So far So Good!,
This review is from: Motorola S11-Flex HD Wireless Stereo Bluetooth Headset - Black/White (Wireless Phone Accessory)
So far this headset is exceptional in the design, functionality and sound quality. It is unfortunate that so many of us spent so much on the SF 600 headset, that was clearly not designed for athletic use where it would be exposed to moisture, only to find that in many cases Motorola did not want to accept responsibility for the product failure. I am hoping this product turns out to be solid with regard to using it during exercise and not failing.
Very good functionality
Features, such as Bass, Treble, Voice control
Dual mic for great phone conversation
Does not drag on your neck during exercise or active use
None so far...I'll update if the moisture issue creeps in on these like the SF 600s
BTW Jaybirds Freedom have suffered from the same moisture problem as the SF 600s plus the strap drags on your neck and becomes annoying during active workouts.

Please update on sweat resistance. I had 3 PAIRS of SF600's that broke from sweat. I do a lot of HIIT workouts and sweat A LOT!. I had to go back to the S10-HD model. Those are a bit more sturdy but are already having sweat issues. I hope these are actually sweat proof. I agree that the JayBirds were not as good as I was hoping. I hope they finally got it right this time.

I thought the jaybirds were guaranteed against sweat, let us know on the sweat issue with these because my s10's aren't doing so well

I, too, am interested in water-proof-ness of these S11s. I run almost daily, and get caught in the rain often. I need a bluetooth headset that can handle being soaked in a shower. If I knew these would hold up to daily runs and getting soaked in the pouring rain every couple weeks, I'd be happy to spend the money.
On that same topic, I used to swim twice a week, but couldn't take the boredom. If I could find a BT headset that I could take swimming I'd be thrilled. I saw the swimmers' MP3 thing, but I don't want to maintain two versions of my music and podcasts.
But my main need is a BT headset that's rain-proof and sweat-proof while running. And if I could wear it in the shower afterwards I could continue my podcasts another 10 - 15 minutes -- undress, shower, shave, get dressed. That would be awesome.
