It is easy to use


Price is right as well

Easy to connect to your phone and it charges quickly as well. Has a large area that you can walk away from the phone and still be connected

Can't find anything wrong with it

Very good for price


It has been very dependable and got it for about 11 bucks so it was a true steal

The plastic that goes around your hear doesn't seem to be strong and i could see it breaking in time, however it is more comfortable than others

Comfy Bluetooth


very, very, very comfortable around the ear. I have worn glasses and ear pieces all my life and for something that cushions a bit around the ear and to still be of good use is rare. Volume quality, even on low setting, is great

No cons so far. Paired very well with my blackberry immediately

LG Bluetooth Headset


Newegg provided awesome service, in all dealings I have had with them!

Excellent voice and sound quality

The plastic loop was somewhat flumsey

Not so great


Connected easily to my phone

I could hear great but everyone said they had a hard time hearing me. It also kept dropping the bluetooh connection and picking it back up. I have an old plantronics and it works better

Does what it should


I use mine on My PS3, no compaints really, I play a lot of FPS on surround, so if there's an explosion or something behind me, everyone can hear it xmitting over the mic. But, for the price it really can't be beat.

Good clarity, good receive sound, good range (probably dependant upon your device as well)

Comfort, not the best, wirey type ear support can dig into your skin. Wouldn't use it in a noisy environment

LG HBM 230 not working


Product does not work at all. Charged for more than 2 hours (many times) and the headset does not come up. no startup tone no shutdown tone after following the manual procedures.. Requested for RMA.. Will be resending.. Waste of money and time..

Newegg: Prompt delivery from newegg ; Product : Waste of time

Product does not work at all just out of the box ; Unnecessary time waste and pain
