I’m always on the lookout for good headphones. I walk around all day and if I don’t have something to listen to, be it an audiobook or music, I’ll go crazy. I’m also ducking under desks to plug things in, and headphone cords always get in the way. So I started to look for a bluetooth headset. The iPhone has had the ability to transmit audio via bluetooth for some time now, as well as use a bluetooth headset for voice calls.
At first, I tried the regular bluetooth headset that hooks to your ear, and attaches to another headphone, and that didn’t work because that’s just one more thing to lose. Then I decided to look for something a little more sturdy.
Enter the S10-HD Stereo Bluetooth Headset from Motorola. This is exactly what I was looking for. As the name suggests, this is a stereo bluetooth headset that goes behind your head. The headset comes with a charger that’s compatible with a standard Mini-USB port, as well as 4 sets of ear buds to fit your ears.
The headphones include a built-in microphone so you can talk, just like a normal bluetooth headset. From all my use of the headset, I’ve found that people on the other end can hear me just fine, with a minimum of background noise. It has controls for playing music on one ear, and controls for handling a phone call on the other ear.
On to the main focus of the device, the music. To my ears, this device sounds just like the headphones I plug in to the phone. It sounds great! I listen to a mixture of rock and audiobooks, so the sound is fine for my ears.
The battery lasts for around 6-8 hours of continuous use, which is the cause of one of my complaints, as I always forget to plug it in. My other complaint is that, while the advertising says that it’s sweat proof, the cushions that are supposed to come between the headphones and your head are trying to fall off, due to the moisture that they end up absorbing. I solved that by taping them back on, which isn’t very elegant, but it works.
Those complaints out of the way, I think this is a great solution for someone that needs cordless headphones but wants to listen to audio all day. I’ve included a link to Amazon below, and if you purchase through it, I’ll get a commission from your purchase.
