many functions but there is a delay between when you push the button and it is ready to accept your voice command, a little annoying but you get used to it."
_
"Sound is great and also controller respond well with iPod Nano and iPhone 5."
_
"With the flat cable, the controller comfortably sits over and behind my left ear, so it's like the three buttons are grafted onto my skull."
_
"I love that partCons:-microphone is on controller, sux cuz I like to wear behind head."

Cordless

Cordless:
"The cordless design is good, a little too much cord that is hard to get setup but otherwise it was nice to not have a cord running into my pocket."
_
"Sleek, comfortable, durable, cool, cordless."
_
"I do like the Bluetooth cordless running and the fit of these is good, they just don't last and turn off on you out of the blue, guess that's where they got the name."
_
"love being cordless! "

Distortion

Distortion:
"I thought the Dre beats were overpriced for what they are and have get distorted bass with mediocre midtones, so I went with these."
_
"There's never a break, distortion, or hiccup with the JayBird Blue Buds X Sport.."
_
"SOUNDI also made the mistake initially of turning up the headphone volume to the max and controlling the overall volume with my phone... this resulted in sound distortion that had me worried."
_
"The bass on the earbuds is very good and not too distorted no matter now loud you go."
_
"The bass is good with no distortion but not too overpowering and the treble is also decent."

"They sound clear and loud, and don't distort at high levels like other headphones."
_
"Very clear and no distortion."

Fit

Fit:
"The combination of short and large diameter posts are the worst of two worlds and likely why many people complain about fit, staying in, and tips coming off in the ear."
_
"Putting them over the ear seems to fix the head turning problem, but trying to make them fit comfortably and stay in place is infuriating to say the least."
_
"The headphones fits well in my ears but I'd not recommended for long flights because it's a snug fit, and your ears will get sore."
_
"I originally rated these lower because they didn't fit well."
_
"The problem for me is the fit."
_
"They fit well and are super convenient."
_
"Nice fit as well."
_
"One thing I did notice that helps to ensure a better fit and improves comfort is by wearing them behind the ear."
_
"Outstanding headphones, great sound quality (I'm not an audiophile), the fit is outstanding (especially when you add in some foamies."
_
"Good fit for large ears and stays put while running or working out."
_

Functionality

Functionality:
"They sound great, fit great, and have good functionality (although the mic is TERRIBLE if you opt for the behind-the-neck fit), but they are deeply flawed and completely NOT moisture resistant."
_
"Some reviews of other similar sized products with this functionality indicated that they stopped working after a few workouts from excessive sweat."
_
"Functionality Ease of Use: (6 10) Setting these up was difficult."
_
"Good audio devices consist of three main areas: comfort, functionality ease of use, and sound quality."
_
"These things have been my go to pair Great mix of sound and functionality."
_
"They sound great, fit great, and have good functionality (although the mic is TERRIBLE if you opt for the behind-the-neck fit), but they are deeply flawed and completely NOT moisture resistant."
_
"and functionality is rather good (excluding the eartips, it's almost mandatory to buy comply tips unless you want these falling out of your ears)."

Indicator

Indicator:
"Con: No clear indicator that the ear buds are off lead me to leave them on and drained the battery a few times."
_
"My only complaint is that the battery indicator is pointless."
_
"I'm disappointed that the on screen battery indicator doesn't work with Android, and JayBird doesn't have an app."
_
"I've also tried covering the holes where the light indicator is located.. and they failed again.."
_
"My only 2 complaints are no battery life indicator for Android (Iphone users can see the battery remaining from the phone) and the stock tips fit horribly."
_
"They are a lot sturdier but they block most of the indicator light so it's hard to see the charging status."
_
"would be nice to have a battery indicator."
_
"They were very easy to pair with my iPhone, which showed a battery indicator on the screen (a feature found on iOS and newer Bluetooth devices)."
_
"A color changing LED status indicator is easily checked on the right side headphone."
_
"Best part about it for me is the battery indicator icon that displays next to the Bluetooth icon that shows the actual headphone battery percentage."
_
"The battery life is adequate and a battery status indicator makes keeping tabs on battery level pretty easy."

