Product Description

Product Description

Introducing the first Bose Bluetooth headset that does what others cannot. The Bose Bluetooth headset lets you hear and be heard, even as noise levels change. It is engineered with proprietary TriPort acoustic structure and Adaptive Audio Adjustment, so voices sound natural and you can hear what is being said better than ever before. In addition, an exclusive noise-rejecting microphone combined with digital signal processing on the Bose Bluetooth headset allows you to be heard even when calling from a noisy environment.

From the Manufacturer

The first Bluetooth headset from Bose does what others can't: It lets you hear and be heard, even as noise levels around you change. No matter where you are--busy street, crowded lobby, airport terminal--your conversation won't suffer. The unusually light and compact headset, with its proprietary StayHear ear tip, also provides comfort and stability while you're on the go. And simple, intuitive controls make it easy to take calls.

Bose Bluetooth headset adjustable volume
Advanced Bose technologies adjust volume to changing noise around you automatically, even in very loud environments (see larger image).

"Can You Hear Me Now?" Yes. Finally.

The Bose Bluetooth headset dramatically reduces interruptions like "What?" and "Say it again?" from your mobile phone conversations. Finally, you're less likely to miss important parts of the call when background noise gets loud.

Bose advanced technology automatically senses noise around you and adjusts the headset volume accordingly. In a loud environment, the volume increases so you can hear your call. When things quiet down, the volume decreases. Either way, the listening level remains constant, even as noise conditions change. All the while, Bose TriPort acoustic structure ensures a natural voice quality, whatever the volume level.

You'll sound Better, Too.

The person on the other end hears you better as well. The headset's noise-rejecting microphone differentiates between your voice and background noise, and transmits more of you and less noise to the listener.

With technologies that accentuate voices over noise, the Bose Bluetooth headset allows for more natural-sounding conversations with less effort and frustration--at both ends of the line.

Comfortably Secure

Improved sound quality is just half the story. The Bose Bluetooth headset is also more comfortable than traditional Bluetooth headsets. Advanced design and materials enable the headset to stay securely--and comfortably--in place. The soft, StayHear silicone tip, customized for the right ear, distributes contact over a greater area inside the ear, avoiding known pressure points. As a result, the headset stays in your ear without being too tight. No uncomfortable ear hook needed.

Easy to Use On the Go

The Bose Bluetooth headset is especially easy to use, with no complicated button codes to remember. There are separate buttons for power, volume and call send/end, all conveniently located on the top and bottom edges of the headset. And every action, from taking and ending calls to putting the headset on or taking it off, can be accomplished easily with one hand--important while you're driving or on the go.

Key Features

  • Adaptive audio adjustment technology automatically adjusts headset volume depending on surrounding noise: a constant listening level is maintained as the user moves between quiet and loud environments.
  • Noise-rejecting microphone filters out noise around you, allowing the person on the other end of the call to hear more of your voice.

    Soft, StayHear silicone tip is designed to fit the contours of the ear and comes in 3 sizes (see larger image).
  • TriPort acoustic structure ensures natural-sounding voice quality and allows for louder volume in noisy environments.
  • Three sizes of StayHear removable silicone tips (S, M and L) increase stability with a comfortable, personalized fit for the right ear. No need for an ear hook.
  • Rechargeable lithium-ion battery provides up to 4.5 hours of talk time and 175 hours of standby time per charge.
  • Battery indicator shows battery status from green to amber to red. Complete recharge takes 3 hours.
  • Answer/end call button makes it easy to answer and end calls with a simple pinch that won't dislodge the headset. Also enables pairing with your Bluetooth phone.
  • Power slider switch lets you easily turn headset power on (green) or off (red) one-handed, with a quick slide of the switch.
  • Wall and USB chargers provide two options for charging the headset battery.

I was beginning to beleive thatmy EVO smartphone did not work properly with the bluetooth head phone until ZI bought this Bose unit. It is the best I've ever had. I have tried Plabtronics, Sound ID and quite a few top notch headsets but only this one works perfectly with my EVO Android phone. It is loud, clear and calls are made by a touch of the button. It has volume adjustment and works flawlessly every time. This is definitely the Bluetooth head phone to buy. Bose comes through again with a class leading unit.

