Audio

Audio:
"However, I've noticed that bluetooth performance has weakened progressively over time - beginning with cutting in and out a few times while running to full on being unable to play audio clearly unless the source device was being held directly in front of you (I can't put my phone in either pocket or even my backpack without the audio getting choppy)."
_
"Originally, they were great - decent (not great) range, bassy audio (if you're into that), and comfortable."
_
"First of all: I am an audiophile and my search was for a earbuds with great sound, but even if the sound of this set is Very Good, is not excellent, mostly because the bass frequencies are increased too much (is said in the box manual: with warm bass tuned to eliminate listener fatigue during long workouts, it seems in sports this is important, but not for me, I love a natural sound and this earbuds provides a audio output that isn't natural at all)Second: I tryied all the provided fitting devices and all the sound isolation eartips, but no matter wat fitting device I use, the earphones ends out of my ears when I run (and I bought this set to use mainly during my runs, that last between 6 and 9 hours per week) , and the sound quality decreases dramatically when the earbuds comes off your ear just a little...The bluetooth connection is very good, it pair very fast with my phone, and even if the manufacturer suggest to use in the right arm, I use it in my right pocket or in a running belt, and the connection is good enought with just a few moments of loss of signal."
_
"Audio quality isn't the best, but got these at a bargain price and they do fine for the gym."
_
"Muffled audio, not clear or crisp at all."
_
"For the money I would not recomend these to anyone but a audio book person because they are comfortable but if you have any idea what music is supposed to sound like you will not get it out of these."
_
"Great audio quality, no comparison to cheap headphones!"
_
"I am by no means an audiophile, but I can distinguish between what constitutes good audio and bad audio."
_
"For $85, I wanted something that at least offered crisp and clear audio."
_
"Lightweight, decent audio, no messy tangle of cords, rechargeable, impossible to dislodge when walking or running even when damp."

Battery

Battery:
"I bought a second pair in fact so I could have backup if the battery goes dead."
_
"sound of these is amazing and very good low end, battery life is solid only problem i have is i wish the cord was either a little shorter or longer."
_
"I liked a lot JayBird products, but this last one has a problem with the battery, you charge during the morning and at the afternoon all the charge was lost, and you need wait a new charge...I believe is a quality problem."
_
"Now, the thing that is the absolute most annoying aspect of these headphones is the battery is almost dead indicator."
_
"The Bluetooth connection is terrible; the battery begins to fail after two workouts (remember to keep the charge up after each workout) and these are fairly bulky and heavy on the ear, I know Jaybird has a smaller more updated model, but those are also much more expensive."
_
"Not sure about the battery life complaints because once I use them I charge them."
_
"The battery life is good."
_
"I used them almost every day and was very happy with them until the battery died."
_
"The headphones worked great for about 14 months, but now the battery has stopped holding a charge."
_
"-Battery life is very good."
_
"-The battery life was also good enough."

Bluetooth

Bluetooth:
"The bluetooth was weak to begin with and now they won't even hold a charge."
_
"The Bluetooth connection is terrible; the battery begins to fail after two workouts (remember to keep the charge up after each workout) and these are fairly bulky and heavy on the ear, I know Jaybird has a smaller more updated model, but those are also much more expensive."
_
"The outside portion of these are rather large as it contains the volume controls in addition to the Bluetooth receiver which I believe contributes to the discomfort I feel when wearing these."
_
"Perhaps this is just a side-effect of the shortfalls of Bluetooth technology, but I was kinda disappointed."
_
"I run in the gym 2-3 times a week and I've had problems in the past with other bluetooth headsets failing (likely due to sweat)."
_
"This means the Bluetooth reception is terrible, cutting out about every 20-seconds with a fresh charge and every 5-seconds an hour into a run."
_
"I freaking LOVE my MMOVE bluetooth earbuds!"
_
"They sounded okay, they had plenty of the skipping that is all too well known with bluetooth headphones, very difficult for me to get the right fit with these."
_
"They had really good sound, the bluetooth range was good, they had great accessories that allowed them to fit in your ears snugly while working out, etc."
_
"** The Bluetooth connection has worked very well for me."
_
"These things are great and I if you are looking for a first pair or a new bluetooth headphones, I would give the Jaybirds a try."

