They are light, have good quality sound (this can also be adjusted with the EQ on the Apple devices). They hold a charge well. I have used them 2 days straight and still going strong. The controls are easy to use and easily accessable. I wear glasses and have had issues with these type of headsets before but not these. The range is good. I went into the office next door which is about 30ft (10M) away and throught a concrete wall and no issues with sound break-up. Impressive
I would purchase these again and have recommeded to several friends. For a bluetooth headset this is definitely worth the money.
-Pair easily with Apple
None at this time.
To summarize, these are the ones to get. Your search ends here.
Unfortunately, I can't say the same for the microphone. It has no real protection from wind, so the only way you'll be able to make use of it for calls without being rendered indecipherable is to use it indoors while staying still. Probably.
My biggest warning however is that the form factor leaves a little to be desired - this shape will not fit all ear shapes or head sizes, and I seem to be on the edge of wearability because they get uncomfortable for me after a considerable length of time. I wish there was a way to extend or widen the band, because it does look rather small compared to other behind-the-head headsets I've seen and used in the past. They also don't cooperate very well with long or voluminous hair, so expect some fussing with a comfortable position.
There are other minor quirks that I don't feel are worth exploring in this review: use of a Mini-USB rather than micro-USB jack for charging, plus an as-of-yet unresolved issue with pairing these with my laptop (not worth exploring only because I haven't really looked into the issue, and I'm more likely to take fault with the laptop's Bluetooth drivers).
I believe I've covered everything I've liked and disliked about this headset. They're not quite for everyone, but with any luck, they'll work for you.
My thoughts: 1. Very easy to set-up with Blackberry phone, no issues whatsoever. 2. Sound quality for music is extremely good, very little outside noise. 3. The phone reception/clarity is great; have had no issues with anyone understanding my speech, and vice-versa. Really surprised, considering there is really no microphone near your mouth.
Only reason not 5 stars? They are not comfortable enough to wear more than about 6 hours straight; I know most people will not, but this was kind of important to me when purchasing. But- $28?? I would still recommend them, as compared to some of the $100+ sets out there.
I have used them virtually non stop from when I first received them. After fully charging they lasted far longer then the advertised battery life when only listening to music. I'm sure talk time uses more battery. I also listen to music at a pretty low volume so that probably has an effect too. They charge easily, I just plug them into my computer and overnight they are full (about 3 hours I believe.
I use these with both my iPad and iPhone. If you have your iPhone paired to the headphones, then pair your iPad, you can be watching a movie on netflix and still pause and use the multifunction button to make a call on your iPhone. It does get a little annoying if you frequently switch from iPad to iPhone for listening to music, as a re-pair is necessary otherwise the headphones will keep trying to connect to the last used device, but that is common with Bluetooth items, so I wasn't surprised by that.
Great sound quality, complete freedom from headphone wires.
Microphone quality / sound cancelation is great, frequently people have no idea I am using a headset.

These are FANTASTIC for the price. Hands free phone calls and listen to music; music turns off when a call comes in and then resumes when the call ends. Read morePublished 7 months ago by Francisco
I found these very uncomfortable if you wear glasses. Just impossible, and no way to adjust the fit. In addition, the left speaker was obviously defective in the low ranges. Read morePublished 7 months ago by Bill K.
