Our Opinion

The Bluetooth Headphone market really has to step up their game now if they want to compete with the Motorola SF600. In the end, it's about quality and for under $130, it is a steal. I give it 5 out of 5 stars. If you are in the market for a great headset, give the Motorola SF600 Bluetooth Headphones a try. You will not be disappointed.

Review: Motorola SF600 Bluetooth Stereo Headphones

Since the 1970's people have been seen walking around, headphones on their melons with wires draped across their chests. Since then headphones went from much bigger to tiny and that cycle continues even today. What has changed, is now wireless with the use of Bluetooth. That is where the Motorola SF600 Bluetooth Headphones comes in.

Watch the unboxing video below about the Motorola SF600 Bluetooth Headphones





I have had the opportunity to use the Motorola SF600 Bluetooth Headphones for the past week and in a word... AWESOME. I have used so many Bluetooth headphones in the past 6 years that I have lost count. I have had plenty of issues with all of them, that is until now. My biggest problem that I always ran into was that I never got comfortable with the feeling of something in my ear. The Motorola SF600 is the first of this type that I was able to use for multiple hours in a row with minimal discomfort if any. At one point I forgot that I had them on.

A few of the things that impressed me were as follows.

First is the battery life. Hours of use each day for four days finally killed a full charge.



Second was sound quality. You must first make sure that you choose the right size ear buds (shown below). Once you figure that out, you are golden. I listened to a variety of music, from classical to R&B to rock and jazz. I watched movies, TV, and YouTube videos and the HD sound promised by Motorola shines through. Phone call quality is also crystal clear. Wind and background noise was almost non-existent.



Volume and control buttons are also easy to use. The volume is located just behind the right ear and the multifunction button is located on the top of the same ear. One of the coolest features of the Motorola SF600 Bluetooth Headphones is that when you are listening to music and a phone call comes in, the music stops, and the called ID is announced. As an added bonus, you can control forward, backward, pause and play just by pressing the multifunction button a number of times. The only button on the left side is the power, and that is located behind the left ear.

 
Third was sport usage. Since Motorola made the SF600 out of Kevlar, it is lightweight and very durable. It also contains a Hydrophobic Mesh that allowed me to sweat without loss in sound quality or comfort. I went jogging, danced, and at one point I jumped around my house like a monkey to try and shake the SF600 off my head to no avail.

Trust me I tried it all.



The only problem that I had was that once in a while I like to use a Bluetooth that goes in one ear and because the wire connecting the two ear pieces is only 8 inches, it is not comfortable. The SF600 is clearly not made for that. The effective range is only about 30 feet, but how far do you really need to go from your device?



In the box you will find the headset, charger, carry case, experience guide, instruction manual, and 5 sets of multiple sized ear buds(6 if you include the set that comes on the headset). 




The Bluetooth Headphone market really has to step up their game now if they want to compete with the Motorola SF600. In the end, it's about quality and for under $130, it is a steal. I give it 5 out of 5 stars. If you are in the market for a great headset, give the Motorola SF600 Bluetooth Headphones a try. You will not be disappointed.

These are nice but the $130 price tag is a little steep. Tenqa just released a pair of DJ style Bluetooth headphones in black & white for only $39 with free shipping. They may be worth reviewing.

Hi

I have been threw a couple of Bluetooth headphones myself. My main problem is that i cant get them to be load enough for the most part. I like the music to be load enough so I really cant hear anything else outside or around me. How loud are these in comparison to a standard wired wired headphone??
