Decent BT

Patrick K., Newegg
8 October 2014
  • Pros: Long battery life. I would use it all through a ten hour shift with bass boost on and it would just be getting to "Red" battery status. Good range. Comfortable. After having them in for a few minutes I forget they're there.
  • Cons: Sound quality is good, but bass is lacking. With bass boost on, some songs sounds messy and overblown cause I assume the phones are as robust as others. Sometimes the headset cuts out due to interference from some equipment I use. Guess it comes with the wireless territory.

Didn't last as long as I hoped.

Donald B., Newegg
12 August 2014
  • Summary: Looks like I'll be buying a replacement soon. Or taking them apart and looking for some new replacement cells.
  • Pros: I purchased this because I do not like headphones that go over my ears and this looked to be a comfortable headset to wear around your neck. It did turn out to be just that. I thought I would like the earplug type speakers but found that with extended wearing of the (8-10 hours) that I would get a rash in my ears. I tried cleaning the rubber ear pieces with alcohol daily but that didn't help. I ended up modifying the earpiece to be able to hang inside my ear. This fix...
  • Cons: Battery longevity is not as good as I had hoped. When this was new I would easily get 10 hours of continuous streaming audio play time from iheart or pandora. Now after just over 8 months it is down to 6 hours. This is of course with an overnight charge to make sure the batteries are fully charged.

  • Summary: What a terrific device. There is noise cancellation technology that decreases background noise. The earbuds are comfortable and provide great sound while being extremely comfortable. Great for hands free driving.

Still Going Strong

Tim C., Newegg
11 June 2014
  • Summary: Battery life is excellent. They have more then 12 hours run time depending on how you use the trhoughout the day. I was able to watch 3 or 4 movies 2 hours a piece give or take straight through per charge before having to recharge. Phone and music use I can go 2 days from full charge to dead before recharging.
  • Pros: This headset works really good. Sound quality isn't the greatest but they do sound really good depending on eq settings as well as the encode of the music. Call quality is OK on receiving end and they are pretty loud to boot.
  • Cons: Only con I find with these are the call quality on the out going end. They don't have noise suppression on them so no matter who I talk to on them (and that's everybody all the time), they a Rte always complaining that they hear all background noise. If I'm watching TV 8 feet from me I have to turn the TV almost all the way down while on the phone because all the person I'm on the phone with can hear is the TV otherwise.

Wonderful headset! Happy that I found such a good deal on it.

  • Summary: I love, love, love this headset. It allows me to move about freely while either talking on the phone or listening to music. I like the vibration notification and have not figured out yet how to retrieve messages via talk to text but knowing the option is available is enough right now. I wore them Christmas to family dinner and a couple of family members ordered a pair as well.

Good for what it is

Justin B., Newegg
7 January 2014
  • Summary: Good for the price paid, and recommended if these are what you're looking for. Don't expect to be amazed, however, if you're used to higher quality wired audio devices.
  • Pros: Lightweight. Looks good. Buttons easy to find & use when wearing. Battery life seems good so far.
  • Cons: Ear buds aren't very comfortable. Comes with two sizes, small and medium, and even the mediums are kind of small, so they penetrate deeper into my ears than I'm comfortable with, esp. when wearing a hat or cap over my ears. Acceptable, but I'd prefer LG spend the extra few cents per device to include a larger earbud insert. Audio quality is par for Bluetooth, meaning it's compressed and sounds like junk for people used to quality wired headphones/earbuds. Again, it's ...

You wont regret buying a pair!

cobrap1, Ebay
6 January 2014
  • Summary: I love them. Forget you're even wearing them. Battery lasts quite awhile. I needed to buy smaller ear buds, but I have that problem with any headsets I buy. Have recommended them to several people, all of them have purchased one. They, too love them. Newer model is out, the 730. I have seen them, but cant tell much of a difference.

better than expected

Paul F., Newegg
24 December 2013
  • Summary: I had been wanting a set of these headphones for a while, but the cost was somewhat prohibitive - until they went on sale as a Shell Shocker...price dropped below fifty bucks so I got them.
  • Pros: comfortable, light weight, works great with Android, pretty good range
  • Cons: signal starts to drop out when you get a few metal objects between source and headphone - regardless of distance (to be expected with obstacles being metal, after all). Other obstacles don't seem to effect them as badly.

Great replacement ear tips.

  • Summary: I purchased these ear tips to replace the really cheap ones that came with my OEM unit. These are nice and spongy and comfortable while wearing. Great for the price.
