Showing 1-10 of 150
Comfortable but short range

Summary: I suppose i am used to electronics with a bit longer of an effective range than just a few feet. This headset has problems with any barrier or any kind, holding the phone produces static, setting down in a cupholder produces constant static, your pocket is even worse. Go for this if you have a big thing for cheap style or something, but it is definitely not worth it if you actually want to use a headset for its intended purpose of talking on a phone clearly and audibly.
Summary: This is great value for money. It works well and easily and you can hear and be heard well enough. It's clearly not the "crystal clear sound quality" you'd get from a higher end model (or a wired plantronics handfree for that matter), but it's convenient and cheap and an excellent buy.
Summary: I purchased this item for my mom and it seems to do what she needs it to do. The price was good and therefore, I thought it was a good value. I would recommend it if you need a blue tooth and don't want to spend a lot on one.
Summary: Pros: Fits firmly in either ear. Looks good. Holds charge for a long time. Cons: Amplifies surrounding noise (even air flow from vents)! Slow to connect when answering a call. Connection with handset fades in and out on any call at anytime in any location. I would never recommend this product to anyone. 2-stars.
Summary: I previously had an older model of this headset and compared to this model, the button on this one seems very sensitive and after I think I have powered off my headset later I see that I must have bumped my purse and turned it back on. Otherwise though its great! Great sound quality and battery life.
Summary: Since I have the unfortunate habit of losing my bluetooth devices, I was extremely pleased to find a source for a brand I really like at an excellent price. They were shipped promptly and I received two units for less than I would have paid for one at my local phone store.
Summary: Plantronics makes the best bluetooth headsets you can get for the cost. No contest. I have made the mistake of purchasing Jawbone, Sennheiser, BlueParrot, Motorolla, Blue Trek, and god only knows which others. Plantronics is the only brand I've purchased more than 1 of. While many of these brands cost well over 4 to 5 times what this one does, none of them can compare on battery life, consistency of connection, or all around value.
