4 out of 5 eggs>9000

Pros: Small
Cheap
LED indicator
Charging port is USB Micro B
battery life good for day to day use. it can drain quick if you make lengthy calls.

Cons: A tad bit on the heavy side. 12 grams. The ear hook is made out of plastic. Unless it's in 'just the right spot' it can become quite painful. The ear piece is a kind of hard to get in and stay with out falling out, but that could just be user error.

Other Thoughts: For what your buying it dose the job just fine. only took off one egg because it's sometime painful to ware. It works fine.

4 out of 5 eggsI don't understand. . .

Pros: Sounded good, long lasting battery, comfortable

Cons: Mic wasn't great

Other Thoughts: So many people said they hated this headset. I guess I got lucky with mine because it worked great and nothing was wrong with it. o.o For what I paid for it, it was a wonderful device. The talk time per charge was absolutely true and it was comfortable and sounded good. If it was heavier, it might not have been so comfortable, but since it's so lightweight, it never bothered me. The only con was that sometimes I sounded far away to people on the other line. This headset worked great with my phone and my PS3 for about two months, up until my niece (my sister's dog) chewed it up. :( RIP headset. You served me well and were well worth the $10 I spent on you.

1 out of 5 eggsWon't holds a charge

Pros: Small, light, cheap, packaging fully recyclable

Cons: Won't hold a charge, wasn't able to enjoy the joys of hands free calling.

Other Thoughts: NewEgg.com should not have this item listed. From what I can tell from other users; this item is not even worth the materials it is made out of.
