Bluetooth

Bluetooth:
"Without a doubt the best Bluetooth I have ever used."
_
"However, people on the other end routinely complained that they could hardly hear me with my second bluetooth; I frequently had to readjust the angle of the device to try to improve their listening experiences."
_
"I dropped my first bluetooth twice (on carpet), and the earpiece broke off."
_
"I occasionally had similar complaints with my first bluetooth, but it was particularly problematic with my second one."
_
"I'm a twice-burned Bose Bluetooth series 2 buyer, hence my 1:5 rating:My first bluetooth lasted about 7-8 months before it broke apart."
_
"It's a decent size (compared to my old Plantronic Voyager), not as sleek as some of the other in-ear bluetooths out there, but less clunky than my over-the-ear Plantronic."
_
"I have tried several Bluetooth headsets and this is the best so far."
_
"After trying every Bluetooth Headset on the market (literally), this is the absolute best in every category from call quality to comfort to ease of use."

Button

Button:
"A small pice broke of from the on off button."
_
"The power button broke on mine after only a 20 or so uses and I am very careful (It was even in a hard case - so possibly a design flaw? )"
_
"Here is a quick list of some of the added benefits:* Simple and easy to use controls, slider for power, button for answer hung up and buttons for volume control (I hate the single multi function button on other units)* Ear piece design is excellent, stays in place and is easy to insert quickly* No ear hook which makes wearing the unit more comfortable since I wear glasses* Significantly lighter in weight than comparably sized units* Works very well with voice control applications such as Siri* Battery lasts much longer than other units I have tried when used heavily during the day* Customer service is pretty good compared to other manufacturers (you can actually reach a person quickly who wants to help you)Obviously nothing is perfect, but there are a few things I would love for Bose to fix or change (but are not deal killers for me):* Design battery to last more than 12 to 18 months* Fix issue of random lost bluetooth connectivity with iPhones (requires turning power off then on to reconnect)* Add 6 to 12 to the length of the USB power cordSo if you are looking for a light weight, easy to use BT headset that actual fits inside your ear and stays without constant fiddling, I highly suggest spending the money on a Bose 2 BT headset."
_
"I had tried the Jawbone and found the buttons annoying and the extra apps and stuff useless."
_
"As described directly above, this also makes it hard to configure what the phone button does on the device."
_
"Sound quality is great, there 3 buttons up top- 2 for volume and one answer hang-up button."
_
"I also like that the headset is operated using discrete switches and buttons that are all easily accessible while wearing it: volume up, volume down, answer hang-up (and Siri), and On Off."
_
"It would be nice if in A2DP mode the answer hang-up button would function to pause, skip and rewind (in iOS) like a BT headphone, but that's a small quibble."

_
"Perfect fit and not bulky at all, great investment."
_
"fits loosely & is uncomfortable."
_
"I give this device 3 stars because it's lack of versatility, not being able to swith ears and the flimsy ear gel that is so soft and flimsy to have a stable fit in your ear, For the price that's charged for this item you would expect a nice solid fit in your ear."
_
"Apparently the noise cancelling and other hi-tech sound tweaking functions do work well (I guess these things are what you're paying the excessive price for).The fit, at least for my ears is exceptional."
_

Hook

Hook:
"(I was replacing my previous headset because the ear hook broke and I did not want to pay $9.99 plus s h for a package of ear hooks.)"
_
"On the downside, it has no ear hook and you order it for one ear (right or left)--it doesn't appear to be ambidextrous."
_
"I like the Bose products, this BT2 is light as they advertise but the ear hook was not comfortable."
_
"The old Samsung was uncomfortable, both in terms of the over-ear hook used to keep it in place and the fit of the speaker into the ear canal."
_
"The hanger hook is flimsy, and when it was on the headset, the headset did not lay against my cheek for best sound pickup."
_
"Also the fit is genius, like no other headset I've tried on or owned, the innovation design utilizises a hook like style that sits natuarlly along the ears curve, instead of those annoying over the hooks which are lets face it, So 1902!"
_
"Here is a quick list of some of the added benefits:* Simple and easy to use controls, slider for power, button for answer hung up and buttons for volume control (I hate the single multi function button on other units)* Ear piece design is excellent, stays in place and is easy to insert quickly* No ear hook which makes wearing the unit more comfortable since I wear glasses* Significantly lighter in weight than comparably sized units* Works very well with voice control applications such as Siri* Battery lasts much longer than other units I have tried when used heavily during the day* Customer service is pretty good compared to other manufacturers (you can actually reach a person quickly who wants to help you)Obviously nothing is perfect, but there are a few things I would love for Bose to fix or change (but are not deal killers for me):* Design battery to last more than 12 to 18 months* Fix issue of random lost bluetooth connectivity with iPhones (requires turning power off then on to reconnect)* Add 6 to 12 to the length of the USB power cordSo if you are looking for a light weight, easy to use BT headset that actual fits inside your ear and stays without constant fiddling, I highly suggest spending the money on a Bose 2 BT headset."
_
"It fits well in your ear without any hooks going around the outside of your ear or jamming little ear-buds into your ear canal."
_
"It is also very comfortable but I would like an ear hook to make it a little more secure, especially when I a working near water."
_
"They give you three different sizes of their clear inner ear hook contraption, and I can honestly say I have never had an earpiece fit better than this."
_
"Comfort: No hook!"

