I had some strong words about these, but I took a breath and decided to tell you about my experience. The firsts pair had about a 10 ft (or less) range before it started to drop. Then I noticed that even when I just put my phone in my front pants pocket, I get drops and skips. I called JayBird and then arranged for me to ship back the first pair and then sent me a new pair. New par is here but I now have the exact same problems. Also, two different people refused to talk to me on the phone using these because they say it sounds like I"m in a distant tin can. I'm going to try calling JayBird again, but I've resigned to chalking this one up to 100 bucks down the drain.
