  • Was hopeful, but this unit performed poorly

    2.0 out of 5 stars

    As always, not a fan of the long review - so I'll get straight to the point

    I bought this unit at the Apple Store in Santa Moni As always, not a fan of the long review - so I'll get straight to the point

    I bought this unit at the Apple Store in Santa Monica, CA, USA

    CONS
    - The unit does not play well with Siri at all
    - The dual mics do something to keep sound activated and do not allow Siri to think through your response
    - There is a long delay between the activation of Siri and then Siri responding to your request
    - Sometimes Siri would hang up as if it were waiting for more instructions (I really think there is something going on between the dual mics and how the iPhone is interpreting the signal)
    - Of 4 different units I have been testing in the last 5 days, this unit is the only one that lost connection with my iPhone 5 (iOS 6) four different times. (it would find the phone and sync up again automatically each time - but it dropped one test call because of it)

    PROS
    - It is a good looking device, and matches the "look" of the white iPhone 5 perfectly
    - It does not feel cheap in the hand or ear (feels worth the money)
    - the charger that comes in the box is great (it is a dual USB port car charger with the ability to plug in both your ear piece and your phone at the same time)
    - The life of the headset is displayed on the status bar of your iPhone

    I hope I received a faulty device and that it should not have performed so poorly, but I did, and it was too bad. I really wanted this device to work.

    Thanks.

    My first review ever and only because I was going to send a pal a link to this headset and saw the terrible reviews. Maybe because My first review ever and only because I was going to send a pal a link to this headset and saw the terrible reviews. Maybe because I have an iphone 4, without Siri, I've not experience the negative aspects but I find it a great bit of kit and less than 50% of the (frankly ugly looking) BOSE version. The light weight of the device is outstanding, and once you have fitted the correct (and easily interchangeable) ear plug, you'll soon forget you even have the device in your ear. It's battery life will long outlast the iphone's charge so no issues there (plus you get a battery meter on the iphone's home screen so never short of knowing its status). You also get told when the phone is connected/disconnected (has reminded me a few times that I have left the phone behind in the car/house so quite a nice perk for that). The image/feel is excellent, easily the best looking device out there in my opinion and the majority (let's face it) look awful. Finally the call quality is superb, very surprised to hear that being criticised, most people tell me it's much clearer on the headset then the phone. As for not hearing music in better quality from one reviewer I saw (are you kidding me that you buy a mono-ear device for listening pleasure?!) I actually thought the music playback was pretty good. It's honestly a brilliant device, especially if you factor in the money, should retail at £100 for something this well made, but if you want to spend the sort of money the BOSE device costs then go for it, but this device is so much more impressive for the cost and looks lots better. I would like it even more if it told you the caller's name but expect the Siri iphones might do that, otherwise am really glad I never read these reviews as would have missed out on a gem.

    I bought this headset while in London and I love it. The performance and the look and feel in my ear is very nice. When it got los I bought this headset while in London and I love it. The performance and the look and feel in my ear is very nice. When it got lost, I had to replace it immediately. I recommend it anytime, any day for busy people like me. The noise cancellation is also very good. My callers can't tell that I'm using a headset to make and receive calls.
    It was a little tricky to set up but once I did, it worked excellently well.

    I rated this a 1-star, but it should really be zero.

    While many aspects are good, including the incoming sounds, the outgoing s I rated this a 1-star, but it should really be zero.

    While many aspects are good, including the incoming sounds, the outgoing sound (what I sound like to others) is horrible, and virtually unusable. This could be perfect in every way, but when others can't hear you or the quality is so annoying as to disrupt calls, the device is worthless.
