Perfect for what i wanted – listening to music in the gym. No wires – complete freedom and not bad tone.
Easy to worksounds goodvery comfortable and once you fit them they dont need adjustmentthe inner ear fittin could be better though.
Have since bought a second pair for my husband. He uses them all the time on his commute to work.
No problems except when very cold – uncomfortable if you need to wear a cap.

I read mixed reviews on these but they were the only ones in my price range that did what i wanted so i took the plunge. The description is spot on, they are lightweight, fold easily away and have a good battery lifespan (they say about 8 hours and i have to admit i’ve been charging them every few trips to the gym so only tested them for about 4-5 hours). The sound is not as good as the wired ones they replaced, but then these were in ear ones with extra bass boost, the avantronics definitely sound better than the majority of in ear headsets and definately better than the iphone oem. They are perfect for the gym. A few reviewers mention the fit to the ear & the ear buds provided. I have had no problem with these, but did spend the majority of the first gym session getting them adjusted to be just right. Since then i don’t have to touch them at all. Range- this is a weird one- if i have my phone in my trouser pocket on the opposite side to the receiver (right earpiece) then the sound will cut out- but it warns you of this in the instructions. When i put my phone down to do free-weights and is more or less line of sight, i can wander 10-20+ feet without signal loss.
I never leave home without them. I use them for running and also just as my hands free phone. Sound quality is good, light weight, reliable and easy to use.
This is a very good piece of kit for the price. The sound quality is not brilliant for listening to music but it’s certainly not bad – good and loud. Call ability is perfect and connect-ability with iphone4 is very good. The only draw back for me was the quality of the silicone earbuds that came with it. They are not very well made and as a result felt uncomfortable in my ear, regardless of which size i used (they come with large or small size). I was constantly removing them to scratch my inner ear – eventually i had to remove them and replace them with generic foam earpads – this resulted in a slightly decreased volume but has made the earphones more comfortable to wear. For a little more money better quality ear pieces would have really improved this product.

I was not expecting a lot from them. I was wrong, perfect for running outside. They are in my top 5 buys for 2014.
Avantronics stereo bluetooth headphones – joggerworking excellent and a good price. I can recommend the product to other runners.
Support profiles: Headset, Handsfree, A2DP, AVRCP
Does what it says on the tin. Great product for the price. Only reason for giving 4 stars is the headphone evry now & again drop sound for a second other than that excellent.
These are a great buythe sound quality isn’t going to blow you away, but it certainly does enough to warrant the tiny asking price. They were a doddle to pair with my iphone 4s. They allow you to control volume track etc from the headphones themselves and answer phone calls. The battary lasts for ages and they don’t take long to charge. The range of them is pretty good too. I manage to walk a good 8-10 meters away from my phone before i start loosing connectivity. I have no issues with the signal fading in and out when jogging with them either. They are super light too, you’ll hardly notice them. They’d get 5* id the sound wasn’t quite so flat/tinny.
The pair i have are faulty but when they were working.
Operation range: Class 2, 10 meters
If you’re a serious/serial exerciser like me and you’re thinking of getting rid of your pesky wires then this is the product for you. I spent ages looking at the reviews of various bluetooth headsets as i was worried they would end up falling off when i ran. These headphones pair easily with my iphone4 and the sound quality is really good in my opinion. They come with 2 different size ear inserts and i find the smallest pair fit snuggly in my ear and do not come out. If you’re worried about constantly re-adjusting your earphones whilst out running or during any other exercise then you needn’t worry with these. I do a lot of fartlek training (fast-slow interval training) and the earphones do not move then or when training at the gym, hill running or shaking my head up and down in an 80’s heavy metal style. The only issue i have is that my ear gets a tiny bit sore after 1/2 hour as the inserts are quite snug but i’d far rather have that then them constantly falling out or needing adjusting. There is some loss of connection sometimes but it’s pretty infrequent and short and at the end of the day it is bluetooth, not wired technology we’re talking about here. Despite this i am never going back to wires and for 20 odd quid you can’t go wrong really, i would have paid more in fact. I hope this review helps make up your mind if you’re not sure about buying this product.
Pros:won’t fall offgreat noiseconnects easily to my devicescons:too snug and really start to hurt after wearing for 20-30 minutes.
I have had 3 of this, they are good production, for the quality, size, price. I had problem with the last i bought, i sent back, and received an other one, with the same problems. I hope that i was only unlucky and that avantronics will fix the problems.
Great sound and fit around your head. The battery really last for long hours and it also works perfectly when working out in the rain. The problem is the earbuds: bad quality and they get loose very quickly – can’t even stay in the headphones, just fall everywhere.
Battery: rechargeable lithium battery
I’ve had those headphones for 3 years now, and have been running outdoors with them. The are comfortable to wear and the rain doesn’t seem to affect them at all. The battery is still pretty strong — i charge the headphones every couple of weeks. The bluetooth connection is flawless, never had any problems with it.
I read the complaints about the ear buds falling off before i purchased, and since it appeared to be the only serious complaint, i figured i’d be more careful than those people. And i paid extra attention, nonetheless, a week or three later, i lost one pulling the headphones out of my pocket. Unfortunately, even if you are paying attention and know exactly where and when, they may not be easy to spot amongst grass. In light of the other comments and the fact that i’d only lost some comfort, volume, and quality, i wrote the problem off as knowing what i was getting into. After all, they’re still usable. Recently i noticed a new, updated model of the headphones had been released and out of interest in an improved version decided to test their support: the manufacturer, via their own website. The full text of the exchange is included. ——————————————————-“would it be possible, please, for you to send some replacement earbuds for the avantalk jogger?. Both sets have fallen off and are lost. I understand this isa common problem for the product.
Phone: sony xperia stest: 10k runfit: i found the rubber in ear pieces useless and used the headset without them, stayed in place without any movement. Comfort: ok for the first 30minutes but then began to dig into my ear but this was not too uncomfortable (would be better with foam covers). The headset is also very light and with no wires makes running easier, not getting tangled up all of the time. Sound: absolutely fine for what it is designed for. Using while exercisingfunctions: being able to adjust the volume and skip tracks by touching my `ear’ is great, means i don’t miss a stride trying to fumble for my phone.
Good sound and long charge – 6hrs.
