Just short of everything I wanted...
on January 7, 2014
I was looking for a inexpensive Bluetooth headset with an optional wire and a built in mic and when I saw this headset, I bought it immediately. While both the wireless stereo stream and wire connection produce excellent sound, the Bluetooth communication profile that is used with the mic leaves much to be desired. As someone who talks to others with headsets everyday, the moment I used the Bluetooth mic, both parties of the call can immediately notice the poor sound quality. As a friend has stated, it sounds like I have become a "robot". The bandwidth is reduced to the point where it's as if they threw in the mic as an last minute gimmick. It works in desperate situations where you may need it but I wouldn't use it for any important calls.
Other Thoughts: Noticed on the support page that they say this headset wouldn't work as a gaming headset to both listen to sound and talk to others, I would like to point out it does. Just once again, the quality is so bad you and those listening to you would probably be happier with you not using it.
