      Answer

      I can't answer for runs. But I can tell you that I have had these on for a several hours at a time tilling my property, getting jerked all over the place by the tiller when it hits roots. I have also cleared brush with these while jumping in and out of the bed of my truck loading branches. And I have worn them on my utility tractor clearing high grass and small trees. All of these activities ended with very sore muscles, lots of sweat, joints that have ached from the jolting. Not a single time did these come out of my ears.

        Answer

        I use these for phone calls all the time walking around my college campus between classes. If I ever get a complaint from the person I'm talking to, it's that they can hear the people around me too clearly. The mic is fantastic.

          Answer

          The cord does not retract in or out, it is a fixed position. I was worried about that as well. The cord is plenty long. I am 6'5" and have a long neck and it is not a problem for me at all. Absolutely great ear buds.

        • Question

          I bought a pair of these, and my only complaint was that I lost signal when my ipod was in my pocket. I need to have it in my pocket most of the time. Did any of you have this issue, or did I have a lemon pair and should try them again?

            Answer

            That happens to me when the phone is in my back pocket, less frequently (but sometimes) when the phone is in my front pocket. It seems the antenna is not as strong as in some Bluetooth products I have used.

              Answer

              Great question! They do not allow your headset access to my phone's list of contacts for use with the Caller Announce feature and it cannot convey voice commands.

                    Not sure if you've bought them to see if they work for your phone, but I had the same type of phone and it connected like it should without a problem
