Use Multipoint One Call at a Time

Once you have activated multipoint and paired your two phones, it's easy to answer calls from either phone. When already on a call, you will hear a ringtone notification of the incoming call from the second paired phone.

To answer a second call from the other phone, you must end the current call (tap Call button) so new call automatically answers. If you choose not to answer the second call, it will go to voicemail.

This headset is the closest to perfect I've used.

Features:

* Dedicated sliding on/off switch.
* Streaming of music, audio, podcasts, etc.
* Long battery life
* Noise and wind cancellation
* Voice notifications

Pros:
* Connects instantly to phone. No missed calls due to on/off delay.
* Small size.
* Light weight.
* Loud, crisp, audio.
* Battery lasts a LONG time.
* Standard micro-USB charging jack.
* Can stream music or other audio from phone to headset. Great for listening to talk radio, podcasts, etc.
* Great Bluetooth range.

Cons:
* Single volume button rather than up/down volume.
* Noise cancellation not as effective as some other headsets.
* At max volume, it can crackle at times.

Review:
I have used about a dozen different Bluetooth headsets and this one is now my favorite. It's not perfect but it is the closest to perfect I've used. I've always been torn between the Moto and Plantronics brand headsets. The reason is the Moto headsets turn on instantly when you open the boom. They are also very comfortable. The problem is that the boom hinge breaks over time or if you put the headset in your pocket. Also, the battery life is okay but not great. Last, while the early Moto headsets had great voice quality, the newer ones are muffled sounding.

The Plantronics headsets get louder then other brands and they last. I have 4 different models and I've never had one of them break. They are rugged! Some aren't very comfortable though. Their battery lasts a very long time so I don't have to carry another charger when I travel for a day or two, which is good since Plantronics uses a proprietary charger.

Everyone should own this bluetooth! I worked at a cellphone store for about three years, and I've probably used over 45 different bluetooths (Motorolla, Plantronics, Bose (too expensive), Jabra, Sony, etc). This Bluetooth is the best Bluetooth I've owned. It has an awesome stand-bye time. 11 hours of talk time, which is great (nobody spends more then 11 hours on their phone a day). Charge the bluetooth at night when you charge your phone, and you should never run out of battery. Although there are many pro's to this Bluetooth every item has a Con. I'll list them:

Pro's
-Long talk time
-Long Standbye Time
-You can listen to music (Many bluetooth's don't offer that)
-Clear sound, and very crisp
-Very loud, shouldn't have a problem hearing the other person
-Very responsive, the other person can hear you very well
-Look very professional, I've gotten lots of compliments wearing this bluetooth (Looks great on Men and Women)
-Charges very fast (about 1 hour for a full charge, if charged from empty)
-Talks to you, let's you know when the battery is low, if the bluetooth is connected, and when it is shutting off, or disconnecting.
-Very comfortable, I've gotten a lot of earaches with previous bluetooths, this one is a perfect fit. I forget I have it on sometimes
-Fits both ears
-Inexpensive, cost 30 bucks, but built very well. Great quality

Cons-
-When the volume is all the way up, it has a static noise. (very minimal, but can bother some people)
-Charging port is on top of the Bluetooth, sometimes the clip can get in the way when you are trying to charge it. No big deal, but charging port should of been on the bottom.

Overall, this bluetooth deserves a five star rating.

The one I received the Voice Control doe's not function. The Voice alerts for Volume control, Bluetooth connected/not connected status, etc. also doe's not work. The on/off switch is very hard to use and the black and red on/off marking are missing. The scan qr code on the box, when scanned provides information for the Marque M155, which is not even close for the M50. On the bottom of the box, another label has been applied over the original label. The label over the original label on the bottom states the item as a Plantronics M50. which I seriously doubt. I believe this is a poor knockoff of the real Plantronics M50 of which I have owned a real one until I lost it. That one did all the things it was featured to do. Here is some info right off this web sites description:
1. "No model number, regulatory markings, or any writing on the back" of the headset.
2. "According to Plantronics, the Marque M50 isn't a real product. Box claims, "Just say 'Answer' to take a call". This is a feature of the (legitimate) Marque M155." Look at the retail box its marking is Marque M50 . "no such product" Correct name is Plantronics M50.

The Goods - - this is a very intuitive product. easy operation. easy set up. it fits well and stays put. battery life is excellent.

The Bads - - really just one. the range. if i have the headset on my right ear, i can't put the phone in my left front pocket. it has to go in my right front pocket and I can't hold my arm next to it. no kidding. i live in AZ, so maybe the heat is an issue? that said - 90 degrees isn't really that bad yet.

I am not going to return it. I will keep it as my backup for heavy use days. I'll find another product with better range as my main unit. If you are using this product in your car it will be great for you.

Update: (Dec 11,2012)
To clarify my review. My comments were based on my outdoor use. Indoors the earpiece works well with a range of 30-40'. The phone is a Galaxy2s and I have not tried it on other phones. I still use the earpiece daily in the car and at my desk.
