Summary: I've had this headset for over a year. Actually, I've had 2. It's easy to put on and very comfortable to wear - too comfortable, in fact. Last March I forgot I had it on - and must have knocked it off when putting my hoodie up or down while walking in an outdoor mall. I retraced my steps. Nowhere to be found. I guess the best indication of a positive review is that I didn't think twice - I bought the same model as a replacement. With two previous devices, I had prooblems hearing - and a number of complaints on the other end, as well. No such problems with this one. Sound quality - even while walking outdoors - is excellent.
Now, you might think I'd be a bit more careful with my SECOND purchase (and to be fair to myself, it's been a year since I lost the original), but last night I washed my pocketed hoodie (yes, the same hoodie that tossed #1); I wash it every 4 months whether it needs it or not. After tranferring 10 handfuls of clothes from the washer to the dryer, I felt around the bottom of the washer for any miscreant socks (they do hide under the spinner occasionally) - and felt a wiry thing. ? What-the-? DAMN! (Actually, not damn - same number of letters, but entirely different spelling). I was furious (with myself). I turned on the dryer, ran upstairs,l and tried the headset - nothing. Pressed the on/off - no light - nothing. Serves me right. Well, I decided to plug it in overnight - maybe a charge would dry out the innards. YES! It works like new! Im telling you! Try this experiment yourself!
I'm sold on this little gadget. I'm just not sure what to do with that wicked hoodie.
