One of the best bluetooth headsets

 

Would recommend this product as a decent bluetooth headset, good quality for its price

Easy to pair, no fuss, decent battery life

can be quite uncomfortable after long hours of continuous usage, sound quality is just average, call button is quite hard to press when answering a call

Pairs with 9 Devices - Is a decent headset for price.

 

I like this headset and the bass is really not too bad. Again, it's not high-fi sound but it is decent and 80% of listeners who are not audio geeks will not mind the sound these headphones produce. Tested the audio of a phone conversation in my...

This unit is very functional. I have not tried to pair it with windows yet ; Works well with Blackberry and our LG phones ; Controls are easy to learn for average users. Earpads soft, do not over squeeze, do not get painful during long runs

Sound is fair but not fantastic. Bass is adequate. Bass is not well controlled due to open ear design of the ear pads. However, this is OK for me since I like to hear cars coming while running and will gladly sacrifice some bass for safety

Poor bit and bad audio quality

 

I will admit i am an audiophile, but the sound quality from these headphones are bad for almost any scenario, whether it be audio, movies, or phone calls. Definitely not at all what i expected from this price point. The default apple ipod earbuds are...

Tthe wireless is nice, and the controls on the headset are convenient ; battery life is very good

The headphones fit my head very loosly, to the point where is i looked down they would move of completly fall off my head ; Also the sound quality is just outright bad. Extremely tinny, and very crackely. The mid-tones are the worst of which
