Motorola H17 Bluetooth Headset,
This review is from: Motorola H17 Bluetooth Headset - Black - Non-Retail Packaging (Wireless Phone Accessory)OK, first of all, I don't normally do reviews. But I have had bad luck with Bluetooth headsets and this one has impressed me right out of the box.
First of all, any other headset I've worn has caused my outer ear to ache after about 30 minutes of use... no matter how I adusted them. But this one is like not having anything in your ear at all! I bought it today, I've been wearing it for three hours straight now and I've literally forgotten it was in my ear several times. To be clear, there are two options for wearing this product. One involves a plastic loop as shown in the picture. The other, the one I'm using is a soft rubber deal that just holds it from inside your ear. Sounds weird, I know. But it is seriously comfortable.
Now that I've beat that dead horse... As I've said, I've only been using the H17 for a few hours, so take it for what it's worth, but the sound quality seems to be just about the best I've experienced in a headset for under $100. It gets freaking loud! I don't have very good hearing and I had to turn it down at least half way. As a test of the noice cancellation feature, I made a call to my daughter from my garage and spoke to her while wrapping on the trashcans. She said she could barely hear the noise I was making but could hear me just fine.
The only reason I give 4 stars instead of 5 is that the sound quality of the speaker is not quite as good as straight through my phone.
By the way, the fact that it turns on and off via the flip out boom is a really nice feature.
