DROID Branding Comes to Headphones Too, S10-HD Bluetooth by Motorola

Are we now taking this DROID-branding thing a little too far, or is it just me?  We saw the CommandOne Bluetooth headset grab a hold of our favorite brand name a couple of weeks ago, but it doesn’t look like Motorola plans on stopping there.  From the picture above, it appears as if they are ready to re-introduce their S10-HD Bluetooth headphones with some special packaging.  Normally priced at $79, it looks like you’ll be dropping an extra $20 for this special edition version.  Are we blaming that sweet DROID armband for the price jump, or because they are “sweat proof”?  Yes, that was sarcasm.

Cheers ___!

    do you know when they will be released? i have the s9 model and i totally dig them. I am a runner and would like to try this newer version out. I’ve stopped by a couple of verizon stores and no one knows what the heck i’m talking about.

    they are so uncomfortable! you can handle them from more than 20mins

    • janksy

      if they fit like the s9′s do, they are pretty comfortable. i’ve worn them in 2 half marathons, and coutless 5k’s and 10k’s

         I have seen a lot of complaints about how uncomfortable they are, but I never had any problems with them.

    I must admit that I find following market ” hip ” trends like branding hugely appalling . However the work on the Droid branded command one is superb. I like the gizmo technology such as the MOTO speak function on the command one. The voice Droid on startup is again worth applauding . Perhaps not conservative enough for some folk but it just a cool addition to an awesome idea ( Droid ) . I’ve owned and still own many Bluetooth headsets so indeed functionality to me is paramount. So if a headset has functionality and design in the forefront why not add a little sugar on top. Droid branding for sake of branding IS stupid but the added extras are well worth the Droid branding . One might feel they are made for each other as complimentary as peanutbutter and jelly . Yum . So point I will be giving this stereo headset a whirl hopping to be surprised by an exclamation of ” Droid! ” on startup. Peace.

    I won’t get them. I got the same style of bluetooth headphones by Rocketfish and they’re uncomfortable as hell.

    • CivilDroid

      There is a world of difference between rocketfish and moto headphones. Motos are MUCH better

  • Ericatomars06

    If headphones are to much does that mean I have to return my custom DROID outfit? lol

    I did a post reviewing the s10-hd’s not to long ago, and they ended up being my most used pair of headphones for media and for conference calls.

    You trade some fidelity for a whole lot of convenienceespecially when on the go

    I imagine these are the same, but a different color.

    Is the bootloader unlocked on these? :-)

      Now THAT’S funny!! But back to that actual headset, I have had a pair of these for a few years now and they do work pretty well, but certainly are NOT worth an extra $20 just because they now have “Droid” in the name. I’m sure they will still sound just the same as before! Check some of your local stores’ discount/clearance areas and you might even find an old pair for a really low price.

      • janksy

        you can find them on the motorola website for $79. this droid version costs more because it comes with an armband, i think

    I’ve read a few reviews on these s-10 hd’s , are heard they are horrible. I haven’t gotten a pair for myself though. I did have the generation before (s-9) and went through 5 pair from sweat. I canned the last pair and went with jaybird gear’s sports band.

    • http://jeftek.com Jef

      The s10s rescessed grates and better seals deem to make it sweat proof. No issues so far from daily use here.

    Um, Motorola. May I have a moment of your time. We, the Droid people, are not sheep like some Apple folk. Now I like Apple and Android. But no way in hell am I going to buy high priced, basic shit just because you slap DROID on it and make it VZW colors. Sorry. Same way with Apple products. Remember. We the Droid people, are smarter than that! (Well some of us)

    P.S. Just stop it! Focus on putting out a phone that can reinstate the success of the first Droid and Droid X.

    If it’s anything like the non-Droid branded headphones by Moto, I’ll pass. I owned a pair of the others, and they were terrible for making calls. The Bluetooth audio also broke up often.

    • http://jeftek.com Jef

      Not to be a total rabid fanboy for these headsets but the s10s have been great for con calls. I use it at home all the time for that specific use.

      I also use them for when I start a call in my cars built in Bluetooth, get to my destination while still on the call and throw these on to walk to the building from the parking lot and everything is very clear.

      I hear the s9s were subpar though.

  • Jim Dandy

    I bought these 3 years ago :( Avoid!!

  • Mr.Joe

    The coloring on these are so much better then the actual s10-HD.

  • MOTOX

    Hmmm pretty stupid though it says its a special edition droid armband with it….

  • chris

    sowhate the difference between these droid stereo bluetooth headset and my stereo bluetooth thats not droid branded? do these bluetooth headsets have extra features that make it better? because my stereo bluetooth headset functions just like any other

    • Mr.Joe

      Yeah, and my motorola razr functions just like my droid.

    This is not the Droid I’m looking for.

  • Anonymous

    Will it make me coffee?

    • Lakerzz

      If I’m not mistaken, for now it will just be able to make a frapichino. Coffee making will be introduced in a future update.

    They should just keep the Droid branding to phones.

    And now that I think about it, I think they applied the Droid branding to the Samsung 4G LTE smartphone because, they knew it was the weaker of the four phones being launched, so adding Droid to the name, it will sell more.

    Droid branding has become like the iPhone, people want the phone, strictly because it’s a Droid. Maybe their hoping that same strategy will apply to accessories.
