"My number one recommendation every time. =]"4.5 starson by ohnedich1313
Pros: Ease of pairing mode, sound quality, the various earpieces for the perfect fit.
Cons: No volume rocker, when I hit the talk button for too short of a time it tells me the battery life when I intended to voice dial.
Summary: Well, first things first, I work for Best Buy in Best Buy Mobile. I have customers come in all the time asking for the best Bluetooth headset for them. Generally, I point people in the direction of the Plantronics and the Jawbone Icon. I never really understood why I pointed them in the best direction, it's just that we were trained to be honest and tell customers that those two were the best out there for noise cancellation. Recently, a law has been passed where I live making it illegal to talk on the phone and drive. I realized that I had to get a Bluetooth headset. I first grabbed the Samsung WEP490, which was one of the cheapest with good reviews. I had people complaining that I sounded like I was in a tornado and that it was hard to hear me. I decided that I should just suck it up and shell out the money for the headset that I sell most.
I have paired almost every headset that we sell. I must say that this was the easiest. As soon as I turned it on for the first time, it went into pairing mode. My phone recognized it right away and paired without a problem. Much easier than the Motorola and Samsung headsets.
Then, after I paired it I decided to find the right fit for me. I thought that the earloop would be best, but I was wrong. I ended up just putting back on the original earbud. Though, it was very nice to have that option. They have two sizes of each type of earbud. I also thought this would be great if I somehow lost one.
Today I was doing yardwork. My dad was mowing the lawn and I was out arranging patio furniture. The lawn mower was close to me the entire time, but I managed to hold a conversation the entire time he was mowing. My friend heard me just fine, and I heard him just fine. I must say that I am very impressed with how the headset responded to the noise. It adjusted the volume for me so that I could hear him better in the noisy environment, but it wasn't so loud that I felt like I was going to lose hearing. All in all, a wonderful headset and well worth the price.
