"The BLU-100 look and feel like wired earbuds with a missing cable."
_
"While I go jogging l like to listen to music this has always posed the problem of having to find a way to jog while a cord is attached to my phone in my pocket or armband getting in the way, or using a bluetooth headset I didn't spend a lot of money on producing sound that made it not worth listening to the music."
_
"Overall, they are quite comfortable to wear, although I think the cord can get annoying if you are jogging or moving around, as it tends to bounce around."

"The carrying case is good and holds not only the earbuds, but a charging cable too!"

Charging

Charging:
"But charge doesn't last long, tends to come out when running and or sweating, and sound quality is very 'meh'.I didn't expect much from this earphones, but these are worse than the Kinivo BTH220 that I had... My Brainwavz BLU-100 is broken now; it does not charge (this is maybe after less than 10 running sessions).Beside from how it looks and the quality of the 'build' of the earphones, they didn't deliver."
_
"hahaBattery:Have run from full charge down to low (an annoying female voice starts yelling low battery at you) 3 times now and gotten about 5 hours of use each time."

Connection

Connection:
"The bad:* The little voice: the automated voice that tells you connecting, power on, power off sounds terrible."
_
"If anyone is like me when working out is that I like to walk away for a bit, get water, and unwind before going into my next set and now it's hard to do that when your music is skipping due to bad connection after 10ft."
_
"Only main issue I have is the fact that I guess the connection isn't so great."
_
"Connectivity issues: (a) The second big problem is the Blue Tooth Connectivity to an iPhone."
_
"My only gripe is the maximum distance required to keep a stable connection is not as good as the specifications of 10 meters."
_
"Connecting and pairing is simple enough without any hiccups."
_
"Sound is OK, easily pairable to bluetooth transmitter connected to TV."
_

"- what fun); but the connectivity is truly a pain."

Control

Control:
"The stuff I dislike that may be okay for you:* Separate volume control: the earbuds' volume control does not control the volume on my iPhone."
_
"Answering a call is easy; the microphone in the control unit has the usual problems but it's adequate and I was able to be heard well enough while walking busy city streets."
_
"My biggest complaint is actually the small buttons on the control switch."
_
"Overall, these are well built, made from quality materials, and work well with the only caveat being the control piece."
_
"My only complaint would be that they have no mic phone controls which a lot of earphones these days have and a lot of people want."
_
"The design of the control with the small buttons that aren't marked well and the hard to see led light, the poor Bluetooth range and highs being too high for me bring the headsets rating down."
_
"Control bar is easy to reach and performs well."
_
"Answering a call is easy; the microphone in the control unit has the usual problems but it's adequate and I was able to be heard well enough while walking busy city streets."

Fit

Fit:
"build- Flat cable, see below- Decent sound quality- WirelessCONS:- Mine had a 20 min lifespan- Buds are pretty big and they are big horizontal, not around, so they can look like Frankenstein neck spokes coming out of your ears- Flat cable is nice, but if you want to go OVER the ears and behind the neck, the fit kind of weird - round is better IMO- Ear plugs actually fit really wellI CAN'T recommend these."
_
"Finding the right headphones for exercising can be really irritating because of comfort and fit issues."
_
"Brainwavz include a set of silicon earpieces that you may attach to the earbuds to fit the grooves in your ears, but they are confusing and never seem to fit comfortably."

_
"Unfortunately, this is not good for serious listening because it lacks the required airy presentation."
_
"So to minimize my likelihood of going deaf, I can turn the earbuds volume down very low and then turn the iPhone volume up to it's max, but I generally want to be able to do some adjustment from the earbuds up and down depending on what i'm listening to and what my surrounding noise situation is like."

"Being an avid audiobook listener I'm always looking for ways to make my listening experience easier."

Pairing

Pairing:
