    A shopper on Mar 15, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. You would only be able to pair these earphones to be used with one device at a time. The devices should be able to remember the earphones bluetooth profile to make it easier to pair to. I hope this helps.

    How to pair with iphone7?
    New User U on May 29, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Just push the pair bluetooth button. Have one headphone in as it will let you know when "connected"
    Does anyone know for sure is these support AAC codec? The Technical specs don't say either way. BTW I own a different headset from Monoprice that does support AAC and its manual is also void about these details.
    Mark L on Feb 8, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: AAC is a way of encoding audio files that is decoded by your device (phone, computer) into raw audio signals which are sent to the headphones. So, no headphones are "supporting" AAC, but it is a lot simpler to just say "yes" than to explain all this.

    I *really* wanted to love these
    I have been looking for a decent priced set of BT headphones for a while. Very few I have tried work out for me. I had high hopes and initially I felt good about them. Unfortunately, they just aren't even close to water resistant let alone sweat proof! The first thing that acts up is the control bar. It isn't positioned very well. It hangs down about 2 inches below your right ear. It seems that the microphone is inside of it, necessitating its position. Unfortunately as I sweat, the sweat runs down my hair, ear, and the cord and drips onto the control bar. Unfortunately, the bar also rests against my neck so it catches all the sweat that runs there as well. So, what does all of this mean? Simply put, I start having problems after about 4 miles. Obviously, 1 or more button shorts out / intermittently makes a connection. So, the unit will turn off, the volume will go up or down, the track will change, etc...

    Unfortunately, that isn't the only problem. One of the ear pieces will drop in volume during my long run. I don't know if it is because of sweat (moisture) gets inside the unit or on the speaker (driver) but certainly at a certain point it sounds like someone has shifted the 'balance' over to one side. I've tried changing out the ear buds to the larger set (3 sets are included: Small, Med, & Large with the Mediums installed when shipped). No improvement was noticed with the largest set of buds installed (I was hoping to get a better seal to keep more moisture out).

    To the units credit, they have started working properly again when I leave them out to dry for around 48 hours (in sunlight and in a house with AC (low humidity)). I do wonder how long it will take until the connections inside the unit corrode from the salt in my sweat and they stop working.

    Battery life seems decent out of the gate. I don't know how fast the battery life will deteriorate since I won't be using these for any long runs. FWIW: I run about 30 minutes 3 mornings a week and about 90-115 minutes every other weekend.

    I've been very happy with every other MonoPrice branded item I've purchased. I'm so sorry that I can't possibly recommend these to endurance athletes.

    PLEASE NOTE: In the first few photos of the earbuds, you can't really see what I'm talking about (it's slightly more visible in the last photo). Please take into consideration that the memory wire has to wrap out front, over, and then behind your ear for these buds to fit correctly. So, while the control bar *might* seem to be plenty far away from the earpiece, it isn't.

    By all means, if you:
    Live in a cold climate
    Don't wear these while exercising
    Don't sweat much (light intensity, not keeping up on hydration, etc...)
    then these might be a great match for you.

    Also, please note that I bought these very early on. Perhaps they will fix later versions.

    PROS: Very fair price
    Decent sound quality

    CONS: NOT sweat proof. The specs say:
    Water Resistance: Up to 10 liters/minute for 5 minutes
    Maximum Water Pressure: 21.7 psi (150 kPa)
    I can't possibly exceed those numbers!

    More bang for the buck
    I just got these this morning and immediately took them on my morning run. Flawless!! Great sound, bluetooth stayed connected and they never fell out of my ears. I've been on the hunt for a great pair of bluetooth earbuds for a while. Let me tell you, there is a lot of overpriced junk out there. I couldn't be more satisfied.

    PROS: Great sound. Bluetooth A++. Comes with an extra chord, earbud sizes and useful clip.

    CONS: I wish the wrap around things had a little less flex.

    Some drop outs
    These sound great and fit well but the sound drops out during activities. It may be the nature of Bluetooth but when I run with my phone in my pocket, it drops out, I think because it is moving with my leg. They work fine if I hold my phone. This did not seem to happen as much with the Product 11534, which, in hindsight I wish I had purchased instead.

    PROS: Sound great, fit well.

    CONS: Drop outs.

    I've been waiting for this...
    As soon as I saw this new product available on Monoprice, I pulled the trigger. I've experimented with a variety of bluetooth earphones to use while running, but haven't found the right balance between comfort, ease-of-use, and sound quality that was within my budget. I feel confident that I've found that balance with this product.

    Once out of the box, I easily paired them with my phone. I spent a few minutes working with the memory wire to adjust them to my ears. The wire was relatively easy to work with and maintained it's shape. To "lock" the buds in my ear, it took a slight twist. They remained in place throughout my activity without requiring further adjustment.

