It comes with a black neoprene zipped carrying sport case, stabilizers/fitclips, and several sizes of eargels. It is supposed to come with a charging micro-USB cable, but my set did not come with one. It does not come with a charger. However, you can use any micro-USB cable and charger to charge this headset, and I have a lot lying around from various devices. The charging port is on side of the power/volume module, and has an orange (not black) rubber cover. It took a few hours to charge to full (was not fully charged out of the box). Pairing to my iPhone 6+ was easy after power-up (no security code required).
The fit is nice, but needs a bit of work. The eargels are held in place by the stabilizers. The stock ones (Medium?) were the best fit, the small and large did not fit me. These are comfortable earbuds to use. Coupled with Bluetooth (wireless), this is a decent backup to my current go-to Bluetooth headset for workouts, the or my In-Ear Headphones.
Why a backup? Well, unlike my and my , these Motorol VerveLoop+ bluetooth headset does NOT pair with my iMac or MacBook Pro. The product description states that these can be paired with computers, so not being able to do so is quite disappointing because I use my headphones with my iMac and MBP all the time.
The controls are minimal in function. There are volume up and down buttons. Press both at the same time to change the EQ setting during music playback. Mute a call by pressing and holding the + and – buttons. Reject a call by pressing and holding either + or – button. To issue a Voice Command (ie. Siri), press and hold + or – during idle or music playback mode, then say the command.
The middle button turns the headphones on and off. It is the button to answer and end phone calls. It also the play/pause button when listening to music. Double press the middle button to go to the next track, and triple press it to go to previous track.
The battery life is very good, but not as long as I expected. It lasted an average of about 6 hours of continuous use. This was mixed use, about half hour phone use, the rest is for audio/music. I have yet to see 9.5 hours of “continuous playtime” but I suppose the key description is “up to 9.5 hours.” Having said that, these last longer than my Jabra Sport Pulse (about 5 hours of real-time use).
Comfortable. Secure fit.
Easy to pair with iPhone 6+ and various iPads.

Short battery life (about 60% of max battery advertised)
Sound is lacking on low end
Mic is unimpressive
