Does what I want

Alex C., Newegg
5 March 2015
  • Summary: They kept wanting to twist on my head when I first got them and it was really pinching one of my ears. I bent the back plastic to make it a little forgiving and that fixed the problem. Maybe I've just got a big head.
  • Pros: I bought these so I could listen to music at my desk and still hear things happening around me. (phone ringing, somebody trying to talk to me behind me, etc).
  • Cons: Once or twice a day they will lose connection to my phone that's only 1 meter away on a stand. They reconnect almost instantly, but it does break my concentration momentarily. The buttons on the right ear are sometimes hard to find. I'd rather have them be individual buttons instead of that whole piece of plastic flexing.

Not bad for the $$

Anonymous, Newegg
8 June 2014
  • Summary: For some people this will take some time getting used to. Because my ears are not flat on the top i find that prolong using becomes uncomfortable (3-4 hours). The headset is NOT cheaply made but they are NOT designed to be doped or crushed. I used them just about any place I go including gym.
  • Pros: Works as it should. Was able to use it with a phone and with a PC + dongle (Win 7). Battery life is 5-6 hours. For the price this is very good. If you are on a budget give this a try.
  • Cons: On low volume i can hear "sheeeee" sound. It's only noticeable in very quiet environment and with music that is not very loud (- one egg for that)

Great deal!

Christian J., Newegg

  • Summary: Overall I'm impressed with the quality of these headphones, they were exactly what I had been looking for. Newegg just sealed the deal with their great prices and free shipping for premier customers. Thanks Newegg!
  • Pros: Great fit on my big noggin! Cheap price thanks to NewEgg, and free two day shipping on top of that. Although I've only had them for a day or two, the sound is great, really loud, great audio quality. No cord! Had been looking for a pair of wireless headphones since the action of me repeatedly pulling my phone from my pocket and putting it back in apparently shorts out any and all headphones (duh). As for the buttons, I myself actually don't mind them. The placement is...
  • Cons: The only problem I've had is a slight connection issue when my phone is in my left pocket. It just cuts in and out and no matter how I reposition my phone it just won't hold out. It's fine in my right pocket though. I just don't understand, the only reason I am removing an egg. It might not even be the headphones, could always be a Bluetooth issue with my phone.

Amazing headphones!

Paul S., Newegg
11 October 2013
  • Summary: I'm on my 3rd set of the S305, simply because I lost the first two. I'm very happy with them and had purchased my first set in 2011 from Newegg for 36, second set in 2012 for 36, and ended up getting a third. Now I'm recommending them to a friend and see Newegg increased the price to 100--what's up with that??
  • Pros: These headphones put out high quality sound, great volume, are very comfortable, and easy to put on and take off. I listen to A LOT of podcasts and audiobooks, and am always seen wearing these headphones. I'm also a competitive runner and like that there are no wires that get in my way or bounce around. It's so easy to put these on and take them off (especially if you have short hair that doesn't cover your ears). The audio quality is very good; doesn't sound cheap or...
  • Cons: I've had the predecessor to this--the HT820--for about 5 years, and LOVED them. I *finally* lost them, and got the S305. I did notice the battery life didn't last as long, but I figure it's because they are slimmer than the HT820. Though the battery still last quite a while. I don't want to use the word difficult, but I'll say it could be easier to know which button is which. Motorola consolidated all the buttons onto one side, whereas the HT820 had separate buttons o...

Motorola S305

3 June 2013
  • Summary: I love this headset and would give it 5 stars if it was not for the fact that I had to purchase another one because the volume control sometimes breaks. It fits great, sounds awesome and the microphone is very sensitive. I have purchased 5 now. but only 2 broke because of the outer volume control issue.

Not working with iPhones anymore

Craig M., Newegg
5 December 2012
  • Pros: Sound great, stay tight on your head. I use them for running and love not having any wires and storing my phone in my pocket.
  • Cons: iOS 6 or 6.0.1 has broken the controls. Mine will still connect to my iPhone and stream music, but the controls no longer work. If you want to pair this with an iPhone, I suggest waiting until the next iOS release and see if Apple fixes the problem.

Great headphones!

Dan P., Newegg
27 November 2012
  • Summary: Haven't had it for very long yet so I can't really speak about durability or battery life. I'm extremely satisfied with it so far though. No longer having wires around me allows me to do so many things more freely than before.
  • Pros: - Very simple to use and pair. - Useful controls. - Good sound. Dunno why some people complain about it being low. Maybe it's the device they're pairing it with. I'm using a Samsung Galaxy S3. - Voice mic is good although a little muffled. - Freedom of having no wires around me! - Lightweight. - Good range. As rated, around 10 meters/35 feet.
  • Cons: - The loop behind my neck keeps hooking into the back of my clothes when I need to look up. Not really a con, but it annoys me. :P - Voice mic isn't the best in the world, but it works fine in case you get a call while listening to music. - Feels slightly flimsy/fragile.

motorola is good

James S., Newegg
20 November 2012
  • Summary: So far no issues. In coming from Motorola S9-HD the volume is kind of low. These do the job but do not sound as good as the S9-hd. Overall I prefer the sound blocking properties of in the ear headphones. This model is good if you need to hear outside sounds.
  • Pros: easy to set up comfortable
  • Cons: volume could be higher would benefit from builtin audio enhancements like BASS BOOST
