Motorola Stream Sport True Wireless and Splash Proof Stereo Earbud Headphone – Small, fiddly to position properly, decent sound quality.

Quite comfortable to wear and i like the red and black design. The case looks good and it’s nice to be able to charge the earbuds directly through the case, takes anything up to 4 hours for a total charge, and there’s an led indicator to show full charge. It’s fiddly taking the loops off to fit the earbuds back into the case though and i find that annoying. In general the sound quality is ok with plenty of bass and a distinct treble. The fit is comfortable and i haven’t had any major problems with them slipping out of my ears but; the controls are fiddly; three tiny buttons on each side. If you have long finger nails or large hands you’ll struggle. Plenty of instructions included and i suppose one of the best functions was pairing the buds with my phone because it was simple and quick. Splash/dust proof to some degree if you want to get out and about and around 2 hours of playing time once fully charged or 6 hours if you use the chargeable case.

It seems i liked these a bit more than most other reviewers. I really appreciate and use these whilst using the gym or engaged in out door exercise/walking. I don’t really like wearing wired headphones because the cable is often too short and restrictive and i don’t like wearing one of those phone holders around the upper arm because i find them uncomfortable and they sometimes slip unless very tight. These wireless bluetooth eye pieces are an excellent alternative. They are easy to charge with a usb cable and case which are included, and the battery life, although it could be longer, is ok for a gym workout or a reasonable walk. Once you have the hang of switching them on/off and recharging they are quite convenient to use. The sound quality isn’t fantastic, but it’s passable. It is a little bit ‘tinny’ with a high treble and low bass range, but it’s ok for the purpose. I don’t find interference or crackling to occur with any frequency. I don’t have any of the trouble around the fitting that others report.

The earphones seem fine and are waterproof but the case feels a bit flimsy and it is not always easy to seat the ear buds to connect to the charging contacts. They are water proof so can be used out running and in the gym but the ear hooks are essential. These can be used with or without the ear hooks. If using them for sport i would recommend using the ear hooks as they fall out very easily otherwise. These are wireless and pick up sound from my phone and tablet very easily. No messing about they just paired and have worked ever since. Here are the specifications for the Motorola Stream Sport True Wireless and Splash Proof Stereo Earbud Headphone:

Having needed a replacement set of earbuds since one of jabra elite buds decided to go walkabout ( one downside to owning such little, but expensive & handy bits of tech . ) the motorola stream sport true wireless set came along at just the right time – or so i thought. Unboxing reveals a cheap white plastic tray containing multi language instructions sheet, charging case & usb lead, carry bag, spare ear hangers & alternative size silicon ends for your earspairing: instructions state to fully charge before use – so after 1hr all the charging lights went out and i could pair them with my phone. I took the chance to pair them with my laptop at the same time – both easy & quick – just how it should be. On subsequent use, they paired with my phone on start up. Buttons: buttons ( 3x on each bud ) are small. To be expected on such a small item, but anyone with bigger than average hands may struggle – or those without finger nails. Fit: i tried them without ear hangers and using the largest of the silicon ends – all good – except the most comfortable fit and best sound was obtained in what looked like 180 degrees opposite to the way their use is intended. Sound is distinctly treble heavy.

I have found the earbuds very comfortable and very good sound quality especially for the price. The only downside is that i don’t think there are any supported apps for checking how much battery use is left when using the earbuds. When i’m not using them, i just leave them on charge anyway. Overall, i am very happy with the product.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Small, fiddly to position properly, decent sound quality.
  • Not for me unless i’m sitting still very still
  • Sound is fine but poor battery life and call quality let them down.

  1. 2.0 out of 5 stars Good battery life says:
    Using these for cycling and day-to-day use they were great, with a slight let down in how sensitive the microphone is to external noise. The battery life i found was brilliant, getting an easy 4 to 5 charges from the case and upto 3 hours solid use from the earphones on a single charge. Alas the right earpiece snapped in two when unclipping the hook – currently in contact with binatone support.

    I’m not sure if the problem is me and the shape of my ears but without the red overear bits they keep falling out.

        Felt very uncomfortable to wear with poor battery life. Sound quality wasn’t anything to write home about either and they cut out regularly. I’ve binned these and have replaced with apple air pods, far more expensive but then these were cheap for a reason.

      Works well & no issues fitting into my ear. I haven’t used the ear attachment.

  4. 4.0 out of 5 stars Actually not that bad says:
    I would recommend these to people due to them being so inexpensive and looking, actually, quite attractive. The only downside i have with them is that when i sweat a lot it seems to slip out of my ear. Other than that i’m actually quite pleased with these. To anyone who said they’ve slipped out of their ears try changing the size of the ear cups – even mine stay in my ears on a medium cup and i have a huge head and large ears.

    Uncomfortable, painful and poor connectivity. The buttons and the functions were inconsistent in their functionality and awful charge as far as bluetooth headphones are considered.

        My review is pretty much like the otheres. They are not a good fit in fact i would go as far to say they are downright uncomfortable. They hurt my ears so much that i can not wear them. The fact that everyone has different curves and bumps in their ears perhaps the material the ear pieces needs to be given a bit more thought. The sound for me was okay but as i can’t wear them that is neither here nor there.
