If you’re a fan of the tunes while working out, you’re going to love Motorola’s latest sweat-proof S11-HD headphones, which is a band style earphone. Design-wise, the Motorola S11-HD, available at Verizon, has a power button, notification light, mic, a volume rocker and microUSB port (for charging) on the right side, and a call/music control button on the bottom of the left side. The S11-HDs are designed to fit secure, especially when you move a lot.
Charging is pretty speedy. The indicator light glows red while charging and green when it is fully charged up. Five minutes of charging will provide you with about one hour of usage, and fully charged, you can expect around 6-hours of playback and usage.
Each headphone arm rotates about 30 degrees to help fit securely into your ear. They stay in their place well. Additionally, it’s easy to pair up the headphones with various devices, and we found that audio quality and volume levels were really good.
When using the S11-HDs for calls, call recipients reported that the call sounded really crisp and clear. It was also very easy to switch from music to calls. No fumbling around, choosing various buttons. When a call comes in, you’ll hear a ring, the S11-HDs will stop the music, and you can answer the call with the press of the call/music button. The call/music button is pressed once or twice to control the music. If you hold down the call/music button, you can change the equalizer settings.
