Eh.

Sam G., Newegg
14 June 2010
  • Summary: I got this headset fairly cheap at the time of purchase; they recently passed the hands free law in Oregon and I needed a headset. I have a Verizon Droid Eris that I use this with. Overall I'd call it an okay headset, but I'm looking for another.
  • Pros: Works fine for the most part. Seems perfectly adequate for environments without a lot of noise.
  • Cons: Using this in my car is problematic. It seems like every other time I talk to somebody they tell me that they hear this awful noise on their end. The battery doesn't seem to really hold its own either. I would agree with another user's assessment of about 5 hours talk time (tops).

Functional

Thomas L., Newegg
4 May 2010
  • Summary: Overall it's a worthy purchase if you can get it cheap enough, but it's nothing special feature and performance wise. Add in that it's got a number of quirks listed in the cons that may put people off it.
  • Pros: Very light, Comfortable once adjusted correctly, Acceptable range, Quality build, Has a great "feel" to it, Battery level indicator is VERY handy, Works well with the iPhone 3G and 3GS despite what other reviewers have said!
  • Cons: Battery life is quite short (5 hours TOPS), very fiddly to get fitted on ear correctly, Audio quality is uninspiring, Uses a large "wall wart" for a charger, "Noise Canceling" just seems to simply mute the microphone so those you are talking to will hear blank gaps in your conversation on the oth...

iPhone incompatible

Anonymous, Newegg
26 March 2010
  • Summary: I emailed Nokia tech support and never got a response. I called them and was told "the device may pair with non-Nokia phones, but may or may not work" (verbatim). She said I could send the device into the repair dept for evaluation, but when I asked if it would be tested with an iPhone, she said I'd...
  • Pros: Lightweight works well without wireless - I give it one star for incompatibility with iPhones and inadequate sales information.
  • Cons: I bought 2 of these, a white one for my wife's iPhone 3g and a black one for my iPhone 3gs. The headset is unusable if the iPhone wireless is turned on - the electronic chatter and static make it impossible to hear the other party. Turning off wireless - even while ON a call - makes the headset w...

"Acceptable" little device

JAYCE C., Newegg
24 March 2010
  • Summary: Been using this device for almost one month now, and about 60% of the time, both party will hear some static during our convesation (we can still heard our conversation clearly, but it's a bit annoying with the static in the background).
  • Pros: - Good deal when it's on sale - Light weight - Long lasting battery - Love the ear gel (only if you buy the RETAIL one in store, they have 3 x ear gel!!)
  • Cons: - Too Sensitive (other party can hear everything in my surrouding) - Some Static on both end during our conversation

Great for the price

Anonymous, Newegg
22 March 2010
  • Summary: Overall, for the $8 after rebate that I spent it has been a great buy. It paired up very easily with my Palm Pre and worked right away. I have used it quite a bit. I use it without the over-the-ear piece and with the right sized rubber piece that fits in your ear it stays put, even moving around.
  • Pros: -Price (paid $8 after $15 MIR) -Simplicity of use -Battery Life -Comfortable -Sound quality (most of the time)
  • Cons: -Some crackling/static at times. Occasionally I get some static through the headset but it doesn't happen very often. -Unable to use for music, but I wouldn't want to do that on a non-stereo headset anyway.

Get what you pay for "nightmare"

Perry G., Newegg
12 March 2010
  • Summary: Move the button to the front so it presses against your check bone. Press once to voice activate and press again to hang up. Move volume control to top of device where it is more intuitive. Nokia device won't even work with one of their own phones
  • Pros: Sound is good for the money
  • Cons: Serious firmware problems. Calling is ok using the button on the device. Hanging up is a nighmare using the button. The unit does not seem to want to hang up properly especially if you try to hang up when you get someone's voice mail. About half the time it won't disconnect. Sometimes if you keep...

my original title was deemed potentially offensive

james h., Newegg
9 March 2010
  • Summary: it sure would be nice if i could get a replacement ear loop (or a couple dozen given how long the thing lasted), but tracking one down is impossible. i paid $25 for 2 weeks of use. a 3 cent item broke, and now i am out of luck. nicely done, nokia. this will be the last of your products i purchase.
  • Pros: please.
  • Cons: noisy. ear loop broke into two pieces with light use after two weeks.
