Bluetooth:
"For stereo Bluetooth headphones for exercise these are hard to top without paying 3x more"

Button:
"The volume next etc button is the same...hard to see and not easy for me to operate,Technically, the mic and earphones are quite good but do not compensate for the other complaints."

Cable

Cable:
"Only other con would be that the length of the flat cable is a little excessive."
_
"The cord is thick, and I don't foresee any durability issues with them."
_
"Unfortunately, I bought these for running and was a bit disappointed to discover that my movements caused the connecting cord to move in such a way that there was a knocking sound with each step."

"I quickly found out this was due to the cable not gliding smoothly over my clothing, instead it has a small rubber feel to it that grips fabric."
_
"Great sound when you adjust it in places Kind of hard to put in , cable in the back is bothersome."
_
"The only negative is the length of the charging cable; it needs to be longer."
_
"Although theyre wireless the ear buds are connected to each other by a tough, rubbery and very yellow cable which makes them easy to find if you set them down, but the band can stick to your neck causing it to tug on one of the earbuds when you move your hear."
_
"I love these things, except for the material that the cord is made out of."
_
"I love the flat cord so it does not tangle."
_
"Until then they sounded good and the cord was easily managed."

_
"The only problem is see is that the rubber stopper that covers the charging port is very difficult to get out."
_
"Only annoyance is the cover on the charge port - while great to keep out dirt also hard to open unless you have longer nails or some other sharp instrument."

Hook

Hook:
"I ended up returning these due the hooks and the comfort problem."
_
"After some attempts of adjustments, I found that using your fingers to hook over the top of the headphones towards the inner part of it while you press against the multifunction button with your thumb caused the headphone to move when you pressed down, but not jam into your ear canal per button press, which was a good method to incorporate from now on."
_

"Very happy with the sound quality and very easy to hook up to my LG Spotify."

Light

Light:
"One negative part is the power LED light."
_
"Broke after three weeks of very light use (recharged them twice)."
_
"However, this also is a disadvantage vs. the heavier wires because the light wire tends to stick to my neck when working out and thus the earpieces get tugged when moving around."
_
"The build quality feels and looks solid, they don't feel cheap or flimsy they are light, they do not feel like you shoved bricks in your ears."
_
"The other minor thing is when pressing the main button to connect to a device, my finger tends to cover the whole light up logo so it is hard to see when the light flashes red and blue."
_
"Sound is pretty good and they are light and don't bother my ears."
_
"They're so light and they work well."

Manual

Manual:
"The only negative comment of note is that the Multifunction button listed in the diagram in the users manual is shown incorrectly."
_
"They pair easily, and my only complaint is that the diagram in the setup manual suggested that the power button was on the opposite earbud than it was."
_
"Not the case here, these earbuds use the same micro-usb connection to recharge as a typical smartphone (except for iPhones, but I digress), so--- CONS ---- [INCORRECT LOCATION OF MULTIFUNCTION BUTTON]The manual I received indicated that the 'multifuncton' button was located on the earbud with the micro-usb charging port."
_
"It took me a minute to locate the device's controls; but I finally got the hang of them thanks to the manual and trial and error."
_
"The illustration in the Users Manual is incorrect and I suggest Taotronics fixes the labeling of the diagram parts between the left side and right side."
_
"TaoTronics always has good product manuals so they provide what you need to know about your device in these manuals, however if you ever have any questions about your new products (or old ones) all you have to do is contact the people at TaoTronics and they will be happy to answer any question you may have."
_
"But be patient to get on hand as it comesfrom out of USA, also the user manual is in english so it is easy to follow."
_
"But, the BEST function isn't even covered in the manual: if I hold the function button down for three seconds (or so) and let go, android (stock lollipop on a Nexus 6) will initiate voice dialing, letting me make calls without pulling out my phone!"
_
"The manual was easy to read and I paired and started using them within 2 minutes."
_
"They pair easily, and my only complaint is that the diagram in the setup manual suggested that the power button was on the opposite earbud than it was."

