5 out of 5 eggsMost Versatile Bluetooth Headphones To Date

This review is from: LG HBS-800.ACUSBKK Black Tone Ultra HBS-800 Bluetooth Stereo Headset

Pros: - Great overall sound
- Battery life is all that's promised and then some.
- Great spectrum of sound for buds

Cons: - I can't find them at the original sale price anymore to get another pair.

Other Thoughts: I wear these 10 hours a day during the week at my job, and they are great. Take time to get the proper ear gel because this will allow you to get the most out of them, I had to go with what I originally thought was too small of a gel to get the proper fit. This allows me to be able to push them in just a bit so I can hear my environment along with whatever is playing on the phone or going on in the call. Or when I don't have to worry about others because I'm in the office behind locked doors I can push them all the way in and enjoy the full spectrum of the music. And yes even for buds, they have a decent amount of bass and this is most evident when listening to hip hop and even some metal artists.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat 3rd Party Seller

This review is from: LG HBS-800.ACUSBKK Black Tone Ultra HBS-800 Bluetooth Stereo Headset

Pros: The item came and had a damaged feature. techsaurusllc was very fast at responding to my concerns and addressed them to keep me happy. You can definitly trust this seller.

In regards to the product itself; they are awesome! Took me a while to bit the bullet and get a pair, but I am glad I did for they sound fantastic and battery lasts a long time! Highly recommend the seller and product!

Cons: The earbuds can get caught and fall off easily if you are not careful! Nothing you can do to help this but don't be rough and dont dangle the earbuds when you have them around your neck

4 out of 5 eggsBetter than expected

This review is from: LG HBS-800.ACUSBKK Black Tone Ultra HBS-800 Bluetooth Stereo Headset

Pros: My girlfriend has an older model that I thought sounded like a tin can, but I read a lot about these and decided to give them a shot. They sound great. NO tin can sound. Bass and treble sound very good. Much better than previous models considering LG partnered with JBL to design these. Controls are easy to use and understand. Battery life is very good.

Paired it with my phone and PS Vita. Works great on both.

Cons: Everyone's ears are different and these are just a little bit uncomfortable for me personally. I'm sure I'll be fine with it the more I use them or try out the different sizes. My left ear canal is actually a bit smaller than my right ear canal so I will probably need to use two different sizes... Yeah I know that's a bit weird, so back off! J/K.

No USB power plug. Not a big deal for me as I have spares from previous devices.

Other Thoughts: I gotta laugh at the people saying that these aren't loud enough. Obviously they don't know how to operate the ear buds or the device it connects to. I turned these up so loud I thought I was going to damage my hearing. You not only have to consider the volume control on these ear buds but also the volume control on the device you're pairing it with such as your phone. Make sure that it is turned up on both devices!

3 out of 5 eggsDisappointed

This review is from: LG HBS-800.ACUSBKK Black Tone Ultra HBS-800 Bluetooth Stereo Headset

Pros: Battery charge lasts a long time, I like the battery charge status check when turning the unit on, the magnetic holding channels are an improvement over previous models. A fairly stylish look and the things stay in place around my neck throughout most activities.

Cons: The connection range is not as far as previous models. The maximum volume is noticeable less than my previous 700 model: I have a hard time hearing my music when mowing the lawn or with the car windows down, even when the volume is turned up to the maximum level.

Other Thoughts: Overall, I really enjoyed my HBS-700 headset for two years. When it finally came time to replace it, I expected this newer generation to be better...but, despite costing more, it is not. The weak volume on this set is very disappointing.

1 out of 5 eggshorrid, wretched, complete electronics fail nightmare

This review is from: LG HBS-800.ACUSBKK Black Tone Ultra HBS-800 Bluetooth Stereo Headset

Pros: look modern

Cons: chronic connection failures due to distance, as well as other various types of connection failures even at very close range

Other Thoughts: My new HBS-800 headphones exhibited their first malfunction (exactly as they were failingly designed to malfunction) in the first 3 minutes of use. LG is very aware of this persistent design problem. But their new faulty models keep flying off the shelves anyway, based solely on the great buzz created by the original and vastly superior HBS-700 model, which sadly, are no longer available (except at manufacturer LG's website, at time of this review!). But beware, lame HBS-700 counterfeits abound on the web! In fact at this point, virtually all brand new 700's still seen for sale on the web are counterfeit.

The old HBS-700 design (discontinued) was the very first incarnation of this new style of around-the-neck Bluetooth headphones offered by LG. The HBS-700 models were VASTLY superior to all the newer versions that followed. I have bought/owned probably 15 new pairs of HBS-700. I've heartily recommended the 700's to a few friends, who all ended up loving them too. Yes, they eventually wear out, but only after serving their purpose wonderfully. I wear them every day, literally all day long for use with my iPhone and home PC, immediately swapping to a freshly charged pair whenever batteries get low. So yes, I do mange to wear them out faster than most people, I think. Very satisfied with how long they last, considering the hours of use I get out of them. They are amazingly convenient.

But all the newer "updated" models go into an audio-strobe freak mode if there is a break in audio content, even if the break is only for a few seconds. (such as the 2-3 seconds of no audio between videos in a YouTube video playlist) When the audio source finally kicks in again, you will then only hear every other word or so. The audio "strobes". ...let me try to make a quick example... I will attempt TO mimic the chronic design FLAW problem that occurs, by capitalizing every FEW words I write. The WORDS that are in caps ARE the only PARTS you will hear. ALL the other words WILL not be heard. AND the headphones stay IN that mode until YOU turn the headphones OFF and then BACK on again. ...Sound fun? As I said, it took only about 3 minutes of normal use for this problem to first crop up, then I had to fully reset the headphones (off, wait, on) to get them to work correctly again. There is no other solution I've ever found. I really hoped LG had bothered to solve this chronic and infuriating problem in all their newer models by now. No such luck.

Avoid these 800 headphones like the plague! Honestly, only people who have never used the old/original HBS-700 model could possibly find anything good to say about these new HBS-800's. So that explains any positive reviews slipping through. Ignorance is bliss, as they say. No offense intended, I simply mean people legitimately "don't know" the difference, i.e., what they're missing.
The old 700 model had a Bluetooth range of about 30 feet. The useful range on these HBS-800's is about 3 to 5 feet. Not kidding. Even that

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Overall

This review is from: LG HBS-800.ACUSBKK Black Tone Ultra HBS-800 Bluetooth Stereo Headset

Pros: The headset is easy to work with, great call quality and the built in features, such as holding the volume down button to get the current battery level, are great!

Cons: The only gripe i have is that the volume is not as loud as i would like it to be. I love loud music and this just does not satisfy for me on that.
