The Rokit Boost SwageU Bluetooth headphones are designed to be worn around the neck with the earbuds extending from wires.  When not in use, the earbuds are mounted to the neck band and held in place by magnets.  The wires are thin and long enough that you can turn your head freely without annoying resistance.  The neck band is made of a memory flex material that helps you achieve a good fit.  The SwageU was designed for use during a wide range of activities from working out, doing chores around the house, walking, and driving.  Weighing only 1.4 ounces, users generally find the SwageU to be comfortable, but some complain the neck strap moves too much during vertical movement such as sit-ups or jogging.  The SwageU comes in either white or black; in either case, the accents are dark red.  The styling is too loud for my taste, but beauty is in the eye of the beholder.  The SwageU comes with 3 different sizes of ear tips, so you are likely to find one that fits you well.

The Rokit Boost SwageU Bluetooth earbuds have 6 buttons with 3 on each side of the neck band.  The track forward, track backward, and the play/pause buttons are on the right side.  The volume up, volume down, and answer/end call button are on the left side.   The on/off switch and the micro USB charging port are found on the left side.

Features

The SwageU utilizes Bluetooth 4.0 technology and can be connected to up to 2 devices simultaneously.  If you are on a call from one device, and you get another call from the second device, the headphones will notify you with a gentle beep.  The SwageU will automatically go into standby mode to preserve the battery if left on and unused.

The SwageU does not have noise cancellation technology for the microphone.

Performance

Batter life is fair at around 8 hours of talk or music play back time and up to 100 hours of standby time, but your experience will vary depending on how loud you play your music.

Music quality is unremarkable but meets expectations at this price range.  The earbuds fit tightly and seal out environmental noise.  This is great if the noise is annoying or distracting, but you are effectively wearing earplugs.  I would not recommend using the SwageU if you need to be able to hear external sounds in your environment.

Phone calls are loud and clear on both ends, and the wireless range is standard at around 30 feet, but decreases rapidly when walls or other obstacles are between the SwageU and your smartphone.
