Bought these during the last sale. Power button just failed after a bit less than 90 days, yesterday, apparently a frequent point of failure. Checking on warranty,

Swimming doesn't require headphones.

Bought one. Charged it. It didn't work. Only bluetooth device I've ever bought that couldn't be detected by an iTouch, bluetooth cellphone nor android tablet. Poor reviews confirm this is a risky buy.

I have had these since November. I bought them new for about $45. They've worked very well overall, although the earbuds can fall off if you aren't careful. Also, they will not be as loud as wired headphones. Many complaints in the reviews you'll read will discuss volume, but the expectations are pretty unreasonable.

I use mine in a very large fitness center and never have an issue with the signal. I leave the iPod nano with my things at the door. I only leave disappointed when the gym is very loud and my music is tough to hear.

They work well for running, but they're pretty heavy. Sweat hasn't been a problem - just make sure the charger port is closed tightly. For very long runs, I wouldn't recommend them due to comfort.

I contacted Motorola when one of my earbuds fell off and disappeared. They sent a new set of all the earbuds promptly and for free.

Lastly, Motorola has released the S11 model, which is much more expensive ($100 or more). However, there have been many users reporting issues with build quality, even though the headset reportedly works very well and has many nice features.

I think this headset is a very good value at $30, as long as the refurbs work like the new ones. For about $10 more, you can get a new one.

PROS
Improved comfort compared with rigid previous model. Lower price than before.
CONS
Horrible sound quality with music. Still not particularly comfortable.
BOTTOM LINE
We're not sure what happened here, but Motorola has blown it with the S10-HD, a stereo Bluetooth headset that sounds markedly worse than the prior model.

Bought one from woot a couple of months ago. The right side barely works now and the headphones hurt my ears. As said before the ear buds easily fall offf.

Had a S9 model until the volume stuck on it. Was great..up to that point.
Have heard the S10 is better if for anything to simply have on a bike ride or walk without "strings" attached.

Bought these during another recent Woot sale. Use them to listen to and watch The Price is Right at the gym.

What?

They're very quiet; even at full volume, I still have trouble hearing with them. They're also darned uncomfortable - some tipsters say "turn them upside down." They're still darned uncomfortable.

Battery life is decent. Pairing with multiple devices is a pain.

Glad I bought them but I wouldn't buy them again.

I have had these for about a year, I want to say I paid ~80 bucks for them, my only complaint is that sometimes I have to hit the "track forward button" multiple times b4 it skips, sometimes it "un-pairs" from my phone, but it is generally on gym days when I am wearing static-heavy synthetic fabrics which seem to short out my phone in general. for this price, u dont have anything to lose for a product with great sound and great performance. I saw a question as to whether these are totally water proof, NO, the are water (as in heavy sweat) resistant. great for running and working out. they come with mulitple earbuds for your ear type, I have no major beefs with these

I considered the set I bought before to be worth the $25 I paid for them. The earbuds definitely fall off like all the time, and it does kinda push on your head. The biggest problem was that the mike picked up every noise in the neighborhood, so I wasn't able to use for handsfree calling in the car. I ended up switching to a wired headset with poofy earmuffs (also from Woot).

Cr@p-free no more as of 5/26/2010!

I love mine. I've been extremely impressed with the range — often crystal clear for more than 80 feet, even through a door or wall. They pair easily and automatically with my iPhone.

The battery seems to consistently last most of 4 hours.

Superglue the earbuds and the rubber temple cushions on.

They're a little tight if you have a big head. I had sore spots over my ears where they pressed my skull for a couple of weeks.

Still, I snagged a spare set last time because I can't imagine being without them should my current pair finally die or get lost. Once you go wireless you'll never…well, rarely…go back.

YMMV.

There is a reason that these show up on Woot and other discounters so often. These have a high return rate. The power button failure has been mentioned several times here and it can't be stressed enough that it is a crap shoot as to whether you will get one that will hold up over time. I went through 3 returns before giving up and doing a self repair I found online that involved glueing a small piece of tin foil underneath the power button to improve contact. Now it works 75% of the time. If you want my advice, pay $10 more for a used Motorola S305 on Amazon. It is a much better quality product.

I bought these when they first came out at a much higher price.

Clarity - Nothing special but not bad.

Volume - Great. I used the biggest cushions to drown out outside noise. No problem mowing or weed wacking while listening to music.

Battery Life - Pretty good. Charged them every night and used them sometimes a whole work day.

Bluetooth - No problems linking but I did have to keep phone pretty close (same room) to maintain signal.

Fit - Probably my only downside. These things eventually hurt after a while. Sometimes put them on upside down to relieve pressure.

I can only speak for myself but I really enjoyed these headphones. I do believe others' negative comments so I guess I got a "good batch"

I bought a pair of these awhile back from Woot. They look great setting on my desk. A reminder to NOT buy Motorola again. They have never worked from day one. Time on the phone, time online, etc...they refuse to pair with anything successfully.

I'll give you my address, send me your money and you'll get exactly the same amount of satisfaction I have from mine. Although, I'll be considerably cheered up and you will have done a good deed. Woot rocks, these headphones somewhat less so.

Honestly I love my pair. At this price, you can't get any better. I will say they don't fit well with glasses of any kind.

