No Songs

 

Motorola makes great products, this one is on the line. Good sound quality is not present all around.

Light weight and encompasses all that you would need in a headset. Battery life is good and sound quality for phone is idea

Sound quality for music is a little less than I would expect from this headset

Cannot recommend

 

I have owned Motorola headsets in the past and have been very happy with the quality of sound, but not so much with the comfort or the buds staying in place. Hopefully they can find a way to get these 2 important factors together in 1 device, but I...

Comfortable and buds seem to stay in place well when moving and turning your head. I like the magnetic bud holders on the end of the neck piece. Controls are easy and intuitive. Good bluetooth range and connection quality, no lag in audio playback

The sound volume and quality are, bluntly, terrible. The buds do little to filter any outside noise and the quality of the sound was very tinny with non existent bass. Even with the device and headset volume pegged at max the volume was not high enough...

He said, she said

 

Bought them for my husband. He says he likes them and they work well. From strictly a performance standard he's satisfied. However, he doesn't like the look and tries to hide them so "I don't look like an idiot.

Work great for phone calls and music

My husband can't hear me when he's wearing them and I can't always tell. I suspect he may be faking it at times

confused but works well.

 

purchased two at the same time. both black and same model numbers. We received a blue one and a black one. One with a tiny usb charger one with a wall charger, one with a bag, one with out. other than that they seem the same. I don't know why it is...

audio is pretty good, people say they can hear us. buttons are all in a good place

bit awkward for those who haven't used this type of device

MOTOROLA 89588N

 

I say this is a good deal, since I only paid $40 versus the normal price of $69.99 on Motorola's site. If you can get it on sale, I say go for it.

Battery Life - lasts about 20 hours, I usually only use it for about 4 hours a day (travelling to/from work each day)

Not really a con, but I guess took me awhile to get adjusted to the ridged feel. Coming from the LG HBS, these are more tight around your neck when worn. Unlike the LG's, which are more loose on your neck. It will take me a minute to get acclimated to...

Good price, not entirely functional

 

I bought these for working out, but found in the manual that Motorola doesn't recommend they be used for exercising. Too bad, because these are extremely comfortable and block out all external sound. Well, I guess they shouldn't be worn when walking...

This headset provides good value for the money. If you're looking for a decent bluetooth stereo headphone with phone headset, this would fit the bill. Best suited for general activity and commuting. The ear buds are comfortable and block external...

The external playback and call controls work differently and don't make as much sense as my current S9 set. The biggest fail is the Playback and Call controls are on the same button ; To control the audio start and stop when playing music, press the...

I like it

 

I think it's awesome. Light, very clear sound and nice bass. Before I bought them I research some reviews and I have found that one driver have stronger bass but I've tried and don't feel any difference so I'm not believe in this opinion

Great Bluetooth Stereo Headset

 

I do wish the wires were one color instead of two opposing colors, but oh well no biggy

Very light weight and comfortable around the neck. I have talked to several people on the phone with it and asked at the end if they could tell I was on Bluetooth and they all thought I had been holding the phone entire time. Quality sound music for...

It took some time to test out the 3 different size ear buds to find the correct ones, but once I figured it out everything sounds wonderful and it was worth the time
