Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Adapter

Adapter:
"Second, they were more difficult to connect to my phone and failed to be recognized by a bluetooth adapter on my desktop that had no trouble finding the first pair I owned."
_
"The device itself works well but somehow the power adapter failed within a week."
_
"Be warned, these headsets have crappy range (I tested this with my Kinivo Bluetooth adapter), seem to randomly dim die in one or more ear bud, and LG will not replace them if you buy them through one of these 3rd-party sellers."
_
"Since this works with my phone I am pretty sure the problem lies with the mouse Bluetooth adapter, Windows Bluetooth software, the headset device driver, or Lync itself."
_
"I got another cheap adapter for the PC that had aptX ability, and all the problems seemed to go away for the most part."
_
"The other real problem I have with it is it's compatibility problems it only works with Android and iOS officially, I can get it to work on a Windows 7 with the right Bluetooth adapter but it has a whole mess of problems mostly that when you pause it you can't get it to unpause again without turn off the headset and back on again and I couldn't get it to work on my Mac at all, which is understandable as they don't support anything but mobile devices."
_
"I liked them so much that I bought a bluetooth adapter for my flat screen TV."
_
"I needed to get a Bluetooth adapter for my computer first, although that was no fault of the product."
_
"But still, I think I prefer a nicer quality ear buds with a bluetooth adapter if I really wanted to go handsfree."
_
"The device itself works well but somehow the power adapter failed within a week."
_
"Good sound quality, easy Bluetooth compatibility with my phone, tablet and TV adapter and excellent battery life."

"The second set purchased from Amazon just suffered a similar failure today, only this time it's the right earbud that died."
_
"I really don't know what the 'scheme' is, but this is the secondand lasttime I bought electronics through Amazon prime that was faulty."
_
"They worked fine and love the orange color but after 32 days just in time for the amazon warranty to expire the on off button broke."

_
"Unfortunately it cuts off for a second or two anywhere from every 10 seconds to every couple minutes, with the Kindle within a couple feet of me."
_
"Also, the size and configuration of the whole headset makes them hard to store anywhere except on your neck."

Application:

_
"Any other hands free application is pretty convenient."
_
"While a $50 bluetooth will never give you the quality of sound a good wired set will, the convenience outweighs the sound for many applications and they certainly sound good enough."
_
"Those that volume is too high and I had such, I recommend to use application Accudio for Iphone that allow low volume."

Bike

Bike:
"Getting used to the feel of it on your neck, using the magnetic ear buds effectively while driving or riding your bike is challenging ....however, once you master these things, this is a great product if you use your phone as an MP3 player, for movies, and if you use your phone a lot during the operation of your car, bicycle or motorcycle."
_
"My husband loved it and he is not one to be pleased eassly he uses it the car bike train everywhere"
_
"I use this for listening to audio books while riding my bike (yes, not perfectly safe, I know)."

_

Button

Button:
"Absolutely loved it but within less than 3 months, the power button stopped functioning and it's been painful to figure out how to get it returned for repair with LG."
_
"I will admit that the buttons are a little hard to get accustomed to but once I used it a couple of days they were fine."
_
"However, after 10 months the on off button failed to work."

Clip

Clip:
"I have used them daily for 6 months and have been very happy but keep reading...**Pros**Freedom to move around wirelessly - up to 20-30' away from deviceGood quality soundLong battery lifeVariety of button controls**Cons**plastic clips which tether the cord to headset are flimsy - one has brokenOn off switch just malfunctioned and is dead at 6 mosEmail to LG for warranty repair replacement has been sent."
_
"His only real complaint is that the plastic clips that hold the wire to the frame are kind of cheap and don't hold the wires as well as he would like."
_
"My only complaint is the cord clips fall over too easily if you are taking off a sweatshirt or something like that."
_
"I love this headset but my only problem is that the clips that keep the wires in place broke way too easily."
_
"The retaining clips broke with light usage but so far so good."
_
"I hate that the clips broke that keep the strings out of the way."
_
"Also, the little clips that hold the wires down seem to pop off easily."
_
"The clips that hold the wires break very easy and then if they get pulled all the strain can rip the wire out."
_
"Also, the rubber clips that hold the cords on place break very easily."
_
"Please consider making the clips metal with felt lining."
_
"If the headphone battery lasted a little longer, they were a LOT more durable, and I didn't have audio streaming issues with Windows, I would have definitely rated them five stars, but the major problems that I ran into with these could have been easily avoided if LG would have used better quality clips (that would have cost VERY little money to upgrade) and if they would have tested fixed the Windows drivers more thoroughly."

