Good deal on this headphones. They are a little tight on side and sound is decent. The mic tends to pick up a lot of background noise. The headset isn't sweat resistant; I went through 6 of these (brand new in package from RMAs) because the buttons ended up malfunctioning/wouldnt power on from sweat. My one year warranty is up, and the back button is acting up.
The new S11 Flex HD just came out about a month ago and seems to fix the issues with improvements in other areas; however, it will cost you $110 on amazon.
I am sure there are higher quality headphones out there at higher prices. There maybe better quality ones at this price but i wanted one at under $50 that had ear buds, I cant use normal headphones because of coli-flower...
The sound level on this headphone is not great, but its decent what made me get another pair is that its so rigid I couldnt do any lifts with this lying down. This also made explosive and/or quick movements also difficult so shadow boxing or many circuit type/explosive exercises are also out. That pretty much killed it for me.
i would recommend the Plantronics BackBeat 903+ Headset over this anyday for about the same price point. Sound level is much louder and its much more flexible. bought mine for about $35 off a deal site over a year ago. Its starting to fall apart now, but I've used it probably on average for 10 hours a week for the past year, so I feel I more than got my moneys worth
And i get drenched sometimes when working out and never had a problem with the plantronics ones.

but I have to admit my focus was more on bluetooth headphones than a headset. As a headset there was a bit more background noise than i would wish for but i dont remember how they compare to the ops headset
which i admit was by far the best "headset" but was terrible as a stereo headphones for working out. Just bounced everywhere and constantly got in the way. But if your only focus is for a casual at most walk and talk headset I would recommend this type