Jabra

Jabra:
"I mention those two, because in order to get the best sound quality from either of them, you had to use their app and even then, the sound quality with the Jabra was only about equal with the BlueBuds and the Samsung wasn't that good."
_
"Best headphones ever, got a pair of he jabra rox wireless beforehand and they were terrible."
_
"CONS...The ear buds have a steep price, the volume buttons make an annoying sound when pressed more versatility such as the jabra app or an equalizer."
_
"Gonna try a few headsets from Jawbone, Jabra or Plantronics and if those fail I go back to cables but these are going back for sure."
_
"Compared to the Jabra Sports which have horrible sound these blow those away."
_
"Jabra and Altec Lansing: These are both mediocre and have a combination of the issues mentioned above."
_
"My old Jabra Sports Headphone snapped after 3 good years of running, Gym and using them for gaming and of course the odd call here and there."
_
"Best headphones ever, got a pair of he jabra rox wireless beforehand and they were terrible."
_
"I read these were great, I used to have the Jabra Sport+ but they died."
_
"Don't get me wrong these are premium plastic and super light weight, but I did enjoy the fact that Jabra Rox just had a better feel to them."
_
"For $50 I tried the Jabra Step Wireless, which were more comfortable and had incredible sound."

Macbook

Macbook:
"The 2012 Macbook was terrible with several other bluetooth devices I'd used in the past and would never stay paired, but I had no issue with these."
_
"But I found out why they didn't sound as good with my Macbook Pro."
_
"its really good, but unfortunately i cant connect whit my macbook .whit iphone its excellent ."
_
"The only downside I have with the JayBird is the connectivity problems with my Macbook Pro."
_
"might be due to the rubber stretching over time and not providing as tight a grip on the headphone plastic-does not pair well with my macbook air (2012), for no good reason drops a lot."
_
"Pairing with my MacBook Pro took more effort, but I was finally able to pair it."
_
"Good quality when paired with my Macbook."
_
"Please don't get me wrong here, they paired beautifully the first time to my iPhone & then to my MacBook Air."
_
"I use these with my Galaxy S3, early 2012 Macbook pro, and a late 2013 Macbook Pro; not a single problem with any of them."
_
"I have since updated my Macbook Pro to bluetooth 4.0 with an Iogear bluetooth 4.0 dongle and the bluebuds now sound great when paired with my macbook pro."

Material

Material:
"The real issue was that the rubbery material on the wire would stick to your neck and it was very uncomfortable."
_
"The rubber like material use for the antenna wire is not great.3."
_
"Pros: great sound, light, good signalCons-falls when too sweetly not great for running, the ear piece material is too itch, no radio fm am signal-battery life sucks 1hr maxHad to regift to my sis :p"
_
"Quality of materials is great."
_
"Packaging was excellent, instructions were clear enough (took 15 minutes to get the right fit with the right combination of wings and buds), and materials all feel really solid and well put together."
_
"The included tips are a neoprene type material that seals the ears well."
_
"The carrying case is made of a nice material and held by a good magnet."
_
"Bose uses a similar wing tip to secure the earbuds, but are more comfortable due to the soft material."

Microphone

Microphone:
"The microphone is crappy."
_
"Microphone: I've had very few complaints when using these for phone conversations."
_
"As an additional minor disappointment--the in-line microphone is useless."
_
"The downside for me is the sensitive of the mic, and also the little plastic thingies that wedge the buds into my ears irritate me on heavy use days."
_
"The mic for the call quality isn't the best, but it suffices if you need to use it."
_
"They sound great, fit great, and have good functionality (although the mic is TERRIBLE if you opt for the behind-the-neck fit), but they are deeply flawed and completely NOT moisture resistant."
_
"Mic is good for phone calls, use it all the time."
_
"The mic is phenomenal, which is a nuisance when you're in a noisy place because it picks up all ambient noise as well."
_
"The microphone is also pretty decent, and people don't have a problem hearing me."
_
"I assumed I would be able to talk to Siri on my iOS via the mic, but haven't gotten it to work."
_
"The bass is WAY better with the Sennheisers and they also have a mic which let's you talk on the phone as well as volume controls."

