It is true that sometimes I have to click a button more than once or twice to transmit a signal to the device but I figure that it's a bluetooth issue, not a device issue. I am thrilled to have a working bluetooth remote.
Anyone riding a bike will tell you that - music is good on the long lonely hauls - But it's REALLY BAD in Traffic Situations.. So Even though I needed this remote to perform only Two Tasks.. It was Very Important that the remote did Reliably do those tasks.
I found that those reviewers displeased with this unit seemed to run into a "weak battery upon initial receipt" type situation - so - naturally - when the remote control showed up, I immediately replaced the battery, and, as this unit would be mounted to my Motorcycle's Handlebars - to waterproof the battery compartment - I smoothed a piece of black electrical tape over the removable battery panel before re-inserting the unit back into it's rubber housing.
The two open slots on the remote's north and south side of the rubber-housing easily accommodate a couple of nylon cable ties, and even though these rubber slots do "give" when cinching down those ties to your handlebar - you can get a firm anchoring of this unit using self adhesive craft foam and double sided carpet tape (to build up - form - and reduce slip) to "fit" the unit to the contours of your handlebar..
Saying as much - this remote has been mounted semi-permanently - to my bike's handlebars this way - located by my light control switch - in a semi-rigid fashion - and it has been using the same battery for quite a few months now..
Now... Does it work?
Yes it does.. For-Me, Every Time...
But it can be "clunky" in it's operation if you are not used to it.
"Clunky" You Say??
Yes.. "Clunky".. In both my Classic iPod and iPod Touch devices, These are the issues I have found with it..
Inserting the remote's iPod receiver into the base of my iPod - INVARIABLY the music mutes out.. It doesn't seem to matter if you plug the receiver in when the unit is powered-on, or before you boot it up.. But the fix for this issue is an easy one... I unplug the headphones - then plug them back in.. The music then comes through clearly.. So if the music ain't flowing after you plug the receiver into your iPod - just unplug your headphone jack, and reinsert it - this should fix that.
I tend to put my ear-buds in (enjoying the sound quality and Very Low profile Klipsch IMAGE S4's) put my helmet on, walk out to my bike then turn off the music using the remote - to ensure that the system is safely working reliably.
Another issue is that The Longer that the music is turned off - the longer it seems to take to come back on after pressing your remote's play/resume button - this could be due to the iPod's "sleep mode" or whatever, but I have learned to - every now and then - turn the music on for a second or two - just to keep reaction time between remote and iPod minimal..
Using winter gloves - Yes, it can be more difficult to use the buttons - but honestly - this is not a huge deal, and after a waiting a few seconds for your iPod to respond - a single-deliberate-repetitive action of trying to use the remote's-buttons usually gets the message across to the ipod..
The reaction time between remote and iPod isn't instantaneous even at the best of time - there is always a very slight pause between pressing the button and iPod response which again seems to increase over longer periods of keeping the music off - but again - It's something you will get used to..
To Me, Now, NONE of these things Really are a Big Deal.. But, it may be one of those things that - until you get used to it - you could be frowning while you initially learn the "quirkiness" of using this unit, but.. Like me - You'll get over it..
Because the SAFETY of being able to Remotely control your music on a Motorbike - that works in both Torrential Monsoon Rain at 75mph and Shine, a Remote which can be easily fixed to your handlebars. The safety of being able to switch off your music as you approach town or intersections - That Safety is Worth the MINOR Learning curve in using this product.
If this unit dies tomorrow - I would by another one - wouldn't bother to shop for something different. This - after you get past the small issues - Works .. EVERY TIME.. And when it comes to My Own Safety.. Why Would I Risk Anything that Doesn't?
Nearly everything I read in those comments happened to me. Volume goes to 100% just by touching the "volume up" button. Touch "volume down" and the volume continues to 0 then turns off the ipod. Hit "skip forward" and the ipod goes into fast forward. Nearly every function needs to be pushed 2 or 3 times in order for it to work. Also, none of these "malfunctions" are consistent. They happen intermittently. Very frustrating, and distracting, when you are riding in traffic. Keep in mind I hook my ipod up to my radio. I can only imagine how dangerous it would be if I used earbuds under my helmet.
I was getting ready to contact Monster to see if maybe I just got a bad unit when, 3 weeks ago, the remote blew off my handlebars. Part due to high winds and high speed. I didn't even feel inclined to turn around and get it. I thought "good riddance". For $15 it wasn't worth the hassle.
I have since gone to buyijet.com and bought a new Ijet remote for my touch. The downside: it's a smaller remote with smaller buttons. Upside: everything works the way it's suppose to. Push a button once and it does what you want it to. Not to mention the receiver has a "pass through" so you can charge your ipod while using the remote. The receiver also synced up with my existing Ijet remotes from my old ipod. Nice! For 25 bucks you can't go wrong.
Bottom line, the Monster EZClick remote is a good idea for people who want to control their ipod while being active. Unfortunately, the control issues are too frustrating, and sometimes dangerous, for it to be used the way it's intended to be. Save some money and get something that works.
