Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Audio

Audio:
"The audio is accurate although maybe not the most amazing sounding set of headphones but hey if I'm on the go and I just want some tunes in my ear not a big deal, this is not to say that they don't sound good but compared to my $300+ audiophile quality set of headphones these they are not."
_
"Audio quality is ok but not great."
_
"I tweaked my phone audio controls, but NEVER got decent sound out of them - everything seemed without any power to it."
_
"The audio quality itself is exceptional; you can connect it to two devices at the same time (e. g. your cell phone for calls, your laptop surface tablet for music) and it can easily switch between the two as needed."
_
"Video lag on mine is low on all these devices, making watching video TV enjoyable (in contrast to previous LG Headsets like the HBS-730 which had bad video lag).Audio quality is good and volume is adequate (though I rarely use it for phone calls)."
_
"Audio: Clear music, volume goes very low, volume will go supper loud, does NOT cancel out background noiseEarbuds: Comfortable in my ears, retraction feature worked flawlessly, does help isolate background noise, wires are just long enoughIn summation it is a great headset for business or jogging."
_
"Phone: Talk quality is good, audio is clear, does NOT filter out background noiseBluetooth: Range is very goodBattery: Lasts for a full day playing music."
_
"The audio quality on it is great and I love how long it holds a charge."

Button

Button:
"Two button mute is terrible."
_
"Also, the button layout is a bit hard to get used to."
_
"Ergos OK, buttons suck, retraction works but you will learn to hate it after novelty wears off."
_
"One final complaint is that each of the few control buttons is expected to do multiple jobs and this design is far from intuitive."
_
"The retraction button was hard to push and it had a click unlike the right side which was smooth."
_
"All the buttons seem to work great and I think are in perfect spots."
_
"The fit for me is perfect, all of the controls feel like they're in the exact right place and once you memorize what all the buttons do the experience is seamless."
_
"I like the Plantronics voice controls - but the phone button did work quite well for me - even when reaching under heavy jackets while outside."
_
"The phone activation button was easy to reach to both answer and place phone calls."
_
"The button placement is excellent and the sound is great."

Cable

Cable:
"the tiny little cord you pull on to pull them out feels flimsy but hasnt given me any indication it will break... maybe its all paranoia."
_
"It is very thin and I can see how clipping something accidentally could damage the cable, but I suppose they've got to fit it into the housing."
_
"Some people are complaining about how thin the cable is and of some static but I have not experienced this so far and the cable seems just fine."
_
"I loved the 730, but the cord was really unsightly and uncomfortable at times during use and sometimes when it's not in use when I'm wearing it.4.It looks elegant, something that I wouldn't be concerned being seen wearing even during work."
_
"I'm concerned about the long term reliability of the cord retraction as well as the very thin ear bud wires - especially for such a premium product."
_
"Yes, the cord is very thin but it does not seem it will break very easily."
_
"Retracting cables have held up great with constant use and i will admit the wire is very thin and I was skeptical to how long till they ripped but even with rough use they still work and have not worn down."
_
"Although the retractable cord is thin because it retracts I feel comfortable because the risk of damage is low."
_
"Do love the cables not snagging on anything"

Connection

Connection:
"Totally disappointed 1 month 3days later it kept connecting, disconnecting repeatedly, was over the return date, so shipped it to LG cause it has a 1yr warranty, received it back, 3 weeks later in a box by itself."

Control

Control:
"It takes a little time to get used to learn where the controls are on the main unit and a bit bit of time to get used to using the controls without being able to see them, but I got used to them quickly."
_
"One final complaint is that each of the few control buttons is expected to do multiple jobs and this design is far from intuitive."
_
"I tweaked my phone audio controls, but NEVER got decent sound out of them - everything seemed without any power to it."
_
"Volume control and song skip on the sides make it easy to control your music without having to touch your phone."
_
"The fit for me is perfect, all of the controls feel like they're in the exact right place and once you memorize what all the buttons do the experience is seamless."
_
"I like the Plantronics voice controls - but the phone button did work quite well for me - even when reaching under heavy jackets while outside."
_
"Controls are very convenient and one of the things I love about these is the vibration when getting a call or a text in case I don't have them plugged in to hear I am getting a call or am or hear my phone."

Design

Design:
"Im frustrated with LG because this is by far the best design, why can't they make it perfect!"
_
"I give it 3 stars for its excellent capabilities, but 0 stars for wise design."
_
"Why LG would think having a flimsy power switch right against a person's neck is good design is beyond me."
_
"I feel the product design to fit around the neck to be far superior to ear-only headsets and better than behind-the-ear receivers."
_
"The design engineers would REALLY be doing good by their customers if they would move the on off switch to the outside like the old ones."
_
"Rubber tips for the earbuds are well designed."

Fit

Fit:
"The earbuds fit well and did not easily fall out, even when doing machinery repairs."
_
"It is very thin and I can see how clipping something accidentally could damage the cable, but I suppose they've got to fit it into the housing."
_
"Although it would fit my neck well, it's a bit tight on his, so a warning if you are purchasing for bigger guy."

"Clear sound, long battery, and perfectly fitting."
_
"Pros:-Fits well around my kneck under shirt collar-Cords though thin are strong-Sound quality for music is good-Connects instantly to paired devices-Light weight design-Button configuration is easily learnedCons:-Absolutely no noise cancellation that i can figure out...(People complain about the background noise and wind when i barely hear what they're complaining about)-Volume level leaves allot to be desired (I stream allot of music, sometimes the songs come in low and the headset will only reach a certain level) A few times already i had to use both earbuds on a phone conversation because i couldnt clearly hear them on the other end."
_
"The fit for me is perfect, all of the controls feel like they're in the exact right place and once you memorize what all the buttons do the experience is seamless."
_
"Sorry for not answering but i had to test the headphones well to give a good and honest review, and in my opinion battery is great i work long and loud hours so having these are great they dont have alot of bass but if you like to tinker with your stuf alot you can get out that bass one thing about my order i know they werent new but it came dameged a peace is broken and the other ear tips did not come with the package and these ones dont fit my ears well they move and i loose sound especially that sexy bass i love not the best but still good enough , when it comes to phone calls its very easy to answer and to hang but i have trouble."
