HBS-250

 

Earbuds are a frequent stereo headset style--for example on the Sony Ericsson HBH-IS800 and the Altec Lansing BackBeat 906--but they're not everybody's choice. If you want to avoid inserting doodads in your ears, check out the $80 (as of March 22,...

Inexpensive Comfy padded ear pieces

Awkward and cramped music controls Single size may not fit large ears

Consider the LG HBS-250 if you want a headset whose earpieces sit against your ears--not inside them. You can expect reasonably good audio quality as well, particularly on the music front. But if you're concerned about your image, consider this: One...

LG HBS-250 Stereo Bluetooth Headset

 

Stereo Bluetooth headsets may not be as popular as their mono cousins, but ever since more cell phones have adopted stereo Bluetooth, they're sure to gain more attention. They're also a good choice for working out at the gym, since you'll have fewer...

The LG HBS-250 has a secure fit with good music quality.

The LG HBS-250 may be a little tight on those with larger ears, and call quality is mixed. Also, the controls are skinny and small.

If you want a lightweight stereo Bluetooth headset for when you're on the go, the LG HBS-250 is a good affordable choice despite its quirks.

Works great! Much better than my previous set.

 

Nice piece of hardware overall. Got it for $25 on Woot. It was ABSOLUTELY worth that much. Doesn't have issues with losing connection to the phone when my body is between them like a lot of other sets seem to. Overall, it's not the best headset I've...

Audio quality is GREAT. Worked great with my iPhone when I had one, works great now with my Droid X and MBP. Battery life is phenomenal: both the iPhone and Droid die long before it does. Comfortable and unobtrusive on my ears, while still secure

Couldn't control iPhone playback from it and Droid X doesn't send tones through it (phone end issues, I think). Giant external button gets pressed easily and can produce annoying results: redialed people a lot on iPhone. Can't use while charging

"Breaks quickly - no manufacturer warranty"

 

Mediocre quality sound, poor design and materials that will break with intermittent normal usage. If you need to get warranty repairs, be prepared to pay $40-$100 as stated by LG warranty service.

Easy syncing, fair sound quality

after 3 months of use, the flimsy plastic earpiece broke. The manufacturer blames the user for breaking the earpiece when putting it over their ear. Don't expect the manufacturer to honor the warranty.

portability, both secure on your ears and comfortable, not ugly, functionality is good

setup can be a bit tricky (perhaps for some), small buttons (not that big of a deal), sound quality is awful

Earpiece broke after 3 months of light use.

 

Reasonable Bluetooth reception

Poor quality - Earpiece broke in half after 3 months of very light use. Sent it back to LG for warranty which they refused claiming customer abuse. The thing just fell apart in my hand ; Will think long and hard about buying anything again from LG
