    Well, after having these headphones for a week...

    I love them.

    Today, I listened to music for about 4 hours. Kept the phone in my pocket the entire time, never took it out. The connection never dropped once that whole time. And I was in a crowded cafe' with lots of other laptops, electronics, etc. And the sound quality, while not audiophile-level, sounded better than most headphones you could get for $25.

    I use Tunewiki as my player, and the headset controls work perfectly. In fact, a couple times I went to the restroom and when I did, I hit pause on headset. Turned if off, put the headphones in my bag, went to the restroom.

    And when I came back to the table, I turned back on the headphones, put them on, hit play, and the music came back. Never took out the phone. And if a song I didn't like came on, I could hit the forward skip button to move past it.

    And even, better, when I got a phone call, the music automatically stopped and it rang the headset. I hit the button on the headset to answer the call, and when I was done and hit the button again to end the call, the music automatically started up again.

    My wife said the headset on the headphones wasn't very good at isolating my voice from the background noise, which would make sense because the mic is up by your ear and doesn't have any noise canceling. But I could hear her fine....so that's good enough for me. :)

    All in all, very happy with the headphones. Especially at the price I paid.

    Weird how it works for some (stock music player and Pandora) and not others. Mine works with both - if it didn't I'd have sent it back right away! These are both my primary use for the earphones. Well, also listening to uTube on train commutes! ;) cuskit

    My s305s also don't do anything when I press the Play/Pause or track forward/back buttons. They beep but they don't do anything.

    What music player are you using? Is everything fine with the Droid speaker?

    Are you sure you have bluetooth enabled, and that it confirms paired connection?

    Same here - both the stock music player and Pandora. I'm thinking he may not have turned on bluetooth. Or has not paired up a connection. Waiting for a reply. mike

    Yes, they are paired. On the Droid: "Motorola s305 connected to phone and media audio."

    Music plays fine through the headset. When I take a call the music pauses as it should, and when I hang up it resumes. Volume buttons work. Media control buttons don't work at all.

    This is with the stock Music app, so I tried it with Pandora and got the same thing. No workee.

    Okay, I just got off of Live Chat with Motorola CS (a really nice service, actually).
    They agree that the control buttons should work with the Droid and they are escalating to the next level. They will get back to me.

    Chargers

    Hey guys, the difference in Amps isn't vital. The voltage is what matters. the charger for the headphones has an output of 5.0V. any more than that can be damaging to the headphones. any less just takes longer to charge. Don't quote me on this though. I'm only a freshman IT major. To completely avoid any damage to your electronics, you should just charge the device with the charger that came with it.
