"Great sound - Bad design"

The boom mic is absolutely wonderful on this headset. This unit has the best sound of any bluetooth headset I've ever used. It is very easy to pair as well. My first unit was DOA and Joby got right on it and replaced it in a very short time

Even though it has 6 earpieces and an ear hook this fairly heavy unit WILL not stay on if I move my head at all. I am very active and the longest I can get the unit to stay on is about 30 seconds, 4 minutes if I'm driving and not moving my head much

"Will NEVER buy another one!"

 

1st one rec'd DOA! 2nd one worked for 2 week... 

Boom feature is nice for when you must talk low. Fit nicely in ear & overall look is extremely unique

None of them lasted longer than 30 days

This is the first head set I've used that I've never had complaints from people I'm calling. I don't have any trouble hearing others either. It has a magnetic button with an ear hook that attaches to the back of the head set. The hook slides through...

Try something less cool that works more reliably.

The custom ear piece and selection of parts makes for a super fit. The boom mic is great. Great battery life

The Bluetooth connection is finicky on 2 different phone HTC touch pro and Touch Pro 2. Can't use it, customer service would not replace it. It sits next to my collection of cool but useless technology

1st one rec'd DOA! 2nd one worked for 2 weeks & the 3rd lasted just under 3 months. My main interest was a BT headset that provided long talk time. 12+ hours is mandatory for my needs.

Simply awful contruction quality

 

Stay away until they improve the quality of the unit's construction.

Wonderful customer service. They have sent me two new units at no charge with free shipping and return postage. Excellent controls and sound. Many fit options with the xceltion of the stick on magnet and earloop, which falls off on a regular basis

Extendable boom mike is very fragile. I have treated it with extreme care on two units. In both instances the boom separated from the housing. On the first unit, the movable earbud mount became completely loose in the housing

Excellent, used two part silicone makes perfect ear fit

 

Highly recommend this unit to anyone, I've owned the Jawbone, plantronics, Motorolla, my callers say this is by fare the best, no echo on their end.

Excellent Sound Quality both my end and the callers, With my custom two part silicon ear piece I can hear callers perfectly even in noisy environments

Have to be careful when eating, not to bite the boom mike. ;-)

Finally, a bluetooth headset I can use... and love.

 

I've always hated bluetooth headsets ... As a broadcaster,. I'm used to the comfort and quality of a molded earpiece and a microphone I can get close to in noisy environments. Most wirless headsets are a poor fit and give mediocre performance,...

Great mic, even in noisy places. VERY comfortable. Terrific volume and sound quality. Highly customizable, with an ingenious magnetic ear loop

It ain't free

FINALLY!!!

 

The Zivio is my 4th and last bluetooth headset that I will buy!!!

Great headset, long battery life (10 hours), great noise cancelation, excellent sound quality (both what you hear and what the caller hears), easy to use buttons, the best headset I've tried so far. I'm done looking - thanks Zivio

the only complaint I have - none of the earpieces that came with were a comfortable fit and the extendable boom mic is very fragile so you have to be very careful with it (respect the boom)

I fell in love with the design of the headset, but was skeptical about initial reviews. I finally broke down, and I bought one. I have had numerous bluetooth headsets from the first generation (Ericsson HBH-10) which I special ordered from Europe...

Incredible battery life, great volume, excellent noise cancellation

Slightly tinny sound quality
