Calls last dialed


This redialed at least 75 calls when I did NOT want to do so. Every time it got bumped it recalled last dialed. Sitting on my pocket it recalls when pressed by my glasses ! Nuts.

Good design and efficient

Every time it gets bumped it re-dials the last number. I have had it done at least 11 calls to one number. It drove me Nuts

PLANTRONICS Explorer 330 Bluetooth Headset


When I first ordered the earpiece it came in within 2-3 days. Unfortunately it had a European plug for the bluetooth charger and I live in Western New York so this won't work very well. Called newegg and the customer rep was very nice and helpful. Told...

Comfortable fit and easy to use. Good sound level and have not heard anyone complain about background noise when I'm talking on it

Starts to break up at short ranges. If I have phone in left pocket and earpiece in right ear and turn my head away from the phone it gets static. When I tried to turn up the volume once I hung up on my call. Maybe have the on/off switch and the volume...

Not bad .. but ...


I was going to see about an RMA but let's just say Newegg took care of me. Now ... let me just say this item seems to be a very good buy. I think mine just quit working because maybe the voltages were off or something to do with the UK power adapter....

Well, when it worked ... Crystal clear quality, good range, functional, as loud/quiet as you want, and it goes a long way in a single charge. This is probably the best deal here .. BUT

I was sent a unit with a UK charger as well as did some of the other guys/gals below. I'm not sure whether Plantronics sent Newegg a batch of the wrong item or what, but this issue needs to be corrected ASAP. I ended up going and buying an ELEVEN...

Blue light was sometimes annoyingly bright in a dark room.

Easy phone pairing, clear incoming volume ; Good buy for it's price

Lasted for just barely a year until I needed to replace it. The over-the-ear piece broke in a couple different places and it wouldn't charge properly after about a year ; If phone and the earpiece were on opposite sides of your body, or ear piece was...

hope the replacement works and if it didn't i will through it in the trash and not bother paying another 8 - 12 $ for shipping it back again.

it turned on and flashed as long as the charger connected to it. dead when i release the plug

DOA... requested RMA which was approved BUT i end up paying half the cost of this item to ship it back and who know whats next, i think i should of just through it away so if they will charge me for the shipping it back i will end up paying twice as...

No beep for TXT message


Clear and it works for days when it comes to my needs

The only problem I have with the earpiece is that when a text message comes in, all you hear is the ear piece go active like you were on a call. This happens for about 2 seconds and unless your in a completely silent room, you cannot hear it. The last...
