1 out of 5 eggsThese are garbage

Pros: They are wireless(bt), they fold up, they have a protective case.

Cons: The first pair I ordered had a blown left channel out of the box.
I RMA'd them.
My new set has lost the ability to charge its battery in less than a month. Essentially my wireless headset is now wired.

Other Thoughts: That is 2 out of 2 garbage units. I got these because of the price and the protective case, I thought Arctic would release a decent product, but I must have been wrong.

Unfortunately I no longer have the box these came in which newegg requires. It isn't worth paying the shipping to return them to arctic for the warranty.

DO NOT buy these garbage headsets.

3 out of 5 eggsworks, though uncomfortable

Pros: works nicely with good sound

Cons: rather uncomfortable, it sits on your ears and pulls.

Other Thoughts: the device seems have it's own buffering.. you can be 5 minutes or more behind if you are roaming alot from your bluetooth device (desktop in this case).

which is nice if you are just listening to music,
though annoying if you are looking for sound/video syncing, like games and movies.

3 out of 5 eggsExtended Review

Pros: I am going to explain a lot about these headsets. I have grown to love them and hate them at the same time, but in my case I am a power user of headsets like these.
To start with, these things are a dime a dozen and are proliferated all over the web as a cheap behind the neck Bluetooth headset. I have been using my headset for about two years now and have intimately come to know the drawbacks of using them.

Pros: Cheap! These are wireless, long lasting battery life, and comfortable to wear as they do not suffer from the misplaced grooves of the old logitech style headsets, nor are they riddles with the uncomfortable ear canal based speakers. They are cushioned and you can easily drop them down around your neck. The controls are cheap, but simple and work efficiently. My favorite part about this device is its comfort to wear, and that I can connect it to both my computer and my cell phone so that I do not have to purchase more than one audio device to take anywhere I want to go for personal listening. It comes with a built in microphone so that you can make calls, and the quality on a cellphone is high and great.

Cons: Here comes the bad news.

These are horrible to use on a computer. No Bluetooth headset at v2.1 or lower works well on a computer. The audio tends to lag behind if multiple programs are opened up. If you want to use your headset like you do with your phone for any VoIP program like Skype, Ventrillo or raid call, while you are using any other program with sound, you will inevitably find out that audio quality drops significantly. Dual channel audio stops, so any game that would have a difference between left and right speaker homogenizes and audio lag may occur as well.

Other Thoughts: Overall, I recommend this as a mobile device headset, or a headset for those who want to play on the computer without VoIP or are only using one application at a time (Seriously, who does that? Multi-core processors are for so much more.) But you can really find a better value on ones identical to these in the "jungle".

Sidenote: I would pay much more than what these are going for if all of the above issues were resolved. Bluetooth v4.0 I believe would fix that, as v3.0 increases bandwidth and v4.0 significantly reduces power consumption. A behind the neck wireless bluetooth v4.0 headset with speakers that do not stick into your ear currently do not exist for sale in the US. Even a Bluetooth v3.0 is very hard to come by. This surprises me as iphone 4s came with v4.0 compatibility and a comparable headset has not come on the market. If someone wants to make a lot of money, start building them and selling them please!

3 out of 5 eggsUncomfortable

Pros: They are easy to set up with older MSI X Starkey transmitter and Samsung SIII but they are Uncomfortable. I have yet to check battery life for I can’t wear long than three hours. Sound seems to be good on both transmitters.

Cons: Uncomfortable

Other Thoughts: Make sure you have Bluetooth adapter. I am going to buy new 4.0 to see if it makes a deference on sound.

2 out of 5 eggsMeh.

Pros: Behind the neck
Light weight
Comfortable
Comes with a Pouch
Easy to connect
Easy Instruction

Cons: Didn't work well.
Sound cuts off.
The mic transmits what it picks up through the speakers sometimes.
Disconnects.

Other Thoughts: This might be my laptops blutooth problem, I'm not sure. Other people like this, I don't. I've connected other devices via blutooth fine, this was not so fine.

5 out of 5 eggsP311

Pros: Sync'd right up, sounds awesome. So far so good.

Cons: The desc. here states 70 hrs. playback, box says 20. Even 20 is good enough for me, not work dropping an egg at this point. Shipping was 2 days past due, but I wasn't in a hurry.

Other Thoughts: I would recommend these to anyone needing a nice cheap BT headset.

5 out of 5 eggsExceeds my expectations

Pros: Wireless, no getting tangled up with cables.
Long battery life
Mini-USB charging (no buying a second charger)
Comfortable
Excellent sound quality

Cons: None that I can think of

Other Thoughts: This is my first bluetooth headset, previously I was using a Logitech USB unit. This is more comfortable, which is a plus for all-day use. I get 2-3 days of solid use out of it. While I haven't measured it, the 20-hour listed life is legit.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat headset

Pros: - This headset has ridiculously long battery life.
- The controls on the right ear are easy to get used to.
- Excellent sound quality
- very light, nice carrying case

Cons: When you put your hand over the right ear (where the bluetooth receiver must me), you lose signal and the sound cuts out. So you have to get used to adjusting the volume a certain way so this doesn't happen.

Other Thoughts: I've never has this style of headphone. It takes a little while to get used to.
