Pros Person can hear you more clearly over background noise
Cons A little big -but comfortable
Summary I was told by a co-worker to try this model and he was right. It's the best one thus far for our job with truck and wind noise in background. The wind still does have a negative effect but the major thing is motor and truck noise.
Pros Dual usage - Office and Cell - and REAL range.
Cons Power button pretty tough to activate on the ear.
Summary This is my 5th BT headset with my Verizon Palm Treo 650. This is by far the best. Very Clear, lots of volume range - which is great for my older ears. And most important - people quit saying "What" all the time when I'm using my Treo - they can really hear me. The REAL bonus is that I can use this with my desk phone at the office.
The range is finally what I've always hoped a Blue Tooth headset would give me 10 - 15 feet, not 2!!
I have very small ear canals, and the multiple size ear pads are great. It puts the sound close to my ear, with out being really uncomfortable hour after hour.
I also have small ears, so this headset sits a bit lite on my ear. Not a problem for office work or driving. But if I was real active - it may work loose. But then, if I'm real active - I probably shouldn't be wearing a BT headset anyway.
Having two chargers is a real bonus. When traveling - I throw the headset charger in my bag - it's small enough and just the right size....(USB Charger Plantronics??) And the drop in charger at the office is just right!
Overall - a real winner - I'd buy another one in a minute - highly recommended.Updated
I'm kind of surprised at the video by Kent German. If you watch close - he did not install the ear bud on the headset - which will really make the headset loose. And it will make the volume sound much lower than it really is.
Hey Kent - try it once more with the ear bud installed - bet you'll like it better!
Pros The pros are its Blue Tooth (Wireless Headset) and I was able to add my Motorola Headset to the Base as well as Add the Plantronic Headset to my V3C Phone.
Cons The headset is not that comfortable for me. It's probably me: I couldn't wear the Headset for more than 10 tens without getting a headache. Note: I have small hears.
Summary I purchased the unit to use with my office phone; as I'm normally on the phone for more than 6 hours a day. My old headset is a Plantronic and I’ve had it for about 4 years. I thought it would be nice to use the same handset with my office phone and my cell phone; that part of the system works. The cons for me are; it’s not that comfortable to me and there are times when the other party on the call cannot hear me clearly. The base is less than three feet away. The other problem that I have is that neither the seller (Colamco) nor Plantronics would take the unit back for a refund. I guess I have to sell it on eBay. My rating is based on not being comfortable to me and the service levels from both the seller and manufacturer. I'm unable to get 30 minutes of comfort and I need all day comfort and therefore the unit is unless to me. My purchase decision was based on the three previous reviews on the CNet and they all stated that it was comfortable.
Pros Comfort & sound
Cons Pairing was a pain with palm treo755p
Summary After several failed attemps to pair this unit with my Palm treo 755p I finally had successs. Turns out you have to hold down 2 buttons at the same time. Who came up with that? But this unit will work with the Palm treo 755p. Don't look for support from Sprint PCS. Thouse clouns don't know anything! My advice study study study the pairing guide first.
Pros No Static, Clear Comm, works equally well with PC and Cell, great wind filter.
Cons Dynamic Range could be better
Summary Finally, after 4 Jabras, 2 Motorola and one GN comes a headset that my bride hasn't griped about! All others would cause noise on my Transmit, of course, this would frustrate those you talk with to no end. The plantronics Vogager paired readily with my Treo 700W and Dell iXPS. Although Verizon and Palm claim this headset "isn't supported" it is by far superior in quality to any other I have tried. Works equally as well with my laptop and Cisco's IPCommunicator VoIP Softphone.
Do yourself a favor (and save a lot of money) by getting this headset first!! It may not be the sexiest looking headset, but at least you will be able to hear and be heard!
