OK for the money but not spectacular
Sound quality is reasonable, but not spectacular - I've had to add sponges to get enough bass out of them. They are only just about loud enough in the street, but if I travelled regularly on the London Underground they definitely wouldn't be loud enough. Earbuds fit OK but the volume control is large, heavy and poorly positioned - it either snags my shirt collar or digs into my neck. Battery box snags clothing whether I run it round the back or front of my neck, so turning my head to cross a road will often pull it out of my ear, especially with a coat on. Bluetooth connection is usually fairly prompt and only breaks up very occasionally. Battery life as claimed - about 4.5 hours. HOWEVER I've read a lot of reviews of 'premium' products and I've yet to be convinced that any of them are guaranteed to eliminate ALL of these drawbacks... so I'm gradually coming round.

Product is great
The bluetooth earphones are amazing at what it's designed for. It stays very firmly in your ear and will not drop out even if you're getting your cardio done. Even though it has the best design, quality and aesthetics, the sound is not the most amazing quality. I find that the sound is very heavy and has alot of bass to it. I tried to find a way to reduce the bass but i could not find one.
