BEST BLUETOOTH HEADSET MONEY CAN BUY. FANTASTIC PRODUCT, AT A GREAT PRICE.

tca1130, Ebay
26 February 2014
  • Summary: these are hands down the best bluetooth headset i've ever used. i purchased a pair about 5 years ago, and they worked great until the side got broken about a month ago. they still sound fantastic, they just no longer sit snug against the left ear. the break is no fault of the headsets.

  • Summary: will look for reviews of a better quality headset before re-ordering
  • Pros: none
  • Cons: I have just received my replacement headset from newegg.ca- same problem. plastic over the ear is shoddily constructed, as the 2nd set came broken at the same place.

Junk

Christopher C., Newegg
25 June 2010
  • Summary: newegg.com usually gets my shipment to me within two days with no extra cost. I don't know why this shipment from Atlanta to Missouri took 10 days.
  • Pros: Easy to configure and good sound quality
  • Cons: Both ear pieces were broken off, dangling from the wire when newegg.com finally got my shipment to me 10 days after purchasing. Doing RMA now but from reading other reviews, it looks like it won't be long before they break again. Would have liked to see the charger use micro USB

very good, but...

Gheorghe S., Newegg
15 June 2010
  • Summary: bought 2 headsets and 2 Belkin bluetooth dongle. first time I received both headsets with plastic strap broken close to ear pads. one on the left side the other on the right side. filed an RMA, one week later received replacements. payed 20$ extra for shipping them back.
  • Pros: price, sound quality, paired very easy with phone - LG Xenon and PC - Belkin bluetooth dongle.
  • Cons: plastic strap between the pads looks fragile, instructions for pairing with phone or PC not clear and misleading - found on internet how to pair them.

such a shame

A F., Newegg
9 June 2010
  • Summary: If the neckband adjusted, I would hang onto the replacement. Awful product design.
  • Pros: Sound quality for music was terrific and clear from my PC through a dongle and through my Samsung Intensity from Verizon.
  • Cons: Neckband busted right by one earpiece within a month. Apparently my head is too wide. Band is not adjustable. RMA for a replacement because I can't get refund under terms of sale. Plan to auction the replacement.

Do not buy!

John S., Newegg
21 May 2010
  • Summary: Note: This was not purchased through NewEgg, just wanted to let everyone know what a bad product this headset is.
  • Pros: Speaker quality good, music sounds fine.
  • Cons: Some echoing from mic during phone calls. The neck strap broke right by earpiece after 2 months. RMA'd, received replacement, neck strap broke in the middle on the first day. Taped with electrical tape, broke by earpiece again a week later. Have returned for credit on another brand.

Return Ruined This One

Steven S., Newegg
19 April 2010
  • Summary: Item arrived with a broken in two band. It was more a crunch than a break; obviously caught in something during manufacturing. The New Egg return policy made this purchase a bad one and made me wonder why I buy from New Egg.
  • Pros: Great Sound and Price (see below)
  • Cons: The neck band is a bit tight for my large (not XL or XXL) head. That would be all but... Item arrived with a broken in two band. That would not have lowered the score if it wasn't for the return policy. See below:

Many months of use...

Allan C., Newegg
19 April 2010
  • Summary: There is a reason it is vastly cheaper than other bluetooth stereo headsets. If you have a small head, you should be able to use it for hours comfortably. I bought mine on a shell-shocker deal for the price is it currently listed for everyday.
  • Pros: Great sound quality, good range, decent volume levels for general use (I don't like to listen to blasting music). Both audio and mic works perfectly with both Blackberry phones I've paired it with (8830, Tour).
  • Cons: Designed for people with very small heads... 12 year old's maybe? The comments about it being uncomfortable are absolutely true. I can handle about 1 hour max, and then I have to wait for the tracks burrowed into my skull to fill out. I cannot get the mic functionality to pair with two different ...
