Best in price range..

 

The instructions dont have much in them...but its a bluetooth, its not rocket science to pair one of these up. I guess some of these people want a bunch of jibbajabba in their instructions that they dont even understand to make them feel they are...

Very clear on both ends of the call ; Easy connection to phone ; Pretty comfy on my ear ; small,med, large ear pieces to change out ; Low charge time untill fully charged

The specs say 3 hour talk time, and this is the lowest on the market, however i used it for 1hr, 30min, 45min, 20min,1.5hr on one charge and the charge still isnt dead yet. So i guess thats not a real con? They should have included a piece for the dock...

Pretty decent bluetooth

 

The price was great for a blue tooth of this quality

Occassionally get an echo. The pairing instructions weren't that great. The charge is not is not good at all. Sometimes I have difficulties getting the gel part in my ear

Consumer review by:

Easy to use

 

Using this with my iPhone 3GS and it works without a hitch. Using the iPhone's voice activation is just as easy with the headset. Good clarity on both ends of the line

Haven't experienced any yet

cant be beat

 

A must buy

easy connect, fast shipping, very very loud, call clarity is very good no echo

cuts out if you get more than 10 feet away from hand set.......suppose to be 33ft for bluetooth

Consumer review by:

Good value, reasonable sound quality

 

5 net of rebate, it is definitely worth the money. with free shipping.

Good sound quality in and out. Buttons easy to use. Paired without any problem with my Blackberry 8830

Manual is not sufficient. No instruction on how to attach the earhook. I almost broke the earpiece when trying to do so

Consumer review by:

Great Item

 

I've used a couple of Motorola headsets at around this price range and a Plantronics Voyager 510 (which costs more at around $35-$40) and so far this is the best headset I've used under $30. Also, this unit is rumored to have been made by Plantronics...

Great value especially since I paid $6+Shipping after MIR. Good sound from both the receiver and speaker end of the headset. Looks great IMO. Comes in a charging/docking case that uses a micro USB connector. Comes with 3 ear buds and a wired over ear...

Mine seems to have an annoying hiss sound when I'm calling if the volume on the headset is set too high. The instructions are a bit lacking. It didn't show how the buds lock into place into the headset, as a result I lost one ear bud and the over ear...
