Build Quality: 3.5
1ByOne's Collar Ring Headset has a decent build quality. At a glance you would think it's way too wobbly and cheaply made, but after about 2 weeks of use I would call it flexible. If you happen to drop this you won't have to worry about it breaking because, it will break its own fall. 1ByOne also added 4 magnets to the device which are located in the back of each one of the earphones , as well as at the end of each collar. Buttons are responsive the charger door work to to keep moisture out. I wish the earphone soft piece was more of a spongy material or foam rather than rubbery.
This device features Bluetooth 4.1 which in general should improve on connectivity but, in my experience it was not so. Every time I reconnect my device to my phone I have to trick it into being able to play music through the headset (I either turn off the bluetooth, then back on, or I Restart the Bluetooth headset.). The controls could have been handled a lot better. It has a Power / Pair button on the left side, and a +, -, and play / pause / action button. My issue is when trying to change music tracks you have to hold the button + or - button to change. Problem is to go backwards you have to double click.... This function is impossible to perform due you not being about to double long press.
Its really hard for me to complain about performance when it works so well, once its up and running. I do recommend using a EQ when trying to bring out the best of any headphones. This one is no different. When I started out using them I found the “mids” were too prevalent and “highs” and “lows” were understated. I fixed it using the EQ equipped in Spotify (My music app of choice). The overall audio quality is actually pretty good for its price range. I have no qualms with the battery life either. The box and product descriptions say it has a 10 hour battery life which feels like 30 to me being that I work 10 hour shifts and it last me about 3 work days. It also charges really fast. I timed it today using my Motorola Turbo Charger I managed to charge it in about 45mins. 1ByOne says it is supposed to last 300 stand by hours, now honestly speaking I did not test this but who needs 12 plus days of standby time?
This is an excellent value for what you are getting. You can't really ask for more...

These are currently my favorite bluetooth earbuds that I own. They are inexpensive and work almost as advertised. There are a few pet peeves that I could easily look over. I highly recommend this product.
