Motorola Mobility announces S11-FLEX HD wireless headphones

Motorola Mobility is continuing its excellence in accessories with today’s announcement of new wireless headphones. They’re called the S11-FLEX HD, and its name comes from the fact that it has a flexible outer-band, an adjustable inner-band, and rotating/telescoping ear cups to fit the heads of anyone who doesn’t quite fit that “standard” mold.

These wireless cans have 150 feet of range, and more features include dedicated volume controls, equalizer features, quick 5-15 minute charge times, and more. Motorola says these have “better-than-wired HD sound,” and while we’re sure a few of you audiophiles would argue with that assessment we can’t say for sure whether or not their claims are legit.

Best Buy will be the exclusive retailer of these headphones once they launch October 28th, and Motorola will also host them on its site.

The asking price will be $130, and while you can find some really nice wired headphones in that range it might be worth checking out to see if Motorola’s set can live up to the company’s claims without needing to be tied down to your device. Read on for full press details.

Motorola Mobility Introduces First “Custom Fit” Wireless Stereo Headphones Offering Five Points of Adjustability

S11-FLEX HD Delivers Flexible Fit and Rock-Solid Sound

Sept. 21, 2012

LIBERTYVILLE, Ill. – Sept. 20, 2012 – A fit made for you, a sound all its own. The new Motorola S11-FLEX HD wireless stereo headphones deliver HD audio and feature five adjustment points to create a super-customized fit. Made with you in mind, these headphones will stay snug while delivering pulse-pounding sound during your most rigorous workouts. S11-FLEX HD will be available beginning Oct. 28, 2012 at Best Buy and online at Motorola.com and Best Buy.com for $129.99.

The first of its kind, S11-FLEX HD has a flexible outer band, adjustable inner band, and telescoping and rotating ear pieces which let you adjust your headphones so they feel lightweight, balanced and ready for even the most intense workouts. And thanks to protective seals and moisture-repelling mesh, sweat stays out and music stays on. Did we mention it’s wireless? Whether you’re working out or walking to work, you’ll never worry about losing your sound with slipping ear buds or a yanked cord again. The S11-FLEX HD headphones can stream music up to 150 feet from your smartphone or music player so you can do a circuit at the gym, clean the house or work in the yard without having a music player hugging your hip.

“It’s a custom-fit world with fashion, furniture and even food being created to fit the unique needs of every individual – we decided technology shouldn’t be any different,” said Dickon Isaacs, Design Director, Consumer Experience Design, Motorola Mobility. “That’s why we built upon our popular S9 and S10 series to create an amazing headset that can be tailored and custom fit just for you.”

The pulse-pounding audio from the S11-FLEX HD will blow you away. Advanced acoustic technology delivers crystal clear highs and body-thumping bass to keep you grooving whether you’re at a packed gym, running through a noisy downtown or on a quiet trail run. Plus, with customizable equalizer settings, you get to decide how to listen to your music. Pump up the bass, choose virtual surround sound, or go for a more balanced setting. The multi-function button on the headset makes choosing your settings easy and the sound will beat even your favorite wired headphones.

“S11-FLEX HD delivers the kind of sound you’d only expect from a wired headset – high quality, crystal clear audio — with the ability to adjust the fit and customize the sound for a personalized experience that no other product delivers and without the wires,” said Cedric Welch, Senior Director, Companion Products, Motorola Mobility.

 

S11-FLEX HD works just as hard to keep you connected as it does to keep you jamming during a workout. Perfect for a hands-free commute, the dual high-performance mics deliver top-of-the line noise cancellation for crystal-clear sounding calls that other headsets simply can’t offer.

Additional features:

 

  • Dedicated music and volume controls for easy adjustments
  • Multiple ear cushion models in various sizes to maximize fit and sound
  • A quick five-minute charge fuels a full-hour workout with music
  • A 15-minute charge delivers your favorite workout tracks for up to three hours
  • Universal compatibility with devices from all major brands.

    Might have to check these out.

    Vmoda vibrators or these? both $130. I can’t decide

  • ChrisKenison

    150 ft? I wonder in what conditions this actually works. I’m a landscaper and HATE having my phone in my pocket and my headset never seem to work past 10 feet (especially out in the open). I wonder if these would be any better? Thoughts?

  • ant-roid

    Unless it has a lifetime sweat warranty , its a no go. My last Motorola headset died after rigorous cardio. Looking into the jaybird sports band tho.

    • iwave

      It’s not just rigorous cardio that causes Motorola headsets to fail, every Motorola product I’ve owned has stopped working or broken within a few months. Their bluetooth headphones sound great, they just don’t last very long.

      • CalypsoArt

        And every Motorola product I’ve owned still works. Personal experience is just that, unless it becomes common among a significient percentage of users.

      • Pkmmte

        My wireless MotoRCKR headphones are still in perfect condition after more than 1 year of frequent usage.

    • Tommy Thompson

      Why would you want something clunky like that on your head while doing cardio? Why not the Freedoms? I have those, they are the best BT headphones I have had so far.

      • ant-roid

        Do they fall out of your ears, let’s say if you were jumping rope? The freedom sprints look pretty cool, but I figured the sports band is a lil cheaper and I won’t have to worry about them falling out my ear.

        • Tommy Thompson

          Hasn’t fallen out once

    Hope they’ve improved the battery life…it’s terrible especially in Minnesota if you leave it in the car during cold weather…dies in 24 hrs.

  • Don

    Went through 3 pair of there similar model. They might be water resistant but sure are not sweat resistant. Only use them in cool weather now.
