    Excellent (but not in-ear)

    • Written by from BASINGSTOKE

    Bought these in the local Apple store as I was fed up with wires breaking on headphones. As others have said the sound quality is excellent and they work extremely well, but they'll not be for everyone. They're not in-ear headphones so they'll not block out all the noise around you. Personally I like that, if I want complete isolation I have some HF3s with custom sleeves, but when I'm walking around town or walking the dogs I want to hear what's going on around me as well as listening to music. These are perfect for that.

    Battery life is good - does me for a day without problems. The controls, are nicely laid out. Especially the buttons for Play/Pause and taking Calls which are large and on the outside of the ear so it's very easy to hit them if you need to.

    I find them comfortable and easy to wear. A nice touch is that when you pause the music, they automatically go to Open Mic so you can hear what's going on around you very clearly.

    I'm using them on a iPhone 4S and they work perfectly well. Occasional stutter on the music, but that's partly to do with the Bluetooth standard when it has to channel hop in a noisey EM environment. It certainly doesn't happen often enough to bother me.

    Cons: The only ones I can think of is that they are very obvious when your wearing them.

    Works with MBP as well

    • Written by from Kirkby-in-Ashfield

    I got these headphones for Xmas. Primarily for use with my MBP. I do a lot of concalls, and video calls, and wanted something hands free and cable free. Plantronics couldn't say that they would work with the MBP, because they hadn't been tested. I'm please to report the work just dandy with iPhone4, iPAD2 and MBP...

    the best bluetooth headset I used

    • Written by from Birmingham

    After getting this headset I was impressed with sound quality (is better than Apple In-Ear
    headphones or some other wired headphones) and is most comfortable from bluetooth headset and headphones I been using-I was wearing it 5 hours and durning it almost forgotten about having it on me...I love battery indicator on the iPhone and when you press power button durning listing it will say how much listening time you have left.

    Thoroughly recommened - and have

    • Written by from Milton Keynes

    Bought these as a bluetooth headset for use in my car but also because I liked the idea of having wireless earphones.

    Pros: I would find it very difficult to fault these. They're extremely user friendly and being relieved of wires is fantastic!

    The sound quality is great for the music, much better than I expected. I have Bose QC3's and whilst the quality obviously isn't that good, they're much better than my sennheisers.

    Bass boost is a good feature to have.

    Calls are clear although a little weird not having a discernable mic to speak into.

    The over-ear design is comfortable and stable although I'm sure not everyone will agree with this.

    Really cool power indicator on iPhone.

    Cons: Call quality could be better. I think this is the case with most bluetooth headsets but the person I called said although I was clear, I sounded a little robotic.

    excellent bluetooth headset

    • Written by from comber

    got these to replace my second pair of faulty motorola s9 hd's, the sound quality from these is MUCH better than the motorola, the over the ear design with the cable around the back as opposed to the rigid design of the motorolas and most other bluetooth headsets also make this the most comfortable to wear.

    so far ive used them in the gym and find the design much more practical than the rigid motorola's, this headset is so light you can very easily forget that your wearing it!

    outdoors it keeps the signal much better than the s9's walking around with my iphone in my pocket they havent lost signal on me once.

    they also appear to be much more sweat resistant than the s9's which is what caused so many of the faults with that headset.

    would definitely recommend this headset to anyone who is looking for a reasonably priced, great quality bluetooth headset!
