"Good quality, but bluetooth is spotty"2.0 starson by riw
Pros: Good quality sound.
Cons: Each time you sleep the computer, the driver reverts to mono sound at a very low rate. You must remove the drivers and reinstall them to get it back to stereo quality.
Summary: This is a nice set of headphones --just what I was looking for, in terms of getting a set of phones that I wouldn't need to plug in every time I wanted to listen to something on my laptop. The first connection was a pain, but I finally did get it working (after uninstalling a bunch of cruft Dell installed).
The problem is that every time my computer sleeps, the bluetooth connection reverts to mono sound at a very low bit rate --tape recorder, I think it says. To get the sound back to a nice stereo, I must turn the headphones off, uninstall the drivers in the device manager, remove the device from the device manager, turn the headphones on, go through the process of finding bluetooth devices, reinstall the drivers, then go back into the device and tell my system to use it for music and wireless calls again. This entire process takes about 5 minutes, generally making it only useful if I plan on listening to something more than a short video clip.
It's too bad such a nice design and sound quality has to be marred by something as simple to fix a bluetooth drivers. I've called Dell, and they couldn't figure anything out, just blamed it on the win7 bluetooth drivers. I talked to MS, they say it's a Dell problem. I tried to talk to Nokia, but they just don't answer the phone.
Bottom line: These are fine for connecting via a wired connection, but the bluetooth connection is horrible.