I've gone through many headsets trying to find the perfect one. After trying this one, I'm still looking.

Pros:
1. Volume is very loud
2. Person on the other end said they could hear me very clearly and could not tell I was on a headset
3. Sound quality on my end was average. I could hear people pretty well, but the sound clarity wasn't as good as previous headsets I have owned.

Cons:
1. Sometimes just randomly disconnects for no reason. I would be actively talking on it and like 2 feet away, and it would just disconnect. It usually reconnects within 2-3 seconds but this gets annoying. Happens maybe 1-2 times a day.
2. Expensive
3. Battery life is pretty bad compared to other headsets. I have to charge it every 1.5-2 days and I've probably only used it maybe for 3 hours talk time. I do not leave the headset turned on if I am not using it.

If they improved the sound quality, fixed the random disconnects, and increased the battery life, I would be more than happy to pay the $150 as I just want a headset that works! Sorry, Bose, this headset is below the standard of quality we are accustomed to from your brand.

I have tried a couple of highly rated BlueTooth headsets and never ended up using them because of their poor sound quality and other performance issues.

I was skeptical that any BlueTooth headset could be comparable to a wired headset, but this Bose unit outperforms a good wired headset in many respects.

1. Incoming sound quality. The quiet-room listing sound quality on the Bose is almost as good a wired headset. All other Bluetooth headsets that I have tried have a very bright, hissy sound that is really hard to listen to for very long. Voices on the Bose are both mellow and crispy-clear with good balance between low-medium-highs. It is not fatiguing to listen to.

2. Incoming audibility in a noisy car: This is where the Bose really excels. At 70 mph on noisy concrete freeway, this is the only way I can easily hear the person I am speaking to. It is better than the earpiece on my Nexus S phone and better than any other headset I have tried, including wired headsets.

3. Outgoing sound when I am calling from a noisy car: I have been told by my regular callers that very little background noise can be heard and that the voice quality is just fine.

4. Range, This may not be too important, but the range from my phone is equal to typical WiFi range in a home. I can leave the phone in the kitchen and walk to the other end of the house with no breakup or loss of quality. Other's had a range of about 20' but I was also using a different phone.

5. Snaps Crackles and Pops: Other headsets always had snaps and crackles regardless of the distance between phone and headset. The Bose has none of these Bluetooth artifacts.

This is the only BlueTooth device that I would ever use for business calls when I want the line to sound like a good quality digital phone system.

6. Value: The Bose costs twice a much as many, but I have two of the $75.00 variety sitting in a junk drawer.

Verified Purchase
I was beginning to lose hope on behalf of all humanity. After over a decade of development, the industry failed to produce a bluetooth headset that actually works. I have tried more bluetooth headsets than I should have ... than any consumer should have. The only "high end" bluetooth brand I have not owned is Jawbone.

Here was my problem list in order of decreasing annoyance:

- Poor sound quality, both inbound and outbound: I would always hear a crackling sound in the background. Listeners on the other side would think I was underwater. The sound quality was never acceptable ... unless I was talking to my in-laws, where it did not matter.
- Non-intuitive controls: Using voice dialing was usually a struggle. Double clicking required perfect timing. On/off was 2-6 sec button press, etc etc.
- Poor connectivity to device: One of my headsets would keep reconnecting to my iPhone every 2 minutes for no good reason. Others would get into a weird pairing state and would have to be reset.
- Fit: This has been one area where most hedsets did surprisingly well for me. There were a few though that were not so great.

Bose seems to have hit the mark on each one of these.
- Call sounds great. The headset has amazing audio quality. My voice is back out of the water. When AT&T doesn't suck, conversations are landline quality.
- Controls are so easy. I love the physical on/off slider. This was a great decision!
- Device setup was a breeze! It also has multipoint setup which I liked about my old blueant.

I have been using it for a few days and I have to say, a more perfect headset would have to be implanted in, well, my head.
