Worked ok (not great) for a while, now won't charge
on July 5, 2018
When I bought this in mid-February, it was a little awkward to use and the audio quality was less than expected. I used it almost exclusively in the office to listen to music while working at my desk. I occasionally used it for phone calls, but the other person often reported I was cutting in and out, even though I could hear them with no issues, until I disconnected this earbud from the phone and talked without it.
Around the beginning of June the battery stopped charging - I would connect to the charger, the blue light would come on for a moment then go off. After its battery drained completely, if I removed it from the charger then re-connected it over and over again, I was able to get it to power on almost long enough for it to (loudly) proclaim "battery low" before it lost power. I left it on the charger for a couple of weeks, still won't power on.
- single button for all functions, just depends on how long you hold the button down (I got used to this)
- button click and release are fairly loud when pressed while it's in your ear
- the volume for the voice telling that provides info ("battery high", "battery low", "ready to pair", etc) is not adjustable and is louder than a comfortable listening level (but not louder than you listen to that one song you really like that gets you pumped and have to turn up)
- distance was definitely less than 45 feet, closer to 15; I didn't test out in the middle of the open plains, so perhaps walls, wireless network signals, and other bluetooth signals had a negative impact
