Audio

Audio:
"The audio quality on my end with this one is terrible."
_
"Apparently the main problem with a cellphone is in its mic and audio amplifier - italways sends the same digital signal wirelessly to the Bluetooth connected headsetas any other phone would do, therefore everything works fine if I use the BlueParrott."
_
"the reason for 4 rather than 5 stars is that the audio quality isn't as good as the + version."
_
"When my friends are on their bluetooth headsets, I can't understand them, and the audio quality is so bad it's painful to listen."
_
"Audio is not great, I have trouble hearing anyone without a perfect connection, my blueant in-ear is much better."
_
"My new unit in November of 2013 delivered only choppy audio to my callers that was between entirely unintelligible or annoying clipped, at least when tested in a quiet environment."
_
"But the audio in the earpiece is blurry, even in perfectly optimal conditions I'm constantly asking clients to repeat information because I couldn't hear it clearly."
_
"It works great with my MacBook Pro on audio video conference calls and the other parties reported exceptional audio quality."
_
"Good fit, good audio, easy to pair."
_
"If you want to seamlessly switch between music, phone, and other audio applications like everyone else in 2015 - then purchase the XT+ or another model."

"This headset is not pretty, but has a long battery life, good range and excellent audio quality."
_
"The sound is good, and the noise canceling is good, however it is only marginally comfortable - after a few hours my ear is quite sore, but more importantly the battery life is terrible!"
_
"Battery was junk."
_
"I DO WISH THERE WERE MORE INSTRUCTIONS WITH IT AND I AM SURE THAT THE BATTERY COULD USE REPLACEMENT BUT IT IS NOT EASY TO GET TO."

"Works great, clear reception, good battery life and no complaints from anyone that I talk to."

Bluetooth

Bluetooth:
"I've had countless other Bluetooth earpieces, and every other one had problems I've had countless other bluetooth earpiece is, and every other one had problems mostly with me hearing other people for them not being able to hear me even with the windows up in the dump truck that I Drive."
_
"Sidetone would take care of that, and the Bluetooth industry aggressively fails to meet that need."
_
"Without any doubt -- the BEST bluetooth headset I've used! "
_
"My only complaint is the bluetooth range is absolutely terrible."
_
"Comfortable, loud, definitely does not pick up the noise in the background like other Bluetooth -- my only complaint is kits a lil bulky in comparison to what I'm used to"
_
"A little big compared to the standard bluetooth earpieces but the long lasting battery is nice."
_
"One of the best Bluetooth you could ever buy everyone says they're think I'm in a room by myself when I'm sitting in my truck driving down the road, great device"
_
"Best sound quality and noise suppression out there for a bluetooth headset."
_
"It's a great Bluetooth"
_
"Excellent best bluetooth for driving trucks or operating equipment."

Button

Button:
"I have only one problem, when I hold down the volume lowwring button to receive audio from my phone, it recalls the last phone number I called instead of streaming my music."
_
"-Maybe I got a defective unit, but on mine I could barely understand callers at all - super tinny thin sound with boosted high frequencies (so 's' sounds KILLED the ears).-FORGET music (obviously not what it's intended for, but other headsets often have music settings).-The worst part was that volume buttons make an EXTREMELY loud beep - same volume at any level."
_
"It's a bit fatiguing to wear, and the length of time you have to push the buttons for certain functions is irritating."
_
"His only complaint is the on off button is multi-functional and rather difficult to use."
_
"The buttons are a bit confusing, and the non ear side of the headset got tangled in my hair."
_
"When ending a call if the call is not ended immediately by pressing the function button any delay in pressing the end button on the head set will initiate a redial, which can be annoying."
_
"Easy to find the buttons to push."
_
"Excellent noise cancellation and buttons are easy to operate."
_
"-- The unit on the side, with the buttons and charging connection, is pretty large."
_
"The button combinations are still much of a mystery to me--I know two of them seem to be volume, the small ones pressed together turn out the blue flashing light, the big flashing button does other things--well documented on Blue Parrott site."
_
"the first one i had about four months was great untill i ran it over the secound one i got here at amazon when i turned it on it had real poor quality sound and the buttons did not work real well by day three it would not charge or pair with phone it was a large waist of money although since the first one was so good ill try one more to see if the first one was just luck to get a good one or maybe the secound was just a lemon"

Charging

Charging:
"Just really HATE the charging plug isn't USB or micro USB - my lighter plug has another full time use, but upside, I've not used it enough to have depleted the battery while driving."
_
"Beware, it requires an initial charge of 12 hours, so plan accordingly."
_
"Then, wondering if the charger was at fault, I wasted a day trying one more time, (Note: The charger is not compatible with cell phone chargers, so I was keeping it at work, which is where I was using it the most.)"
_
"The one that went missing held a charge for almost 2 dayss"
_
"I was worried that the charge wouldn't be long enough for his work days, so far he still says its great!"
_
"The packaging is great and it comes with a home charger and car charger."
_
"No reason why they cannot make it a little more durable charge a little more and warrant it for longer."
_
"The problem started around day 27, but I was not aware of only a 30-day warranty and tried to give it a good charge and try again."
_
"I use it for 12 and 14 hours at a time on one charge with no problems."

