The only pro I have is these are really light so they are nice to have on your head.
The negatives are
1) Proprietary charging cable is a huge pain (S10 uses micro usb)
2) Sound quality is terrible and ambient noise makes it so your music becomes indiscernible from traffic.
3) Controls are hard to manipulate while running, I needed both hands, one to hold the earpiece steady and the other to push the button.
4) Bluetooth connectivity is pitiful. There's a diagram in the box saying to have your phone on the same side as the antenna and they weren't kidding. I normally run with my phone strapped to my left arm and that's enough to cause the device to cut out as you swing your arm back and forth. It does work fine if you strap your phone to your right arm, but this is uncomfortable for me and really is unacceptable. I've never seen a device with such horrible range that my body causes it to cut out.
I suppose if you're really petite and the S10 HDs are too big are you're searching for something at this price point, they might not be a bad alternative. I really can't recommend them for any other reason though.
My primary need was no cord that bounces around while I'm running! I looked at headphones ranging from $30-$250. I found I was going to have to sacrifice some volume capability for Bluetooth. My corded $7 Gummi headphones can get really loud! The cord is also a nuisance and I realized I didn't need that amount of volume. I also came to the conclusion that the over the ear models like Bose or Beats would be hard to wear with a hat or headband outside. I didn't come across any reviews that recommended them for running. The sound of those are great, and if I wanted good quality headphones to wear around the house or office, those are probably the best on the market.
After reading several reviews on headphones for runners and consumer report reviews I decided to try out the Plantronics Back Beat GO 2. I bought these at a local retail store because I wanted to be able to easily and quickly return them if needed. Sure enough I did return them, and very quickly (the same night). These headphones were supposed to be very comparable to the Jaybird Bluebuds which people gave raving reviews, but which also run $170. The Plantronics were $80. It didn't take me long to realize that the earbuds that go into your ear were not going to work for me. They were very uncomfortable. And for $80 I was not impressed with the volume capability. I don't pump up the volume when running outside but I want them to get loud enough to drown out the sound of the treadmill and others around me at the gym. The earbuds are connected by a lightweight wire and I didn't feel like they'd stay in place unless I really pushed them into my ear, which I wouldn't be able to tolerate for very long.
Took back the Plantronics and decided to try the Motorola S11. These were actually very nice. They sounded good, they stayed in place, and they didn't hurt my ears. I found it a little difficult to put a headband over them to keep my ears warm outside, and sunglasses were a little uncomfortable with them too. The earbuds are connected with a rigid band that goes around the back of your head. I had decided I was going to keep these, even though the price was more than I cared to spend ($130). I felt they would be a good quality headphone that would last. I wore these at least 3 times for running outside and on the treadmill. I could crank the volume up to the max and not blow out my ears, but I was OK with it.
Just as I decided to keep the Motorola headphones I saw a review on Youtube someone posted for these Avantree Jogger Sports. I looked them up on Amazon and read favorable reviews. One hesitation I had was that the quality may not be as good since the price was so much lower, but I was willing to try them out considering how much less they cost. I also had read someone's review that mentioned the company will give you $2 back if you give them a good review and send it to them. If these headphones sucked $2 wouldn't be enough for me to lie and say they were great. I hoped the same was true with everyone else's reviews.
Bottom line - they're great!
1. They're lightweight
2. They're comfortable in my ears (similar to by Gummi headphones)
3. They sound good
4. They stay in place
5. It's easy to wear a hat/headband over them and/or sunglasses for outside.
6. They're so much less expensive!
I don't know how long the battery actually lasts before you have to charge them, but this wasn't a priority for me. The longest I'd have them on is 2 hours and I'd have plenty of time to recharge before needing them again. If you want long lasting (7 hours) and quick charging headphones the Motorola are supposed to last 8 hours and fully recharge in 15 minutes.
I also haven't had a problem losing a connection. I'm able to put my iphone on the treadmill console and run with continuous music play. When outside I've put my phone in a zip up shirt pocket or my sportsband arm carrier and both work fine. Bluerange was not a concern for me.
I don't know how long these will actually last but for $30 I'm very happy and will be satisfied if they hold up for a year.
Avantree's support is great. They responded quickly and sent a replacement. I'm putting the replacement through the paces, and it's working well so far. Plus 1 star for the support. The sound is still thin compared to other cheaper bluetooth headsets, but if it can resist the water and last, then it's worth it.
If anyone finds a truly water/sweat proof bluetooth headphone that can rival the more cost-effective kinovo BTH-220, please let me know. These have failed and were more expensive.
I had the Avantree Jogger for 1 month while training for a marathon, then they stopped powering on. The red light would come on while charging, but no matter how long I charge them the unit does not power on. The main reason for purchasing was to get something more sweat-proof for 2+ hour runs. Sweat eventually killed 2 sets of kinovo bluetooth headphones after years of usage. I thought maybe the Avantree Jogger Sport would have better water-resistance, but after 1 month, they didn't even come close.
When they worked, they served their purpose- battery life was good, sound quality was okay (kinovo headphones sound better), the in-ear fit was secure, but not very comfortable, especially when pressing the volume/song controls. The controls are logically placed and work well when paired with a Galaxy S3. The call quality was poor, but I didn't intend to use them for calls.
I contacted Avantree Support, so we'll see if replacement is an option. Regardless, I don't have much faith that this model is durable enough for long-distance sweaty runs.

In light of the other comments and the fact that I'd only lost some comfort, volume, and quality, I wrote the problem off as knowing what I was getting into. After all, they're still usable. Recently I noticed a new, updated model of the headphones had been released and out of interest in an improved version decided to test their support: the manufacturer, via their own website. The full text of the exchange is included.
