Seems inconsistent since we only have 24 hours a day and if you used the 10 hours, what is left is 14 hours. Out of 14 hours you will still use 8 hours of sleeping. Stop telling lies!

Nobody will listen to music for continuous 10 hours on headphones.
Don't tell stories.

They don't report that it lasts just above 3 hours because it's a cool idea that you don't have to deal with wires.
I'd have to buy two pairs of these if I want it as a daily accessory. Changing to the freshly charged pair, while I put the spent ones into the charging pod. Change again after 3 hours. This will go on for 3 to 4 times during day. I'd have to spend nearly $400 total just so I use this cool thing(s) all day. No wires, but a hassle to keep charging.
My experience with such with built-in tiny battery will degrade eventually within the year. $190 per pair. I strongly advice anyone from getting this.

I don't think it needs to last longer than it does, especially if it means being bigger and heavier.
Then you realize that it runs 3 hours per charge. You have to take them off. Put them to the charging cradle for some 30 minutes or so.
My Sony SBH-52 can run continuous 10 hours music streaming from my phone. I was so impressed with the battery longevity, that I got another so I can just switch to that one usually early evening. It cost me $90 each.
It can also take calls, as a standalone caller unit without wires, speaker phone, read out notifications.
I also has have two SBH-20 for $30 each. Those can give 5 hours of continuous music streaming. I know the IconX has 4gb for music, but I got that covered with my Sony MW-1 ($55) that can house a 32 GB microSD card for music.
I'm impressed with the design concept, however 3 hours per use just does not add up being disrupted when I do work with music on. And at almost $200? Nope.

for people thinking like you the communism was born. also the iCr@p. choices are for people w some brain
I don't see why this very expensive thing is any more practical than buying a similarly priced smartphone and getting an arm strap to use it on your exercises. Plus you can call right away in an emergency.

I can't imagine them sounding good. Why, you might ask. You have to fit a battery, bluetooth module, internal storage, capacitive buttons, sensors. All these parts probably take most of the insides, so what's left for the sound? All that "tech goodness" could've been put into making the earphones sound better. I buy headphones/earphones to listen to music and stuff like that, not to have useless gimmicks that ruin my experience by making awful sound. I've used lots of earphones and in my opinion they all sound awful, especially compared to headphones. Why do you have to bring them any lower? Also, why does the title say they're headphones?
Will buy it, when the price cools down (given the call quality is not crap as Moto Hint), at current price one could buy a very good entry level phone like Moto G4 Plus LOL!
