Still working out the kinks

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Not sure if I'm ready to give these more than 2 stars yet. I've used them twice. Once was riding my mountain bike, the other was yard work. For riding, these things seem great, no wires, solid feel in my ear, etc. However, if you have the phone in your back jersey pocket(same side as the BT receiver) you get fairly choppy sound with loss of signal. The headphone is within 2 feet of the phone, but apparently they don't transmit through your body, so its slightly frustrating. I was happy when I didn't have to look left, as that's where I lost my sound.

During yard work, I had my phone in my right front pocket of some shorts, and the sound wasn't cutting out or choppy nearly as much, but did have some interruptions.

I'd give these a solid 2 stars for the first two uses. I plan on trying them with my phone in the top pocket of the hydration pack (closer to the ears) to see if that helps at all, but it may be better to fork out the money for the nicer version coming out soon or some Jaybirds.

Sweet Earphones

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I use these at work mostly. They are easy to pair with a computer or iPod. They have great range and sound really clear. The battery life is pretty good. I only have to charge it every other day or so, depending on how much I use them. They take a while to charge. (that's a slight downfall but alright) I liked them so much I bought a pair for my husband. We both really like them. Good price, good quality. I'd buy them again.

Yes, the ear clips are included when you purchase this item.

OK..I guess.....

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Awkward in the way they fit in your ear and the battery doesn't last long. I should have gone back with the LGs........

The battery will last up to 6 hours of talk time, and 7 hours for listening to music. Charging the device takes about 2 hours and requires plugging a USB cable into the back of one of the earbuds.

Will the earbuds connect to any type of bluetooth dongle? What im asking is I have a ipod nano 6gen, and I have a sony bluetooth dongle from a pair of sony headphones that broke, can the earbuds connect to this dongle to work?

Responded on

Impossible to know for sure, but if it's a Sony product, my guess would be "no." Sony is frequently "slightly proprietary" when it comes to their tech.

Best way to find out is to order them and then if they don't work, avail yourself of the excellent Backcountry return policy.

I've been using them for a while...

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

And I think they are great!
Super comfortable, easy to set up and I think battery live is pretty decent.

I use them when running, biking, just walking around or at the office. They are a great buy!

broke after a week of use

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I liked it when it worked but after a week the volume button stopped working. Besides that, I would have recommended the product. I really like the freedom of no cords and the range was really good as well.

Love the idea, but range is terrible..

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I love the concept and look of these headphones. The fit is comfortable, lightweight, and great quality of sound; however, the range is TERRIBLE. Not even two feet away and they get choppy for some reason. Wouldn't even connect to my macbook pro? Too bad since I loved the look and feel.

My husband uses these while running. He says that his music cuts in and out a lot. He wears his phone on his right arm. Is there a reason for this to happen? My son also has a pair and hasn't complained of this problem. He has only had these for 2 weeks.

Hello Scollins,
There may be 1 of 2 issues. It's most likely a faulty wire, which would mean you've received a defective product. There could also be an issue with the AUX port on the phone where you plug the headphones in. I would have your hubby double check the integrity of the port with a different pair of headphones, to make sure the phone isn't the culprit. If the phone is fine, then you've probably got a busted pair.
Chat or call in to a Gearhead and we can help you a fresh pair sent over.

none of the reviews talk much about using for calling as a primary use. I'd like to know more about how they would perform for this. Is there wind or back ground noise? Does the sound come through the cable?

Awesome

I love that i can plug my phone in and let it charge while i can walk up to 30-40 feet away and still have music streaming through the earphones.

Never heard of DF before this transaction. Incredible service, and thoroughly impressed all the way around, even in the follow up and communication styles. Class act.

game changers

I absolutely love these. I had been eying them for a while and finally decided I had to buy em'. No more using cords like a chump, get on the Bluetooth tip. These allow you to perform all sorts of maneuvers you never thought possible while using your old headphones. Dragon kicks? No problem. Falcon punches? Without a doubt.

Also, these come with plastic hooks (detachable) which hook around your ear for aerobic activities that might cause them to fall out otherwise. The sound is great and the different sized tips it comes with really allow you to dial in your fit. Highly recommended.

I'd discovered that not all Bluetooth components work together. What 'thread' can I use as a guide to determine which ones will?

Great Product

These are great! Compact and comfortable with fantastic sound. I got them for when running on the treadmill. I tend to hit the wire and my phone goes flying, with these I have no worries!
