Pros: Very good sound, iPhone integration,

Cons: supplied ear tips never really fit right. Awareness software isnt prefected.

Great in ear headset. Very happy with the sound qualities and isolation out of the box. The supplied ear tips worked somewhat well but given my odd shaped ears I couldn't get a great fit and the comfort was ok but not great.

(To be honest the jury is still out o the software) Phone calls are crisp and isolation from background noise works better then expected.   Overall very happy with them and use them at least every other day.