Music

Music:
"For $20 bucks they sound great BUT, you have to block your ear to listen to it, it's like listening music underwater, so it's not very comfortable..."
_
"If you play music, you won't be able to hear anyone talk at all."
_
"Here are the pros and cons I've discovered:Pros:comfortable - they stay in my ears too without having to push them too far intangle free cordreasonable sound quality - I'm not an audiophile, but if you're buying Bluetooth earbuds, you shouldn't be expecting that much anywaygood sound for either voice podcasts or music - not too much bass is goodCons:small charging port - like others have mentioned, the cover is tiny and it's hard to pop offdistorted sounds - keyclicks in particular sound bad and make it annoying to keep these earbuds on when not listening to musicoccasional cut out of sound - this happens even if I'm right next to the phone, but is fortunately not too commonstatic sounds when no music is playing - this is the biggest problem and why I'm rating these earbuds down."
_
"The ear phones are not just great for music, but are suitable for gaming as well as hands free operation."
_
"Usually, I'm too tired and breathing too hard to really listen carefully to the music when I'm running anyways, but the bass is not that crisp, which is sort of what you need a lot of when you're running - for those bass notes to get you running faster."
_
"The earpieces isolate most external sounds, so you don't need to increase the volume to uncomfortable or damaging levels to enjoy your music."
_
"They worked well with my iPhone for running and listening to music."
_
"It also has the latest CVC noise cancelling 6.0 technology which reduces the outside noise so you can get clearer sound from your microphone and you can hear your music clearer as well."
_
"And the sound quality seems good for the videos and some music I've played."
_
"TaoTronics is a very good company I have a bluetooth device of theirs in my car that I use for my music and love it."
_
"Great quality of music through the headphones."

Noise

Noise:
"too low of volume, bass is zero, the person on the other end complains of too much back ground noise."
_
"The buttons work smoothly but because the ear buds have a noise cancelling effect, pressing them will be an annoying experience when they are in your ears."
_
"Most box store bluetooth headphones start at $90 and go up to $299.Pros:Price Point - I could by a new set every year and be under my headphone budget, rather buy 15 of these then one Dre BeatsPrice Point - If I lose em or they start to fail, I will have a new pair in 2 daysCuts down outside noise - I can mow the lawn and still hear my baseball gameTime: I think I average 6 hoursSize: they don't look obnoxious, people don't realize you are wearing themWires: I F***ing hate wired headphonesCons:First Fit: Slight discomfort for the first week as you get use to them - after that its magicPower: Just be aware of your usage, once power is low, you're cookedBoth Ears: have to wear em with both ears in, with one hanging the weight is too much and pops the other ear out"
_
"With this headset in my ears while driving and talking on the phone, I'm unable to hear outside noises."
_
"But I am worrying about the tight fitted tip, indeed it provided deep bass, yet it also create a lot of cable noise, which could be a problem for sports."
_
"Even though I'm not able to hear the treadmill noise when running on the treadmill but I kept hearing a weird sound (like the earphone rubber moving up and down in my ears and created some type of noise).Pros:cheap."

Pairing:
"Inconsistent pairing."
_
"My complaint is with the pairing - worked great with my iPhone 6 the first few times but now have to cycle bluetooth on & off and forget device each time to connect."

"The instructions are thorough when it comes to the more obvious functions such as pairing, increasing decreasing volume, etc., but they fail to include information on just how to use the multifunction button!"

Plastic

Plastic:
"Only problem I have with it is removing the plastic cover for the USB charging intake."
_
"While I do not like earbuds, I can tolerate them as long as they are somewhat small and spongey; unfortunately, with these, no matter which size buds I put on, they don't seem to soften the hard plastic underneath, and they get painful after a few minutes."
_
"The plastic cover USB connector is very hard to remove it."
_
"I put 5 stars even though the plastic clip is little irritating and i can't wear them longer than an hour, but for that price it just cant be better! "
_
"It's also an extremely ugly earphone, it's a big white chunk of plastic easily seen if you got short hair and for some reason double tapping the main button didn't skip to the next song, but instead called a random contact..."
_
"When I opened the shipping pack, I found one of the clear plastic containers the headphones were in was all scratched up as if it had been drug under a forklift in a warehouse."
_
"Unnecessary, but it makes you feel good knowing they're metal and not plastic."
_
"Pros:+ Good, comfortable, secure fit+ Good sound quality+ Plastic ear hook works well+ Hands-free functionality and microphone+ Can be paired with two phones at onceCons:- Charging port difficult to open- Bass sometimes a little jarringOverall, I'm very impressed with these earphones."

