Great value

Great for use at the gym and jogging. Overall sound quality is great! Simple to use! Very affordable!

Great sound, but broke quickly.

For the first 102 days I was thoroughly satisfied: the sound was good and they stayed in place during running. Unfortunately, one earbud stopped working on the 103rd day... I had to calculate the days (from the purchase date), because the warranty is only 90 days. I tried to fix it myself, but now I'm left having to buy a new set of earbuds...

Great buds

Never had wireless earbuds before. Thought I would check them out because of the low price. I have used them everyday for a year and a half. Biking in the summer, gym in the winter. A charge will last 5 to7 days, (depending on length of workout). I will never go back to wired earbuds again. I am only back on this page to get a set for my brother. Could they fit a little better? Probably. Do they sound as good as Bose? Probably not. If you want to try wireless buds that sound great and last, and don't want to spend a ton, buy these now.

just OK

Pros: they fit nicely and stay in place (& supply extra ear inserts). excellent bass response. Cons: Bass response may be too good. Controls are limited and awkwardly placed. Bluetooth really not great (and was the reason I purchase them). Unless my player is in my breast pocket, 8 inches for the ear piece, reception is spotty at best.

Not Worth It

I purchased these for working out. I spent more time putting these things back in my ears than I did lifting. Complete fail. These are fine if you're going to be sitting around doing nothing, but if you're planning on doing anything strenuous, forget about it. Buy something else.

Great Sound for the Price

Never having owned that many good quality Blue Ear buds before, this was my first adventure. Although I have owned some much cheaper brands before and were just that cheaper and crapper. These were a real step up. More comfortable and a much improved sound. The buttons are a little bit more difficult to operate, but once used to them they work well. Holds a good charge and stays in the ear well when Running. Very loud , with lots of bass. I suggest a good equalizer app if your using a smartphone or computer. Tweak the bass and mid range just a bit. There may be better ones out there at a higher price tag, but for the money these can't be beat.

Great value

These fit in my ears quite well, the sound quality is good. Overall it's a very decent product, especially for what you are paying. I bought these specifically for working out. I found with other headphones, the wire would get in the way, and when running other ear buds would not stay secure in my ear. These headphones remain securely in my ears, whether I am running at the gym or riding the subway. My only real complaint is that I found the charge didn't last very long.

Almost perfect... definitely a great deal!

Here's the thing, a pair of nice headphones (wireless no less) costs few hundreds these days and if you are looking for superb sound quality comparable to bose you are searching in the wrong price range. I am reviewing this based on the price range and it is everything i hope for in a light weight wireless headphones that i can work out with. Sound qualtiy - better than expected, honestly quite impressed considering the fit isn't perfect Ease of use - very easy to connect to and set up, the device is small so yes if you have big fingers you may find it hard to adjust volumes but the fact that you can adjust volumes it is already providing more than i expected for something this price! Comfort - the ONLY criticism is the fit. While i understand ear buds are hardly one size fit all, i just wish that the part where they fit into the ear can turn (which isn't a hard/ expensive mechanism to make) so it gives a bit more flexibility to accommodate different shaped ears. Final verdict, while the earphones are not completely snug, the sound quality is still great, i think it is a problem if you do intense exercise though or if you are on the plane people next to you may be able to hear what you're listening to. That's the reason why i give it 4/5 star.

Too much bass.

This is overall an amazing product. They hold very well in the ears and are so light that I sometimes forget I am wearing them at all! The battery life is also very good. Much better than I expected. The earbuds isolate the ears agains outside noise fairly well too. The only issue I have with these earphones is that they output a LOT of bass. I was very disappointed by the sound quality just because of that. Thankfully, I use them mostly to listen to music with my smartphone and the app I use has an equalizer that lets me turn the bass down and adjust the sound. Once adjusted, they work really well and the sound is very good even at higher volumes. Sacool advertises these earphones on their website as "Super bass". But, they are not advertised as such on the Bestbuy website. This should absolutely be specified.

I did not like the design.

Will not stay in the ear. Very annoying when doing any kind of activity and having to constantly adjust the headset. But for the price I guess you get what you pay for.

Awesome product for an awesome price

I was looking for a relatively cheap wireless headset that isn't too bulky as i hate those over the head ones, then i found this and it has worked great ever since. Had this for about a month now and i'm loving the sound quality......

The headphone outperforms at this price

For a wireless headphone I think 2 things are important to me: bluetooth connectivity and not loose when sporting. I think this headphone does a good job on both, especially when I am running I have no problem on the bluetooch connection. I am not a professional music lover so I can tell the big difference on audio quality, However, giving the price you are paying, I think this headphone already outperforms.

Quality Control is bad.

I ordered this unit and my initial impression was quite good. I noticed very quickly that the left side bud had not been assembled properly since every time I touched it. I heard a twang, the sound where to parts are held together by adhesive pushed together and then quickly would separate making a twang sound. Very annoying, but after a couple of work outs I thought I would give it another try since the unit preformed quite well. The second set, had the same problem on the right side. This set will be returned as well.