Jabra

Jabra:
"Downside, the built-in smarts of the Jabra made it more convenient to use."
_
"And the problem I had with the Jabra and Jawbone headset was it wouldn't quite fit or the sound was choppy."
_
"The problem does not exist with my ancient Jabra headset, so the problem appears to be with the Bose headset design, not Windows, my sound card, or the Avaya client."
_
"I had purchased a Jabra bluetooth last year and was disappointed in the sound quality when I was speaking to others."
_
"He recommends the Jabra."
_
"The Jabra was close, and it also had great noise canceling, but it hurt my ear."
_
"I research them all, bose, jawbone, playtronics, jabra, ect....decide on Bose, b c of the comments on the comfort and quality of calls and sound of the earpiece and I'm proud to say, I'm not disappointed."
_
"The absolute best, tried them all jawbone, jabra that clips to visor, etc."
_
"So kudos for the great earpiece desgn, now license that to Jabra or someone who understands headset technology."

Loud

Loud:
"I take my work to the gym for a couple of hours almost every day but have been unable to make calls while there because of the loud music and other background noise."
_
"I am a truck driver most of the hands free are uncomfortable and not loud enough for me to hear."
_
"It is not overly loud or harmful to listen to."
_
"Either they did not fit secure in my ear OR the call coming through the earpiece was not clear OR the switches for loud soft, on off were too small to activate, etc."
_
"My only problem is that the alert for incoming calls is not loud enough."
_
"I love this thing, super loud, bettery lasts a long time, it never leaves my ear from the time I'm awake until I go to sleep at night."
_
"I do not have to struggle to hear the caller, I make calls in loud server rooms and works great."

Music

Music:
"The only negative is the battery, it last for about 3-31 2 hrs when streaming music continuously, which is probably common for most earpieces, but I like listening to music, alot of music, otherwise, the battery lasts nearly all day."
_
"- Listening to music sounds like any other bluetooth earpiece (i. e., terrible).- Weak noise cancellation ... people still know I'm driving while talking."
_
"I take my work to the gym for a couple of hours almost every day but have been unable to make calls while there because of the loud music and other background noise."
_
"Personally, I do not care how great the music sounds (it wasn't that great), if the battery drops dead in 4 hours, it's useless to me."
_
"Music never had to be turned down because of the phenomenal noise cancelling functions."
_
"All the bluetooths for exercising had reviews saying that they were great for music, terrible for talking."
_
"However, it is only a single ear piece, so music enjoyment is limited."
_
"The Bluetooth can be used to listen to music, as the sound is clear and bass good."
_
"The sound is great, and even music sounds great through it."
_
"It's great for listening to music from my phone when I drive with the windows open."

Noise

Noise:
"The advertisement said it will reduce noise, but it is not doing a good job with this."
_
"does anyone have a problem with really bad background noise when using it with the Galaxy note 4?"
_
"Compared to the video, the quality of the voice on the other end may not be that much better than others as even Bose Support complained of background noise when I called them on this headset for support on multi-phone blue tooth."
_
"- Great noise cancellation, when you're talking- Great lookCons:- TERRIBLE noise cancellation if you're not talking."
_
"Filters noise very well but terrible battery life compared to others."
_
"Work as others say I Drive a garbage truck for a living can be very noisy I have no problem with people hearing what I'm saying and I can hear them clear as day"
_
"Use this everyday at work.. Great noise cancellation."
_
"Great noise reduction around heavy truck and equipment noise."
_
"Voice clarity is excellent, and it does an exceptional job of blocking background noises (the exception being high winds)."
_
"Noise canceling: 3.5 (of 5) The Bose is good, but I still get some wind and other noise."

