3 out of 5 eggsMixed bag

This review is from: LG HBS-730 Black TONE+ Wireless Bluetooth Stereo Headset

Pros: Convenient. Sound quality is fine. Controls actually work with the phone.

Cons: Temperamental. They seem to drop their connection without any perceivable reason. Usually cycling the power gets you back up and running. From the audible tones the device produces when it's connecting, it sounds like it's attempting to connect even though it's already connected - if that makes any sense.

I had a similar model to these for about two years.

Other Thoughts: I'm slightly disappointed with these. None of the issues I have are unbearable, just unfortunate.



The other con is it's a little laggy in connecting and responding to control inputs. Not 100% sure if it''s my phone (my phone is somewhere between a Galaxy S2 and stone tablet) or the headset so I put this item in "other".

I have a high tolerance for these kinds of things but others would do well to steer clear.

5 out of 5 eggsLG Bluetooth Headset

This review is from: LG HBS-730 Black TONE+ Wireless Bluetooth Stereo Headset

Pros: Money!!! This is the best product for the price. I do not know how people live without one of these. Battery life blows my mind, and very clear when you talk.

Cons: Wish it was slightly smaller, but you can't have everything.

4 out of 5 eggsDecent

This review is from: LG HBS-730 Black TONE+ Wireless Bluetooth Stereo Headset

Pros: I really like the button layout and how easy it is to find the buttons though touch only. The headset is very light weight, so light that I forget if I am wearing it. The battery life is excellent, I easily make it through a 9 hour work day without recharging. Pairs up to my phone really easily.

Cons: The charging cable is a bit short. 6 inches more would have been awesome. I had to buy a USB bluetooth adapter so that I could use this headset with my laptop. The audio occasionally skips or the quality just dies, even though I haven't moved from my chair. This is fixed by turning the headset off and back on (See other thoughts). Annoying but not a deal breaker.

Other Thoughts: The LG box, not the Newegg box, came smashed like someone punched it fairly hard. I am not sure if I can link the damaged box with the audio cut out or loss of quality but it is suspicious.
Overall, Newegg did a great job getting it to me within the projected timeline. I am just disappointed and suspicious of the damaged LG box.
4 stars since the LG box came damaged.

2 out of 5 eggsNot good for laptops

This review is from: LG HBS-730 Black TONE+ Wireless Bluetooth Stereo Headset

Pros: Compact

Cons: Microphone audio quality is terrible when used with my laptop and there is a delay when watching videos. Slight delay when watching videos on mobile devices.

Other Thoughts: I am returning it since the main reason for wanting it was to use for video conferencing on my laptop.

5 out of 5 eggs5/5, would purchase again

This review is from: LG HBS-730 Black TONE+ Wireless Bluetooth Stereo Headset

Pros: 4 months of almost daily use.

Very lightweight, can barely tell they are there when i'm wearing them. Fit nicely under a jacket collar if the weather isn't great. Audio quality is very good and I've had no problems with incoming or outgoing audio during phone calls. Audio quality for music and online radio is also more than good enough in my opinion.

Other reviewers have said they lose connectivity when their devices are only a couple of feet apart. My phone is always in my pocket and I have not experienced this issue even once.

Cons: Occasionally audio becomes choppy or distorted, however cycling bluetooth off and on again on my phone has always resolved this. I'm running non-stock firmware on my phone so this issue is possibly the fault of my phone and not the headset. I could count on one hand the number of times the audio is become distorted though.

The small plastic bits that are meant to minimize slack of the wire between the neck piece and the earbuds slips around a little too easily. A very minor annoyance.

5 out of 5 eggsThis thing rocks!

This review is from: LG HBS-730 Black TONE+ Wireless Bluetooth Stereo Headset

Pros: Good sound quality for BT
Design is great for over the neck
Quite comfortable for running and walking
Lightweight..some times I hardly notice it's still on my neck.
Battery life is great.
BT signal is good, long range.

Cons: The buttons. I have pretty big fingers apparently because press on these buttons are a hassle for me! I'd wish they make the buttons with a different material like rubber so that I can feel them. As of this model, I feel they are just too small and I can't feel the difference between the plastic.

I'd also wish they made the wire a little more thick or of stronger plastic..I feel sometimes like they're going to rip right off.

I know it's BT, but I'd just love it with more bass..not really a con because it's got a lot of bass for a BT headphone.

Other Thoughts: Overall, great quality headphones. For bluetooth connectivity (wireless), the sound is incredible. They can't be compared to Dre's but the sound is good enough for running or just listening on the go.

I've had several BT headphones and this one beats out the rest. It's comfortable to wear. The battery is long lasting. The sound quality is great (for BT). The plastic earpiece is comfortable too.

Overall, I would HIGHLY recommend these BlueTooth headphones from LG if you need one, both for casual listening / talking on the phone and workouit!

5 out of 5 eggsWork awesome

This review is from: LG HBS-730 Black TONE+ Wireless Bluetooth Stereo Headset

Pros: Comfortable. Easy to use. Great sound. Very long battery life.

Cons: They could be slightly lighter. Occasional "blips" in the bluetooth streaming, but nothing too annoying.

Other Thoughts: I was wary because the product rating isn't all that high overall. But I'm extremely satisfied with this purchase. They are exactly what I was looking for in a bluetooth headset. Highly recommended!

1 out of 5 eggsThey don't work, poor LG customer service.

This review is from: LG HBS-730 Black TONE+ Wireless Bluetooth Stereo Headset

Pros: N/A

Cons: I purchased this headset for a trip out of the country. Whenever I use them, they constantly lose connectivity.

When I'm sitting in a seat and trying to listen to something and I shift my head, they lose connectivity and the sound cuts in and out.
They show pictures of people using them when working out. If I try to walk with them on, it cuts out about every second.

They're basically useless. I get better quality from the free airline earbuds.

Other Thoughts: I contacted LG and I have to pay to ship them back. Very disappointing and a very poor customer experience.

I was out of the country on a trip and didn't get a chance to return them within 30 days after buying them from Newegg so I'm stuck working (or not working as the case seems to be) with LG.

5 out of 5 eggsSo happy with these!

This review is from: LG HBS-730 Black TONE+ Wireless Bluetooth Stereo Headset

Pros: Works great with Bluetooth 4.0.
The design is so perfect for the gym and activities! No weight on the cords to pull them out of your ears!
Not sure why people are upset with reception. I'm a tall guy and my phone is in my bottom cargo pants pocket and it never cuts out.

Cons: none
