Superb sound quality, excellent battery life, comfortable and snug fitting
setup isn't for anyone, size may be slightly too large

Where to begin...I want to point out the biggest drawback of this device, the installation. The unit can connect two ways to a bluetooth device, as a headset or a high quality audio device. The latter requires a special bluetooth profile called A2DP(advanced audio distribution profile). Motorola does state this a few times amongst the manual but that is only on their end. It took me the better part of the day to figure out what that profile was and if my PDA (IPAQ hx2415) came with it. It didn't. The unit still connected with the headphones but the sound quality was poor and volume was low. That was due to the pda recognizing it as a headset and not using the A2DP. Once I was able to localize an update for the pda which contained it (another two hours) is when I was blown away.
It my just be me, but when I put the headphones on and look at myself in the mirror, I look like the sony alien from those walkman commercials a few years ago. Them seem to buldge outwards just a tad, but since it's the first gen and considering everything that motorola is cramming into the device, it's not that bad.
Nobody can argue the sound quality of the headphones, I am utterly amazed at the performance and the stability of the bluetooth connection. It wraps nicely around your head and the buttons are conviniently located. I can dump my pda in my bag and skip through my tracks using the provided fwd and rev buttons. There is also volume control, a play/pause button and the sync button. Oh, I almost forgot the best part, you can sync it with your bt phone and take calls!! Better yet, the unit lowers the volume when a call comes in and alerts your with a beep. The push of the left M button picks up the call. The built in mic is awesome, due in part to digital signal processing. Once the conversation is over you can return back to your music without a hitch. I definitely recommend this product to anyone who is looking for wireless headphones or who enjoys listening to music and also doesn't want a bt headset that you can lose at any moment. Happy jamming!
