Decent pair

Anonymous, Newegg
13 March 2011
  • Summary: Overall, this set works well for me. They are wireless and pair well to my LG Xenon which doesn't connect to headphones. My only problem with them is the battery has to remain at at least 2 bars otherwise it might not charge or might not power on till it charges more. The sound was decent.
  • Pros: These were cheap ($18 on sale about a year ago). Wireless...
  • Cons: The sound quality of the stereo earbuds sucks. The Mic could be better. It is prone to problems (see other thoughts) Hard to pair with devices. Has background noise in calling and in listening to music.

Good for the price but not for everyone

Anonymous, Newegg

  • Summary: They should include multiple bud shapes as all ear holes are not the same. Either that or make the material softer so it can conform to smaller ear openings.
  • Pros: Good unit, good newegg price, it connects and it works! The stereo buds provide pretty nice sound so no need for Apple products! THe 870 provides excellent incremental volume control allowing the volume to be turned down to a very low comfortable setting (+1) and still hear the world around you.
  • Cons: But, the volume doesn't go high enough to overcome back ground noise when using the B/T all by itself. Plus the listeners complain about all the back ground noise this unit picks up and dislike having conversations (mainly in-car use). For me the ear bud is large and uncomfortable and it falls ou...

Intermittent Problems

David H., Newegg
3 February 2010
  • Summary: Except for the one issue dealing with static, (it's not my phone, the Droid), the headset performed as I expected. I have tested other bluetooth headsets with my phone with no issues. I just hope that I received a dud.
  • Pros: Works well most of the time. Stereo headset is decent audio quality. Nothing compared to Shure obviously. I like being able to have a mono headset for calls and stereo for audio listening. Paired easily to my Motorola Droid with no problems.
  • Cons: Biggest Issue: Occasionally the bluetooth will lose a good connection and the headset while in use for calls will become very static-y and indiscernible when I talk. Callers will often complain that they can't understand a single word I'm saying. The only option is to cycle the power on the bluet...

Not impressed

James P., Newegg
30 January 2010
  • Summary: Phone calls when listening to music are mono; have to pick up the bluetooth earpiece and speak into to get noise reduction and good voice pickup.
  • Pros: Stereo headset for Bluetooth music is nice, ear buds fit nicely for a one-size-fits-all design. Light, small and discrete earpieces. BT headset is simple and easy to use, instructions are clear and easy. Simple on/off switch is great!
  • Cons: Ordered two, one arrived DOA. Now I have to spend half as much as the purchase price to get a working one. Fortunately it is within the 30 day replacement period - manufacturer doesn't warranty this item, so after 30 days you are S.O.L. if it's defective.

Got used WEP870 with ear wax, not new!

Richard A., Newegg
14 January 2010
  • Summary: I'm returning it without trying it out because I don't want a stranger's ear wax and tiny fuzz hairs to go into my ears. I don't remember the last time I was even close to being this angry with a purchase.
  • Pros: Smaller than expected, comes with nice stereo earbuds and lanyard. Supports Bluetooth 2.1. Free shipping, so I didn't have to pay extra for previous owner's ear wax.
  • Cons: I received this from Newegg on 1/14/2010. The retail box was previously opened on the bottom. A small empty ziploc plastic bag inside was empty and ripped open on the bottom. The empty bag is labeled "Earphone/Ecouteur". There appears to be ear wax on the earpiece but the earbuds only had dust on...

Rebate my backside

Sam K., Newegg
12 January 2010
  • Summary: First blue tooth head set for me, impressed so far but will probably buy another model that fits my interests better (louder, more voice control) to replace it later.
  • Pros: Comfy, light, good sound for the recipient of my call even in slightly windy conditions.
  • Cons: Loose fit, not loud enough for my artillery ears. The rebate ain't a rebate, it's a "Samsung Visa Prepaid Card". These never turn out well, and newegg loses one egg on the rating for not shouting this out when it lists the item. Yes, I know you can click to see the rebate card and wait for it to ...

Decent earpiece, but don't trust the rebate.

NORMAN C., Newegg
9 January 2010
  • Summary: I've gotten rebates from Parago in the past, even though I had to call them in the past to get them to 'approve' it when it failed for some reason that really shouldn't apply. Apparently they're clamping down on actually paying out rebates. Be warned.
  • Pros: Good battery life, pretty easy to use. Mostly decent range as far as bt earpieces go. Pretty good audio quality for this price range.
  • Cons: Don't expect the rebate company (Parago) to honor it. They will allege something like you didn't include the UPC label when you did, and refuse to accept the rebate. They offer to let you 'resend' it, but that's quite impossible. (you've already sent it to them, remember?)

  • Excerpt: В общем, походил я с этой фитюлькой пару дней, и вернулся к старому доброму плантрониксу. В целом - задумка отличная, но как гарнитурой, надеваемой на ухо, я пользоваться самсунгом не смог.
  • Pros: Низкая цена. Возможность использования в качестве стереогарнитуры. Индикатор заряда батареи на экранчике.
  • Cons: Брал гарнитуру на замену своей Plantronics 395 как альтернативный вариант с возможностью работы в режиме наушников. В итоге сейчас хожу со старой. Новую буду пользовать только в режиме стерео для прослушивания аудиокниг, как телефонная новая не устроила следующим: ; 1. Убогий дизайн - квадратная ...

Auricolare bluetooth stereo top di gamma... un pò tap di gomma

b_sergioadsl, Ciao
10 May 2010
  • Summary: Leggendo i vari studi sull'argomento sembrerebbe certo (.. o quasi?) che durante l'utilizzo i telefoni cellulari prodotti in questi ultimi anni non emettono più radiazioni di intensità tale da essere nocivi per la salute.
  • Pros: auricolare mono all'orecchio e stereo con cuffiette
  • Cons: connessione per ricarica e auricolari stereo proprietari, prezzo un pò alto
