What People Are Saying

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great but stop working out of nowhere Ive been having them for a while and really like them. The only reason why im not giving a 5 star is because the buttons all of a sudden stopped working and the earphones wont turn off. If i wan to skip a song or up/down the volume i have to do it through my phone. Would really love if i could get them replaced but i lost my receipt and i no longer have the original packaging, it might be an ussue . The battery hasn’t completely gone down but i hope once it does im still able to charge them im not sure if itll let me as it says on the instructions they need to be turned off to be able to charge.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I had brought these about 7 months ago. I loved them. Great for workouts, hands free driving and even when I'm doing work around the house and need my hands. My only problem with the headphones is that....they stopped working. I've tried everything rebooted them, charged them...nothing. I went back to the store to see if they have them. They don't carry them anymore. If I can repair them I would, but I don't no where to buy them or get them repaired.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from It’s been only 2 months! I bought these two months ago and was thrilled about their performance. However, all of a sudden they won’t charge and won’t turn on. They were never drenched in water/sweat, and I take good care of my stuff. Ugh...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tried them all! This is hands down the best Bluetooth Fitness Earphone out. I use mine with Comply Foam Sports Core or TSX 200 Foam Tips and I only hear my music. This allowed me to intensely focus and have some of the best workouts I've had in months. There is no signal drop, It's very simple to pair with your choice device, No issues with sweat resistance... (just remember to close the charging port flap properly). Of the three sound signatures I find the Normal mode to be best to my sound preferences. The Sound quality is stellar as it uses the APT-X Bluetooth codec. Its almost as good as a wired headphone but most people won't be able to tell the difference. The battery life and sheer comfort of the HBS-S80 gets me through my workout with ease. I would hope that the next iteration of the HBS-S80 has APT-X HD and LDAC codecs, IP68 Dust/Water Resistance, and 12 hour battery life.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Solid I bought these a while back. Got obsessed with finding the perfect headphones for gym and running. Iv tried many different pair. powerbeats wireless 2. Altec Lansing. Plantronics backbeat fit. And several other cheap ones. These were very solid. I wish lg would make more this style. I put mine through a lot. Wore in the shower tub etc. good sound and good fit. These are close to perfect as Iv come across. They are durable, but sadly mine but the dust after 6 months or so of hard use. if they made them ipx7 they’d really last. Moved the controls to the ear buds to balance the weight and or just did that and made them true wireless these would be a “force” to be reckoned with. This is how much I liked these headphones I just ordered 2 pair off amazon, because sadly they don’t seem to be selling them in stores like Walmart or from Best Buy at all. Have a feeling they won’t have them much longer which is sad

My headset when plugged in shows a light purple light , then a blue light in the space of a few seconds, but won't turn on. Any way other than the power button to turn it on?

Asked by: AlexDavis
We regret the inconvenience you have experienced with this Bluetooth Headset. Once the device shows the Blue indicator light, it should have a full battery charge. If the device will not activate, once the charging cable has been disconnected, then there may be a problem with the headset. Please contact our Wireless Customer Interactive Center at 800-793-8896.

I have lost my charger and I am having difficulties finding a new one. Do you seek just the charger?

Asked by: Emwally
We appreciate your interest in this headset. The charging cable is a Micro USB cable. A replacement cable can be obtained through your local electronics store. It is suggested to take the headset to be certain that the cable matches the design of the charging port.
