Very Fragile

Ryan B., Newegg
23 June 2014
  • Summary: If they were a bit more durable things would be fine. Newegg shouldn't sell these at all. One my fourth purchase I bought the Motorola S10-HD. Though it is not as comfortable, it is definitely more durable, I've had it for more than a year with little to no ware and tare (or at least nothing a...
  • Pros: Decent Sound Quality
  • Cons: Very fragile. I've owned three pairs all of which broke in less than a year. Motorola support is also 100% useless and are no help what so ever.

Not a good deal

Patrick O., Newegg
26 November 2012
  • Summary: Priced to high for the quality.
  • Pros: Comfort, range, battery.
  • Cons: Bad sound quality. Everyone I asked hated the mic quality while talking on the phone. The audio setting tends to get stuck at a low volume db and can't be fixed. BAD

Good ergonomics, poor execution

james d., Newegg
1 August 2012
  • Summary: LG makes a similar brand that works amazingly. I can leave my phone playing and walk all over the house without any compromise in audio quality. Ultimately, I still prefer these because I hate how the LG ones go in your ear. I've also used the Motorola S9 headphones.
  • Pros: When, working properly, the sound is decent. Very comfortable for short periods of time. Pretty stable on your heard when working out.
  • Cons: The band really starts to pinch after wearing it for any extended period of time. Cheap construction means they will probably break easily. Forget about switching between multiple devices. To switch from my Iphone to my laptop I have to turn off Bluetooth on my Iphone, turn of the headset, and th...

Awful Quality

Jeff S., Newegg
12 March 2012
  • Summary: If you're really gentle with your gadgets, you might be ok with this, but I'd still recommend a different one.
  • Pros: I got these because they are cheap bluetooth headphones that work well at the gym. They do work well at the gym. They are reasonably comfortable, sound decent, and have good range.
  • Cons: They don't last long. In the year since I got them, I've RMA'd them twice. The first time, one of the volume buttons stopped working, the second time it was the power button. There is a design flaw with this headset, and I would not buy them again.

They Will Fail Eventually

Nathan P., Newegg
2 February 2012
  • Summary: I have two pair of these, and both did the same thing. After months of using them, they just stopped working and won't turn on. I've charged them, and nothing. My best guess is the sweat from working out gets inside them and shorts it out.
  • Pros: Bluetooth, wireless, sound quality is decent, good battery life
  • Cons: sometimes have issues connecting after pairing w/ device. Power-off unexpectedly when starting up. Apparently not made for extreme fitness users.

Midrange Mediocrity

Anonymous, Newegg
11 January 2012
  • Summary: I buy headphones for the sound. The techy features are cool, but if the sound is not good, then the value is lost in my opinion. You may think I'm being too critical, but if you buy them, you will see for yourself. I'm going to see how much it will cost me to return them. :>(
  • Pros: Features are cool with being able to control your Media player or phone from buttons on the headset.
  • Cons: Sound is mediocre at best. Bass is almost non-existent, Treble is flat with no crisp highs. I have a cheap little pair of corded headphones that blow these away. Pitch of music actually changes if signal is weak or interupted. This is very annoying if you have a musicall ear. Makes you feel like ...

One Week ...

Paul L., Newegg
19 November 2011
  • Summary: The Motorola website has plenty of product information to help you decide to purchase the headphones, but nothing for troubleshooting problems. I bought these here at NewEgg, I should contact them too.
  • Pros: Price, sound quality, bass, comfort, long battery life, great Bluetooth range
  • Cons: After using them nearly every day for a week, this morning the headphones stopped working and I can't get them to restart. I was willing to think I drained the battery, but when I plug them into the charger, the headphone LED immediately blinks red. I'm going to have to call Motorola about this.

DOA x2

Jeffrey K., Newegg
13 December 2010
  • Summary: Curiosity got the best of me. The internal cell voltage was 2.0v, very low for a lithium-ion/polymer cell. The protection circuit on cell was not allowing current to pass. After getting the cell voltage up in normal range the protection circuit works fine and it charges properly.
  • Pros: Work great if they work. Repairable when they don't work.
  • Cons: Arrived twice DOA. Both times the charge LED would blink red indicating a battery issue. It should normally be solid red while charging.

Not too great

Tony S., Newegg
29 November 2010
  • Summary: I bought these to work out with and they would have been excellent if not for the issues stated in the "cons". Motorola customer service was not helpful when I contacted them about the foam coming loose.
  • Pros: Great price, light weight, comfortable.
  • Cons: The foam ear piece padding came loose and can't be fixed, there is not enough tension to press them against your ears, meaning a lot of ambient noise gets in and the bass gets lost. Sometimes refuses to connect. Music often drops out.

Absolute piece of junk

Brandon C., Newegg
22 September 2010
  • Summary: I haven't tried pairing these with my phone since I have an iPhone, but I would hope they work better than they have with my computers. I have tried a Windows 7 x64 computer and an XP 32-bit computer each with a different bluetooth adapter and get the same problems on both.
  • Pros: Lightweight, easy to operate
  • Cons: Half the time they don't pair, when they do pair most of the time the play at full volume and I can't lower it with the built in controls or with the device it is connected to. About 5%-10% of the time they will pair and work perfectly, but I don't have the patience to re-pair the device every ti...