Performance

Performance:
"While I liked the performance of this product, it's reliability is not good."
_
"No, it doesn't perform as well as the marketing states in ultra-noisy envrionments."
_
"I was very disappointed this headset did not perform better."
_
"I have tried many hands free products through the years that just didn't perform well when used in the real world until the Bose series 2."
_
"However, I've noticed that they can be suffer from static from time to time which significantly degrades their performance."
_
"I have owned Jabra, a Jawbone a few Motorla's and the Plantronics Voyager Legend and not only is the Bose the most comfortable of all but it has by far the best performance."
_
"I have owned two previous copies of this product and find them superior in performance and sound quality to any other Bluetooth earpiece I have tried."
_
"It excels at performance in noisy environments as well."
_
"Very overpriced, but excellent performance"
_
"So if you care about style, probably the Bose BT2 is a better option for you because the performance is still excellent."
_
"It has excellent noise cancelling performance and (as I am told) very natural sound on the receiver's side of the call."

Plug

Plug:
"The only reason I did not give it 5 stars was battery life, it's not very good; you have to plug it in after about 3 hours, although it does not take that long to recharge."
_
"This little flaw is not that bad, assuming you have a charge spot several times a day, but this leads to another issue: while the charging interface is a standard micro USB, charging it for multiple times, gets the little interface loose, and the regular charging cable fails to fit because of an awkward design of the plug."
_
"Also if you make the easy mistake of leaving it switched on when you plug in the charger, guess what, its not going to charge."
_
"However, the ear plug is not a good feature and the headset can fall out of your ear if you bend down to pick something up or if you do not fit it tight enough."
_
"Buy it , I use these reviews to help me buy products also , so wanted to give everyone a totally honest review , fits in your ear great , very comfortable , even for long periods of time , great sound , small - not big and gotty looking , Yes , the battery is not as long lasting as I'd likeAbout 4 hours heavy talk time , just plug it in in between breaks , I also bought at best buy a truck charger , so can charge while driving , great product , never drops calls , Buy the Bose"
_
"This ear plug has great sound quality."
_
"Also if you make the easy mistake of leaving it switched on when you plug in the charger, guess what, its not going to charge."
_
"soft ruber ear plug, nice loud and clean voice, even at 60mph in my convertible, always easy to connect and light weight"
_
"And I find how the eartips rests in the ear instead of being a plug to be more comfortable."

Power:
"The power button broke on mine after only a 20 or so uses and I am very careful (It was even in a hard case - so possibly a design flaw? )"

_

Price:
"For the price, the battery life is unacceptable."

"but I certainly wouldn't buy it again or recommend it unless the price was $50 or belowAfter almost a year have the following thoughts:Pros:Great incoming sound qualityClear outgoing sound qualityBuild qualityBoot-up timeCons:Separate left OR right ear models!"

Quality

Quality:
"Cons:The only thing that disappointed about this product was the sound quality of incoming calls."
_
"Slightly disappointed sound quality about the same as the 100.00 blue ant & it looses signal at about 30 feet, the blue ant is good for about 100 feet or more"
_
"battery only last for 4 hours and voice is not too clear my iphone haves better quality voice"
_
"The Voyager was mediocre to poor in both these aspects (the Voyager sound quality was variable, sometimes fine but poor at other times)."
_
"The problem I have with it is the quality versus cost."
_
"Pros: sound quality is goodCons: battery life is terrible, 1-2 hours talk time and needs recharge (daily for me) , i can only answer a call with the answer button from the Bluetooth, otherwise it drops from headset to handset(iPhone 5s) called Bose about his and no one could help me, when someone calls in on call waiting, the call drops from headset to handset again."
_
"After trying every Bluetooth Headset on the market (literally), this is the absolute best in every category from call quality to comfort to ease of use."
_
"While this stylish headset provides generally great sound quality and fits quite nicely, the battery life and range are both wanting."