Music

Music:
"The audio is lossless and while I don't care for it it's great for a phone call but nothing I like for my music."
_
"I use them extensively at the gym, and I can't even carry my phone in my pocket anymore without my music sounding like a terribly scratched CD."
_
"Not enough bass for me, it doesn't fit my ears too well and keeps falling out no matter how I put them in, and the beep when you change the volume is annoying as hell because it mutes the music."
_
"That is likely my fault, and the music quality is probably the most subjective part about this review."
_
"I run 30-40 miles a week and never listened to music because I hate the cords bouncing around and getting caught on my arm or hand."
_
"It was horrible to workout without music for the rest of the night."
_
"And of course, last but not least, the music was really quite good considering they are in-ear bluetooth headphones."
_
"For me I couldn't get them to stay in and give good enough music to workout with, so even if they had a good battery I probably wouldn't have kept them."
_
"I get hours on end of listening to music without any problems."
_
"The music is extremely clear, even at full volume."
_
"They do what they are supposed to do, which is provide a nice music experience wirelessly while having the ability to stay in your ears if you are moving a lot."

Plastic

Plastic:
"The downside for me is the sensitive of the mic, and also the little plastic thingies that wedge the buds into my ears irritate me on heavy use days."
_
"With foam tips I don't need the extra ear secure thing which means they're extremely comfortable, but I've never had an issue with in ear headphones that had adjustable sizes (only set I've ever had a problem with were the hard plastic Apple ones that constantly fell out)."
_
"After a few months use I realize just how cumbersome they are and the little door for the charging port broke off , it was held on by a plastic peace that is very narrow and brittle hence broke easy."
_
"The JayBird wing tips are made of a more rigid plastic that I found terribly uncomfortable."
_
"Sound is good and feel comfortable but little plastic cover for charger hole already broke off after just few months of use."
_
"The plastic pieces that fit in your ear aren't the best though."
_
"Build Design:Pleasant, sleek design, and remarkably similar to my other pair of BT headphones, the Plantronics Backbeat Go 2.Nice construction, although the plastic feels a bit cheap."
_
"Comes with a charge strap not a long cord and you must be carefull when opening up the plastic flap on one ear bud as it could easily break off."
_
"Good fit except the plastic pieces that the rubber earbuds go on are larger than average earbuds (wired) that I've used 100 times with no issue."
_
"I ordered a pair used from the Amazon warehouse, didn't work from the moment I opened the box, had very obvious wear, material of the headphones is honestly a cheap plastic, fit seemed nice but that doesn't matter when they don't work."
_
"Wish they used a more durable plastic I knew it would happen the day I opened it."

Power

Power:
"I had a power button failure while it was under warranty."
_
"Before these I owned a pair of Power Beats Wireless and I was always disappointed in how there would be a delay in the song or video with the sound to coming to the headphones."
_
"Was running today after fully charging at work, and it missed out a couple of times during my run then just said power off while in use and had been dead since."
_
"Bluetooth: did not disconnect once, easy to power on and off and automatically pairs each time with my iPhone."
_
"The worst of it all is that it would not turn back on when i held the power button in."
_
"So they sound great, been using for about 3 months now but I have a problem where the unit powers off with the slightest tap or bump to the left side earbud."
_
"There is no problem with the seal either (which was a problem with the Power Beats) and always felt nice."
_
"Another aspect that I love is the audible feedback that the headphones give you when you power on, connect to your phone, power off, etc."
_
"The left earphone sometimes shorts out of I turn my head in that direction, and the buttons a to stick add well, so sometimes if I press the power button to answer a call the headphones will turn off."
_
"it'll be nice if you can choose plug-in using the power from the music device or unplugged using battery like Bose does"
_
"I sometimes feel as if I have mutant ears, as no ordinary earbuds will ever stay in them securely, for everyday drivers I use Bose SIE-2i's because the medium earbuds fit me perfectly and never slip from my ears, a very tough find for me, and a very tough price for some to swallow, but quality, comfort and staying power make them worth my while."

_

_

Quality

Quality:
"That is likely my fault, and the music quality is probably the most subjective part about this review."
_
"HORRIBLE sound quality."
_
"Sound quality - not bad, not as good as previous modelFitting while running - kinda loose but at least the wiring can be tuck together around the back of your head"
_
"The sound quality can't match a decent pair of wired phones, but for Bluetooth phones, these sound pretty good."
_
"dont waste your money on this product i could hear evrything arround me, no noise cancel, poor sound quality, volume too low not fit well, im running 3 times per week 10km and i tell u is not a good product, is complex for pair with ur mp3 player or phone"
_
"Sound quality is mind blowing and sound cancellation is ridiculous you dont hear anything if you have them on with medium loudness."
_
"Very happy with connectivity and sound quality! "
_
"Outstanding headphones, great sound quality (I'm not an audiophile), the fit is outstanding (especially when you add in some foamies."

