"Doesnt silence dog bark - strange fit"3.5 starson by denstoy968
Pros: Good sound quality - can filter ongoing nosie
Cons: Terrible to block sudden loud noises
Summary: Anyone else buy this due to their dogs? I like to hear your story to make sure I dont have 2 defective units. Well I work a lot from home and thought this would solve the problem of being on the phone and then the dog bark being an embarrassing distraction! Well today is my 1st day with it and everyone can hear the dogs! Even if they are outside. Strange though that if I am listening to tv or radio the caller can hear something but its more of a faint background noise. So it seems to do it's job there kinda.
Wind noise cannot be blocked - it sounds very staticky if you are outside with wind.
Now for the good - as a bluetooth device - it appears to work pretty well as far as being on normal calls. I can hear my party well and they can hear me without the bad echoes I used to get. I would be ecstatic if I was just buying this as a normal bluetooth device - but the fact that I bought 2 of these (1 for my wife too) for the main purpose of noise at home it failed me there.
I do like the looks of it. Could have designed the ear hook and bud little better - awkward getting it on but once its there no problem for me.
Oh and customer service... I emailed them about the dog bark issue... still waiting for reply - it says 1-2 bus days. Would be nice if they had 24 hr customer service line to call instead of email and wait!
