A few years back I decided to make the move from wired stereo headsets to Bluetooth Stereo Headsets. I decided to make the change because I kept damaging the wire or damaging the phone’s headset port. After some research I decided to purchase an older but still popular Motorola S305 Bluetooth Stereo Headset.
Motorola S305 Bluetooth Stereo Headset – Features
The Motorola S305 Bluetooth Stereo Headset comes with two high-quality 30mm speakers that will allow you to listen to both music and along with the built in microphone you can talk on the phone.
While listening to music and you receive a phone call, the music will automatically pause. Then you can press the call button on the side of the headset to accept the incoming call.
If you are worried about battery life on the Motorola S305 Bluetooth Stereo Headset, don’t be. It can handle 6.5 hours of continuous listening to music or talking on the phone. The phone also comes with a micro-USB charger that will help charge your headset in no time at all.
Review: Motorola S305 Bluetooth Stereo Headset
If you do a search for Motorola S305 Bluetooth Stereo Headset on Amazon and check out the reviews it currently has 4 starts out of 5 with over a 1,000 reviews and that’s what sold me on this old pair of headsets.
This headset has been around for years and people are still buying them. I still see a few people wearing these headsets instead of the $100+ Bluetooth headsets that most wear. At $20 to $25 on Amazon you can’t beat that. These are at least name brand with great reviews.
In my opinion, this headset is a great headset for the price. The music is pretty good. Its not the best but they are impressive for their age and design. When I’m working all day I can wear them almost all day before they have to be charged again. If I remember, I can charge them at lunch and when I get back they have enough power to get through the rest of the day.
What I don’t like about them is the feel. They feel cheap and flimsy. They feel like they might just break if you look at them funny. But So far I’ve had mine for years and they haven’t broken yet. I’ve mostly used them at the Gym, working as a landscaper, and jogging. Even with the sweat and the abuse those activities can be on a pair of headsets, they held up and still sound good.
Some reviews complained that the fabric that covers the plastic speaker cover makes their ears feel hotter and I have to agree. But its not that bad and you can easily get use to it.
For me, the issue is the over the ear style. This design can irritate the tops of my ears if I wear them to long. But over time I got use to it and now its not that big of an issue.
Luckily you can find replacement parts on Amazon. Once they arrive, I will install them and review it.
I’ve upgraded to pair of sport Bluetooth ear buds and I’ve been using them for almost a year, but I keep these around as a backup pair or use them when I don’t want to use my other ones. They still work great, the battery is still strong, the standby isn’t so much. I just have to remember to charge them up before heading out. I normally charge them on the go and my car charger can give them almost a full charge in about an hour.
If you are looking for a cheap replacement pair, a backup pair, or just getting into bluetooth headsets, the Motorola S305 Bluetooth Stereo Headset a great pair to have laying around.
