Good - for the price

Anonymous, Newegg
18 September 2006
  • Summary: Other than the occassional problems with the other party hearing me, and the LED, this has been a surprise for the price. Had it been more expensive, I would have ranked it lower, however, it far exceeded my expectations.
  • Pros: This headset is lightweight, and fits nicely. I was able to adjust the ear hook to fit so that I hardly know it is on. It is very comfortable to wear. The controls are intuitive, and I like the jog wheel versus other types of BT headsets I have tried. I found control to be very intuitive and easy...
  • Cons: The LED is too bright. It slows down traffic at night when I am wearing it in the car. I can't understand why such a bright LED was needed. It spoils an otherwise no-frills design. I have had some complaints regarding clarity from people I am calling. I know it is not a weak cell signal, but I ha...

Nice. Inexpensive too!

  • Summary: It continues to remain "on" if you connect it to the charger Doesn't come with a USB power cord, which would be really nice for use with laptops.
  • Pros: Easy to set up. Has many features. Very little static considering it's price. Overall a very good value. I am able to move a decent distance from the phone with little noticeable affect on the sound quality.
  • Cons: The beltclip doesn't hold on to your belt very well, although would be fine for hooking it to your shirt somewhere.

Very nice headset

Anonymous, Newegg
14 August 2006
  • Summary: I was nervous about buying this. Yeah the price is very good, but there were mixed reviews and I wasn't sure it would work with my phone (Samsung MM-A940). I was surprised that this headset had such a high rating considering its price. I decided to go for it.
  • Pros: The price. The sound quality on both ends (especially the headset's end) is great. It works great with voice dial. It pairs extremely fast and is ready practically the second you turn it on. The windblocking technology works pretty well. The style of this headset is much better than the others I'...
  • Cons: Two problems I ran in to was that I was unable to mute the headset or reject a call (without my phone being open). I confirmed this as a problem with the phone because I tested it with an LG CU500 and it worked. There is a light that flashes constantly no matter what, but it's not really bright u...

Good for the price

Daville L., Newegg
13 August 2006
  • Summary: This is my first blue-tooth. Cant really compare performance to others but it works good for me at the moment.
  • Pros: I bought this for my Motoralla L2, the pairing was easy enough. The sound quality is excellent depending on the distance you are from your phone. I dont have a problem with battery life with it. Fits comfortably.
  • Cons: I cant go very far from my phone and get good reception but with what its cost thats to be expected. Rather than that its a good buy.

  • Cons: Nothing, I am absolutely satisfied with my purchase!

Don't use with a Treo 650

Michael S., Newegg
26 July 2006
  • Summary: It sets up fine, it says it connects when you press the button but it won't pick-up a call. Their TS had me do numerous delete and soft resets adds on my phone and the same result - so now I have to RMA through them at my shipping expense.
  • Pros: Price, size, weight
  • Cons: Doesn't work with the Treo 650 despite them saying it did.

GOOD BUY

benjamin p., Newegg
28 June 2006
  • Summary: unlike the plantronics explorer 320 this had a stronger frequency. its microphone is more open. 15ft is its max from your phone. no bluetooth yet proved to be 30ft. ITS A HELLA OF A GOOD BUY.
  • Pros: THIS IS THE BEST ONE I EVER TRIED. better than the plantronic explorer 320. ok one is that its all reliant on one button. the sound button is located on the top. whats also cool is that its led tells you when the battery is dying. its very clear.. wished it had a add on that makes the speaker go ...
  • Cons: ok the part that hangs on your ears is not heavy duty. it can break. the light on it tends to be bright. no biggie

  • Summary: This has been the only BT headset I have used, so am not sure if the product is bay, or I had incorrect expectations. Also I was surprised that I coludn't listen to music via the bluetooth handset (although this seems to be a problem with all BT headsets, not just this one).
  • Pros: It is cheap, it feels nice to wear, and is a wireless headset (much like all bluetooth headsets).
  • Cons: I had moderate (not excessive) static when using it. The recipient had significantly more static (very obvious, but not un-understandable).
