Light

Light:
"The only thing that is irritating is the blinking blue light, but I got used to it fast."

"I love these headphones, only thing I hate is that blinking light haha!"
_
"Pros - Lightweight, comfortable fit, doesn't eff up your hair, good sound quality for a great priceCons - Ugly as sin, a little high on the nerd scale, not a big fan of the volume control functionality (but I rarely use it so that might not be a fair con), annoying blinking blue light reminds me of DBs who wear their BT earpiece in Costco while they shop, to look important."
_
"The headset is light weight, works great on phone calls and was no problem setting up."

_
"I've had this problem on my s3 and my MacBook so you have to keep devices still and close."

"The annoying: mini-usb for charging, I have a ton of micro-usb devices and really don't want to carry another cord around."
_
"The construction quality is also flimsy and the little rubber piece which covers the mini-USB connector came off on day 2 after only 2 charges."
_
"My only complaint is that the charge port is mini-usb and not micro-usb."
_
"The bluetooth light on these is only on one ear, blinks too slowly to be useful, is not very bright, and so really doesn't work in this regard- USB charging port- poorly placed (on top of headphone) so will be easy to break off accidentally; and rubber cover on mini-USB charging port is hard to snap in to the port securely- When headphones are powered on and connected to charger, they go into standby mode while charging, but when disconnected again they are powered off."
_
"I only have two negative comments and they might positives for some people, these have a standard micro usb charging port, instead of the mini-usb chargingport that has become pretty much standard in the non- iPhone world."
_
"They work well for all those uses, charge easily via the mini-usb port (about 2 hours for a full charge), and have easy to use controls on one earpiece."
_
"Item works great, it just uses mini-usb which is far less common now than micro-usb so I'd have to carry a special cord just to charge them."

"Sound quality is good and the cushioned ear pads ensure that you can enjoy listening to your music or broadcasts without interference of outside noise."

_
"Great buy only thing is I have a big head and had to heat and stretch the plastic but is still a good buy"
_
"Not terribly comfortable for full days use, plastic seems to push against head."

Tone

Tone:
"Only drawback is the charging alert tone."
_
"I know this seems like a small matter, but if you are dealing with more than one type of headset this can get annoying and confusing, especially when the tones are coupled with varying times you have to hold the multifunction button depending on what it is you are trying to do."
_
"The only thing i hate is warning tone when the battery goes low."
_
"Linking by Bluetooth was a bit fussier than the other set I bought at the same time (LG Tone), the plastic bows are a little bit irritating when these are settled over my ears (from behind the neck) but that might be the size of my head."
_
"The sound lacks the bass I expected from headphones, and the plastic was uncomfortable to the point where I stopped using it in favor of the LG Tone HBS-700."
_
"Problem with that is the warning tones lasted for almost an hour."
_
"The stereo and tone is excellant."
_
"These sound great, stay on, have a nice ring tone, good audio."

"If you would like something with better audio quality in general, I would highly recommend the LG Electronics Tone+ HBS-730 Bluetooth Headset."