Body

Body:
"My experience on the bicycle, while new, has been relatively good fewer connection problems as the phone is farther away from my body, similar to the gym."
_
"Bluetooth range is not the greatest, especially if your body is interfering with which side your cellphone is kept."
_
"If objects or bodies (including your own by wearing it on the wrong side of your body in relation to the transmitter) blocked that, they would tend to cut in and out."
_
"I was looking for headphones that I could wear to the gym because sometimes wires get annoying when moving weights across your body."
_
"-In general, the signal strength was good enough when my phone was on my body or in my hand, but would cut out if I walked more than about 10 feet away from my phone."
_
"I'm no longer tied to my ipod, and I can wander around quite a distance from it and hear perfectly - as long as there isn't anything (pole, body) between me and the ipod."
_
"TO GET THEM TO WORK BEST: When I'm running, I have to have the iPod on right side of my body where the technology is in the headphone."
_
"Must have your phone mp3 device on the right side of your body for best BT connection, which I use an arm band most of the time."
_
"I followed all the directions on where to place the device on your body to get the best Bluetooth reception and it still drops connection quite frequently."
_

Button

Button:
"The power button is also annoying."
_
"Pros:-Great sound-Great aesthetics-Simple controlsCons:The only problem I have is that the buttons are a little hard to press while running; it's not a huge task but I feel like it could be easier."
_
"The buttons are also very small and hard to press with my fingers."
_
"The multi-function on off button is failing."
_
"Holding a volume button for 3 seconds to skip a track can become frustrating."
_
"-It was sometimes hard to tell if the headphones were turned on or off, and it was easy to hold the power button too long and put them into pairing mode."
_
"I bought mine at best buy and after 2 month the pause power button got very loose and started ratteling so I called it in and they gave me a new pair the new pair lasted me 3 months because the same thing wit the pause power button happened and then the left headphone stopped working"
_
"These are very comfortable and easy to use, with volume track control buttons, as well as the usual on off answer hook button."
_
"One limitation I found with the holding down of the buttons to skip tracks is that it worked great for going forward a track but if you wanted to go back to a previous track, it was impossible."

Cable

Cable:
"Downsides included a cable that would get stuck on your neck if you turned your head (usually yanking one of the ear buds out) and audio that bordered on being muddy."
_
"When I got them, I didn't have a charging cord and ordered the wrong size."
_
"sound of these is amazing and very good low end, battery life is solid only problem i have is i wish the cord was either a little shorter or longer."
_
"I guess my only criticism is the rubbery stuff the cord is made from."
_
"I think the older model of these came with an odd USB cable which cannot be easily found in stores."
_
"My one complaint with these is that the cord that wraps around the back of your neck is very, very long."
_
"I liked these because I could run without worrying about a cord getting caught on something, but they haven't held up as well as I would've expected for a device advertised for active use."
_
"Good luck if you can get the cable to actually charge the device."
_
"I pulled one of the ear pieces off the cord through my own carelessness, and the customer service to replace it was great."
_
"The neck cord rubber seems to be of good quality.4."
_
"Considering there are only 3 buttons I did keep the user guide just in case, but the major controls are pretty easy to remember, The cord between the ear buds is a bit long for me but better too long than short."

Charging

Charging:
"Headset stopped charging and unable to power on."
_
"When I got them, I didn't have a charging cord and ordered the wrong size."
_
"Design for the charging port is worst I've seen on a product and the engineer behind it needs a suspension or beating."
_
"My next set worked fine, again, for about a month and a half before the charge started to fail; I was running a marathon and the buds died after two and a half hours, mush shorter than the advertised 8 hour battery life."
_
"The charge doesn't hold that well and the sound quality is not top-notch."
_
"The bluetooth was weak to begin with and now they won't even hold a charge."