Connection

Connection:
"I have had problems connecting it to my iPhone 6, but from what information I have gathered, this seems to be a flaw on Apple's part."
_
"This is the second pair of LG head sets that I buy, the first one I really like it, however the second one had problems dropping connection between my phone and the headset, and the voice was not quite as clearer as the first one."

Connector

Connector:
"Also the range on this product is terrible I'd put the phone (Note 3) in my side jacket pocket or in the back pocket of my jeans and it would break up really badly."
_
"Addition after the winter: These don't work well when wearing a jacket, in my case snow blowing."
_
"Your sweat will cause a short between Power Ground in the connector (I'm assuming) causing the device to hiccup."
_
"I broke the headphones jack on my phone and was left with a choice - hold my headphones a certain way every time I wanted to listen to music, buy a new phone device or listen to no music."
_
"Everyone hates the crackling sound of a busted headphone jack and this device hurdles that problem."
_
"The only thing about it is it's hard to use while wearing a hoodie or big jacket because of the around the neck design."
_
"The connectors allow the cord length to be adjusted which is a nice feather."
_
"Did not get the new LG 800 'cuz don't like the new placement of the control buttons on the side of the front neck band -- prefer them on the top portion like on the 700 & 730 models as easier to use when wearing a collared shirt or jacket."
_
"if you keep the neck-piece outside your jacket, you can work the controls pretty well, provided you're not wearing thick gloves."
_
"This is not only frustrating, but with them just dangling there, they easily got caught on my jacket, shoulder strap of my purse and scarf."
_
"My phone has been in a front pocket, a jacket, a backpack, across the room- it's great."

Cord

Cord:
"I hate getting tangled in cords so this is great for cleaning the house or going for a run."
_
"The clips on the headset that hold the earphone cords are a little bit weak and slide around a bit."
_
"Nice product but cords are a problem"
_
"I opted to not get the retractable earbuds because I know that could fail eventually and I'm stuck with the cords being long."
_
"The cords connecting the earbuds are weak and flimsy."
_
"My only complaint is that the cords connecting the ear buds to the headset piece seem a little fragile because they're so thin."
_
"The little plastic pieces that holds the cords for the ear plugs easily come off when you pull on the ear plugs."
_
"I hate getting tangled in cords so this is great for cleaning the house or going for a run."
_
"Also, the rubber clips that hold the cords on place break very easily."

"Nice product but cords are a problem"

Disconnect

Disconnect:
"With these I can't be too far from my computer or else it will disconnect and to connect it's a huge hassle."
_
"Why does this Bluetooth occasionally disconnects when a call come in....very annoying especially when driving?"
_
"If my phone is in my pockets (front or back even jacket), in my purse on my shoulder, if my arm or small dog is between phone and headset, it breaks up, glitches, and even disconnects."
_
"I brought this bluetooth headset few days ago within this short period i cant charge, disconnect me from my device many times and bass is horrible."
_
"Adequate sound but am unable to disconnect from a call without turning off the headset."
_
"I have had two of these before and both were great, this one (NOT AUTHENTIC) was sold to me at authentic pricing and disconnects 12 times a day and has horrible range, unlike the real deals through LG."
_
"They connect well and I rarely had them disconnect, but the battery life was meh and anytime I turned my head, the volume would change or it would skip to the next song."
_
"Decent sound, decent range, but as other reviews have said it sometimes it disconnects requiring turning it on and off."
_
"I would say it is good item, but it still keep disconnect with my phone."