"Would it be possible, please, for you to send some replacement earbuds for the Avantalk Jogger? Both sets have fallen off and are lost. I understand this isa common problem for the product." - Myself
"Thanks for contacting us. For simple and easy, could you please arrange $5 to the paypal email@example.com? And please let me know your full name, dispatch address and tele. no.. We will send three pairs for you soon." - Avantree (Previously Avantalk)
I did not take up their offer, nor negotiate further.
Firstly, I find it hard to believe that a fractional amount of silicone is worth five - presumably U.S. - dollars, even including postage.
Secondly, they're actually sold on Amazon UK at *£4.99* for *two* pairs, which is dreadful: Avantalk 2 pairs of Soft silicone earbuds for Avantalk Bluetooth headset Jogger . The headphones come with two pairs, so that's a straight replacement. And as the price currently stands, that's more than a quarter what the entire product costs. Quite a penalty if you don't think to try customer support first... or even if you do.
Thirdly, considering the number of people who had this problem, and the fact I encountered it as well even when paying attention, I consider it a design flaw and am not impressed that they're charging to patch it up, apparently making a little on the side as they do.
Finally, as far as I can tell from the picture with the Amazon listing, the replacement buds share the same design, which means even if you do pay to have another set they'll simply come off again.
I won't cover the product itself, others have done so well enough, and for the most part I thought they were excellent. At the time they were relatively unique and about half the price of anything comparable, a real bargain and worked more or less flawlessly, more so than other reviews seem to describe.
Ultimately though, nowadays, they're not so unique or as much of a bargain, I'm too annoyed and wary to buy from the company again and the silicone buds seem to have returned with the Pro. Maybe they've changed the design, but don't say you weren't warned... even if you think you can be careful enough.
These I can report are SPOT ON. They are extremely light, lasts over 6+ hours (I charge once a week),once paired syncs with 1 touch and its easy to control music when on.
Takes a little getting used to the ear buds which kind of plug into your ear, but it's not bad, just different. Although the ear buds (2nd pair included with purchase)come off way too easily (not when in use) when stored in the supplied cloth bag, so I've resorted to finding a hard shell case from another pair of headphones to store them in.
- extremely light (don't even realise they are there)
- VERY steady when running, exercising etc. (sit comfortably when in place)
- great control of your music/volume/track change
- straight forward switching for taking voice calls in the middle of music playing
- good battery life
- great sweat/water resistance
- the silicone earpieces slip off too easily when not in use and are a little tacky. (I'm tempted to glue mine in place)
- no battery life indicator (so you have to guess went to charge)
- you press into your ear to change songs/adjust volume which isn't a good design element
Update after 3 months use:
I waited 2 months before posting my initial review, so thought all was good. Unfortunately almost a week after my initial review the sound on these buds starting cutting out intermittently. Amazon replaced them for me with a brand new pair, but right out of the box I'm having the same problem. They're OK on the treadmill when my phone is completely static, but when I'm walking around the gym the music keeps cutting out. Really disappointed since I had high hopes. I wouldn't purchase again.
I liked the idea that you did not have to have anything hanging off your ear, because I have always found this uncomfortable. Therefore, having the bud was a good idea and it fit well. The wiring was not 'memory' and so could not be made to hang on my ear like in the user diagram - this was not a problem for me.
The product looked fine. No better or worse than any of the mass produced electronics you can purchase today.
The instructions were clear and the set-up simple. The sound quality was adequate - l just needed company on my workouts in the local park (jogging/power walking).
The first pair kept cutting out when I moved about, but if I was sitting down they were fine. I discovered that the wiring was loose, so they went back. The next two pairs had a similar problem, except the wiring appeared fine. The problem seems to be something to do with the Bluetooth operation. It did not like movement of any sort, which defeats the purpose given its name; 'Jogger'.
I was fine sitting on a train or the underground travelling at train speeds with lots of people on other Bluetooth around me. I just could not walk or jog, because that was when the constant break in the music happened, every 1-2 seconds.
I have gone back to my old corded fontopia until I can find a new pair that works.
The description is spot on, they are lightweight, fold easily away and have a good battery lifespan (they say about 8 hours and I have to admit I've been charging them every few trips to the gym so only tested them for about 4-5 hours).
The sound is not as good as the wired ones they replaced, but then these were in ear ones with extra bass boost, the Avantronics definitely sound better than the majority of in ear headsets and definately better than the iPhone OEM. They are perfect for the gym.
A few reviewers mention the fit to the ear & the ear buds provided. I have had no problem with these, but did spend the majority of the first gym session getting them adjusted to be just right. Since then I don't have to touch them at all.
Range- this is a weird one- if I have my phone in my trouser pocket on the opposite side to the receiver (right earpiece) then the sound will cut out- but it warns you of this in the instructions. When I put my phone down to do free-weights and is more or less line of sight, I can wander 10-20+ feet without signal loss. This is really good as I'm always worried about dropping a dumbbell on my phone!
So far if I lost these I would definately buy a replacement set.
The sound quality isn't going to blow you away, but it certainly does enough to warrant the tiny asking price. They were a doddle to pair with my iPhone 4S. They allow you to control volume track etc from the headphones themselves and answer phone calls. The battary lasts for ages and they don't take long to charge.
The range of them is pretty good too. I manage to walk a good 8-10 meters away from my phone before I start loosing connectivity. I have no issues with the signal fading in and out when jogging with them either.
They are super light too, you'll hardly notice them.
4/5 from me. They'd get 5* id the sound wasn't quite so flat/tinny.
Highly recommended though.