Comfortable

Comfortable:
"Originally, they were great - decent (not great) range, bassy audio (if you're into that), and comfortable."
_
"But these freedoms weren't as good sounding to me, the ear hooks were not as comfortable as I was expecting, I also prefer the Blue Buds due to their smaller size."
_
"For the money I would not recomend these to anyone but a audio book person because they are comfortable but if you have any idea what music is supposed to sound like you will not get it out of these."
_
"They aren't very comfortable and a bit of a hassle to put on."
_
"Their forte is definitely the sound quality, comfort and fitting options, and their weakness the relatively short battery life."
_
"The sound is great they are very comfortable and have been extremely durable."
_
"great fit and comfort, battery life at 4.5 hours is a pain to charge often, and the interruption of signal can occur easily if iPhone or other device is not worn correctly, get a belt to hold the iPod on right side and there is limited issues"
_
"The sound was great and they are comfortable to wear for hours at a time whether working out, working in the yard, or just doing chores around the house."
_
"After spending about ten minutes trying the different sized ear buds and the locking..hook things (i forget what they called them), shaking my head, walking, bouncing, sitting and listening to find the right fit, I was amazed at how comfortable they are."
_
"(Sweats impact is more impactful to comfort, discussed below).Comfort and fit: While the set came with three options for earbud size, two inner ear clips and one over ear clip, none of them really fit my ear well."

Connection

Connection:
"This is pretty disappointing as I enjoyed the fit, sound & connectivity of these ear buds."
_
"They say you have to have your phone around your upper body so the connection isn't disturbed and this is definitely true and annoying."
_
"My experience on the bicycle, while new, has been relatively good fewer connection problems as the phone is farther away from my body, similar to the gym."
_
"Now, the weird part of the connectivity issues is when Im in the gym, I can leave the phone half way across the room (lets say 15 feet) and the connection is fine, but if I put it in my pocket the connection continuously drops."
_
"The Bluetooth connection is terrible; the battery begins to fail after two workouts (remember to keep the charge up after each workout) and these are fairly bulky and heavy on the ear, I know Jaybird has a smaller more updated model, but those are also much more expensive."
_
"Unfortunately, many reviews on Amazon dont mention how large a problem it is, or how annoying it is for the connection to go in and out while youre trying to exercise."

"My experience on the bicycle, while new, has been relatively good fewer connection problems as the phone is farther away from my body, similar to the gym."

Cushion

Cushion:
"I'm able to get a more secure fit with the over the ear pieces and I find the ear cushions to be uncomfortable."
_
"The only thing I recommend is changing the ear cushions since the ones that came with it are uncomfortable to us."
_
"Bought the Comply brand cushions for them now they are perfect! "
_
"The only thing I recommend is changing the ear cushions since the ones that came with it are uncomfortable to us."
_

_
"Once I was able to choose the right ear cushions the seal was good."
_
"My ears fit best with the medium ear cushions and ear tips and they are quite comfortable in the ear canal and fit snug."

Fit:
"This is pretty disappointing as I enjoyed the fit, sound & connectivity of these ear buds."
_
"Only negative comment in have is pieces that go in the ear don't fit well."
_
"the worst headphones i have ever used.1) does not connect reliably.2) very feeble sound.3) the earplugs dont fit well at all.4) lots of background disturbance when talking."
_
"Just could not get a comfortable fit and as sweat builds up in the ear canal, with the pounding on a treadmill...they always felt they were working their way out of my ear."
_
"They are a little uncomfortable to be honest... they seem to fit in my ear fine i guess but the cable bounces around while i run which sends loud noise feedback into my ear and it also just plain out gets in the way while working out."
_
"bluetooth connection is patchy and doesn't fit well especially when running at a higher speed"
_
"Nice quality headphones, good fit, decent quality sounds, stayed in during my runs."
_
"They stay in while running various terrains and fit comfortably."

