Summary: Very nice concept and execution.
I purchased this item because I wanted a more discrete Stereo Bluetooth headset. I am generally not fond of ear buds because of the pain and discomfort of wearing them, combined with the buds slipping out of my ears. This headset is not much different, but the advantages of this unit outweighs the shortcomings I have experienced with previous ear buds.
To start the buds are fairly comfortable compared to other ear-buds. There is some minor pain in wearing the ear-buds, but is bearable. The buds tend to slip out so I have to push them back in (minor inconvenience). What is redeeming is that the base response is exceptional for ear-buds. The base is best heard when the buds are fully inserted in the ear. Another nice advantage is that I can wear them discretely while driving. I can keep one bud in my ear for hands free use, either left, or right can be used independently.
The design of the headset is novel and well done overall. The buds have a magnetic base that the buds rest in. Nice idea, but the buds are not held in place very well. The buds slip out of their base easily.
The headset paired easily with my Samsung GS3. There is an optional Bluetooth reader App that can be read and downloaded using the bar code reader on your smartphone to scan the 2D barcode contained in the manual for the headset, or in the Android Market place (Google Play). I only tried this app on my old Samsung Vibrant, which did not work well. I hope to have a better experience on the GS3.
Charging time is short (around 2Hrs) and has a decent time of use on a full charge (10Hrs).
Despite the short comings I mentioned in my review, I highly recommend this headset.
