Purchased these on Feb. 3rd. Have to say, they were not my first choice as after doing a lot of research I previously had bought the Jaybird Freedom, then the Denon AH-W150 Wireless earphones - both now returned!! This proves that the reviews are not always right! Both the Denon and Jaybird Freedom were rated so much higher - in terms of comfort - no way!
The Motorola SF600 is straightforward, stylish, connects to any phone with Bluetooth access, and is COMFORTABLE!! Basically if you want to set yourself apart from the crowd, it's the biz. It does what it says on the tin, and surely that's what you want!

Really nicely made headphones. Seem expensive but when you take them out of the box they feel like extremely high quality items.
I took them out for my first run and found them coming out of my ears quite a lot. Luckily there are loads of different ear buds to choose from and I found the large grooved pair were great.
Back out on the road and no issues with the earphones coming out this time. The sound quality is good but not great, it is lacking in bass and they are not really that loud. You certainly cannot completly block out traffic noise like you can with my wired earphones (JVC XXX's).
I really wanted these to be my ideal headphones, if there is one thing that is really annoying when out running it is wires as they always just get in the way. This is my third pair of different wireless earphones as I have yet to find a really great pair that I am happy with.
The battery life on these is great, there is a battery meter that pops up at the top of the iPhone screen so you know how much you have got left.
I have used these headphones at least twice a week over the last 2 months whilst our running and have found them to be really good and fairly comfortable. I have not worn then for more than an hour so I can't comment on how comfy they are over this period. The low volume levels I can live with although a bit more would be nice.
As stated earlier, the build quality is really good and after two months the earphones still look great.
So far so good, so why the one star rating?
Well, I went to use the earphones the other day and they were dead, no power. So I ran with my wired earphones.
Got back and went to put these earphones on to charge, then the issue was discovered. The socket where the charger plugs into was completely corroded and although the charger will plug in, there is no connection to the charger and I cannot charge these earphones up.
Two months of twice a week use and I can now no longer use these earphones. These earphones are advertised as sweatproof and the charger socket has a rubber plug which has always been in place and yet these earphones no longer work.
It is such a shame as other than this problem I have found these earphones to be really good and I was more than happy to use them every time I go out training. I went out yesterday with my wired pair and it reminded me why I really need to find a good reliable pair of wireless earphones.
Despite all of the technology available, it would seem they do not yet exist.
The search for the holy grail of wireless earphones continues....
On a plus point, I contact Amazon to see how I can invoke the 12 month manufacturer guarantee as they are now outside of the 30 day return window and Amazon said, send them back to use and we will give you a full refund!
I cannot believe how good the customer service is from Amazon.
Motorola earphones 1 star
Amazon customer service 10 stars

I purchased these for my wife because she wanted a good set of headphones for running. These looked like the perfect product! I promptly dropped my £60 after reading a couple of reviews saying how good these were.
My wife enjoyed her first run with them. By the time she went for her second run with them, a day later, the left earbud was non-functioning - all but a very faint sound coming from them. There was no visible damage, nothing untoward had happened to them. I sent them back to Amazon, asking for a replacement, which was delivered in good time.
The second pair lasted about as long, same problem - the left earbud makes virtually no sound. I've attempted to return the item but I've missed Amazon's "return window". So I now own a £60 pair of headphones, where one earbud doesn't work. I'm hoping Motorola are going to stand by their manufacturers guarantee, but I don't hold high hopes.
My advice is to look for another pair of headphones, avoid these duds.

I have only had the headphones for a few days, but they are better than I expected. They fit well and the sound quality is great. On the subway they cancel noise well enough that I can hear a tv show
At the current price, there is definitely value. I have paid more for sets that were not as good.
