Bad designed blue tooth

 

Newegg should take it off their shelves or discount it never sell it at their normal price again.

It is small and light.

I got this Bluetooth for Christmas after a friend told me about it. I bought the wrong one he had the 644 and not the 640E which is an older model. This Bluetooth was built in 2007 according to Plantonics the maker of the headset. They could not...

Not 15 hour talk time.

 

The specifications point out 15 hours talk time. They say nothing about needing in between recharges. I'm an upset customer. This wording is very deceptive. When you say 15 hours of talk time it means 15 hours of talk time not. It's not five hours with...

Light small no need for ear loop.

The specs say up to 15 hours talk time. The box says up to 5 hours talk time increasing to 15 with AAA charger. If it's using the charger it's NOT 15 hours. You can't talk 15 hours straight without charging it.

Great headset, battery charger great

 

Battery life is great, AAA battery in the headset base recharges headset when docked, further extending battery life.

Gel ear piece does take getting use to; without using the behind ear clip accessory - often feel like I might just drop the headset without even noticing.

Best I've tried

 

Two ways to charge it, A/C and the pen adapter that uses a AAA battery.

None so far.

Works for me

 

I pair this with a BlackBerry Pearl and it has been working great for me. I don't have the thing in my ear all day long and basically just turn it on when I get in the car. So, my battery life comment may be due to lack of use. It stays in my car and...

Good sound quality, long battery life, no need for ear loop (at least for my ear), AAA charging deal in addition to normal AC charger.

Button response time seems slow at times. Gel ear inserts can take some getting used to.

Consumer review by:

Not Worth It

 

The clip charger, comfort.

No vibration feature, even though it says so on the box.

Consumer review by:

Mediocre

 

I paired this up with Sanyo Katana. For a product that gets so many things right, yet the sound quality is sorely disappointing. Even while driving in a car with windows up and radio off, background noise for the person on the other side is intrusive...

Size, weight, in-ear fit, battery life, charging options, easy to operate

sound quality

Consumer review by:

PLANTRONICS IS IN ORBIT WITH THIS ONE !

 

So light you'll hardly notice it's there.

Ear buds could be metal and latch better, battery life can ALWAYS be a good thing.

Consumer review by:

Would definitely recommend

 

My wife had been using this one for a while and convinced me to try it in place of my Motorola 700 and I'm glad I did, it's superior in every way.

Comfortable, good battery life, excellent sound quality, versatile charging options

Earpiece takes some getting used to, earpieces can come off easily
