Easy Setup and Great Sound Quality!

Joshua C, Apple Store
24 January 2015
  • Summary: I mainly got this to hear audiobooks and podcasts. I opened the box and it paired immediately with my iPhone 5. The sound quality is really clear. The battery seems to last a long time. Now I can hear audiobooks while driving or at my desk at work...with no wires! Easily 5 stars!

  • Summary: straight talk and listen function is fine on this device. however, the siri function is clunky to downright difficult and i have not been able to get my distinctive rings only the plantronic ring. i usually only answered my phone based on the distinctive ring with a jabra set i had. now i have to pull my phone out of my pocket to see who's calling before i answer. annoying.

Works with iPhone 6

  • Summary: Purchased the iPhone 6 and this device sync with the new phone. If you purchased the Plantronics A170 new and have not paired it with a previous phone, it will be discoverable right away. If you were like me and upgraded from a iPhone 5S to the new iPhone 6 it will not be discoverable when headset is on and the bluetooth is enabled on the phone. You must treat it as a new device and hold the answer / disconnect button until it flashes red / white.

WORKED EXCELLENT WITH IPHONE 5S !!!!!

R S, Apple Store

  • Summary: I loved my headset. You get different sizes to fit in your ear. A choice in or over your ear or both...it lets you know when your battery is running low. I think it is very good for the price .. I had mine for nearly 1 yr until I forgot it in my pocket and it was washed and I never bothered to use it again. :( I couldn't do without it ... :(. Overall, I would highly recommend it. Very reliable!!!!! GIVE IT A TRY FOR YOURSELF PEEPS!!!!!!!!!

A170 Plantronics

Stephen D, Apple Store
5 November 2013
  • Summary: Expected the sound to be crisp, and almost natural according to some of the reviews, but my brother indicated he could tell right off that I was on a bluetooth device. Though it was fairly good, the sound was a tad robotic. The sound level button was also an issue. Leaving it around the middle level, it sounded OK, but once you cranked it up, the crackle in the ear piece was very noticeable and I immediately turned it down a bit.

Best bluetooth we ever owned

Freddy G, Apple Store
25 September 2013
  • Summary: I bought two for our iPhones 4. I wear mine all day and for the first time I have no ear discomfort. As far as conversation quality goes; I use it with the top down driving off the highway and no one is the wiser. The bells and whistles are great. I stream music while I walk and little beats whisper into my head. The range is good too, for those times when I am charging my iphone and walk away from my desk. My Mrs. has given nothing but compliments on the A170.

Excellent Bluetooth headset

Christian R, Apple Store
11 September 2013
  • Summary: For me, this Bluetooth headset works great. The pairing was very easy to do. I like that I can also listen to my Podcasts via the headset. Listening to music via this headset would be odd though since it is only mono sound (for obvious reason), but it worked fine. As with some of the reviewers, the volume control could be better executed.

Works until it buzzes in your ear

David S, Apple Store
12 August 2013
  • Summary: I need to go to my iphone and change the call source to iphone and then back to the A170 which works sometimes. I have never had a headset that worked so poorly. I have had $20 units and whole the sound quality was not so great they worked.. This thing while the quality is great it malfunctions consistently!! I wish I had saved the documentation so I could send it back!!