Ear-buds

Ear-buds:
"The unit works ok but the ear-buds do not stay in their caddy, This is very annoying either when the headset is stored in the vehicle and the ear piece is found sitting in the bottom of a cup holder or while it is being worn and the ear bud falls down between the seat belt and your shoulder."
_
"Its two faults are (1) the magnets are just too weak to -solidly- retain the ear-buds and (2) the Bluetooth connection seems a -bit- inconsistent -- you may get 25-30 feet from the transmitter with no loss, but if the source is in a belt-pack and it that pack slips -behind- one the BT can sometimes cut-out."
_
"I used them about an hour daily in the car and handled them with care because it looked like the ear-buds and their cable was a weak point in the design."
_
"The magnets are too weak to hold the ear-buds in place."
_
"One of the ear-buds was also broken and the little speaker fell right out of its enclosure."
_
"Cons:- After 1-2 hours using it, ear-buds will hurt you and feels very uncomfortable."
_
"I'd been listening to music through the ear-buds that came with the Galaxy S3 and was satisfied with those, in my opinion this headset provides equivalent audio quality as the Samsung ear-buds."
_
"If you're looking for a versatile, durable, quality set of headphones headset ear-buds for a great value, you've found it."
_
"The magnets for the ear-buds is a great innovation but you can't see them to get the buds in the exact right position to use them effectively."
_
"The noise isolation from the rubber ear tips was in adequate so he wore earmuffs over the ear-buds."
_
"These are, by far, the most comfortable ear-buds I have ever worn."

Echo

Echo:
"These had a weird echo and poor quality sound."
_
"Not so great during phone calls, the sound would echo on the headset."
_
"Only heard a few complaints for echo."
_
"I bought this headset because people on conference calls were complaining that they heard an echo when I talked with my wired headset."
_
"This NEW one echos now and everyone complains they can hear every little sound."
_
"They only problem i had was the echo in the background."
_
"I think this bluetooth is very convient but it has a really bad echo and had static from time to time."
_
"If I am making the call they work great...for a while then an echo starts and have to hang up and re-place the call."
_
"Connections are perfect every time, and I've not had a call with any echos or delays."
_
"I thought for a minute it had a echo sound, but everything seems good now."
_
"I must echo there comments as well."

Expectation

Expectation:
"High expectations on quality; nothing wrong with that!"
_
"Far exceeded expectations."
_
"The HBS 730 meets my expectations and I highly recommend it for anyone who loves quality sound."

Handle

Handle:
"then...the 3 months mark hit and I am no longer able to use these for all the sound does is cut in and out..so bad that I can handle it."
_
"Also, I'm not sure how well it will handle all the sweat."
_
"From a very disappointed person who made sure to handle the product with care."
_
"A hands free device that plays audio and handles phone calls well is hard to find under 100."
_
"I did notice SOME interference at times when I had the phone in a certain pocket, but it actually has just as good of actual range when I'm walking around the house listening to music on my computer, as do all my other BT devices except the Motorola which actually reaches some of the very most distant rooms or closets that this and other BT devices won't be able to handle."
_
"I do absolutely love the product and although some review claims the sound is not that great, I have found it to be awesome and more than you can handle in an ear piece, I doubt people can tolerate that much output and believe me I do like my music very loud."
_
"Very convient and easy to handle but leaves something to be desired as far as sound reproduction."
_
"They sound great, these just can handle the continues uses."
_
"I am a little rough on them, so I've been through a couple, but I am not going to complain about the durability if they can handle my abuse for 4-6 months, especially at the price they are now."
_
"The two devices pairing work extremely good, paired two phones and it always give priority to the one that have incoming call, I had music on one and I got a call from the other one and the headset handle it extremely well switch to the calling phone and when done went back to the other one with requiring me to do anything."
_
"I tried to use them paired with my newer Motorola Droid Maxx but the volume is unbearably loud and is basically useless (I found that this is a known issue with the most recent Android OS and is not the fault of the headphones).So while I can't attest to it's ability to handle phone calls, it works great for music."

