Setup and Usage
The first thing you are going to want to do is charge up the earbuds. It comes with a microUSB cable that you can plug into your PC or any USB charger. When you first plug the earbuds in a red LED will light up to let you know they are charging, once charging is complete a the LED will turn off.
Pairing the SportclipAIR’s with your device is much like any other Bluetooth device. Long press the Scosche button on the in-line controller until the LEDs are blinking red and blue. This will put the earbuds in pairing mode. From here they will show up on your device and you just select them to pair. Once paired you are good to go!
If you are not used to earbuds that wrap around your ears the SportclipAIR’s will be a little weird at first. The earbuds are easy enough to get in your ears and the soft hook is shapeable so you can fit it around your ear how you see fit. You are going to want to wrap the cable around your neck so it is out of the way. With the ear tips that came with preinstalled with the earbuds I was able to get a great fit in my ears.
I have been using the SportclipAIR’s for a few weeks not only as my main set of earbuds, but also as the earbuds I use at the gym and when I’m active. The biggest question to answer is do they stay in your ears? After playing basketball, running, and going to the gym the earbuds did not fall out once! It is safe to say if you are being active they are not going to fall out. It is also nice to not have to deal with a cable or having to have my mobile device on me at all times. The in-line controls work quite well and made it easy to adjust volume and pause music.
The SportclipAIR’s have a very good overall sound. Definitely better than the earbuds that will come with your mobile device. I do have to say that these are not the best sounding earbuds I have experienced lately, but the sound is not really the selling point here. That does not mean these sound bad at all, still better than a good amount of earbuds out there. I made a few phone calls using the in-line microphone. Because of its location I was able to communicate with people, but they did have a hard time hearing me.
