Battery

Battery:
"Only down fall is he sound quality is not as good and I need to recharge the battery more often."
_
"Motorola BT (forget model but a few years old - Never liked the fit and battery was crap after 3 monthsI do like the Jabra Clipper and a few of the BT connectors for normal Headphones -NOTE - I read the F'in manual to understand connecting, changing volume and how to wear the headset etc... so I do wonder if otehr might skip this step :)"
_
"I also love the voice prompts that the device has , it tells you when its ready to pair, if your connect or not as well as letting you know what the battery level is."
_
"So I have a pair of Motorola S10-HD and the battery went dead so I bought these."
_
"Cons: can't wear glasses, battery life is the worst of the 3 I believe, and the reason I returned them is they fit very loosely in your ear no matter what you do."
_
"-The battery is weird."
_
"The sound is very good, but after a single use so the battery has discharged it does not chaged more."
_
"Battery life (pre-death) seemed extremely good."
_
"They work flawless, lite weight, and battery life is very good approx 6 hrs sometimes longer."
_
"The battery has held a good charge for the hours that I have used them."
_
"Up to this point, the battery holds a good charge, the gels are perfect fit, the sounds is extremely nice and they are snug."

Bluetooth

Bluetooth:
"My understanding is, this is a problem related to the Bluetooth protocols so I doubt that this problem will get fix with any of the current models of Bluetooth 3.0 and older."
_
"Disappointing, but this seems to be the norm with many of these Bluetooth products."
_
"Press the button behind the left side, you'll hear a little piano jingle followed by a Euro-accented sound telling you to select and attempt to pair on your bluetooth device."
_
"The best bluetooth headphones for spoken word are the Sony DR-BT160AS who's midrange treble tend to sound brash, aggressive and unappealing for anything but lossless music but they shine at bringing out definition to awefully low definition 16kb s podcasts where others tend to sound more throaty and boomy in the 50-400 HZ area making ithem less appealing for spoken word like the S10HD which are Bluetooth version 2.0 which don't have the nice treble of the APT-x bluetooth 3.0 headphones which the newer devices take advantage of."
_
"Just to ensure that my chargers weren't the problem I plugged in my phone and a bluetooth speaker and both started charging immediately."
_
"These headphones are the best value on the market, under $50 for a bluetooth headphone kit is pretty excellent."
_
"I spent a bit of time researching the best bluetooth running headphone."
_
"If you are looking for a good set of Bluetooth headphones, these aren't for you."
_
"The sound quality is great the bluetooth is really convenient."

Button

Button:
"The power button felt odd and sometimes I felt as if it broke while trying to press it."
_
"Buttons do not respond easily to touch - it's hard to know if you are pressing them."
_
"The only complaint I have is with the buttons."
_
"The volume buttons are stiff, and the multi-purpose button is very hard to press."
_
"The only drawback is while on the phone, their microphone is not as good as the Motorola S10-HD and there are fewer buttons for options."
_
"They were easy to pair and the button placement was self-explanatory."
_
"Second, as your body is bouncing, the top metallic button for play pause skip is actually pretty difficult to use."
_
"- Easy to use buttons."
_
"It pairs nicely and I thought the buttons were well placed and easy to use."
_
"Great push buttons."

_
"Only had them a few weeks and started to see problems (charging light stopped working, corrosion started inside were you plug the usb cable in to charge the headphones, trouble pairing with phone)."
_
"Amazon sent me a pair that weren't in a retail box and were missing all the accessories except the charger and the buds that were attached to the headphones themselves, they could be refurb or returns..."
_
"Now the headphones are completely dead and will not charge at all."
_
"Perhaps this is a problem with just my unit, but one more than one occassion I will charge the unit and get an indicator showing that it is connected only to have it be dead in the morning."

"The battery has held a good charge for the hours that I have used them."
_
"Up to this point, the battery holds a good charge, the gels are perfect fit, the sounds is extremely nice and they are snug."
_
"The battery life is only about 5 hrs.....this doesn't pose a problem for me because it uses the same charger as my Galaxy S3.I've only own this pair for two weeks so I can't really comment on them not being sweat proof."
_
"Is battery life good - YES - but I do charge after my workouts which is no more then 3-4 hours4."

"Great battery life and AC charger included5."

