Cons: Some phone calls were lost changing from device to speaker on phone.

1 out of 5 eggsJunk

Pros: Good when using the phone.

Cons: Very short range, when you put them in your pocket they will cut in and out. Power button problems, and now they just don't turn on at all.

Other Thoughts: I should have listen to other reviews.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing

Pros: This equipment is really better then I expected for the price. I was worried about the sweat being an issue. I assume users who have experienced hardware failure are probably profuse sweaters and have longer hair which covers the device while in use. My short hair made it easy to wipe the sweat away with a towel while using them, thus avoiding the dreaded sweat failure. As always newegg delivers promptly and without issue. The range in my gym on these was to my surprise over 15ft ith steady playback. Now I just set my phone down on an elevated platform in the center of my gym and workout as I please. When the music stops I look to where I put them and get ready for some cardio / mma working out.

Cons: Audio quality is great not superb but when you have 300 dollar headphones to cpmare these with what do you think the outcome will be.

Sometime they feel awkward if you have a collar shirt or windbreaker on. I found myself tilting my head forward unnaturally to compensate but in all honesty these are sturdy and fit great. This problem is merely one that I created and allowed.

Other Thoughts: If you like the fit of in the ear and hate those loop behind in ears you find at Target and other cheap imitation styles. Have no fears. This pair fits like in the ear with the security of behind the ear. Perfect design.

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic Sound

Pros: I have used this product between several computers and several cell phones. I have only had ONE minor problem with this, i had to "reset " the headset once, which wasn't that big of a deal since the instructions are in the manual. I sync and re sync this guy all the time between my computer and G1, i honestly cant tell you how good this product been for me! All the separate controls work GREAT!

Cons: I just wish the skip to next song and volume controls were actual separate controls and not having to hold volume up to change the song.

Other Thoughts: This thing has pretty good sound, the bass reproduction at times can be a bit too much, but once you figure out how to configure your sound devices, it actually gives you much better control!

Pros: Sounded great for about 20 minutes

Cons: Shut off after 20 minutes and won't come back on again. Dead.

2 out of 5 eggsGiving it another chance

Pros: Pairs flawlessly and easily with the Pre All controls work great and are pretty intuitive. Fits well and sound is pretty good. Very comfortable. Callers said I sounded okay......at least on the one phone call I received while owning them. Haven't tried them outside yet.

Cons: I used this device about two days totaling approximately 2 hours and then they died. Maybe they're not designed for athletic use. First time I used them with music only and were fine. Second time I was on the spinning bike watching a movie on the Pre. Controls wouldn't work after about 1/2 hour or so. Shortly after that, they died. Sent them back in for replacement, as I'm happy to give them another chance. I think they could be great.......if they work.

5 out of 5 eggsBackBeast

Pros: Small, cool looking, great sound, great calls, great battery life

Cons: Dont really like the combination of the volume and the track skip button. It just seems lazy to combine them when you can just put them on both sides. You have to hold the button to skip a track, and if i accidentially come across my backstreet boys collection, i will be doing alot of skipping, which will take longer cause i am holding the button. This hasnt bothered me yet, but what if i need to fight vampires or something? Not very safe, and thats whats important, right?

Other Thoughts: I have been through a few bt headphones over the years, i first used the S9, and, though they looked cool, I returned those after minutes. They were just not functional, pathetic. Then i got the Moto HT80's And they still are pretty awesome. They have great battery life and the music is alright even if the volume isnt particularly loud. But they were big, clunky and hurt your ears after about 20 mins of wearing. But these backbeasts are like the evolutionary mating of the other two head sets. Like Blade, all of the strengths, none of the weaknesses. They are small/comfortable, loud and quality mic. And there is no suffer in battery. I looked at alot of these things to this day, wonder why these are not touted and the end all in bluetooth headphonery
