Summary: I paired this headset with a BlackBerry Tour 9630 and, as recommended by Sound ID, turned off "Echo Control" during Bluetooth set up (from what I understand, the "Echo Control" setting can sometimes adversely affect sound quality.) Pairing was effortless. Callers say my voice sounds clear and natural and they have no difficulty hearing or understanding my speech. I confirmed this by leaving a message on my voicemail; my voice sounded natural and I could hear very little background noise despite the fact that I had called from a busy grocery store. I could hear faint background speech only. I also use voice dialing and have been easily understood by the system, encountering trouble only when I give commands where there is a lot of background noise (on a crowded train, for example.) The headset's range is also adequate and exactly as claimed. Sound ID claims a range of about 30 feet. I encountered faint static at 40 ft, which is 15 feet through and beyond my front door. The "PersonalSound" feature is easy to work with, but I haven't needed to go beyond the "Normal" setting and have not encountered any issues with hearing and understianding the other party. My overall experience has been extremely positive. The headset has performed exactly as promised and within an extremely pleasing form factor.