Hook

Hook:
"But these freedoms weren't as good sounding to me, the ear hooks were not as comfortable as I was expecting, I also prefer the Blue Buds due to their smaller size."
_
"I use the ear hook, not the hexagon piece because they aren't comfortable to me."
_
"The over the ear hooks rotate and pivot but are not quite as comfortable as the other options included."
_
"If you still aren't satisfied, they do include over the ear hooks you can attach for a more traditional fit."
_
"The over the ear hooks are great."
_
"What I can say about them to help others is the ear hook thing they offer works really well."
_
"I love how comfortable these are, and along with the included accessories (in-ear hooks and over-the-ear clips, you can choose which ones to use) it takes quite a bit of force to get these to budge."
_
"These are very comfortable and easy to use, with volume track control buttons, as well as the usual on off answer hook button."
_
"My good friend and running partner uses the hooks on his and I use just the flange pieces for instance."

Indicator

Indicator:
"The same thing, dead, will not charge, no indicator lights, nothing."
_
"Now, the thing that is the absolute most annoying aspect of these headphones is the battery is almost dead indicator."
_
"I love these, the only problem is that there isn't an indicator light to tell you when they are on."
_
"Then as fate would have it when I plugged them in one night to charge, the led indicator failed to light up."
_
"The only drawback, when the battery is dying, you get the sound indicator when there is about 5 minutes left."
_
"Until the charging is either more reliable, or there is a better status indicator, I would avoid at all cost."
_
"Battery life has been pretty good just wish there was some indicator other than it beeping before it dies."
_
"I love these, the only problem is that there isn't an indicator light to tell you when they are on."

_
"Would be nice to have battery indicator on smartphone."

Listening

Listening:
"It sounds good, but you can tell there is a little more bass and a little less treble, and for me it was almost.....weird... when I first started listening."
_
"I really wanted a good pair of noice-cancelling headphones (I have the Motorola S305 that rests over the ear, but it's not good for listening to music or movies in noisy places), but I wanted something that would be easy to carry around with me, so not bulky over-the-ear headsets, and something that would not constantly fall out of my ears."
_
"Longer listening sessions produced a little discomfort, but nothing out of the norm or unbearable."
_
"I ultimately gave up: between extremely short battery life and hollow flat dull sound, I just didn't enjoy listening to music anymore."
_
"These are awesome for wireless listening - great for workouts & travel so you can leave your phone iPod iPad in your bag or pocket & listen without being tethered by a cord."
_
"After spending about ten minutes trying the different sized ear buds and the locking..hook things (i forget what they called them), shaking my head, walking, bouncing, sitting and listening to find the right fit, I was amazed at how comfortable they are."
_
"Its great vacuuming around the house listening to music without accidentally getting your cord caught and popping your headphones out or something like that."
_
"Listening to music and talking through them sound great."
_
"Perfect for working out, golf, cycling, and simply for pleasure of just listening to music from your bluetooth device."

Loud

Loud:
"The only negative is the volume is not as loud as I would hope for."
_
"I've had these earbuds for a couple of days now, and the only real problem I have with them is that it doesn't seem like they're quite loud enough."
_
"Disappointed with how loud these are."
_
"I used it for 10mn, I heard a big loud noise and it was just DEAD."
_
"Loud and clear...good bassThe only downside is the shorter battery life due to the small light size."
_
"These don't get super loud, but I still love them."
_
"Additionally, I could hear them loud and clear as well."
_
"Only thing is they don't go really loud, but probably a good thing."

"Sound great, loud enough to block out people and gym music."
_
"sound is pretty good and balanced, but not loud enough for me."