_
"Everything else: sound quality, ease of use, placement in ear, comfort, quick connect are all excellent!"
_
"One thing I will complain about is that it will not show the battery level on the iPhone and you have to rely on a small flashing light to decode how much battery is left (charging the unit is pretty quick; under 2 hours)."
_
"Here is a quick summary of my feedback:Pro- Good sound quality and volumeCon- Not as flat as some others which makes it difficult to keep in a pants or suit pocket- Short battery life compared to Plantronics but using the on off switch can mitigate- Poor quality product which suffered a fatal failure within 30 days"

Reception

Reception:
"I have had several others, and have always had complaints from those on the other end of a conversation - the biggest complaint being that they could not hear me or that reception was intermittent."
_
"However, the person on the other end frequently complained about their reception."
_
"I have had zero reception complaints since."
_
"One of the updates on my iPhone, or maybe my new iPhone fixed the reception problems."
_
"I recently returned the Plantronics 975, it was simply terrible...poor reception, background noise is terrible(everybody complained)."
_
"usually the reception is mediocre at best, it won't stay in my ear, I lose it because the fit is not good."

Simple

Simple:
"work like charm with android LG G2 took me few seconds , sound is AWESOME and think the BEST of all clear - dont like that battery life is limited to only 5 hours (not really may be 4 in reality) of continuous talk - din not try music streaming as not interested in that but sure is work as well as everything in this headset work so simple ans flawless - 4 stars only coz few minor things like again limited batery life and i can not see how much charge is left on the headset - would be nice to have indicator show it on the phone."
_
"Here is a quick list of some of the added benefits:* Simple and easy to use controls, slider for power, button for answer hung up and buttons for volume control (I hate the single multi function button on other units)* Ear piece design is excellent, stays in place and is easy to insert quickly* No ear hook which makes wearing the unit more comfortable since I wear glasses* Significantly lighter in weight than comparably sized units* Works very well with voice control applications such as Siri* Battery lasts much longer than other units I have tried when used heavily during the day* Customer service is pretty good compared to other manufacturers (you can actually reach a person quickly who wants to help you)Obviously nothing is perfect, but there are a few things I would love for Bose to fix or change (but are not deal killers for me):* Design battery to last more than 12 to 18 months* Fix issue of random lost bluetooth connectivity with iPhones (requires turning power off then on to reconnect)* Add 6 to 12 to the length of the USB power cordSo if you are looking for a light weight, easy to use BT headset that actual fits inside your ear and stays without constant fiddling, I highly suggest spending the money on a Bose 2 BT headset."
_
"If you want a simple, highly effective bluetooth headset, buy it."
_
"Volume buttons easy to use - great ergonomics - and off switch on bottom and 'hang up' button on top - very simple and clear."
_
"The fit is very nice and it is simple to use."

Size

Size:
"A small pice broke of from the on off button."
_
"A true pain in the rear to get it to charge, and finally wasn't able to get it to charge any more...The Bose unit is small and when worn with the proper size ear piece is a pleasure to wear."
_
"If you wear this unit and it starts to hurt your ear, you have the wrong size ear piece."
_
"It works really fine but very uncomfortable after 2 hours of use, even with The Small size gel cup, maybe fits better in other ears ha"
_
"Little bit uncomfortable in my ear and they did have different sizes of ear pieces with the device."
_
"It is a small, lightweight, comfortable to wear, well you can hear"
_
"The only one that provided various sizes for ear piece and fit well without being too tight too loose and with quality voice sound."
_
"Audio quality: 4 (of 5) Both the Bose and the Era (4) have good audio quality for a small headset and are clear but, surprisingly, I find the sound from the Era more pleasing."
_
"Small, good volume control, good mic, easy to pair."
_
"Size and sound is great."

Sound

Sound:
"Kinda inconvenient that it only fits in one ear, but it works and sounds so good."
_
"Cons:The only thing that disappointed about this product was the sound quality of incoming calls."
_
"Slightly disappointed sound quality about the same as the 100.00 blue ant & it looses signal at about 30 feet, the blue ant is good for about 100 feet or more"
_
"The Voyager was mediocre to poor in both these aspects (the Voyager sound quality was variable, sometimes fine but poor at other times)."
_
"I swapped to a Plantronics that is not as good on the sound, and not as comfortable, but is 1 5th the cost."
_
"I do find that sometimes people complain about not being able to hear me, that the sound is either sometimes not there at all or sometimes static filled."
_
"While this stylish headset provides generally great sound quality and fits quite nicely, the battery life and range are both wanting."
_
"The Bluetooth can be used to listen to music, as the sound is clear and bass good."
_
"The sound quality is excellent."
_
"Crystal clear sound quality and people on the other side also can hear you clearly."
_
"sound super good quality - Easy to pair and use - and over all a fabulous product as is all the ones I've seen by Bose :)"

