I am on my 3rd Jaybird headset. I bought the Freedom version first - that stopped working after a couple of months and I received a refund. I used this to by the Sportsband, which had just come out. That lasted around 6 months then also broke (would not charge anymore - same problem as the Freedom). I received a free replacement (good) but that too after 12 months has started to go wrong; a buzzing noise now emanates from one speaker at certain frequencies. Its very disturbing and really takes away from the pleasure of listening to the headphones. Unfortunately its out of the warranty period so no replacement this time. Under the foam cover I find that the headset protection piece has completely rusted - I don't know if this is the cause but given Jaybird's strong statements about being sweat proof, I am surprised to see this. On checking the Amazon.com I find my situation is not uncommon - there are other complaints about the build quality of these products.

On the plus side - when it worked, it was great - good sound quality - mostly stays in position in working out or running (though tends to fall off when doing press-ups). And it looks nice. For my replacement however I will look elsewhere; there is too much risk of getting another poor quality product, and then having to go through the returns hassle etc - which I don't find acceptable at this price level.

WOW! Finally a decent stereo Bluetooth set of headphones!

I've been using them in the gym, and they are great. Peace of mind from the life time sweat and perspiration guarantee also provides peace of mind.

Bieng able to control my iPhone from the controls on the headset is really useful, and even in my most determined efforts on the treadmill, they havent come off my head! Unreal!

Loving the product! Thanks.

By Jon on 8 Dec. 2011
I bought these as they seemed to tick all my boxes. I just lost an ipod to a headphone lead incident in the men's toilets and decided blue tooth was the way to go. I also wanted to use these with skype. I also listen to the music at the gym and while running, so the sweat proof guarantee sounded great. The reality is that any multi-functioning product tends to do everything averagely and nothing particularly well.

The Good:
I wear these regularly in the gym and am surprised how well they stay on during weights sessions and running. The sweat proofing seems to work as I sweat a couple of pints every week and they are still working after 4 months.
The charge is impressive; I've only run it down fully once, charging once a week. Although as others have pointed out it is annoying having a unique charging cable.

The bad:
It seems these were designed for style rather than comfort and it is hit and miss whether your head is the right shape. I am lucky and can wear them for about 2 hours before it starts getting a bit uncomfortable (I have quite a small head). They are adjustable, but my girlfriend can't find a comfortable setting for her.
They draw attention but probably because they look a bit stupid. I would prefer more classical looking over ear headphones.
The sound is ok. I have never had a bluetooth headset before, so nothing to compare them to. I saw one review compare them to a pair of monster by dre solo's. Do not expect anything like that quality of sound.
I no longer use these for skype as the microphone seems to be worse than my webcam and it doesn't transmit clearly. One of my major reasons for buying them was so I could walk around the room while one skype with no loss of sound so this was quite disappointing.

After two months use these completely stopped working. despite having registered the lifetime guarantee direct with Jaybird they are not interested and said to contact the seller. The lifetime guarantee seems to last as long as the headphones as I've emailed gear camera twice in three weeks and had no response...... SAVE YOUR MONEY AS THERE IS NOTHING LIKE S***E CUSTOMER SERVICE & PRODUCTS.

These fit and stay on the ears VERY nicely. I have quite a big head and find these a lovely comfy fit.

It's just a shame the audio quality for music is not even as good as £10 earbuds or the standard white Apple buds. There's bass but no top end - there seems to be a cutoff at the mid-range and you have no sense of clarity or sparkle in any music.

Furthermore, I've not used these for anything sweaty or in the rain (just for walking the dog) and the earpieces have gone very rusty (underneath the foam covers), plus there is clearly rust throughout the headband as it is starting to show through the white rubber coating.

Another issue is that the charging cable requires lots of wiggling before charging actually kicks in (solid red light) - I have a feeling the inside of the charger socket is going rusty and that's the cause of this.

So basically, I cannot recommend these as they are made from REALLY poor quality materials and sound very disappointing with music (are OK with spoken word though).

I read a lot of reviews and was aware of some of the faults others had experienced. I was hoping i'd be lucky and not encounter any problems, not to be..
I wanted ones which fitted whilst running, hence the overhead fittings. Worked great for first 30 mins on treadmill then the volume buttons started going haywire and bleeping crazily. The next 30 mins spent trying to fix them, hugely frustrating.
Going to return them and not going to risk getting another pair given the other reviews i've read.
The problem is getting another reasonably specced headphones... they all seem to have some problem or other.