Reception

Reception:
"Reception is very good, altough not perfect when running."
_
"They are uncomfortable, they don't have great reception at all ranges advertised."
_
"Got reception problems when performing horizontal exercises near floor like abs."
_
"Although they never lose reception, they don't stay in ears well tight when biking despite the ear hooks which results in less bass."
_
"Reception connectivity without complaints."
_
"I'm in the process of moving, I can keep my device in the middle of the house and I get good reception throughout my entire 2800sqft house while packing."
_
"No problems with reception with phone in either pants pocket like some I've had w some."
_
"I can set my phone and keys on the counter in the center of the gym and I am able to move around without any issues with reception."

Reliable

Reliable:
"I would not recommend these earbuds to anyone who is looking for a reliable product."
_
"It could have been so easy to make this piece flimsy and cheap, but it's been reliable for six months- Cable adjustment."
_
"Would not recommend these to distance runners as the connection is not reliable enough."
_
"it will turn on or off, whenever it wantsand that is most of the times, its not reliable, expensive and customer service is not good so far."
_
"Although disappointing, it isn't surprising since the only reliable earbuds I've been able to use while running are those with a stiff hook over the ear which can be manipulated so the earbud remains specifically in place."
_
"Overall the headphones are a definite buy if you are looking for a pair of reliable and good sounding headphones, whether it be for working out or just regular use."
_
"I'm back to using my old reliable $30 Ironman Yurbuds headphones who have never failed me."
_
"Feel reliable and well built though it take a while to find right comfort and fit."
_
"They are literally perfect for anyone who wants an amazing sounding reliable and resilient headphone for gym use."
_
"The bluetooth connection is extremely reliable, and the sound quality is excellent."

Remote

Remote:
"RemoteI initially thought that having the remote behind my ear would be hard to get to."
_
"A few problems I encountered were the seal and the 3 button remote."
_
"Takes a little trial and error to sync up the 3button remote with fitness app and tunes."
_
"Only problem is with them falling out on the right side cause of the remote that weighs it down when you run: also, the carrying case it comes with is a plus."
_
"I experience most of the issues everyone else is experiencing:Sound constantly cuts outPoor fit (need comply tips, very tight fit)Erratic remote behaviorStopped working completelyAfter some time, the remote became erratic and started turning off the player then changing tracks randomly."
_
"Biggest draw factor besides battery life :)(Max reached for me was 6 hours due to it always being put at a high volume)Charging is super easy, the cover on the side with the remote removes in a breeze for easy access to the micro usb port, but shuts tight with a satisfying click."
_
"These headphones give you a lot of remote control over your phone, have great audio quality and battery life."
_
"Charging these is easy... just pop the cover off the remote side and plug it in!"
_
"I love that I can skip forward and back with the remote."
_
"As for the 3 button remote, the volume up down and pause work great, but for iOS devices such as my iPhone 5, When you try to do features such as skip track back and fast forward rewind, when you double triple click the middle button, like you would do on any other iOS compatible headphones, instead of skipping or going back, it enables a redial feature which calls the last person you made a call to which got annoying."

Rubber

Rubber:
"The only negative comment I have about these earphones is that the rubber hook tends to move out of place sometimes whenever I take my earphones out, or adjust it to put it in my hear."
_
"They allow you to make a mold of your ear and they replace those little crappy rubber wings that come with the Jaybirds."
_
"Nice bass, the rubber wings don't work well for me."
_
"You'd think after three years of having this product out there they would figure out how to fix this problem...also, the rubber tips are garbage but there are replacements out there to fix this issue, sad that again, after three years, they sell them with the useless rubber tips."
_
"Only downside for me was discomfort of earbuds they are hard rubber and did not fit well in my ear."
_
"Worse still, the ear cushions that are supposed to hook into the crook of your ear to keep the ear buds secure are made of a too soft rubber that barely did the job that it was intended and generally irritates my ear with long use."
_
"And the rubber tips come off too easily; I'm always having to find the stupid things when they fall on the floor and clean them."
_
"The secure fit rubber thingies are brilliant."
_
"I think there are foam replacement buds so i'll look into swapping out the rubber ones and hopefully that will help the comfort level."
_
"Good fit except the plastic pieces that the rubber earbuds go on are larger than average earbuds (wired) that I've used 100 times with no issue."
_
"The included rubber tips are very comfortable, but neither the medium nor the large would fit my right ear comfortably."

