Excellent Product


I purchased an attractive pink one to go with my new Samsung Instinct and it's lovely. I've had no problems hearing calls and vice versa. I forgot I had it in my ear today until I put my sunglasses on and felt it there. Plantronics 330 is THAT...

Easy to use, comfortable, attractive

A bit bulky. Have to buy car charger/case seperately

inexpensive and comfortable fit


This is a excellent value for the price.

A very comfortable fit into my ear. Easy to use and a reversible ear loop for either ear

Not good in windy environment

This bluetooth earpiece is awful - too much static


It's not the connection or my cell because when I take it off of of the plantronics 330, they can hear clearly again. It also does not do this on my bluetooth car speaker that goes on the visor. it's this stupid earpiece and I bought it from Verizon,...

stays in ear although that ensures I can hear the static better

There's static when I speak, but the worst part is when the other person speaks. I don't hear the static, but it's awful for them. Everyone has just wanted to get off the phone because it's too distracting

The worst I have one can ever hear me


I owned a logitech before I misplaced it. I never had anyone ever comment on this bluetooth. Most people were ever aware that I was even on a bluetooth device. This piece of junk, everyone is telling me that I am breaking up and they can't hear me. A...

design and fit

worthless people are always complaining they can't hear me I am breaking up

Great headset


well i upgraded from the 320 and i'm glad i did. Plantronics fixed all the bugs that where in the 320 but they changed the way in which the headset charges which i feel that the should have kept it the original way. Other then that it's a great headset

Everything about it is wonderful

not turning off when i plug it in

so good, and so bad..


i love this design, it fits my ear perfect, thought it would be the last one i would ever buy, i was wrong.. it has a nice tight cumffy port that fits down in your ear so its loud. ive worn for a couple of hours,and it dosent make your ear sore. but...

perfect fit, very comfortable, loud speaker

horrible static, Very poor reception

Plantronics Explorer 330 Bluetooth Headset


I use a Motorola V3 Razr phone, and this headset rocks! It was simple to 'pair-up' with my phone, very comfortable to wear, and the ear-piece design provides excellent clarity due to its noise isolation design. The microphone operates so well, that I...

Comfortable to wear, fits snug, good clarity of listener, and I sound better as well. The 'one' button toggle switch is built sturdy enough to avoid accidental activation of the headset

Plantronics Explorer 330 Bluetooth Headset


I guess you get what you pay for. Pairing was relatively easy, but I have to do it repeatedly. I'll use it on a call, then on my next call I have to re-pair it with the phone. It's also difficult to tell when it's going to work and when it's not. I...


Loses pairing with phone, unpredictable functionality

Look for something else


The item was purchased from Best Buy only three weeks ago and I have been unable to connect with the headset for the past two or three days. As a result, I missed a couple calls I thought would connect through the headset device. I tried removing it...

Small, lightweight, inexpensive

Lost connection if only 5 ft away from cell; experienced static with only being 2 ft away; died after 3 weeks of use
