These have been the best bluetooth headphones I have ever experienced.

MY USE: I bought these for all-around use (walking around campus, indoor climbing, and cycling), and they have performed magnificently. So far, they have been very sweat-resistant and chalk-proof while climbing indoors during the off-season (I don't believe in headphones while outside :)). They hold on tight when road-biking, and they have been very good for walking around campus and answering calls as I listen to music. I also occasionally use them with my iMac to watch movies without disturbing others.

STRUCTURE: First of all, the headphones look fantastic. Really sleek-looking headphones, I get compliments all the time on them, followed by amazement when they find out that they're bluetooth! The fit of the headphones was a little awkward at first - I expected the little buds to go into my ear a little deeper. While they are apparently meant for people with larger heads, I've gotten really comfortable with the way they fit on my head. They rest just outside of my ear canal without being crammed inside. They also rest comfortably on my neck when not in use - I'll often wear them around my neck in class or at work, forgetting they're on!
The buttons on the headphones are fantastic. They really did a great job here. The volume and phone controls are on one side, and the music controls on the other. You can still do things like redial a call, ignore a call, and turn on/off the "enhanced sound" mode using the few buttons. Also, the buttons are rounded off very well, so very easy to feel with your finger.

AUDIO QUALITY: The audio quality is good.

I wanted to listen to music on my HTC Diamond [Sprint] while exercising and around the house, without wires. This unit has good sound, and nice controls - I can activate voice command for hands free dialing, and I can change music tracks without pulling out the phone; Nice.

Unfortunately, the thing is really uncomfortable after a while, especially while wearing my glasses. Note, however, that I have a large head, and the unit is not adjustable [like that would have been difficult to design in].

Additionally, and I knew this before purchasing by reading other reviews, you cannot carry your phone in your front pocket while using these outside. I put the phone in my rear pocket if walking, but I'll have to wear a fanny pack or some other trick to get the transmitter within line-of-sight of the back of the headset. This is another pain-in-the-rear [no pun intended!].

I will say it's really cool to be out for a run when the phone rings and the auto-answer is turned on; the unit picks up and I can talk without having to slow down. I can dial out, as well, with the voice command.

The bluetooth technology is limited, but I think the designers could have made this more friendly.

This unit may just be the best available, for now, but it seems likes it should still be in "beta" to me.

I bought these because my Zaggs wouldn't stay on while running. So, after reading the reviews, I decided to give these a shot. I have an Iphone 3G OS 3.1.2.
Three sizes of earbuds.
The SRS works very well.
Sound is good, almost as good as my VModa Vibes.
The MOTOROKR's stay on while running around the track.
Distance is decent, about 20-25 feet. (for mine)
Useful carrying bag.
Easy connection.
Runs with Pandora, AOL radio, Ipod, and GreatMetal.

Track skip doesn't function with Iphone.
There are six buttons to remember, not a big deal, just takes getting used to.
Battery isn't removable.

Honestly, I would have given them 5 stars if the track skip worked. I am happy with the purchase and would recommend these headphones.

WARNING: Do not purchase these if you plan on using them for working out hard.

If you sweat a lot, then the controls will get all messed up. I.E. the volume up will not work or get stuck and keep going up. Considering they try to pass it off as headphones for "active" people, I think that's a shame. This was the same problem as the original S9s, and you would think they would have corrected it with a new release, but apprently not.

Another thing to consider is if your plan on bench pressing, laying down, or putting your head on the headrest, the compartment in the back will get in the way.

Otherwise, when they do work, they work great. Sound is amazing. Pairs easily with my HTC mogul. Great range. Too bad I'm going to have to return them.

These worked great until I jogged with them. I think the sweat shorted them out. Now my controls do not work and the headphones are stuck on low volume. Contacted motorola and this issue is not covered in the MF warranty. Not worth the money if you wish to use these for running. To tell the truth, I bought these only for running.

There weren't a lot of options out there for wireless headphones in the price range I was looking for anyway, and these got mostly good reviews.

I have to agree, they sound good, I use mine while at the gym. I do a lot of cardio on the treadmill and the elliptical machines. I haven't ran in them yet, but for my 60 min workout, they work pretty good. Another gentleman at the gym had them, and I asked him how he liked his and he said they worked great, he even plays basket ball in them. So I figured I'd give these a shot.

They are light, seem to fit well. They can be a little tight for people with larger heads, and I found that when I look straight up, or straight down, they kinda pull out from the ears, not a whole lot, but not a big deal either. They seem to resist the sweat pretty well.

I use them with my iPod Touch, and pairing was easy. For some reason, when I have music playing right when they connect, the sound goes in and out for about 5 seconds, then, its steady music. The volume controls work, but the pause/forward/back doesn't, but I find it easier to do that with the iPod anyway. I have not tried to answer a call with my iPhone yet, but it paired with the iPhone 3G just fine also.

These headphones do have a lot of bass, and here is what I found regarding audio quality.

They come with 3 sets of rubber 'ear phones'. They are initially equipped with the large. I tried the small, but they go too far in the ear canal and the sound was very muddy (I listen to metal/rock/alternative such as Pantera, Janes Addiction, Depeche Mode, Crystal Method etc...) I went to the mediums, and it pulls the ear piece out enough to give excellent sound.
