Sees me through many a gym session
on 7 March 2013
I brought this headset to use down the gym as I have had a few near misses with my phone when the lead on my previous headphones got caught on something or I plain forgot it was there.
I use these headphones with a Samsung S3. I have not used the call option or the FM radio (the gym is in a basement so I don't get mobile or FM reception) so cannot comment on those. The bluetooth reception is good enough to be able to leave the phone in one spot and move between machines within a few metres.
The earpieces are a good fit and stay in place throughout my session on the treadmill. I was worried that they looked bulky in the pictures but find that once they're on I hardly notice them. The headset comes with alternative ear buds but I have found the default ones the most comfortable as I have a tragus piercing. The sound quality is perfectly fine for my needs and reaches a decent volume (the volume control on the headset seems to give a slight boost once your phone has hit it's limit).
A fully changed battery lasts about 2 hours. As I'm usually in the gym for an hour at a time this is fine and I usually pop it on charge when I get back so it's ready for the next time.
Overall I'm very happy with the purchase and would recommend them.