"Perhaps this is a problem with just my unit, but one more than one occassion I will charge the unit and get an indicator showing that it is connected only to have it be dead in the morning."

_
"The connection works very well, doesn't fit that we'll onto less than large ears."
_
"it paired very easy with my phone and stays connected all the time."
_
"If it can't stay connected from 2 feet away, what good are they."

_
"Unable to control volume with my Android phone - the headphones seemed to override the phone's volume."

_
"The controls (I only use pause and skip) are easy to use, even when running hard."

Design

Design:
"Terrible design."
_
"A major disappointment seeing as the product is supposed to be designed to withstand athletic activities."
_
"This is not well designed."
_
"These are not at all durable, and that's unfortunate because they would be the best design for a bluetooth stereo headset so far, but not if it falls apart after a few months."
_
"That is horrible, obviously it is a faulty design if I've had 4 headsets and they've all failed within a month."
_
"It's not a good design."
_
"The old design was more rigid but did not have the same problem."
_
"Not as bad as some of the competition, but I think Jaybird has the most sleek design."
_
"To start, I have to say they are the best design I have seen for bluetooth headsets so far."

Fit

Fit:
"Broke after short time, also didn't fit well."
_
"These tend to fit a bit to tightly on my head so I wasn't happy with the fit."

_

Jabra

Jabra:
"The Jabra headphones have connection problems and even when held in my right hand (the side closest to the bluetooth receiver in the headset), the signal is dropped intermittently."
_
"I also have the Jabra Sport and Plantronics BackBeat 906 and they are also somewhat flimsy (though Jabra Sport feels more solid durable) and I'd recommend you to be more careful when using wearing these type of stereo Bluetooth headset."
_
"The SF's do go louder than the jabra though but that's not a good thing to have ear buds blasting."
_
"On the plus side jabra customer support was very good about replacing the headset and I did like these for the year I had them."

"The Motorola headphones have a clear advantage over the Jabra headphones in this regard."

Light

Light:
"People that complain about these headphones 'durability' are failing to realize that they are so light and so efficient that they are not as durable as some of the full-blown over the head plastic protected headphones they may be comparing them with."
_
"Only had them a few weeks and started to see problems (charging light stopped working, corrosion started inside were you plug the usb cable in to charge the headphones, trouble pairing with phone)."
_
"(just picked up the Philips SHB6017, only had them for a few hours, fingers crossed).My s10 and jaybirds are both having issues, s10's have the blue light of death (possibly my fault, charged them almost immediately after a heavy sweaty workout, should have let them dry off first)."
_
"The headset is light and fits comfortably in my ears (though it takes some time to find the right angel and fit it right in)."
_
"They are light weight and stay in place perfectly, even when on my back."
_
"On the plus side they are extremely light and stay perfectly in place, even when running fast, also are comfortable to wear for prolonged periods of time."

Music

Music:
"The music sound was just ok, not the best not the worst ever (but in my opinion the worst out of the three, jabra sport, sf600)."
_
"The drawback has always been, you needed both kinds if you want to:* listen to music in stereo* hassle of wires* the expense of buying two devices."
_
"I love that I can listen to music, audio books and talk on the phone without having a wire tied to my phone or IPOD."
_
"Maybe with 4.0 gets better but nothing worth to give up the wire if you like good sound quality when listening to music."
_
"Audio quality is great and I enjoy listening to music while at the gym or when going shopping."
_
"The other (dented) silicons are better for sport, but the bass frequencies are all gone, so they're pretty much useless for music."

_
"Only down fall is he sound quality is not as good and I need to recharge the battery more often."

"After reading many reviews for many different bluetooth headphones, it seems the technology is not perfected, that many units have problems with recemption, fit, sound quality, and sweat."

Voice

Voice:
"The noise cancellation on this thing is so weird that it will cancel your voice if you have any smidgen of echo in your background (as in - you are in any enclosed space)."
_
"I have a very nice Jawbone headset that I use for most voice calls and people sometimes complain about hearing an echo of there own voice."
_
"If you're looking for a headset to listen to music or voice, this is a great option, but if you also need something that allows you to talk, look somewhere else; the microphone on this one is very, very bad."

"Voice is clear and it does not isolate the environment completely, which is a plus for me."
_
"I have a very nice Jawbone headset that I use for most voice calls and people sometimes complain about hearing an echo of there own voice."
