This Thanksgiving and Black Friday, instead of standing in the line for the deals, I spent the time online looking for a Bluetooth headset. For some reason, I ended up buying 4 headsets on a leading auction site. Apart from this one, I got a Motorola H3 and two Samsung WEP200. Of all the three models, this one turned out to be the best engineered product.

I'm someone who puts more emphasis on the functionality than the styling or looks. My take on the form: Apart from the the hook that goes around the ear, the part that you put in the ear is designed with a slight bent/curve. This way, the headset 'hugs' your ear in two places - around the ear and inside the ear. This is why the headset stays put and doesn't wobble or move or fall down, unless you intentionally remove it. It doesn't hurt a bit to have it on, even for a prolonged period of time.

Now the functional part: This headset holds charge for atleast two days of continuous use. I haven't tested beyond that. Linking with the phone is truly a breeze. If you have this headset 'authorized' or 'trusted' by your phone, it takes only one click of the button to reconnect. A double click while linked will redial the last called number.

When the phone is out of range of the headset, it will obviously disconnect; but it reconnects automatically when the phone is within the range again without you having to do that.

When I'm wearing this in the stores or drive around, it alerts you with a beep tone if the network isn't available and alerts you again when the network becomes available. I find this to be very helpful and interesting, as it gives you an idea of the coverage of your provider.

None of the people I spoke to, had any problems hearing me or had static, echo etc.

I originally bought this headset for my wife (her first BT headset) because she didn't like the look of my Plantronics Voyager 510 Bluetooth Headset with Multipoint Technology [Retail Packaged]. She found the 330 painfully uncomfortable and decided to sacrifice style for comfort (quite a departure from her typical choices, particularly regarding footwear); thus she is now enjoying my 510 and I'm getting by with the 330. I don't find the 330 uncomfortable for the first few hours, but I never forget it's in my ear like I did with the 510. If you have very small ears, it's probably a bad choice.

Here's a brief comparison between the two with my 5 point ratings:

I greatly prefer the 330's single side button that makes it very easy adjust the volume. On the 510, I found the volume and power buttons behind the ear difficult to reach and easy to confuse - probably my biggest complaint with the 510.

I prefer the look and size of the 330. It's more modern and discreet. However, it's not a fashion accessory and everyone looks like a dork with a flashing blue light next to their ear with any BT headset. I wish people would realize this and take these things off in public (especially in restaurants). I only use mine in the car or when at the computer so this is the least important criteria for me.

The 510 is the clear winner here for both me and my wife. Everyone's ear is different and I find the 330 less uncomfortable than my wife did. A few may find the 330 fits them better than the 510, but the 510 includes 3 ear pieces to provide a custom fit.

This is the best reason to get the 510.

I got this because it was the least expensive, decent looking bluetooth headset available. One really big thing in its favor is that, in comparison to other bluetooth headsets, the 330 is pretty discreet. Okay, I admit, it flashes blue every once and a while and people look at you funny. But it is by far one of the least obnoxious and lowest-impact earpieces in terms of appearance. For me, that is a good thing. You may desire a different, more bling bling look. Another good thing is the price.

However, the price seems to show in the quality of the earphone. The microphone appears to work fine- no complaints from people that I could not hear them clearly. But in my experience, this headset has been very variable in regard to how clearly I can hear the other person. The fidelity seems variable and I can't explain why. At this price, I really would not hesitate to buy it, though. I got it when it cost a little more and I do not regret buying it. I do not doubt that there are better bluetooth headsets out there, but I do not think that for thirty bucks this is a waste of money. If I'd paid $150 for it, I would say that the fidelity of the earphone is not up to par for an item of that price, but that's not the case.

This is a good inexpensive Bluetooth headset. I have used it in all types of conditions, walking in noisy urban areas, driving, etc. I can hear the people I am speaking with and they can hear me.

The only reason I did not give it the 5th star is that it is touchy when trying to voice dial. You have to be in a very quiet environment to voice dial with this headset.

I would recommend this product. You can't beat it for the price.
