Nokia HDB-4 Boom Over the Ear Headset


This is a replacement headset for one from Nokia that fit a previous phone. By far the best wired-headset I have tried. Then think about how little it costs and it becomes a best buy.. The unit works well under a motorcycle helmet. I would not say you...

Quality, comfort, price.

Nokia HDB-4 Boom Over the Ear Headset


Ok, so maybe I don't have the most current cell phone technology (I have a Noika 3200). My state recently enacted a law requiring cell phones be "hands free" while driving, so I purchased the HDB-4 Boom Over the Ear Headset to comply with the law.It...

Comfort and ease of use.

Difficult to hear without pressing it against your ear and the off switch is difficult to feel.

Nokia HDB-4 Boom Over the Ear Headset


I love this headset, and bought the exact same one once my original one wore out (after 1 year or so). People tell me that they can understand me well, and I can hear very well. Much preferable to the dangling mic if you ask me, and more comfortable...

Cheap if bought from small surplus sellers (or are they knock off copies? Oh well!), fits ear well, very handy to have "send/off" button on headset

occasionally the connection is suspect, but I think this has to do with the phone design and wear + tear

Nokia HDB-4 Boom Over the Ear Headset


This headset fits comfortably over the ear. So far, the sound quality has been satisfactory. The only thing I don't care for is how difficult it is to plug in my Nokia 6170 phone.

The Nokia HDB-4 fits comfortably over the ear. Good sound quality.

It's difficult to plug in.

Nokia HDB-4 Boom Over the Ear Headset


I purchased this after losing the original boom mic that came with my Nokia 6610. I can barely tell I am wearing the headset. The cord is a good practical length and stays connected well but will release if it snags on something. The sound quality is...

Cord Length. Sound Quality. Answer/Hangup button on boom.

Sensitive mic picks up background noise

Nokia HDB-4 Boom Over the Ear Headset


Nokia's ear set Broke within the second week I owned it. Not happy at all with this purchase. I will not waist anymore money on such a weak item. I do not recommend this item to anyone!

Good sound quality.

Very fragile.

I have been using this style headset for my Nokia phones for the past 5 years. It's speaker portion is open to both sides allowing it to work in either ear. It has an easily accessible button on the bottom of the boom allowing you to answer and end...

Nokia HDB-4 Boom Earset


I received exactly what I ordered, received it promptly and paid a reasonable price for it. Unfortunately, it really does not perform well - it can only be used on one ear and even then the caller cannot be heard well. If I were to do it over, I would...
