Button

Button:
"150% less confusing, and more intuitively useful, than all the other systems where you hold the button down for 3 seconds to turn on, something else to pair, etc., etc."
_
"This entails the blue light staying on, and all buttons becoming unresponsive."
_
"Only downside is that the buttons are a bit too tiny."
_
"This is cool because I disliked my previous devices and by holding the button down for more than five seconds and sometimes it worked and sometimes it didn't and at times, you never knew if it was on or off."
_
"Pros:+ Fit+ Size+ Weight+ Loudness+ Battery Life+ Easy of Use+ Comfort+ Micro USB charging+ Clarity (both for you and the other side)Cons:- The volume buttons are slightly hard to use, because the unit is so small."
_
"My old one only needed a button pushed, but except for my unfamiliarity, I have no problems with it."
_
"It is responsive to button presses, and is about 95% accurate with voice commands in moving cars on the freeway."
_
"All other functions, name dailing etc is also excellent, the buttons are small but that is the because the unit is so small and comfortable to wear while driving a car."
_
"The product is good but pressing some of the buttons will restart it."
_
"I also love that you can press the two volume buttons and get the battery level by voice prompt (it will say battery level is high, medium, or low).Other bluetooth headsets I have purchased have bad sound quality and no other device on the market has the capabilities of this one."