Microphone

Microphone:
"The mic is not that much great when your outside of your home ."
_
"The only downside to these which I really wish was better is the microphone."
_
"The microphone is mediocre (it helps to take the right bud out of your ear and speak directly into it if you want to be heard without yelling) but is fine for conference calls where you only have to speak intermittently."
_
"As far as voice - I could hear clearly, but the microphone was terrible!"
_
"I tested my mic on the voice recorder as well and had no trouble there, either."
_
"I have never had this problem with my Plantronics Bluetooth microphone."
_
"Microphone feature works great to take calls."
_
"I selected these because of the fact that they were in-ear headphones and had the ability to adjust volume and track as well as having a microphone."
_
"The other great thing about this is that you can take calls with them and they have a built in mic to speak."
_

Music

Music:
"It was kind of annoying but it was better than having no music whatsoever or having the headphones completely fall out."
_
"Nothing is more disappointing that getting ready to start an exercise routine that you know will probably be miserable and having your music not be there to help get you through it."
_
"Using the on-bud controls for music is slow and annoying."
_
"I really wanted a good pair of noice-cancelling headphones (I have the Motorola S305 that rests over the ear, but it's not good for listening to music or movies in noisy places), but I wanted something that would be easy to carry around with me, so not bulky over-the-ear headsets, and something that would not constantly fall out of my ears."
_
"The only concern with these buds is that the actual music quality is only good, not great."
_
"The controls were OK, it worked great for playing music but it didn't work well for phone commands, when trying to voice dial instead of prompting the voice command it often just auto dial the last number dialed."
_
"I definitely noticed that I am able to listen to music, even at high volume, for longer without any listening fatigue."
_
"Its great vacuuming around the house listening to music without accidentally getting your cord caught and popping your headphones out or something like that."
_
"Sound quality of phone and music is great."
_
"Perfect for using with Pandora or streaming music."
_
"When the phone is in my hand or easily accessible, I can easily skip songs, switch between music services or listen to MLB (Go Braves)."

Noise

Noise:
"This means that when you are exercising, an annoying noise will be heard because the casing is vibrating."
_
"I will say that the audio part of the system is fairly good as far as listening to music, but the microphone for the hands free is not noise canceling and I get a lot of complaints from people I'm talking too on the phone."
_
"I really wanted a good pair of noice-cancelling headphones (I have the Motorola S305 that rests over the ear, but it's not good for listening to music or movies in noisy places), but I wanted something that would be easy to carry around with me, so not bulky over-the-ear headsets, and something that would not constantly fall out of my ears."
_
"I used it for 10mn, I heard a big loud noise and it was just DEAD."
_
"Phone calling was also surprisingly good, but don't expect good performance in noisy or windy environments, or if you're running -- this is not a fancy, multi microphone noise canceling headset."
_
"It cancels out noise well and is awesome for phone calls as well."
_
"Great noise cancellation and volume and the smallest wings buds worked perfectly for me."
_
"They provide good noise isolation but don't dampen outside sound so much that you won't hear horns or sirens."
_
"g) The noise-cancelation is great; it cancels all outside noises so you will not know what is going on around you when you run."
_
"I use them for working out and anytime I am working with power tools (they cancel noise well and don't fall out)."

Pairing

Pairing:
"Lots of pairing problems."

_
"I have other Bluetooth devices connected to those phones computers, none of which had the pairing problem."
_
"Sound quality decent but bass is not as robust as I hoped (1 star deduction) Pairing is easy."
_
"As for the negatives, the light indicating what mode the headphones are in (on off pairing charging) is very small and in a spot that isn't easily noticed until you get used to it."
_
"From the moment I first easily paired my Jaybirds to my Galaxy S6 Edge, I was thoroughly impressed."
_
"Paired easily, and the headphones sized very easily with my ears."

