clear , worked well with iphone, had good range.


Worked very well.I bought the new version (ML 10) based on my experience of owning the 240 for over 2 years.

Had good talk time.. worked better than I expected. Great value. Beeps when moving out of range of phone... 35-50 ft

noise canceling could be better... wind noise was more noticeable than others I've had

A good value


Good value, good function, easy to wear, easy to use.

Good sound, ample volume. Wears well, stays put and comfortable. No problems with hookup

No down side as I could tell. Maybe not as nice looking as some but I'm a minimalist

Clear audio! Not to big. Fits securely on ear.


Bluetooth headsets can be a serious problem for those of us with big elephant like ears! They have a nasty tendency to stick way out, misalign with the ear canal making the audio weak and you have to consequently turn up the volume all the way to hear...

Fits flat against face and securely! Superb audio and loudness. Extremely simple to use. I can wear it all day and not have to readjust it

Some chaffing of the ear until you get used to the ear speaker arrangement

Habla Ingles?


Irritates me so bad I may just return it

Don't Know of any yet

Mine came with its instruction booklet all in Spanish. How fun for me ; I know I can go download the English one at the website I'm sure even if it is a bit of an unexpected hassle but still, this is really an idiotic thing to not have an English one
