Love it. (love my old one before the wife lost it). The fact that I have now bought 2 must count for something!!
Range is very good. When used with our simple, low end Samsung Gusto flip phone, conversation was fine at 20ft, had a small amount of noise but usable at 30 ft through a wall with a metal door. the call was still connected, though quite choppy, when headset was at 100 ft away outside the house! (Range is rated at 33ft.)
Since it uses aptX codex, there is no visible delay in the audio while watching video from a source that also supports the aptX codex. I have tested that on a Macbook Air and my TV using a TosBlue transmitter. (Mac iOS devices to do support aptX, so those to have noticeable audio delay - Apple needs to fix that!!!) The voice prompts to alert you when On, Off, Paired, etc are very nice.
I don't understand why Samsung pulled this product from the US market first introduced in 2011. Since I bought from UK, it comes with a UK wall charger, but my Samsung phone charger works (very similar specs) so that is not a problem for me.
Shame that these are not being made any longer.
I couple this with the Telme2 Toslink to Bluetooth and I am set.
Now I can enjoy the high quality stereo and it does not disturb my wife or the neighbors.
It really enhances the TV watching experience.
I also like I can use any headset.
The company offered great customer service fixing an issue I had promptly.
I recommend this unit for anyone wanting Bluetooth mobile capability for phone calls or listening to music without having the bluetooth receiver up against your head.
As I required a bluetooth headset, only to listen to traffic prompts on a motor bike, the only choices available in the motorbike shops/sites were the ones that had a microphone, plus all the other extras. These cost around £150 for a good set.
Being a version 3, the connection to the sat nav was easy. Tested it on a 400 mile trip, and even at motorway speeds, the prompts were clear. With the two 'in-the-ear' ear buds, it also blocked the other
road noises, but not to the point of total block.
The length of the cable is adequate, as it just clips onto the inside collar of your shirt, and does not get in the way at all.
Apart from the above, it can also be connected to your phone too; But I never use my phone whilst riding/driving.
It is an excellent product.
The unit is compact and can be used with your own headphones if you want. If you cycle/hike etc It allows you to keep your phone safe and dry in a bag/rucksak without the headphone cable connecting you to it or you having to keep your phone in a pocket that could potentially get exposed to the elements. It has the volume/play/pause buttons on it so operating your music is easy. The buttons are quite low profile on both sides of the device so you do end up pressing buttons inadvertently if you have clumsy fingers. Saying that though,they don't stick out enough to get accidentally pressed either.
If you have a decent set of headphones, the sound is very good. There is the occassional droput in sound but I don't know if that is the phones fault or not. This does only seem to be when you are moving about so it could be signal interference. It doesn't happen enough for it to be a problem though. If you receive a call in the great outdoors and the speaker is not close to your voice, the mic does have a tendency to pick up clothes rustling or wind...and callers mention that they have difficulty hearing you (but hey...what did we do before mobile phones and we wanted to go for a walk ?).
This is worth the money for what it does. I use mine for cycling. I also use it plugged into the AUX IN cable on my stereo.
It has a good standby battery life and if you keep it topped up with the included charger you can't go wrong. Four stars due to the occasional sound drop out. Hope this helps
-The voice prompts that let you know when the device is on, off, connected, etc. are great, much better than beeps and tones!
-The button controls are raised so they're easy to find and use.
-The clip is very sturdy, holds in place even with heavy movements.
-The battery life is better than average, so it still last more than one day under heavy use (I listen to music stored on my phone continueosly).
-Connected quickly and easily to my Samsung Galaxy S4, plus they both use the same usb charger so less stuff to carry around.
-The only downside so far is that the call audio and the media audio are seperate functions on the Galaxy S4 and the headset keeps disconnecting from the media audio, so every so often I need to reconnect it.
-No FM tuner like the Sony WM600. :(
-So one minor annoyance and several great qualities = good product that I recommend getting!
Nicest thing is that it will still work while charging. That makes it great in the car ... play tunes from my phone, via this, into the car's AUX input. Phone call? just touch the button and talk.
The only issue is that the Volume and Track buttons on the sides are awkward to use without inadvertently pushing one on the other side. Takes some getting used to.
Oh, and the included headphones are total crap. But that's why there is a jack, so you can use your own really good headphones.
The provided ear plugs were quite comfortable to wear thanks to the soft surrounds but they lack bottom end.
It paired very easily to my Galaxy S2 and needed very little fiddling to be up and running.
However there was an unpleasant surprise when I first opened the box. The power adapter will not fit an Australian wall socket. This wasn't mentioned on the website, and would have been nice to know.
Since I ordered through an Australian website (mobilezap.com.au) I had expected an adapter I could actually use.
Thankfully you can also charge it with a standard Micro USB cable. (Not included in box).
This works great, and pairs with no problem at all.
Sound quality is great.
Only minor problem is its easy to catch the button & redial the last number called but it is only a minor issue.