_
"The power button is also annoying."
_
"Here are the notes i took on the product while using it:- The power on process is annoying."
_
"-It was sometimes hard to tell if the headphones were turned on or off, and it was easy to hold the power button too long and put them into pairing mode."
_
"I bought mine at best buy and after 2 month the pause power button got very loose and started ratteling so I called it in and they gave me a new pair the new pair lasted me 3 months because the same thing wit the pause power button happened and then the left headphone stopped working"
_
"I use them for working out and anytime I am working with power tools (they cancel noise well and don't fall out)."
_
"My old ones said power on off, which was a nice option."
_
"I only seem to get about 2.5 - 3 hrs of battery life per charge (although I could be off on that).If you don't spend a significant time away from a power source to charge these, I would highly recommend purchasing."

"The short range is annoying."

"Bluetooth range is not the greatest, especially if your body is interfering with which side your cellphone is kept."
_
"Update: after not giving them a full charge one time, I have been having terrible range issues, even after charging them fully."
_
"The bluetooth range on these is absolutely HORRIBLE!"
_
"The range on the bluetooth is terrible."
_
"They had really good sound, the bluetooth range was good, they had great accessories that allowed them to fit in your ears snugly while working out, etc."
_
"Pretty pathetic range."
_
"The name brands I knew were all either well out of my price range, or they didnt offer a wireless alternative at the time."
_
"Thought they had good range and decent sound quality for gym use and working out walking dog."
_
"Pros: The ear molds are comfortable, and range is decent."

Service

Service:
"Jaybird's customer service is terrible and so is this product."
_
"After 1.5 years of service, they started failing to retain their pairing with my mobile phone and computer."
_
"Contacted customer service again, and unfortunately, since this was already my second set, they could no longer help me but instead suggested I contact the manufacturer directly."
_
"Customer service is incredibly hard to deal with as no one replies to emails and you often times cannot get a hold of anyone when you call."
_
"thing about amazon is, theyre amazing at customer service."
_
"EXCELLENT CUSTOMER SERVICE!"
_
"Jaybird customer service was prompt, friendly, and responsive; I had a replacement set of headphones within about a week of my request."
_
"EXCELLENT customer service! "
_
"I absolutely love these headphones, and even more so the customer service Jaybird offers.."

Size

Size:
"When I got them, I didn't have a charging cord and ordered the wrong size."
_
"I don't find them very comfortable because I have small ear canals and ear buds don't suit me, but I manage."
_
"I do wear the proper size for my ears but they still do cause some discomfort."
_
"My only complaint is that I wish they would provide more than one set of each size as no matter how careful you are, you will lose an earpiece."
_
"The only drawback was the case as mine broke on the first day but I didn't mind as I had a small pouch that I kept it in."
_
"I received mine last week and noticed that one of the pairs of silicone buds was missing, so I couldn't try out each size to ensure the best fit for me."
_
"I live in a pretty decent size two story 3 bedroom condo, and I am able to go up, down, to the kitchen, bathroom, bedroom, laundry without any issues."
_
"It looks like an oversized jewelry box to me, but its small enough to go in my backpack easily in any compartment."
_
"At the beginning of my workout, the largest size earbud is the most comfortable, however, (and Im not sure if everyone experiences this), my ears tend to swell as my body heats up and my heart rate increases, and by the end of my workout my ears are rather sore."
_
"If I size down, theyre a bit too small and sweat causes the buds to easily slip out of my ear."
_
"The product and size looks great.3."

