Sennheiser VMX Office

 

Yes, you look like a knob wearing a Bluetooth headset all the time, but at least you'll be a comfortable knob with the VMX Office.

Sennheiser VMX Office Bluetooth headsets are for the real movers and shakers of the fast-paced business world. It easily interfaces between VoIP lines in PCs, mobile office phones and mobile phones all from one headset. The included base station has a...

unable to get to work

 

If it works, great. If not. you've spent a lot of money for nothing. Not what would expect for such a great company.

reported as excellent and versatile - including for voice recognition (Dragon)

However, unable to get base/headset to work with computer, or headset to be picked up by any Bluetooth device. Manual not much assistance - pictures only, without labels and for set-ups with phones. Customer Service resulted in only put downs/no help

Not a good value

 

It's slick, looks great, and does work wonderfully, but it crapped out so soon that it's not worth $200.

Works great when it works; freedom to walk around and talk. Pairs easily

Battery lost ability to hold a charge in a year. They will not look at it without my paying $129. At this price, it should last a few years without having to shell out more than half the cost of a new unit. My 13 year old Plantronics (yeah, non-wireles

Consumer review by:

Very bad call quality, cannot use it!

 

I extensively use wireless headsets with my BlackBerry mobile phones. Used Pro Plantronics brand in the past, felt minor pain on my ear, so decided to switch to Sennheiser thinking they would come up with a better product that wont cause pain. So...

Long battery life, would be useful if voice quality was good

Terrible call quality on this headset. Connects well to blackberry via bluetooth, but other side always mentions eco in the call and they can't hear me well. Waste of money, old type of connection to recharge and pc sync. Veerry disappointed with the S

Consumer review by:

Don't buy it!

 

Nice design, fits well

The one you are calling will experience such noise that he or she does not want to continue the conversation. I had mine replaced by the manufacturer, but replacement had same problem. They replaced for another model, which has bad fit

Consumer review by:

Great sound quality for user..less so for those called.

 

Until those I call complain that "echo" makes it very difficult or unpleasant to talk to me, I'll continue to use it...especially while driving (which is why I bought a bluetooth headset).

Slick design, easy pairing and operation, comfortable, reasonable charge time

Those I have called have noticed an echo of their voice, possibly caused by outward facing speaker sound being picked up by mic. Turning down volume on VX100 helps some, but then user may have trouble hearing in noisy environments

Consumer review by:

Unsurpassed. Forget all other headsets.

 

The way you can turn on and answer a call and turn off/hang up by opening and closing the headset means the battery only runs out every few weeks. why havent the others done this

Dunno, guess if it was free

Consumer review by:

Extremely bad and unreliable

 

Maybe this works with other phones. I tried 2 of them, as I exchanged it thinking it was a fawlty product. No difference with both headsets. Also, the wall-mount charger was missing from both packages that I got. Not only is the item unreliable on all...

It looks great, although large and bulky, very slick design. Packaging looks fantastic. Easy to use, if it worked

Just does NOT work with iPhone 3Gs. It sometimes connects for a few seconds, then drops off completely. BT connection very unreliable. Audio is crackly. Also parts missing in the original (un-opened) pack from the shop JB-HIFI. Awful product

Consumer review by:

Excellent, but doesn't work with the iPhone

 

Sometimes it would work but some times, even though the iPhone showed it connected and chosen (between speaker, iPhone and VMX 100), There was no sound. Voice Mail was worse. It might work for one VM and then as I try to listen to a second, it would be...

It's comfortable, it has excellent audio quality both ways, good battery life

It doesn't work properly with the iPhone. About half the time I could receive calls properly, but sometimes not. Making calls and listening to Voice Mail was so frustrating that I wanted to scream

Product Specifications

The VMX 100 is the first Bluetooth headset designed with revolutionary VoiceMax dual microphone technology. VoiceMax employs a unique directional system using two microphones and advanced digital signal processing to distinguish speech from other noises. Distracting sounds such as wind, noise from traffic or machinery, or the murmur of a crowd are effectively eliminated for clearer, more easily understood conversations. The advanced features of the VMX 100 enhance speech understanding for the person wearing it, as well as the party on the other end of the line. Just as its dual microphone technology makes it easier for the voice of the user to be understood, the VoiceMax system also intelligently filters background noises from incoming calls, enabling users to better hear what is being said to them.