I love them but you have to be super gentle with them. I've never had the ear buds come off, but I put them on and remove them slowly. I heard people complain the buttons don't work, so I try and use my phone for volume and tracking. Power button still works great.
There is a TON to be said for the discomfort. You basically need to wear the ear buds that seem the most comfortable at first, then stick with it; they are going to be downright painful in your ears for about a week. Then your ears adjust and they are awesome. I seriously couldn't be happier with them. Had them for close to a year. Bought them here, refurbished.

I got these on woot about 4 months ago, and I love them. I have yet to have any problems with them, and I use them at the gym about 4 days a week.

But that doesn't come without a few howevers. They aren't very loud. So if you're looking for some bass boomin' action, look elsewhere. If you're someone with long hair, they can get a little annoying, because they hover on the back of your neck, and they are covered in a silicone like material. And the first two weeks or so that I had them, they were very tight on my head, but they did break in, and now they're very comfortable.

The sound quality is good, but you have to find the right sized earbud for your ears. I've never had a problem with the earbuds falling off.

I haven't heard it for myself, but my friend says that it has very good voice quality for calls.

All in all, I wouldn't buy them again if they broke, but they are a very good starter blutooth headset. After using them, I'm probably not going to go back to wired one.

But for a non-smartass answer, no, they are not waterproof. They aren't even sweat proof as the claim to be.

I would NOT recommend purchasing these if you wear glasses! I have had these since the last time woot sold them, and I can say that the feeling of plastic on plastic on skin is not an enjoyable one. These headsets, while being decent enough, can be quite uncomfortable and sometimes downright painful if you wear corrective lenses throughout your whole day. I recommend taking your glasses off and putting them on over this headset if you choose to use it.

I have been using these as somewhat disposable BT headphones. I've had them last as long as 90 days, or as short as less than two weeks. I believe the problem is that they are not nearly as sweat proof as they should be if they're going to make that claim. I sweat a lot, and live in FL, sothey are constantly gettign wet. It appears to be just a matter of time before they fail.

Very happy for those who have found a pair that holds up, but haven't had that experience myself.

I'm on my 5th or 6th pair, with a couple more spares lying around, but have passed on these the last few time they came up, and will pass this time.

Based on lots of feedback from members of our tri club, I just bit the bullet on a set of Jaybirds, which seem to have the best reputation for holding up to sweat.

Good point. I've had the same experience with sunglasses.

If you enjoy listening to music then do not buy these. It is a decent Bluetooth headset though since phone calls don't have to sound great. Oh, and they are uncomfortable.

I bought these to wear while mowing the lawn. They were okay for that purpose and while they lasted (which was one use). A couple of weeks later and they would no longer pair. Obviously YMMV, and $25 isn't a large investment, but this was my experience.

I got a set from Woot about three months ago. They work great.

My Motoactv GPS watch has no problem detecting it.

I use it running, not for critical listening, and the sound is good.

I run outside, so the ambient noise isn't a problem, and they play plenty loud; I have the volume turned down on them quite far.

I have a fairly large head, and don't have a problem with the fit or comfort.

I usually don't run for more than a couple of hours and haven't had a problem with charge time.

Two thumbs up from me, especially for $25.

I have had the s9 for many years and I barely used them because of the poor and uncomfortable design. It looks like the S10 is sleaker, but pretty much looks the same. Too much pressure on the ears, uncomfortable if not painful over extended use, and annoying as all hell if you have a collared shirt or jacket.

I just bought the LG HBS 730 Tone+ and could not be happier. From my experience, these have great sound, super long batter life, and are extremely comfortable to the point you forget you're wearing them. From reviews, they have excellent sound for stereo bluetooth. From an audiophile standpoint, the sound is okay, but wired will always sound better than a BT. It works great with my Iphone 4 with zero connection problems and a range of about 30 feet. It was definitely worth the 52 dollar price tag on amazon. Although 25 bucks is a good price for stereo bluetooth headphones, I'd shell out the cash for something you'd actually use on the regular...IMHO.

I've had these for about a year (bought from woot), my experience:

Love them. I've probably spent a fortune on headphones through the years and these have lasted me the longest. I use them when I work out, or when I want to listen to music around the house. Good range and sound. It is a bit low in certain environments, but never been so bad that it's been a problem.

The buds do fall out, I somehow managed to keep mine for a while even though they fell out after use almost daily.

I ended up ordering these: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B003H0DR5K/ref=oh_details_o04_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

They work much better.

I also got a pair for my mom, and she uses them daily as well. Might buy another, for the price they've been one of my best purchases on woot.

I bought these last November and have been very happy with them. They have some faults,but overall a good purchase. I am not sure where people are getting the 4hr music time from, as i work 10hr graves and can usually get 6-7hrs easily. On average I get 8-9hrs of talk time...continuous... don't ask :/. They can pinch if you have a larger head, but they do flex and i have found that they fit nicely and always stay in place. The audio quality and bluetooth range is awesome, though the volume is at times quite... especially while talking to someone. The biggest complaint I get from people on the other end is that the microphone pick up everything... it does a piss-poor job of noise-canceling. Overall definitely worth the asking price today. just my 2 cents worth.
