Bluetooth

Bluetooth:

"No Bluetooth to connect to and no interference - just a easy solid connection to your cell phone."
_
"is ok product just not as good as a bluetooth"
_
"I've tried all the latest bluetooth sets and people would complain about the sound quality."
_
"These other products I tried included an adapter for my old 2.5mm headset (audio worked; mic did not), an adapter for my pc headsets (audio worked; mic did not), a bluetooth headset (Motorola S305, which thankfully arrived to me with a broken battery so I could return it, because it was horribly uncomfortable with glasses - tried it on before I returned it), and two different sets of corded earplug-style headsets (they were both a bit uncomfortable, and without volume control, even if I turned the volume down the whole way on my phone, they were still horribly loud)."
_
"I got a bluetooth that after a month or so is working great (TaoTronics TT-BH02 Black Over-the Head Rechargeable Wireless Bluetooth Headset with Microphone}."
_
"Never had complaints that the other end couldn't hear me (as opposed to bluetooth headsets)."
_
"I hate Bluetooth ear pieces and this was a nice cheap solution."
_
"I have a bluetooth headset as well, but I find myself using this one instead - it's louder and I don't have to worry about keeping any battery charged."
_
"It is so much more comfortable than any bluetooth I've ever had - I can wear this as long as I need without discomfort."

Cable

Cable:
"I think the manufactures are inconsistent with the cord length."
_
"My only real gripe, apart from the sound's inconsistency, is that the cord to connect it is 6 feet long."
_
"The cord was compromised somewhere, and now all my calls are sticky and choppy."
_
"- cord is flimsy."
_
"Now, I don't find any specific problems with this, but the Panasonic has more robust cord."
_
"My only complaint is the ridiculously long cord (must be about 8 feet), but that's a better problem to have than being too short."
_
"The headband fits my head well (I am about 6'2), and the cord is extremely long."
_
"cable is pretty long so I coiled it and put a string on it so that it does not hand below my knees when the phone is my pocket and I am wearing the headphones in the standing position."
_
"I have a cat that gets tangled up (pretty sure it is deliberate) in my headset cord and jumps off my lap ripping them off the phone I am talking on."
_
"Now, I don't find any specific problems with this, but the Panasonic has more robust cord."
_
"Nice long cord to the phone so I can roam around the room without taking phone with me."

Size

Size:

"Now a lot of people complain that the SIZE of the head band is too large."

_
"I don't know who this was designed for, but it doesn't adjust small enough to fit comfortably."
_
"I don't think of my head as very big or small, and I don't have any problem with this headset - the band is adjustable (notches (about 10 notches of extension on the band)."
_
"I recommend they make a sturdier product and have a different size for men."
_
"The band is too small, and it takes some adjusting to get into a good position on the head."
_
"The sound quality on this is excellent and it fits my midget head (6.5 hat size) with no problem."

_
"Downside is no line mounted volume control."
_
"Was happy with this produce when I first received it, speaker had decent volume and callers could hear me."
_
"I realize that not having a volume control switch is probably why they are able to keep the price so low, but I would rather they set the volume at the factory too high, then too low."
