LG HBM-235

 

Cheap Bluetooth headsets do exist, but bear in mind that you're not going to get a top-of-the-line product for the price. For example, the LG HBM-235 is as basic as Bluetooth headsets come these days, with no A2DP streaming, and without a fancy design....

The LG HBM-235 is a simple, no-nonsense Bluetooth headset with a very tactile multifunction call button. It offers multipoint and has decent audio quality for the price.

The HBM-235 doesn't offer different earbud sizes, the hook feels rather cheap, and the headset doesn't perform well in very noisy or windy conditions.

Even though the LG HBM-235 doesn't have all the bells and whistles of more expensive headsets, it offers acceptable audio quality considering its bargain-basement price.

"Review on USED product: Unacceptable sound quality."

 

Worked more like a mic than a bluetooth headset.

Loud

Uncomfortable ear bud.

"Good reception; not good for small ears"

 

This headset is not for people with small ears. I find it very painful to have this in my ear for long. In addition, I have broken several ear hooks, and the replacements I've found online are even flimsier.

good range

flimsy ear hooks

"great simple head set for the money"

 

this is a very good bluetooth headset if you just want something simple with very good sound quality for both the user and the person on the other end of the phone. i got the purple one for my fiancée for her birthday and she loves it.

color, design, sound quality, battery life.

none that i can think of considering what you are paying for it.

"VERY VALUABLE BLUETOOTH WITH SOME...UNCONFIRMED PROBLEM"

 

Overall this is very good device consider the price very low. And I think this is only device that current offer bluetooth 3.0. However the design are not conferable for everyone and power meter and connection meter could bring some confuse to some of...

Is most update version of bluetooth ver.3.0. 12-15 hour talk time and 1 weeks standby. Multiply device connection....and 20$ rebate that makes this headset almost free.

If you look careful on cnet video(up). you will notice left and right side of muti bottom are putty sharp.

"Best Headset Without Spending Too Much Money"

 

This is the best headset you can buy for the money. LG sent us some of these to try and more if we wanted to recommend to customers. I couldn't stop talking customers' ears off about these. Every customer I've supplied these to has loved them from day...

This headset is comfortable, stylish, and sleek.

Audio quality could be better, but I've known PLENTY of headsets that have great quality but hurt the ears after only a few hours of use.

Want To Sound like you have a Potato in your mouth?

 

skip this and go with GOgroove BlueBar

works quick out of the box

If you want to sound like yourself don't get this one ; your voice will sound like theres a bunch of edibles in it ; If you rather sound like you do, on a phone, then get this one ; GOgroove BlueBar Clip-On Wireless Bluetooth ; MUCH BETTER

Consumer review by:

Won't stay on/in my ear

 

Newegg shipped using UPS to USPS. Avoid selecting this shipping option (standard). It is far from the quick, safe delivery we've come to expect from Newegg.

Good sound

1. Flimsy plastic behind-the-ear retainer doesn't stay put ; 2. Earpiece a touch too big for my ear ; 3. Voice feedback -- if it's not in your ear, you don't hear the confirmations
