Pros no wires and great sound, controls on the headset
Cons design seems delicate but has performed well so far
Summary I disagree with the editor's review of these headphones. I have had them for 6 months and have found them to be great for music. I tested them with my bluetooth phone and found they work with the mic, but I only use them for music now. I found that using them with my phone was more trouble than it was worth for everyday use. The range is very good too. They stay connected in most areas of my house. I receive no audio dropouts at all, except when I am syncing my bluetooth phone or PDA at the same time as using the headphones. Maybe this was the case with the reviewer or he had a weak bluetooth adapter. I also have found the battery life to be good. They will last at least two days of use and they charge quickly.
"Excellent product!"on by cabomix
Pros Sound quality treble and bass are very good, connects to most a2dp bluetooth devices.
Cons Doesn't compensate for lousy a2dp applications.
Summary I have used this device with treo 650 (with 3rd party a2dp application), with Iphone 3G S, Mac Book Pro, XP Pro with Logitech dongle and software and I have had perfect sound every time except for old drivers on the Logitech dongle or when I used the M$ integrated software were I would get spotty sound some times. Other wise everywhere else sound was over average and range was in some cases 50 ft without noise or stutter.
Pros as with any wireless device, you are not tied to the PC
Cons stops functioning
Summary My first BSH-100 stopped working in a couple of months. I sent it for replacement and the same thing happened to the second, in a couple of weeks. I do everything as required, the PC says "connected" and the headset flashes as it is supposed to. But there is no sound.
Pros look nice and functional
Cons vista is broken
Summary I want to like these, but vista has a crippled bluetooth stack and no a2dp support. I can't get them to work with vista as it ask's for a driver, and no drivers come with the headphones. I either have to buy something else or wait for a driver. Or consider downgrading my laptop to XP
Pros Fairly comfortable, good for hours of use at a time
Cons No noise cancellation, long charge time.
Summary I think the volume 'problem' is not true. The level can do damage, before it gets distorted. The sound quality is nice.
When I get a good VoIP connection, the other end is surprised at the excellent microphone quality. In a noisy area...not so well, mic is too sensitive to everything else. The removable mic is cool, unless you misplace it....
I did not get the range I had hoped for... I use an USB dongle. It often seems because of the WiFi units in the area, since I have gotten fair coverage at the beach. I have not used it with any cellphone. I bought it for the stereo operation capability. I lost the charger in Peru. So, I use the computer USB port to charge it. Anyway, I also have another 5V charger, with USB port.