Hook

Hook:
"The little hooks they come with are annoying to me so I just let them hang free."
_
"Works well just wish that the range was larger and I wish that the hooks didn't break so easy"
_
"The hook that hold the cord broke off so easily within the first week that I had it and the part that hold the mic 5 hay you put in your ear doesn't hold well at all"
_
"When my last one broke (the hook that goes over the ear) and I was out of replacement spares, I went for this bluetooth instead."
_
"I enjoy the bluetooth then two things I dont like is easily loosing the hook rings and when it vibrate is really loud and the caller can hear."
_
"Received the packaged that came from china last week of december, for two weeks of usage of the product the earbuds got crack and the plastic hooks are broken and lose."
_
"easy to hook up the blue tooth"
_
"I personally prefer ones that hook over my ear, but someone at work swore these were the BEST & didn't fall out."
_
"Great sound quality and no issues with hook up to my phone."
_
"Love it my daughter in law told me about the one she has so I told her to hook me up, I would recommend it to any one worth the money."

"The hook that hold the cord broke off so easily within the first week that I had it and the part that hold the mic 5 hay you put in your ear doesn't hold well at all"

_
"The latest purchase had: no hologram on the box, missing ear buds, no charger, photo copied unreadable manual, on off switch reversed, red ring instead of blue around call switch, no silver ring around Play Pause button, logo covered with Tear Invalid sticker."

"Calls are clear on my skyrocket, although the mic pics up wind which can make other people hard to hear you when its really windy, but thats expected."

"i bought this because my Nokia lumia 920 has a problem with people not being able to hear me (the noise canceling mic pics up my voice and cancels it out)."
_
"great product, poor quality construction, I don't use it to work out even, I use it setting at a desk,the insulation for the wires were the meet the base is already coming off.. Will post pics if possible.. so disappointed, apparently same thing is happening to my officemates who purchased them as well.. then LG want us to pay to ship to them, for REPAIR not replacement, and 5-7 day turn around, I THINK NOT, and will be buying a different set, thanks for nothing LG"

Indicator

Indicator:
"Ended up returning, the battery life was horrible and didn't sync with indicator."
_
"Another negative, I really missed my simple indicator tones."
_
"The first indicator is the charge light that turns a wonderful shade off magenta instead off red or blue when charging or charged."
_
"It's very handy to be able to mute myself in a phone call with a beep indicator as well, many other headsets on the market don't do this."
_
"The indicator light while charging is nice, too, red when charging, off when done."
_
"On a positive note, I liked how the phone now had a battery indicator for the headset."
_
"They have also improved the firmware so that the 730 connects more quickly with my devices, as well as giving a spoken indicator of the unit's battery strength, connection status, and power on off, instead of using tones for some of these."

Indoor

Indoor:
"People can hear me clearly if I'm indoor in a quiet room, but if I'm outdoor usually they have problem hearing me."
_
"* Easy Pairing* Good range (I haven't really tested it but it is good for indoor usage in an apartment)DISLIKE:* Nothing specific to these headphones since I've seen it with other BT headsets too; the sound might occasionally drop for a fraction of a second and get back up."
_
"Great for indoors but just the distance from my pocket to my head cuts the signal so I can't walk with my phone in my pocket...defeats the whole purpose"
_
"I just picked these up as a second pair...I have one of the first versions that came out and it still works fine...But I wanted a second pair to leave in my vehicle...The biggest difference I notice is that this version has voice prompting...Telling you what the battery level is and that it is paired and such...I have to say that this setup is near perfect...Indoors they work awesomely...I can stick my phone in my packet and do chores around the house with no wires...The buttons are easy to feel (You can't see them when you have them on) with access to call answer call end, vol up down on the left and play pause and skip back ahead on the right...This version works in concert with my phone's (iPhones 6+) volume control and you also get the small icon on your phone screen telling you battery level...Pretty useless for that but, it does tell you that they are on and paired when visible...I have bought upwards of 20-25 various BT headset devices (speakers also) and to this oint I don't see a competitor to this product in ease of use and design."
_
"The sound quality is good and the connection is good indoors."
_
"Indoors, at the gym, these LG's are as close to the perfect headphones as I've found."
_
"Pros:Great range indoors (over 30 feet in same room)Clear sound qualityGood charge life (at least 10 hours playback)Good fit; never falls offCons:Blue light flashes every few seconds when in useVolume range on headset itself is very narrowVolume in phone conversations is far too LOUD, even on lowest settingPackaged earbud tips didn't fit confortablyNone of these cons are enough to deduct a star for me, but I'll list them here with my workarounds."

