Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from Great Headset. I use my headset for about 8-10 hours a day and it is wonderful. I have my headset setup to my PC, my desk phone and also my mobile. I would highly recommend this product to anyone who is always on the phone and has multiple communication devices.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Gyroslynky from Good but could be improved.. Received and set up was easy. Quick start guide provided details on set up and pairing, which was very easy (easier than some speakers). I should note I did not set up the headset to work through my computer. I am also not typically a headset-anything user (gaming, phone, etc.) so I have a bit more unfamiliarity with headset usage than some. It’s been years since I’ve used a Bluetooth. Headset extremely comfortable. Lots of points of adjustment, such as each ear can swiveling, and padded. Lightweight so could wear for up to hours at a time, though they are leather so can get a bit warm resting against the ear. Boom mike allows for either side of head. There is an on-off switch in the headset. Buttons on the base show which device the headset connected with (options are computer, cellphone, and, if hooked in with optional adapters, a landline. I did not test that option as I don’t have a landline or VOIP). The volume worked well, as there is a volume slider on the headset or use the phone. Test calls indicated that people picked up no background noise (this included doing dishes, running water and the like). That was great. However, range of the headset was touted to be impressive and maybe I expected more but I got 100 ft and call would go garbled in the test call side and then suddenly hang up. This was consistent. If I stayed within that range I was fine. There was no warning on my end, no beeping or anything to warn me call fidelity was lost and it would hang up. I would have liked a beep or some warning. Calling and pickup was a little frustrating, as the set up was intuitive but not this aspect. With iPhone marked as connected and headset on, I expected a call I was making to ring through the headset and go through immediately via the headset. This never happened. Despite being securely connected before dialing, calls would never ring through on headset and the moment someone would pick up, it would flip back to iPhone. The no ringing feedback meant I did not know if they picked up and with it reverting to iPhone upon connection, there was some scrambling so I could hear them. If someone called me, it would ring through the headset (awesome) but immediately revert to the iPhone upon picking up the headset and dropping the mic. Found this a bit disappointing. On a personal level, because I’m out of habit of wearing a headset for anything, I found myself disliking how I sounded through the headset. My voice would be very muffled and distorted, making me try and focus too much on what I thought I said rather than a conversation. Did not affect the caller. This was probably just a personal thing but it was distracting enough I stopped using the headset for a while. Overall review: I think this would be a great headset for anyone who anticipates being a heavy user of a headset. It’s comfortable and has good reviews for test listeners. Someone else may be more dedicated to investigating the connection switching for calling/pickup. For a casual user like myself, who either uses the phone on speaker or does own a bluetooth (somewhere), the issue of connection switcharoos was frustrating. It kept me from using for casual calls and the range dropping calls in my house also kept me from using the headset for long dedicated calls, because apparently I like to move around the house.
