UPDATE: No longer charging! They've only lasted 4 months, and now regardless of cable or charger, it no longer charges. For this it get marks down to 2 stars. These are still easily one of my favourite headphones I've owned but to be broken already is a shame.
To test this earphone I have installed call recording app and made a lot of calls to my wife in various conditions ranging from quite to noisy background, indoors and outdoors. Every time she said my voice is clear. Certainly there would bit noisy when you are in a noisy surroundings but the plus is that your voice would be clear. I later listened to all my recordings and found the voice clear and audible even in the tests where I spoke very softly.
My second big requirement was noise isolation or cancellation. These earphones come with isolation. I was a bit skeptical before buying it but I can tell you that the isolation works wonders. The ear bud that came fitted with it, fitted perfectly in my ear and lowered the background noises significantly. The isolation is very strong that it took me little time to adjust to that. While calling I do not feel comfortable with that much isolation where I hear my voice much louder so i loosen the ear buds a little (tip for you). The benefit of this that you start listening at much lower volume which is very good for your ear.
I use the earphone mostly for audio books so I need isolation which I mentioned earlier is very good and clarity. I can say from my extensive testing and usage that I am totally satisfied with this for my use. I also listen to music a little and found that the sound is very crisp and nice bass-y.
Battery life is ok.i expected better battery time. Since I used it extensively for testing and left it connected to my phone all the time, the battery lasted 1-1.5 days of usage which included standby time, talk time, music playing and few videos playback. I believe the battery is ok if not exceptional.
The earphone comes with 3 buds of each type (2 in total). 1 type of normal round buds and the other with an extra extension to offer increased grip. I used the one you can see in the product picture and found them very comfortable. I have wore it for extensive period of time and didn't feel tired or ache. Around the neck they site comfortably and lock with each other with magnet so they are secure and no chance of them falling off. They also come with a detachable clip and a small thing which I think can be used to tie the wires if they are big. But I found the size very right for me (I don't have a big neck :) ). The product is not heavy so you don't feel any burden on your neck. The left and right ear portions are very well built and look very decent when worn.
Pairing is pretty easy and fast. The controls are good. My only complain is that you have to give a little pause in between multiple pushes to increase/decrease volume. You cannot just keep pushing the button and expect the volume to change in multiple steps. In my other headphones, the buttons would play next track and you have to hold it for a while to increase volume (and vice versa for other button). But in these the good thing is the default operation of the button is volume and you have to hold the button for next track. The other way round is very inconvenient as you have to change volume more than changing the track and mostly i ended up changing track instead of volume.
All in all I am very very satisfied with the product and considering the price, I think it's a steal. Go for it!

Sound quality 5/5
I realise these are sports headphones and i have used them for cycling but i also use them for work for calls, the only downside i have found is because i am quite a big guy ( 18.5" collar ) the cable isnt really long enough to have around my neck held together with the magnets when wearing over my polo shirt, so i have to have them inside against my neck, which is a niggle rather than an actual issue, a few cm of extra cable length would have made these perfect.
The only other issue i have is that the charge port cover doesnt sit flush on my set so i often catch it on clothing pulling it out from covering the charge point, now i havent used these in the rain yet but i would imagine this would be an issue if i did, i am going to contact anker support on this though and see what they suggest, no amount of bending it straight makes it sit flush so maybe i just have a duff one.
I bought these not for sports but general use around the home and shed, they haven't let me down with dropped or garbled connections on either my mobile and desktop computer.
I use a Gigabyte Brix as my desktop computer, it is located in a room downstairs to the back and I can wonder around my home including upstairs to the front bedroom without any drop outs.
I have had various makes and models of bluetooth headphones but these out rank them all both on price, quality and range. Connections on the others would drop out if the wind blew in the wrong direction.
Listening time is governed by volume and a low volume does give a good listening time.
The only reason for giving them 4 stars is that in the description they are stated as being 'Slim', they stick out as much as others.
Cons: They drop Bluetooth connection drops every 15-20 mins - I've had Bluetooth headphones half this price that managed not to do this fine. They reconnect automatically after a second or so, but that still means you then have to press play again - annoying if you are at the gym or walking outside with gloves on. The buttons are too small to find with thin gloves on while outside in winter. Maybe it is my head-size but the cable seems too long to dangle down and too short to wrap over the top of my ears. I'm forced to tuck the cable into my collar, which then comes lose if I turn my head. If you leave the cable dangling then the control panel hits against your coat collar or your neck which isn't that annoying but that makes an very loud 'thud' sound in the ear bud. Also there is no 'low battery' warning, they just turn off. The battery last a decent amount of time.
I think if you are wanting headphones for sitting and listening to music then these are a great choice, it is where they excel. For going out and about I'd look elsewhere, personally I'd go for a 'hard frame' rather than dangling cable again.
