"Does not work!"on by boostedtsi91
Pros Look, price, good sound on my end
Cons Can't hear me on the other end
Summary I just bought this bluetooth heaset for use with my LG Dare. I like the design and I can hear just fine on it. However, the person on the other end can't hear me. They say it's very jumbled and they cannot understand a word I'm saying. Can't hold a conversation for more than 30 seconds. I'm returning it to Wal Mart today and looking for a better one.
Pros Old guy, doesn't hear well, and I can hear fine with this one. Once I read the instructions and followed them pairing was instant.
Cons Charger could be a bit smaller. Fit is a bit odd at first but it feels ok now.
Summary My third try and this one is the one. Easy to use for a non-tech guy. Probably have to get one for my wife now.
Pros slim, light, and relatively comfortable in the ear. nice and loud in the ear. good sound quality on both ends. looks cool and is discrete at the same time. easy to pair with devices. buttons on set are easy to find by touch.
Cons cant be charged without magnetic charging dock, no in-ear canal adapter can make headset feel loose in the ear. range on this thing is mediocre at best.
Summary good solid headset if you primarily use it in the car or with the phone in your pocket. people on the other line have no complaints and say they cant tell a difference between headset and phone, experience no echoing effect as is pretty common in lower end headsets. voice is very clear out of the speaker. pairing the device is very easy right out of the box, but can be difficult if using on multiple devices. battery life is great, i'm a heavy user and rarely charge it.
but, the sound gets awfully scratchy if you go more than a few feet away from the device, which is fine for cell phone use, but kind of stinks if youre listening to music. barely works through barriers like walls. buttons very easy to find for volume adjustment or answering a call. 3.5 out of 5, very solid device for the price.
Pros The only pro is the look and size. The one I bought came in a box "Communication Set for Her." It is all silver and has a delicate curlicue design with a little heart at the end. It'is so small it looks like a clip on earring. It LOOKED perfect!
Cons Cons: Callers can not hear me but I can hear them; voice activation works in about 1 in 50 trys. There is absolutely no noise reduction and the caller's voice cuts in and out.
Summary The look and size are great. But it doesn't work. I paid $80 at Radio Shack and I'm taking it back tomorrow.
Pros Good quality product, good charge time.
Cons hurts my ear almost immediately.
Summary It is very difficult for me to find a comfortable earpiece and this one just adds to the many that does not work for me. The earpiece does not fit comfortably enough, and I cannot hear because it is on the "outside".