"Supposedly this is only a problem with the iPhones and the Tone+ but it's a huge annoyance so if you own an iPhone please don't buy these."
_
"They do not work well with iPhones 5s."
_
"Don't buy these if you have an iPhone...I ignored the numerous reviews reports of connectivity problems, especially with iPhones but decided to believe the few reviews who said they work fine with their iPhones, and perhaps that is true."
_
"It seems that the bad reception problems are not just in relation to iPhones."

_
"If I am wrong, and this device is not in fact supposed to be able to work with iPhones, then both LG and Amazon need to alert their customers clearly, and some provision made to refund purchases made in reliance on the present sales information."

Jabra

Jabra:
"I have been using bluetooth headsets since they were $250 for a Jabra (circa 2004), and I have to say, this is about the worst one I have owned."

_
"The Jabra were terrible and I could hear the Gym's music so I went back to wired headset."
_
"love the controls and wire management i just didn't want to go to non changeable headphones because i ruin headphones earbuds fast the noise reduction is not as good as the jabra street but it doesn't add noise like the street 2 people can hear me in extremely loud areas but they say it is loud there."
_
"She used to complain about the Jabra headset often."
_
"Great value, fast shipment, works as advertised and am happy with my purchase, I still like my Jabra best but this is a close second and better for listening to music and any audio"
_
"I purchased this headset because I had gotten one for my son who thought it was pretty nice and since I had only used the Jabra bluetooth ear piece, I thought I would try this one."
_
"The Jabra sport does have included FM radio which is nice for outdoor athletics when you don't want to carry a device."
_
"Replaced with outstanding pair of over the ear Jabra and never looked back."
_
"Overall, for the money, function and quality, I'll still recommend this headset over Sony or Jabra."

"I noted most problems were experienced last year around nov-dec 2012..."
_
"The Bad: As other reviewers have also noted the range is not the greatest and I have had them cut in and out when I get close to the 30' limit of Bluetooth as well as other times when my phone was not in line of sight or even in its belt holster on my person."
_
"Unfortunately as many have noted, the connection quality was spotty at first."

_
"The cheap plastic power button broke by February."
_
"The plastic coating on the cord broke after medium use, and there is now wire exposed, rendering the product unsafe to use."

_
"Much more comfortable to wear all day than the hard plastic ear buds."

"My husband loves them for comfort, easy setup and long battery life."
_
"I just picked these up as a second pair...I have one of the first versions that came out and it still works fine...But I wanted a second pair to leave in my vehicle...The biggest difference I notice is that this version has voice prompting...Telling you what the battery level is and that it is paired and such...I have to say that this setup is near perfect...Indoors they work awesomely...I can stick my phone in my packet and do chores around the house with no wires...The buttons are easy to feel (You can't see them when you have them on) with access to call answer call end, vol up down on the left and play pause and skip back ahead on the right...This version works in concert with my phone's (iPhones 6+) volume control and you also get the small icon on your phone screen telling you battery level...Pretty useless for that but, it does tell you that they are on and paired when visible...I have bought upwards of 20-25 various BT headset devices (speakers also) and to this oint I don't see a competitor to this product in ease of use and design."