Speaker

Speaker:
"Since I have dropped this 50 times due to it not being snug enough in my ear, the battery life is 7 hours compared to the standard of 8 hours, and does not have perfect mic or speaker (but better than any other), I still rate it 5 stars and superior to any other I have owned."
_
"Plantronics Marquee 2: Excellent headset but sound quality (speaker) not nearly as good as BoseHope that helps."
_
"It is frustrating because I have to switch to the speaker mode or redial into my calls."
_
"The tone for short battery is a little better but still it dies before all the warnings I'm supposed to get (according to the manual)Over all this is a very good headset for my purposes, but the short battery life is inconvenient b c I sometimes have 4-5 hours straight of phone calls, and towards the end I have to switch to speaker phone on my cell phone as this device is dead."
_
"i have personal experience with their outstanding speakers & surround product which prompted bang-for-the-buck confidence in the price."
_
"Sound quality from the speaker was very good when the earpiece was snug in my ear, but that only lasted a couple of minutes before it slid out of place, dragged out of my ear by its own weight, and I had to mess with the fit again, even if I'd been sitting still."
_
"The sound quality is certainly the best of anything but a wired speaker."
_
"The speaker receiver sound is incredible - the best I've heard in terms of clarity and proper volume, however the noise canceling they claim is overstated."
_
"Aside from those two things, the range is good, sound quality on both speaker and mic are great, and this is the most comfortable bluetooth headset I've used."

Streaming

Streaming:
"The only negative is the battery, it last for about 3-31 2 hrs when streaming music continuously, which is probably common for most earpieces, but I like listening to music, alot of music, otherwise, the battery lasts nearly all day."
_
"First and foremost, you will not be able to get more than 2 to 2 1 2 hours of talk time or streaming audio with this device."
_
"work like charm with android LG G2 took me few seconds , sound is AWESOME and think the BEST of all clear - dont like that battery life is limited to only 5 hours (not really may be 4 in reality) of continuous talk - din not try music streaming as not interested in that but sure is work as well as everything in this headset work so simple ans flawless - 4 stars only coz few minor things like again limited batery life and i can not see how much charge is left on the headset - would be nice to have indicator show it on the phone."
_
"Streaming music was decent; the sound frequency is pretty narrow (probably because it's designed for vocal) so don't expect any deep punch from this."
_
"Pros: It does sound very good when talking on the phone or streaming audio."
_
"Streaming audio quality is excellent iv."
_
"Strong points are when streaming music it sounds GREAT and you can pair it with two phones ....ones I'm using are the Samsung G4 and a iPhone 4s and had no problem once I called tech support to get the pairing correct."

Volume

Volume:
"However the dream ends with a rising volume of beeps that leads to a quick dead battery situation."
_
"Here is a quick list of some of the added benefits:* Simple and easy to use controls, slider for power, button for answer hung up and buttons for volume control (I hate the single multi function button on other units)* Ear piece design is excellent, stays in place and is easy to insert quickly* No ear hook which makes wearing the unit more comfortable since I wear glasses* Significantly lighter in weight than comparably sized units* Works very well with voice control applications such as Siri* Battery lasts much longer than other units I have tried when used heavily during the day* Customer service is pretty good compared to other manufacturers (you can actually reach a person quickly who wants to help you)Obviously nothing is perfect, but there are a few things I would love for Bose to fix or change (but are not deal killers for me):* Design battery to last more than 12 to 18 months* Fix issue of random lost bluetooth connectivity with iPhones (requires turning power off then on to reconnect)* Add 6 to 12 to the length of the USB power cordSo if you are looking for a light weight, easy to use BT headset that actual fits inside your ear and stays without constant fiddling, I highly suggest spending the money on a Bose 2 BT headset."
_
"Since it is so small it is hard to raise or lower the volume and not disconnet a call as the buttons are close together."
_
"The second problem is that the volume just does not go high enough."
_
"It fell out a lot, and the volume controls were terrible)."
_
"I know that sounds flaky but I have had enough of these headsets to know that most do not have adequate volume if your hearing is not like it use to be."
_
"2) The incoming sound quality (what I hear) is clear and when needed I can turn up the volume sufficiently; 3) The outgoing background noise suppression (what other people hear) is simply amazing."
_
"Dose have a Great sound and volume can listen to music and movies! "
_
"Small, good volume control, good mic, easy to pair."
_
"I am not hard of hearing but there is a lot of volume and the device is great at providing clarity."
_
"I have no problems adjusting the volume or answering the call via the earpiece while worn."

