Pros Light weight. Good sound quality. Announcements are clear and audible... if they work at all.
Cons Poor setup. No voice announcement of low battery status, you have to speak and ask for it. Three finger salute to reset. Dropped pairing repeatedly. Poor battery life. Poor support. Not a good experience.
Summary I returned this headset and picked up a Plantronics M50. So far the M50 is a much better headset. First of all pairing the T1 was clunky. I was pairing to a Motorola phone. Dealing with the user interface on a Motorola V860 on Verizon is painful enough without the vulcan nerve pinch required to get this headset into pairing mode.
Once I got it paired by entering 0000, it worked pretty well for about a week, then in the middle of a phone call it started playing a little chime in my ear. I shut down the headset so I could continue the call on the phone. It turns out the battery was dying. I only got about 90 minutes talk time out of this thing!
The worst incident happened after I had the T1 for 2 weeks. Suddenly while I was hosting a call with about 20 people it went silent. Nobody could hear me and I couldn't hear them. I could see in the webex console that they were talking but I couldn't hear or be heard. And after the call was over, the battery level read "medium". This is outrageously poor performance for a business tool.
I went to the BlueAnt web site and the main option for support was watching videos with sound. Not something I can do conveniently at the office.
I called Blue Ant support and they talked me through checking the battery status. I can't do it while on a call and I must hit the multifunction button and ask for battery status. By comparison, the model I have now (Plantronics M50) cost $30 less and announces battery status whenever I turn it on. No looking for a button so I can "ask" how much battery I have. While I was on the phone with support, the T1 headset lost pairing with my V860 in the middle of the call and it took quite some time to get the headset out of the loop so I could talk to the support guy and tell him I had enough was returning the thing to the store.
This product has promise but it's clear nobody thought through the features and theory of operation of this device. They were in a hurry to get it out the door and made some tragic blunders. Vulcan nerve pinch? The thing only has 3 buttons and I gotta press all three of 'em with precise timing and "get lucky" to get it to reset? 90 minute battery life when the box says 6 hours? Dropped audio?
No thanks. Returned to store. Don't waste your money on this headset. If you still want one, wait a few months. You'll be able to pick a Blue Ant T1 up at Bit Lots for $8.
Pros East to install, Text to speech and caller name announce is a GREAT feature for when your driving and can't pick up your phone to see who is calling you. Sound quality is great, loud enough, clear sound when windy, callers never complained about noise in
Cons Connections problems with the Android LG G2x. Always had to turn it off and turn it back on again to get a good connection. After awhile and the phone would ring, I WAS NOT ABLE TO ANSWER MY CALLS with this unit - very annoying. When using voice recog
Summary I love the headset, loved the feel of it, very comfortable. Caller announce is a GREAT feature to have on a headset. But, I had a hard time using the caller announce feature since there was always a connection problem with the LG G2x Android and it when it was connected it didn't always get it right. So, I did end up returning it and got the Plantronics M1100 which stays connected with my LG all the time. We'll see how that goes...
Pros all of the above, very good, very happy
Cons radiation????does anyone know if these units are completely safe??? the manufacturer says they comply but what does this mean?
Summary I would like to know how much the signal strength of the unit is compared to say my Iphone.
I am a dummy when it comes to technology and I set it up in minutes!!
Pros Stylish, A2DP, pretty comfortable to wear
Cons Constant spotty connection & frequent disconnects, muffled audio quality
Summary I bought this headset because I listen to a lot of podcasts at work so I needed A2DP. Other than the fact that it streams audio, this headset has been the biggest waste of $80 ever & is constantly making me want to rip my hair out. The connection is terrible no matter what device I pair it with, audio cuts out & skips all the time, and phone calls are so muffled that people I talk to get mad at me for making them repeat themselves all the time. It's ridiculous, for a high-end headset like this I expected WAY more! Gonna sell this one & get a Jawbone, heck with this.
Pros Android market ap. leads to smooth instalation
great multi media quality
Cons noise cancelation could be better
having a hard time connecting it to multiple devices
Summary its not overly expensive and delivers the quality for the buck. for those that are bluetooth eliterate it has a ap to make instalation simple as can be. great for a PS3 user and not bad for phone call use but not amazing with wind cancelation...
