Summary: The product was advertised that it was not made to be sound canceling so there would be less accidents or something along those lines. However it would have been nice if they gave the choice of sound canceling like a different ear tip rather than expect one size fits all.
Pros: audio is clear, also person on the other end never complained so that's a plus.
Cons: The fact that there are no other ear tip sizes. Currently one of the ear tips does not fit my ear so it feels uncomfortable when moving since it's not secure. Lastly, while not often but sometimes that headset would lose connection while I'm walking.
Summary: I bought these to workout with and read the reviews. I should have listened to the reviews of the product. The first time I worked out with the headset, it stopped working. Apparently the headset really does not like any sweat at all.
Pros: Works as intended and sound quality is decent.
Cons: Range is not good on the headset and any form of sweat will cause them to stop working.
Summary: I bought this as a replacement for my old mic for my playstation 3. I went with the same company cause their previous mic was excellent. Everyone is able to understand me very well, but I play for many hours and the battery constantly dies on me.
Pros: Good price, excellent voice quality, easy to use and offers more advanced features if you read the manual
Cons: Low battery life, hurts ears after a couple hours, you are not able to talk on it while it's charging, the cord in the back is rather stiff so if you lay against a couch while you're talking it might be rather irritating
Summary: Sweat is the only explanation of failure. I'm probably a bit sweatier than average, but not hideously so, and based on my experience I would not recommend this product for workout-related functions.
Pros: I've bought three of these. Battery life, form factor, bluetooth range, and price are all good, and why I bought the second and third one.
Cons: Sweat, I think. I was using these for listening to mp3s while treadmilling 5k's. The first Backbeat lasted about 6-8 months, then the power button became intermittently inoperable. The second Backbeat lasted about three months, same issue. The third lasted a week, and I gave up on the model.
Summary: I would pay twice as much for this product if it could withstand my sweaty workouts.
Pros: Form Factor. These were quite comfortable even when running.
Cons: Not sweat proof. After 1 mile, they would lose sound and buttons would spontaneously push. Too bad. They eventually died. I know that they are not advertised for sweat, but I wish. Stereo sound is good. Microphone not that great.
Summary: I must note though that I am not using the expensive Plantronics Bluetooth receiver for my headphones. I am useing http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16833242003. Maybe using the Plantronics Bluetooth receiver would make a difference? I don't know why it would.
Pros: The work as expected. I am using them for mobile calls with my iPhone and as well as with my PC for gaming because I hate being tethered to my pc.
Cons: They do what is expected. They have not failed. What I don't like though is the sound quality. With phone calls everyone sounds like they are in a tin can. It sounds really bad. I will just get use to it probably. As far as gaming, I was realistic in the sense that no I did not expect them to com...
Summary: VIAGGIO AL CENTRO COMMERCIALE Facendo un giro al centro commerciale uomini e donne si differenziano. Si, millenni di evoluzione hanno fatto si che le donne andassero per negozi di abbigliamento/profumeria/gioiellieria e uomini solo in un posto..
Pros: ottimo audio, custodia
Cons: microfono integrato, poco efficace, prezzo, non comodissime da indossare
Pros: • Умеет говорить на сколько часов осталось заряда. • Хороший микрофон и система шумоподавления.
Cons: • Прерывается звук при ходьбе, когда телефон в кармане брюк (проверял на разных телефонах и с этими телефонами другая гарнитура так себя не ведёт). • Безбожно врёт об оставшемся времени (при одинаковой нагрузке, в один день говорит 7 часов, потом 6, на третий или четвёртый может уже начать назойл...
Excerpt: Купил перед новым годом для занятий спортом. Качество звука неплохое, шумоизоляция посредственная, одевать неудобно, но в ухе сидят надёжно, не слетают. Главный минус - через 3 месяца перестали включаться. Сдал по гарантии.