Weight

Weight:
"-It really doesn't feel like dead weight on my ear."
_
"(unless you have big fat fingers, because it is small)Update -- BEWARE the light weight and small form factor!"
_
"Well worth the purchase, fits snug in your ear, super light weight, great sound and when on the phone talking to someone they can hear me great!"

Window

Window:
"Even though I was happy enough with my Jawbone, I knew I wasn't really satisfied because I still caught myself window shopping for other brands."
_
"My only complaint, and it's not thoroughly tested as of yet, was a wind noise complaint with my window cracked and a slight stream of air hitting the side of the unit."
_
"noisy environments are where it shines best and that means all summer with the window down, malls, hallways: everything is crystal clear."
_
"It's quick to connect, the automatic volume control works great when running machinery or driving with the window down & the battery will last a whole day of normal use."
_
"fits my ear perfectly, i can actually have my window down and still hear everything."
_
"I can drive on the interstate with the window half down and am still able to hear who I am talking to and they can hear me."
_
"sound quality is clear, blocks out wind noise if your driving with the window down."

Windows

Windows:
"Now in a car with the windows down, MOST BT's will fail at this, as the Bose was average in this category, with exception of the Motorola HX1 and endeavor, their noise elimination is superior, however, your voice is very processed."
_
"Finally, anticipating an headset that I could wear while driving with the windows or top down on my car, I was a little disappointed in that it didn't cancel out all of the noise; however, it is performing so much better than any other headset I have purchased over the last few years."
_
"It's great for listening to music from my phone when I drive with the windows open."
_
"The sound is great (hearing other people), and even with the windows rolled down in the car and talking to someone, the person can easily hear me and not hear any of the road car noise."
_
"The call quality is wonderful, even with the car windows down (I use in my right ear)."
_
"The BOSE headset sounds great even when I have the windows down on the interstate."
_
"I can drive with my windows down and hear the person on the phone and they hear me as well, without the wind in the background."

Wireless

Wireless:
"I have just replaced it with the Sennheiser Electronic Presence UC UC Wireless Bluetooth Headset, which is not quite as comfortable in the ear, might be easier to drop, but sounds better, have more than twice the battery life, and it is certified to work with Lync."
_
"This is the best wireless earpiece ever."
_
"I love the freedom of wireless!"
_
"I tried a couple different headsets (wired and wireless) and this is easily the best."
_
"Sound quality is very good when calling, and because it has the A2DP BT profile, you can use it as a wireless headset for music and podcasts in a pinch, which is nice because it actually sounds quite good for that."
_
"It sounds so good that I often use it as a wireless pair of headphones just for listening to music."

iPhone

iPhone:
"battery only last for 4 hours and voice is not too clear my iphone haves better quality voice"
_
"One negative is the lack of headset battery display on the iPhone."
_
"One thing I will complain about is that it will not show the battery level on the iPhone and you have to rely on a small flashing light to decode how much battery is left (charging the unit is pretty quick; under 2 hours)."
_
"But new era does not work well with the iphone."
_
"For a while, I liked the Voyager, but it simply wouldn't play nice with Siri, nor would it consistently work right with the iPhone 5."
_
"Plantronic does not fare well with iPhone."
_
"This is the best Bluetooth iPhone."
_
"The Bose establishes and maintains the bt connection to my iPhone far better than the Era (3.5).Comfort: 4.5 (of 5) I can wear either the Bose or the Era (4.5) for extended periods without really noticing that they are there."
_
"Great Bluetooth headset for use with my iPhone."
_
"Don't know if it's a problem with my iphone or the bluetooth but this thing will unpair and repair itself randomly sometimes in the middle of a call and that's annoying as hell."
_
"This headset is fairly lightweight and works terrific even when far away from my iPhone (up to 30 feet)."