Sound

Sound:
"-Sound quality is very good (I'm not the best judge but see other reviews by people who know), and they are significantly louder than the Jaybirds."
_
"I am coming from ATH M50s and VModa Crossfade M100s so I suppose my expectations were high, but these earbuds don't have the best sound quality."
_
"I gave four stars because the sound quality is not as amazing as I expected."
_
"But these freedoms weren't as good sounding to me, the ear hooks were not as comfortable as I was expecting, I also prefer the Blue Buds due to their smaller size."
_
"First of all: I am an audiophile and my search was for a earbuds with great sound, but even if the sound of this set is Very Good, is not excellent, mostly because the bass frequencies are increased too much (is said in the box manual: with warm bass tuned to eliminate listener fatigue during long workouts, it seems in sports this is important, but not for me, I love a natural sound and this earbuds provides a audio output that isn't natural at all)Second: I tryied all the provided fitting devices and all the sound isolation eartips, but no matter wat fitting device I use, the earphones ends out of my ears when I run (and I bought this set to use mainly during my runs, that last between 6 and 9 hours per week) , and the sound quality decreases dramatically when the earbuds comes off your ear just a little...The bluetooth connection is very good, it pair very fast with my phone, and even if the manufacturer suggest to use in the right arm, I use it in my right pocket or in a running belt, and the connection is good enought with just a few moments of loss of signal."
_
"The sound still works but the durability of a product marketed for athletic use was severely disappointing."
_
"After roughly 8 months of use I am super pleased; the sound quality is clear in the highs and mids with a punchy bass."
_
"Nice quality headphones, good fit, decent quality sounds, stayed in during my runs."
_
"-Sound quality was good (I'm not an audiophile) but the maximum volume was not very loud."
_
"The sound quality is good enough and certainly better than the stock Apple earbuds or any low end earbud."

_
"The sports bands have broken 3 times( so far) in a 5 month period."
_
"Bottom line, great for sport, have room to improve for high quality music listening or getting through long flights."
_
"I've researched through many different sports Bluetooth headphones and I'm pretty sure these are the ones, and, at this price?"
_
"Pros:1) Smart, intelligent design.2) Solid construction.3) Sound quality bests many other sports earbuds that I have used.4) Good battery life (3-5 hours).5) Blue tooth set up and pairing a snap.6) Easy start stop and volume control."
_
"Great sound, the sport volume was week, so not the problems with these."
_
"I loved the Secure Fit Sport silicone ear cushions; they fit very well in my ears."

Voice

Voice:
"Looks like they fixed the bluetooth voice problems with the next model."
_
"The controls were OK, it worked great for playing music but it didn't work well for phone commands, when trying to voice dial instead of prompting the voice command it often just auto dial the last number dialed."
_
"As far as voice - I could hear clearly, but the microphone was terrible!"
_
"**Phone calls voice command work pretty well."
_
"Voice commands work really well, There is a slight delay there too."
_
"I tested my mic on the voice recorder as well and had no trouble there, either."
_
"Another Con is that voice quality is good enough no issues besides the other person I was talking to noticed that I sounded distant cause of the microphone location."
_
"I was in my truck on them and the person on the other end said the quality of my voice coming over was very clear."

Volume

Volume:
"Within just three months, the controller broke, and I could no longer adjust the volume."
_
"worst ear buds ever, low volume even when turned up all the way and wont stay in your ears."
_
"The only negative is the volume is not as loud as I would hope for."
_
"The only problem I have with these is that when I'm running and adjusting volume, they get dislodged easily, but that's more me than a product fault."
_
"I have no volume issues as others have complained about and I have not had to replace mine."
_
"I have ordered several of these bluetooth stereo earphones and, while each has its own advantages disadvantages,the one common problem is lack of sound volume."
_
"-Sound quality was good (I'm not an audiophile) but the maximum volume was not very loud."
_
"I definitely noticed that I am able to listen to music, even at high volume, for longer without any listening fatigue."
_
"Skipping songs and changing the volume is easy for me, but it might be more difficult for people with really big fingers because the buttons are tiny."
_
"Great noise cancellation and volume and the smallest wings buds worked perfectly for me."
_
"These are very comfortable and easy to use, with volume track control buttons, as well as the usual on off answer hook button."

