I had these and liked them but the battery is not replaceable and I did not like that!

I have a pair of these. I really like them. At first they were a little tight and after a couple hours I would get a little tender behind my ears where all the pressure goes. They have since loosened up a bit and it's not a problem.

The nice thing about these ones is that the battery is on the side behind your ears (which causes them to be tight at first). A lot of these headphones have the battery on the back so it rests on your neck. The problem with that is that when you are running it can bounce up and down. This design avoids that.

I'm not sure why you would need a replaceable battery for these things. I guess everyone wants everything replaceable. They usually last me about a week on one charge at my usage levels.

Lastly, the range is pretty good but the signal can easily be blocked by your body. I have to keep my phone in my right pocket so it's on the same side as the receiver. I can go all around my office without a problem if I leave it at my desk though.

I continue to search for an affordable, sweat-proof BT headset which has ACTUAL background noise reduction (outgoing) for phone calls---this one doesn't, despite its claims. You need 2 microphones for effective noise cancellation---this set has 1.

Call audio quality is important to me. I work out a lot, and invariably get phone calls at the gym. I've tried several stereo bluetooth headsets that have all failed miserably on the noise problem---callers can't hear me well, due to the blaring overhead music at my gym. Worse, some bluetooth stereo headsets I've tried actually AMPLIFIED "harmless", quiet ambient noises, like running water in a sink or crumpling some paper, making a horrible racket for callers. My Motorola S305's were god-awful that way.

I've also had a few headsets abruptly die (my Plantronics Backbeats come to mind), failing to charge, leading me to believe sweat seeped in and shorted out the battery. My suspicion, anyway---I get pretty sweaty while working out.

@ktg: I would prepare to spend a lot more if I needed that much with my bt set. The s305 is the same price as this, can't really blame them for not having noise reduction at this price point.

@stilesbn: "I'm not sure why you would need a replaceable battery for these things. I guess everyone wants everything replaceable. They usually last me about a week on one charge at my usage levels."

it would be lovely to NOT have to throw it in the trash (well, e-cycle) after 18 months, that's why. If I could have replaced the battery, I would not have had to replace the entire set.
