Button

Button:
"Very disappointed, the buttons to answer calls and adjust volume are very small."
_
"The only thing I have a problem with sometimes is the tiny buttons."
_
"half the time i'm pressing the wrong button when it comes to volume, pausing, or switching songs."
_
"Cons: Not the most comfortable, a little cheap feeling(volum buttons feel cheap and rattle a little, but functional and no problems relating to the cheap build quality).I've used these on long marathon calls(8 hours plus for installs)."
_
"The Review:The packaging, is a box which has a picture of the MEElectronics Air-Fi Journey AF16 on the front of the box along with a diagram on the back which mentions about the features of this headsetThe headset do have two identifying marks on it which is the MEElectronics logo on each ear bud The headset indeed lives up to the fresh design in my opinion...The headset come ear tips already installed something I like about these earphones is they stay in your ears while running and these eartips are thick enough to still stay in your ear without the worry of them falling outOn the right earbud you will find a place to put the included USB to charge the headset and the power button which will also be used to put the headset into pairing mode next to this is the volume buttons which I thought could of been placed on the left earbud and maybe have the buttons spaced out since I found it a bit of a challenge to turn up the volume while wearing the headset without having to take the headset to adjust then place back on my headThe headset comes with MicroUSB Charging Cable and instruction booklet which if you want to read it will give you a lot of helpful tips on how to wear the headset correctly in case you never had a sports headset before the earbuds of course go into your ears and the wire around your the back of your head."
_
"I only wish the buttons were easier to use."
_
"The buttons are easily accessible and I was able to quickly get used to their functions without looking at the manual that was provided with them."
_
"The buttons could be easier to press and the sound range could be better, but definitley the best value and fit in this price range and higher I have found."
_
"Finally, the micro-USB port as well as the volume and sync power buttons are all located on the right earpiece; the total weight of this pair of headphones is 0.6 ounces (18 grams).UseSoundwise, the MEElectronics Air-Fi Journey (or MAFJ, for short) headset is pretty good."
_
"Pairing the headset is pretty standard: hold the power button for roughly six seconds until the light is flashing rapidly and start the sync process on your desired output gadget."
