Zivio Boom Reviewed, Style and Substance

 

Without a doubt, the Zivio Boom headset is one of the best looking bluetooth headsets available in the market. It garnered a lot of attention and envious looks when the unit arrived, from designers to geeks alike. DigitalReviews got to take this sexy...

Review: Zivio Boom

 

Maintaining the balance between small size and superior sound quality is the biggest challenge for manufacturers of Bluetooth headsets. The Zivio Boom takes a new approach to the challenge with the inclusion of a retractable boom mic that can be used...

But how does it perform? For regular use you can use it without the Boom mic wherein it delivers reasonable sound quality. The extended mic fits at the corner of your mouth, thin and unobtrusive, and enables the caller on the other end of the call to...

"Great sound - Bad design"

 

This is the first head set I've used that I'v... 

The boom mic is absolutely wonderful on this headset. This unit has the best sound of any bluetooth headset I've ever used. It is very easy to pair as well. My first unit was DOA and Joby got right on it and replaced it in a very short time

Even though it has 6 earpieces and an ear hook this fairly heavy unit WILL not stay on if I move my head at all. I am very active and the longest I can get the unit to stay on is about 30 seconds, 4 minutes if I'm driving and not moving my head much

Boom feature is nice for when you must talk low. Fit nicely in ear & overall look is extremely unique

None of them lasted longer than 30 days

This is the first head set I've used that I've never had complaints from people I'm calling. I don't have any trouble hearing others either. It has a magnetic button with an ear hook that attaches to the back of the head set. The hook slides through...

Try something less cool that works more reliably.

The custom ear piece and selection of parts makes for a super fit. The boom mic is great. Great battery life

The Bluetooth connection is finicky on 2 different phone HTC touch pro and Touch Pro 2. Can't use it, customer service would not replace it. It sits next to my collection of cool but useless technology

1st one rec'd DOA! 2nd one worked for 2 weeks & the 3rd lasted just under 3 months. My main interest was a BT headset that provided long talk time. 12+ hours is mandatory for my needs.

Simply awful contruction quality

 

Stay away until they improve the quality of the unit's construction.

Wonderful customer service. They have sent me two new units at no charge with free shipping and return postage. Excellent controls and sound. Many fit options with the xceltion of the stick on magnet and earloop, which falls off on a regular basis

Extendable boom mike is very fragile. I have treated it with extreme care on two units. In both instances the boom separated from the housing. On the first unit, the movable earbud mount became completely loose in the housing

Consumer review by:

Excellent, used two part silicone makes perfect ear fit

 

Highly recommend this unit to anyone, I've owned the Jawbone, plantronics, Motorolla, my callers say this is by fare the best, no echo on their end.

Excellent Sound Quality both my end and the callers, With my custom two part silicon ear piece I can hear callers perfectly even in noisy environments

Have to be careful when eating, not to bite the boom mike. ;-)

Consumer review by:

Finally, a bluetooth headset I can use... and love.

 

I've always hated bluetooth headsets ... As a broadcaster,. I'm used to the comfort and quality of a molded earpiece and a microphone I can get close to in noisy environments. Most wirless headsets are a poor fit and give mediocre performance,...

Great mic, even in noisy places. VERY comfortable. Terrific volume and sound quality. Highly customizable, with an ingenious magnetic ear loop

Product Specifications

The Zivio Boom is the stylish headset you'll actually want to wear. A flexible extending boom mic adjusts to your face shape and improves quality for your listener. Zivio's removable ear support fits perfectly every time. But Zivio is much more than a pretty face - its insides impress your inner geek with Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR and Multipoint, supporting HFP 1.5 and has 10 full hours of talk time - that's 300 in standby mode. It's just the thing for those pick-up-the-kids-meet-a-client-hit-the-car-wash-types of days.
