Awesome Sound

Joseph D., Newegg
5 February 2010
  • Summary: It may just be my phone, but when listening to music if I want to switch to make a phone call I have to pull my phone out because it wont turn on voice activation when in MP3 player mode. My phone is a Samsung R450, and it pairs nicely. Overall it is very useful to me, just not very comfortable.
  • Pros: Stereo sound. Great microphone, the people who have called me while using this didn't realize I was using bluetooth. I was very impressed with that! Battery life is very good
  • Cons: Uncomfortable, the plastic covering the wires comes out and rubs against the back of your ear ALOT. If I set my phone down somewhere while working, any large metal object between my phone and the headset causes interference.

  • Pros: Quick easy connection to bluetooth devices. Sound quality is pretty good and the microphone works well even in a moving car.
  • Cons: Some comfort issues but works okay with a little adjusting.

Works exactly as Advertised

Paul C., Newegg
27 January 2010
  • Summary: Decent sound quality (FAR better than my phone to my sony BT5700 sitting right next to it when set up as an audio profile) Takes calls well. Again sounds better than my car. Either the BT5700's BT sucks, or they got this product down pat. (though my honest opinion is the former & the later!)
  • Pros: Pairs well w/ my LG EnV Touch. I can have it in the center of my house and reach every room (caveat: I have a small house!). I can plug in my phone, and set it down w/in a 30ft or so and listen to the headset while I'm working in the garage!
  • Cons: Sometimes when you pair it, it sets the headphones to the BT profile for a phone instead of Audio. You can tell right away when this happens because sound quality is (sensored by new egg). Just a quick re-pair and it comes up right as rain. This could be my phone though.

Good sound quality, but easily broken

CHIBUN C., Newegg
25 January 2010
  • Summary: Thanks Newegg for the great service for sending me another headset without much fuss. Definitely great service from Newegg!
  • Pros: Paired this headphone with my laptop and the sound quality was great, even better than a pair of average headphone. Didn't have a chance to test out the mic though. Definitely good pair of bluetooth stereo headset for this price.
  • Cons: Very tight fit. Kind of squeezed my head after putting it on and headphone is not for big people... The first headset arrived broken as the right earphone was broken off from the plastic headset itself. Newegg sent me another one right away without rmaing my old one. BEWARE, don't sit on it.

Great Quality, kind of tight fit.

Jeffrey B., Newegg

  • Summary: There is some slight background noise and high-pitched anomalies while listening to high notes (like flutes), but I haven't been able to determine if it's from my phone or the headset. Even if it's from the headset, it's not very annoying, but some audiophiles might disagree with me.
  • Pros: -You have to listen to the bass on this. -Works very well and has excellent range. -Easy to use buttons on the right speaker. -Excellent battery life. I'm very happy with my purchase.
  • Cons: Tight fit (not so much the arch as others are complaining about, but the ear hooks on mine make my ears hurt). After an hour or so of wearing the headset, my ears have had enough. But I suppose that's true of most headsets/headphones. The only comfortable headphones I've had are huge ones that go...

Sound is Good !

Geoffrey A., Newegg
11 January 2010
  • Summary: If you are going to be wearing these for hours at a time you may want to shop for something else.
  • Pros: Price is low. The sound is great with this headset. I like the music controls, and the connection time is fast. They fit snug, which is a plus for outdoor activity.
  • Cons: It took me a couple of days to get used to the hard plastic against my ears.

Nice set, tight fit

Rafael F., Newegg
11 January 2010
  • Summary: It is better suited for children or people with small head circumference. I use it with the iphone and it sounds great. I have not had anyone complain to me yet about poor microphone sound during phone calls. It would earn 5 eggs if were not for the tight fit.
  • Pros: Price, On/Off switch (unlike most head sets I've had), Microphone, media player controls (pause/pay, forward/rewind), very good sound. Very useful for iphone/ipod playback music and phone calls!
  • Cons: I must agree with the review that state this set fits very tight and after a 30 minute period it becomes uncomfortable. Moving the head forward and backward will change the position of the head set. So, I have to regularly adjust them.

Great for masocistic audiophiles

James E., Newegg
11 January 2010
  • Summary: I love these. Got them after Christmas for $25. They're light enough to go everywhere normal headphones can and are well built too. But unless you have very small ears or are prepared to do some unusual workarounds, I'm afraid I can't reccomend them.
  • Pros: Great sound quality. Like, really good. Can use for music and calls. Volume placement is intuitive. Battery life is spot on. A real on/off switch, no holding a button and hoping it's on standby. Though not advertised as such, they cancel noise almost too well.
  • Cons: Volume could use a few more increments. Can't turn off flashing blue light around call button. The pain, oh the pain.
