IOGEAR GBE201W7C Bluetooth Wireless Earset

 

I had to go through the pairing twice with my computer to get the computer to see the services offered by the headset and connect to it. Once paired, no problems using the headset with SKYPE until 5-20 minutes into a converstaion. Then other party...

inexpensive

other party cannot hear me periodically when using SKYPE

If you can buy it for less than $30, then a good high-tech toy to play with. Otherwise, pay more and get a better one for serious user. Also, try it with other people before put it to serious use. If the other side can hear the annoying radio noise,...

1. Small and cute2. Easy to use (Mine is used with Sony T637)3. Good usable range4. Very clear for the user of it

1. The annoying blue light2. The button response is slow, sometimes makes me confused3. The other user can hear clearly the radio transmition noise

This is a nice product by IO GEAR backed by their award winning tech support.However they still need to improve a lot on quality and also on the battery life as it is still far from real usage.

Sleek Design

Voice Quality

This is an good headset for the price. The battery life is really good. It's small in size and light weight. The set up and synch with my cellphone was quite easy. The sound qaulity is good. So far it's working fine from last 7 weeks. Overall I am...

IOGEAR GBE201W7C Bluetooth Wireless Earset

 

It's a great bluetooth headset in this price range. I'm very satisfied its battery life -- I'm not a heavy headset user, and I only use it when I drive -- It took me 2 weeks to run out first charge.

Light weight and very good battery life

too small

Overall, good for its price. Has good battery life and easy to charge using USB charging cable (very handy). The charger is compatible for 110-240v which will be very useful while travelling...

IOGEAR GBE201W7C Bluetooth Wireless Earset

 

This is a awesome bluetooth for its price range. Very easy to set-up with my cell phone. Battery life is alright with around 4 hours. however, it doesn't fit perfect with my ear.

Great Price for a bluetooth headset

None so Far

IOGEAR GBE201W7C Bluetooth Wireless Earset

 

This headset is used with my Treo 650 and I am very pleased with it. It's faily well built, light weight and for this price, there's really not much to complain about. One thing to note is when the headset is initially being configured with your phone,...

Light weight, good value, easy to use and fits well (in my ear)

Slight delay in connectivity with my Treo when headset is initially turned on

Consumer review by:

IOGEAR GBE201W7C Bluetooth Wireless Earset

 

I used price grabber to compare earpieces and was happy with my purchase. This is one of the smaller, lighter, more comfortable and (when the LED is masked)less obtrusive earpieces. The neck strap allows a easy way to store the earpiece in a handy...

Easy to set up (used with a Sprint Treo 650). USB charger cord is a convenient alternative to the AC adapter. Relatively fast charge time and long talk time. Small, light and confortable

Blinking LED gives a Star Trek appearence (but can be taped over). Although apparently not IOGEAR'S fault, the TREO 650 still can't use voice dialing programs with this and other Bluetooth earpieces