Warranty

Warranty:
"I got it replaced under warranty, but again the new ones failed at around the 3 month mark."
_
"Even though each pair has failed after 1 year of use, Jaybird stands behind their lifetime sweat warranty and has replaced my broken headsets every year."
_
"Then that stopped holding a charge after about 3-4 months and I got busy and ended up sitting on it and never got around to making another attempt on warranty replacement."
_
"The replacements just broke out of warranty and I replaced with the Motorola S11 HD."
_
"I had to get them warrantied twice and it failed again right after warranty expired."
_
"They also come with a lifetime warranty for sweat damage, but this must be registered through Jaybird."
_
"When the last set started failing I went online and they let me know they stopped making the S2 and I was able to get the Sprint under the same lifetime warranty."
_
"Calling their warranty service line is very easy and fast."
_
"I lost the box during my move and was unable to claim on their warranty (not Jaybirds fault)."
_
"I might recommend these if the warranty is honored but given the reviews I don't expect to see these replaced."
_
"I personally recommend buying straight from Jaybird as their warranty is much more fair and they are happy to work with you on any issues you may have."

Weight

Weight:
"I have heard some people complain in their reviews about losing connection via Bluetooth but that has never happened to me and I have run with my phone in my hand at waist level and also put the phone in my pocket on my right side while lifting weights and have yet to encounter any connection problems."
_
"Only complain is that after a long use you can start feel the weight on right ear because that where they put most of the internal components - they could have distribute them evenly."
_
"I even bought an armband despite my strong dislike for armbands since I don't like the weight or feel (I am a short female with a 5ft 2 frame)."
_
"I was looking for headphones that I could wear to the gym because sometimes wires get annoying when moving weights across your body."
_
"Ran a half marathon with them and the clarity of the sound and lightweight of this device is unparalleled."
_
"Light weight, good quality sound and very easy to use."
_
"Light weight, fits well."
_
"I lift weights and run and the headphones come out easily."
_
"Lightweight, decent audio, no messy tangle of cords, rechargeable, impossible to dislodge when walking or running even when damp."

Wireless

Wireless:
"Here's the sad reality of wireless headphones: they are flat-out not as good as wired ones."
_
"However, these earbuds, as far as wireless headphones go, are a (somewhat) decent compromise."
_
"I'm not usually one to write product reviews, so I'll keep this one short and sweet...First off, for everyone you see complaining about the bass response not being good enough, these are wireless earbuds!"
_
"Without a doubt, the most comfortable headphones I've used, wired or wireless."
_
"They arent as good as my corded headphones, but I expect some compromise with wireless."
_
"If you are looking for a reliable wireless ear bud these are the one to get."
_
"(and neither is my gf)so if youre looking for basic wireless comfortable headphones, get these."
_
"I'm not sure what else to say, but for 1 3 of the price of the Beats, the premium sound quality, and the fact that they don't fall out at all when I'm working out simply makes them the best pair of wireless earbuds I've ever owned."
_
"These are awesome for wireless listening - great for workouts & travel so you can leave your phone iPod iPad in your bag or pocket & listen without being tethered by a cord."
_
"The quality of the headphones is great, and the wireless capability is a lifesaver."

iPod

iPod:
"Not a lot of great success with putting the ipod in a pocket at my lower back because parts of my body are occasionally in between the right-side headphone and the ipod."
_
"When I cycle, it doesn't connect well to my ipod if it is in my bike bag under the seat."
_
"Last are seldom connection problems with an iPod Nano during start up, the song plays and then suddenly stops...does not give feedback if the battery is empty or the connection needs to be re-done."
_
"Bought these because the iPod earphones I have fall out when running and biking and i hate when the wires get caught on my arm and rip the earphones out."
_
"Just recently upgraded to most recent iPod 5gen = problem."
_
"These are awesome for wireless listening - great for workouts & travel so you can leave your phone iPod iPad in your bag or pocket & listen without being tethered by a cord."
_
"No problem blue too thing to my iPods."
_
"I was able to leave my Ipod on my bed while I did chores around my room, I could run on my treadmill without accidentally pulling out the cord from my ears, and I could play basketball with them on too."
_
"They may be a good product, but I bought it to use with my IPOD."
_
"TO GET THEM TO WORK BEST: When I'm running, I have to have the iPod on right side of my body where the technology is in the headphone."
