I had a lot of hope when I got these but they simply do not perform up to even minimal expectations.
There are things that I really liked. The minimalist hands free design. The simplicity of connecting and use. The quality of the connection and the quality of the sound. All of these are "As" for me.
My issue and why it went from an "A" to a "D" is that the mic has major performance issues. I can not use these to speak on the phone.
Everyone, and I mean everyone has all said within seconds of being on the phone with me that I sounded muffled, garbled and that they couldn't understand me.
Even when I pulled the mic up to my mouth they still couldn't hear me clearly. Since I spend a lot of time on the phone this is a major issue for me.
These are the best blue tooth earbuds I've owned. Wife got the for me last Christmas and I have used them everyday since. Only problem I've had is that I lost some of the rubber earbud tips. Great value for the money, great quality and ilive is now one of my favorite vendors.
I bought the blue pair of earbuds recently. I had them charging for over 12 hours and the red charging indicator was STILL on. In the packaging you're suppose to receive two different sized ear tips. I never got any in the package. The lights do not turn on no matter how long I hold the button. They're too overpriced for what you get and how they work. With the $25 you could go on Amazon and find a somewhat decent pair of wireless earbuds. Will not spend another penny on this company. At least make your products work. The button doesn't work on my iPhone 7 plus. It also doesn't work on my friends Galaxy Note 5. Hopefully I can get a refund for this piece of trash. The earbuds don't stay in your ear. You turn your head and they fall out. The design of them is idiotic. The earbud piece itself is so long that if you push it in to your ear like you would a normal earbud, it pushed against your ear drum, plugs your ear, and creates a non-friendly pain. WORST EARBUDS I HAVE EVER OWN!! DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY!!
Overall Great for people who sit at a desk all day and want something more comfortable. Great for working out, for those who bring their phone to the gym (I do – I keep my workouts on it, listen to music and I work out during lunch/work so need to be abl
Super comfortable. Great for having them on all day at the office. Normally, I’m actually not a huge fan of the rubber/suction fit type ear buds as I like to hear what’s going on outside of the noise in my headphones…but that’s just me. These make it easy though to remove the ear buds and let it tether back into the little receptacle if I want to hear out of one ear or something. I actually wore these to the gym which was great because I never wear headphones at the gym when lifting weights due to the wire getting in my way. This allowed me to lift weights unobstructed. I haven’t run in them yet, but assume that will be a breeze as well.
Seems great on my end. On the other end however, had people say they could hear a lot of background noise…like that they were “picking up everything” or “hearing every car that passed me” – when I was driving. I haven’t heard this complaint when I’m just in the office.
It was really easy to pair and the controls are simple, easy to reach up and adjust volume, etc. The USB charging is nice as I just keep the USB plugged into my laptop and charge every so often.
