Decent earpiece


I'm not really a fan of bluetooth headsets, this came free with another purchase so I'm using it. I prefer to use corded stereo earpieces and just wear 1 ear when driving.

Connects to my bluetooth devices, stays on my ear, simple to use, decent speaker quality

Difficult to fit snugly on my ear without pressing the button on it multiple times

The losers at Blackberry designed the 8830 so that A2DP streaming audio will NOT be available by plugging wires into its external earphone jack. It took a while to learn about A2DP audio (Wikipedia), and then buy this earphone (don't waste money on an...

I bought my headset Retail (from the Egg). I would have preferred to save a few bucks getting OEM. I listen to streaming audio (A2DP) at work using this headset, a Blackberry 8830, and the Berrytunes application. The headset's battery lasts "up to 6...

I don't use the headset for phone calls, because my Ma says the audio is less intelligible that the internal microphone on the Blackberry 8830; probably same story with any earphone-sized headset with a tiny hole for its microphone ; The rubber piece...

Vehicle charger NOT included in OEM


Sleek, Lightweight

Advertised as being shipped with a "VEHICLE" charger. When my package arrived I received a micro-usb to standard usb capable adapter/charger. There is no way to plug that into my vehicle, or any other regular car. It only fits into a computer/USB...

Nice Idea, but


If I edit the podcasts first, to increase their volume by 300%, then maybe I'll be able to listen to them at work. Probably more a criticism of the Headset profile rather than this earphone: If you click the shell-button twice, it redials the last...

I don't have a lot of experience using a headset ; This one has Bluetooth Headset and Stereo (A2DP) Profiles. Using with Blackberry 8830 World Edition (which is getting obsolete, with its stingy 64 MB of ram, but don't get me started). Of course, the...

Not" a Hi-Fi earphone. Bud hangs loosely outside of ear. Fidelity improves if you push the bud deeper into your ear canal, but since the whole outer shell functions like a button (for answering the phone, etc), pushing deeper into your ear activates...

Great Buy


Overall I like this headset, I was a bit disappointed that my voice wasn't clearer to other callers but the sound quality on my end was amazing. It seamlessly transitioned from music to calls and though it did pick up some background noise it worked...

Fits well, Great sound quality, Good Battery Life, Beautiful Design

No volume function Keys, Sound on the other end was compressed and was very obvious headset sounding
