You get what you pay for

Look elsewhere for a BTHS

 

It's easy to set up, comes with a USB cord for charging as well as an adapter for 110 and EU power.

Static so bad you practically have to hold the phone next to the headset.

Go with the Cardo Scala 500. MUCH better!

IOGEAR GBE211 Headset with Bluetooth wireless technology - Retail

 

Lightweight, mostly comfortable fit.

I've had a few complaints about an echo on the line but rarely and randomly.
