    Good sound, MAYBE uncomfortable fit

    I had first read the reviews which I now will no longer base any purchasing decision off of ever again. The bonus wireless base for the rechargeable case that the left and right devices set in works quite well. As per the instructions, they seem to do exactly what they say they will do., meaning when the two ear buds are fully charged, the indicator lights will turn blue for a split second, (not noticeable unless you are staring at it), then it simply shuts off to indicate a completely full charge. I noticed that since the right unit is what they call the master unit, it has a dual indicator light, (blue, red flashing light to indicate connectivity/functionality. Each ear but, has only one button on each, which for some might be quite simple to simply pause and resume music if you need to listen to safety instructions or other any important information if you are using these at an employment assignment or a job site. When you pause the music, it is quite effortless to listen to other around you, including any and all emergency notifications that might occur, as the design of the replaceable, different sizes, ear plugs will ALLOW ALL ambient noises to be understood. Even though, this headset has only one button on the device limiting direct one touch functionality, at least for myself, it was fine. I was in an environment to be able to turn it off and listen to important instructions from coworkers and management with great ese and one simple light touch on the right ear piece, which the button was VERY easy to function. No jamming in to your ear. BIG TURN OFF- For comfort in the long run, I highly encourage you to read the following. Each person ear of course will have many different physical aspects, so this is EXTREMELY important to know because this is one of the two major reasons, I chose to refund these within days. As soon as you buy them, please charge them fully. Then, so as not to inadvertently pass the mandatory return policy, there are many different gels to test out. PLEASE. Try each out for at least 1 full day for at least 4 hours constant in your ear as comfortable as possible. Unfortunately, every design ended up hurting my ear over a few hours. I encourage you to KEEP THE RECIEPT, BOX, however, depending on your specific circumstance, always get them the benefit of the doubt, because I not even lose to the know all be all of existence on being a way too critical patience. I sincerely hope this assists you on your purchase.

    Poor Connection

    I'm a Best Buy employee, so I got these for even cheaper than the listed price. That being said, I still returned them. I never had a problem with the sound quality or battery life, I felt that both were great for the price. My biggest complaint about this item is the bluetooth connectivity. I run often, and I am able to pair my headphones to my Vivoactive Smartwatch. While I'd be running, my watch would maintain a great connection, but when I dropped my arms while I'd be resting, the connection would become choppy and cut in and out. The same thing would happen with my phone. If I put my phone in my back pocket, the headphones would start to lose the connection. Great headphones, but maybe hold off on getting this pair unless you're going to have your phone strapped to your bicep everytime you use them.

    Good Sound, user friendly with easy connectivity. Was not an issue for my phone, (iPhone). Earbuds are waterproof and have a convenient charging case. These earbuds do not have a volume or track button. I purchased this item as a gift and exchanged them for a higher quality earbud that was on sale at the time of the return. The volume and track button is not a deal breaker, and the sound on these earbuds is good. The earbuds do work with voice command and can be used as a substitute for changing songs. Overall good product, just decided to upgrade due to sale and competitor quality. Hope this helps.

    I bought these on sale right after Christmas. Wanted some wireless headphones but didn’t want to spend a lot of money. Took me a couple of days to get the fit right but once I did I was pretty happy with them. One sound complaint though, when lying down on a weight bench in the gym they move enough that all the bass goes away. I returned them today because the right one quit working.

    Great for music, but not calls

    The sound quality is great, I prefer ear hooks over in ear but like the ear tips that come with it. They stay in place pretty good. I really wanted to enjoy these more, but I'm giving it a 3 because for phone calls it's only mono audio. The call quality doesn't match the music quality. I travel a lot and for calls on the go this is a deal breaker for me.

    Good features but too big

    These have great features such as long battery life and charging the case via Qi but the units themselves are just to big. They stick out the ears. They were light. In the end, I returned this and purchased a different brand that is much smaller and more inconspicuous.

    Cuts out a lot. This is my second one ( replaced first one since it cuts out) I was hoping the first one I bought had issues. This one cuts out too if my phone is not held in my hand a foot from the ear piece.

    The sound quality on them was excellent the sound quality on phone calls pretty good but they just hurt to wear them after a while. They would be perfect for someone with a really big ears I guess

    The sound quality is wonderful. Working out is a breeze with these in. After a while, they do hurt your ears (fit wise). Considering returning and going with bose, or Apple pods

    These have good sound but didn’t fit well in my ear. I also didn’t like that you couldn’t just listen to one at a time.

    They sound ok but after a couple weeks the set didn’t want to charge. Glad I bought the extended warranty

    I liked everything about these except they would not maintain a charge. I had to return them.
