it connected with my device easily and has a usb charge and you could hear people pretty clearly

people hated talking to me because apparently the device would send a constant annoying noise to the person on the other end

Headset works, dongle doesn't


it would have gotten 5 eggs but the dongle just up and dieing on me made me take one. if it was something that made it break it would be 5 eggs. for all the people that say this headset isn't loud enough, learn how to mod your phone :P motorola phones...

it's got no wires. the charge lasts a long time. pretty simple setup. works with any bluetooth device and spec. the included dongle allows you to connect any bluetooth device to your computer. range i got was near 70ft with no obstructions and little...

but the dongle died on me. just one day decided it wanted to be an "unknown USB Device" and then after that all XP could do was say it was malfunctioning and needed to be replaced. Haven't tried RMA'ing it or calling motorola about it as the dongle was...

Mic doesn't work


The sound was clear. The earpiece worked great. I heard no static. It worked in the next room as well

The mic is terrible. Everytime I tried to make a call I coud hear them fine but all they could hear was a loud buzzing sound. When I walked into a different room it got even worse

Good Sound, but poor mic


I use for Skype and some lecture recording. For the price, it's a great product.

The sound that you hear is great, good volume and good signal. very comfortable and batery life is amazing. works great with skype

the mic has lots of noise. I guess all the wireless bluetooth headset have one. Conecting to the computer can be a litle frustating sometimes

Amazing Sound


Alright it works great with Skype, but I also use it as my mic device when I create YouTube Videos, stylish way to avoid the old headset. I use a USB extention cord to bring the Bluetooth dongle on top of my PC, makes the sound nearly perfect.

The price is great and well this headset is not just for VOiP

None really
