Button

Button:
"o BUTTONS ARE VERY HARD TO PRESS."
_
"It was difficult for me to get enough pressure on the controls without using two hands (on to push the button and the other to keep the earpiece in place), which isn't a great thing for a hands-free device."
_
"The buttons are a little hard to push especially if your hands are cold but they may break in a little."
_
"The buttonsMany reviews complained about the buttons being hard to press."
_
"Not to mention the buttons are incredibly hard to press on the headset."
_
"Tha buttons are very hard to push and after charging them overnight I cannot just turn them on and have them pair, I have to have my HTC P4350 phone rediscover them every morning."
_
"It works really well although it would be good if you could control the volume through the ipod instead of the buttons on the headset."
_
"Again, maybe it was low expectations, but I can press all 3 buttons no problem with one hand."
_
"Also the buttons are easy to find as the raised bumps are prominent enough and spaced far enough that you don't mistake one for another."

Charging

Charging:
"take them off the charger they may sit for days and drain leave them on the charger they seem to go dead too."
_
"* Charger: I had the worst time trying to charge the set using the cradle."
_
"But then it began to annoy me and I've used it less and less--the difficulty in getting a good fit, the weird bulky charger that is awkward for travel and that you have to fiddle with to make sure you're even charging the headphones."
_
"A month later, I began having problems with the charging mechanism."
_
"Unfortunately, the AC charger was defective when I received the product."
_
"I could go on about the other negative issues (cheap plastic, proprietary charger, iffy AVRCP) but those are things I could live with as long as the product works."
_
"But then it began to annoy me and I've used it less and less--the difficulty in getting a good fit, the weird bulky charger that is awkward for travel and that you have to fiddle with to make sure you're even charging the headphones."
_
"Happens when turning your head as well.4) Charging station should be somewhere out of the way because the headset will dislodge and not charge with minor taps (its not superiorly secure)5) Knocking the adapter in the device during play sometimes cuts out the broadcast and you need to unplug and replug it in to reestablish play."
_
"They look good and last long on a charge and are inconspicuous to use as headphones and bluetooth handsfree."

Fit

Fit:
"the fit isn't great- they don't stay stuck right in your ear hole."
_
"But then it began to annoy me and I've used it less and less--the difficulty in getting a good fit, the weird bulky charger that is awkward for travel and that you have to fiddle with to make sure you're even charging the headphones."
_
"The JayBird does not fit comfortably at all."
_
"Its great for switching between calls and music and the battery life is much better on the iPhone than the iPods (on the 3G anyway).My complaints are:1) The Wire in back gets caught on your skin if its slightly oily, can be annoying or snag and pull a headphone loose.2) The ear buds don't fit perfectly and there's no real way to adjust them Just right unless you have perfectly flat sides to your head and the perfect drop off behind your ears toward your occipital.3) Need an arm band for perfect use."
_
"However they dont fit well, there is a small projection that is supposed to fit in your ear canal but does not stay in and winds up just being in my ear."
_
"The fit is great and if I didn't hear music I wouldn't know that I am wearing a headset."
_
"These pieces did not fit in my ears, and was very easy for it to fall off."
_
"But then it began to annoy me and I've used it less and less--the difficulty in getting a good fit, the weird bulky charger that is awkward for travel and that you have to fiddle with to make sure you're even charging the headphones."
_
"in a gym it is useable, it fits in my left ear great but my right ear bud I just cant get right."
_
"The shape of the ear pieces is similar to my old Jabra head set but that fit comfortably and the JB is much more awkward feeling."

Music

Music:
"if you listen to classical music in the flac format you will be disappointed."
_
"Dealbreaker 2:Although the wire pulling on my neck was annoying, after about 30 minutes of running the music coming through the ear pieces suddenly stopped."
_
"I have a reasonably high-end stereo setup at home because I like music to sound good, so I was worried that these might sound like the green transistor radio my parents got me when I was 5 years old."
_
"I do not recommend this product, especially to those who want good-sounding music from a durable product."
_
"The sound attained without holding the buds in is marginally good enough for spoken word, but is wholly inadequate for music."
_
"This creates an even greater problem with the Ipod Touch as it will pause your music and shut the ipod down."
_
"A shame really, because I'm very much happy with the music and call quality."
_
"The fit is great and if I didn't hear music I wouldn't know that I am wearing a headset."
_
"The music that came through the ear pieces was loud and clear, but completely mid-range and hardly any bass."
_
"This works great with my iPhone to play music since upgrading to the iPhone 3.0 software."
_
"Crystal clear music, crystal clear stereo sound."

_

_
"Sound quality wasn't perfect but I kind of expected that."
_
"I got these headphones because I was looking for a good quality wireless set to go running with and not have to worry about getting tangled in wires."
_
"concept = greatcomfort = greatsound quality = decentbluetooth reception works great indoors but poorly out side unless above waste areabattery life is main problem with only having about 3 hours"

_
"Sound is about what I expected from a set of wireless headphones - not great, but not bad."
_
"As for music side of things I would rate it at 3 out of 5.Personally I wish for more bass ( I play a lot of electronic music but I don't know what the standard is for stereo wireless streaming so it's hard to know how good it could get?"
_
"Great sound quility for this wireless headphone."

_
"It works well with Iphone(Phone call & Songs) & other MP3 players."
_
"Once I turned on my iPhone the sound was deep, loud, and crystal clear!"

iPod

iPod:
"I picked up these Jaybird headphones and I have these negative comments:1) Reception is horrible you have to have your ipod on the right side of your body in your lower right pocket at least or else reception cuts in and out2) Track fwd and Track back does not work."
_
"Maybe if you are lucky it will3) Putting on takes some getting use to but in the summer the cable on the back sticks to your neck and then when you turn your head you get pulling of the earpieces.4) The in-ear buds don't work too well, I'm not sure who designed these but these are horrible.5) Turning off the headphones is ok, but when you turn off your ipod, the transmitter still flashes blue and then drains your IPOD battery."
_
"The only problem that I had was figuring out how to pair it with my IPOD."
_
"The other downside of course it does suck the life from your iPod when using it."
_
"Its great for switching between calls and music and the battery life is much better on the iPhone than the iPods (on the 3G anyway).My complaints are:1) The Wire in back gets caught on your skin if its slightly oily, can be annoying or snag and pull a headphone loose.2) The ear buds don't fit perfectly and there's no real way to adjust them Just right unless you have perfectly flat sides to your head and the perfect drop off behind your ears toward your occipital.3) Need an arm band for perfect use."

_
"I use my IPOD when riding and this headset gives me great sound, with no cords."
_
"Sound is loud and clear, little bothersome you have to adjust the volume on the headsets and not the ipod but otherwise they work great."
_
"You need to still have your phone IPOD pretty close to the headphones when you run for some reason."
