Pros: They are the best sounding earbuds I have owned. They are not noise cancelling but when listening to music or watching movies you can hear very little ambient noise.
Cons: The right earbud failed after only a few uses. They were working great and plugged them in last night and there is now a loud crackling in the right side earbud at any volume level other than low. I have requested an RMA and replacement from Newegg.
Chances are also high that you will have to use the adapter cable (Supplied) for them to work with your smart phone. I have a Nokia 920 and an iPad Mini and both require the adapter for the headset remote to function.
When using as a phone headset it almost seems to amplify nearby voices and audio. Something no other headset has done.
Other Thoughts: It comes in a really nice box and packaging. My recommendation is to skip the nice packaging and make a product that lasts longer than a week.
These are not worth the $100 + retail. I only purchased them because the sale price is what you pay for ok earbuds in other brands.
If the RMA comes through and the replacements last longer than a week I may improve my rating. If they had not died I would say.

This review is from: Contour GPS HD Helmet Video Camera
Pros: Bullet Cam style Camera. Selectable recording settings.
Cons: Limited Bluetooth functions. Limited GPS Options. Mine never recorded any GPS Settings. The mounting options seemed like they would be better than others but turned out to be difficult to remove. Nothing about this camera worked for me out of the box. The StoryTeller software is annoying and required if you want to see any GPS data. You also cannot see Speed or Altitude unless you upload the video to their site. No thanks.
Other Thoughts: Before you purchase the ContourHD or the ContourGPS please review their options in full. For the money there are much better cameras.READ FULL REVIEW
