"VERY short battery Life...Poor Volume"2.5 starson by tarkusnj
Pros: I like the 3 levels of Noise cancellation and 8 speed dial commands which the V1 lacked
Cons: I have never had a headset with a shorter battery life or lower maximum volume
Summary: First let me tell you I have been using headsets for over 10 years and cell phones since they were the size of bricks. I have the Q1 volume at MAX and it is still poor. I have had a difficult time hearing the person on the other end while I am driving in my car-windows closed! The Q1 battery has not lasted more than a day of normal use and 2 different days I had to switch it off while I was in my car because it was dying and it's not like I am using this for business calls, just about 10 personal calls about 5-10 minutes on average. I had lost my Blueant V1 and decided to purchase the Q1 but I am also dissatisfied with the way the Q1 fits in my ear. I have just ordered a new Blueant V1 and will either sell the Q1 or keep it in case I lose my new V1 again.Correction. The Q1 has 3 Levels of Sensitivity NOT Noise Cancellation. The volume is SO low, I misunderstood what the headset was saying! I just received my second V1 (lost my first one) and the volume level is MUCH better than the Q1 so my new Q1 is going to be a backup...bummer.

Updated on Jun 2, 2009I DID upgrade the firmware to v8.15 and the volume still sucks. The battery sucks also and now my ear loop broke and Blueant won't take care of me because I purchased the Q1 new off ebay. Blueant won't even talk to me about the bad volume and poor battery life. They must know they have a problem there. The secind V1 I just purchased is MUCH better.