    The sound quality was very good - better than one should expect for Bluetooth headphones priced at under $30. I was somewhat surprised by how the earbuds sealed out external noise. In some cases, I recognize that this is a plus. When exercising outdoors, however, it can be disconcerting. Be aware of this when using them yourself.

    I expected to experience some ear fatigue after wearing them for an extended period. I was happy to discover that this was not the case. They remained comfortable after 90 minutes of continuous use. They are so lightweight that you might forget you have them on.

    I placed one call using the microphone on the headset. The recipient indicated she could hear me but that it picked up a lot of background noise. The microphone is placed in the controller, which one will generally wear behind the neck. Placing the controller (and cord) in front would probably improve the experience. As a note, I did not purchase this unit intending to utilize it as my day-to-day Bluetooth headset for phone calls therefore, this does not impact my rating.

    I highly recommend this product to folks looking for comfortable Bluetooth earbuds to complement physical activity.

    PROS: Lightweight.
    Easy setup.
    Excellent sound quality for the price point.

    CONS: The seal on your ear may make it difficult to hear external sounds, which is not unexpected with earbuds.
    The quality of the microphone could be better however, this is a secondary feature and would not have impacted my purchase.

    Everything seems great except the Bluetooth
    I agree with many other reviewers. These feel high quality and the speakers sound good with lots of low end (maybe TOO MUCH low end even). But if you plan on using these while walking or running with your phone in your pocket, they're essentially unusable. So many pauses and stutters that it's unlistenable. Just waving your hand between the source and the headphones can produce stutters. Also, while the speakers in them seem high quality, that means I can hear how low quality the bluetooth stream itself is. Sounds like about 64k mp3 (But these are my first bluetooth headphones, so maybe that's just as good as it gets)

    PROS: Seems sturdy and I like the design.
    Plenty of low-end.

    CONS: Bluetooth stream quality is bad.
    Connection quality is bad.

    Sound quality is great! Connection not so great.
    I have to say that the sound quality on these ear buds are better than expected as well as the comfort. So far they fit and stay in my ear better than all my other earbuds i have. The only downfall I've noticed is that sometimes when i put my phone in my pocket the music starts cutting in and out as if something is interfering with the signal from the phone to the earbuds. This gets pretty annoying since i don't use an armband for my iPhone.

    PROS: Sound

    CONS: connectivity issues when music source is in my pocket

    Great sound, excellent noise reduction
    I work in a busy office and sometimes I need to be in my own world and not have to crank the music up to block the 3 or 4 conversations going on at the same time these headphones are just what I needed. Audio wise these sound great with a little equalizer tweaking. I have had a couple of dropouts and some have mentioned but nothing that I'm going to worry about.

    PROS: Sound quality, price, build, light weight, multiple sized ear plugs, ambient noise supression, and plenty of volume.

    CONS: some dropouts, the controls take some getting used to.

    Superb value
    I use these headphones for just about every outdoor activity you can imagine.
    When fitted correctly they sound amazingly powerful and also cancel out a lot of background noise.
    Very highly recommended!

    PROS: "Normal" USB charging port
    Good range
    Good battery life (4+ hours of near constant play time before they run out)
    Good fit with comfortable tips

    CONS: Track skipping isn't easily controlled from the built in Play/Pause button

    High quality Bluetooth headphones for a bargain
    Just got these this morning so these will be my first impressions.
    Sound quality:
    Sound is amazing and very bassy. I would have to imagine that it is similar to jaybirds or other expensive Bluetooth earbuds.
    The design is interesting and seems pretty solid. There is a blue/red LED that tells you the status of the device.(on, off, or pairing) I have one complaint here however, and that is while I was inspecting them before use the mesh wire that covers where the sound is released was barely connected and was hanging off. I doubt this will be an issue and it was the only flaw in the build I found.
    Performance while running:
    I have yet to run with these, but the flex cable feels like if you tweak it enough it shouldn't have an issue staying in your ear.

    PROS: Sound Quality
    Build quality

    CONS: Only flaw so far was the mesh hanging off.

    Fantastic Bluetooth Earbuds
    I am a big fan of the curated content available on Monoprice! These earbuds have a great feel to them. The rubber cord is thick and feels durable. The earbud housing is durable, and the earbuds fit "like a glove".

    The sound is what sealed the 5-Star rating for me! The highs are crisp, and the lows are impressive! The waterproof feature is a plus, but I would not really bet on it too much. The battery life is great too. I can likely get 4+ hours of play out of them. Truth be told, I have not run them out of juice yet.

    If these were at a bit of a lower price point I would give them 6-Stars! :)

    PROS: Durable construction
    Crisp highs
    Impressive lows
    Battery life is on point

    CONS: The mesh on the earbud is hanging off
    Mic not great from behind and not comfortable in front