Does not fit well for me

Bought these to replace my old conked out Motorola S-10. The 3 sets of earbuds do not fit tightly on my ears and would fall very easily. Range and duration is about the same as my old Motorola. The sound quality seems to be less full than the old Motorola. The response time from Best Buy is very fast and I'm very happy with its speedy delivery.

dissapointed in range and duration

I bought these to replace an old pair of motorola headphones that i wore out.I wear these at work and cannot go more than 10ft from my device without losing signal. range is crap.also cannot make it 3/4 of a day before they are totally dead. i would return but they are dirty from my line of work. I will be buying something different.

Just bought for the gym - works awesome!

So I just bought these headphones and had my first round at the gym with them. 30 minutes on the treadmill at a good jog followed by some weightlifting and these things performed great! Once I got them in my ears and feeling comfortable, they stayed in with no problems. They did seem to rotate in my ears a little bit over the course of my workout, but never fell out and a quick adjustment had them sitting and sounding right again. The controls are a little clunky and awkward to access, but it's not the end of the world. I did get a couple calls while I was working out and the phone part worked great too. My callers were able to here me and said there was no static. A little heavy on the background noise and of course my heavy breathing on the treadmill probably didn't help, but certainly better than I was expecting considering the mic is way back at your ear. The only caution I would give you is not to get too hung up on making them fit the way they look in the pictures. Everyone's ears are different. Go with what sounds good and fits comfortably. For me, they were pointing up at about 60° instead of sitting horizontally. All in all, I would definitely recommend this. No more cables to snag while I'm jogging or to bind against my chest in the preacher curl pad. Fantastic!

very good product

It's very good as I don't have be dealing with the cables anymore. Great sound. It made a great combo when I added a pebble smart watch. Now I can keep my phone in my pocket while at the gym and hikes.

great affordable bluetooth headset for running

I wanted to get rid of tangled cords while running but didn't want to spend a fortune and wanted something light and unnoticeable. This product is all of that! It synced perfectly to my iphone 5S in my waistpack and they earbuds fit nicely in my ear without interfering with my sunglasses or headband. They were lightweight and although I had a little windnoise when running into a headwind, were otherwise quiet. I'm not too concerned about overall sound quality when running (and don't want noise canceling for safety reasons) so these worked perfectly for me and at the price they are hard to beat!

Great value - solid performers

I have been looking for a decent pair of Bluetooth headphones for a while. I like listening to media while working and I am often moving around. Corded headphones get caught and often launch my iPod or phone into the wild blue yonder. Wireless for me is important. I`ve been through a few other models (there is not a great variety of Bluetooth headphones out there). Avantree has the best compromise of durability, fit and sound of the other three I have tried. If you are an audiophile don`t expect the best sound quality. It`s good but not fantastic. A key thing for me was durability since these are with me on worksites and get tossed around a lot. You can use these for listening to media or with your phone. I have used these to answer calls and have conversations. They don`t stack up against a higher end BT headset but for the price they do an acceptable job. All in all I would not only buy them again but would recommend them to others.

Happy with the product

I liked everything about this product suits my need, but I am yet to get comfy with the keeping them tug into my ears, keeps slipping if I move a lot. But, my daily activities when I use these do not involve lot of movement, so I am fine with it. Would have been better if it fitted the ear lobes better.

Great price ,decent buds

This is my fourth pair of wireless I use them mainly for watching tv programs on my tablets, by far the best buds for the price . No sound cancelation (but I did not get that on my first pair that cost 3 times as much). Overall a good quality sound. Charging is a little long 2 hours or more but they last close to 6 hours . I find them comfortable although I wish the wiring was a little bit longer. I would highly recommend this product.

Decent Alternative

As a disclaimer I cannot comment on wireless ear buds in general, these are my first pair. I am also by no means someone who pays top dollar for headphones so for audio quality sake I cannot compare. Out of the box the headphones pair up to either my Mac or iPhone easily. Audio is concise and clear for up to 10 meters. I get audio cut-outs very little due to range. I have used them at work, home, train and at the gym. They stay well in your ears while working out. I have very odd ear lobes where nothing but buds fit properly, I find these to be a good fit for me. For some cons: They are a tad bit heavy feeling when in your ears, and a bit bulkier then some of the competition. But when they are in snug they don't go anywhere. Snug fit but don't expect them to cancel out noise. While they will muffle external noises they won't 'cancel' them out. Battery life is decent, the advertised 4 hours is approximately correct. Charging however I feel takes hours to get to full charge. A way to improve on the product would be to have some sort of indicator or bluetooth feedback for current battery level.

Mr

Bluetooth review I bought this set of Bluetooth earbuds for use when cycling, when I really don't want cords around to get tangled, and I don't want any item on my body, my phone I keep in pouch on bike. I was expecting only a basic performance from unit, and nothing like what I would expect from my Bose buds or Sol headphones. And I was/ am pleasantly surprised. They offer very decent sound. I have a big head (in more than one way according to some) and they fit very snug but they do fit, and they stay in no sliding out, no discomfort. Even during 3 hour rides it has felt good. Battery life is good, the listed 5 hours is probably accurate , it's a little hard to tell as I may use it an hour one day , a half the next , two hours one day. But it does give you a beeping when it gets low. Only issue I have is my fat fingers can have a time using the multi use button. But as I use it more getting more used to the touch I need. Very much recommend this. For the price it's a no brainer.