Shape

Shape:
"Other comments: I found the wings worthless and uncomfortable, probably due to my ear shape."
_
"As much as they worked at accommodating different ear shapes, they've missed something."
_
"The only drawback is the short and odd shape of the charging cord."
_
"That being said THESE headphones that i recieved were in great physical shape however one of the ear buds fails to work, there is no sound what so ever on one side."
_
"My ears are obviously a weird shape, as I had no luck with the headphones in any position, using all of the adaptors."
_
"The fit may be a problem, but I think that it's more the fact that these earbuds are an unusual shape and some people aren't putting them in properly."
_
"The volume buttons could be different shapes, which would have been easier to figure out which button is which, but that's kind of a minor gripe."
_
"That being said THESE headphones that i recieved were in great physical shape however one of the ear buds fails to work, there is no sound what so ever on one side."
_
"Like my previous wired headphones this set comes with three different sized tips and ear clips or secure fit technology as they call it, to shape the headphones to best fit your ear size and get the comfort you desire."
_
"I know that ears come in many different sizes and shapes, so I'd like to say they did the best they could, but the sad truth is I have five or six other cheap wired earphones ($20-$50) and they all stay in my ears just fine."
_
"After several attempts with different size combinations, I found what seemed to best match my ear size and shape."

Size

Size:
"It's good that they've partnered with Comply Foam to make custom buds, which leads to...Negatives: If you have small hear canals, don't even bother with these."
_
"Did not fit my ear.. small cusion is very small.. and pops out of ear.. and medium size is painfull after 5 mins.."
_
"simply great headphonesMy only two small complaints are that when adjusting volume up and down there is a short beep and pause in music and occasionally the music will skip very briefly if I fall out of running form to reach for a water bottle or look behind me (I wear them over ear and behind head)."
_
"They stayed in great when running, and the only time I ever had issues was when I lost a silicone ear bud (which I took off), so the smaller size didn't fit quite right, but that was my fault."
_
"The 3 buttons are all the same size so its hard to know which button you are pressing -- very annoying when I try to enable siri and the volume changes or I try to change the volume or skip songs and instead it cuts off music and siri kicks in"
_
"Great product, the extra sizes help keep them in the ear while running on the treadmill."
_
"Good earphones for the gym, the larger size ear hurt my ear a bit."
_
"simply great headphonesMy only two small complaints are that when adjusting volume up and down there is a short beep and pause in music and occasionally the music will skip very briefly if I fall out of running form to reach for a water bottle or look behind me (I wear them over ear and behind head)."
_
"The way that they fit into the ear has been designed well, and there are a lot of sizes that you can change on 2 different dimensions."
_
"As for the fit, the small ear tips work best for my ears and as you can see from the demonstration video, I do not even need the wing stabilizers to prevent them from falling out of my ears."

Sound

Sound:
"If you use Bose you will hate the sound coming out of these, if you use Skullcandy then they sound fantastic."
_
"These look nice, the case is impressive, and I thought it would be a no-brainer on these being the best, but the sound just wasn't impressive & in my opinion, if the sound isn't impressive then I don't care how they work in other areas."
_
"These headphones not only sound amazing but are also very durable."
_
"After only two months... the right speaker started getting scratchy like a blown speaker does... not a very pleasant sound right in your ear..."

Speaker:
"After only two months... the right speaker started getting scratchy like a blown speaker does... not a very pleasant sound right in your ear..."
_
"The speaker portion broke off the body of the headphone."
_
"The second problem with the Motorola headphones is that the right speaker went out after only 6 months."
_
"Only had them two months before one of the speakers failed."
_
"I use them at a higher volume to filter out the noise of chatter, clanking and the horrible Pop music being piped in on the gym speakers."
_
"I'm not able to hear from speaker phone or with the phone to my ear."
_
"e. not something that sounds like a $3 portable radio speaker.3) Ease of usei."
_
"Also the speaker for phone calls works great, use it for conference calls for work all the time and everyone says I sound fine."
_
"I have not used the bluetooth for a phone call, so I'm not sure how degraded the operation is with over the ear, which positions the speaker behind your ear."
_
"They have a good battery life, and the speakers in there are pretty high quality."
_
"The 'speaker' buds are really exceptionally large -- can't keep then secure in my ears regardless of earphone tip size."

