If you are, a music lover, then having a craze about headphones is nothing new. The market is full of options, and you can buy a headphone from INR 100 to INR1,00,000. But the question is, which one you should buy? Earphones or headphones, choice vary from person to person. If you ask me, then I would opt for over the ear wireless headphones because I hate tangled wires. Recently, I purchased, Motorola Pulse Escape Headphones, and today, I will be reviewing it.
Things that I liked in this headphone
Before this, I had already reviewed BoAt Rockers 400 and Sony WI-300. But, I was not impressed with their packing. However, in the case of Motorola Pulse Escape Headphones, I loved it. The combination of red and white looks awesome.
You will get this headphone packed in a carton. At the front, on the top of this carton, you will see the Motorola Logo.
It looks very impressive. Right next to it, you will have a glance (picture) of the headphones.
You can predict that the design of this headphone is going to be very attractive.
From the photo, you can judge about the flexibility this headphone comes with. On the left-hand side of this photo, you can learn about the 3 key features of this headphone.
10 hours playtime, passive noise isolation, lightweight, and fold-able are three main specialties explained, at this side of the carton.

Now because this headphone is Bluetooth, so at the bottom on the extreme right, you will see Bluetooth’s logo.
I will further explain, how to connect this headphone using your phone’s Bluetooth. In addition, you can connect this headphone through an AUX cable.
On the right side of the (carton) packing, you can learn more about the technical specifications of this headphone. You will find more information about the Bluetooth technology, standby time, the convenience of hands-free calls, and frequency.
For the tech-savvy customer, this piece of information can really help a lot. Just below this information, you will know about the things included in this packing.
In packing, you will find 3 other things besides headphone- USB cable, AUX cable and a quick start guide.
This instruction manual is multilingual, and all the instructions are available in several languages. It is therefore easy to read and understand them.
Through this guidelines manual, you will be able to use your headphone with an ease. Every function is well-explained, and you will get to know the about every button combination of this headphone.
After reading and using these combinations for once or twice, you will be able to perform these without looking at this instruction manual.
Besides, you will find a USB cable in the packing.
This cable is used to charge the headphone’s battery. It is highly recommended to charge your headphone fully before using.
To charge, put the thin edge of the USB cable, in the headphone socket (shown in the photo) and the wider end in the USB point (of a laptop or phone charger). In packing, you will only get a USB cable and not a charger.
AUX cable is the next thing that you will get in the packing.
If during use, your headphone battery dies, you can connect your headphone with the phone using this AUX cable.
To do so, you have to put one end of this cable into your mobile phone’s 3.5mm jack and the other in the headphone socket (as shown in the photo). This way you can use this headphone even when the batteries are over.
Overall, I’m fully satisfied with the packing of Motorola Pulse Escape Headphones.
Let’s talk about the main console of Motorola’s Pulse Escape headphone. Headphone’s main console is on its right ear-cup. You will see 3 buttons just above the ear cup. With these three buttons, you will be able to access each and every function of this headphone. Motorola’s branding has been done on this console, and it looks amazing.
To learn more about these functions, you need to refer to the guidelines given in the instruction manual. With this help, you can understand and use all of these functions.
Under the same ear cup, you will get a USB charging socket, AUX cable socket, inbuilt mic, and a small LED light, which, apart from the headphone’s on or off, blinks when it is reset.
You Can Deal Calls With This Headphone
I really loved this function of Motorola Pulse Escape Headphones. Now, you don’t need to shut your headphone off for answering a call, even if you get one in the middle of the music. You can deal with that call using your headphone’s console.
With the upward button on the right side of the headphones, you can answer, reject, or redial.
To do this, you have to press these buttons in a said combination; sometimes you have to hold the button for a long time, sometimes you just need to press it for once, and sometimes you have to press another button with along with this button.

Let me tell you; the call quality is wonderful. You won’t face any lagging or voice-breaking-experiences while answering calls using this headphone. Furthermore, the headphone range is up to 60 feet.
Ear-cups Are Very Comfortable
The ear-cups of Motorola Pulse Escape Headphones are very comfortable. I liked it very much.
They fit nicely on your ears. I can give full marks to the manufacturing quality.
Even after using these headphones for hours, you won’t feel any pain or heaviness on your ears.
BatteryMotorola Pulse Escape Headphone battery backup is great. Once fully charged, it lasts for at least 8 to 10 hours.
If you do not want any interruption in your music, then you have to always keep in mind that your headphone battery is fully charged. In some cases, you cannot keep checking it by pulling your phone out.
However, if you are using Motorola Pulse Escape Headphones, then you can get this information from the headphone itself.
To do so, you have to press a few buttons in the shown combination.
Like any music system, Motorola Pulse Escape Headphones has an inbuilt equalizer. Now, you can enjoy music in different modes by pressing a few buttons at once.

To do so, you have to press the >+ button in idle mode, and then say your command.
By doing so, Google Siri will be activated on your phone and you will be able to give directions.
Pairing is Very Easy
It’s very easy to connect this headphone to your mobile phone’s Bluetooth. You can do so within a minute or two.
To connect it, you have to press and hold the power button (for 5 to 10 seconds).
Once you do this, the LED will start blinking in blue and red color.
It is a sign that the headphone is reset and is now ready for the Bluetooth connection.
After this, you have to go to the Bluetooth settings of your phone, and you will see “Pulse Escape” under available devices.
This means that the Bluetooth of the phone and headphone are ready for the connection.
As soon as you click on the option of “Pulse Escape” on the phone, you see a message of “pairing.”
This message indicates that the “pairing” is initiated.
Once “pairing” is done, you will get a message saying “connected.”
This means that your Motorola Pulse Escape Headphones and phones are connected to each other.
Things that I did not like at Motorola Pulse Escape Headphones
Very Fragile And Can Break Easily
If you are not good at handling, then you have to be extra careful with these headphones. Motorola Pulse Escape Headphones are very fragile, especially around the clip for folding it. You can end up breaking it because of your slight mishandling.
Although I have not yet faced any such problem, every time I fold it, the does scream out the plastic.
Many people have complained about this part, and the worst thing is, once broken from this part, headphones become a useless piece of plastic. Although this highly depends upon your handling, after buying such an expensive headphone, if it breaks easily due to a slight negligence, then I won’t consider it as a great deal.
Sound Quality is Not That Impressive
Although the sound quality of the Motorola Pulse Escape Headphones is great, if you are a bass lover, then these headphones are going to disappoint you.
In these headphones, you will not get a bass like the boat rockers 400 or Chokoko quantum.
Not for Big Heads or If You Wear Turbans
The headphone’s headband is made of plastic.
Although you can increase the size of this headphone according to the need, yet their length is limited.
Therefore, if you wear turbans, then these headphones are not for you. You can easily break these off.
I am personally happy with Motorola Pulse Escape Headphones. When you buy an expensive headphone, you have 2 major demands. First of all, the headphone’s sound quality should be good, and secondly, it must be durable. As far as the breakage is concerned, it depends on how carefully you handle it. In the case of sound quality, I am not a bass lover, so this headphone is very good for me.
