The good:
Helps you listen to music when working out.
Lighter than headphones, so you can wear it all day and not feel anything.
Sound quality is decent. Don’t go expecting deep bass and rich treble – it gets the job done.
Overall, manages to look cool and inconspicuous at the same time.
Battery life is really good – lasts me at least a whole day at work.
Plenty of additional features in the Jabra connect app, such as finding the location of the device. Very nifty and useful for the kind of person who tends to leave spectacles lying around.
Magnetic earbuds are super useful – detach earbuds to answer incoming call. Attach earbuds when on call to end the call, or when playing music to stop music.

The bad:
Almost everyone I called using this complained that my voice was distorted too much. I recorded some of these calls and found that the mic is probably too sensitive, causing this trouble. Not sure how this can be fixed, but since my primary requirement was to use this during workouts, it’s no big deal.
The range seems wonky – when there is no obstacle between phone and device, I can walk up to 6m away and still hear music very well. But when I put the phone in my pants pocket while working out, there is stuttering. Repeated attempts to remove the device and add it again have proven useless. Most strange.
The earbuds are kind of annoying to use. Rather than the simple round ones, these are oval shaped, which makes it kind of uncomfortable to wear for longer than a few hours. But listening to music for that long can be damaging to ears, so…

Overall, decent product, probably costs a little more than it should. One extra star just for the app and its additional features.

Crystal clear sound quality for music.
Excellent battery life for long hours if usage.
Connects to 2 devices at the same time.
Nice design and comfortable around the neck.

Uncomfortable in the ears. It hurts if I use for more than an hour if so..
Voice quality is very very bad. Not sure if the noise cancellation is working..
Lot of noise and static is picked up by the mic and callers complain they can’t hear anything until I disconnect and use the phone directly.

I cannot use this while running and sports activities and make phone calls.