Stability

Stability:
"Yes they provide more stability but I feel weird having them poke me."
_
"These are the best yet in terms of comfort, fit and stability, sound quality and bass response because of a good seal and just good drivers."
_
"If anyone is having the same problem, I would suggest purchasing the Comply T500 foam tips (they add so much comfort and stability) and the Decibullz BZ100 custom molded earbud adapters."
_
"Great stability when running."
_
"Nice sounds quality, better quality and stability when combined with t500 earphone tips"

"Fit well the 1st 3-4 weeks, but the stability went south afterwards."

Static

Static:
"At first i was skeptical about the static noise or white noise that some people complain or the comfort in the ear, I do Martial Arts and Calisthenics and these bad boys stick in my ears, doesn't matter if i handstand or if i do Muscle ups, run or simply move my head to try and get them out on purpose."
_
"The sound quality from my iPhone 5s was really disappointing - lots of static and garble."
_
"They kept going in and out, a lot of static, and sound quality wasn't as good as I had hoped for 199 dollars."
_
"I usually dont write a review but this the best device for the price....i spend a lot in bluetooth headsets..Here's what led me to buy this (i already was using the plantronics backbeat 2)double battery life 6-7 hrs (compared to 4hrs in plantronics) i can listen to music and take calls the whole work day 9-5 without charging2 hrs to full charge...even if I run out of juice i can keep it for charge during lunch break and will have charge for rest of the dayI usually have my phone in my right pocket in my khaki jeans....no connection issues when listening to music or calls with this..(Plantronics used to give annoying static and poor quallity if phone is not in your hand or the jacket shirt pocket) so yes ...it is a true handsfree device when you are on the go."
_
"They were the Jabra Halo's which had static, poor battery life, weak and unreliable connection."
_
"Very clear, no hiccups, no static."
_
"I picked up a set of $20 GLCON bluetooth earphones and they sound nearly as good, but have more frequent static and signal loss."
_
"The bluetooth range is good, but there are crackles of static and loss-of-signal for brief (but annoyingly frequent) periods even when the source is within a couple of feet."
_
"I now use Rocket Player for Android and this eliminated the random static when I play it on my Bose Soundlink also so I recommend downloading that."
_
"The sound quality is great, I've never experienced static or disconnects, and they stay out of my way when running and exercising."

Strap:
"If you use them for running, I highly recommend using a Flip Belt to carry your phone ipod instead of an arm strap which is so uncomfortable, cumbersome and ridiculous."
_
"The strap hangs around the back of your head- good!"
_
"Just strap up the back of the headphones with the aforementioned manager and you're good."
_
"They also suggest you can wrap the cable over the year and tighten the strap behind your head, so I tried that option as well, and for me, it worked much better that way."
_
"Don't wrap around my head well, so I wear under chin like a chin strap."

_
"the cap on the USB charger seems pretty flimsy too."

Wireless:
"Granted, I don't have any other wireless *in-ear* headphones to compare these with, but they weren't as good as the Skullcandy Hesh 2 Bluetooth 4.0 Wireless Headphones with Mic (Black) in terms of sound quality in my opinion."
_
"Before these I owned a pair of Power Beats Wireless and I was always disappointed in how there would be a delay in the song or video with the sound to coming to the headphones."
_
"I tried many different types of wired and wireless headphones and they all suffered from similar issues, the worst of them being that they wouldn't stay in my ears when I was sweating."
_
"The mic on this was an eh maybe becuase I put it on top and over behind my ears, instead of right next to my mouth...as the result i rarely use it.....also, what i had notice after using it for a couple month is that when u chewing gum while listening, the earphone will slowly slip out of your ears, and interference from other wireless device, but dont worry u have to be pretty close to these devices to get any interference..there also other minor stuff like beeping when changing song, and sometime it have trouble switching from one device to the other, but they just minors problem."
