This product works fine. I would have preferred the answer control being on the headset instead of the cord.

Great Product


Great Product for good value. Comes with different ear pieces. Problem I had with Bluetooth devices were expensive pieces that were not loud enough. I can turn the volume down when I use this. Good reception even with slight background noise. Never...
