I bought this to go with my iPhone. First of all- the pairing is effortless, and the accessories that come with the headset are worth a good portion of the purchase price. You get a dock for both the iPhone and the headset, as well as a cool USB recharging/syncing cable that will take the iPhone and the headset, too. So you get TWO docking mechanisms in the package.

The only real complaint I have with the headset is that it picks up ALL the noise that is around you. If I am driving down the highway- whoever I am talking to can hear the radio, can hear the sound of the car driving down the road, can hear me drinking/eating, etc. Trying to use it in a place with lots of background noise (grocery store, for example) is difficult for the person on the other end.

I am hoping that Apple will continue to tweak both the iPhone and this headset.

I purchased this item thinking it would work better, due to it being an apple product. This headset looks nice and it comes with a really cool dock, its not worth it. Its easy to pair, but once you have it connected, the headset sucks!! I cant even put my phone done because it will start to break up. I have to carry my Iphone, like if I'm speaking on it through the speaker; That defeats the purpose. I also have to constantly connecting my headset with my phone, because it just looses connection.

Apple's Bluetooth Headset offers great functionality. It has a sleek and stylish design looks and feels good. Also, the ability to charge the Headset with the magnetic charger in the Travel Charge Cable is extremely useful. The ability to auto-pair with an iOS device while using the Travel Charge Cable is also a great feature.

However, the drawbacks of this Headset outweigh the benefits. Relying on old Bluetooth technology, the sound and range are terrible. When driving or holding the device, call quality is mediocre at best; when standing up with device in pocket and locked, the Headset has a scratchy connection noticed on both ends of the call. In addition, older used Headsets do not hold much of a charge, lasting only around two or three hours in some cases.

While the Apple iPhone Bluetooth Headset looks good and the controls work nicely with the added bonus of conveniant charging and pairing, the sound quality and especially the range greatly limit the usefulness of this product. Apple seems well justified in removing this product from production and sale.

The only reason I give this 2 stars. The unit looks great! It is easy to pair (remember to turn the unit on after charging). The bluetooth battery indicator on the phone is also net. Did I say it looks good?

Now the bad part it sounds bad. There is a constant hiss when the unit is active. The first thing you here when someone calls is hiss. If you walk 4 ft away from the phone the audio breaks up. You can be sitting right next to the phone and get pops and clicks in the audio. Any real activity and the unit will come out of your ear. The battery is useless. if you can get one hour of talk time good luck.

If this unit were $40 I still would have taken it back. The only way this product would be useful if it were included with the iphone for $20 more.

Please don't wast your money. Apple can do much better than this. It needs a better buletooth radio a bigger battery and some kind of removable lightweight hook for around the ear. With these things it would still be the best looking unit on the market and it would work as an earpiece. Not as a piece of art. It would also be cheaper to manufacture. Apples first concern was looks and size.

I am now using my big ugly 1st generation jawbone bluetooth. That i can talk on all day.

Function before form.