Plug

Plug:
"The loops over the ear plugs are silicon and fit inside that weird curve above the ear holes."
_
"Pulled the instructions out of the drawer, couldn't figure out which end of the little plug to attempt to pry open, Took a chance and started from the middle, got the rubber stopper out and plugged in the mini usb charger."
_
"The USB plug is hard to open if you don't have fingernails."
_
"only downside is the access point to plug in for recharge can be a pain to open."
_
"Cons: (there are very few)-Charging port: the plug that covers the charging port seems to be very flimsy when you remove the plug and the plug is a little hard to remove unless you have fingernails or something small to pry it open."
_
"No major problems keeping the plugs in my ears."
_
"Strengths:- The overall quality is excellent given the price- Comfortable, multi-size soft ear plugs- Device pairing and set-up is straightforward- The multi-function button and volume buttons work well and are easy to figure out- Battery life is fine (I have never used to more than 3 hours in one day)Weaknesses- The USB charging port cover is very hard to open (I leave me twisted open and may cut it off)- Sound quality is decent, but not audiophile quality- Left and right are not clearly labeled, so it takes a close inspection to tell them apart (should have an added colored dot)- Synchronizing the sound can take 10-30 seconds after connection"
_
"They were a little uncomfortable but the good thing was the buds came with different size ear plugs so they were adjustable and easy to take on and off."
_
"It fit me well out of the box but comes with different size plugs and loops to customize fit."
_
"I like how it came with multiple adjustable ear plugs and the battery seems to last a very good while."

Range

Range:
"There are a few things that irk me about them, they can be uncomfortable and, with certain devices they have a very short range."
_
"The sound quality is not bad; it has a decent range for any casual listener, but would probably not stand the test of a die-hard audiophile."

_
"For this price, they are not phenomenal but the quality matches the price range."

Rubber

Rubber:
"It is possible that the flimsy rubber looping on each ear should function as additional support, but it was far too small and pliant to sit firmly in my ear."
_
"The only problem is see is that the rubber stopper that covers the charging port is very difficult to get out."
_
"I quickly found out this was due to the cable not gliding smoothly over my clothing, instead it has a small rubber feel to it that grips fabric."
_
"-My only complaint is the little rubber thing covering the micro usb port its easy to forget which direction it pulls away from so it was a pain to pull the cover off to charge the first time"
_
"The loop piece that add extra lock is made from rubber and does not hold very well."
_
"Even though I'm not able to hear the treadmill noise when running on the treadmill but I kept hearing a weird sound (like the earphone rubber moving up and down in my ears and created some type of noise).Pros:cheap."
_
"Recommendation to Manufacturer: Replace the silicone with a rubber that grips the skin... silicone doesn't have high friction (that's why it's used on non-stick tools in the kithen)."
_
"Performance: 9 10Once I received the item I went for a run and not once did it come out of my ear thanks to the extra support of the little rubber piece it was able to stay in my ear throughout the whole run."
_
"I feel that it would easily break as opposed to a soft rubber plug."
_
"They come with 3 sets different size ear tips as well as rubber rings that sort of fold into your ears to anchor them."
_
"The TT-BH03 Bluetooth Headphone's have two soft rubber cushions for comfort and style."

"For this price its ok its not easy wear for small ear."
_
"Very satisfied - had a small battery glitch with the first pair but the company shipped out a second within days."
_
"The rubber loops to keep them in your ears only came in one size and they are kinda too weak to keep them in my ears when doing high intensity stuff or stretching my neck."
_
"So if you ear canals are relatively small, these may not work well for you."
_
"I quickly found out this was due to the cable not gliding smoothly over my clothing, instead it has a small rubber feel to it that grips fabric."
_

"Where I have a problem is the combo with their blue tooth transmitter ( TaoTronics TT-BA01 Wireless Portable Bluetooth Stereo Music Transmitter (Not A Bluetooth Receiver) for 3.5mm Audio Devices (iPod, MP3 MP4, TV, Kindle Fire, Media Players...) The two connect easily and work well when you are within about 20 feet directly in front of the TV(or transmitter.)"