Comfortable

Comfortable:
"COMFORT - I hate hate hate HATE with a passion, earpieces that fit into the ear like ear buds or other bluetooth devices."
_
"If I had to complain about anything it would be the comfort, but honestly, after wearing anything on your head for 12 to 14 hours straight, everything is uncomfortable by then."
_
"I am a truck driver and it is very hard to find a blue tooth that is both comfortable for hours of wear and rugged enough to tackle the world of noisy trucks and all the equipment in the truck."
_
"The design and comfort was very nice but unfortunately if no one can hear me the item is useless."
_
"It was very comfortable but a piece of junk."
_
"It came in a very timely manner...Seems to work well, nice and clear...and fairly comfortable...Has a tendency to have a dead spot now and then, rare but it does happen...Otherwise I like it a lot...Seems to have a good long battery life..."

Connection

Connection:
"Not great because it doesn't let you know when it is connected or off."

_
"I had one person say they couldn't hear me well once and that it was scratchy but it could have been a connectivity issue."

_

Design

Design:
"The technology is great but the design is horrible."
_
"The design and comfort was very nice but unfortunately if no one can hear me the item is useless."
_
"This unit provides better sound quality and comfort than the headset design that fits over around the back of the ear."
_
").Design: it is comfortable to wear (albeit dorky looking), and stays in place, with no having to fiddle with aligning an easy-to-lose silicone cone with your ear canal."
_
"I had disassembled it and found that the pickup tube for the mic was kinked and didn't even face the microphone cutout so I fixed that (and disassembled a second BlueAnt I had purchased - same problem, so it's a design issue, not damage nor a fluke), and it did improve the sound quality on the other end, but not enough."
_
"The design really should have used Mini- or Micro-USB which is pretty standard for phones (except the iPhone)."
_
"The technology is great but the design is horrible."

Fit

Fit:
"works well, and even though I thought I wouldn't care that it's huge bulky goofy, it was just too bulky for me; hard to pack or fit under a hood; if you plant to just leave it in one place (car, office, etc) and use it there then a good deal, but not very portable (and certainly not pretty)"
_
"Only 1 problem: The headset fits too tightly on the head."
_
"The fit was uncomfortable for both me and my girl friend."
_
"Second problem-I could not achieve a comfortable fit no matter what combination of headband positioning I tried."
_
"Unfortunately, I could not always hear them due to the fit issue."
_
"This means if you go on a trip and forget your charger, you will be unable to charge it on the go, and will be unlikely to find an AC or DC adapter to fit."
_
"I'd recommend for those who fit my particular category OR for those who answer all calls without screening."
_
"This one fits very comfortably and securely without ruining your hairdo."
_
"I literally go to pick it up off my dashboard and realize that it's on my head already because it fit so perfect and it feels weightless."
_
"I have a large head and it fits perfectly."
_
"Excellent sound and nice fitting."

Light

Light:
"- The blinking blue light is annoying."
_
"The lights are annoying so fortunately they let you turn them off in the settings."
_
"The blue blinking light indicating it is connected is annoying at night, blinking more than once per second and reflecting off the windows."
_
"Got a little confused about the linking procedure as you are supposed to watch lights and listen for tones."
_
"Sorta hard to see lights when unit is on your head, but, I just listened for the tones and assumed the lights were doing their thing."
_
"I'll probably get used to wearing it around, hopefully before launching it out the window for missing another call :)Another terrible thing about it is the flashing lights."
_
"It is light and comfortable."
_
"A headset that is light on the head and easy on the ear."
_
"I would like to be able to adjust the blinking light, it can be distracting at night."
_
"The button combinations are still much of a mystery to me--I know two of them seem to be volume, the small ones pressed together turn out the blue flashing light, the big flashing button does other things--well documented on Blue Parrott site."
_
"The flashing blue light is able to be turned off with the head set on."

_
"Apparently the microphone isn't that great."
_
"In the last 2 years, the headsets I order all have the same problem, bad microphones and bad sound through the earpiece."
_
"Apparently the main problem with a cellphone is in its mic and audio amplifier - italways sends the same digital signal wirelessly to the Bluetooth connected headsetas any other phone would do, therefore everything works fine if I use the BlueParrott."
_
"The noise-canceling abilities of the microphone is quite remarkable, really."
_
"Very good - no issues - excellent sound - no one complains about sound quality unless the boom mic is not close to my mouth"
_
"The sound clarity and adjustibility of the microphone and headpiece is good."
_
"If you are looking for an over-the-head blue tooth headset with a great noise cancelling mic, look no further."

_
"The speaker sound is ok, but not really adequate for music."
_
"Good quality sound for speaking, but not great for music."
_
"Also would be nice if I could stream music through it when not on a call."
_
"If you want to seamlessly switch between music, phone, and other audio applications like everyone else in 2015 - then purchase the XT+ or another model."
_
"It's great but can't listen to my music."
_
"The blueparrott vxi+ plays music though, it is still a great buy 100%"
_
"This might not be a problem when you are in a call, obviously, but if you are trying to listen to music or having a conversation with someone in the vehicle when not on a call it could get in the way!"
