They're all a pain in the neck.
The S10s weigh a ton (I have a pair at home that I don't use). The S9s are great. Except they die after 6-months to a year. I've tried other brands and have been disappointed too and have gone back to using wired headphones.
i don't really notice the weight on my motorola head set. i only use it for jogging. the one things for me though is that i wear glasses and it doesn't fit well (both the glasses and head set when combined). I've used it while wearing contacts and it was fine.
Are you sure that you have an S10 and not the S9? I find that the back of the S10s hit against my neck and put strain on the top of the ear. Their newest model is even worse.
i have the s10. have yet to try another model. i was lucky as it was gifted to me by someone who happened to have an extra one. i don't think i would have picked one up and have been happy with wired listening devices...
sound quality is like beat's by Dre.
I bought the Jaybird Securefits - died after one month. I'm in the RMA process right now. Sound is decent, fit is flexible, the wire could be a little longer but the controls are tiny.
...Which means that all you'll hear is the bass, even when listening to classical music.
I've never used wireless earbuds before, but I'd probably go for anything Sennheiser if need would be.
Well unless classical music has a lot of bass then yea I could see the issue, but you've also got "audio settings" to adjust to how you want to listen to music. I recall the "classical" setting as being one of the options, but I'd rather have bass available than not.
I use these:
It can occasionally be a bit annoying if you're using them casually with your back against a chair/wall/whatever, and you become really aware of a stiff wire pressing against your neck, but honestly they're the best earphones I have (GEOAT?).
I bought them so I could listen to music when I go running (excuse me, "jogging," before someone lectures me on semantics), but I also use them around the home or on the train/bus. I never realised how much more convenient it would be to listen with earphones without wires, but being able to get up from my chair when listening to music on my laptop without unhooking myself for instance, is pretty cool.
Also, if you hold down the vol+/- buttons, you can skip tracks forward/back. Pretty handy, and it works with my itunes on my Mac and my Samsung Galaxy music app as well.
They need to be recharged fairly often though*. Then again, so do smartphones, and I imagine we've all gotten used to that by now.
*And your ears stick out something awful, but I personally can live with that.
