"Great for making calls"4.5 starson by swtrainer
Pros: Clear sound from earpiece
Good sound on the other end
Cons: None unless you bought a bluetooth headset for something other than making calls or unless you can't use a bluetooth headset in your right ear.
Summary: I have gone through a ton of bluetooth headsets looking for the perfect one. Now, I think I've found it. I feel it's a better bluetooth headset than the Jawbone Icon or Plantronic Pro headsets that I've been using recently.
It doesn't have some features that some users might want: It doesn't do A2DP; It doesn't talk to you; It doesn't read your email or text messages to you; and, It doesn't play your music for you. But I want a bluetooth headset to make phone calls...to be heard by the person I called and to hear the person I called. This headset does that. Plus, if I want to hear my music, I don't want to hear it in only one ear in mono - I want to hear it in both ears and in stereo.
This headset doesn't filter out every single sound around you, but neither does the office phone that I use. Other headsets, the Plantronics Pro and the Jawbone Icon filter out noise around you better, but people I talk to complain about how mechanical my voice sounds to them and still end up asking me to repeat what I'm saying. This headset gives me "real" sound - both incoming and outgoing.
Comfort: No other BT headset compares. The eargels that come with the headset provide the most comfortable fit that I have ever encountered out of the box. All day use is more possible with these eargels than any other I have ever put on. I have paid $75 for a custom built eargel from Avery Sound and it really helped with previous headsets and that was pretty comfortable, but these are honestly better!
I like the fact that this headset has real buttons - a button for accepting a call and hanging up, a volume up button and a volume down button...and a real power switch. This headset is simple and user friendly.
I like the black matte finish on the front - no problem with fingerprints. I like the balance - no problem with it wanting to tilt down. I like the adaptive sound - it gets louder when I'm in a noisy environment. I can hear the people I am talking to and people don't complain about the sound on their end. THAT'S HUGE!
I have been looking for a long time...multiple Plantroincs models, multiple Aliph/Jawbone models, multiple Samsung models, multiple BlueAnt models, multiple Motorola models, multiple Jabra models...I'm not looking any longer - this is it!
If you want bells and whistles (and echo)...look elsewhere. But if you want to use a BT headset to make phone calls...look no further.
Thank you, Bose!
