Consumer review by: flarkin (newegg.com)

Hmmm, could be better

 

I would not buy these again. I paid twice as much for the first set and would rather pay that again than get the current quality they are making now.

Good sound, small foot print. Compact

I bought these same headsets a year and a half ago and had to replace them. The new ones a cheesy. Quality went way down hill. Charging is terrible. Charged the unit for install time as stated by manufacturer and battery died after 3 hours. Not it...

Stylish and comfortable stereo for mpc player use. Very simple to use.

Good range, great stereo sound, easy to get set up and working ; Comfortable phones

Forget using the mic ; battery life could be better ; volume should go higher

Good Headset for the price

 

This is good for the money and I like it better than my Motorola because it connects easier and charges from USB.

Easy to connect. Buttons work well with a Treo 700W. Sound Quality is good. USB charging is a brilliant feature.

Range is very short. I have to have my phone on the same side of my body as the ear piece. Have to talk fairly loud to be heard on it.

Headphones good, microphone unacceptable

 

I was willing to look like a cyborg with the blue (bluetooth status) light shining from my headphones. With the microphone plugged in, I was even willing to look like a cyborg window clerk at McDonalds. I understand that all bluetooth devices must have...

I really wanted this product to be successful. I wanted to pack my Treo 650's new 2 Gb SD card with music. I wanted to listen to music while driving, and be able to take calls handsfree. I wanted to avoid the headphone/microphone jack issue that so...

Bottom line, the microphone transmission quality killed it ; Unfortunately, the microphone was almost unintelligable on the other end. Voice was monitone and sounded like it was muddy and underwater. It would occassionally click out, which made me...

What?

 

It amazes me how many headsets cannot be heard when you're in a noisy environment, like in a car. Even with the windows up, I have a hard time hearing people with the volume on maximum. Every time I turn it on I have to max out the volume to hear...

Good battery life ; Lightweight ; Compact size ; Decent comfort

Distractingly bright LED ; Not the greatest sound quality ; TOO QUIET FOR THE CAR ; No noise cancellation, poor mic quality
